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.

  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.

    Yeah I’ve had a few hrs with mine lately in the garden. Can get around 35yds. Sold my mybo origin target bow. I only shoot 3D and it was just too heavy to carry around. I have a bow tech carbon icon with trophy ridge h5 react sight. Hoyt stubby stabiliser. Nice set up. Plus a samick discovery 60 inch 40lb recurve bow set up. Though that’s going to all get moved on. I only really shoot the compound. Missing the 3D clubs!

    Pure fluke mate, it’s like shooting, if you fling enough lead, then sooner or later you have to hit something!

    It’s nice, mainly it’s very light to carry round the 3D course. The whole set up of the icon is miles lighter than the bare mybo. Though it does balance differently too with it being shorter. So accurate though, they’re amazing bits of kit.

    Nah, shooting I call it mate. It’s actually surprising how accurate these bows can be. That one on the elk was 60yds. When I do my bit I can get 3 arrows in a 4 inch group at 60yds. Literally take an eyeball out at 20 or 30. It’s great fun. Oh and I was serious, pure flukes!

    Can second that Drake so accurate
    The Bear Agenda has the Truglo Range Rover adjustable sight once all the hard works done setting up correctly its unbelievably accurate
    I’ve stopped shooting more than two arrows at one specific point on the target bag at home as just keep smashing off knocks
    Keep toiling with a new bow but can’t really see the benefit as the Agenda is so accurate once setup correctly

    Yeah I have a mybo bag, I can stick the 3 face targets on them, def darent shoot more than one arrow at the same point. Not at 20yds. Even 30 can be pushing your luck.

    Those trophy ridge react sights I have are great. You set the 20yd one by sliding the whole unit up and down. Then once that’s set you move back 30. Use the Allen screw to set the 30, this also moves the 40, 50 and 60. It’s then set. On mine it works perfectly. My mate has the h4 so only 20, 30, 40 and 50yd pins. His is set more like 20, 30, 43 and 55. His bow isn’t as quick as mine so it’s slightly below the advised speeds on this sight. But obviously still works. As long as you know you’re aim points all is good.

    I really fancy another bow. A more traditional one, it’s why I was going to sell the samick kit. I fancy the kaiser chillon riser in the red and black. Take a look at those beauties!

    Mikey you’d love it. 3D is awesome, it’s like hft but with bows. I’m lucky that I’ve got 4 or 5 courses all within around 40 mins of me. I’m a member at two now. So cheap too! One is £35 yearly membership, £2 per day shooting. The other is zero yearly membership and £5 per day shooting. What can you do for that? More pics below! 32FEC8D8-CFA9-43DA-8075-401AF8F02178.jpeg 69504B19-804E-4236-9F5A-A836EB1C839D.jpeg B3EEF25D-B0FE-460B-A61D-98EA4DFD507A.jpeg 39F5574C-4256-4317-869E-075514C2484D.jpeg A9337DDC-1EB3-4896-A01E-1DA00F5AF730.jpeg 087E016E-E2B0-49CE-93A1-60CC76B826D2.jpeg 8A6B315B-D167-4148-9944-D02D84E6E8F2.jpeg 6C6B8035-FDCA-4A45-8A7E-A56D61AF1CC8.jpeg ABBD8452-3C15-4DF4-BCCE-BF5ECE9B514A.jpeg 95894AC2-FFB7-48F7-9EBC-2C870A84A247.jpeg AD1E26A9-A6DB-4BC7-967C-FD60FA1094D0.jpeg DF394262-379F-4387-916B-07AF97F892AE.jpeg C9B4598F-5206-4B97-AAAF-5C5DE6969534.jpeg AF5DA71D-D9DA-4A2D-882B-9066D0288DCD.jpeg

    Ah yes, I've seen those sights, look really good. Like the idea of those. My mate shoots a hoyt bow, oldish one but he loves it. He is fancying one of the new carbon ones but is put off by the price at the mo. We're lucky that we have merlin archery shop on the doorstep. We're always in there. Also nip over to Washington to see the guys at Eagle Archery, they're more traditional and recurve only. They also run butsfield bowmen, one of the clubs I'm in. Great set of lads.

    It's great mate, can get round the course in around 90 mins but we just chill out and take 2-3hrs. Too nice to be rushing round.
