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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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'm looking forward to having a go on my 97k. I've been researching and watching stuff etc. I've never had, or used a decent air rifle before. I've heard great things about the 97. But I've just stumbled across this video. This fella is hilarious( in the true sense:)),...... but can someone tell me if this is for real, or is he just having a laugh with a bit of editing etc....??

    He's a funny fella for sure, but is the 97 that accurate at the 50 yards he says he's shooting? :thumb:

    Cheers for that. And yes......I did notice he had a bit of a wobble on. That's partly why I wasn't sure if it was real, or he is just having a giggle. :thumb:

    sync must be out because at 50 yards there'd be quite a delay from the shot to when the tom exploded.:facepalm:

    I don't know what you mean by sync? , but am I guessing right that you reckon it's fake?

    No Walt not necessarily fake. i mean the two videos had to be synced into the one video and maybe the bloke didnt get the clapper board right.
    Tincan tone is the man for videos, im sure he could explain better.

    Yes mate. That's a long Hall way he's got there. If I could shoot from my front door to the top of my garden, it would be about half that distance! And knowing my luck , one of the cats or the dogs would come charging in just as I took the shot. So I think I'll stick with shooting from the patio table and the bathroom window. :thumb:

    I'm sure I've seen posts from tct saying @TinCan Tony spends hours editing his videos just to get a couple of minutes worth of footage just to link it all up. I like tct's videos....... I would hate the noisy git as a neighbour but his videos are good and he's a nice guy

    I totally agree that the shot is easily achievable bench rested but shooting off the knee is a lot harder and the barrel wasn't exactly still when the shot was taken. I don't doubt the shot was genuine but whether it was the first attempt or not has me wondering.

    OK, since I've been drawn in; I don't think the shot is 'fake' but, I don't think he hit the tomato with that particular shot - possible 2, 3, or 4 shots later after he'd relaxed more and got his breathing right. He's got a bit too much barrel wobble going on there to have hit it first time from that sitting position - IMO. ;)

    I would say slightly poor editing. The two video's haven't been synced correctly. There's no way the pellet would have hit the tomato that soon after pulling the trigger. That is something I concentrate on quite a lot in my video's to ensure the correct time delay from the rifle going off and the pellet hitting the target, based on the distance. That's why it's so time-consuming. :thumb:

    Nothing too clever hitting a tomato at 50 yards, but from that position.....

    Golden rule with all these videos is if you can't see the shooter and the target in the same shot, it's a fake, and even if you can, it might be

    My post crossed with Mr Tincan. I agree with him entirely.

    That tomato is roughly 3moa at 50 yards or 12 clicks across on a decent scope. Well within the capability of a 97 and a lot of other air rifles if your pellets are decent. The shooter on the other hand?
    I think you'll like your new 97!
