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.'

    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.

    nope never.

    if its cold i'd wear as thin gloves as possible (rugby glovesare brill)
    they are thin offer good grip and are finger less.

    if its cammo you are woried about having realtree on your fingers wont exactly help but if you have shiny white hands and are in the sun then they will give you away because they are moving.

    what i do, if i'm shooting something with good eyes i take a lump of mud and rub the top of my hand in it.

    my palm will be closed over the rifle so just the top bit will ceep them hidden.

    also as you use .177 reloading is a pain at the best of times you dont want gloves:D

    or fill the mag up at home but dont put the full mag into the gun when driving, its bad practice:up:

    I use some green wool mittens where the tops fold back so you can pock your fingers out.
    Bit warm now though.
    Also i have some black cotton "fitters" gloves with rubber beads on the palm and finger tips.
    But wear them when you zero in your rifle as well ,as you lose all feeling of how light your trigger is.

    I was asking about "shooting gloves", and I have some, stretchy material, they have little slits on some of the fingers where you can put your fingers through the gloves for things like reloading :up:

    I use some thin cammo gloves when hunting, taking one off to re-load the mag if necessary. I saw some yesterday where the back of the gloves was just netting - cool :D. I use cycling gloves (padded and fingerless) when shooting my springer.

    I have those neoprene things, with ADV. Timber camo, velcro wrists & finger flick-ups. They absorb water really easily, so it's usually warmer without them. It's hard to grip the gun aswell.

    neoprene is desined to soak up water, it makes a thin layer of water next to your skin, the water warms up and works like a hot water bottle.

    i have a full body suit made of neoprene. (they are called wetsuits)

    the wetsuit works the same way as the gloves do.
    fills with water and the water warms up.

    also if you do get gloves get dingy sailing gloves.
    keep you warm if things are wet and they are hard wearing as they are desined to take the friction of ropes (sailing people call ropes sheets)

    they also dont go stiff.

    they are fingerless to giving you dexterity:up:

    unfortunately they come at a price:(
