  1. I see all your points... I raise you this: https://www.kickingmustang.com/kmcs-ghillie-suit
  2. Petition to lock the thread as it's literally going in circles at this point?๐Ÿ˜ด
  3. From what I've heard, Bear Grylls also likes to take the piss out of Bear Grylls๐Ÿ˜‚
  4. I'd love to do all of that sort of stuff eventually! Getting paid for it would be just be a bonus!
  5. This was more or less my response to the guy at the game day... Once you've gone through all that, there surely is an aspect of having earned the right to make some extra money off of it (some ways more honorable than others). Could go and work for a private security firm doing CP and make a bit more of a living with your skill set, but if you're a family man you may not want to put yourself in immediate danger again so doing something like TV or things along those lines is definitely safer!
  6. I did think this, similar to getting your regiment tattooed onto yourself... Surely doing so would rule you out of certain operations and tasks alike? There is this aspect to it too... To back up this point, every time I look in the comments on their posts on instagram or anything at least 1 in every 4 comments saying how said person has inspired them to sign up etc.
  7. This is more for the ex/serving forces guys on here as I can give a civvies' opinion on this but the more the merrier... What's your guys' thoughts on the above? Someone brought up a couple names of people like this in a thread the other day and also someone, at a game I was at last week, who is just starting basic training for the Army mentioned his particular disdain for some of the more prominent ones due to how public they have gone with their service. On one hand I totally understand his point, but similarly, I don't think it was ever the intention of some of these guys to become massive TV stars (could be wrong, of course)... Motivational autobiography book deal got a bit of traction and all of a sudden they're riding the wave of their own success and it's gone pretty massive. I'm thinking more the likes of the really big names, not so much the small Instagram pages that just post the occasional picture from their time in Afghan with a short caption of what was going on but the ones really making the most of the 'ex-forces' bit in their bio. Thoughts?
  8. I printed this form off when I was getting mine ready... Wrote it all out, took it to the site and asked to get my UKARA sorted. The guy took my little membership card and went over to his computer, put my email in to whatever site they do it on, did a few other bits which I didn't see and then gave the card back and said "all done". I asked about the form and he said he didn't need it so not sure if they just didn't do the whole process correctly or something but I managed to buy my Avalon all ok from Redwolf with my number and I know they check your UKARA number as I tried when I was younger to buy one without and they refunded the order! I'd suggest asking your site if they need it or not though... Wouldn't take my word for it 100%!
  9. I'll see if I can assemble some of my mates and arrange a date ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Update: All sorted. I am idiot. ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. So, I was trying to chrono my p09 earlier and noticed that 1) it was shooting very low power compared to when I used it last weekend (brand new) and 2) when empty the slide would not lock back. I figured perhaps this is because after me using it I had not cleaned the barrel properly (causing low power) nor lubed it properly (causing slide to not come back enough to lock as I had already considered not enough gas to kick it back enough so filled the mag to near full and it still wouldn't work) Anyway, took it apart and gave it full clean in the barrel and wipe down of all the lube and re-lubed and then went to put it back together and now the slide will not allow me to cock it back properly. Bit strange because: If the locking pin is out and the pistol is held at the normal angle as if I were looking down the sights I can cock it fully If the pin is out but I hold it upright as if I were to look down it through the magwell and out the bottom it won't cock back at all (moves about a few mm and then will not budge unless I really yank it and then the whole upper comes back with it (hop unit, barrel etc.) so I can't look down the magwell as nothing opens. If the locking pin is in I can't get anything to move at all no matter how much I'm forcing it (within reason as don't want to break my new pistol(unless I have already ๐Ÿ˜ฅ)) it is also very hard to take apart once assembled with locking pin in I have tried to look at videos of people taking it apart to see if there's anything obvious I haven't done but as far as I'm aware I did it exactly how I did it last time but now it's doing this โ˜น๏ธ Pics of inside the lower and upper below - not sure if they will be of any help though as at this point I'm not sure if there's something specific I should be looking for. Let me know if anyone want's a picture of any specific part that may be of use when trying to diagnose my f*kc up
  12. Someone asked me something like this the other day. Like how in some LARP-y type games an arm hit means you can't use that arm or leg hit means you've gotta hop about etc. etc., so do we do this in airsoft? And this was more or less what I said too... If we tried to implement something like this in anything but a really tight-knit private game it'd just result in everyone trying to justify how because they got hit in the finger that's basically nothing so they can just carry on as they were or anything to that effect ๐Ÿ˜‚
