  1. Ghillie update. Day 2. Nobody warned me how boring this would be. Genuinely want to stab myself in the eye with my craft needle.

    1. Impulse

      Impulse

      This sounds about right... However, at the end remember that you'll have a pretty unique product that will properly stand out on the field... in the safe zone because no one will see you in the field ;) (because nobody makes their own ghillie these days because they can just buy a pre-made leaf suit and be done with it)

       

      It's worth it in the end. I'm doing mine too and it's hell. We'll get there eventually! xD

  2. 3 Weeks odd to kill?? Just pulled the ghillie base and yarns out.

    1. Impulse

      Impulse

      Haha, we're in the same boat. Got a leaf suit, but I want a proper ghillie suit and I've had all the stuff for around 10 years now!

       

      What are you using for yours? I'm using hessian and a webtex concealment vest.

    2. Skara

      This boat is rather large then.

      I have 2 systems to craft (leaf suit and viper hood)

    3. Steveocee

      Steveocee

      @Impulse very similar boat.

      I'm using a modified webtex in that is been cut off at the back where the belt strap is and stitched so it doesn't fall apart then using Helikon ghillie fibres for the yarn, just like burlap only they won't go up in flames.

       

      Using a self threading needle to get the yarns into the base cloth to leave elastic free for foliage.

  3. Anyone else bored yet?

      @rocketdogbert I must be boring then 😂

    3. Skara

      Skara

      I can still work :(

      which means being bored by default because I can only do a small portion of what I actually have to do.

       

      When I'm home I can't do anything because living in a flat sucks... I can only plink at a chimney on a roof 40m from my window but that's about it :(

      Not yet, servicing all the guns, garden plinking and giving the cars a serious clean inside and out should keep me busy for a good while. Then I'm sure The Boss will find me a few little jobs to do round the house ! Just hope I've got enough BBs to last 

      Oh and cruising the Gun porn on the interweb and compiling a huge wish list 🤣

  4. Hello, I appreciate you may have some stock flow issues ATM but do you know when you'll be getting some more suppressors in? Really trying to get my hands on something 200mm long with a diameter 30-34mm?

      Alas mine isn't that long....

      it is what you do with it I tell Mrs Duck

      (but she responds all small owners say that)

       

      they are about still if Pete is out...

      " I've been told that the HK postal service is fine so far."

       

      HK have fairly effectively quarantined themselves and stopped most of the Plague Zombies shuffling in from the mainland.  Their supply chains will be infec- I mean, affected, same as everywhere else, but if you're buying from stock, now, you should be OK.

    3. Philby21

      Ordered a couple of bits from two different AliExpress sellers on the 28th of January, one dispatched pretty quickly and arrived on the 18th of February.  Notification that the other has been dispatched received two days ago.  Seems like some stuff is moving but it's very hit and miss.

       

      Personally speaking, as long as it's not a return of bubonic plague (death toll 70-200 million) or Spanish flu (death toll 40-50 million) then I'm not too concerned.  The "regular" flu virus kills 300,000-500,000 people a year (source), current global death toll appears to be around 2,800 out of 82,000 reported cases (source), a mortality rate of 3.4%, this obviously does not take into account unreported cases of those people who felt a bit unwell for a couple of weeks, didn't bother seeing a doctor and recovered without an issue, resulting in figures giving more weight to the death toll.

       

      Context is a wonderful thing but doesn't sell newspapers.  Either that or I've just become overly cynical following year after year after year of the latest "panic".

      And queue a fantastic video pop up in my YT subscription feed from @Armourpiercing. Impeccable timing dude.

    4. Sitting Duck

      Sitting Duck

      yeah I saw that with connector set & vice etc...

      saw that this morning - nice dsg vid too

       

      I was thinking of buying a Titan on my wish list with Seigetek etc...

