1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item

  6. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I actually learned something from an Airgun magazine!!

    I took a half priced subscription with my insurance and still haven't read the 6 mags, which are from 2019, they seem to read like adverts these days, I'm not sure if it's just me but they definitely used to be better written ?

    The article was on HFT and about follow through ( stop giggling) I read it, read it again, tried it and it worked!

    I've read plenty of times of people saying they can see the pellet in flight, well up until doing this I never have, 22 or 177, but I have now.

    I did a search on the forum, plenty of times follow through is mentioned, but that's it, you need good follow through.

    I only really shoot squirrels these day's and what I do is pretty much just natural, take the shot, squirrel falls over and I'm working the bolt reloading , I don't even really think about it, but I must be moving while the pellet is still in flight which is why I don't see the pellet in flight.

    I tried this with my .22 rapid the other week, and yes I can see the massive pellet smashing into the leaf :eek: clear as you like.

    I then did the same thing with the .177 R10 and I saw the pellet again, amazing, and so simple.

    We all know about follow through but how many do this? It's obviously just keeping you still for a fraction longer but something I've never done, normally I squeeze the trigger, pellet is away and my hand is moving for the bolt subconsciously.

    Give it a try guys and see what you think.

    Once the pellet is released, I tend to keep the trigger right where it is, rather than pulling it back all the way. My trigger is very light. Once the pellet has landed, I release the trigger and reload.

    That's what I'm trying to do now, I'd never even thought of it.
    If it adds to my accuracy then I'm happy :D

    If you follow through like that on all shots, I'll be willing to bet you will be killing more , or scoreing better on the target. Have to remember, the bullet doesn't even clear the bore that fast in a powder burner, so you can see how much longer it takes in an air gun. Same holds true for archery. ." follow through".

    As I pull the trigger, the pellet leaves the barrel and hits the target. At this point, I still have a long way to go before the trigger bottoms out, so I've just been doing enough follow through to matter, then stopping once the pellet has fully left the bore. Right or wrong, this is my technique. I am always happy to try new things and continue to improve.
