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.

    as above people I am thinking about building something for rats and rabbits , show me what you have , I like dedicated sentinels but , want something more robust that isn't 2 meters long when fitted to rifle .

    I don't mind using the bay to build something that's effective . maybe a camcorder ? but if possible I don't want the glare of a screen either ??

    have a look at silverfoxes thread re night vision, its a scope less system using an old camera lens, i have looked through his and its spot on, i use a photon and find its ideal for vermin, you just need add a front cap with 25mm hole i think someblokes thread will have details using a cap off a spray can then you get a much better picture.

    they move that fast the technology , I don't know what to get for the best ... but I did fancy not watching a screen and looking through a " more of scope " using the ns200 its more like pointing a video game and not shooting ... I mean I could use a camcorder

    If you're wanting to 'look through a scope' rather than at a screen you're cutting down on the options but it can be done. A camcorder isn't very good as a night vision device and they tend to be quite heavy and awkward to fit to the rear of the scope and they are going to add a fair bit to the length of the scope so you won't be able to use it in the normal way.
    To keep the length down you will need to be a bit more adventurous, a scopeless unit with a near eye display of some sort. At its simplest the display could be the viewfinder from an old camcorder (CRT type) or you could go for the ultimate - an oled screen with magnifier but by the time you've done all that you could probably have bought something dedicated. There are some small (1.5") cctv viewing screens which look quite promising at around the £100 mark.
    Although you said you don't fancy a screen it might be worth trying one if you can find someone in your area with one as quite a few people find that they can actually get on with them in spite of earlier worries. This would mean you could get a rear add on fitted at a lower cost.
    The e700 camera is probably the favourite at present, a plumbing fitting adapter, battery, screen and torch and that's it. Best to try and see some working before you start spending money.
