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.

    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.

    Well done mate....:up: They take a little getting used to, I knocked mine up back in April and have used it 2-3 times a week since. Range finding can be an issue so I'd advise shooting from set places for a while where you know your distance to an object or two. I couldn't do without mine now and find myself extending each evening session to around midnight with it. Great results too, plus I see a lot of nocturnal wildlife. I've had badgers walk up to under 10 yards, an owl land on a fence post for a few minutes under 20 yards away and see plenty of mice scurrying about.....:up:

    Hi Render, had an old laser light mount so just cut the base to bolt onto the mount. The base and arm are all plastic.But will be changing the mount at some time for quick release weaver type. View attachment 103044 View attachment 103045

    I found the biggest necessity when using my NV was to change my 6-24x50 scope to a 3-9x40 one. You take being able to see a panoramic view when out in daylight for granted, but when only looking at a small screen showing your scope view, the lower the scope magnification the better for a wider field of view. I found I was waving my gun left and right all the time to scan an area when my lower mag limit was only x6. Now I wait for some bright eyes to hop out then up the torch brightness from low to medium power and the scope mag from x3 to x6-7 for an accurate shot....:up:

    Here is the quick release screen bracket that I made, it consists of a cycle torch quick release clamp, a piece of threaded rod, and few nuts and a small nylon ball from a hungry hippos game. The ball needs to be made smaller from 15mm to 12mm diameter. I drill a hole in the ball, screw the threaded rod into it and then attach it to a cordless drill and use sand paper and a file to take the material off.

    The bracket is available to fit a 25mm or 30mm scope tube and the extra segment can also be purchased separately to enlarge the former.
