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.

  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.

    Hi to all night vision d.i.y-ers,

    Firstly, yes i am a relative noob and apologise if I have missed a previously posted answer to my question.

    I've been looking into starting my own night vision setup and obviously taking note on what has been done before.

    There are 2 main methods i have seen;
    1. The sony handycam method
    2. The seperate camera, screen, and battery

    The main issue i have with trying one of these and potentially wasting what limited resources i have, and not having a mate who's got one, is basically the 'face space' around the cheek-piece to hold the rifle properly or the added weight.

    Anywho, cutting to the chase... has anyone seen these or even given them a go:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321125618771?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
    or
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201012305800?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

    i thought it looked like a possible good idea, ir camera with built in 1080P dvr, monitor, and battery all for less than 450g and on the first one the screen is where you would be looking as if down the normal scope.

    thoughts or comments please.

    If your thinking of using this, and keeping a normal head position, then I think that you will find it hard to focus on the screen when it is on the back of your scope.

    These cameras are fitted with a very wide angle lens which would be useless, you need a medium telephoto lens of about 16-25mm focal length. They also are likely to have very small sensors which are not very sensitive to ir light. If you put the screen at the rear of the scope it will only be about 2" from your normal eye position which will make it impossible to focus on it.
    If you look through some of the diy build units you will see that the screen is often mounted towards the front of the scope and can be viewed from various positions but a 'normal' shooting position is not required, you don't need to worry about parallax.
