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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    HI Guys i wondered what troos and jackets you wear for about £150-£200. Ive been bought the snowbee troos and jacket for chrimbo from uttings, on special for £99,the material is fab ,lovely and warm, and very waterproof, but let down by shyte poppers which fall off.
    Ive got two sets here to go back,both with popper failure, some are put on properly and some are put on by a 2 year old using a toffee hammer.
    You cant fault Uttings customer service, which has been brill,but i think i'll give up on the snowbee,the poppers are just crap.
    So that was that, so what do you guys recommend?Ive got a full camo set up but was looking for summat a bit more weatherproof and warmer.
    cheers Pauly.

    I just use an old falklands windproof smock and a pair of jungle trousers. or sometimes I just wear black jogging bottoms. pair of bates boots. if its cold I just put a jumper under the smock and wear a black fleece hat.
    being military im spoiled as ive got loads of kit.
    you must be mad to go and spend 100+ on camo jackets. although I do really like the English oak camo jackets!

    I always wonder if some of the gear available is really worth the money ? Or is it sometimes a bit of a status symbol ?

    Really like Duck Dri clothing. Ive been wearing their stuff for many years Beating and Shooting , etc
    www.duckdri.co.uk

    Sadly their website doesn't do their products justice tbh.
    'Off the peg' and made to measure, and they'll do repairs if needed. Made in Leicestershire.

    Can also be seen at most Game Fairs this year I assume as they do every year.


    Also found some moleskin trousers recently at Tescos of all places. £15 pr. Bargain for the quality

    I spend 9 years in the Dutch TA and left just before I moved to Scotland in 2011. I had to hand in most of my kit but I managed to take(read; nick) some items with me like my DPM smock(we call it a Bilaminaat), shirts,trousers,goretex rain trousers, wooly pully,maggot,etc as I thought it might be useful for the outdoors here and indeed I use it for dog walking en in the future for hunting.
    I think the Dutch DPM is perfect for the British landscape, especially in the autumn and winter when colours start fading. For that matter I think it works a bit better than British DPM because British DPM has harder colours.

    Hello
    i hate with a passion the look of Army type cammo as it sends the wrong message out
    i have Deerhunter Ram jacket & trousers,
    My latest jacket after ripping the Ram on barbed wire came from Country Covers
    It is exceptionally tough and warm
    It was a part christmas present, can't fault it

    Army surplus for me, kitted out for
    All 4 seasons including 2 pairs of boots for the price of a fancy real tree jobby. For the average price of around £15 per item including the Goretex stuff it matters not a jot if it gets ripped or torn as it becomes cost effective to replace.
    Regards, Stu.
