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.

    Hey guys just a quick Q, i was out on my perm this fair morn nice sunny day and I suddenly realised that i can see my pellets flying through the air with and without a scope, Does this mean that there is something wrong with my gun or so I have super vision (preferably the latter).
    I was using my AA S410K
    JSB Exact Jumbo Diablo 15.89 Grain
    Many thanks

    22 pellets are easier to see as they are both larger and slower and if you are looking in the right place you should be able to see them. At night using either a red torch or infra red and night vision they are clearly visible as long as recoil doesn't disturb your view through the scope. You can clearly see the trajectory if you watch closely.

    If you're in line with the pellet's flight path, the lateral movement is quite small, so you're more likely to see them (especially .22's as others have said).

    I'd be more impressed if you said you could see them when they're being fired across your line of sight!

    If you look at some of the videos on the web, of those guys that install a camera through the scope, you can see very well sometimes. The behaviour of the pellet can be quite surprising, changing direction rather erratically with the wind as it loses speed towards 50+ yards.

    You can see shotgun patterns when fired too, if the lighting is right and you know what to look for - that is how shooting instructors know where you have just missed, or which part of the pattern has hit the clay/bird.

    Good fun watching the tracer-like trail when lamping- Accupeell/Vrminpell light up well at night because of the flat surface INSIDE the skirt. It acts like a mirror to reflect the light from the lamp. It makes you realise just how slow your pellets are travelling.
