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.

    My son took part in the autumn meet HFT course, along the way we realised that his Brocock was running out of steam towards the end of the course. For the charity shoot in Essex, I was planning on taking a pump along with us so that he could top it up along the way. Is this allowed, this will only be the second time we have shot a course, so do not want to break the rules?

    Don't think you can refill during the course but I would have thought you should get more than 30 shots unless you were doing a bit of practice before hand. If your shot count is tight I'd suggest getting any practice in then refilling before the start. However if the club is effectively running the course for fun then they may allow you to refill mid course if you can't get more than 30 good shots per fill.

    I can't see anything in the 2013 rules about it.
    https://sites.google.com/site/ukahft/2013-rules
    But if it isn't specifically forbidden you may need to take an official to prove you are not making any scope or targeting adjustments? Unless refilling the rifle is considered an adjustment in itself, perhaps.

    "Once the first shot has been taken, NO adjustments may be made, in any way, to the rifle, stock or scope."

    We have a growing number of Brococks on our Club Ranges - Lea Valley Air Gun Club - Hertford

    We allow Shooters to take pumps or Small Air bottles on to ranges practise or Competition -

    New 30m Tubed Air cyclinders should have cured this -

    Also get Shooters Sharing Rifles & Pistols in Competitions -

    Safety is priority so always ask -

    Has as been said, no is the answer. If people were allowed to leave the course, they could refill, adjust power, adjust scope, swap rifles etc etc. During UK national HFT rounds your gun will also be tested for power output too. So no is the answer.

    I still can't see anywhere in the official rules that you are not allowed to leave a course. Happy to be corrected. I may have missed it somewhere.

    Leaving the course itself isn't the issue. When you start the course your card has determined your set-up; mag/parallax etc. If you are spot checked and it differs from what you have nominated then you are liable to disqualification. You could do those sort of adjustment secretly whilst it's in the gun-bag.

    Agreed. Without going too far off topic from the original question, while friendly clubs probably won't have an issue with a mid comp top-up, I think as far as official rules go it requires a clarification on whether such a top-up is considered an adjustment to the rifle. It would alter the power curve in an unregulated gun...

    I suppose it's one of those things nobody would even worry about until that fateful day whereby someone wins following a mid-course top-up. Duck and cover...

    sorry to reincarnate but can someone clarify marshall wise or experienced? as if i was to purchase a s400 classic the best shot count would be about 40 usable shots? are there any circumstances of more than 30 targets or is this a standard?

    There is an end of season comp called "The Gathering" where the top shooters around the country qualify to compete. At this competition you will shoot 40 targets so take into account a couple of forced discharges (stoppages) then 40 might not be enough.
