The 'What have you just bought' Thread

7839 posts in this topic

Mate, I burned my bridges with credit cards when i was @uni - my attitude was "If you're daft enough to lend it to me, i'll spend it... oh, you want it back? Yeah, sure, the thing is you didn't read the small print*".

 

Although... I have recently finally got around to spanking £300 on a new washer/dryer through an entirely new source of credit - thank you very.co.uk - which does give my monster overdraft a slight amount of wiggle room - but i dunno about a oner's worth...

If it's still going by the 21st, that'll be a different story :);)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*i. I don't give a flying f*ck.

ii. You cannot intimidate me with threats of court action A. I've been there before & B. but not limited to, I've worked in auctions so I know it'll cost you more to send the bailiffs in than you'll get for the stuff.

iii. I am not ashamed of being in debt.

iv. Even if (iii) were the case, it's not my fault that the economy is built on the idea that a debt is an asset and therefore he who has least actually has most, but not really. Obviously this will all come to a sticky end soon, so I'll have my slice of the emperor's new cake and spunk it however I see fit: just call it A. my bonus, B. my golden parachute, C. my birthday present.

v. With particular reference to (i), no seriously, I really don't give a flying f*ck.

errmmmm...wrong thread?

errmmmm...wrong thread?

nope, look at my previous post in this thread and it will all become clear.

I have started a separate thread on my loadout for the sten now. The partisan idea is becoming more and more appealing. The gear is so complicated and it seems that if I want to do some WW2 airsofting, I need to get it right. So in case anyone else decides that a sten looks cool, I thought it best to chronicle the hell I am having to go though so they can skip the hours of research :D

Just bought a tactical softshell jacket off eBay. Unfortunately doesn't say the make / brand but oh well. Got it for £29.20 which seems like a good deal given most are £45 - £60 new?

Looking to also bid on an OPTIMUS UK 3-9x40mm scope. It looks really good, it's the last one so hopefully I can get it at a good price. Only problem is lack of instruction manual and not a great box but says the scope itself is in great condition.

Mr_B that scope listing is some kind of bollocks - there are at least 2 that i've seen saying "last one!" for that scope from the same seller and the same thing with the 50mm objective lens ones also. Just be aware that they're not cheap because they're end of line stock, they're cheap b/c they were made in China cheaply - which doesn't mean they are shite by any means, but may, and that's only may, mean that the tube is not a dry nitrogen atmosphere (which prevents internal fogging) and/or that the mount ring clamps may not be robust enough to put the kind of torque on there that prevents loss of zero (but you can Loctite 'em apparently - personally I need to try this on some cheap mount rings of mine).

Having finally got my UKARA I've got myself 2 guns..

 

an ASG Ingram MAC10 for CQB fun and a Full Stock Franchi SAS 12 3-burst shotgun for something a bit alternative in the woods... Hopefully the G36 H&K rifle will be following hard on their tail!

After finally complaining about how much I hate hi-caps, I decide to buy some MAG midcaps. They feed brilliantly, they are very sturdy and they look great! Only issue is, is that they are a bit on the lightweight side and feel a bit weird. Oh well, no more winding :D

I have the mag 190 rnds and they are stupid heavy.

If you want your mid caps heavier, there is a fair bit of space inside 'em that you could put lead in - B&Q lead flashing, or better yet, get it from a scrap yard.

Oh, well mine only hold 130 rounds. Are yours metal? because I have the plastic ones

Sounds like a plan, my dad's sure to have some random shite usable in his van as weights

TRMR impact grenade. Far too shiny to throw, though!

 

Also some Chinese "O" style gloves for £7 inc postage. Bit of a gamble, but for £7, they're pretty darn good!

If you get a chance to do a review of this I'd be really interested in reading it, even if it's just brief. The speed of reloading those looks like something that would really appeal to me!

Not had the chance to properly play yet (i.e. test with a few blanks), but the principle is sound and you can do a really quick change:

 

Unscrew, load, re-screw, twist to arm, throw.

 

I'll see if I can get something up once I've had a play.

Yep, definately, be very interested in this as I'm pretty set on the OhShiBoom however, having looked at this on JD Airsoft, I really quite like the twist and arm feature and the 'under 10 second' reload feature....

So, I echo James thoughts, if you have time for a review, that would be gravy!
