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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    With a fair bit of daylight left after dinner I thought I'd mount the scope on the rifle ( my 2 latest acquisitions :) ) and give them a test run.

    Scope was quickly zeroed in 5 or 6 shots and the remaining 4 or 5 went in the same ragged hole - sweet !

    So I took the rifle off the rest,reloaded the mag and repositioned the rifle and myself for the next 10 shots. The POI had shifted down and right by about 10mm. With each of the following 3 mags the POI shifted in a random direction by 10-15mm.

    After a bit of head scratching and a cold beer I put the rifle on the maintenance stand and you'd probably guessed by now what I found. I had only done up the bolts to the point where I could fine tune the horizontal axis of the scope as well as forward and back for eye relief so they were ALL loose and in my haste to shoot some groups I'd forgotten to fully tighten them once final adjustments were made ! :facepalm: :p

    Pillock ... but we've all done it. Knocked the retaining pin out of the end cap on a rifle I'm restoring to remove the spring, but forgot to wind up the sash clamp to release the tension slowly ... cap disappeared at the speed of sound and it took me 20 minutes to find the b****r in the farthest and darkest recess of the shed :facepalm:

    You ain't alone mate. We all do Micky Mouse things.I once put a scope on 90 degrees left and even posted a pic on here where another noticed. We are human and we err from time to time.

    I had been wondering what an Emerald would look like on an XL9... Now I know! The answer is, beautiful!
    What height mounts are those? I need to get some in ready for my XL9 (if it's ever finished!)

    I fitted a new cam belt to my FIAT diesel one day, it only took 2 hours, rotated the engine, tension perfect over the entire belt, great! Now to put the tools away. There's the old belt on the drive, "bloody hell, that's good paint they use, I can still read the part number after 4 years".
    Yep, I'd taken the original belt off and put it straight back on again!!!

    :facepalm:
