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.'

  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.

    Thought I'd have a shot or two in this hideous wind we been having. Wanted to see how much the pellets moved at 36 meters in my garden at my little shooting lane.
    Got a pleasant surprise, not as bad as I thought.
    Started bottom right putting the full 28 shots from the impact compact into the target, didn't try too much as I wanted to see what was happening wind wise. Next target bottom left 28 shots taking my time with bipod tasted on a garden seat cushion. Next target was middle right and ten shots then middle left five shots top left another five shots before shooting the last eight out the mag on too right target. Non of my shooting Bea's trying to beat the wind waiting for a lull in the gusts I just kept shooting to see what I ended up with. Only pulled one shot on bottom left target, went high and left catching edge of target. You can see the wind in the picture with heavy bird feeder blown to the side.

    Very good, much improved internal noise wise over the standard MK2 I had before it.
    I need to do more pellet testing at longer range see which is best. These that I used seem to buck the wind very well. I'd get three shots all touching and thank amazing then wind would blow one off :mad: next might off or back on near the others.
    If it was in fully open field with a constant speed wind I would expect more wind drift over distance.
    Thanks for the kind words Evenbad, some days I'm rubbish, depends how my body is, coffee or not :thumb:.
    If your net getting decent groups your pellets might not suit your barrel. I have tried pellets that give shotgun patterns no matter how well.i shot.

    Hi Figgy,
    I also have a Impact Compact and I love it, I have found that QYS my compact loves them and I’m getting some really nice groupings even with the wind at 45m down the range I’ve not tried groups further but I have hit a few targets at 50m and 60m with the QYS might be worth testing some out, I’m happy to send you a few in the post to try if needed

    @Pilly1188 , very kind offer and thanks but my gun is .22. My first impact was silly accurate, this one needs more testing but looking good so far.
    Glad you like yours, I wasn't sure when I first got it, but it's grown on me.

    What accessories are you looking for, there are loads that fit them. Some made by members on here. @Jefsky cocking handles are superb bits of kit to add.
    Extended bipod pic rails are a good addition too.

    Glad you asked, @bucketboy made his own for around £10.00 myself and others copied his design.
    Long quick detach picatiny rail along with a picatiny rail adapter coupling cut and drilled and tapped. Takes half hour to make, looks the business and works better than I could have imagined.
    Do a search if it don't come up, I'd be surprised.itll be back end of 2019.
    Here's a pic of mine

    @Spray1Mark ,
    Would that be a impact compact you've bought Mark? :thumb: is it bronze too. Outside in sun so can't quite see the colours right.
