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.

    Hello

    i took hold of my .25 BSA Tactical XL yesterday and after half an hour had it centred on paper at 15 yards

    I took it out to Mattersey Rifle club today and sat on a bench with a blank card with four 1 inch red stickers on it at 25 yards

    I could not get a group good enough to decide which way to move my tele sights, after 20 pellets it looked like the Milky Bar kid had been shooting

    A raucous little springer like this really didn't like being held to tightly, rested across my bag it was better, but held even looser the group started to show its self and after fifty 25 pellets it was holding inside the one inch stickers

    This is a new rifle and the .25 can never be called a target calibre, so I left it at that. Next time it will get shot through a chronograph to enable me to plot a trajectory curve chart, then test if it's correct

    Shooting full bore and rimfire rifles and getting the expected recoil, coming home to Pcp which do feel dead in your hands, and now having my butt kicked round by a little springer because I didn't give it the respect it deserved

    I still love the buzz of a first time out with any gun and the little BSA didn't disappoint

    My biggest giggle today was when the club scrounger borrowed a couple of pellets and they didn't fit in his 22

    Hope you all have a Great Christmas and get some nice presents so you can tell me about them on here

    As you have discovered a springer is very hold sensitive. To get the best accuracy you must hold it like it is made of glass. Do not grip it tightly anywhere and do not pull it into your shoulder, just rest it. It is called ' THE ARTILLERY HOLD'. Google it and see what comes up.
    Happy shooting,
    Pete.

    Another thing worth noting is that BSA .25 barrels are actually .243, and they benefit greatly from having the pellets resized. There is a guy on Ebay somewhere who makes resizers to deal with this.
