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.

    A friend asked me if I had a scope going today, he's looking for a mamba lite SCB reticle but its not one I've got.
    as there dont seem to be too many going, any recomendations on alternatives? He wants an SCB definitely, and needs to be a fairly lightweight scope, at least 10 or 12x mag, and MUST be a reasonably fine reticle. at the moment he's using a Discovery, and doesnt get on with it. I've been having a think, but bar the connect, not a lot comes to mind. Any ideas?

    I’ve got the MTC Viper Connect which I’m very happy with. I like the almost zero eye relief and the field of view is really good. Max 12x magnification is about right for me and the reticle works for my style of shooting.

    Everyone who shoots my gun comments on how easy it is to use the scope as the first thing everyone does if they have never used a scope is to put their eye too close. On this scope that’s the norm.

    It won’t suit everyone but I have been more than happy.

    The Airmax Compact scopes have a fairly fine reticle and there's usually a 3-12x40 in the sales section. It is 30mm so will be heavier than a 25mm-tubed scope but hardly objectionable.

    My Tac Vector Veyron 4-16 is very clear with a fine recticle.

    Had wondered about the fixed 10x Tac Vectors.

    Passed these on, and he's having a good old think- tends to go through options calmly and rationally, weighing up the pros and cons, and then goes off to buy his decision. Usually works but he has been known to get distracted :)

    Still my favourite scope. I have 3 of them on my match rifles. I keep looking at others but so far haven't found anything that offers more. I would like them even more with IR & low turrets but you can't have everything!
