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.

    '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.

    British army windproof smock is one of the best hunting garments money can buy IMHO

    If you wash it with Nikwax TX Direct Wash-In it becomes very, very shower proof as well.

    If it's chucking down you won't be going out anyway but the windproof qualities of the smock are seriously beneficial in weather. I can't recommend them highly enough :up:

    In warmer weather any dark coloured t-shirt is fine.

    I tend to wear a dark t-shirt under a lightweight DPM army shirt in warmer weather, or just the t-shirt on really hot days.

    For the cold winer months you want to look at a Buffalo special 6 shirt or the current army issue lightweight thermal smock, which is on the same level for insulation at half the price or less. You can be out in minus stupid temperatures without any additional layers required - in really cold weather you might want to put a jacket on top, but when I say really cold I mean really cold...

    What spooks game is movement and noise.

    Walking slowly and quietly will help you no end when hunting - clothing doesn't need to be cammo, but it just so happens that army surplus is inexpensive and robust, and some of it is incredibly functional if you can get over the fact that you will look like a weekend warrior...

    When hunting, your smell, shape and the sounds you make will give you away more than what you're wearing does. You can spend a fortune on fancy camo patterns (90% of which are not patterns native to the UK anyway...), space-age fabrics and technical wizardry to help you shoot large bags of quarry, but if you crash around like a bull in a china shop, none of them will make a difference. Get some olive combats and an old camo jacket, a hat and a face veil and then work like mad on your fieldcraft.

    I've got a ghillie suit. It's completely impractical to use as it tangles on everything. Most times I shoot I'm in work jeans and t-shirt because that's what I'm wearing when I have time to pick up a gun. So long as I keep still and quiet it's fine.

    Many European shooters now wear hi-viz clothing in accordance with their rules and still shoot plenty. I have camo clothing and green hunting clothes but it's only really useful as hard wearing outdoor-wear.

    While you are in the surplus shop get some camouflage paint, then apply to your upper body then you won't need a shirt :D

    Or find a really muddy/boggy area and roll around in it naked and hey presto instant cammo,just like Arnie in predator! Preferably go to army surplus so you don't frighten the locals :D
