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.

    I saw an R10 at the range on Saturday with a Hugget belitia on and I don't think it was as quiet as a HW mod. It was most certainly not as quiet as my carbon blod shroud

    plenty of pics in the hunting section , just the same but 3 inches shorter and iv cut away neoprene cover for the vent bits :rolleyes: be interesting around the barns ratting tomorrow night and shooting out of the car il be very impressed if it makes a difference in one acoustic hot spot that relay carries the sound . Im very happy with it and got it from a relay nice guy on another forum , sort of thought , hey i won a free DS service for my rifle so why not , been onto my clever mate about carbon fibre buddy bottles since i seen the new DS offering :up: Looking at the rifle now it defiantly looks more in proportion being shorter in the barrel and hopefully easier to use hunting . Hey never thought id be glad my appendage shrinking would be a good thing !!

    Does it back vent??

    The shroud on my ultra back vents down the barrel, sounds louder at the shooters end, but not a peep 30-40y down range:)

    I think sometimes we get to hung up on the odd decibel sometimes, a mate of mine uses a UK Neil mod only 100mm by 28mm, and has no problem bagging rabbits!!

    Seen a few pictures of the daystates with the huggett shroud\silencer, if anything it does look insanely good:)

    Backventing means that air has access to the shroud part that's around the barrel. Is that the case here? I know there are ventilation holes at the base of the shroud but is air actually shooting out of those?

    Every Daystate I've seen/heard with a hugget mod has been the quietest guns I've ever heard, each time I thought that guy has serious power issues only to realise there was a hugget fitted.
