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.

  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.

    Anyone use this with an nv add on ?

    I'm looking for a scope for close range ratting so any other suggestions of a scope with a minimum parallax as short as possible will be much appreciated

    i used the bugbuster 3-9x32 with a Pard 007 on my Air Aarms tdr , was pretty good for short range rats , i did find the reticle a bit thick but soon got used to it.

    I have the 12mm 007 and the pard magnifies the scope image making the reticle thicker.

    The nvs30 does the opposite decreasing the scope image to fit on a small screen so making the reticle thinner.

    At the moment I have ffp scopes which are fine with the pard but the rets are to thin at low mags for the nvs30

    I use a 2x7x32 Hawke airmax with the Pard. It has a fine etched reticle so doesn’t suffer as much. The Bugbuster is wire I believe. The Hawke is AO rather than SF but have a small coaster on the AO so don’t need to put my hand on it so no whiteout from the IR. Plus the FOV is great on the 2x7 mag. Perfect for what I want it for which are ratting between 10 and 25 yards.

    A reticle being a little on the thick side isn't a problem as the nvs30 reduces it. The close parallax is my main aim.

    I bought mine for use on my 007, nice scope and well made, but I can't get away with the pard, the reticle is just too thick while using it on the 007, I took it off and put a small Airmax on, it's been in its box ever since.

    Nice scope rings and still on me gun. :thumb:

    Thanks Wolfiemac. thats the kind of info I need. I want a little close range sight for NV but not the 007.

    I brought a NVS30 which reduces the image to fit on a small screen so a slightly thicker ret will be ideal.
