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'm toying with the idea of a 008. Looked at loads of Youtube vids etc. but there's a question that I can't seem to find an answer to, so here's the question for those that have a 008.

    When saving the first zero (e.g. 25 yards), it saves as 'A', I get that. But what happens if another zero is saved (e.g. 40 yards) is saved? Does the 2nd zero take over as 'A' or is it automatically saved as 'B'?

    I can't seem to find an answer to this, so I thought I'd ask you guys.

    Thanks as usual for any answers given.

    If I recall you select the file position before setting the zero , so something like choose “A” , zero and save , then choose “B” , zero and save and so on .. so it shouldn’t over write unless you want it to .

    The early NV008's can only store one zero so that's one thing to be aware of.

    Newer models, or earlier ones with firmware updates, can store up to 5 reticle combinations. As Jimmy says, within the reticle adjustment screen it displays the zero slot as A, B, C, D or E, which you can cycle through, and then go on to change the co-orfinates, reticle, and reticle colour (red or yellow) for that slot before saving. Whilst actually shooting, the Pard doesn't display the zero slot that's selected, so unless you use different reticles/colours for each slot, it's quite easy to forget which one you're using :facepalm:

    That's what I'm worried about. Setting up, let's say, 2 red reticles or 3 yellow ones but forgetting which is which for what distance. I suppose I could write them down then stick it to the range finder. :shrug:

    The earliest NV008s can save up to 5 different profiles, where a profile consists of the X: value, y: value, reticle style and reticle colour.
    Later NV008 can save more than that - maybe 10?
    Changing from one profile to another involves opening the main menu, then selecting the reticle position option, and then selecting which profile you want, then long pressing the OK button to load that profile and close the menu.
    Frankly, you'd be far quicker simply using the reticle with the hash marks and learning the holdovers for different ranges.
    If you've just shot a rabbit at 25 yards and another appears at 40 yards there's a good chance that by the time you change to the 40 yard profile, the bunny will have gone.
    If you know the holdover for 40 yards, just aim and shoot.

    Cheers

    Cheers Bruce,

    I'm slowly coming to that conclusion. At the moment, I'm using a 007 (an original one), but thought the profile saving of the 008 would be a better option. Looks like me sending more lead down the range, which I suppose is always a good thing. The scope I have is half mil-dot so that should make things a little easier.
