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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:


    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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 have both, well, actually I have 3 Pard's, 2x 007's and a 008LRF, all are brilliant units, tough enough for the odd clumsy incident, battery life is good and spare 18650's are chearer than chips, memory cards are cheap, spare adaptor rings are cheap ( i have 8, all fitted to day scopes ready to attach the 007's) the only scope I have that doesn't have one fitted is a Sightron on my .223, I have a ward 800 for that;) loads clearer but isnt as quick to set-up, is bigger, does not have built in illuminator but will work out to 350yards for foxing. not that the pard wont, its just not quite as good at range.
    I have one of the 007's on a Hawke Airmax for ratting on my .22 compact cylcone, that is all kept together as a kit so it's ready to go at all times, my other is a back-up in case of thermal failure or as a spotter. the 008 gets swapped around between my .17HMR and .22 rimmy's and my Mk2 crown fac.
    these get less use during the coming dark months as I find the thermal scopes are used more. I rarely get out before dark so they make more sense to me.
    This is when it starts getting expensive. Accolade XQ LRF, Trail 2 XQ50 LRF, Thermion XQ38 and just lately a Thermion XP50.... so :rolleyes: yeah, lots of money ties up in shooting gear.

    of it all, If I only had to have one set-up it would have to be a... NV007 and a low power AO or SF scope. It has got to be the best bang for buck for the money. keep it on 2x or 3x mag and have a night out on the rats..

    I use 008plrf its the only thing I use day/night linked with a thermal spotter, It is hard to get much better combo (would like to to have auto impact range adjust though)

    I have just got a 008lrf with the latest screen i hate the gold fish bowl effect. However it does the daytime to night transformation which is why i bought it. You can input settings for different rifles but i am pretty sure that a degree of tweaking zero will still be needed after transferring to another rifle. A 007 is being considered but i need to try one first!

    I prefer the 007 with my scope instead of my 008 which isn't on a gun at the moment and I'll probably move it on, found I like glass for summer use then clip on the 007 for night, so I took off the 008 and after not using it for months I don't miss it tbh.

    I use a pard nvoo8p on my Vulcan 2 fantastic piece of kit for vermin, one unit for all conditions and totally weather resistant just so nice to go out in the evening and keep shooting when dark ir mode is brilliant so clear and great detail in pitch black, battery last for ages +I take a spare one in case but never needed it yet, also I like the gyroscope but don't see the point in the compass personally as I normally know what direction I am heading on my permissions lol, but honestly well worth the £650.00 price tab considering a thermal imaging unit would be so much more for the night work.
    the menu system is easy to navigate I didn't bother with the lrf model for a extra £150 + as I shoot a sub 12 rifle mainly squirrels and rabbits so usually less than 40 yds but if I was shooting with a powder burner for larger quarry then would definitely have that option, brilliant piece of kit.
