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.

    Hi I’ve recently bought a pard nv008 after having the nv007 for a while and being very impressed. I’ve initially zeroed at 16y for around the yard(rats). But wondered as their are 5 settings possible should I set up different distances for each reducing the need to think to much about any holdover/under between 8-40 yards looking at chair gun I think I could have all my used distances completely covered by less than a milldot or would this just be something Only I would do? (Just thought it might be good). Anyone else done anything similar? Cheers.

    Sorry to say that pard 008 are not good ratting scopes at all.

    their base mag of x6 is far too high for close range ratting, and the field of view is way too narrow for close range work

    I have 008 and 007, the 008 comes into its own on my .17hmr for rabbits out to 150 yards.

    for rats I use 007 teamed with a low mag scope... 3-15x44 sf frontier
    This is deadly on rats, focus down to 5 yards with a very wide field of view

    I shoot rats with the 008 on my fx wildcat and yes the fov is not the best but then I switch it over to the hmr and its brill, I tried a 007 on my bushnell 4.5 x14 x44 but with it being a 16mm there was to much magnification so sold the 007, but I am thinking of getting another in the 12mm version just not going to tell the wife :facepalm: . Lev you have just made my mined up for me :up:

    I have set up just a couple of distances one at 25yards for general use around cow sheds and 40yards for rabbits in the field. I didn’t intend to cycle through abcde I just thought I could set up for different locations I shoot tailoring to areas not try scrolling menu’s

    Having two zero points makes sense.

    but as said as long as you set it to your location and leave it alone thereafter all will be good.

    for the 008 to be useful as a ratting tool you need to stay at least 20 yards back from shooting zone... you can’t get up close and personal with the 008 because of the high mag and small field of view

    I zero at 25 yards for ratting and that works very well from 5 yards out to 30+

    you do still need to learn your holdovers at these ranges

    At the distances around the yard there’s nothing over/under a mill-dot out unless there running around my feet. :rolleyes:
