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.

    Yes, they were supposed to arrive sometime this month..

    Solware and Ramsbottom have them on their websites awaiting stock.
    (I’m sure other RFD’s too)

    Given FX's history on delivery dates, I won't hold mt breath!
    Looks useful, but then its a chrony when all is said and done. Its not going to do anything any other chrony cant do, and its a bit annoying that you have to connect to a phone or other device- a basic readout would be nice for those days when your phone dies, wont connect, or is just somewhere else. Also 3 AA batteries for 6 hours use is a bit more than most of us are used to- normal chrony tends to get a battery on its birthday! And while the lack of dependence on light is certainly welcome, the cheap chrony that has been going round of late that works on IR has aready beaten that problem for a tenth of the price.

    I have to sat Giles was really struggling on that one..
    "Look! If I change the power of my gun the chrony gives a different reading!"
    "Look! I can shoot the gun, see where the pellet goes, AND get a reading"
    "Look! I can shoot standing with it!"
    "Look! It will chrony things that are NOT pellets!"
    "Look" It chronys even with a mod on- its not affected by noise!"

    It felt dragged out for all the wrong reasons.

    Course, if and when they apear, I will cetainly be getting one... or at the ver least I'll borrow @Spray1Mark s when hes up :)

    Yep, agree.

    Thats not the point though, right? :D

    Annoying? Thats what makes it different and worthwhile. I don't believe for a minute the phone would be anywhere else...who goes out without their phone nowadays? :D I think having an earpiece in and having it read back so you don't annoy everyone else will also be an essential piece of kit :D

    good man, you know it makes sense :D

    Here’s a snap of a page from the current app.

    They have developed it further from the page shown in the review that Giles did.

    Nice to see ‘Airgun UK’ with its own profile.

    I would have liked to see a readout on the chrony- I may well be the only person that doesnt actually mind if my phone is left at home, but it would just be nice to have it. A with fps if nothing else- its going to be worth its weight when you realise that you have 2% battery life and you are waiting for your RFD to call to let you know your new gun is in..... I mean the missus to call!

    It was quite enjoyable watching Giles squirm to get a 10 minute video done- the reality is that 1 min 30 seconds would have been more than enough.
    "Its a chrony. It does what it should. It uses radar not light. Its awesome!" .. and we're done :)

    And yes, GOT to have one lol!

    Totally agree Alex, although I always have so many of those external batteries that I'm never without ppower :D Especially if the RFD is about to call :thumb:

    Agree re the video length, short, sharp and to the point would have done nicely.

    He needed the additional time to show the other ‘featured items’ - different FX rigs, DonnyFL moderator etc...

    It all takes time ;)

    Apparently these are not coming to the UK. FX will be selling them directly from their website and not to the UK distributor.
    We were told this and a couple other shops also confirmed they were told the same thing.
