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.

    Took my photon out this evening and took a couple of shots to make sure of zero..
    At 35 yards it wasnt even hitting a 17cm target!!
    I checked the x and y and they were what i had originally set them at, then noticed the batteries were down to quarter charge..
    Changed them for new aa’s and suddenly the scope found it’s zero perfectly again!!
    Is this a known issue for the yukon to lose zero on low batteries as i havent experienced it before??

    That's interesting.. I had a similar zero shift issue with my Photon; sent it back and was provided with a replacement - which makes me think it's a known issue. Hadn't considered that it might be a power issue though..

    I've not heard of this before. I like to fit fresh batteries before every session, just in case (in all my nv kit).

    Hmm - I missed a rat the other night and the batteries were low. I rechecked the zero the following day and it was fine - I had however recharged the batteries.

    I must look more closely at this. Thanks Rob.

    Im sure ive run the batteries to 25% before and not had this happen before so it mightve just been a glitch..
    My crosshairs are slightly down and left of center on the screen and it looked the same as usual.
    It was shooting at least 9 inches low at 35 yards..
    Gonna use it as backup as this bundle turned up this morning!!
