  1. If that is a reasonable price I stand corrected and the seller is not a dreamer. I don’t know how rich I would need to be to spend a grand on something to carry £20 mags round in, but it would have to be Bill Gates levels of rich.

    Are you a KM fan perhaps? because this is one of the most retarded rules I've ever heard of and it's legit asking to be abused by the less mentally challenged airsofters. The problem is that you all should stop bitching about getting shot in the face, you're literally feeding KM's weird pain fetish with more and more content to put out. Wear your fucking face pro and quit acting like manchildren. Don't want to? accept the consequences, like @Tommikkajust said. If people suddenly stopped giving shits about being shot in the head he wouldn't have anything on that front to make content out of, but apparently it's a 5000 IQ play.

    My tribute to the Blood Diamond Carbine. I know the upper is incorrect, but I prefer it without the brass deflector in all honesty. Fitting the torch mount into the FSB was quite the faff!

  6. Simple rule at most sites I played at: don't aim for the head IF there are other parts showing. If someone jumps out from behind a door or wall and you snapshot them in the face, fair play. Likewise, if they are playing pop-up pirate and only showing the head, go of it. But you have time and line of sight on something else, go for that.

    Pmr 446

    Hopefully to clarify, the BF-888 is not UK legal due to power output, but the BF-888S/BF-88e PMR Version are 0.5W and come with a fixed antenna (hence the name change to BF-88e). There are different versions of all the Baofeng radios which have very subtle changes to the model number but significant differences in functionality! As for legit PMR446 - Motorola TLKR is the the go to.

    2 example pretty much sum up my views on headshots: scenario 1- woodland area sneaking through the bushes, meet another player along the path. i'm at left hand concealement and i can't shoot for shit left handed so i figure i'll tuck myself into the hedge wait for the other guy to move out of cover towards me. other player fires a burst through the hedge, and it makes it's mark (hedge was not as dense as i'd thought), however whilst he'd aimed for where he reckoned me stomach would be because i've tucked down deeper i catch it straight to the noggin. he issues a quick sorry, i point out i'd crouched into it, end of story. scenario 2- outside area with a few bunkers, i'm frantically defending against a lot of players attacking from the front, don't notice the sneaky bugger coming round behind. he has a clear view of me through the door of the bunker and lets fly- an extended auto blast right into the face at a relatively short distance. he could have aimed anywhere but chose the face. in both cases i'm catching a burst to the bonce, but the context is the important thing. the objective at the end of the day is to get the other player to notice, and therefore call the hit. but there is a subset of players who seem to think that's not enough and they need to go above and beyond. they may try to justify it to themselves by claiming it's to "deal with cheaters" or whatever but in my experience that's a hollow argument as someone who's dead set on not calling a hit won't call it no matter how hard, how much, or where you hit them but someone who's honest will call the lightest of glancing blows. calling players that take exception to this weak isn't really the way forward. i'm paying money to have fun, i'm not paying money to be someone else's punching bag or to undergo more pain than is necessary, if i was into that i'd play paintball or take up boxing instead.

    Be careful with what you wish for The problem with headshots isn’t people like Kicking Mustang, it’s inadequate PPE Currently the minimum requirement for airsoft eye protection is impact protection for the eyes. I hate seeing the glasses style of eye protection, I haven’t seen an eye hit, but I have seen BBs get into the glasses. The minimum that I personally feel that there should be is goggle type protection that covers the eyes and seals the area around the eyes Younger players are required to wear full face protection, adults are responsible for themselves and can wear the minimum protection. It’s then your choice as an adult, you know that no matter what the rules are about headshots that a BB might hit a head someone could break the rule and deliberately go for the head, you might move before the BB arrives or it doesn’t fly in a perfectly straight line from a player with perfect eyesight with perfect sights fitted to a perfect airsoft gun Mustang is being a dickhead, for clicks and monetisation. He is not the only dickhead in the world, and any anti Mustang campaign will still leave other dickheads around

  11. Hi guys, this is just a little prod towards my channel that I started a couple of months ago. The camera work will probably hurt your eyes and i'm terrible at speaking but there are a few unboxings and reviews on there of RIFs. I do plan on uploading footage of my local CQB when we're y'know, not all dying. I'm trying to get some decent camera gear together and get a handle on editing as I go, so apologies for the general roughness at the moment! Thanks for looking.

