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 think on divers bottles they have to pass a certain standard because the original intention for it was to go underwater and let us breathe.

    i think you have to get bottles checked out every 5 years or so so the guage probably gets checked too

    As I understand it, gauges are reasonably accurate - the ones on the rifles themselves are usually the worst, however I have no first hand experience of this so don't quote me.

    not entierly true what they are is slow. if you shoot like 40 shots as fast as you can you can beat the guage pin but if you are hunting thats not something you're going to do.

    when filling an gun use the guage on the bottle or pump as the gun's guage is usually slow or is hard to get an exact reading

    Well a slow gauge is fine when you're hunting, but what if you're having a plink in the garden? It's of virtually no use.

    They're also quite vague from what I've seen.

    well when you are plinking you don't need to know that the pellet will come out at 11.5 ftlbs exactly but if you get about 80 shots in a fill then thats ample for a shooting secion and usually i use my little BSA metior for plinking

    The bottle line gauge I have seems to correspond fairly accurately with gauge on the Verminator. Probably both are more accurate than the average forecourt gauge, when you inflate tyres?:):

    Unless you have the Hw 100 i would go with the guage from the cylinder.
    As far as i was told the oil filled guages are the best buy.
