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.

    Thank you.

  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.

MTC Rapier 2 range finder

    Just got an MTC 2 range finder, I am not overcome with it as it is very hold sensitive and hard work if you wear glasses. Compared to my Hawke 600 the plus and minus points are

    PLUSES MTC slightly smaller than Hawke, Lanyard long enough to comfortably wear around neck, waterproof,reads in decimal points ie 27.2, 28.5 etc of a yard and of course illuminated read out.
    MINUSES difficult to hold, as a result tends to suffer from shake which effects the readings. If you dont look exactly thro the centre you get double vision on the read out (this is wearing glasses). Buttons difficult to press due to waterproof seals.

    By comparison the hawke fits your hand perfectly and is much less fussy to operate, and in daylight the read out is beautifully clear.

    I was going to sell the hawke but for daylight use the Hawke is much better overall.

    I bought the MTC to use in conjunction with my Night Vision NS50 as estimating range is nigh on impossible with out some feature such as a bush or dry stone wall as a guide. The MTC will come in handy if its possible to vaguely see a feature to range and so get a point of reference for the shot. If its totaly pitch black then no joy. I will update you after i have used it more.

    Tried it again last night best to use the MTC with power off in low light conditions first and find your target then holding on target press power then press power again and hold until reading is obtained. You need to be very steady as as soon as the display lights up it dazzels the image out so you are then lazing into darkness. You need to be resting on something stable to be effective (this is in very low light) for gloomy buildings it should be fine such as ranging pidgeons in large barns etc.

    UPDATE Info from Elliot the brightness can be adjusted by pressing both MODE and POWER buttons together until SE appears at the top of the display. then repeated pressing of the mode button reduces the brightness adjust as required. press MODE and POWER together till AF appears and let the unit turn off to save the setting.Its now MUCH better for low light conditions.:)

    I too have the mk 2, find the buttons sit lower to the case, making them hard to press with gloves on. Find myself using my "boys" Guntuff for daywork, easier to read
