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.

    It's one of those awkward questions which really does depend on what distance you normally shoot. On the range I normally shoot at 35yds ( TX200 at .177) but then I find this gives me a near zero of 15 yds which is the distance I shoot at home......two birds with one stone, or pellet!

    Yep makes sense Dag,if you're shooting targets at a fixed distance such as on a range you'd obviously zero at that distance but if you going to be shooting rabbits for instance where most shots would be in the 20-40 yd range then a 30yd zero would be about right and unless you're an expert shot, and I do mean expert, shots beyond that range should not be attempted, about 30yds is far enough for most of us.

    I've never had FAC air rifles, what distance would you zero an air rifle of say 24ftlb?

    Interesting, I know b****r all about FAC rifles but plugging your 24ftlb into my Chairgun table for .177 Bisley Magnums with a near zero of 24yds, and using a kill zone of 0.5", I find you are practically zeroed from 23yd to 39yd and the Point Blank Range is shown as 18 to 43 yds. Obviously different pellets and a different choice of zeros to start will give different results......but it is nice to be able to play with Chairgun before testing on the range!

    24ft lbs one can't use at a standard air gun range unless its FAC rated, Cant use it at home unless land is FAC rated. and zeroed at 24 yds why bother with FAC anyway. max zero range for FAC maybe 45 yards so i don't see the point of FAC air a lot of hassle for an extra 30 feet

    Ah well, as I said I know b all about Fac rifles. There again it was an interesting exercise to plug in completely different data and see how Chairgun illustrated the effects. I guess at about 1100fps you would definitely put a .177 right through the quarry!
