    Got 2 Discovery scopes, one with illumination, the other doesn't. The one with illumination has no problem at all. Got it on a Cricket and it is dead on. The one witthout illumination is on a Vulcan Tactic and it is dead on. Both are 6-24×50 FFP and beautiful fine crosshairs. I also have 2 Aztecs and have no problem saying that the glass on the Discoveries are better than on the Aztecs. Have a Hawke 8-32×56 on an Impact with probably the clearest glass I have ever seen on any scope but illumination bleeds over when I use it so I just don't use it … don't hunt at night much anymore 👀 … but the Hawke price was twice as much as the Discoveries. Both Discoveries came from Airgun Optics Plus and I asked Charlie to please check the scopes out first before shipping … he did. I'm a happy camper and I never buy anything airgun related from Amazon.

    Just my 2 cents

    I have also had very good service from a Omega product … the Super Charger. 

    It had a chipped piston rod in it when I first bought it, but since then it has been flawless except for requiring a new water pump. Has about 160 hours on it now and purring like a kitten.

    Don't know how you get by with a 18X scope. I'll be 70 in July and I pulled a 16X scope out the other day and could barely see the target, let alone the pellet holes. I moved up to a cheap 6-24×50 Discovery scope for about $300 and have no problem seeing my holes at 80 to 100 yards. I also have a 8-32×56 Hawke and it is one of the clearest scopes I have ever used … but for some strange reason I usually shoot the guns with cheap Discovery scopes on them … they just seem to get the job done pretty good and visibility is no longer a problem. It's a pain getting older, but it beats the alternative. 👴

    6-24×50 on all my scopes … leave it at one power and use the mill dots for the distances. I do have a 8-32×56 on an old Impact, but don't use it much.

    Don't know if it's just my Uragan, but it took quite a lot of shooting before the regulator settled down … about 4 tins of 25 grain JSBs. My Vulcan Tactic was the same, but when they get used to the firing cycle and the regulator settles in they became real tack drivers. The Tactic came shooting 895 to 905 fps and was great right out of the box. The Uragan came set for 955 to 965 right out of the box, that was too fast, pellets were spiraling out of control and had to turn the hammer spring down to around 900 to 910 fps to get it to add stability and lose the spirals.

    I got an $900 drone that I can't even find a place to fly it legally within 50 miles of the house. Give the Feds an inch and they will take a mile/

    I agree, this is pushing the envelope almost all the way off the table.

    I guess that the most trouble free guns out there are the Eastern European guns. I have a Vulcan2 Tactic in .25, a Uragan in .25 and a Cricket in .25. I do not have yet, but fully intend to get a Taipan Veteran sometime this year. The only troubles I have had with the Vulcans or the Cricket are related exclusively to the breech seals so if you don't mind playing around with putting in a new barrel oring once in awhile you'll probably be happy. An additional plus is that the Vulcans and Crickets are wonderfully accurate right out of the box. Yeah, I've got Marauders and an Impact and a Wildcat and a Edgun R5M … but mine (and I'm just talking about personal experience) do not come up to the Vulcans and the Cricket in terms of accuracy and the ability to take a lickin' and keep on tickin' ❕

    Someone gave you the wrong information. It is break barrel gas ram springer rifles that suffer from the dual recoil not the pcp guns. You will not have a problem putting your night force on a pcp, but I would not put it on a heavy recoiling springer. There is no recoil on a pcp gun. Hope this helps

    Emu, what kind of speed are you shooting at with the Uragan? Just been getting my Uragan straightened out after some initial troubles and I know the gun has potential as it dropped 30 shots in .75" at 65 yards running the 25 grain JSB at 885 to 898 fps. When I try to go higher, the pellet gets looses stability.

    Had a friend many years ago that only hunted with a single shot shotgun … but he mounted a bayonet on the muzzle so he was in great shape. Always had pictures in my mind of him running after a wounded squirrel stabbing in the ground and missing the squirrel over and over again. Well … he finally got the wiley squirrel with a heart / lung slash. He was putting the squirrel in his bag when he saw another critter and quickly loaded his other 12 gage shell … aimed … BLAM!!! The barrel blew up. Must have had 6 inches of mud in the barrel. I laughed till I cried … literally ROTFLMAO

    Got to agree with you … "what goes around comes around" or as Yeshua said, "What you sow, you shall reap"

    Silly me … and I thought the whole idea of this forum was to share experiences and knowledge, what works and what doesn't work, to lend a helping hand, to build people up and not tear them down, to offer encouragement and edification, make friends etc.

    Still trying to picture that TBF by Saxon 😂

    Yep, will be 70 in July. Played around with PBs for decades, reloading, casting, shooting NRA competitions and then got into truck driving at about 34 because I loved trucks and the money was pretty darn good … but there wasn't enough hours in the day to drive and shoot let alone reload so I hung them up for about 30 years. Retired at 65 and am having the time of my life with airguns which I started as soon as I retired. The good Lord has been good to me in so many ways blessing me beyond all measure. Looks like we do have quite a few "old timers" represented in this forum which is just one of many reasons why it goes so well on AGN. Thanks to Michael for such a good venue for all of us.

    This is one of those terms that you can take with a grain of salt because sometimes it is true, sometimes it is false, sometimes it depends upon the season or the work schedule, sometimes it fluctuates … it may be present on June but not in December … it may even depend upon your name or who you work for … of course the term is:
