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.

  5. 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.

    :D I remember doing similar although it was only checking zero on the squirrel feeder on my back fence and I took the shot and it was really low and a strange sound, I took another and again it was low, so I went to look at the feeder and saw there were fibres surrounding the pellets I had fired. I had shot through the BBQ cover, in through the back side out through the front, Doh!

    Regards
    Peter

    Anyone who cares to admit it has been there.

    I've hit the snorkel on the Landcruiser and taken a piece of pvc out the back door frame searching for the extra few metres of back garden that clearly extends right through the house to the front door :facepalm:

    Ahhh, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one. Let's see... I've shot...

    Living room wall twice
    Garden wall thrice
    Shed glass twice
    Sofa once

    Yep. Thankfully the sofa was with the R-10 22 and it hit the thick leather piping and is barely noticeable. The 177 would have torn through it. The living room wall I rapidly repaired with PollyFilla ready mix, again barely noticeable. The garden wall was taken care of with some quick dabs of white paint (rendered wall) but I couldn't do much to hide the shed window so continue to deny any knowledge but she strongly suspects I did it

    It was loaded in the house because I was shooting crows in the field from my kitchen. I didn't realise the barrel was overlapping the bottom of the plastic surround until I fired. It gave me quite a start. Lol

    Total class. A little bit of pee nearly came out reading that.
    What makes the sofa ? Seems very durable and I'm in the market for a new backstop

    Just remembered one of the garden chair that had been folded up, I shot one of those as well, fortunately it was in the middle of the thickest part, a bit of wax covered it well.

    A good few years ago, I used to zero in the garden from a makeshift bag on a workbench.
    The bag in question was a rather attractive bean bag that we used in the lounge.

    So I bought my first Ultra. Lovely and compact.

    First couple of shots bang on the money grouping wise so I adjusted the turrets to bring into zero then it went right off the boil.
    Shot after shot with no consistent point of impact.

    Then I caught a glimpse of something through the scope.
    Turns out it was the filling from the wife's bean bag.
    The rifle had sunk into the bag and at least 8 shots had ripped right through the bean bag and shredded it big time
