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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Huntsman is a light small rifle, to keep the balance you need low turrets for lighter weight. Try the Hawke Panorama. Good glass, half mildot reticle, but only the 50mm has AO. Also look at Bushness for bright clear glass, or the Mamba light for excellent customer service.
    Most buy 3-9 or 4-12 mag. I prefer shooting at 12X and also shoot HFT and find a 4-16 x 42mm very useful in paper target practice as you can zoom to 16X to see exactly where pellet has hit.

    My Panorama 4-12x40 has AO. Came away from the MTC Viper 3-12x44 as I thought the reticle was a bit messy.

    I will vote for Hawke, I am a long term fan of Hawke optics, nice clear glass, superb in low light conditions! Not too pricey either!

    Got a Hawke Eclipse 3-12x50 AO (mill dot ir ) on my Huntsman. Impressed with it so far (hunting only) and well inside your budget:up:

    Is that with the half mil dot reticle, if so I stand corrected - I thought that AO was only with SR6 reticle in 4-12x50 and 4-12x40

    I've been meaning to ask the same question for a couple of weeks Nigegas, so interesting reading. I'm being swayed towards the mtc viper 4-16x 50 to do both hunting and a little dabble in hft and ft. But open to advice.
