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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Oh too late, was going to say the tasco rangefinders are better than Hawke imo and cheaper. About £10 more than the linked one.
    Will be interesting to see how this performs (mainly accuracy and reliability)

    The button arrangement, the shape, and the posted specifications of ranges are highly reminiscent of my Hawke LRF 400? I wonder if it's a badge engineered version?

    I have the Hawke.... and it seems flawless to me? Although it's the only one I've used in recent years. If the Tasco is better..... I can't imagine how good it is as the Hawke does everything I ask of it? Not doubting your judgement Tom.... I'm no expert!

    Basically it looks the same machine as the Longridge PinPoint and the Hawke LRF 400/600, only the name has been changed to undercut the Hawke profit margins. The display seems to have been altered a bit though.

    I didn't even really use a working Hawke, bought 2 lrf 600 and one didn't even read at all accurate from out of the box. The replacement did the same after a few weeks/months of very light use. The tasco cost less than the 400 and hasn't done any wrong in well over year :) just one of those things

    Whereas my Longridge Pinpoint has been accurate out of the box (over 2 years ago) and is still working well!

    They are probably all made in the same factory just with different cases. The longridge ones seem to be exactly the same as the hawke except that they cost less are brighter colours and come on ranges greater than 600m. Anything you buy that is shooting oriented that can be used by other sports always seems to cost more in its shooting guise.

    Well mine came today i must say it was excellent service as i only ordered it 2 days ago...i have taken the silly route and measured out some distances with a tape measure up to 200 yards and then lazed it with this little machine and it turned out that the distances were spot on...for the price - the clarity of the optics is unbelievable and is on par with a bushnell that i used to own costing nearly £200.00..for airgun ranges this is spot on and brilliant value for money it also has "pinseeker" option which is a bonus.....// just my opinion...

    When will they build in "Rabbitseeker!"?
    You turn is on, scan across a field, any rabbits in the field start flashing red and read off their distance from you!

    I'd buy one of those in a blink!

    Ah, when I bought mine it was in the Henry Ford colour scheme on all I think!

    That one must be for hunting Arctic Hare!

    Nah I think this ones for hunting golf balls out to 800m. Still I'm sure it'll do the odd arctic hare no problem.
