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.

    I was forced into buying a Hawke Reflex 4-12X50, when I strongly desired a Hawke SR. I mean why pay £80 on something medioca, when pay £130 on something you will keep, & love for years. It just really pees me off.
    & what made the situation worse was in the field a few weeks later. I zeroed my 410 into around 35yds, & somehow hit a Carlsberg bottle cap at that distance.
    Later on, on my acquired land, I stepped over a gate, & in that scrubby field i saw a distant brown object. I scoped onto it & it was a rabbit, at around 100yds away. I stalked & crawled through this field until I was, in my mind, around 30yds away. After slight wait, it stood straight & head was the most obvious target ever to be seen. I aimed for the bulk of it's head & no way I could miss.
    I shot, & it jolted, then stood up again. I shot again, another miss, then it legged it for the hedge. FOR GODS SAKE!!!
    Somehow, I must have misinterpreted the distance, causing both shots to race above its head. Apparently, with an SR, you could have measured the bunnie's ears & find a pinpoint range, then over/under aimed on the MAPs, to get the perfect kill. Is this true?:confused:
    I'll end up getting an SR pretty soon, it's just a but silly me buying the wrong one in the first place.
    Thanks...

    SR's are absolutely brilliant. You just have to get used to a different aiming technique, once you get that dialled in, they're unbeatable.

    A bargain in my opinion, and I paid £170 for mine!! (NiteEye SR12)

    i have the SR6 and its awsome, i use 6x mag for hunting normally so i was used to the magnification.
    i also use 16 grain pellets which the scope is desined for and the aim points are spot on:D

    with milldots i remember using the spot in between the dots:rolleyes:

    not with this:D

    the range finder, now that works by using 4 brackets.

    say now a rabbit is 30 yds away, on 6x mag it will fit into one of the brackets (A,B,C,D)

    say now its 10yds away its ears may fit into slot d
    20yds the 3" ears may ne in slot C and so on.

    the tricky bit is keeping the scope still enough to put its ears in the scope to measure the distance.

    personally i use the PX to get the range then the brackets to confirm it

    if im static i'll have a laser rangefinder:cool:

    get the SR ones they rock:D
    if you are used to 6x then get the SR6
    but if you are used to hight mag (12x) then get SR12

    you have to use them at those magnifications as it where the aim points are set too.

    also download the BRC.

    it will show you the aim point if you go FAC or tune the power down, also scope height and pellet shape is taken into consideration:up:
