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.

    Thank you.

    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.'

  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.

    Exactly my situation. I find my left finger has better feel, on the trigger, than the right and my right arm supports the gun better, so left handed shooting has worked out for this righty. The only drawback is the availability of stocks in lefty. We have a group of about 8 that shoot FT in my back yard and one of them is also lefty. He shoots a right handed TX200 just fine and I can as well. I prefer a lefty stock, so that's what I have on 4 of my 8 TX's.

    Here's an inexpensive solution to the lack of left handed stocks. Saw the top of the comb off a right hander and fit it on again but back to front. It puts the roll-over on the correct side and stops the sharp edge on AA stocks cutting into your cheek. OK it doesn't address palm swell.

    In your case you might be considered ambidextrous.

    My friend Dave took the sharp edge off a RH 400 stock for me.
    Fine to shoot now.
    I think AA are Handist!

    Eye dominance is only relevant if you shoot with both eyes open. If you shoot with one eye closed or blanked off then you can use either eye, it's then just a matter of which shoulder and eye is the most comfortable or natural to use and shoot from.
    Shooters ,mainly those who use a shotgun and whose master eye is on the opposite side to the shoulder they shoot from and wanted to shoot with both eyes open would sometimes use what is termed as a'crossover stock.

    I'm naturally right handed and shoot with both eyes open.
    Occasionally I will shoot my pistols left handed just for fun and to compare to my right handed efforts.

    All I can say is I am equally bad at both! :D

    I am right handed in everthing I do, tennis , golf, writing etc. Many years ago, when I was in the Air Training Corps, we went shooting and the instructor stopped me from looking over the top of the stock so that I could use my dominant left eye.He
    made me shoot left handed. My right eye is what they call lazy and glasses do not help. From that time I have always shot left handed and it feels natural. In some respects being right handed , with that being the stronger arm it helps to hold the rifle with the right arm taking any weight, my left hand only feathers the trigger. That's how it works for me.

    I’m right handed, but shoot left handed unsure why, apart from the fact it feels right shooting left handed!!
    There is a group of us that used to shoot together, 4 in total and three shot left handed!!

    If being left handed was a religion, a disability or a sexual orientation we could have a field day in the courts.
    From guns and scissors to computer mice, even the crappy little plastic pen you use to sign for a parcel is fixed to the right hand side of the pad so you have to nearly rip it free to use it.
