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.

    As requested...

    I've done a quick video showing what a .22 will do against a vest, my arm was starting to hurt so I didnt do much of a test, give me a few weeks and I'll do some more with different ammo and guns

    I tried a .177 from my CX4 a few weeks back, they bounced of as well when using the Domes, with pointed pellets they stuck into the plastic outer layer... but it did no real harm...

    I would love to try a full power .177, hopefully I'll do this in the next week or so

    K16TS, the plates are made by Meggitt Composites in a Bristol Armour water proof molle vest

    I got a few of these from when I was working in Estonia, good vest, nice and light, for what they are...

    No they are not covert I'm afraid, I got them via Solider of Fortune, paid £300 a vest but that was about 4 years ago now.

    I did have the full specs on them but lost them now, from personal experiance I can say they are stab resistant and also seen a college take a 9mm with one, but as there are no plates it still hurt him quit badly with impact truma.

    I some times use the vest when out shooting with out the amour in it as the molle clips are very useful for my kit.

    for door work I would personaly try to get hold of a Police style zip up vest, Thats what I used, under a suit jacket it still looks smart and is more pratical then a covert vest for taking on and off.

    Some one wasn't happy about house rules... - he was asked to leave and returned a few hours later to vent his frustration.

    Welcome to lovely world of East European Casinos... Never had the pleasure of the Cambodian ones and nor would I ever want to, but the firm I work for has sites out there. It's one of the few places I point blank refuse to do a site visit to.

    No idea.

    The shot was taken from a car, we couldn't prove it was him, we knew it was... if you get what I mean. Police was next to useless, the Casino owners where not overly keen on it been looked into deeply, there are not the regulations and governing bodies like in most of the Western world in gambling and such as.

    Shortly after I came back to the UK to do some UK sites, my mate ended up working over in the states.

    And no worries about the questions, you never learn any thing if you don't ask mate :)

    I thought I had some lying about, but was unable to find any, my wife is to good a cleaner :rolleyes: (you cant put nowt down)..anyway Wouldn't recommend you use them in a sub 12 ft/lb .177 pcp or you will definitely go over the limit, I used them in my 14.5 fac S410, they where very tight in the barrel, but easily loaded in to my magazine.

    There 21 grains in .177 think they'd do a bit more damage then a .22 because of the higher velocity, I suppose you could ask in your local gun-shop if they have a range if you could, chrono your gun, whilst putting a pile-driver through it, with you vest has a back stop ...then in turn you would be, killing two birds with one stone as to speak, and a sevice

    A, finding out if your vest will take it.
    and ..
    B, If its advisable for the shop keeper to sell pile-drivers, to none Fac, airgun owners.