       

      After watching the vid I am even more determined to

      NOT buy a Titan

       

      Good vid, amazing build - heck 7.4v would have done

      but as Luke said he did it to prove a point

      not he can't build it, but chooses NOT to build wanker guns

  7. Inconsiderate postman woke me at 7 with my Skirmshop order.

  9. Second play with camo pens. Quite happy with the result.

      @L3wisD It does, even if you prep really well (lots-o-sanding) the final outcome is very textured as you're applying relatively thick amounts with a sponge. On RIFs I see it as a good thing as it's quite grippy and matt. I guess you could sand it back and lacquer if you wanted smooth but then it'd be glossy?

  10. Excitement at getting a shipping notification and not remembering what it was you ordered 😎

    1. Philby21

      Philby21

      I was wondering why I hadn't had shipping notifications for a couple of things I'd ordered on AliExpress - then thought, oh yeah - China's in the news a bit right now! 😂

       

      Have you remembered yet?

    2. Steveocee

      Steveocee

      To be fair, my AliExpress orders came through no problems. This notification is from Skirmshop 😈

      Ooohhh!  Sounds like something interesting then! 😁

      same, go to order a plugboard and end up getting a MAXX hop unit as well.

       

      tbf i was gonna buy one eventually anyway, at least that's what i'm telling myself to let me sleep at night.

    3. Steveocee

      Steveocee

      I mostly find myself panicking when ordering as I try to bundle as much as I can to save on postage and end up massively overspending even though I would buy the stuff eventually. Worse still is most places have 1 thing not the other in stock and vice versa from another seller so at that point I've talked myself into buying so why stop now?

      Only a small shopping list left now though.

    4. Adolf Hamster

      Adolf Hamster

      always the way, probably not actually saving that much but it's one of those things that feels like it makes sense.

  12. Anyne going Anzio tomorrow and has an EFCS programmer?

      If you went the HPA M4 mag adapted pistol route, I'm afraid we would have to report you for crimes against airsoft.

      Yeah on reflection I was tired and extremely bored lol

      it seems so, we'll let this little transgression slide this time but any more heretical thoughts you'll have to report to the ministry for cleansing.

  14. OMG The amoeba lives! 1 year in pieces and it is now better in one piece than it was before it was taken apart as a donor.

      Congrats man it has to be the most satisfying thing in the world, doing something you never thought you would be able to do😁

  15. Tonight I rebuild the AM-008. It will either work or it will be in the garden in pieces.

  16. Mk23 Vs SSX23 ?? However I already have an STTi which is a pile of a$$ but I have hadron & CJ parts for it.

    1. SuckMySock

      SuckMySock

      Upgrade the STTi, end result will be the same as SSX23

    2. Skara

      Skara

      Why would you pay over €100 for what's essentially a blingy pile of shit?

      I have one and got extremely lucky, mine only had a shit outer barrel that got promptly replaced by Nov's CS with a slightly less shit one (still not aligned, but it's workable now). Again I got lucky with CS, others got told to fuck off.

      Doesn't even come with a suppressor.

       

       

      Get a genuine TM or another STTI, since you already have the important upgrades.

      Trust me.

       

      P.S. the main selling point of the SSX, the SUPADUPA Alu slide, is off spec by a fucking nautical mile.

    3. Steveocee

      Steveocee

      It seems that some of the shite performance of my STTi may be that I'm using a Fang rather than a H-plate. am going to try that before I start obsessing over a sticky trigger and crap feeding mags.

      Thanks for the opinions though guys. I just wanted to throw money at it for a complete solution but I think I "know" the answer is to pour more love into the STTi.

      Petrol is the greatest smell in the world..... especially when it has fuel additive in it!! Then again I have been sniffing that stuff most of my adult life so it may have had an effect!

  19. British MTP dyed green pic!

    image.png.4c212a29e7f47d82ea52c5a6bb048fc2.png

    Had a spare set of MTP and wanted something greener for the summer. £7 of Dylon did this and a shirt.

      I cant see the pic, but I too have a set of MTP that has been dyed green, works very well which isn't something you can usually say about MTP 😂

    2. Steveocee

      Steveocee

      @Nick G thanks for the heads up. That's fixed now. I have only ever known MTP work well once. Hopefully this green MTP will save me from buying more BDU.

  20. Today I spent money faster than I made it. Damn you Skirmshop!
