  1. It's to do with head size, so width rather than length of forehead to ears. I wear the small ones. The only difference in these from the regular ones is the lenses has SH on the lens, rather than just S. Large frames/lenses only have one "nose notch" rather than the two notches that small and regular frames/lenses have.
  2. They look legit to me (same as mine). However they are at best "good as new". They have been removed from their packaging and bring sold by a person, rather than a shop.

    Ear Shot

    I've been shot in the ear lobe a few times. Was pretty nippy and a little blood but not awful. Lower stomach, knee cap and throat are the bits that I find hurt the most. Fingers would probably be on the list, but I wear bike gloves that have hard bits in the fingers so the BBS just skip off them 😁
  4. This would be enough for me not to play at a site that allows that sort of eye pro on field of play. Ben might not care too much about his eyes and the massive gaps around those glasses. But I can tell you I would feel absolutely horrified if my shot was even possibly one that mushed an eye.
  5. I get so sick of the non-hit taking by a few select players now that I simply don't even bother shooting them any more. I just move and pick another target. There are way more important things to get wound up over in my view! Most players I have found start behaving themselves after a quiet word and/or a few test shots from Marshalls. As for making a gun hot after being chrono'ed. They should be sent packing if found out in my view. That is a deliberate and thought out action on their part to get around the safety rules. No accident or mistake.
  6. Lol I had not even thought about a press/reporter loadout 😅
  7. Ahhhahahha I think processing photos is time consuming enough 🤣
  8. Thanks for the tips, those photos have given me a good few ideas for next game day. Thanks very much 🙂 The most processing I do on 95% of my photos is simply adjusting the levels/curves. I enjoy taking photos, but processing them all to a high degree is something I'm not going to spend lots of time doing unless I start getting paid for it! (which is totally not my aim, photography is a hobby for me.) There are a select few photos that I may process differently. Usually because they are screaming out for it. For the non facebook people who fancy a wee look, until I find something better - https://photos.app.goo.gl/zsss6EJvoPQzbr3b9
  9. I didn't have a hi-viz for about 50min. The amount of players who thought my camera was a gun and started shooting at me was simply amusing 😅 Not only does it mean I get hit a lot more, but it is frustrating for players if they think I am not take my hits... I'm sticking with wearing hi-viz. A Lumix GX7. Using either my prime 25mm lens or 45-200mm lens. No perspex or anything covering them. I don't see the point in spending good money for glass to then shoot through perspex. I'm "protecting" the camera by trying to stay out of direct fire, and keeping the lens hoods on. (I do also have insurance, but I'd rather not have to use it) Generally outside shots I leave on auto with "colour and brightness" adjustment. These turn out pretty much spot on in most cases.very bright sunshine being the most common annoyance.Inside shots I usually end up turning to shutter priority. Totally expect to get shot a few times. But being "in the action" often means I am then in front of someone's "perfect shot". Which understandably is frustrating.
  10. Urgh that sounds so frustrating. Hope they get it sorted quick for you if you send it back.
  11. Hmm... That could be something I could do! Take the best handful from a days shoot 😊
  12. Totally understand that. A few months ago I would have put them on Flickr. But since Flickr limits free accounts to 1k photos and more than doubled the price of pro, I've fallen out with them! If you have any suggestions of a better photo sharing platform, pass on the info.
  13. Cheers guys. I'll give the panning thing a go next time @Druid799. I've done it when taking photos at the race track. I definitely need some practice at it though. Out of the 300-odd shots at the weekend I took. Around 80-90 of them are good enough to post in my eyes 😆 I do love the burst mode on my camera. I tend to wear hi-viz and don't get shot too much. Normally it's by the hire guns I've found. I would rather be playing @ImTriggerHappy, but I much prefer breathing 😅
  14. Good point! I can honestly say I've never asked anyone to stay still for a shot when playing a game, that would really irritate me too 🤣
  15. And before you say it, yes I searched, yes I found topics 4 years old. I've read them (and maybe got some tips), but would rather a more up to date point of view. The past few months I've not really be fit enough to play airsoft properly. I've taken photos at a few games days at my local site before, so rather than miss the day completely , I'm thinking of taking my camera shooting instead of my aegs ! I find I prefer using a long lens and stay on the outskirts of play. Not only does this mean I am less likely to get hit, but it gives me a wide range of people to photograph, and I can more easily move around without getting in someones way/cross fire. Pictures are here if you fancy a look - VSA Game Day 31/03/19 VSA Game Day 06/01/19 Players, what annoying things do photographers do when you are playing? As player myself I think I do my best to not give away peoples positions or get in the road of your shot, but I wonder if there is anything else I am possibly doing that can be classed as annoying. Photographers, any tips? I've now got a polarizing lens, so hopefully a lot less over exposure shots when the sun is out
  16. Welcome! For sites near Glasgow, The Depot is my first choice. Fantastic and well run place to play CQB. Most lower mesh face masks work well, so long as they are the "two strap" kind rather than the ones that only have one strap for over your head. If you are getting a helmet, then you can also get them to clip onto the sides of it, rather than over your head.
  17. I got G&G green bb's once. They were possibly the hardest bb's to see when playing outside 😂 A number of decent manufactures do pink ones I believe...
  18. No problem @Sitting Duck, just glad you are doing ok. Family definitely comes first, and everyone does stupid things every so often. Well done for taking the time to fix things rather than give up. Take care!
  19. As above, hop rubber and nub are good to try first. Could possibly be the hop working itself "off"? So the arm/wheels are too loose.
  20. The only barrel I've had to replace has been on my most expensive AEG (the Aps/Evike Falkor Defence Recce) The cheap barrel in the wasp has been spot on, same as the nicer looking one in the viper so far. I can't really fault G&G's at all. Out the box both of mine have performed fantasticly. With a flat hop they rival most stock/badly tuned snipers. The only problem I've had with my G&G in nearly 2 years is the small spring that moves the trigger contacts back snapped. So it got stuck on continuous full auto or safe.
  21. For the hops, it's surprising in that they both perform pretty much the same as far as I can tell. One just looks better. For an extra £100 or so, I can't help but wonder if all the extras are simply looks, rather than bits that give better real world performance. On paper yes, the more expensive one should perform better. But in reality, I don't see a difference.
  22. Yup, but when £14 quid of hop rubber looks pretty much the same as £3 hop rubber. Airsoft prices can be meaningless 😋
  23. So I was putting a flat hop in my new G&G TR16 when I notice just how different the internals are compared to my Wasp (G&G GR16)! On top is the wasp - retails around £130 Bottom is the TR16, retails around £250. Anyone else seen such obvious quality improvement in two guns that are essentially the same, but one is more expensive?
  24. Welcome ! @ToGGoT and possibly @Smooth_Operator might be able to recommend shops local to you. I'd recommend renting for the first few games to get an idea of what you like. Ask people at games about rifs you like the look of. Most love talking about theirs 😆
