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.

  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.

Long / 50m indoor ranges around Oxfordshire / the Midlands

    I tried a bit more chrony testing at 50m outdoors yesterday; receiving quite variable and disappointing results. If I'm going to take this any further I want to eliminate as many variables as possible; which really means shooting in a wind-free environment.

    I'm happy to pay (within reason) to shoot on an indoor range; the problem being finding one that's within a reasonable distance. Ideally I'd also like to have the place to myself (don't mind going on a school day / off peak hours) to facilitate ease / speed of target changing etc.

    I'm aware of Pete's Airgun Farm - while almost exactly what I require it's over 100 miles from me, so a bit far. Tbh I'd be happy shooting in an old barn, chicken shed or whatever; providing it's wind-free ;)

    I'd be most grateful if anyone can suggest anywhere local where I might be able to shoot indoors at 50m :up:

    Thanks - 30m is better than nowt but I think I really need 50m to get any really meaningful results.

    Through the testing I'm looking to gain an improved understanding of the factors that affect the stability of pellets in flight and if there is any correlation between drag, velocity spread, stability and accuracy. Since airgun pellets seem to be blown 4ft off target when a mouse farts 3 fields away, testing in a windless environment would be preferable :)

    Is Dorset too far for you? Have a look at The Tunnel target Sports Club - 10m 25m, 40, and 100m UNDER COVER - in the old road tunnel of the A35 at Charmouth. It is where the SW Regional shooting squad train.

    Stay out in the rain then.:D Blimey, you want someone to invest to provide the facilities, then expect the use of them for nothing.....typical of modern life.

    Thanks guys - Dorset is a bit far though and to be fair as much as I'd appreciate the facility, I'm not paying £200 for a day's testing!
