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.

  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've got the Watec902 and is right now using another cameras LCD screen. I would like to upgrade....
    Anybody tried eyewear screens for hunting/pesting?
    http://store.vuzix.co.uk/euro/acatalog/Wrap_920.html

    #1 would be just one eye screen, but they seem to be much more expensive than these "consumerscreens".

    Would be happy for any feedback...

    They are expensive, mainly because they were originally developed for the military and there has not been a big take up for consumer products using the technology (although that might change if Google "glass" takes off)
    The other problem is that one eye sees the image from the scope mounted camera while the other eye sees whatever is in front of it. This can cause disorientation and even nausea in some people.
    If you want to try some sort of monocular device, have a look at these: http://oriscape.en.alibaba.com/product/455448475-50004365/portable_monocular_display_922K.html
    I have one and am mounting it below the camera at the rear of the scope (the scope is on high rings) This gives me a sort of in-line unit with much better resolution (640x480) compared to the 320x240 3.5 and 4.3 inch LCD screens most people are using.

    Hope this helps

    Ken,
    The total price was 173 US dollars (135 for the monocular, 38 for DHL shipping) and it was here in 3-4 days
    After I had it for a few days, it stopped working (almost certainly because I had it switched on continuously for more than 3 hours)
    I sent it back to them and they repaired it free of charge
