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.

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.

Hunting Belt

    Recently we have seen some very nice Western style gun belts on the forum and belts have been used alongside firearms for centuries. Once we head away from the range we need some way of storing all the extra kit that goes along with a gun and I've tried a few, old gas mask bags, combat style vests, large waist bags, game bags, rucksacks and sometimes just stuffing it all into my pockets. Some items are essential while others like food, drinks and extra clothing can be carried in a bag and dropped off somewhere to spend the rest of the day lightweight. It's been a problem that's bugged me for a while.

    Now I have 3 issues. First I have no proper feeling in my left hand so if I stuff something in a "left hand" pocket it's a pain identifying it by touch and getting it out, second I use two air rifles and two shotguns and I don't want a belt for each and third, I'm a grab and go man, I don't want to spend hours getting ready to go out, someone else in the house is much better at that than me!

    So I decided to put a shooting belt together, everything in it's place and easy to access and this is the result. So far it's working really well, all I have to do is change the ammunition pouches, put it over whatever clobber I'm wearing and off we go. One thing, it's at about the maximum weight to fit comfortably but it does get some extra support from an over the shoulder binocular pouch.

    L-R
    Radio pouch - essential for comms with my mate so we know each others line of fire
    Old ammo pouch - extra .410 cartridges / pellets, mini 1st aid kit
    Finn Knife
    Torch holder - torch or camera mini tripod in summer
    Gutting pouch - game carrier, rubber gloves, freezer bags and folding knife
    Roll up dump bag - whatever, pork pie, mars bar, small water bottle, empty cartridges, rubbish
    Wilkins pellet pouch - 1 of 2 .22 and .177
    Cartridge pouches - .410 on belt, 12 bore under. Can wear extra cartridge belt above this lot if needed

    So does anyone else use a set up like this. How do you carry your essential kit?

    I use something similar to this one, not for hunting just for carrying spare tin of pellets, s410 mags and fill probe in old pellet tin, sweets, paper hankies for runny nose:D, whistle, club membership card, and any other odds and sods I need.

    Looks good, but like OED I use a fly fishing type vest with lots of pockets if I need to carry a lot of kit ... tried belts in the past, but they are difficult to get at quickly and bulky under a long coat in the autumn/winter and they make the coat ride up if you're going over a few fences etc.

    One essential you have forgotten is something in case you get caught short ....

    I carry one of them in my fishing box, I told someone at a comp shoot once that I had one, and they wanted to know if they could use the box toilet:D
