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.

    Got to try and keep this thread alive.


    I got to use my Olight S2A in anger on Friday night. It was my deceased Mum's birthday and I wanted to put some flowers where her ashes are buried up the crematorium. You can't drive up there after dark, there's no lights on the road, and the gardens aren't lit either.

    I normally only use the torch at home, looking for stuff in the loft, in the shed at night, that kind of thing. Out in the woods area in the dead of night is a different scenario, and the nice floody beam made the job a doddle. 550+ lumens Turbo mode wasn't needed, and 260 lumens was more than enough. In fact 120 lumens is plenty when it's properly dark.

    The downside to a floody beam, is of course a relative lack of throw. Shining the torch into a field revealed several pairs of creepy, glowing eyes. You might think that foxes out at night would be constantly on the move, looking for food. Not these guys, they were just sat there staring at me. They were about 100 yards away, and I reckon other, more "throwy" torches would have picked out the detail of the fox, rather than just a reflection in the eyes.

    I would say the Olight S2A is more suited to general purpose work around the house or garden, or kept in the car, rather than a tool for long range work.

    I must admit, I prefer a throwy beam as well.

    I have a Big Larry, a very nice torch that is "programmable" as to which function comes on with a 3 second press, so a red light first for me

    Why, oh why, did I have to stumble across this sub-forum I already have way too many flashlights and now there are these!

    I like the idea of the Big Larry :)
    Not sure at the moment what the difference between Big Larry and Big Larry 2 is, but it certainly looks a handy thing at a good price and I like that programmable memory function.:up:

    If you like the programmable aspect of it I'd suggest looking for a light running the Anduril UI, so much fun to be had :)

    I didn’t know this sub-forum existed........!:eek:

    Started to read this thread, and initially thought, how on earth can people collect torches :p

    Then sat back, and thought for a minute, about my torches, and decided to gather them all up. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:
