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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Managed to get a day largely to myself today to plink away at the 20yds I’ve got here in the garden.
    First it was the .20’s (Bsa r10, HM1000 and hw80)
    Then the .177’s (Bsa r10, daystate redwolf, AGT uragan)

    In fact the only guns I didn’t get out were the .22 tracker, the .177 Crosman 2250b and the pistols (colt SAA and hw45)

    all shooting spot on apart from the hw80 but I’m guessing that’s me not used to using springers anymore- but I’ve ordered a new breech seal anyway just in case that was the cause of the vertical stringing.

    All in all a good few hours away from the wife n kids, albeit only in the garden!

    The last pic, the .20 kaiser tightened all screws was a 20 shot group but not sure if me or seal. Definitely the best pellests in the 80!

    Enjoyed your pics, I have similar size garden, I am totally new to this and have only recently taken up shooting PCP with entry level Gamo Phox .22 Dont know if its beginners luck but I seriously cannot put a foot wrong. I am sure there are better guns and scopes than I have but I cannot fault the Phox and love the 10 shot magazine. I've only had it a few weeks, but am already bored with the targets because I hit the bull constantly and all shots covered by a 5p coin which seems to be the level of achievement on here. Only have a small 15 metre garden so that is my limit so far and am desperate to try out further distance. I have some images below that are more challenging than a target and put the Coke can ring pull challenge out there for anyone to try - two shots only - one through the top ring , one through the bottom phox3.jpg can1.jpg can2.jpg phox1.jpg phox3.jpg phox2.jpg

    Can anyone possibly help me out on advice for a bipod. I understand I have to remove the stock and drill out for a bipod stud. I have bought a pack on Amazon but dont know which of the three to use - any advice? Then can anyone recommend a suitable bipod. Dont want the most costly, just decent quality that will work with the correct bipod stud?

    Likely the one on the left mate, middle one probably too long and is a rear stud - one on the right likely no use at all

    Like Mikey says probably the left one.
    Garden plinking can get boring but when you’ve not managed to get to do any shooting for a while it’s nice to give the guns an airing.
    At these short ranges it’s easy to put pellet on pellet but once you move out to 40 yards the challenge is there. if your groups open up then I’d suggest trying one of the more mainstream pellets (jsb, H&N etc) they really can make all the difference at longer ranges.
    are there any clubs near you to try longer range shooting?
