  1. Downsides to being 6 foot 4.... posted a grenade around the corner at about knee/waist height and get banned from using pyros for the day because it was still too high.... typical hahaha, my bad!

      @Esoterick I've wondered the same thing. The usual reply I get from the shooter when asked if the head shot was necessary is oh it must have been the wind or the hop... (how its windy indoors is a bit of a mystery)

      From a marshals or opposing players view, the waist height of a tall player is pretty high. You said it was knee/waist high, quite a big difference between the two.

      If I were crouched behind the corner your waist height is almost level to my face.

      The mall is sh*t hot strict on hard pyro being knee high only though, for good reason though.

      Playing devils advocate here but if someone decides to crouch down knowing that grenades are posted at knee/waist height then isn't that also down to the person on the receiving end knowing the risks of being that low down? I've been laid down before and had solid state BFG's land on me where they have been posted into the room I was in and knew that could happen... I do agree though that there is a fairly large difference between knee and waist height dependent on your height as well.

    Gun picture thread

    Lmfao just because youve been airsofting once is not a defence. Unless you have a site membership, a UKARA registration, or the rifle youve painted is your dads/brothers/boyfriends/whatever who has one/ that is registered..... buying a two tone gun and painting it black is manufacturing and RIF...... resultantly breaching and violating the VCRA = Illegal.

    Absolute Airsoft (Reading) Review

    I went last sunday. Firstly i would like to say this is no disrespect to any staff at this site. I did enjoy my day and i couldn't fault how f***ing lovely the staff and marshals were. I would like to return and i hope there are no hard feelings about this post. There are just rooms for improvement and then i would 100% consider being a regular player for sure. If this causes offence or concern any members of staff that may see this are free to contact me here to discuss. In my opinion compared to the other local sites in and around berkshire. The day i went (and by the sounds of things other days since its been open aswell), was just run poorly and it was very boring...... Firstly the safety brief covered everything most safety briefs cover, however the lad that explained it was quiet as f*ck. If you werent close to him you couldnt hear him. This could be dangerous for new players or those that may not be familiar with the site. Getting your gun chrono'd was practically pointless. They read your reading and sent you on your way. No tag on your gun or anything. I saw and overheard two lads in the safe zone purposely not get chrono'd because no-one would have been able to tell if they had or hadnt..... This potentially allowed players with hot guns play without being caught. Game briefs were explained very poorly with no indication where certain areas marshals mentioned actually were. I spent a whole game trying to find where a flag was we had to capture. So no-one had an actual clue what they were doing half the time. During game briefs (and i think this f*cked me off the most) players AND MARSHALS found it funny to shoot eachother. Now this happens nearly everywhere i go airsofting and i get it, its banter and it can be funny, but this site took the piss. People would be running around spraying eachother with high ROF guns, shotguns, and even launchers. While this is all shits and giggles there is a time and a place, and during a game brief where people are trying to listen, this was dangerous, stupid and overall annoying. On top of the stupidity during game briefs, someone (i honestly wasnt able to work out who, player or marshal) would set off firecracker bangers, these werent BFG's these were actual fireworks which were even louder than .12g blanks... thats saying something. At one occasion one went off next to someones foot which caused them to fall over aswell as burning their legs. Setting one or two off to scare people is funny, im not a grumpy ass hole i promise. But I dont think i need to explain how annoying and dangerous that was and how the marshalls would encourage it... Set a f*cking example. Moving onto game play We played on the same "map" the entire day which was a pretty open woodland field with no features or anything other than a couple small huts and trenches. While this is great for long ranged combat it felt like we were being picked off by DMR's and snipers all day and those with AEG's and GBBR's had no proper combat most of the day. Compared to the other fields this site had to offer i personally think this was the worst. When i questioned this with a marshal they explained it was because paintballers were also playing that day and they didnt want confusion. While i understand this, it doesnt take a genius to communicate with the paintball company so both airsofters and paintballers could play on other fields while still staying a good distance from eachother to avoid confusion. Hit taking was very good, i didnt once have to question myself whether my shots were falling short or people were cheating or simply not noticing that they were hit. It was a pleasant surprise. Marshals would also occasionally shoot players with their own pistols as a "hit checking" precaution and allowed players to get back into cover and continue playing. This meant everyone was playing fairly and honestly. While this isnt really the sites fault they could have enforced this way more: DEAD PLAYERS DO NOT TALK. On so many occasions people who were dead would walk past me and whisper "theres 3 of them behind that bush they dont know youre here" or just give away information of enemy players positions. Ruins the fun. Team balancing was awful. They put all the rentals and young players on one team with a couple adults (me and my friends lmao) and then all the clearly experienced players with proper kit on the other, i dont need to explain who spent their day pinned in their regen point........ This lead to the majority of my team just walking back to the safe zone in the middle of a game. Even when mentioned to marshals there was no change. The website says walk on is £20 and it includes a hotdog and you can get a pizza for £5 more. I chose pizza and wherever they ordered them for they were 8 short so people had to go without pizza and get food from the paintball kitchen to the same value. Kinda sucks.... Also, this might be petty but at the start of the day i needed my lipo's charged, gave them to the lad in the shop before i even signed in and got chrono'd and he just left them on the side and forgot about them for half the day.... so i had to use my SMG-8 in a woodland site for hours which you can imagine was wank.

    You wouldn't believe how accurate that is! I was booked for the mall that day and my friends f*cked off to Absolute instead so I drove and played woodland instead. Extremely disappointed with that site to be honest. Gunna rock this at the Mall Sunday! Yeah its a clone unfortunately! im not that rich hahahaha. Made by Emerson and honestly couldn't be happier with the comfort of it. Was pleasantly surprised with how well it kept me cool considering it's material.

    Finally built a loadout based around comfort rather than looking tacticool. Apart from running (almost) full black in the sun all day..... Couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

    Best slim line flashlight?

    Looking for a flashlight for the side of my Scar, ideally i want it to look slim line but still be really bright & strobe would be a nice extra but not a necessity. I found this: http://shop.specwarfare.com/night-evolution-neforce-weapon-mounted-led-light And i just wanted to check if there is a light out there that could be better? Cheers
  10. As title says, i just bought myself a Wolverine Inferno Gen 2 and need to find somewhere to fill the bottles i bought with it. Located in or around Berkshire ideally! Cheers!
