    Can you tell what it is yet? A trip to B&Q and a bit of fettling to be done then... "Build it, they will come".

  8. New pew today 😁. Since using my lad's SSE18, I've wanted one for my ghillie rig, but I've decided to dual-purpose it for my cyberpunk CQB setup. The massive holo is a placeholder until my low-profile (red) red dot arrives, but I'm starting to get attached to it, whilst tactically sweeping my house over and over. The amplifier was primarily cosmetic but it definitely makes the pistol sound less anaemic. Also missing is a red flared mag well, as it was out of stock. She's ugly, but that's kind of the point. 😄 Once it's complete, the real project begins: Integral torch, using the foregrip cavity, and LED lighting in the rear carbine cavity... all for the cyberiness. 😄

  9. This reminds me of a chat myself and other marshals had about dumb responses to asking players what weight bb they're running at chrono, the best one being: Player steps up to chrono Marshal: "What weight?" Player: "Ummm" Player hefts RIF Player: "About 4 kg?"

    So it's getting there. Just need to find a way to replicate the correct paint type. And alter the bolt.

    Fogging and glasses

    In what seems to be a right of passage in the airsoft world, I have grown to hate with a passion the spectre of fogging. Being a little unfit, quite fat and therefore prone to producing vast quantities of heat and moisture, it has driven me to try and find my own solution much as I imagine many others have too. My somewhat unique difference is that I wear glasses as in ESS ICE ballistic glasses and not goggles as many others do, this has meant that all the solutions that I've seen are tailored to those and not glasses. I also don't run a helmet of any kind just a DPM bucket hat so I found myself even farther from convention. Many things got an audition, from the 50p antifog wipes in the shop at AP (not terrible but very short lasting) to buying a battery powered fish tank pump and some tubing (chinesium crap and failed badly). Now, many will no doubt recognise Novritsch as a marmite figure but I noticed he had the catchily named 'anti fog unit' available, this seemed to offfer an attachment that was usually placed on goggles and magnetically snapped into the tube allowing the hat to come off but the eye pro stays on. It was at that moment I had a bit of an A-TEAM moment, if this piece could be bonded in the right place maybe it could be adapted for glasses? The pictures below will hopefully demonstrate where I went with this, the velcro is simply stapled and double sided taped into place while the adapter got bonded onto the glasses with a smidge of 2 part 3M Scotchweld that definitely didn't come from work at all. Ever. The upshot is that as I place the hat on my head the tubes and the adaptor 'finds' the one on the glasses and very satisfyingly snaps into them. It looked and felt ok but did it work? Yes, surprisingly, my recent visit to Apocalypse with their marathons games was a good test and the battery lasted all day even though the indicator light showed red it kept going. Even if it didn't I could have used a power bank to top it up. Just a little bit of hopefully useful info for you all if you use glasses like me. Cheers!

  20. Obliterated, available on Netflix. The premise: a super-special-spy-forces team catches a badman with a suitcase nuke in Las Vegas, goes partying to celebrate, then are suddenly called back on duty when it turns out the real snuke is still out there. The execution: balls-and-cocks-and-boobs to the wall gloriously unapologetic drink-and-drug fuelled amoral uncensored scatological fun that has a great time playing with the genre tropes and character archetypes, edging fnar on parody. I mean, main guy is called "Chad McNight", and their inexperienced Tech Girl is "Maya Lerner". I put off watching this for ages because it looked so dumb that I assumed I'd hate it, but it turns out that "Don't think about it, just crack open a beer or four and enjoy it with us" is the whole point. Does it make sense? Not a bit. Is it funny? Eh, sort of. Can the cast act? Just barely, but wow, they're committed to it, and easy on the eye. Is the gunplay or fighting realistic in any way? Oh, no, not at all. But if sub-plots like "We need to find some hookers, because they'll have meth to wake up Bomb Guy from a ketamine coma" appeals, fill your boobs. I mean, boots.

