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.

  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.

    Bit of plinking in my back garden. Not worried about hitting the centre of the target and made no scope adjustments, just looking for the grouping.

    And I'm pretty pleased with the results...

    Thank you, mikeyhall1.

    I may have pulled a few of those shots. Just need to perfect my breathing and relaxation.
    But I'm still happy with the results.

    Thanks for the compliment, VIKING6661.
    I'm sure I could take the distance further, but I'd be shooting into the next neighbourhood, and that's illegal - ha!

    Great grouping, just keep practicing. Easy to take groups for granted. Things can go badly wrong.

    I 'pulled' a few shots there and the paper target tore quite a lot, making the shots look wider from the mark than they actually were. Would have been better to have a solid back stop, which would have shown the shots up better, but the neighbours keep complaining about the noise. :rolleyes:

    Only if you take your groupings for granted, Regal Man. Windage, elevation and shot angle play a large role in getting your shots right in the field ;)

    All things considered your doing fine, especially if your enjoying it. You would do better indoors, and also after trying several different pellets to find which one is the best for your particular gun, but enjoyment has to be key.

    Great video work by the way.

    I found superdomes to be a bit temperamental, I bet you'll tighten that group up with some jsb exacts/Diablo fields

    Hi James.

    I've already tried (and I'm still using) eight different pellets in my RM8 from other manufacturers and, like I mentioned in the video, my rifle really likes the RWS Superdome. I know other RM8's might prefer a different pellet - it will be different from gun to gun, even with the same gun from the same manufacturer. But, the RWS Superdome are fine for me right now.

    Already done that, thumbhole.
    Tried eight different manufactureres. But the RWS always seems to hit the right spot.
    Don't forget, this was just a video to show how to group your shots. And for 24 shots at 25 Metres I don't think the grouping's too bad at all.
