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.

  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.

    ^^ This ^^

    Will you be lamping or using a night vision add on of some sort, or daylight shooting only ?

    Do you have a laser range finder or other means of establishing known distance ?

    In my experience the further out a target is the bigger the margin of error when trying to guess distance, yet the further away the target the more accurate your judgement must be for accurate shooting.

    One final question - will you be using subsonic ammo only ?

    A good old 3-9x40 with some form of ballistic reticle as .22lr has quite a loopy trajectory. Glass quality for low light shooting if needed, will be down to your budget.

    The range of MTC scopes are very good for the money, i run 3 mambas and im very pleased with them,also on the night vision channel there is a guy who makes a ready made adaptor to screw a night vision camera straight on the back of most mtc scopes, and their cust service is awesome.They are around £200.

    Hi

    You might want to look out for a pre-owned Zeiss Conquest - one went on this Forum for 350£ recently, boxed and papers?
    Excellent glass for the outlay and can be moved to full-bore if/as and when........also lifetime (ok only via US) warranty but, in my opinion, at pre-owned price will beat any other scopes at this price point.

    Cheers, L

    PS I have 3 - on .22lr (3-10x44), .17hmr (4.5x44) and .222 (4.5-14x44)
