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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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 briefly had a D141 which was dire to say the least. Went back to a lamp as the NV resolution couldn't tell a hedgehog from a cat or a rabbit at 15 yards. Doubtless other units are better than the D141. Bear in mind that gen1 requires lots of IR light to work well and has a finite lifespan on the tube

    You really have a major chip on that pathetic shoulder of yours don't you. I gave my opinion about a D141. Have you used one (preferably the same one I owned) or are you just blowing out your backside? Crawl back under your stone little man.

    Yes - my apologies to other forum users for having to put up with such crap. Unfortunately topcat, not for the first time, appears to have a problem with me expressing an opinion that differs from his even if he hasn't expressed his own opinion. If admin have a problem with my opinion that is one thing but I won't take such unprovoked and unnecessary comments from him without reply.

    you must of been unlucky :( i have a d140 and a pns4.6X52 and they are both good but it`s how you use them?
    i can detect out to about 80 yards but not define exactly what it is, but i can recognise exactly what it is at 50 yards.
    as i use mine to ambush warrens and i am static this is just fine.
    by the time they have got to thirty yards (by my marker sticks) i have no doubt about what i am shooting.

    i wish i could afford gen2 but i dont go out enough to justify all that expense:(

    Have used a D143 for 18 months, its good in barns when its pitch black with its built in IR lamp but for outside longer range bunnies it needs a lamp with an IR filter. Its only Gen 1 but it works v well.

    Yes colimb, I got mine by swapping some fishing tack, mines a old russian Gen 1 two, a DN140, sold by a company called Newcom, of witch is now no longer trading:(, I have only just started using it again after a 2 years, due to the infered bulb burning out, and was unable to get it fixed, so had to by a seperate infered torch, that I mount under the silencer, it's better at close range, up to a max of approx 30yds, but happy with it:up:

    i'd use a lamp because it's so much simpler than NV gear.

    use as little light as possible thats the trick so get a dimmer and a filter

    i know that nv's are an excellent bit of kit,
    but i found for the ratting i mainly do
    walking about,ranges from 5-15 yards,
    its easier with lamp.on the nv i had,i was forever changing focus.
    have been static with a mates nv,that was brill.
    again its each to their own.
