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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Any benefit from fitting an external IR torch to the Pard 007 other than saving the battery?

    Onboard IR seems good but would decent additional IR be better?

    Thanks

    Gives Far better brighter view in my opinion and range if required
    Combination of scope make - pard - external ir choice give very different results
    Adjustable bezel/beam and dimmer tail switch is definitely recommended if your going down this route

    ir frequency or light spectrum is also worth considering depending on your quarry/requirements

    T20 black sun is a good allrounder this has three brightness settings

    Massive benefit for longer ranges if your foxing or long-range rabbits/hares, it turns the 007 into something of a decent tool, I use a Pbir Lazer. I never use the Pbir ratting, no need, just adds weight, always carry a couple of spare batteries if you're on a long session with the Pard.

    If running 7/8 hours without the ir
    And a hour with should say it all, ;)
    Quotes above too, see more,
    But it will look 300/400yds if u took the filter out of the ir on the pard, but it's still goes flat the same, ;) al

    Thanks for that, what causes that black ring round the outside of the view? Is that IR related or just the inside of the scope that can only be removed by zooming in with the Pard then it’s too higher mag :mad:

    What’s the string for? Do you hang it up somewhere fixed when ambushing or shooting in a barn somewhere?

    :eek: Haha hardly a torch tart just get out shooting a lot
    as previously mentioned not every ir torch brand available uses the same unit
    you get very different results from scope to scope as you should know
    It’s a matter of finding the right combination that works for you at the distances you require
    I use to trial certain products quite some time ago now and was fortunate to be given some of those pictured for my efforts
    couldn’t justify purchasing all those I’m afraid :p

    Just a combined picture of LED touches and ir units
    Sometimes when were out on big open country or fell ground things need lightning up for the odd shot
    It’s an Old XSearcher unit string attached for safe keeping :thumb:
