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.

    '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 would have thought you were exaggerating about how perplexed you were, had I not seen that you were a plasterer!

    Only slightly further up the food chain that roofers and scaffolders!!

    :D

    I tested my Webley Tempest pistol with my Chrony F1 today. Came out at 3.5 ft/lb. Not bad for it's age. Was easy to use, just turn on and shoot over the 2 sensors.

    If you're ever round Gloucester way, drop in and we'll see if we can't work it out between us!

    Don't bake your noodle trying to work stuff out.

    Just shoot across the sensors, get a FPS reading then go to this website http://www.pyramydair.com/article/What_is_Muzzle_Energy_August_2003/5

    Put your pellet weight in the box that says pellet weight :rolleyes: then enter the FPS reading in the box labelled 'velocity' then click on the "Energy =" button.

    That will display your foot pounds without any unnecessary jiggery pokery or drama.

    Enjoy :)

    The CED is actually dead easy.
    Put the sky screens together on the sensors and the fold out main bar. IMPORTANT - it doesn't matter which sensor you use, but it is important that the front one is wired to the jack socket marked START and the back one to STOP. ALWAYS use the sky screens - it says you don't need to....use them, you will get fewer missed readings.

    Put the 9v battery in the battery slot.

    Press the ON button and give it a minute to sort itself out - it has to yawn and stretch and take a Censored, just like you do when you first wake up!

    You can set it to display whatever you want - I would set it to display velocity myself in feet persecond, because that is ultimately what we are interested in. It is a far more meaningful figure than ft-lbs or Joules. If you are a modernist, and can work in the funny foreign units, then do the metres per second thing.

    The other buttons are nothing more than shortcuts to certain calculations. If you are a techy, then you can plug it into your confuser and use the CD they give you to load up some newfangled tabulation magic trickery - i use a pencil and piece of paper and jot the velocity figures down myself. It keeps me more involved.:D

    I often find the sun screens/shades aren't necessary most of the time. Not unless it's an extremely bright day.

    That's right, pick on the roofer. If it wasn't for that roof there would be no reason to plaster.
