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.

    For the coffee heads - how do you do your coffee/how do you take it?

    Just curious to find out if anyone else is as OCD with how they take their caffeine hit as I am.

    [p.s. I like tea as well so it's not a HW100 v's R10 thread :D]

    Black Strong and nothing in it except a little cold water to make it drinkable.
    I started drinking coffee after working in France for a bit. I then bought an espresso machine, I have a double shot of black label Lavazza in a mug, but allow the water to filter on until the mugs full. No suger no milk. I work away and havn't found a reasonable coffee whilst away so now I ake a bag of Milicano, 2.5 tea spoons in a mug, again black no suger but a little cold water to make it drinkable. Nearest think I've found to fresh coffee instant.
    I always make it myself as others just can't make it to suit, filtered stuff most places is just like brown warm water and I've never found an instant that I like.
    I started grinding my own beans for a bit but that was jsut too much of a faff I soon got bored with that.

    I got a cracking cafetiere mug at christmas, enough for 1 cup, it has a lid as well. It was from firebox I think. That was my landrover cuppa in the mornig when I went out shooting.

    The first step to getting help is admitting you have a problem ......... :)

    Colombian coffee, one sugar, milk in first so you don't burn the coffee. Took a year of moaning for my missus to finally get the message. You are not alone Mr egg.

    Oh dear......

    Grind 15g beans (hitting Monsoon Malabar big time just now) while kettle's boiling.

    Set up my coffee maker (Aeropress, inverted), tip the ground beans in, wee shake to level it off.

    Kettle's boiled - leave it for a minute.

    Slow pour the water over the grounds - start timer on my iPhone at this point - over a 20 second period.

    Let the mix bloom for 10 seconds.

    Gently stir grounds for 10 seconds.

    Slow pour water until the syringe is full - 10 seconds.

    Allow to brew for 40 seconds (place filter & holder on end of syringe at 35 seconds).

    Invert on to cup, press down over a period of 30 seconds.

    Clean the syringe.

    Drink coffee.

    ... I have coffee OCD and my wife's scorn is well placed :(

    Way I see it is if you're going to be a bear, be a grizzly - the above makes a stonking cup of brown (no milk or sugar) but herself's in gales of laughter when she sees me faffing about like a mad professor.

    As with air rifles and vaping - what does she know? :coffee:
