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.

    Would anyone happen to know at what range Hawke scopes are parallaxed for, specifically the new Panorama range. There doesn't seem to be any reference to this on the Deben website.
    Thanks Mickey.

    personally, i'd go with the ao variant as i see it as been more usable. if the non ao version is reset at, say 30 yards, then it will be usable at all air rifle ranges of between 10-50 yards (ish). wont be crystal clear throughout this range, but will definitely be ok. the ao version can be 'tweaked' to get the clarity perfect, thats why it has the edge over the non ao version (imo)

    +1. Looking at their web site, some of the same mag variants of the AO and non AO Panorama's are the same price and some are only a few £'s different.

    On their website that is one of the models that is the same price, so I would go for the AO version if that was me. http://www.hawkeoptics.co.uk/hawke-panorama-ev-riflescopes.html

    If you have a choice the ones which have an adjustable objective are better than those without and the easiest of the lot is the type with side focussing.

    good choice mickey, could you justify the extra £ to get the 4-12x one - the extra 3x mag may come in handy. and personally, i would go for the 1/2 mil dot ret.
    dont know where you plan to buy from, but my local rfd offers great prices and service (delivery for a scope would be approx £5).

    Steve, the reason I was buying the hawke from bar is because I'm getting the fx four stage pump from them, but even with post and package, the hawke is a great saving from your link. unfortunately, I'm out of the country until the end of march so I won't order just yet, just hope I don't miss out on a deal. thanks again for your help.
    Mickey.

    I have a couple of Non-AO scopes. One is set for 100yards PX and it's a pain at airgun ranges. The other is set for 35yards PX and works well. Both however are not comparable to my AO Panorama's adjustability. It's nice to be able to set the PX for 300yards and scope the far side of the field to see what's about with excellent sharpness, and then get an equally sharp image when you've stalked to 35yards......... or that's the theory anyway! Lol!
