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.

    Hiya fellas,

    I have a laser on top of my Hawke nite eye digital which is held up vertically by a bracket and I was just wondering what the best way to zero it is?

    I have been told that it can be quite useful for close range shooting such as ratting,but I am struggling getting it in line with my scope

    Any advice will be welcome


    Thanks

    Hi
    I have tried a couple
    spent an afternoon trying to get one lined up to be honest it was crap adjust the up down and it would also move off to one side but quite randomly ... Shame as would be great if you could get one that does actually adjust properly - I have now tried two and given up .... Hope you have some better luck
    cheers

    Forget it.. It'll only be accurate to one range... Lasers are a bit of a gimmick.

    I had three lasers on various ratting guns and found them very effective at fast acquisition,they can be a pain to set up but persivere and you can do it.the lasers I have set up had three grub screws one for locking the settings and the other two for moving the laser dot on horizontal and vertical plane.firstly you may need to rotate the actual laser in its clamp to get the dot closest to your aim point as it does alter where the dot is,then adjust the two planes.if you run out of adjustment you need to turn the laser in its clamp again.it's sometimes a pain to do but normally really easy,I normally place it in a gun rest and use a huge piece of cardboard.

    Also you can use a laser to range find if you set it up correctly and practice your ranges with it.

    Give me a shout if you dont know how and i will post a more detailed post.

    If it's mounted above your scope it's probably too high to use for aiming at close range rats and I'm not sure that rats would stand around while you ppointed a laser at them, particulalry for head shots. They can be used for rangefinding when mounted fairly high above the scope but do need a good mount to keep them properly zeroed.
    Unfortunately most of the lasers aren't very well made and can be difficult to zero, the ones with scope-like turrets tend to be better than those with tiny cap head screws for adjustment.

    Careful you don't point the laser in the rats eye, you might blind it.

    :cool:
