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.

  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.

MiY Front shooting rest review

    I was lucky enough to win a competition hosted by Picklehoffer to win one of his Made In Yorkshire rifle rests. It arrived the other day and I promised him I would do a review.

    I haven't had it out in all weathers or anything too extreme, but I've done a bit of shooting with it now and am ready to spill the beans! This is the bag I received: http://www.miykit.com/Front-Bag-Dark-Green-FB-Dk-Gr.htm

    First impressions were very good; the bag arrived securely packaged and pre-filled with polystyrene beads. I believe that you can get the bag filled also with solid plastic balls, or it can come empty to be filled with a medium of your choice by way of the filling chute that can be found on the underside of the bag. I think this in itself is an excellent idea; it gives you the flexibility to move from one medium to another (say sand to polystyrene) without having to buy another bag to suit your preferences.

    The top panel of the bag is made of a felted material to minimise scratches to your stock, and a webbing carry handle is found on one end panel. The body of the bag is made from good strong Cordura which should easily stand up to years of use. There is a bit of a dip in the middle of the top panel to guide the fore-end of the rifle or to accommodate the shooter's hand, depending on your shooting style.

    Here is the bag supporting my HW95. As you can see the bag will easily hold the rifle without any assistance from the shooter:

    I found the bag to offer a good level of support and to be very comfortable to use; it offers enough help without the shooter becoming stuck in one place and having to work around the bag. This is a good bit of kit, and all the more so for being made by hand in the UK and by a forum member. I can certainly recommend this bag to anyone who wants a reasonably-priced rest, and if the other items in the MiY range are as good as this one, then they should be a safe bet too.

    Thanks very much to Picklehoffer - I can add him to the ever-growing list of forum members who produce good shooting kit at very good prices.

    Cheers,

    JR

    Thanks for the review, and don't forget you have a gun on your roof.

    Thanks to JRK for the review! Glad you like the bag mate....don't worry about it getting wet, that cordura fabric is PU backed and is fully waterproof! The felt panel on top is actually in addition to the cordura panel underneath it not instead of it. So, if the bag gets wet, it's only the felt itself that might absorb a small amount of water, water cannot get into the bag! (That's the theory! ;)).

    Well , the bags have arrived and I'm pleased as punch with them , for some reason I can't post any pics at the minute but soon as it lets me I will put some up . Just want to say a massive thankyou to Neil and co at Miy kit , the bags arrived sooner than expected and they even refunded me some pennies as the work was cheaper than quoted . The communication from these guys was amazing too , absolute pleasure to deal with . Cheers guys .
