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.

    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.'

  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 currently building a DIY NV set up and ordered a Chinese 12V Rechargeable Li-po Battery and charger off Flebay for £15.00 and it's crap, the charger fell apart when I opened the parcel!!!! I believe these can be very hit and miss as some/most of them are just old laptop batteries repackaged so be careful what you order.

    I've now ordered the battery below from a UK supplier which although a bit more expensive would at least allow me to try and sort any problems out over the phone (hope they won't be any though).

    sorry for my ignorance, I'm a newbie and trying to learn off this forum. Am I right in thinking this 12V DC Rechargeable Li-On Lithium 6800mAh Battery replaces 2 AA batteries.

    I'm far from being and expert but 2 x AA batteries are only 3v (2 x 1.5 v each) where as the Rechargeable Li-On Lithium 6800mAh Battery is 12v.

    Hi Guys,

    Just my two cents.. I upgraded from the old chinese 12v battery as it was unreliable and didn't last as long as I needed. I upgraded to a 11.1v 5000mah Lipo. Then due to interference from the oslon black led and 12v driver board, I added a 2nd lipo. 1 powered the camera and monitor, the other was independantly wired to the torch, this eliminated the interference. I now have a set up that runs for 6 hours.

    I dont understand why the 12v chinese batteries are still being used. The only problem with the Lipos are that they need a to be charged with a slightly more technical charger and you need to make sure they do not run under their minimum operating voltage. Apert from that, they knock the socks off anything else. Unless you use a car battery, but that obviously has its drawbacks.
