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 have one which i am currently using for target shooting and HFT. It has a brilliant field of view and so for hunting it should be excellent. Also the depth of field is really brilliant so you very rarely have to re-focus at airgun ranges.

    It's no good on a recoiling rifle though because you have to rest your eye right up against the scope.
    Ouch!

    Hi Spewy

    The Viper Connect seems to be one of the trendy scopes at the moment & while I agree they look the part and im sure they do the job well enough, they are expensive for what they are.
    Especially when you look at what else you can get for your hard earned.

    Have a look at the Nikon Prostaff range before you make your mind up.
    I use the Prostaff 3-9 x 50 and cant champion it enough.
    Lightweight, razor sharp image & **** hot in low light.

    Im looking for a 2nd rifle at the moment & Nikon glass will be going on that aswell.

    Cheers
    J

    I was sceptical about the viper connect before I bought one but after reading reviews etc I took a stab at it and I must say it's an excellent scope, the cross hairs are very fine and can get lost in a dark background but they do have a very accessible on button for illuminated ret, for me then short eye relief is brilliant (although you have to explain to people why your eye is right up to the scope) but it ensures you have your eye in the right place whatever the shot, the look of the scope is a bit marmite but I liked it, it feels like quality throughout, has a huge field of view and a big plus point for me on my hw100 is that it brings the weight over the pistol grip making the rifle feel a lot lighter which is nice on a PCP where you don't have to worry about recoil. Primarily a hunting scope people have had huge success with it in HFT! And finally I hear that the customer service is second to none (although I've not tried it), I'd recommend the set back scope mount as opposed to the two normal scope mount set up. Expensive some might say but you can also pay a lot more for a lot less scope. My opinion is a great little compact scope with many applications.

    I must admit, I'm thinking of ditching my Airmax 30sf for one. A guy at our club has one and when I looked through it I couldn't believe the depth of field, stunning. The perfect tool for tracking squizzers :)

    Had one with the AMD ret, liked the fact that with such short eye relief, my shooting improved because my cheek positioning was constant. The ret wasted on .177 IMO, too many aim points