  21. Ucap greenops today. It started out dryish but soon became a very wet slippery site which made the going hard but realistic. We pretended we were in Nam in a monsoon. All that was missing were the crickets and bullfrogs lol. The green ops team have been busy introducing new and exciting props and buildings along with trenches and underground bunkers although nobody was tempted to use them due to the amount of water in them lol. They will be great when the site dries though. Well done marshals and team👍 Game play was very good with no moaning or bitching and no shouts of ' I hit you' 'Oh no you didn't'. I managed seven good kills. Five with the dmr and two with the tm m9 when they came in closer than my med. I was very impressed with the performance of the M9 which was sending 28s down range very nicely. Thanks to @Jez_Armstrongfor the sale 👍 We left the site just after lunch. Wet but happy😊

  26. Picked up a cheap WE MEU that had a lot of bubbles and wear under the slides paint, sent it to West Lasers for a burnt bronze cerakote and engraving. I wanted something unique, and after playing through a bunch of the Tomb Raider remaster the past few weeks it seemed fitting.

  28. An old Pilot sat down in Starbucks and ordered a cup of coffee. As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked, ‘Are you a real pilot?’ He replied, ‘Well, I’ve spent my whole life flying biplanes, Cubs, Aeronca’s, Neiuports, flew in WWII in a B-29, and later in the Korean conflict, taught 50 people to fly and gave rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot – what about you?’ She said, ‘I’m a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.’ The two sat sipping in silence. A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked, ‘Are you a real pilot?’ He replied, ‘I always thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian.’

    GHK Glock 17 Gen 5

    So mine's arrived today. I ordered it from a trustworthy store in Hong Kong as it worked out costing around £70 less than if I were to buy it in the UK and it arrived in less than a week. I've only test shot a couple mags, so I can't comment in the longevity of it but overall first impressions are very good and it kicks very hard as you would expect from GHK. The Cerakote finish on the aluminium slide is lovely, and it does feel steel-like to the touch. The polymer frame looks and feels great too. I hated the trigger and on the Gen 3, thankfully the trigger does feel better on the Gen 5 and quite true to the real steel (but still a little mushy). It would be great as a training pistol though. The hop requires the use of an alan key and seems to be slightly easier than the Gen 3's but it's still a pain in the arse (although I haven't adjusted it yet). Another gripe is the pistol feels very light, so make sure you mount a torch and a sight to fatten it up a little. The pistol comes with 4 metal optic mounts, meaning pretty much every micro red dot should be able to fit. You also get a speed loader and a Glock patch. Winner! I will probably get a steel slide in the future but I'm very happy with my purchase at the moment. ☺️

    Right, hopefully it's there now. A few minor tweaks to sort. Cable and ptt for LLM 3d printed and put together. Found the correct LLM ptt rail holder. Unit colour added to LDS. QR codes also added. Still on the look out for the correct sling loop. But I know this is only exclusive to the sa80, so maybe waiting a while. Now to finish my Borneo SAS m16 (colt model 602) with early triangle type charging handle and grooved bolt catch.

  37. So yesterdays foray into plastic propulsion wet well. Very well. In fact I had an absolute blast. Fielded the M14 socom, with the boy using his trusty mp5. Chrono was weird though. He was reaching out to 50m+ with the mp5 but the chrono said it was doing 0.65j on .28's. Odd. Still. Everyone took their hits, the only raised voice was from a sniper who couldn't snipe and got lit up when he started shouting about it. Rookie error. 🤣 Much unhealthy food consumed, many pyros lobbed, lots of plastic slung and after a nice spot gathered me 7 in a row, we had one guy left to find to clear the village. Only the sod had got himself inside an upturned barrel and was doing the benny hill hiding thing. Took us AGES to find the bugger!!! Awesome day. I'm knackered now. 🤣🤣

  41. You can't buy from them direct I know, but they were awesome. I lost the magnet holder for my p90 perun mosfet. I couldn't find the part at a retailer so I contacted them directly. They sent me a magnet holder out free of charge. The first attempt was blocked by border force but it got to me on the 2nd attempt. They were very helpful and friendly throughout and they really didn't need to send me anything FOC. It was really nice of them I thought.

