      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

      Editing your posts

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

      Upgrade   01/16/2018

      Well it took me longer than expected and it was a bumpy road, but the forum is now upgraded to the latest version. The previous skin will no longer work with this new version, but I will check to see if there is a similar one for this version. Enjoy and if you encounter any problem just report it.

Amazing! You wouldn't take one of those in the shoulder and get up and fight back, like John Wayne :poster_oops:

Takes me back a bit.

 

I used to manage a company that made, amongst other things, a thermal ceramic plate for inclusion in the casting of armour plate.

Apparently there was some kind of "round" that actually burnt it's way through the armour. The inclusion of the thermal ceramic plate stopped it burning through.

 

When cast the metal permeated the ceramic fibre which meant the temperature resistance was increased.

 

The same system was used in engine pistons to enable them to run hotter and at higher pressures.

 

Good vid anyway :thumb:

It's not really one million feet per second is it? 189 miles a second? what the heck fires it.

Ha ha, there is always one.

Just because this is a airgun forum and you see fps, does not mean the fps is abbreviated for Feet Per Second.

 

FPS in this case is an abbreviation of Frames Per Second.

So that is 1 Million Frames Per Second, the speed at which the bullets were filmed at.

thanks for the explanation J-B it did sound a bit fast, and cameras a bit faster than my Box Brownie.

Strangely hypnotic to watch those splashes, the penetrating shots made me think of 88mm rounds and sherman tanks for some strange reason.
