  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.

      (everything is black minus the combat shirt): Fast PJ helmet, comtact II's, wiley x glasses, pentagon wolf grey combat shirt, emerson gen 3 combat pants, flyye LBT6094 w/ a f*ck load of pouches and what not, hydration backpack, CQC belt, custom kydex holsters for my glock & TRMR's, and a new pair of magnum spider's........ im feeling broke as f*ck lol.

  5. The urge to buy a Tippman this pay day is just too much..........

      gunna wait around until a nice package goes up for sale on here or another forum/facebook group... im too lazy to buy one and then buy & fit new rails and stocks and stuff xD

  6. Any recommendations how to post gas grenades? Will post office be funny if i just tell them its an airsoft grenade inside?

    1. SeniorSpaz87

      SeniorSpaz87

      Do. Not. Say. That. Say its sporting equipment or something. Never should the word airsoft be mentioned, and especially not the word grenade... Also, you need to make it not airtight, so just open the seal on it (depress firing pin and keep it depressed will work

  7. After taking a break from airsoft since undergoing pretty extensive & heavy spine operations. I thought id return to the forum in the run up to me hopefully being able to play again soon. Alright guys??

      Dayum, the series has already overtaken the books then :/ I need to start watching it instead of praying for the next book to be written :D From what I have read they have managed to condense 3 books into 1 series O.o

      That's what I thought, and an actor would onvioulsly say he's dead for good to make suspense.

  12. This is a serious question: But what would business look like for a new full time business in CAD, CNC, Milling, 3D Printing, Laser cutting/engraving and Hydrodipping? I get that it would be very pricey to start but would it be possible & worth it financially as a career?

      Yeah thats a good one to have. Problem is you never know how long you have got a contract for nowadays. If you have the workshop already its worth looking into. Keep your regular work and treat it like a sideline less risk if it doesn't work out.

    3. DEDSEC

      DEDSEC

      Off topic (slightly) but Cpt do you still do your laser engraving? If I remember correctly you did your Glock awhile back and someone's reciever on a GBBR?

    4. ak2m4

      ak2m4

      Cpt, I think given your resources and your love of the sport an excellent idea. I'm constantly asked to provide good quality metal receivers, barrels, rails etc at good prices, CNC'd or otherwise but dealing with the Chinese is tiresome and supply (at present) is short. Of course does come down to being financially viable etc.

  13. This is stupid as sh*t i can tell, but what are sorbo pads and what do they achieve?

    2. clumpyedge

      clumpyedge

      I used a sorbo pad in my VSR (pro) to dull the thud of the piston hitting the piston head and now its virtually silent (on par with a mk23)

    3. Sitting Duck

      Sitting Duck

      Do people need to panic ???

      I strongly think not - it would still be better than stock, aoe corrected and piston hitting a 5mm wall of neo is still better than hitting a 2mm wall of rubber/neo

      but I will start a thread me thinks......

      If you want to cut costs you can buy a 6" square sheet of 70D Sorbothane on ebay for very little.

      I recognised them as the real ones, forgot about ARMA III. My favourite magazines are still Lancer AWMs though, wish they weren't pretty much sold out everywhere and so expensive

  14. Had the opportunity to buy a Echo 1 "vss" for $120 while i was in New York this week, had no way of getting it back home, gutted.

  17. Sounds ridiculous, but could i get an inner barrel that protrudes outside of my gbb glock's outer barrel, and the gun will still be able to fire/function/cycle properly?

      The question is...why? Are you extending the barrel of a pistol in a carbine kit?

    3. CaptainDumbass

      CaptainDumbass

      Basically i want to put an outer barrel or silencer on my carbine kit, its possible and i like how it looks. I thought if i could do that i could extend my inner barrel to potentially increase my range and accuracy or my pistol, kinda turning it into a gbb smg rather than a glock xD

    4. TacMaster

      TacMaster

      That sounds like a pretty cool project :)

  18. Baring in mind all of my new gear is going to be black, do i get a standard black combat set (shirt and trousers) or do something funky like black multicam or kryptek typhoon? Would it look okay/nicer alongside the black vest/helmet/etc, or should i just stick to black?

      CaptainDumbass

      My helmet, vest, glasses, balaclava, pads, pouches, etc etc are all black. Im just contemplating a pattern for the combat set (shirt and trousers).

      Multicam black is so much nicer IMO

      Black multicam is really nice, my mate wears a shirt in it and people are always saying it looks cool.

  19. Scrapping the NSWDG gear :( sad to see it all go but it was getting too pricey and too much hastle. Going back to black but this time concentrating on comfort and practicality rather than looks/style/realism.

      Sold to a mate, it was half complete anyway, allwin combat set, flyye lbt PC and a few pouches and stuff, he was offering a price pretty close to what i would have got if i sold it all separately and im an impatient bastard haha

  20. Anodising a gearbox case... possible???
