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 would have thought you will be able to use a t20 or t38 ( eBay ) or one of Terry's ir torches ( terry1001 on here) for that range so long as your scope is reasonably suited not to high mag ect and your camera is good.
    Cheers Andy

    How do you want to use it for night fishing? The ir light is invisible and objects illuminated with ir can only be viewed with an ir sensitive camera. If you want a good torch for use in the dark you might be better off with white light or red if you don't want to cause too much disturbance. If you do want to be totally covert then you'd probably be better off using some form of spotter rather than the scope add on, so the best choice depends entirely upon what you want to do.

    the fishing application would be for spotting moving fish at night when you can hear them moving but also to save putting lights on at the side of the lake and spooking the fish too and have been looking at the t38

    Well I don't know how effective night vision with ir would be at spotting fish movement and I've no idea whether fish can see ir or red light. My understanding is that in some areas the fishermen use lights to attract the fish to the surface probably using fires or naked flames so white light must register with them.
    The T38 is a model name of a torch and is named after the 38mm diameter of the lens, it was previously sold as the T20. I sell a modification of a different type of torch which has the same size lens and identical performance, the main difference being the way that focussing is carried out. The main influence on performance is the led fitted and most of the builders use the same leds and drivers for their modifications although torches bought direct from the Far East may or may not have quality leds fitted - in general terms they greatly exaggerate the performance of their products.

    I agree with Terry with the regards to the cheap IR exported in. I bought a T50 and every time you tried to widen or narrow the beam the pill would go off center. On closer inspection the pill has been glued on the holder off center. Once it is central you have to leave it alone. Buying one of Terry's means easy help with problems and a better built unit.
