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.

Scope lenses/glasses fogging or misting up ?

    at work we have to wear safety specs and sometimes safety goggles. depending on the area, the environment can have massive fluctuations in temperature and can involve working in confined spaces that are hot, cold or full of steam (wont bore you with the details!).
    anyway, we have always had trouble with our safety eyewear steaming/fogging up. i have sourced an anti mist spray, and thoroughly tested it at work, and its great. one quick spray, a wipe off, and the safety specs are mist free for at least 2 full shifts (2 x 12 hours of use). the spray is a cleaner, lens protector as well as having anti misting properties.
    the spec sheet says its designed for coated lenses, so i think it will be great for the external of scope lenses and for shooters who wear glasses - i've seen a few threads of late mentioning this very problem, and asking for a remedy.

    i told 'the robin' (simon) of the spray, and to cut a long story short, he tried it and was blown away by the stuff.
    no doubt he will be along soon to add to the thread and verify this.

    this is the stuff - salclear vision http://www.salclear.com/contents/en-uk/d5.html

    obviously i'm not connected with the product or company, i just thought it would be of use to some members, and a bottle would be a great addition to the gunbag

    A little trick I use in my trade to stop car windows misting up. Tiny bit of fairy liquid on a cloth, rub it well in, voila! No more misty windows. No reason why it shouldn't work on glasses.

    Don't forget that Fairy liquid contains salt, so it can cause corrosion of metal parts its near.

    Rainex also does the job - but if people haven't already got a Rainex kit this is probably similar stuff in a smaller quantity. If you have Rainex in the garage - use it, I do. On the car windscreen, lights, mirrors, motorcycle helmet visor inside and out (godsend on a long motorway trip with the much trucks throw up!) I use it on my scopes and binos too.

    Rain ex is great when you are driving in torrential rain, you don't need the wipers on at all, it has to be seen to be believed. Even on the motorway stuck behind a lorry at 60 mph the spray just glides off the screen.

    another simple way lads is to use shower gel. rub it on then wipe it off. sounds daft but it works. had a whole company of men using it on their visors for their helmets when doing riot training. trust me it works!

    Thank you. I now have a mental picture of your company of men, all sharing the same shower gel.:D

    Thanks Steve, I was one of the other thread Op's asking for advice and this seems just the remedy.....:up: I've tried a lot of suggestions but sadly with little success.

    I have RainX in the shed but the bottle specifically says 'Not for coated lenses or mirrors' so I haven't like to try it on my expensive scope..! It may well work the same but the risk seemed too high. We travelled to Scotland from Kent in heavy rain all the way once and didn't touch our wipers in 400 miles, great stuff when you're going above 50mph as the water turns into fine beads that need fast air to blow them away, otherwise they stay on the glass.......:up:
