  1. I have been into airsoft for just short of 4 years & I still use the same primary as I did when I started. I own a few spring shotty's for messing about with at home but I have stayed with the same set up simply because it works. I own a few different options on behalf of my son, but I'm just not a collector, I don't really have that impulse. Everyone is different & everyone takes different things from the hobby. It's what floats ya boat.
  2. I've only ever witnessed one person trying to use on during a woodland game. Young kid turned up with one, started showing it off to his mates, middle aged guy suddenly shouted in a very menacing tone "Dont shine that F*ckin thing at my face ya d*ck!" Marshals were on the kid in seconds and made him remove it. I don't think the lazer is an issue if it conforms to certain standards, I think its the reaction of other players that you may have to take into account. I know I would be less than chuffed if I got one pointed in my eyes & I'm a friendly kinda guy
  3. Yeh, never missed a beat once.
  4. Yeh with the OP question "Things that annoy you in Airsoft" I do have to say: People who play with grey areas of rules to get an advantage annoys me. I hear the same statement repeated all the time that "Airsoft is a game of honor" but if people find loop holes or grey areas then exploit them for your their own gains, that begs the rhetorical question "Are you acting with fairness & Integrity?" which really is the definition of Honor. I don't know maybe I'm rambling sh*te, but it does annoy me to see seasoned players getting one up on kids & Noobs by using stuff like grey areas to win a game.
  5. Saying that though I've been into Airsoft for about 4 years & I've never seen the inside of any of my guns.
  6. I use a Warrior Assault systems RICAS, you can often pick these up for about £60-£70 second hand, they have side panels & a cummerbund. I've had mine for about 3 years and I still love it, although in summer its not great for body heat, but its a trade off against molle space and body protection.
  7. Great for making movies and a bit of a mess about toy but its something I'd never consider buying. Open fire with that at some sites and you may as well paint your kit high vis yellow and strap balloons to you saying "I'm here! shoot me" . Because I know for a fact as soon as I heard someone using that I'd zero straight for the source of that noise. Its a cool idea but I don't think its practical.
  8. I'm definitely an exception to this rule. I have never given a flying bum cigar if I win or loose, I'm there to have fun only. I often take hit's when raindrops hit me lol. But it has to be said that I have seen some blatant non hit taking in my time that has just made me laugh in disbelief, to me its the equivalent of diving in football, play around in a grey area of the rules and your not really playing Airsoft anymore (Well your not doing it with a sense of honor anyway) your just playing army in the woods against other people who are following different rules. The only way my day can be less fun is by the dreaded over competitive players that sometimes come along, They are usually the cheats in my experience, rental noobs or gucci addicts alike they will simply ignore rules to win. Its a mindset I just find funny because I have seen grown men literally act like spoilt kids which becomes like comedy when they are dressed in combat gear.
  9. I know ow you feel I have several hobbies that I switch between depending on how I feel. I never attend Airsoft events in the summer because I'm always doing my music (Gigs, DJing, Bands, Jamming & festivals) I also go out on my mountain bike so I will often get into that for a while then I come back to Airsoft & its exciting again. Too much of one thing can become a routine & that's where the danger lies. Mix it up with something else & you cant go far wrong
  10. Yeh I agree with the above and others who posted here. I spent a year trying various different camo's and found that none of them really made a difference. I even tried to blend camo's to try and break up my shape etc......yeh I just found I was overthinking, the ranges that you fight at in a skirmish situation makes most camo pointless So after a year of watching you tube & avidly reading about camouflage designs I ended up spending on kit that now lives in a bin bag in the loft. I now wear OD Ubacs, OD Chest rig, DPM trousers, Black helmet and Face pro. I stripped back to cheap & easily replaceable kit I now find its price and comfort is more important.
  11. I swear by mesh goggles from Heroshark and a helmet. ears covered, I can scope my gun and it keeps me cool. I've taken a shotgun in the face from 2 feet away and didn't take any actual damage, (apart from damage to the under gusset region). I've tried pretty much every type of face and head combo but the above is what worked for me. As Albiscuit said its a very personal thing. Look at it this way, if you get it wrong you know about it after about 10 mins into your skirmish, you will be soaked in sweat and you will feel uncomfortable. I recommend you put your set up on and wear it around the house, try to do some basic stuff while wearing it, if there is the slightest niggle like something rubbing on your skin, you instantly overheat or similar this will be 10 times worse during a game when your struggling with straps, awkwardly pulling on stuff or trying to clear fogged lenses etc while people are shooting at you. I've found this out the hard way loads of times
  12. I'm about to do just that with my new MICH 2000 its the first thing on my shopping list
  13. I literally only used z1 for the marketplace. my work pc wouldn't let me go anywhere near it for months before it went away. shame as I got some good deals off there but forums sometimes die its just how it is.
  14. Having experience with the Scottish police the term heavy handed comes to mind. I once went to a music festival in Scotland & when I arrived all I can say is the scene will never be leave me. There was people having their cars literally ripped apart in random spot checks and camper vans with its entire contents (clothes, camping gear and food) emptied in a large pile on the muddy floor with sniffer dogs walking over it, children crying their eyes out because they were so roughly treat by the officers attending. I know some people take drugs at these events but they were targeting young families with kids. The whole event was heavily policed to the point where everyone felt like they were doing something wrong. I've never been to an event so lacking in atmosphere in my life, they made the festival the worst I've ever been to. As the weekend went on I opened conversation with an officer just to be friendly as I was being patted down for the 5th time that day (It was about 1pm on the Saturday afternoon) and he just stared straight through me and looked at one of the other officers and laughed like I wasn't even there. It got so bad, the group of 20 of us that made the journey up from Yorkshire made the decision to leave early and give it up as a bad job. They ruined what could have been a great party. I love Scotland its a great country & I have some good mates who live there but I'd never go back for any kind of event. the Police are very unfriendly and in my experience nasty pieces of work. So I'm not really surprised by reading this.
