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.

    I've downloaded this app and haven't even got a slight clue on how to use it. If there is anybody out there who is familiar with this app, then could you please give me a shout and help me sort this please. I don't understand any of it lol

    Hiya - it's simple enough when you get the hang of it. You have four screens available and you enter information relating to your rifle into the feilds on each page (four pages gives you the ability to use four pellet types, or four different rifles etc etc. The important thing is to enter the correct pellet (tap the "Pellets" box and choose your preferred type in the right calibre). Next is muzzle velocity - measure this (with the pellet you have input) using a chrono and then tap the Muzzle Vel. field and input the velocity in feet per second.

    Do the same for Scope Height (how high it is above the centre of the bore) and Far Zero (tap the fields and enter the information), and you're about there.

    You can use the four fields at the bottom of each page to navigate and choose options (for example match the reticle to the one your scope has). The graphs function will show you trajectories. Also if you turn the device sideways you will see tables of information that can be scrolled through to show POI changes etc.

    It sounds complicated, but once you get the hang of how it works it's a doddle.

    What jack said, however if you have a pc then download it to that as i find that version much more user friendly.

    I've input what pellets I have and the zero distance doesn't seem to change atall, whatever pellets I put in, whether it be 8 grain or 18grain. It's still showing my zero distance at 30 yds

    you set the zero distance yourself at whatever distance you zero at. It then calculated holdover and under at all other distances

    So it doesn't tell you what is the best distance to zero in the first place is ?

    no because your zero range depends on what you are shooting. I zero at 30yds for HFT but would zero at 10 yds if i was ratting.
    most zero between 30 and 35 yds

    There is no best range - that's for you to decide what's best for you. 30 yards is often a good place to start, but if you find you're most accurate at 25, 32, etc, zero for there and Chairgun will show you your trajectories.

    Step by step, Try every option on the screen, you will soon learn with a bit of time. There's allot there to take in.

    Go to reticles (bottom button) and the reticle will appear with the target represented by a red circle. In the top right of the screen there's a Mag field. Tap it and enter your value.

    Are you asking how to alter the magnification on Chairgun or as you have put it the magnification actually on the scope. If the latter then you just rotate it. If the former then just delete the number shown and type in the value you want.
    Forgive me for saying so but you seem to be rattling off loads of questions over the two threads you have started and perhaps you just need to stop and work through the advice given and the YouTube videos recommended. There is no quick fix to using Chairgun, it takes patience and working slowly through it. Time taken mastering it and discovering how to change settings etc pays dividends.
    One post has already recommended downloading Chairgun to a PC as the app is definitely not as user friendly, can you do that or are you trying to use it on an iPhone or iPad?

    You can change the data in any of the boxes at the top of the screen - the pc version is easier to use partly because the screen is bigger.
    If you're using the Android version then swiping the screen moves you between the 4 pages. Choose one and then go to pellets, select your calibre at the bottom and then the actual pellet.
    Go to the toolbox option at the bottom of the screeen and you can choose metric or imperial. In the reticles section you can pick your Hawke reticle or one similar to whatever you use.
    The graphs and tables options have other options for presenting the data in whatever way you want.
    I don't think that the mobile apps have as many functions as the pc version which is much more powerful and does include options to set the size of the kill zone and to get the programme to determine the best zero range to suit your particular rifle setup.

    Datum is the point from which you take the measurement. In chairgun it means if you know the size of the target you place the bottom of the target on the datum and then read the range off the top edge of the target
    hope this helps
