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.

  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.

    I went with the wtc 1.5-5x20 on a low sportsmatch mount then fitted and adjustable but pad.

    Go with a low mount which takes a 32mm objective max.

    My mate has a 4x32 on his with low mounts. Perfect for the range he shoots over.

    Then a 4x32 will be perfect, especially if its a quality one. What's your budget?

    All depends on budget. I've used an AGS 4X32 and a Nikko Stirling Mount Master 4x 32 in the past and they were ok and both less than £40. I've recently replaced my Hawke with a Vortex 2-7x35 and it is superb and blows all the other scopes I've used out of the water. It was £130 ish. Nikon do a couple of compact Pro Staffs for about the same money.

    only scope for my eyes is the 10x44 viper (MTC) ... unless variable is totally required .... love the rets , 155 new , but every so often you see a second hand for 80 to a ton .... to be honest ive got one one each of my guns , but could easily be tempted to buy a third on the cheap ... just in case
