    I'm amazed that no one has pointed out the most obvious advice . Keep your muzzle pointed down ! It's amazing how often I see people with muzzle up in the rain and then wonder why the hop doesn't work at all

    When you come down to it in Airsoft what do you really ‘need’ bar an AEG and a couple of hi-caps ? Nothing really . What do you WANT is the question. Shower grenades/moscarts/showershells/ what ever you want to call them are just like pretty much every other ‘non standard’ weapon in Airsoft , you only get to use them literally once in a blue moon BUT when you do get to use it (properly that is) then it does put a bloody huge grin on your face ! Me personally I always say if you can carry XYZ bit of kit without any detrimental effect to how you can play then carry it , but if it’s effecting how you play because it’s too heavy/awkward to carry ? Then don’t carry dumbass !😂 So me I’d say simple as that really .👍

    @GAMBLE ignore them because nothing you post is offensive and you are not talking bullshit just being a happy person, which is refreshing. Carry on doing you and fuck others and their opinions as the only opinions that matter are opinions of people who matter.

    TM Mk46 Mod.0

    How do you know you'll have to "upgrade it" I'd say at most a spring change to bring it up to UK levels (not really an upgrade) and that's about it. Same with all Marui guns, nothing needs "upgrading" until things start to wear and you need to change them. Everything else prior to the need to change is purely out of want and nothing more. Anyone that says you HAVE to upgrade Marui rifles to have them playable is simply wrong.

    Getting rid of the rattle.

    As anyone who has run a hi-cap knows the drawback of those extra bb’s is a teeth grinding eye watering rattle whenever you move. An LMG box mag is exponentially worse. In an effort to curb the noise I have modified my Krytac LMG-E box mag with sticky back Velcro padding, using the loop roll, not the hooks. It hasn’t turned it into a super silent ninja assassin box, but it has cut out near 90% of the rattling.

    Just starting out

    Before even thinking about any upgrades, you should do the following; 1. Get your UKARA. 2. Buy the RIF you want. 3. Use it for a while, get to know and what it can and can’t do. 4. Work from that point to upgrade. 5. Do it this way to make you money go further. Don’t follow this, waste your time and money. i think many would say the same thing!

    A small part of me died

    As has already been stated, one of the biggest factors is the ability and willingness of those running the game day to adjust things as time progresses to try and provide the best experience for everyone there. Unfortunately this isn't always easy as people often want to play with their mates (understandable) and can often be unwilling to be split up, even if it is in the interests of improving the day for all involved. On a player level I think the biggest factors are being able to recognise how games are progressing and exercising that bit of judgement when it comes to their own conduct. Marshals and event organisers are far from omniscient and players need to accept a degree of responsibility too. Pummelling the opposing team consistently and to such a degree that you end up spawn camping is a perfect example of things going wrong. While this should be addressed by the staff quickly, it doesn't take much for those dishing out the pounding to say "hey guys, lets fall back a bit and give them some breathing room so that we can actually get some engagements going". I don't know about you guys but I don't find any enjoyment in spawn camping or being spawn camped. It's easy enough to pick apart flaws in site design, layouts or game types but if you see glaring issues then it's up to you to give feedback in an appropriate manner in the hope that in the longer term those involved in the running of the site will find solutions. In the mean time it takes a degree of cooperation between the players and the site staff to find interim solutions. No group is innocent within the airsoft community when it comes down to it; there are bad apples in every bunch. It costs nothing to show a bit of consideration and to conduct yourself in an appropriate fashion. Responding with infantile statements such as "get good" or other such puerile statements only serves to illustrate one of two things: either you are completely lacking in maturity or you're simply selfish to such a degree that it borders on narcissism. Yes, we all like to approach the hobby in different ways and play our own way but a certain degree of give and take isn't an unreasonable expectation, especially when it comes to the more experienced and more mature community members.

    See the problem is they'd rather win than have a good fight, whereas today i have no idea which games we won or lost, but i know there was some good fightin regardless. Thing is in that case its up to the site to change up the game modes to stop that happening, its the opposite end of the spectrum to a grindfest and just as annoying. Switch it up to a fall back game and let the older players get themselves nicely perched in the bushes and see how well speedsoft tactics work against that.

