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.

    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.

    Just an idea so far but ever been curious if you could pull off the amazing split the bullet/pellet trick shot?
    I know I'd love to test my aim and skill on it :) i know you see plenty of vids on the tube of people doing this trick shot using paper to mark the split or balloons but id like make it a target box/frame rig and also to verify if you pull the shot of I come up with the idea of using 2x fire bells "those red ones you used to see in old school before the electric ones come out" rather that having to get up and change the paper or balloons..
    now I'm not sure if any one has done this yet or made any thing like it so I decided to share it with every one and see what feed back or ideas others have :)

    Just a little PS mock up so you get an idea of what I'm thinking of:

    [​IMG]

    I know the picture doesnt have a frame drawn in but thats just to show how id have the blade and bells, also I have chosen to use a pipe cutters blade just because there a thick blade, should give a split pellet a good trajectory either side to hit the bells.

    Just need to come up with some sort of frame either bolted bar to hold the bells and blade in place and have some kind of wooden face board with a hole positiond over the blade so no ricochet accidents happen when the pellets hit the bell domes.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks, Greg.

    I've wanted to do this for a while,old pen knife blade should suffice with two reactive targets either side ;)

    Yeah they would if you set them both at the same positions but setting one bell a inch or so further back will allow 2 bell tones closest running first then second last ;)

    Stick a match to your target.
    The trick is to skim it enough to get it to light but not enough that will cause it too just break.
    Then follow it up with a quick enough second shot that will put it out by doing the same.
    It needs two shooters to be fair,one to light it and the second to put it out otherwise the flame gets too big too quickly for just one shooter to put out with a second shot.

    Woah I forgot about that one, back when I was a kid I gave this one a try many of times but only striking the match "I always failed and broke broke the match" me and a few friends used to all take turns trying to pull the shot off but no one ever did haha, who knows I may try it may set something up after I get the pellet split set up :) or I could do both but drilling some holed in the top to sit the matches in ;)
