    Surely these questions need to be asked so that google search brings up recent articles, just because 5 years ago the RM4 was the dogs danglies, it isn't now. Current opinions are what keeps forums going, if you don't want folk to annoy with questions you have previously done, don't look at their posts, just walk on past them and click on the ones that do interest you.
    A forum is not a forum if it has no interaction, it is a database of old thoughts.

    I got THIS Classic Army M16A1 which they call the M15A1
    Seems nicely put together and shoots OK in the garden.  High rate of fire in auto.
    Not had a chance to test in game yet.
     
    I like my stuff to look 'used' so gave it a vintage look... (still needs a bit of polishing on the furniture)
    (Yes, the sling is wrong)

    Well she’s not expensive, she’s not got a custom paint job and she doesn’t shoot 1km with laser accuracy but here is Vikki, named after a woman who broke my heart so badly I have a permenant arrhythmia.

    Hey gents. 

    I hate M4's but I jumped on this one last year as it was going cheap brand new at a local shop. (ICS CXP-15 Proline metal). It was a pistol style only M4 with no stock. I bought it to be upgraded straight away.
     
    Prommy Tightbore barrel
    Maple leaf flat hop. 
    ICS Metal Hop unit. 
    Short stroked piston. 
    New spring. 
    New ICS pistol grip (Old one broke during the upgrade process, the new style grip needed a lot of fettling and swearing from my tech to go on)
    Mosfet. 
    ICS QRS Stock
    SRU foregrip
    Holo sight. 
    Canted Ironsights (Because they look kickass.)
     
    Managed to blow the fuse first game as it was the one for 7.4 lipos, need to get the 30A. Also the ICS high caps weren't feeding fast enough in full auto so had to use my Nuprol midcaps. 
     
    I also have the Mag short midcaps, which looks better do you think? If I am to use the Mag short midcaps i'll need to get a stronger spring for them to feed well. 
     
    For an M4 it looks alright... I guess...

    EDcase got a reaction from Druid799 in Airsoft carry bags and cases   
    I use a synth keyboard bag which has backpack straps.  Its big enough to fit a normal gun bag inside too.
    You could carry several weapons rapped in cloth (towels?) to separate them.

    As has been said by practically everyone, 'fear' is too strong a word.  That would be like "I don't want to play anymore"
     
    Adrenalin pumping excitement or tension... sure, that's what its all about.
     
    Either a running charge on a position or hiding in a bush with 'enemy' moving past you just feet away....

    As others have said I don't think 'scared' is the right word, but there have been a few 'oh f**k' moments! 😂
     
    Certainly been a few times, where I wish I had full face protection rather than just eye pro but that's my choice. So I only have myself to blame there! 
     
    Getting shot in the face does hurt!  A few weeks ago I got a perfect shot on my forehead that wouldn't stop bleeding!  Chicks dig scars right?
     
    Although my wife didn't agree, especially when we had a wedding to attend a few days later! 😀

    I do get a little bit of fear in situations where I know I'm screwed e.g. you're in a room, a grenade gets all your teammates in the neighbouring room, you can hear multiple people entering, you have no exit.
     
    I think it's just the nervous anticipation of a shot when you know it's coming.

    UGH this is my number one bugbear with airsoft. One of my local fields does half-day afternoons which I really appreciate, though my ideal would be 10-5 or 11-6 games but I know it wouldn't be popular. Why do you people hate sleep so much!? 😴

    Seth, I think you might have done better with a more down to earth request to talk to someone for airsoft advice and then advance to your project privately rather than this hype attempt.

    i think for me it's people who don't have the basic principles of sportsmanship, particularly:
     
    non hit takers- seriously if you wanna shoot stuff but not get shot back then there's ipsc and the like, just get out of our hobby, get out and don't come back, we don't want you, you're not welcome, i'd continue pointing out how unwelcome godmode is in airsoft but i'd get banned for excessive use of english vernacular. also just because it's friendly fire doesn't mean you don't call it.
     
    overshooters- now there's a line here, we've all fired a burst or follow up shot that's been in the air and connected after the fact, and that's fine. likewise a single close up shot from a pistol does not being a dick make (especially given the general controversy over the bang rule), but i've seen some real poor shows of overshooting in my time and it's not cool, you shoot until you get the hit call and that's that, likewise if you haven't made a decent show of sticking your hand up and shouting hit then expect to get shot at and don't get salty when you get fired at because people thought you were in play.
     
    hot guns- now we can debate all we like what site limits should be, how they should be measured, and what's acceptable, but i have a particular dislike for people who push the limits that are there. what you're doing is making sure you have an unfair advantage. generally i've found that the people running hot guns aren't the ones who stay back and try to conceal it by being sneaky at their unfair extended range but the ones that pop out of a hedge and hose down their opponents at 6 feet.
     
    expecting rules to be in play just because that's what you're used to, this follows into my list of bugbears for a site, but i dislike when players start complaining about a rule that's not in play (the most common one being no headshots) at the site. this is a failure both of the site to explain what rules are in play and the players not bothering to pay attention to the site when they mention it.
     
    i'll not comment on walts, been fortunate to not have to deal with them, although the concept of stolen honour disgusts me.
     
    now for sites, ooh boy i've a few bones to pick.
     
    1. publish the rules, on paper, so everybody is clear. i don't care wether bang rules are enforced, voluntary or banned, i don't care if full auto is allowed indoors or not, i don't care what the fps limit is specifically, but i do care about knowing where i stand so i can at least conduct myself properly.
     
    2. marshall, as in actually do it, have enough staff to walk around the site, look for cheaters, take a pistol and do honesty shots make sure people are calling it and if people are blatantly cheating then get them off the field and if it's persisting then PERMANENTLY BAN THEM, if your marshals are:
    a. checking facebook in-game
    b. standing in a quiet corner having a natter with their mates
    c. responding to accusations of foul play by replying "oh that is bad isn't it" or "nature of the beast mate"
    then you need to either pay them more, or find other marshals
     
    3. chrono properly, read up on joule creep and how to detect it, use the site's ammo don't just trust the word of the player, publish your limits in joules and have all the marshals carrying a chrono, if you get complaints on the field then get them chrono'd right there without giving them a chance to switch mags/twiddle regulators/swap springs or whatever method they've used to cheat the original chrono. i've noted too many sites chrono people just at the start, with 1 gun, and don't seem to care if that same person is spotted later on with a different gun, hell i once went through 3 rifles in 1 match due to mechanical difficulties and nobody challenged me to chrono the second 2. also chrono pistols and not just the co2 ones, i have 4 pistols and my co2 one is the weakest hitting of the lot and i know enough about this game that a tiny pistol can be made to fire as hot as you like.
     
    4. sort out your spawn points, specifically in terms of spawn protection or at least not having games where it's possible to respawn straight into combat, personally i'm an advocate of having non-spawn games (generally zone based) as it naturally eliminates this, but it's as annoying to be spawn camped as it is to try and take an objective with people in the spawn shooting at you.
     
    5. don't have things that "count as hard cover" but actually let bb's through, it really screws with even honest players hit taking trying to figure out what's a legit hit and what just passed through the camo netting that's totally a concrete wall. if the bb hits you it hits you, end of story.
     
    6. no favouritism, if there's one thing that'll get me to never return to a site it's when the regular players are allowed to get away with any of the above just because they're regulars, in particular i've noticed it with hot guns and it ain't fun. you wanna have a game with select people with different rules be my guest but the moment you open things up to the public i expect a level playing field when it comes to application of the rules.
