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.

    Has anyone ever bought a pair of shooting glasses similar to these that I'm thinking of buying?

    http://www.intershoot.co.uk/acatalog/Varga-Merkur-Frames--339.html

    I'm wondering how easy it is to get a prescription lens fitted at an Opticians. I've emailed Specsavers, but I'm still waiting for a reply.

    Also, they come in two different lens sizes, 23mm for rifle and 37mm for pistol. I'll mainly be using them for target shooting on a rifle with diopter sights, but would like to use them with my pistol as well. Would it be OK to use the 37mm lens with a rifle?

    used to work in an opticians and people would have lenses fitted to existing frames all the time so this shouldn't be an issue, cannot really see on the picture but it looks like a standard fitting (for metal framed there is a grove the lens is seated in and then the screw is tightened up which holds it in place).

    if you get a pair, put a blob of clear nail varnish on the screw head (once you have the lens fitted) so that it "bonds" it in place, stops the screw coming lose and dropping out.

    There are many Shooting Frames around

    Most Retailers can arrange prescription lenses to be fitted

    Thanks for your help Chaps. I've ordered this with both the 23mm and 37mm lens holders. I'll let you all know how I get along with them.

    I popped into my local Specsavers this morning. They're going to supply and fit both lenses for £39.00. I pick them up next Saturday. Great stuff. :up:

    Well, great service from Specsavers. They rang me up around noon yesterday (Monday) and told me that my lenses were ready. I picked them up on the way home from work and shot both rifle and pistol with them in the evening and scored really well (for me). What a difference. Well chuffed. :up:

    That's good service for something quite specialized - or should that be specialeyesed?

    See what I did there? Geddit? Geddit?

    I'll get my coat........

    Seriously though - good on them and a 3 day turnaround is pretty impressive :)

    I'm going to be very pedantic Egg,but it's actually " specialised " . You used the American spelling. :p

    You're welcome, no charge. :D

    Aaaah - auto-correct on my wife's Nexus set to American English, but now I'm out of the bath and on my PC normal Queen's service has resumed. Or is that rezumed? :D
