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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    '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.

    I believe the SKAN is reckoned to be one of the most accurate according to people In the know.

    Skan Pros are used by Most trade Manufactures & Retailers and used by Police - and most clubs as self Checking

    Local bobby told me they use the Skan down our way as he politely told me that my Innova was being confiscated and that was the end of it, lucky me is all i can say to that one.

    The best chronoscope (IMO) is the SKAN very accurate and self calibrating ;)

    by design, and due to its purpose, a shooting chronograph has to be accurate and consistant to within 1%, or greater, with its readings. so all those manufactured should reach this standard. we have a shooting chrony beta, and its proven to be all it should.
    the industry standard, and the one that the majority of the forces and manufacturers use, is the skan. it is self calibrating and checking, and is twice as accurate as legal requirements need it to be, at 0.5%

    Too much variation with the skan chrono so the bfta have dropped them.
    trying prochrono this year, our club has one and its bteer than f1 or skan.


    however CED chrono is probably the best

    The CED M2 is what we use for pellet testing. The best part about it, still being a sky screen type, is the size of the screens, but also the way it goes together, every part is available individually, so if you shoot it when it is downrange, you only have to replace the one bit you hit, not the whole thing. Even the sensors are available individually and it is very accurate because it uses sensors 2 feet apart.
    Skan are used within the trade for two reasons:
    1. They take up little room in the workshop (an important consideration)
    2. They are calibrated and then can be recalibrated in-house.
