  1. Im law obeying citizen, I think before doing anything .
  2. Mine is .44 separately chamber loaded, e.g. muskets are muzzle loaded, and they are legit here as well. It looks like this: Thanks for the replies, Ill keep it. I bought it years ago, did not shoot it even once, kept it hidden.
  3. I have blackpowder working replica of Colt Navy 1851, with powder, caps, and bullets. Here where I live, you can own such weapon, you can buy it, and sell it. You do not need to register it anywhere, therefore noone knows how many of them are here, and who has one. Since the EU is open, pretty much everyone can come here, buy one, and get lost. I hardly doubt anyone would use them to commit a crime, since they have way to many drawbacks. What if I wanted to sell it to some random British citizen? According to my country rules, that would be legit. Pretty easy to be done face to face, but I found out that UK citizens need Firearm Certificate [FAC] class 1 for such gun. What if I sold it online? Everyone and everything gets checked at the border, therefore I assume it would not get through, the worst case scenario is the fact of the gun being retained. I wonder if I was held liable if the person whom I sold the gun, commited a crime with it.
  4. Regardless of what you think about me, I came here to give you a friendly advice. I bought the vest, and had to return it. PayPal agreed to give me a full money return. I will just point out things in numbers. 1. Photo on eBay is a photo of IOTV [no doubt about it], but not the west that is being offered. 2. By looking at the photo, you might expect a brand new, mint, perfect condition vest, but you get totally opposite stuff. 3. Seller either does not know what is (s)he selling, or is a lier. I asked couple question about the vest, got a positive reply on all, and did not receive what I wast told. 4. Vest is missing a random part [i guess], but [look point 3], if I ask if the vest is complete, and I get a positive reply, that is what I expect. 5. Vest is missing side soft ballistic inserts [look point 3]. 6. Vest is missing yoke + collar [look point 3]. 7. Vest was meant to be a size MEDIUM, and size MEDIUM, means MEDIUM, not meadium LONG, or anything like that. Medium = medium. There is no mention on the offer, that the vest is medium long, other offers however have such info included, therefore it was either a mistake, or... 8. As you can see vest parts differ in color, and overall quality, but what suprised me the most are the female DAPS. That made me think, the vest might be randomly set all together. 9. Kevlar is in perfect condition. 10. Shipping was very fast. To sum it all up. If it was perfect brand new vest, with all the parts, I would keep it, but for that price, is a NO GO. Its a trash. The vest itself is made of cordura 500, that is prone to be easily damaged [look at the holes]. Material is very thin. I rather use my Flyye MTV vest. These vest are quite cheap in the US, but are rare, thats why the price has to go up. The vest cover is meant to be changed from time to time, US vest are NOT made to last, they are made to be changed. The only thing that will last a while are kevlar inserts. http://imgur.com/a/cDZd0 http://www.ebay.pl/itm/US-ARMY-IOTV-IMPROVED-OUTER-TACTICAL-VEST-Kevlar-Weste-OCP-MULTICAM-Medium-/401056364532?
  5. I might* get back to the UK [for some time], but I wonder if I had problems with airsofting being a foreigner without UKARA, or noone/hardly anyone would care? I know there are sites, need to pay for them, two tone guns for teens, and couple other limitations. Mine ASGun is full black, not going to repaint it. I also wonder... if I had problems at the border when trying to cross it, with my army equipment, which is real... at the age of terrorism, suspicious people travelling all around the world. I think someone might have a problem with what Im trying to bring in. British Customs always check everything, after crossing the La Manche/English Channel, luckily I dont look like a Musli, which is +1 for me. * Or not, who knows where will I go, BUT If...

    Solid quality mouse pad available at low price. It has "Gaming" in the name, but its not from one of these "gaming" companies, if you know what I mean. You might get Fellowes Microban, its pretty much the same. Mine got a bit dirty - reasong of getting something "new".

    Taiwangun is a reliable place where you can buy stuff, but on the other hand they mostly offer the cheapest stock available, where lack of quality is often easily visible.

    Does anyone know anything about Zebra Armour?

    Its only available to select a one full color, which would be schwarz [black], you would need to repaint the rest by yourself.

    Prepping for war, thats why I collect uniforms for various terrains and weather conditions, book related to training different tactics, as well as real army equipment. I will most likely die, sooner or later when the bad times come, but I dont think I will fall in the first line, just a bit later. I have a black powder gun at the moment, I wish I could get something modern. Definitely not thinking of food, or medicine right now. The list of must have things is long...

    Thank you, never heard of them before.
  12. Its possible to buy their helmets at: https://bestprotection.de/shop/en/Body-Armour/Protection-Helmets/Combat-Helmets/ I cant find any info about them, the quality, etc. just what is written on the website.
  13. I have LiPo, but I rarely use it, I guess thats why It got swallen, I charged it, and just kept it like that. I heard many people discharge it to prevent such thing from happening. How should I take care of my LiPo? Or other kind of battery? Thank you for the link.
  14. Im not familiar with Vanaras, any links to this are welcome. /Edit. Also, what kind of battery charger, has an option to discharge it? My battery is "swallen".
  15. I dont need ANPEQ for batteries, as a working replica to use it, but ANPEQ for batteries for my AEG to store them there. Just as the ones from link given above, FVC.