  42. Da Fuq ?, so many questions, how'd he get a job as a taxi driver in the first place with so many convictions, aren't taxi companies supposed to screen employees for the protection of their customers. Why such a piss poor sentence, again considering how much previous he's got, yanks would have thrown away the key with him. And finally, how the feck is he 49, I'm 56 & he looks old enough to be me dad, years of drugs I'm guessing ? The whole thing is an epic clusterfuck, as has been pointed out, thank God airsoft didn't get a mention🤞🙏

    Did a bit of a revamp of my 10" M4.... It's now a 5" M4. Used a spare Specna upper receiver I had, got a new 5" carbon fibre barrel, moved the ARP-9 handguard from my AAP carbine, cut down and recrowned an old Guarder 363x6.02 barrel, replaced the cylinder (from 4/5 hole to 2/3), random spring (m100? m110? who knows) and now I have a very smol boi. Why? Because I want lightweight and compact for long tournaments, this horrid thing is very consistent in Joule output and spread (very surprising given the silly short barrel), plus I'll be strapping a thermal scope onto it at night, the more weight I can shave the better. Powered by a funny 7,4v 1800mAh 130/65c battery that gets me in the 25 RPS region (by sound, need to confirm via chrono). As always, functionality over aesthetics. P.S. G43 + FTC is on there just for show, I don't really use it.

  45. Probably my last game day for a while because I'm probably going onto anticoagulants on Tuesday which means no airsoft until the procedure is done and the recovery is over. Unfortunately it went out with a bit of a whimper though. I took my G&P m14 and KJW m40a5 along with the intent of using the m14 with the m40a5 as a backup in case it wasn't shooting great. Suffice to say, it wasn't shooting great. The power is exactly where I want it and it's incredibly quiet for an AEG, but I think it needs a new hop rubber as the BBs just weren't really hopping very well, so the range was a bit poor. So why didn't I go back to the safe zone and grab my m40a5? Because I had no motivation to, basically. Worthing Airsoft at the moment is a pointless site to use anything with an MED at as there are only a few, very limited spots where you can actually use it. Furthermore, some of the spots that were fine now have twiggy bits in the way, which is wonderful for sending your shots off course, which isn't as much of a problem for semi or full auto guns as you can usually punch through, but single shot bolt actions? Not so much. Anyway, not much to really say. First game was a king of the hill style game over the Tower base; I took a flanking route and discovered the bottom of the site is currently unplayable. It took the entire game for me to fight my way through the foliage. When we flipped sides, I went to my normal spot and that's where I realised the m14 just wasn't firing well. The scope mount was slightly off so all my shots looked like they were going to the left, and the hop up wasn't working well so I was struggling to hit 50m. Combine that with the aforementioned twiggy bits and I had quite a few frustrating moments where I caught someone completely unawares only for my shots to either fall short or hit a twig and go to Narnia, giving them the opportunity to seek cover and get out of my line of sight. Anyway, now I have a few months of no gameplay, so I'm going to spend these game days on the range making sure my guns that need a bit of tweaking are sufficiently tweaked and also might put some DOPE cards together for my main bolt actions (KJW m40a5 and m700) and my DMRs (MWS and the MTW when I get it). It'd be nice to know reliably where to aim to hit targets out to 85m and beyond with a measure of accuracy. I did plink a little with the m40a5 today on the range and it was performing flawlessly as usual; hitting the 75m with pretty much every shot and even reaching to the 85m, but with less accuracy for sure; it's amazing how much difference that extra 10m makes.

