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.

  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.

    kids were out, wife had gone to lunch with her friend do i decided to pop down the range and test my new to me Prosport.
    i had bought it off of freeads and Chronoed it before taking it but yesterday was my first day of getting to know the rifle.
    i decided to remove the old scope that came with it and fit a MTC mamba lite. this was a little long for the rifle as it just starts to cover the breech opening. as i have fingers like bananas, i need all the room i can get to get the pellet in the hole so i will be looking for a shorter scope in the near future.
    Anyway, after 20 shots i was grouping 10p size hole at 30 yards. i bought the Prosport as a skills test. all my other rifles are PCPs and i wanted something less clinical, less sterile to hone MY skills, not the guns. that said i an sure the Prosport is as accurate as any PCP, but im the variable and PCPs are more forgiving.
    whilst there i met a lot of people and got chatting, im sure some are on this forum. there was a 50 yard matchstick which the Prosport managed to dispatch.
    all in all a happy boy. havent fettled with it yet and scope choice is niggling me but apart from that, :)

    And for the last two sessions I’ve shot Chris target, so we’re about even :D

    for names and faces....

    - Jake was far left as you come in with the crown doing 50 yard standers with ease ( very annoying)

    - next to him was @Jeffsky with his tricked impact. The super blue r10 never made it out whilst I was there.

    - @32:1 was next with his stumpy rapid

    - then me. ataman BP-17 with vt3 3-12x44 SF FFP. Nice scope on this rifle, just don't try and use ret below 8x :D

    - then @TR158 with his wildcat and HW100KT. Very accurate and consistent.

    - then I think it was you with the pro sport

    - can’t remember

    - @jps norton with his aeron stocked HW100KT, springer and one of Chris’s Mk1 rapids - whole mag through a 8mm hole at 50 yards - insane !

    i think that was the main lot in the morning.

    good to put names to faces, great day had. just need to sort the Prosport some decent glass. was looking at the Discovery vt-3 and the compact air max, i was hoping for some honest reviews of people who have had/tried both. this forum has to be the place for it!

    The discovery scopes are very good value for money and I would put my vt3 with something like the AirMax glass. The ret is nice and I am happy with it at the moment as it looks and performs well on the BP. I still want a vortex on there, or a small nightforce if I win the lottery :D

    I did have a previous discovery FFP and it was similar glass, I just didn't like the ret.

    If you are there next time you're more than welcome to have a play with the scope and rifle.

    I haven't used the glass in low light, but it is quite dark in the range which gives a good indication.

    I must get down there on a Saturday to catch up with you all and try and get @mikeyhall1 to join us as well.

    I’m long overdue a visit to Pete’s, I need to catch up with him as well and make sure all his rental guns are ok as I maintain them for him.

    thanks Tim, i will take you up on your offer. looking through scopes in the shop is nothing like using it on the range or field.