  12. I've started a YouTube channel dedicated to my airsoft stuff. I only intended the footage to be clipped together so my kids could see what I do when I go absent from parenting for the day but thought why not stick them on YouTube so I can be immortalised in history as being a nobody? Link to my channel right here First airsoft video I've ever made. Yeah the camera quality could be better (not moaning at £30 cam though) and yes the editing and transitions should be better (not a Vegas genius) but hopefully you watch/like/sub/enjoy it.

    sensible move, no sense paying money to fix something that ain't broke. generally the nozzle is the one thing that can't really be improved that easy without a part replacement, especially the ones that don't have o-rings as standard. worth pulling everything except the gears from the box when checking, you also need to remember to try it with the box tightened up as what might be perfect with the box held together can lock up tight when you bolt everything together. sometimes these things happen, if i had a penny for every time i've taken a broken thing apart, found nothing whatsoever wrong with it, put it back together and it's worked again...... yeah that's weak magnets for ya, if the rate of fire is good enough don't need to replace it on that alone though. little tlc goes a long way, like i said worth checking the air seal first because otherwise you'll end up hauling a much stronger spring than the fps you're getting merits. plus it'll go miles to helping accuracy, and by extension effective range- the way to tell is shot-shot consistency being much lower than before.

  18. spring. was pretty fun tbh, accuracy wise seemed pretty passable (caveat it was a sub 1j otherwise stock gun on .32's) i'd say somewhere in the region of stock vsr terrirory. although the front sight mount is a bit flimsy on it, the one i was using wasn't that old and had already lost the front post. the cocking peice on the bolt can sometimes rotate and jam on you, but once you get the hang of it it's ok. mag's a bit weird, it works just fine once you figure it out, although constantly winding it up to reload mid-game will strip the skin off your thumb, reckon it'd be a right pain to fix if the string breaks though. if you do get one then make sure and get the front sight attached as solid as you can and the wood isn't the nicest (but some wire wool and oil should sort that out)

    Sorry to be the one fella, but that is still illegal, Baofengs not BF-88x transmit at 1 or 5 watts, the legal limit on PMR is 0.5 watts... Although the chances of getting collared are infinitesimal... What you will end up doing is jamming the frequency for anyone else tryingg to use 446MHz because of your higher output

  20. can't say i agree with that. when you're dealing with cover you can almost guarantee that headshots are a necessity because all the target profile you're gonna have to shoot at is their gun, maybe some arm/shoulder, with the head being the biggest target. the problem is not headshots in general, it's unnecessary headshots ie intentionally aiming for the face/head when you have other parts of the body to shoot at. km may very well not be aiming intentionally for headshots as often as it appears in his videos, however he is portraying himself to be a player that intentionally goes for the head.

    The great irony of all of this dumpster fire is that the moron leading the anti KM group was himself banned from a load of WW2 themed games because he whinged about not being allowed to use a rifle more than 370FPS.........Link can be provided for evidence if people wish. The upshot is both him and KM need to fuck off and disappear from Airsoft as soon as possible.

    Did this thread just go full circle? For anyone first joining the thread here, no the initial topic wasn’t talked about for 9 pages. What was discussed? Gun laws, stupid people, the phrase ‘checks and balances’ appeared a lot, various hand to hand weapons (some conventional, some less so), charts and graphs... and I’m pretty sure a UKARA question some how snuck in there.

    Having been In the lucky position of once owning real firearms AND had the miss fortune to have them shot at me personally I’m more than happy with the gun control in this country . I genuinely see no reason to own anything apart from what’s on the statutes right now , for me all the reasons and excuses that are always given to own anything else are simple just excuses not reasons . The right to defend ones self and home , in the past 10yrs how many people (bar old age pensioners who probably Couldn’t have defended them selves even if they had a gun) have died at the hands of a burglar ? There’s been several cases of the burglar dying at the hands of the home owner(the pikey who was stabbed 2yrs ago for instance ?) but the home owner ? I can’t think of any . Also as anyone who’s ever been shot at or seen someone being shot at unless you train day in day out for mths 90% of the population will just crap them selves/freeze/panic or just react totally incorrectly to the situation so that’s that one down in flames . The criminals still have them , yes they do but that’s what armed response are for , again in the past 10yrs how many random members of the public have been shot and killed by a criminal ? Plus have you seen the kind of guns that are frequently picked up by the police on ops ? 8 out of 10 are pieces of shit ! another burned argument . i should have the right to be able to own them as a good law abiding tax paying citizen , err no you shouldn’t , there plenty of things that joe public just shouldn’t and don’t have . Should ban alcohol and tobacco because of the number of deaths each year , now this one really is a puerile argument , most deaths from both these are self inflicted FFS ! when was the last time you saw a story on the news about some nutter kicking in the door of a school and making all the kids have a fag and a pint with him and kept them going till they all developed sclerosis of the liver and lung cancer and died ?!?! no one can deny the fact there just isn’t any real gun crime in this country plain and simple where as America is just beyond saving there’s just too many guns in circulation so they NEVER will solve it . In the UK since 1837 when the records first started and the present there’s been two reported school shootings , the first was in 1850 when a boy took his fathers old service revolver to school and shot two of his mates (he got transported to Australia for that one !) and Dunblane 1996 when 16 children and 1 teacher was killed and 15 others wounded , and what happened after that ? They banned private ownership of hand guns . Was the country flooded with armed criminals now the population were unarmed ? Nope nothing changed . you know how many school gun incidents there been in America since the year 2000 ? 347 ! That’s how many times law enforcement has been called to an educational facility to deal with criminal activity involving firearms . I’m sorry but that statistic alone show just how fucked up there gun laws are and how correct ours are as they are . I’m more than happy with what I’ve got thank you very much .😁👍

