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.

    Having found the rifle I wanted I now would like to get a good scope to go with it. Last time I owned an air rifle was 25 years ago and scopes seem to have moved on from the 4x20 and 4x32 of days of old. I got a budget of around £150 but haven't got a clue whats good and whats not so any help would be appreciated

    That depends what you intend to use it for. Hunting/HFT, FT?
    Also what are your requirements - low light ability, AO (parallax adjustable), IR (Illuminated reticle), is weight a concern etc.

    More details will help mate :)

    What sort of shooting are you going to be doing I ask as different scopes are better siuted to different applications than some others,also what rifle will you be mounting it on.

    Will be mostly used for lamping rabbits and will be mounted on a Falcon FN19 Light Hunter
    I understand what AO and IR are but the reason I asked the question is I'm not sure if they are gimmicks or aids when it comes to picking a scope from the hundreds available also I'm not sure what are and what aren't good value when it comes to brands, don't want to pay £150 just for a name if I can get just as good a scope from a lesser known brand for less

    I am a big fan of Bushnell especially the older bushnell legends, I think the 5-15x40 ao legend is hard to beat as an all round scope and to get optics as good you would need to pay a lot more- accasionaly they come up on ebay and this forum prices are about £100-£130 for a mint second hand one.

    Good shout, I would also look at the Nikon Prostaff range - excellent scopes (that's why I have one :p). You can get the 3-9x40 prostaff for £145 brand new online.
