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.

  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.

    As the subject says? Are they any good just for basic rangefinding for zeroing purposes etc? Not looking for expensive one's and no end of cheap one's on Amazon/EBay but of course you get what you pay for I know. I seem to be leaning towards the very small Monocular type as they would be so easy to just carry in a pocket while out with the Rifle. Any of you use one and have an opinion on them? Thanks.

    Andy :)

    Hi ... I have just bought a range finder, VisionKing, £84 from a UK seller on fleabay, metric and imperial distances, easy to use, very light, comes with a soft case which will fit in your pocket or on a belt. Love it :)

    Thanks for the reply, but £84.99 + £4.99 postage is way too much for just finding out exact distance for zeroing my scope now and then. That's why I asked about Binoculars/Monocular with built in rangefinder so I can also use it for searching fields for bunnies etc and be a simple rough rangefinder too. Just wondered if they are fit for purpose or a waste of money for the "cheap" prices you see on EBay etc? :rolleyes:

    Andy :)

    Well I guess that depends on income etc :) But no, in this sport I have fast discovered that a £100 notes is pocket change really :rolleyes: As said in my last post, I couldn't justify that amount for something I would only use very occasionally :p Heck, I could almost buy my next rifle brand new for that (a cheap but very good Hatsan 55s .177) :D I guess nobody uses these things then so I may just have to do as much research as I can and buy one and hope it works as I want it too ;)

    Andy :)
