  1. If you drive you know they do games in Wales right?
  2. Nice work! we should have a camp out or something!
  3. Its the initial layout and finding a decent defender! I can get a pretty decent built T5 for the price people want for a defender! Im happy with just doing what im doing at the moment, the camper is a dream which wont be a quick decision. you have the land rover now right?
  4. If you do end up buying let me know as I found it works out cheaper buying from a 3rd party.
  5. Yeah I shopped about for a while and self build is by far the best way to considering some of the prefab ones I've seen dont start any lower than £45k!! Yep tried it in the garden with the full tarp set up the other evening and by far the most comfortable sleep Ive had, will be going out in thetford at some point and the lake district for a proper outing soon but so far so good! I went for the complete set up including under blanket as I wanted as much comfort and heat retention as possible (knowing what english weather is like) I've taken a lot of hints and tips from varying youtube videos to get what I think now works as a perfect set up (for me) this is by far the best channel Ive found for useful information https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbTDXDBHApa_cvcOx86yJOA
  6. Funny you say that I have been looking at getting a VW T5 or similar to convert myself, Brother works for a company that does van instillation so if i did get stuck not like id have an issue sorting it and could be so much cheaper doing it myself.
  7. Not airsoft related really but could be used for milsims I guess if the AO is anything like the trees etc. but I just got myself a full DD hammocks set up so I can concentrate on my other hobby which is bushcraft and wild camping. *not my picture but you get the idea
  8. Funny she doesn't even use them in her own kit, she uses the ones from Kydex Customs NLD (I think that's what they are called, based in Europe). Ask her how much she likes short dots as an optic.
  9. Morph suit... a sports cup and belt rig is all thats needed for airsoft saying that gimp suits work well if you want to sweat some unwanted pounds off
  10. Hit is a hit. A certain someone got called out because the leaves on his tree suit were getting hit and he didn't call it. If you're wearing it, its attached to you're body or even grazes you regardless of where it does its a hit. Yes sometimes people don't feel the hit (usually because they are wearing way more shit than they need) but its still a hit. Ive lost count of the amount of n00bs that will turn up in full osprey kit and wonder why they get complaints all day because the 50000000000000000000000 layers of cordura they are wearing makes it nigh on impossible to feel anything (not to mention it looks shit).
  11. In fairness though with some of the places available to play range isn't everything, so power is actually the least of my worries on some platforms. For the vast majority of times I play 30/40m is the distances I would be shooting so give me an under powered gun with the accuracy I need and I'm completely happy. Guess its weighing up the factors of distances of where you play and what you want out of the gun.
  12. Grinds my gears when people come to the chrono and start harping on about their gun being 349.9 and how amazing it is because its right on the limit. BULLSHIT the site limits are NOT a target they are just a limit, plenty of guns that are way under that can shoot a hell of a lot better which is proven the higher powered gun cant hit the side of a barn door later with their close to the limit RIFS. Power is only one of many factors that make a gun shoot well, try telling matey who brings his 5 different guns to the chrono that he's worked on himself... one doesn't even feed, one doesn't get more than 3ft and two shoot every which way but straight.
  13. He could in theory buy a RIF without any of your info other than the code Nope Might teach you a lesson not to leave important information laying about that someone else can use.
  14. Ah... that explains the shit-ness of you're parcel being lost then, If I could go the rest of my life not having to deal with DHL I'd die a happy man.
  15. Is UKMail a subsidiary of someone else? Not seen anyone use UKMail in a few years (and I am a buying whore). Only person who I used to get stuff from with UKMail was the odd bill coming through.
  16. I'm clean shaven and taken more than my fair share of hits to the head. It's all part of the game. Shit happens. It's my choice not to wear a hat or whatever on any given day so I accept im going to get at least one or two to the noggen! I lost a tooth a few years back from a totally avoidable situation both on my part and the guy that shot it out, few swear words were muttered specially as the guy laughed about it and gloated to his mates about it within earshot.
