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.'

  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.

    Hi all

    Just wondering does anyone know of a good camo suit for summer as my winter one is definitely a bit thick now.
    Don't really want to spend to much though. I just dont want one that sounds like your wearing an asda bag?

    Leave the Goretex alone if you want quiet.

    Just wear dull, muted colours and not the same throughout, green trousers and brown top, that kind of mix.....a good hat and then stay off the skyline and in the shadows. that is all you need.

    Army combats are cheap if you must have dpm, summer stuff available too but as Accuspell rightly points out a mix of drab colours will be fine.

    German flectarn can be bought quite cheaply, best of the bunch at the price it sells for.

    I have Deerhunter jacket and trousers, great combo for all weather, you will see lots of opinions on camo, cheap stuff, expensive stuff, various patterns etc but, none of them will be of any use without field craft.

    You need to be able to move slowly, keep down from the skyline/horizon and keep very still in many situations ;)

    Cheap as chips?

    Quiet?

    Try article 271025481334 off of ebay!

    NBC camo suits, idiots will tell you they sound like crisp packets,they do not! Used these as my main summer hunting outfits for over 3 years. They work! If it is really hot, simply remove the charcoal impregnated inner liner with a pair of scissors!

    Get yourself a couple of these, cut the liner out of one for really hot days, keep the liner in one for cooler days. Ideal! Cheap! Suppresses your scent if the liner is in, I mean it is supposed to keep gas out after all!

    Army surplus stores will have everything you need. You don't have to go down the expensive realtree route for Hunting. Dare to be different. ;)

    Something to think about, i went shooting yesterday evening, it was still light and i was planning on doing a few hours into dark, so i was having a mooch around seeing which fields the horses were in before dark.
    I still had my jeans on and a white T shirt as my hunting clothes were in the back of the truck, i spotted a group of rabbits along a hedgerow so went to get a gun from the truck, i got the gun, loaded it and crept back quietly to within range of the rabbits.

    I took four of them before they wised up ;)
