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.

    That's a great looking rifle! I like the camo on it.Was it hard to apply and can you get it off easily? I just started the whole air rifle shooting thingy and got myself a Hatsan 60s. I still have to get myself an El Cheapo scope and I believe that something like a Nikko Stirling 3-9x40 AO would do just fine for me.

    McCloggie the BSA Essencial is a good little scope, 3-9x40, Adjustable Optics so you can focus it at close and long range, mil dot, we are buying a pair, one for an HW95 and one for a BSA Goldstar (air rifle not motorbike).

    Have a link to the scope on Kranks!
    http://www.henrykrank.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_43_627&products_id=6027

    Rated for spring powered use, will go well with the 60! By the way, you may find that Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum are the best pellet for the 60, I know I did with the 4 we have bought (the wife and I had one each then I got a bad elbow and we gave up spring powered shooting, stopped beach fishing and it got better, so bought another 60S - well I like them, then a wall blew over in a storm and a neighbour helped my mother move her wall out of the road. He then got ripped off by a so called friend who sold him a rifle that was to be honest downright ruddy dangerous, so we bought him a 60S so that he had a good rifle).

    Oh and to the OP, Crosman Premier Ultras are Accupells, only they are about £3 cheaper a tin where I am!

    Just thought, he better leave off the hunting for a while...

    After looking at that first photo his grouping was awful:D

    Only teasing, now get some rabbit head targets, aim halfway between the eye and ear, see how you get on with those....

    just as a self test,

    get off the range or set up a lane with 5 random targets at five random heights, some 3-D object as the target like yogart bottle 2 inch long inch an half wide ish plased on top of a post. loose as aposed to fastened.

    now walk back to your shooting point, turn around/pick one and shoot it in one move. one shot at one target random like,

    then walk away/leave the posision and space you were in..go back and do it again, 3-4 times. place the items in the same posision so you can see what your groups are like at the end.

    even hide shooting is a random series of random shots, just that your sat there, stalking its continualy changing...as well as the heartbeat/breathing thing, and in the case of big woods the 'big eye effect'' no doubts theres a proper name for that lol...oxygen makes things so much clearer/nearer than they actualy are, takes a few seconds (depending on your fitness leval) for things to focus into the right place. i've seen peeps who can one hole on a range....cant hit a bunny head though lol. distance and timeing does NOT come in a box at a set range same seat same o same o shot lol.


    the whole thing is a 'in the head game' what makes one person confident dunt allways help the other, but if you can walk about your target strip popping stuff off where ever it is..then you know you can hit a head within that distance range.

    theres an angle of inclanasion to take into account too, aiming up(or down) it 'elevates the tragectory arc up untill a point where a true verticle shot is actualy off the bottom of a scope ret out of veiw (zero gravity affecting the constant drop x distance)

    two ways to do it..from the black board with maths (best way then add to it with the other) or go out and randomly find your pellet, thats what the 5 object here and there method helps to develope, the one shot one target then change posision and eyeline developes your aproach/stance which in turn gets you away from a statick exactly the same repetative shot.(and of course the very vital intro to distance and timing..animals move..when they move at first,then where they move too later is the last bit of the skill fine tune, called 'getting your eye in' where i come from lol.)

    its particularly vital with a springer btw..

    there you have it in a nut shell lol.



    chairguns a good starter to relate to a tragectory, the do it and see aproach is plenty, but its nice to know what a yard is and why things happen, saves falling prey to airgun mags and warm hearted shop assistants that take you for a ride .