  17. What made me laugh, when I questioned the marshal on it he said he didn't see it and did nothing to quell the situation and just laughed it off. The guy needed bringing down a peg but alas I guess some people just don't have the gusto to be out spoken like I am. I suppose working as a marshal makes it difficult to not say something when you see something you know is inherently wrong. Fully agree with you that people don't seem to have as thicker skin as they used to. It surprises me sometimes the age range of people who moan the most about stuff but then again some is also justifiable. It is a bit lame that people cant just stick what is for the most part simple instructions and rules and not get bent out of shape when things don't go their way but that happens in all walks of life and not just airsoft.
  18. Not 'arf! If you could hear half the stuff I hear on a regular basis just following players or over hearing things while gearing up I don't think they could give out Darwin awards quick enough.
  19. Ive had one or two days recently that have made me want to not bother anymore. I'll tell you for why... Considering we are supposedly a big group of like minded people I don't think I've ever come across a bigger bunch of man babies, back stabbers and out and out arseholes in all my life inside and outside of work included. Now I'm not saying everyone is like that but the last two games I have been to I could have quite easily fucked it all off by lunch and gone home. I don't know whats happened to people but I've noticed a steady decline in the behavior of people recently and cant quite place my finger on what it is. One example... Guy takes off glasses in game area with someone shooting right next to him (I mean fully takes them off and is wiping them, I turn see it and say something along the lines of "mate, put your glasses back on do you want to lose an eye" Marshal is standing next to him doesn't bat an eyelid, glasses guy turns to me and says " what are you my mother, how about you fuck off" alright mate.. potentially lose the eye, doesn't affect my life but will affect yours. There seems to be an upsurge in snowflakey people making issues out of something so small that doesn't even warrant the reaction its given and again I cant quite figure out why. Go back 3/4 years ago there was still bickering and what have you but nowhere near as much shit flinging as there is now. Having said that I guess the only real reason I still play and will continue to do so is because of a solid bunch of guys that I get out with fairly often, only issue is we tend to stick to sites we know and know what to expect so I guess we play it safe to an extent so we know we are almost guaranteed a good game day.
  20. Yep, thinking of doing the same ?
  21. Or they are just repeating crap they have also learnt from other varying sources and not found out for themselves.... Serving people would obviously get bad knees from the weight, were talking airsoft here where people are hard pushed to wear the gear they own for any longer than 6 or so hours (even milsims I would say the same as people slope off for food, drink etc). Me personally, I have a set and I also have quite bad sciatic pain (again this is me personally) since getting a set and running them in my plate carrier its helped with the issues as my PC actually sits where its supposed to and is more evenly balanced after having a long hard look at where and how I had set up the externals, pouches etc. Yes, training plates aren't for everyone but as @BibbsOnTour mentioned they come in varying weights from 1.6kg upwards (and judging by majority of airsofters who carry way to much unnecessary shit anyway people can hardly talk about carrying to much weight). People actually thinking about their kit and setting things up right would barley notice any difference. hell I had a guy this weekend adamant he was taking three guns out to each game, two of which... guess what... stayed by the spawn the whole time. This ^ Instead of bashing the people that do have them or want to run them in whatever weight they choose why not be productive and ask questions about them and what benefits they have found from using them, again yes armed forces wear plates. They also do a lot of other things that airsofters don't do, like tab for insane amounts of hours in blistering heat not only carrying plates but ammo, weapons systems (that are a lot heavier than airsoft guns in most instances), water, radios, food, med kits.... the list is pretty long, so while I appreciate the weight of plates is adding weight to you i would hazard a pretty fucking big guess its not just the plates that would account for knee issues within the military... happy to be proven wrong if plates are the sole reason for bad knees.
  22. When its hot I cant stand eating things like chocolate hence I go for the sugar supplements from the water mixtures. I tend to suffer a fair amount from fatigue if I don't and cramping so I guess it works for me. I know a few people that also do the same and swear by it but I will take what you have said on board as a seasoned professional in your field 😗
