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.

    Looking for a fall flat, string reset target for my 55 yard practice. The conventional shoot to reset targets whilst a lot cheaper don't reset at 55 yards.
    Seen the Air Arms ones on ebay at £32, are there others, maybe cheaper?
    Regards
    Tony

    Thanks, looking out for it.

    Found some gamo ones for £23 but they have a whopping non adjustable kill zone.

    AA ones seem better.

    Also found a rabbit on target sports for £20.55, this has adjustable sensitivity but does not detail the kill size and the site is not letting me into the shopping basket to to if its vat inclusive or the carriage charges.

    We use nock over target ones out to 70 yds, we have tried cheaper ones and they poor in comparison.

    Heavier metal used, not falling when hitting the face plate, not having to spend time getting them to work as expected.

    But to be fair, the top course targets 13 thru 18 are far easier now you don't have to hit the kill zone!:p

    I fell some small kill zones coming !!

    These lasted just over 6 months for use, better than the gamo ones.

    Well thanks guys I now have a choice of the cheaper one from dowlingstargets or the one from knockovertargets.

    The links are appreciated.

    Lifes to short to be fiddling around with kit so although not the cheapest I am leaning towards the nockovertargets offering.

    This is going to be my 55 yarder main home practice so it'll get some hammering.

    Have you thought about a couple of spinners at that range as well? No resetting as such, and a touch of variety keeps things interesting...

    Gamo targets are the best so I've been told. ESP the one with the restrictors.

    In my experience with FT (i shoot SFT) and HFT over the years, nockover targets have always been said to be the best targets available (I would have to agree), although not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

    Price appears to be a reason people choose other makes of targets, availability is another ie: most shops stock gamo ect so people can just walk in and pick one up. In HFT the desire for weird and wonderful targets means non standard targets are nocked up, although ideally nockover units are used as a base for the conversion.

    There selection of targets (kill zone size/placement and plate design) could do with improving IMHO.

    Yes a good suggestion and I have some spinners but as the purpose is essentially FT practice I wanted to keep things authentic.
