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.

  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.

    I'm left-handed, left eye dominant but write with my right hand and shoot pistol right-handed! Primary school made me write with my right hand. Rifle and shotgun left-handed. I need a bit of cast on for shotgun. Basically I picked up every shotgun on the rack at my local RFD, closed my eyes, mounted the gun, opened my eyes and if I was sighted straight along the barrels it was a good un. I really wanted the Wm Evans in LOL but settled for an SKB s/s.

    My youngest son. "he's 50" has recently started shooting shotgun. he is left eye dominant but right handed. He started out shooting right handed but closing his left eye which worked OK. He then started shooting with both eyes open "which really is essential" and now shoots right handed with both eyes open. You really can train your body to do what you wish. Dont give up.

    PSG and practical rifle requires shooting strong side and weak side (so off both shoulders) as above it’s amazing what results you can achieve with understanding and practice. My weak side rifle shooting is close to as good as my strong side as makes no difference score wise....:thumb:

    Great advice but the post is from 2013.
    The op may well have sorted a solution, for any looking for advice now in 2021, always best to shoot from dominant eyes shoulder.
    Otherwise learn like Dunks says, there are sights like easyhit which do work as only the eye lined up with rib can see it. Other one is a flip out bead for left eye or a crossover stock.

    I know where you are coming from as I had a similar problem, however, the solution to it is not as drastic as it may seem in relearning to shoot off the other shoulder. I tried everything, cross over stocks, glasses with the left lens blurred, eye patch, barrel shield and shooting from the left shoulder. All gave a minor improvement in accuracy but none were comfortable to use, the method that proved best was to dim the left eye by partially closing it to let the right eye become dominant as the gun is mounted. Previous to this my skeet scores were low but after getting used to this method they went up to in the 20's with many a full house. It works exceptionally well at DTL as the gun is mounted and fully closing the eye does not affect target acquisition. The only other thing I would say is rather than spend out money on lessons, have your gun fitted to perfectly align with your right eye,
