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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    The ability to have support when firing from standing is a nice function.

    hello, that looks a tasty bit of kit, the american shooters seem to come up with some great ideas and make for the USA market, now some time back i was told of another gizmo called a squirrel claw ideal for hunting, yes you guessed it tree rats:down: it fixes on the front bipod bolt and you pull out this blade with teeth so you can steady on a tree so i thought would check out and emailed a gunsmith after much searching and he had the last 2 as they are no longer made, so i bought them as the chap who told me about them wanted one and i kept mine. so have i used it nnnaaaa:rolleyes: so much for new ideas :D

    The best shooting sticks I have ever seen bar none are made from a pair of Fox Cam Lock Storm sticks like these: http://www.anglingdirect.co.uk/store/fox-cam-lock-storm-pole

    The 48" versions open to have seven foot in two section, and need trimming down to get the right balance between being ok for sitting when closed and standing when extended. As a keen deer stalker, I have tried a variety of sticks over the years, but they cam locks on these make them far better than any of the usual twist locks normal found on sticks...

    I was going to modify a set of lighting stands i have with cam locks to do exactly this but these are so cheap for what they are i might just give them a go... Presuming they are hollow did you just drill/bolt them together?

    Very good.

    But they wouldn't be better to me than what I use for all my Rifle shooting and that's a cheap mono rest type shooting stick, they cost about £11

    I have an amputated leg so I need the mono stick it to be able to walk with the slung rifle.

    It also extendeds right up higher than the top of my head im seconds for shooting up trees or on Barn roofs.

    Also goes right down to about 20" for my hide shooting I stick it in the ground.

    I wouldn't be without mine, best £11 Ive ever spent since my accident it allowed me to shoot rifles again and hunt just like I used to.

    Not a bad bit of kit but ive always used two green sticks as a bipod which i got from the garden centre with a large elasticated band 6 inches from the top. Cost me less than a fiver!

    They look ok for the odd stalking shot, won't be any good for hours of scanning for rats etc as the weight of the gun will be hanging off your belt. Plus your belt would need to be accessable, not under a nice warm jacket etc.
