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.

    Thank you.

  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 originally tried a Discovery VT-2 3-12x44 SFIR on medium height mounts and had to switch to high mounts which immediately improved the cheek weld.

    I later fitted a Hawke Sidewinder 30SF 4-16x50 with a Sportsmatch medium height one piece mount which is an excellent combination for me and would work equally well with a high mount.

    There's a couple of Connects in the sales section too if you want another one of those. Plus I have one I don't want any more and I don't think it's been out the house!

    Sometimes a last minute curve ball makes it all the more exciting. Seems to happen alot to me over the years with everything i buy and i feel better for it.

    Hope you enjoy it, what RFD you using? Im usualy a bradford stalker/ bagnall and kirkwood user, but affordable used stock hasnt been the best in either the last few times i have popped up.

    Looking back @Drake267 I reckon you may have made the right choice with the Wildcat.

    The Leshiy is very much a unique rifle and something you'd really need to be sure about before wedging out for.

    Loving my Wildcat at the minute, but it would never push my Leshiy out of the number 1 slot.

    My Wildcat is going to the club this morning. A nice quiet session for zeroing and plotting out on the 50 yard indoor range, hopefully in absolute peace and quiet.
    Hopefully it then gets a run out on the rat perm tonight.

    Well I know I'll def get a leshiy at some point. This little wildcat will do me for now. Seems nice with the connect on it. Though as yours, it's 75mm above the barrel.

    Yep.
    For ratting its an issue for sure as lots of shots are under 20 yards, well most really, so the shooting on rats will be a little less instinctive and a little more thoughtful.
    I'm going for a 35 yard zero this morning after a lot of thinking. That should see a nice PBR out to well past 40 and sensible aim points beyond on 5x mag with the airmax. It should do me for pretty much any quarry on the ground or up trees with not too much holdunder mid curve.
    It will all go down in my little book of numbers. If anyone finds that when I pop off, it will look like some sort of code :D

    I'll report back later. Setting off in a minute so I'll be back about 11.