  47. On one occasion, one of the other marshals was playing for the day and, armed with my MP5K, was prone on a track that led along one side of half of the site. He was picking off opposing players on the track who were certain that they were hitting him. I walked up to where he was and observed that their BBs were falling about 4m short of his position. I shouted to them confirming that they were not hitting him. They stated that they must be, so I called a ceasefire in that area, told one of them to go and stand next to him and then told the rest to try to shoot him. That finally convinced them that they were not ranging him. They had the grace to apologise.

    They asked me to marshal

    I marshalled at SPC in Shotts and then managed/ran the Wargames Centre in Ayrshire for 4 years for the owner. It’s not easy, you try to be fair, make sure the game brief is understood, make sure everyone is safe and deal with real issues, and as long as the marshal team pay attention (not staring at phones), everything else is really up to the players. You’ll never please all of the people all of the time. Some folk thing they are Jonny Concrete with laser shots, others can start the quiet rumours that someone isn’t taking hits, then it spreads like the flu and you need to get right into the skirmish, which hurts, to ensure everyone is playing fair. It did sour my view of some players, but also there are many moments where your faith in humanity is restored..to a degree 😂, when you get a genuine ouchy or safety issue or just congratulations for great shooting or gamesmanship. There’s generally many more good guys than dickheads, and you just need to keep a level head.

  50. I would expect (hope) that you were asked because, as you've been playing there a long time, they have had the opportunity to experience your temperament and disposition, and feel you have the right kind of personality to be a marshal, and unless the site is a shitshow (playing there for a long time suggests its not), then that's a compliment. As well as being able to watch over the players in terms of safety, cheating etc, a very important part of being a good marshal is being able to deal with people. You need a level head and a calm manner. You need to be able to confront people, in a professional, civil way. Not aggressively, but firmly. You need to be able to deal with an angry, or upset, or simply over excited players confronting you about something they feel passionate about. We've all seen the angry dickhead marshals. The marshals that seem dismissive or uninterested. They escalate situations, and reflect very poorly on the site they work at. A marshal shouldn't be shouting at players, unless the player in question is about to do something stupid and/or dangerous. How would you deal with a player reporting another player for non hit taking? Or those two players getting in each others faces? How are you with emergencies? Say someone has sustained a nasty injury, are you calm in those situations? How do you feel about the sight of blood? Can you stay attentive to the game day when you're not playing? Or are you going to sit on a log looking at your phone, or chatting to a pretty girl? And while not a neccesity for a marshal, to me a great marshal is one that interacts with the players as a team. Can you remain enthusiastic and encouraging for the players all day? You've been assigned the red team for a skirmish day, and they are losing every game so far. Could you rouse them up? I work at an Airsoft site, and before that I was a volunteer marshal at the same site, and we still have a lot of volunteer marshals. They don't all encompass all of the qualities above, but they have at least the important parts. All of them still play. Some play roughly every other weekend, using the marshaling day to accrue a free game day, while others play a lot less often. The less often ones, however, are loooong time airsoft players, and they still enjoy the hobby but feel the need to play less. I play less these days, but when I do I'm a better player for the marshaling experience, and I appreciate my play time more. I really enjoy marshaling, I'm glad I started. Mind you, I'm a bit weird 😁 Try it, see how you like it. You say you love the site, this gives you an opportunity to pay back the fun you've had and possibly even make suggestions for improvements. But one piece of advice; don't let it go to your head. You're just a guy herding toy soldiers. And if you don't have your high viz on you're just a guy. There was a guy at a different site we went to play at the other week, who was shooting medic state players on our team. When questioned about it the conversation lead to an angry "I'm a marshal!" Get in the fucking sea, ya prick. Have fun! All the replies here have good points, but this one is worth highlighting 😉 Airsofters leave their brains at home when they pack their kit for a game day. You WILL have to deal with absolute mongs, macho dickheads and all kinds of stupid questions (oh god, the ones that think they're funny....). You need a lot of patience.
