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.

    Thank you.

    '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.

    Does any one own a SMK 1.5-4.5 x 28E IR rifle scope, if so how close will it focus, and what do you think of it. Thanks for any info, Bob.

    I have a Walther fixed mag,cheap one that will focus down to just a couple of yard at 3x mag so I imagine it should focus down to any suitable range at 3 - 4.5 mag.

    Thank's for the reply, I have a little Hawke scope , that is Ok for fairly close range, but not so good when the light starts to fade, so was wondering if any one had the SMK, and could tell me how close it will focus, as it gets a good review on Airgun TV, but not much info. Atb, Bob.

    Tbh I wouldn't take any notice of what Airgun TV says about any of the products they review...there isn't a bad thing said about anything.

    Also if the Hawke isn't living up to your expectations,I doubt the SMK will

    Don't get me wrong, had the Hawke for years, good little scope, but as my 62 yr old eyes are not what they used to be, was wondering about the SMK, as it has an illuminated ret. Getting older is a ball ache, Atb, Bob. PS it would be easy if the scope was stocked in a local shop, I could just go and try one.

    Also to add,with SMK optics,I found that the more features they have,the lower quality they are..for example,models that have IR could have sub standard glass,etc.

    It's just the little 3-7 x 20, had it years, do have other scopes, but that is my fav, it's small, lite and spot on, but not so good when the light starts to fade. Bob.

    Probably because of the small objective lense not letting much light in...I would try something above 44mm,perhaps a Hawke HD?
