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.

    I'm a terrible presenter. I have no idea why but as soon as the camera starts I become a mumbling idiot and 'so' 'err' and 'civilised' become my favourite words.

    Nice review! But the fence mate! Lol! I reckon more fences have been down this past few weeks than at any other time in history! Our back gates are a mess of props and reinforcement!

    The images look very good on the screen! NV side is obviously very good, the interesting aspect will be using the unit for daytime hunting. Perhaps tested best by stalking in the woods? That would be a severe test I reckon in comparison to camping for an ambush etc?

    Is it just me or does everyone get the 10th video suggestion down on the right a video about an Armadillo? That must mean Youtube is scanning the audio for keywords?

    That fence has been like that for a few weeks now but the wind never stopped blowing long enough to fix it. Currently I'm working on the kitchen and shower room so it will have to wait a little longer yet...

    Interesting about the armadillo with reference to the gun bag I spoke about, I didn't put it in as a meta tag. I might drop in some other key words in the next video to see if Google and YouTube read them.

    Well done mate I enjoyed your review. When are planning on going out in the field and doing a bit of hunting with it?

    Once I have had some practice on targets during the day (and night) I will get out hunting.

    I am currently setting up my own shooting range, some targets I have bought, some I have made. The key thing with the range is that it must be as easily used in the day time as at night. Packages have been arriving by post for the last month containing reflective, day glow and glow in the dark spray paints along with metal targets. Will put up a video of it when completed.

    I have a few Rabbits to shoot locally so they will be first then I want to experiment with the unit on a 22 rim fire shooting hares. Paradoxically the Pitch Black Hunter is approved for use on rim fire but not spring powered air rifles. I think this is nonsense and I intend to try it later. What I really like shooting is rats but have no rat problems right now.

    Well yes Spring guns put out a lot more Shock than 22 rimfire on firing and can bust scopes that are fine on Centre fire rifles as the Springer recoils both ways Hard and the reason you get Airgun rated Scopes .

    No I didn't know that!

    Thanks for letting me know, I did have a square bottomed one knocking around somewhere but I can't find it now.

    Have any exploded?

    Nicely presented. :up:
    Am thinking of getting the Pitch Black myself . I have seen a lot of positive reviews on it. - Also for £350 it looks very good value for a compact NV setup.
    Do you know if they are suitable for rim fire rifles?
    Steve.

    Yes, they are approved for rimfire rifle use. I agree with you about price, at the British Shooting Show I noticed the price of the nitesite nv50 had been reduced everywhere to £299. I took a look at the nitesites, which I like a lot, but decided the Pitch Black had by far the clearest screen and longest range for the price.
