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.

    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.

    and you mate thanks for your help.
    I went straight to knibbs after with the riffle and they conformed it was all over the place.

    they tried different pellets, still no good, he made a quick call to daystate and they suggested taking the shroud off and trying it.
    we did that and bingo it was on the money.

    they are saying I may have knocked it?? I suppose its possible?? although I haven't been out with it much and I had been struggling to get decent groupings since I bought it
    in-between
    Christmas and new year.

    it's under warranty and they are sending a new shroud, should be here Tuesday,

    hope I don't get stung with a charge? because having looked through SteveO's scope I need to get one with finer cross hairs.
    that one I have is a bit bold :D

    any recommendations for a scope ??
    thanks again might see you up there again soon and have another go at zeroing it in

    Paul

    It's such a lovely rifle you might want to trade that scope in for a better one. I have never seen such a thick reticle. Hawke sport range will do you ok but for me a Panorama has quite a fine reticle which will allow far more precise aiming than the one you have. I would see if Knibbs can do you a deal whilst you are over there. I don't think Daystate or Knibbs will levy a charge; clearly there is a fault and it's practically new.

    thanks I did look at a
    couple of scopes while I was there , will look more closely next week and take some A4 paper with me to zero in if I have one.
    not sure about a deal from knibbs though?? it took all my persuasion to get a tin of pellets out of um when I bought the riffle :eek:
    I wonder if they will take my scope as part X ? think it was just short of £50 off ebay

    A nice few hours with you guys again today, always worth the effort for good company!

    Glad you're getting your gun sorted Paul, Like Mick says its a cracker and should be every bit as accurate any other makes.

    I enjoyed Mick and JP's faces and chuckles when they were using my XS79, I don't think they expected it to be half as accurate! :p It's definitely good fun!

    That HW100 of Micks.... :claping:
