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.

  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.

    Well yet again the Yukon lot have come through.
    Photon no.1.. lights went out, the brightness failed after 3 outings... didnt say what was wrong with it, but replaced it with a new one within a week of me taking it back to the shop...
    Photon no.2... first time I tried to zero it, could not get a group at all, so I put that down to me. 2nd time I tried to zero it still no group and on looking closer it appeared that the crosshairs, at the bottom point, had moved to the right. So I took it back to the shop 2 saturdays ago, today have picked up another one, brand new, Photon no.3.
    Photon no. 2 the actual screen inside the photon was loose and had dropped on one side.
    So 3rd time lucky.:) I hope.

    Lee.

    The first one I got was an excellent bit of kit I really couldnt miss had 2 good nights hunting and it was real easy to zero in the daytime, I really was impressed with it, then the lights went out. Am hoping the one I got today follows suit, but keeps going.

    Thats interesting I looked thro one at the show and it was just as good as a normal scope (this was with the external battery pack attached) does the battery pack increase the power of the onboard ir? I looked thro one in a gun shop 5 days ago and the picture was very poor just using the supplied 2 AA batteries.

    The gunshop need to be using battery with full power methinks. Theyre giving a false impression the units crap. Always detrimental to sales. Just my opinion, but if you want to sell, dont make it look bad.
    Then again, if you dont want a moanin git coming back wi your tarted up garbage...( thats for another time . ):rolleyes:

    I don't use the onboard ir with the Photon as I know someone who makes excellent ir torch conversions!
    The onboard batteries are likely to struggle if you expect them to run camera, screen and ir so if you need to do that then an external battery pack is probably the best option. Yukon do one as an option but I'm sure that others can be used, I think the manual does say what voltage is needed (12 volts?) so it should be simple enough to get a suitable one. As far as I remember someone on here does use an external pack so he could probably confirm what is needed.
