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.

    This is actually an old, cut-down projector screen. That's the back of it you can see. It's silver on the other side.

    You need to ask @SlyM1ke

    It's one of his brilliant inventions. But it doesn't half make a 'ding' when you hit it...

    Can I ask what your backstop is made of and what thickness if it's steel sheet please? I'm looking to build an indoor range for co2 pistols...

    The final backstop is obviously the back of the booth, which is 9mm OSB board. But, the pellets never make it that far, because...

    In front of that is a 6mm thick solid neoprene rubber sheet, bought from this place...

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BLACK-SO...hash=item3fbfa50607:m:m459MXljWOTsNZPt_ULUgvA

    Make sure you use solid neoprene rubber, not the lightweight foam rubber - that stuff's rubbish for this purpose. As far as sub 12ft/lb air guns are concerned, this rubber is just about as good as ballistic gel and has a self-healing effect - you'll see the pellets being squeezed back out after impact.

    Hanging in front of the rubber is a thick Jute doormat. This was actually a 3m floor runner, purchased from The Range (other outlets are available) and cut in half. There is a 1 - 1.5" gap between the mat and the rubber. This serves two purposes, firstly, the Jute mat absorbs the initial impact and slows the pellets down - albeit, only very slightly. Secondly, the air gap acts as a slight noise reducer and deadens the 'thwack' as the pellet hits the rubber.

    Hope that helps. :thumb:
