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.

  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 think I Look at resetting the software to standard 008... I don’t need multi zero...

    I’d originally planned to swap the 008 to different guns but don’t do that now I’m using the 007

    How windy was it Lev? Once saw .22 hornet bullets taken way off by a relatively light wind due to direction and the way the field contours were. It was a ploughed field and relatively dry so we were able to spot fall of shot.

    Got to be sensible though at present..

    really have to remember I can’t just go bang off a heap of rounds zeroing and resetting stuff and then just bimble off to buy more...

    It may be months before I can restock

    I’m not intending selling off the 008 yet... sorry monkey boy!

    it worked fine aboard my S410... so there has to be a logical reason to this.

    No... I don’t drink alcohol and I don’t wear glasses normally :laff:

    In that case I would try and re-create the shot(s) with a target in the daylight as that should give you a clue then. Can you use a pard 008 in the daylight? I only have a Yukon which is ok in the daylight but it is on a dedicated rifle as I prefer the simplicity

    I’m probably going to reload the standard 008 software...
    I have no need for LRF features, I don’t need more than one zero and use the same reticle I used originally

    I get a bit mixed up with it because I keep turning on the non existent LRF

    Yes I can use it in daylight, but I’ve removed it from the rifle now.

    I’ll be zeroing a 4-16x50 endurance on it today using minimal rounds.

    I know that once that’s set it has no electronics to create havoc

    I’ll play with the 008 again in the future when ammo isn’t an issue

    I took a ride out to the shoot spot on the quad with my Nikon range finder just now.

    startled a lapwing in the process

    easy to follow last nights route by the flattened grass

    parked up on exactly the same place where last nights tyre tracks ended...

    Pinged the hedgerow where bunnies were

    62 yards exactly

    ....pard 008 update...

    I wasn’t happy about having to relegate the 008 to the parts-box because it was behaving poorly... image was terrible... recording not great... zero moving randomly was the last straw

    I messed about with it tonight as I couldn’t sleep... and re-loaded a new copy of the software download into it... version 1.25 or summat

    the improvement was instant and screamingly obvious... image crystal clear and not grainy at all... everything back to default...

    So I’m giving it a second chance... I’ll zero it later today and give it a go in the fields in the night.

    fingers crossed because the rig is featherweight with the 008 aboard... which is exactly what I need

    Just spent an hour altering the CRS LRF so it fits on the left of the 008...
    With it on the right hand side the bolt of the action on the CZ 455 can’t cycle

    hits the bottom of the LRF before it releases

    got it sorted now...
    bolt works fine...
    Can reach the on/off button normally...
    looks good...

    Had to loosen the focus ring collar and move it around a little... the raised part was hidden by the LRF so now it’s on the right so I can finger tip focus easily with right hand
