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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    We have an opportunity to keep all the flashlight and torch talk in one new section now so if you've got one, an everyday carry that is......what is it?

    Up until Sunday mine was a my trusty Thrunite Acher, however having received the Black Friday Olight S2R Baton II it's not been in my pocket. My Thrunite is now relegated to the bag as a back up.....

    For approx the last ten years my main go to EDC light has been the Surefire Eb1 Backup , single cell cr123a with dual output , first click is full power at a whopping 110 lumens :p (that was a lot ten year ago ) second click a very discreet 5 lumen ,

    It has stood the test of time admirably , A genuine , tough as nails EDC ,

    Earlier this year I treated myself to the new updated version the backup MV “maxvision” which retains the same simple switching mech but this time 400lm and 10lm (iirc ) , the captive switch was actually on my original and just swapped them over , I much prefer that style as there’s very little chance of an accidentental discharge ... oohhh errr

    Side by side , simple pieces but if I could only choose one , it’d be the Backup .

    Following on , in the same size range I also have the V1-Vampire , very similar in size but this is fitted with a rotating head that switches between white , off and IR , with the same tail switch mech giving two stages of brightness in each output ,
    Couldn’t remember the specs offhand but here you go ,
    Specifications
    Output / Runtime -- White Light
    High 250 Lumens / 1.5 hours*
    Low 5 .0 lumens / 20.5 hours*
    Output / Runtime -- Infrared (IR)
    High 100 .0 mW / 4.75 hours*
    Low 5 .0 mW / 57.0 hours*

    A good unit if you use NV gear ,

    I like Surefire stuff, but I think their prices are ludicrous and can't be justified tbh.
    Nice kit though.

    Just a led lenser 7.2, does the job but the double click does my head in. Nice to have a low light but sometimes it would be nice just to click on and off. Great beam on these things though and quite cheap now.

    Yep I think you’ve also got an affliction to lumens....great line up. You’ve got a fair old number to choose from too.....have you been collecting them for long?
