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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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 made my own using a E700 camera and 35mm camera lens. Although it worked it is very bulky, therefore i have now bought one from Sure24, seems ok for the money.

    There's spotters and there's spotters lol. The videos below shows a few variants that I make to order for sale, but how are you intending to use one? If you hunt alone on foot you'll do well to have a monocular type that will fit into a pocket - but some of us get eye-burn using devices with near eye viewers.

    My spotters have 5" 800x480 monitors as the lid of a box that carries user supply batteries inside it. It's not ideal for a lone hunter on foot but brilliant for a buddy to become more involved with your hunt - or to use from a truck. I also do them with suction mount bases for attaching to a windscreen or roof with pan and tilt actions.

    I'm gearing up to make one with a pan tilt mag-mount to place on a car roof - to be manually adjusted via a tilt/slide sunroof. That will have a choice of my usual 5" monitor on a trailing cable into the cab - or wifi transmitting to your mobile or tablet inside the truck.

    The prices start at £240 + the various options that can be selected. I don't use 'make do parts' some of my components are custom made specifically to my requirements so if its a cheapy you want, sorry but I'm not your man.

    Rather than copy and paste a whole bunch of stuff here it would be easier to check out the first Google result for > pistol grip spotters < Bear in mind you'll need to budget in your own 18650 flat top batteries and a decent charger. The one's that come with torches for example are not up to the job. I have links to a good charger on that thread.
