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.

    As per title folks, the HSF stuff seems great value but is it good quality, I know it's hard to get quality at low prices just wondering what brand gives the best of both? Deerhunter stuff seems good too... But there are so many brands.

    cheers folks.

    Try German Army Flektarn cammo gear, beautifully made and very hard wearing, I got the Parka Jacket and matching trousers for less than £25, absolute bargain from my local RFD.

    As above ,Surplus kit is as cheap as chips and hard wearing. Won't be expensive to replace if you're unfortunate enough to be on the end of bramble snags or rips.

    I bought the HSF stuff as a complete deal, was £60 for jacket, trousers, gloves and balaclava.
    It's been very good! It's certainly waterproof in the short term, for as long as I want to be in te rain anyway, warm in winter, perhaps too hot in summer though, and tough! I've rolled around in the dirt and messed with barbed wire and brambles etc. and been pleasantly suprised how well it's stood up to it.

    I'm sure there's cheaper, and also better but more expensive, but value for money wise it's been very good I think?

    As said the British Army DPM is good, I'd spend a little extra and get the Goretex ones myself.

    If you're feeling Gucci then the new MTP gear is nice but you can get the Polish version - Camogrom - quite cheap if you shop around ;)

    German army Flecktarn is as good as anything and the camo pattern was designed for the Jerry's running around the English countryside.

    Getting a bit more difficult to get hold of now though, think ze Germans have a new issue kit.

    Most of the time good old DPM 95 works in the UK, be it summer or winter (unless everywhere has been coated in snow then it is a case of buy some white painters overalls).