    Bought a couple of harder to find bits. Been searching for the calico m1000 for a few years but only recently set up a contact in Japan who's willing to ship juicy things out. The calico is sat in customs while they figure how much lube they're going to use, and I found a goblin deuce as a bit of an impulse buy. The photos are from the guy that's sent it over from Osaka. I can't wait to actually have it. And it will be skirmished.

    Comfort levels in CQB

    I'm calling bullshit on concussion from BBs. A concussion is where your head is hit hard enough for the brain to impact the skull and swell a little, unless that 2g of BBs were travelling at Mach 3 when they hit there's not even a remote possibility of causing concussion. A nasty bruise and a bit of discomfort maybe, but concussion, no.

    4 at my local site is the start of overkill. No bang rule. DSG warriors really annoy me with their arcs of fire just blasting anything. They aren't aiming just guessing and sending enough volume to be sure. I think the only way around that is ammo limits if they want to sent 10-20 bbs around every corner they pie then they might think twice if ammo was limited.

    Airsoft in the rain

    I'll happily play in the rain, but like some people have already said, there comes a point where I draw a line. If its absolutely slinging it down and everyone looks like a drowned rat, standing water everywhere, and I'm more concerned about protecting my expensive electric toy gun than I am playing the game, it is no longer fun. Where it no longer becomes fun is clearly different for everyone, but its entirely down to the individual when they wish to call it a day. That said I don't see the harm in some light hearted banter if some players run for cover as soon as the rain starts falling. Something people haven't mentioned yet though is eye pro fogging up. Sunday just gone I played at Bawtry and was the worst conditions I've played in for fogging up. Combination of rain and humidity meant my usually reliable eye pro was fogging up along with everyone else's. We were all having to demist after every game, and given there were only 10 of us playing 5 on 5, they were short games. End of the day If someone is miserable, cold and wet, they don't wont to risk damaging their AEG and they cant play 2 minutes without their eye pro misting up they are perfectly within their rights to say bollocks to this, this aint fun today. They are not in the military getting paid to train and fight come rain or shine, it is their own time and their own gear/guns they are risking with water damage. If some people leave, adapt. By mid afternoon on Sunday there were only 4 of us left, though it wasn't the weather that had forced the other players to leave (family, gear issues and car sharing). We just played some really quick and fun 2 v 2 and every man for himself games instead, and no-one cried about it what so ever.

    Oh, it is effective, no argument there. It's also a dick move, for reasons covered above: blind/blinding fire, friendly fire, overkill on dead players, hitting marshals, or shooting Tackle in the face at which point he'll reach down your throat and rip your viscera out (I think, I stopped reading a while back).

    Oh hai. Can you point out to which of these actual defences you think that you're referring? https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/38/section/37 37 Specific defences applying to the offence under s. 36 (1) It shall be a defence for a person charged with an offence under section 36 in respect of any conduct to show that the conduct was for the purpose only of making the imitation firearm in question available for one or more of the purposes specified in subsection (2). (2) Those purposes are— (a) the purposes of a museum or gallery; (b) the purposes of theatrical performances and of rehearsals for such performances; (c) the production of films (within the meaning of Part 1 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (c. 48)_see section 5B of that Act); (d) the production of television programmes (within the meaning of the Communications Act 2003 (c. 21)_see section 405(1) of that Act); (e) the organisation and holding of historical re-enactments organised and held by persons specified or described for the purposes of this section by regulations made by the Secretary of State; (f) the purposes of functions that a person has in his capacity as a person in the service of Her Majesty. Registered how? With whom? There's is no licence to import, manufacture, modify, sell (or to provide a defence for selling) airsoft RIFs. There is a defence of "the course of carrying on any trade or business", but that applies only to importer and importers, not to selling. I know this seems curious, but strictly speaking, I don't believe that there is a defence for selling to a retailer, since you cannot know to what purpose the retailer will put the RIF. Practically speaking, pffft, nobody, anywhere, ever, is going to care.