    13 states and DC require checks for all private gun purchases and two require them for handgun purchases only. Three states require state issued firearm permits for all private gun purchases and four require them for private handgun purchases. Therefore, a minority of states require some form of check or permit for private gun purchases. The huge gaping hole in Federal law is plugged by local rules; the exceptions are the states that do require some checks, not those who do not. One basic question: outside of certain extremely limited situations, why does anyone in the UK need to own a firearm? Just for the avoidance of doubt, I have carried firearms, have had them fired at me and have fired them at other human beings. That is why I like strict gun control laws.

    i wasnt trying to say thats what you were suggesting, just merely taking your logic and twisting it slightly. let me do it a different way using your first sentance quoted above: In the UK you need a licence to own a 'wild animal' https://www.gov.uk/licence-wild-animal (this covers big cats, wolves etc). now the news never seems to report about 'lunatics' getting hold of a puma and going on a rampage. but you hear about dangerous dog attacks all the time. surely we should open up ownership of large predatory mammals because clearly the checks are working to keep them out of the wrong hands? as an argument it makes no sence, a smaller crime number/reported news is not grounds for opening up possession to people that dont need a gun, or in this case a puma. the act of limiting ownership is always going to reduce its prevalence. knives sadly are needed for DIY work and to cook or eat with, you cannot really control that beyond the age restriction to buy them. but an 18 year old wanna be gangster is still going to be able to buy one, and i dare say under 18s would also find a way (kitchen drawers are a good place to look). The UK's vetting of gun ownership is clearly working to a degree. that doesnt mean we should open that up to everyone in the country in some pseudo american way resulting from paranoia of a british invasion (we cant invade ourselves). i dont know about the others here feel, but i like knowing or at least assuming that the only firearms i get in close proximity to on the street are in the hands of law enforcement. there are plenty of people i do know that would jump at getting a gun that i am so glad cant. If things open up, the first wave of people, which i think you would count under, go through the process of getting a gun for the sole reason of 'i want one'. Then a chain reaction akin to an arms race happens as other people would want one just because you have one. permeating the populace to a point where the likelyhood of a disgruntled employee or bullyed teen that isnt quite suicidal takes said legally owned gun and uses it illegally, with a death toll and effective range that a knife could only ever dream of, were they sentient. what we have now works because the number of legally owned guns in public hands is quite small compared to the population in general. They also need to justify why they need to own such a weapon and the weapon needs to be suited to the intended job (H&S at work act anyone?). So here its hunting, sports or pest control using small claibre rifles and shotguns generally with ownership skewing majorly to rural areas. As a general rule, farmers, to quote Hot Fuzz. there is no need for anyone to be rocking military style firearms in this country, i know badgers have a nasty bite, but it is still no bear. as for zombie knives and all those weird stylised things. i agree, they should be controlled and certainly not be supplied with a live blade. but we all know angle grinders would solve that for anyone who really wanted to sharpen it...

    y'know its an interesting issue. not all of the uk has the luxury of the 1.3/2.5j limit and some places are stuck at a flat 1j. and guess what- folks still run hot. indeed when caught out it's always "oh that spring was for when i went to the mainland for a game, musta forgot to change it back" or some bullshit excuse along those lines. what that says to me is that the allowable limit isn't the problem, it's the proper enforcement of said limit to ensure a level playing field. it worries me how so very easily i could run at higher energies when sites barely chrono at the start of the day, don't understand the difference between fps/joules (let along joule creep), and sure as hell don't chrono mid-game. indeed as i recounted in another thread the only time i've ever had an hpa reg zip tied was when i did it myself to demonstrate to the marshals it was a thing you could do.

  37. @Tackle Main take away is that he is lying on this videos about the hits he is claiming to make. Using on screen hit markers to make the players who he is missing, appear to be cheaters. Then actively naming a site who banned him from filming, implying that site was trying to hide its apparent high cheat rate and he was the victim. When the reality is he cannot hit the side of a barn and is just good at editing in markers. Then the cream on the cake is him sending his simps to the airsoft sites social media pages to kick off about his unfair treatment and how they are masking the cheating issues. Then remarking how airsoft only works with honesty. Whether this guy is making money from his videos or not. What a cunt 😛 Before I even joined this forum, I had already told Youtube not to show me his videos. Common theme in most of my post/rants is how i hate cheaters. So KM if you are reading this
