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.

    'Behaviour

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.

    Anyone tried mounting a Photon NV on a semi auto? Would it shake it to bits?

    Very likely, it's not something I would want to try. It's a fairly rugged unit but the recoil of a semi auto shotgun is fairly savage. You could try asking the importers, I believe that would be Thomas Jacks.

    Thanks Terry, I'm using one of those Franci inertia semi's and the recoil is very light...However I'll take you advice and give them a call.

    The manufactures claim they can be used on weapons with a muzzle energy of up to 3600 Ftlbs.
    So In theory you should be ok if using a shell of up to around 40g.
    But if using a large foxing load it would be at nearly 5000 Ftlbs so over their rated use.
    But as terry says ring them to be sure.
    Cheers Andy

    I would be a bit concerned about the viewing screen which seems like the weakest part of the system. As the semi auto has moving parts hammering backwards and then forwards it might well be a bit more damaging than one with a fixed action. Hopefully the importers will have a definitive answer.

    I just spoke with a guy at T.J's and he said I was the second person to ask that question today after previously never been asked.

    Anyhow he reckons it will be okay, so I'll be giving it a try soon. The good thing is hopefully I can drop it quickly off my Rimfires picatinny rail straight onto the shotguns picatinny and not need to zero it for the shotgun at such close range. It'll be interesting to see if I need to re zero it back on the Rimfire afterwards though?

    No, that's not the plan. I've noticed quite a few rats moving along the hedgerows near the barns. I though it might be easier than trying to pick them off between the twigs with an airgun...You know just blast them out!! :)
