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.

    Hi! There. Just wondered if any of you out there could put me wise as to where I am going wrong with my cross wire adjustment?

    The scope, Varmint II 3-12X44AO, was fine when I first got it, just had to adjust it a couple of clicks at 25 yds or so, and it was spot on. However, going to the target range last week, it was fine up to 40 yds or so, but decide for a longer distance about 55yds,and altered the settings.
    Not being clued up, I messed it up, and now try as I may, can't seem to get it right again for bulls at 25 yds back home. Couple of clicks this way and that, and the shots just seem to go up, down left and right in about a 6 inch circle, with no consistency whatsoever.:(:

    I have tried to read up various articles, to save bothering you guys too no avail. I'm wondering if the internals are somehow not right? It hasn't been dropped or knocked to the best of my knowledge, so I was thinking perhaps one of those laser boresighters JSR does would help?

    Anyway, that's it, wish I had of let well alone in retrospect!:(:

    What gun is it? Sounds like something awry with the gun. Do you have a silencer on? Is it tight? Are the pellets clipping the exit hole?

    Thanks for the idea Darren, will try it without the silencer, and see what results I get. Cheers.:): PS It's on a FX Verminator.

    Darren, many thanks for your suggestion, sorted!:): When I first got the Verminator with it's silencer, I had noticed bright marks around the exit hole, but thought this may of been caused by the tool that secures the end cap leaving a few marks.

    However, I did notice a few small shards of lead from my firing point, but just puzzled over them.:(: Anyway,the rest is history, a little fettling on the end cap with a fine rat-tailed file, back on the bull!:): It pays to use a forum like this, for the advice and experience of others, plus of course it has plenty of other comprehensive sections for airgunners. Cheers Darren.:):

    adjusting the zoom can also change your aim points

    Guys, have got to try your latest suggestions, because it is better with the mods to the silencer,but not as good as it was originally. So, I will experiment with the AO adjustment and zoom, a bit tomorrow, and note the results.Cheers.:):
