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.

    Not thought of it, may be worth a go, if the quarry is use to amber or red it may well confuse them and give you a good shot, give it a try mate and report back, you may well be on to something:up:

    Switched from red to green with good results - you can reduce the output with green too (if you have a dimmer) because green wavelength travels further than red wavelength, so it seems brighter to us. You can see this for yourself next time you watch a ship coming in to port at night - when dead ahead and you can see both red and green lights, the green always looks brighter, even though they are the same distance away. Green works well, this is the wrong area to be able to post pictures! :D

    I think it's the ultra violet light which shows up bodily fluids although you may need filtered goggles or similar to see it well. As I understand it a lot of the quarry species are more sensitive to shorter wavelength light such as blue. White shows up particulalry well under UV light and often flashes of white, eg rabbit/deer tail etc, act as a warning when the animal starts running. Woodpigeon are supposed to be able to see their wing bars at long distances so it's probably not going to be very covert.

    Another thing to bear in mind with blue is if you have it flickering through hedge rows etc it can look like lights from police cars.
    I have heard tales of farmers running around half dressed on seeing the blue light from a window thinking some thing is going on their land. Only to find the rabbit shooter with his blue filter.
    If you give it a try I would let people know, they will recognise red and white but blue could worry them.
    Cheers Andy

    filter colors

    I like to keep them guessing,after they seem to attach that color with danger i leave the shoot for a week or 2 then hit them with a different color,seems to work fine until they recognise that color with danger,but i always use red to start ,i make my own filtered covers as other members do with colored film from lighting or hobbie shops. ive a mate who sends me loads from when he does a light show.nice quaility..

    I switch my colour regular at one of our rat shoots as they get used to it if I stick with one. Even use white to change things about, it's works
