  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 use one of these Keith - it's brilliant: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0039VXC4I/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It's the same as the Fox one, but without the price. :)

    I use this kettle with it: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CPW0UT2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Again, it's the same as the Fox one, but without the price. :)

    For many years I used a Coleman multi-fuel as gas ones were so useless. This combination however, is just perfect; cheap, lightweight, works well in summer or winter and doesn't use much gas.

    Same as above. It's also similar to the Trakker one, just better. And cheaper.

    Depends on what you want out of it @Farty?

    There’s many out there at budget busting prices but so many of them are useless at cold temps as they do not have “pre heater tubes” - that’s the brass tube that goes around the burner warming the gas before it’s ignited.

    I go through a stove a year! But if you want budget and reasonable I would look at the Go Systems range mate.

    I would say Coleman Peak 1 or Sportster stove or kelly kettle as above with the cook kit.

    What sort of stove are you after?

    Butane stoves come in many shapes and sizes and yuou can get em cheap of amazon, and a pot that the stove and gas will fit in - something like this:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Odoland-Ca...9Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=


    If you want something a bit more upmarket I can recommend (I've used mine on many backpacking and camping trips as well as days out - the boil time is really good)

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Optimus-St...gateway&sprefix=optimus+stove,aps,127&sr=8-46

    if your after a spirit burner you can't go wrong with a Trangia:

    A 25 or 27 might be more then you need but what about one of these:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Trangia-Mi...words=trangia&qid=1565348859&s=gateway&sr=8-7

    Expect a good 8min boil time on a stove like this for a cuppa.

    Dangerous gas connection, Butane is useless in colder temperatures, flame will blow out if you so much as fart and as you said 'Expect a good 8min boil time on a stove like this for a cuppa.' Total waste of money and gets through loads of gas for very little return. :(

    The first two you linked to though will be fine. :)

    In autumn and winter you must use Propane or a Butane Propane mixture with all of them. :thumb:
     
  14. They sure do it just depends how portable he needs it. If he's using it while on the move (trekking) in a back pack it'll be far to big and heavy but if he's just carrying it from the car to the side of a lake for fishing or a permission that'll be just fine. You can also get them cheaper but the one I shared has 8 gas canisters with it so for £20 odd it's worth it. Just depends on his situation and what the op needs it for

    Always hard to get quality when you are on a budget. I have had one of these since 1985 when I used to do a bit of specimen tench fishing - apart from a couple of generators and some new pump washers it has been faultless and it heats a kettle in no time. I have used it a lot for melting lead. If you could find a second hand one maybe? There is one with feet that extend - the hinges rust so I would not recommend that model.

  19. I'm not saying your wrong but how are they aloud to sell them if there dangerous to use ?
    Well one of these will be no good for @Farty then.
    @Farty when you say long day sessions in the colder months can you be more specific will that be at a range/hide shooting or just walking around your permission

    Think you ought to look again at the link mate :confused:

    The third one is a Trangia - that is a spirit stove and will (arguably) function at similar temperatures then a butane/ propane stove (although if that is the case I would go for a Trangia 27 or 25 for the better storm shield). I have successfully lit meth stoves at about -12 in the past.

    Not entirely true! A gas canister works through the vaporization of the gas within the canister. Butane stops vaporizing at about -0.5 celsius, Isobutane at about -11 celsius. Propane will stop vaporizing at -41 Celsius. We also have to remember the vaporization process cools the gas within the canister! Most mini gas stove canisters nowadays are actually a Isobutane/ propane mix these will work effectively down to just about any temperature you care to be out in - but when it gets cold your just burning the propane so the canister will only last about a fifth of the time!

    Most backpackers will sleep with their fuel canister (be it gas or spirit) in cold conditions (all you have to do is raise the temperature of the fuel to achieve vaporization) - the ambient temperature is somewhat irrelevant! But if we are talking really cold temperatures (and I didn't think we were because I understood to be talking about been out shooting) then then obvious choice would be a liquid fuel stove that runs on white gas.

    For the record I own all the stoves I have mentioned here - except the cheap Chinese import one and they will all do the job of making a cuppa on a cold day in this country - I've pushed them all to greater extremes then that!

    Personally though I would just use a flask because I'm not sure what people with compressed air canisters would think of you lighting up a stove at the range!
