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.

  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.

    I recently acquired an unused boxed Gamo moving target system. I've assembled it apart from protective plates but have been reluctant to shoot it as it is in new condition. It has three speeds and an additional 'random' setting. You could remove some sections making it shorter. I think it's quite impressive. What do you think ?

    Andy,
    You've started my cogs whirring now. I might be tempted to put it up for sale or possibly swap for a pistol. I am after a pp700sa or a fwb65. I quite like shooting pistols with open sights at the moment and predominantly use a range of ssp's and my CO2 Zastava. I will certainly let you know if I decide to sell.

    I'm alright for a backstop but you could just use an old scaffold board or similar. In answer to Anschultz as you can see, hopefully from tha attached diagram the hinged targets are mounted on a motor driven trolley that runs in the steel channel. At each end of the channel are inclined wire arrangements clipped into the channel that flip the targets upright after having been shot. What appears as inverted 'L' shapes at each end of the trolley is a 'shuttle that is free to move through the body of the trolley. Each of the stag targets is linked by rotating cams to the shuttle which flips them upright when it hits the buffers at each end of the channel. Simultaneously micro switches are activated which change the direction of travel. I hope this makes some sort of sense even though the photo seems to rotated through 90 degrees.

    This is the rifle that was designed to work with the moving target system. It gives up to the Spanish limit of 18ft/lbs in .22". The design of the valving gives 10 rapid shots with no loss of velocity unlike most co2 rifles/pistols. The pellets are loaded directly into the breech by the bolt so it is very accurate but unfortunately, power aside, it is classed as a section 5 in the UK because of this.

    I have a S410 carbine with 12 shot magazines and I struggle to keep up with my homemade chain driven targets even at lower speeds. Still yet to try this out. It's almost too good to shoot. I have loads of targets and bought a resetting squirrel a few years ago and it's still in the box. My favourite is one of the simplest and cheapest. It consists of a frame made from dia 5mm rod/bar from which hangs four dangly bits. You shoot these up and then reset by hitting a circular target above. I enjoy it and it gives you a good feel for the comparative power of rifles.
