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.

    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.'

  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.

    Aye I forgot to press record once and missed (recording) getting three rabbits at 45-55m within 10m of each other in 90seconds.

    I was well chuffed (looking forward to including that in my next video) till I got home, downloaded and realised that footage was missing. :facepalm: ...hopefully never again.

    Cheers. Russ

    Shouldn't be to difficult to find :rolleyes: . It should be right next to the LRF button you also need to find when wanting to range quarry using a NV008LRF :D :facepalm:..

    Er, @PBaz Barrett you missed half the conversation. That reply was in reply to his earlier comment "Russ you’re going to find it strange when you have to use a standard scope after using the pard for so long :):thumb:"

    @PBaz Barrett My latest YouTube video on the PARD008LRF will be online in an hour or two.
    You tell me after watching that if..
    (a) switching on the LRF looks like a big deal
    ...and...
    (b) if having the ranges on-screen to the right of the reticle looks very useful / cool-as-**** / unobtrusive.
    :p

    Cheers. Russ

    Thanks very much @Codykid I'll have more very soon including...
    • footage of an add-on LRF with a horizontal laser splash.
    • a comprehensive expert Q&A session going over IR safety with do's, don'ts and lots of technical info & testing results.
    Cheers. Russ

    I'm already horizontal Russ, will you be showing the screen rotated?

    That's cool, yep NV whizz Bruce detached/rotated/reattached the screen on my Picatinny LRF, so the laser splash is horizontal and the display still upright.

    The red laser pointer's now on the left side, but should still be aligned with the splash.

    Cheers. Russ

    Nice video Russ, I think the horizontal splash is a far more accurate way to range anything.
    Regarding finding the button on unit to activate LRF, if it works ok for you thats great. But having used my 008 in dark and used buttons for various tasks, having to find the button to activate lrf does not appeal to me at all. Using a rat tail, to operate the lrf speeds the whole process up ten fold.. Display on screen would not bother me, just wish the NV008LRF had a rat tail..

    @PBaz Barrett Cheers.

    Aye I felt from day #1 a horizontal LRF splash would be better for shooting usage, Bruce disagreed but each to their own.

    Ten-fold? You exaggerate, you obviously don't want an 008LRF, so you don't have to make-up reasons.
    I'm disabled so naturally unsteady on my feet, but as you saw from the vid things didn't go all shaky whenever I start the LRF. Once activated you have two minutes to use it before it powers-off, so loads of time to range and shoot and as you can see it's very discrete on-screen, off to the side.

    I added a removeable/plug-in rat tail and plug-in external microphone to my original 008LRF wish-list to Ash at CRS.

    Cheers. Russ

    No mate, I'm not 'making up reasons' Russ, I would have bought one if it worked for me better, but like I said I would find it alot more of a fiddly job having to remove a hand from the ready to shoot posture to find a button on top of the unit.. I find it a whole lot easier having the button already under the finger of my right hand holding the fore grip (Im a lefty). I simply dont have to move my hands at all. Having to reach for the button every time you want to range something.. Not for me thanks, If it came with a rat tail I defo would have got one. also I use my LRF mounted on another 2 rifles. I actually do like the on screen display now on the LRF. Its just a shame it didnt incorporate a rat tail switch to operate LRF ..But like I say, if reaching for a button every time you want to range something dont bother you thats great Russ.. As long as your happy with it is all that counts :thumb:..

    I much prefer the clean simple view through the 008

    Separate LRF that you just flick on and off with your trigger hands thumb.

    Easy peasy

    I saw an awfully complicated reticle someone posted up a few days ago...

    Totally unnecessary

    Let’s be fair...most of us lot have been successfully hunting with airguns LONG before the advent of all this NV and LRF tech.... so it’s NOT needed in the real world

    There is one reticle on the 008 I'd like to see available on the 008LRF: the T-shaped one with numbered graduations. Though saying that I use the T-reticle on the 008LRF and really like it's floating/detached centre cross, so guess which two reticles I'd like to see combined (and with a FFP option too)?

    @Lev Levvin Aye not 'needed' - but it's a welcome bonus (for me at least). Time saved scaring everything off on my Permissions with a discrete lamp = is more pests in the bag and less time standing/walking = less back pain that helps me enjoy my hobby and help-out the Landowner.

    That plus the compact size and reduced weight of the PARDs a big plus in my book. :thumb:

    Another disabled shooter :thumb:

    Well done chap :D

    I too am disabled and still get out shooting at any opportunity when my knackered body allows it

    Free standing shots are pretty much out of the question even with support sticks, but I manage with prone or off bonnet of the landie :confused:
