  1. So Cameron has cried off like a girl to leave the hard work to someone else, the Scots are banging their Indy drum again, the Irish are even having a go, and now there's French and Dutch politicians saying it's their turn All in all, an eventful day so far, all we need to do is see bo-jo pit forward for PM and Putin to ask about taking the UKs place in the EU and I'll regret not getting the popcorn out
  2. I've had the opposite experience with my own 228. Maybe it's not made of aircraft grade stuff, but its tough as nails, accurate enough for my play style, and I never had issues with my hop unit, just the occasional tlc for the mag o-rings like any GBB and a quick lube before each game I get that everyone has different experiences and preferences, but I prefer my WE pistol to any TM that I've used, call me a heretic, but I do
  3. Not a bad shout, however: While these may be two contradictory values, I'm after a good winter pistol that's GBB, NBB has never done it for me
  4. No worries mate, to be honest, the WE hasn't let me down since I broke my nub, and my brothers TM has been a finicky little bugger, and I use propane, which shouldn't do it any favours. People can say what they want about WE pistols, but mine was good value and very reliable, and I'd buy another. I do want another for winter though, but don't know any pistols that work well around the 0 degree Mark like my G5
  5. I busted my 228 loading nozzle (my pistols blowback mechanism is identical) by loading a full mag with the slide forward, since then, I've always inserted full mags with the slide locked back so the top BB never has to be pushed down the mag by the nozzle nub. How do you load/reload yours? I've not had an issue with mine since adjusting my technique, despite playing many times in temperatures approaching freezing when the plastic becomes brittle
  6. I used dino pc and couldn't fault them, not the fastest service in the world but definitely worth a punt if they can do what you want cheap
  7. Anyone else use welts? I tried them for the first time breaking in my second hand well mb01 and the first three jammed in the tbb before I realised what was happening. Since then I broke the hop rubber trying to unjam the barrel...
  8. Hungry Yorkshiremen shouldn't be allowed near keyboards... My vote right now is OUT. I'm happy for Brussels to put something on the table to change my mind, but to be honest, we need a clear, objective, unbiased comparison of the two potential futures on mainstream media to help everyone decide. My old man offered me a ten pound bet today, he thinks that the UK will vote out, Cameron will resign (like Alex Salmon did when he didn't get his way with Scotland) and the Tories will put Boris Johnson in number 10... I might take the bet and hope to God that the lovable idiot isn't allowed the chance... Bo jo that is
  9. I will hold off for a second or two if they don't have a gun around the corner as well, it's typically younger players or the less experienced peeking corners without their weapon up. If we both have guns pointed at each other, it's fair game, and I'd expect to be treated the same way if I were pointing my gun at someone. That said, the head is a lousy target to shoot at, if someone sees the BB they can dodge it, especially at longer ranges, aim for somewhere else and there's less chance they'll see it coming, and more chance they'll feel it if you hit the gentlemen's region...
  10. Heresy! Blasphemy! Bring me my best throwing stones! I think you've just only experienced poor GBBs, I've had more feeding issues with one AEG (a top-tech g&g which is otherwise flawless) than I have with both my pistol and g5 combined, which is 0 if I discount the time I broke my pistol My experience with nuprols isn't too bad, the g5 handles them just fine and the pistol hasn't missed a best yet, even the troublesome feeding of the TR15 hasn't been any different with nuprols. That said, as long as they go in the right direction when I pull the trigger, my bbs are working fine. I've never once checked a BB for seams or bubbles
  11. If I post a question thread. I find I get more help if I write the title in caps and include the words "please help" or "urgent", especially when the topic title is unclear and gives no inclination as to my question
  12. I have a utg sight and its certainly a good one. The dot is so crisp and clear it makes my cheapo g&p fakepoint look like the cheap stuff it is.
  13. Me and a few mates use radios to keep in touch at skirmishes, but since we bought fairly entry-level PMR radios, they only come with a secret-service style air tube earpiece and cheapo ptt box, which makes getting communications over clearly a challenge, especially when someone is trying to give their position but needs to keep their voice down. I was looking at options and like the idea of attaching a headset piece to my helmet rails, which gives a good quality earpiece and boom Mic. But after seeing abbreviations everywhere, I realised I know nothing, or even if the new stuff would connect to our low budget radios I have a Twintalker 9500 (or something very similar) with what looks like a standard 2.5mm Jack plug for working two ways (speaker and Mic through the same line). Will this be the same as most headsets use? And if I'm doing away with the strap over the head to clip the cups onto my lid, can I do away with the side without the Mic as well, so one ear is free to listen out for stuff that isn't transmitted over the radio? I get that they're probably stupid questions, but I really am clueless... Please don't relegate me to the Cow and Gate section Thanks
  14. Ah, I'm on mobile so couldn't see the post count. Don't buy a GBBR for a first gun, just get an AEG, don't expect any satisfying recoil (unless the new fangled tm recoil guns live up to hype) and join the dark side after you're into the sport and fairly sure you're not going to get bored and end up with loads of expensive gear you never use
  15. Buy a GBBR Seriously, once you've tried a real blowback gun, no ebb will ever be worth it. I don't even notice the blowback on my TR15 because it doesn't move my arm
