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.

    Do many people use safety glasses over their perscription ones? If so where did you get them from. I have tried some but usual will not fit.

    I never wear safety specs for shooting but I do have to at work.

    You can buy over specs, but i wouldn't recommend them as they are uncomfy and tend to give lots of glare as well as restricted side vision.

    You can get prescription safety specs though which is what i have now.

    They are basically normal glasses with perspex lenses and side shields.

    I wear safety glasses when clay pigeon shooting. One time at a club fragments of clay rained down from an overhead target path and I was glad to have them.

    I don't use safety glasses for any other shooting.

    The only time I think I should have worn glasses was while shooting Co2 against a hard backstop,ripped through a whole 10 shots and they all came back and hit me in the forehead,soon learnt my lesson :D

    Safety glasses are compulsory for clays, & it's worth paying extra for a prescription pair if you need them as they are so much better, as stated the over glasses type have their own problems - I've been wearing them at work for 40 years & they would be a definite handicap for shooting.

    If you have prescription lenses & need a new prescription it's worth contacting these people, they reglaze your glasses at about 25 quid a go as they only charge for new lenses:

    First time I ever bothered to wear safety glasses my auto ejected straight onto the stand frame and it bounced straight back into the middle of the right lens worth every penny right there. Topgun make some reasonable pairs that have an insert for prescription lenses, else payout for a custom pair. They seem like a waste of money right up until they do the thing you bought them for then you realise they are invaluable.

    I only wear them when plinking with solid objects that cause ricochet. Especially if only a few yards away

    At one skeet ground near me they are a must and the old boy there gives you a right earful if you do not wear them! Those in Kent will prob know where I am talking about!

    I had a brief panic the other day, shot a squirrel at the farm and heard the pellet fly past my ear and rustle the bushes next to me :p
    I bought some glasses about 4 hours later but have yet to warm to them

    I use the Revision Sawfly safety specs at work, the lad brought them back from Afghanistan for me, standard spec for the British Army, 3 swappable lenses, Yellow, Dark and clear, better than what we get on the Rigs but haven't worn then whilst shooting, should do really.

    Aye, you don't go outside offshore without them on, should do the same when shooting. (Especially those who shoot muzzle loaders!)
