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.

    9.2x to be precise.;)
    That makes a 15mm kill 1 dot at 15yds, 25mm kill is 1 dot at 25yds & 40mm kill is one dot at 40yds.

    if normal HFT I am not sure if there is a limit, but 10 for me as I am shooting with a fixed 10 mag scope, in the past I used to shoot on 8. Tried to shoot a round of the southern hunters on 15 and came unstuck as I couldnt see any kill <15yds

    x10 for me. I don't use the ret for rangefinding. But I do use the Hawke half mildot ret in a slightly different way than usual. ;)

    4x32 or 4x40 and guess range by eye though HFT/SARC is just for fun for me, not that a 4x32 scope with a gun doing 850fps with falcons cant get the job done.

    Seriously? 4x32 for HFT? I'd love to see that.

    ps, HFT and airgunning is just fun for most people I'd say.

    I shoot Field Target so shooting a HFT/SARC course is just for fun when i have some spare time, i dont even shoot prone and dont agree with being able to rest the butt of your gun on the ground and also hold onto the peg.
    SARC sounds interesting this year so hope to give that a try when its on at the local grounds.

    I had for abit a Bushnell Elite 3200 10x40, nikko sniper 10x42 and MTC Viper 10x44 just as happy with a 4x32 better DOF less PX error and not so hard to use when to get used to using next to no holdover compared to a fixe 10x, find the low mag handy for unsupported standing/kneelers as a target sport i dont agree with holding onto things, though it seems im not like the norm.

    Why? The two sports are very different. What if I was to say I don't agree with FT shooters using beanbags to sit on or I don't agree with rangefinding using those FT high mag scopes with feathers hanging off the barrel? Two different sports that use two different sets of rules. One is for target types that look down the noses at the others. ;):D And one is for normal people. :tea:

    ps, you wouldn't do very well at HFT with a 4x32 scope and that's a fact.

    I always used to shoot HFT and SARC on x10 with a PCP but I've just started shooting with a x7 on my 98 and it seems to work really well.

    If you can range find well by eye it doesnt matter aslong as you know your hold overs with a fine enough ret for the reducers.
    Thanks for editing my quote so it looks like im comparing the two disaplines, i just dont enjoy supported shooting so when i shoot HFT/SARC course i do it unsupported when i go around with the lads we do every lane standing.
    I shoot FT but also have fun doing HFT/SARC coarses and will do SARC shoots this year as they have adjusted the rules, i dont look down at others the fact i use a HW95 springer with an old Tasco 4x40 and for FT i use a £300 AR20 rifle im also not an equipment elitest, looking at some of the gear HFT guys are using in the winter league costs more then ive see some guys in the FT winter league use.

    But thats enough about how great i am, thread derailed just because i like to use a small scope.