    This is a pleasure hobby. If people aren't enjoying it, why would they make themselves miserable by persevering? Go on though, try and harangue folk into playing it by belittling them. See if that results in anything other than them coming to resent both it, and you. Not necessarily in that order.

    A small part of me died

    ^ this... I see a lot of people slagging off others that put an inordinate amount of effort into stuff like kit, prep, play style, teching, milsim, speedsoft, impression kits, (some of those mentioned dont interest me but can appreciate why people like it - me personally I enjoy not only the playing but also the kit prep and organization, sad I know) etc to be the best they can be for their type of game play but no-one bats an eyelid when there's a team at a game who couldn't give a fuck about playing objectives or following a story they just want to empty their mag into a puddle before the first game even starts and then when the first whistle blows amble towards the first bit of cover and barely walk all the way back to spawn when they die while the people who do put the effort in actually do all the pushing/hard work and have to do so on their own and carry a team (and no I'm not just talking about kit whores I have seen full groups of rentals carry the rest of the team of "seasoned" Airsofters) You can try and balance teams all you want but when you have people that turn up to games that literally have no interest in anything other than shooting anything that makes a noise or goes splish splash its hard to even that out. Don't get me wrong if you pay your money you do what you want (within reason) but why turn up to games with no intention of ever wanting to actually play the games? there is absolutely no logic in that what so ever, those types could quite easily just go in the garden with their mate and shoot each other there. As a marshal its really disheartening and also very morale draining to have a group of people who couldn't give a toss how much effort you put in to make the day enjoyable for everyone by just not giving a shit and deciding that they would rather just amble about and not even attempt the objectives. Skirmishes always have an objective and I've not been to a site yet that doesn't at least have a loose objective to a game. While I may have gone off on a bit of a rant there, there is definitely room for everyone in Airsoft but I think that people really need to consider not only their audience as a site but as a player, where you choose to play. 100% this. Sometimes we have a team being thrashed all day and moan constantly about changing up the teams, teams get changed, team still gets pummeled. We've seen it happen where just one or two people attitudes can either kill or carry a whole team of people through a game day .

    A small part of me died

    The site did try to sort it , they asked them to ease up on turning it in to nothing but a foot race and they basically turned around and said fuck off ! So the site then dropped the single objective games and banned full auto for the rest of the day so they had to play the same as everyone else . Question why should a site change its layout to suit 5or6 players when the other 60 on site are happy with it as it is ? seeing as I’m middle aged with a nackered leg and a couple of cracked vertebrae and can’t run for shit anymore are the guys who run the speedsoft sites going to alter them to suit me because I’ve turned up and want to play there ? Don’t think so ! Equally applies to any sport that has different styles ? Just indicative of life in general these days the majority having to bend to accommodate the minority. PS who the feck is Richard ? 😳

    Hug a Marshal !

    I've not done much in the way of marshalling beyond being mistaken for one occasionally when not playing, but i have herded cats and i can confirm that of the 2 the cats are easier, at least you can just open a pack of ham and lead them on a merry adventure.

    Hug a Marshal !

    I like to equate airsoft to a red arrows air display , marshal gives the game brief , marshal gives the teams there objectives , you may even get a few ‘keen’ players saying “I’ve done this one before so we need to do X,Y and Z to win” most players start muttering encouraging noises to this sage advise , the marshal shout “game on !” and this is the red arrows bit , at the end of the display the team leader shouts “break break break !” In to his headset and the planes all shoot off in different directions AND that’s exactly what most airsofters do when game on is called ! They just run off in every possible direction and I swear to god if it wasn’t for the fact 9 out of 10 times you start off on the perimeter of the site so you can’t actually go backwards then I’m sure some would run off in THAT direction as well ! One minute you’ve got 20or30 players standing waiting to start and supposedly follow the game plan and the next there’s like 5or6 of you standing there thinking “well that went as expected !” 🤦‍♂️ 🤣🤣🤣

    Lol, felt very God like ! But I swear the next person who asked ' what's respawn ?' during a game , after you made it very clear in the brief and asked for any questions , was in danger of a serious dose of sarcasm 😂
