  1. No wonder hes beating you he could probably give John Wick a run for his money. Thanks for the turn and shoot idea I'll add it to the list
  2. Just looking to see if anyone knows of any pistol/rifle 'drills' that you can do with RIFs in a smaller space such as a garden. Have a few already here but looking to see if people have some others they wouldn't mind sharing? I dont mean things that help increase accuracy etc just little 'mini games' almost like these. Thanks
  3. Got the Cyma thompson and love it. Use it when playing outdoor if the weathers absolutely shit or if the barrel falls off my CM16. Its great for what it is and is even more accurate than both mine and my friends CM16s which was surprising. I was lucky and got it off TG really cheap last year, but well worth the money. Its been battered around, dropped and covered in mud and still works perfectly, although it does have a habit of shooting two or three BBs even when in single shot if it gets a bit too wet.
  4. As others have said best bet is if on your own just use youtube for basics or get a few friends and have a dry run of the basics together (obviously without RIFs). You'd be surprised how much you can learn without needing to use your RIF, just learning simple communications & movements with friends will do you good. I'd be weary of the courses as often times as others have said its someone who doesn't know anymore than you, its just they've watched Black Hawk Down a few more times, have thrown in a military sounding title and some black cammies > voila, tactical airsoft advisor. Edit - If you have friends with pistols and a garden that people can't peer into/neighbours that have been informed etc you can do some quite fun pistol drills at home. Example being get a youtube video such as this, colour code targets and give specific drills to specific numbers IE 1 > fire 1 bb & reload, 2 dont fire, 3 > shoot 2 bbs. If youve got some friends with you it makes a good competition, we just use folding garden chairs as the targets and stack them against a bench. Another fun one is write up some random colours, stick 8 in a circle on 2 sticks then have your back turned and have a friend call out a colour target, you have to turn, scan and shoot the right one ( can do a trick call and say a colour which isnt there). Again fun little competition. I usually find drills on this youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePrwAQ4GQmY&t=620s&ab_channel=GunTalkMedia, no idea if there is a drill in the video but they usually have SWAT/Rangers [insert US military branch here] on there walking civilians through CQB tactics with different firearms.
  5. Out of the ones you mentioned, which would you say are best for price?
  6. Don't suppose anyone knows if there are some dummy SEM 70 radios/backpack radios of the like knocking about anywhere? Not the dummy 152's etc but the big buggers. Ask because I've just seen this lolhttps://www.zerooneairsoft.com/products/Element_H-250_Military_Phone_fits_iCom_Double_Pin and am tempted to get it for the uv-5r

  7. Its when you hear the "5.56 would have torn through those leaves!" yes but we're not playing with real ammo are we otherwise I think there wouldnt be an issue with the hit calling 😂
  8. Does anyone know of some decent airsoft channels where the people videoing dont have insane RIFs, just your average joe equipment/rifs?

      Check out @GAMBLE.

      He has a down to earth tube channel which is worth a watch.

      Don't know the link but @Brophydoes.

      Hi @Shamal 👋

      Thanks for the mention! 🔫😎👍

      Hi @JamesAirsofterAgent 👋

      Have a browse and see if it’s decent? 🤞

  9. One of the marshalls at Bristol has a shame bell on their phone that they use, if you're still faffing when its brief time then shame on you...
  10. Yep had it a few times where we'll turn up at 8am as advised, then first game starts at 11:30...............
  11. Why people need in excess of 1 hour for a lunch break at a game day. Adult players who get angry when younger/new players are confused or maybe staying a little behind so they dont get hit as much. I don't get what they gain from shouting at these newer players to push up while they themselves, in all their gucci gear, are the furthest back. But most of all, people who pre-fire the hell out of CQB like its CSGO. Pet hate of mine, don't understand what they really gain from it other than looking like a knob and using a load of ammo/gas. Luckily it seems to be mostly a stateside thing, along with their bang bang rule.
  12. CQB Yes as I really enjoy using my pistol (KJW M9 GBB) and dreamed of owning it for about 5 years, so any chance to use it is a yes yes yes. I dont think it provides too much advantage over anyone using a cqb rifle setup, if any but it does feel awfully nice especially when reloading (even though 90% of the time my 'tac' reload involves me fiddling about trying to open the velcro, and put the mag in for what seems an eternity)
  13. In my quest for an affordable WW2 Bolt Action rifle I think I'm going to have to force myself to like the K98...😕

    1. strykerles


      If ytou don't mind something that will need work then patrolbase has a mosin in the boneyard section along with some gas Kar98s

    2. AK47frizzle


      I want the gas ones but they only hold like 8 rounds per mag and the co2 ones are 8g cartridges instead of 12g... don't fancy a spring one either. G&G k98s are known to suck ass.

    3. Druid799


      True it only holds 8rds BUT it’s bolt action , and as we all know in airsoft bolt actions really are only of any use as a sniper so shouldn’t really matter ? 

  14. That sounds absolutely amazing so props to whoever came up with it, definitely adds a unique dynamic to a game.

      Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to get it by the looks of things, everywhere I looked that sells in the UK has archived it and if TG doesnt ship to the UK my M1903 dreams are scuppered. Time to look for another WW2 bolt action...

      They will be resuming at some point in the future; nobody know when, not even them :(.

      I am hearing that PB are acting as an import agent for them at the moment, but no idea on how that works.

  15. Thank you both, you've been incredibly helpful. Personally I'm quite interested in the ham stuff as I know my grandad is also. I've signed up for the 3 week Essex ham course so I can learn what's required to pass the amateur exam and get the 27 pound license, so that shouldn't be an issue. I think I might go for the 8w version as mountain biking we do get quite split up if it's a longer trail with everyone going at their own pace. Just got to convince my friends to get it now and do the course so they have the knowledge too 😁 Thanks both for the help
  16. Time to research improving the CM16 and hopping my butter fingers dont fuck it up

      Indeed, Maple Leaf rubbers can be long lipped. You might get lucky, or not. My Specna Arms feeds fine off its own mags with its own hop unit and a Maple Leaf, but doesn't like any other mags - I've been meaning to give it a little trim.

      I actually think it is more to do with the barrel more than anything. If I swapped to my default barrel it seems okay. I know people say that AK hopups are more of a pain.

      I'll second the above advice.   I think that the 16 is a good rif to start tinkering with.  It's so easy to break down that feeding issues are soon fixed.  

  17. Hmm ok is there really a reason to go with the more expensive of these two? Or should I just go for the cheaper one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Baofeng-Distance-Amateur-Earpiece-Headset-Black/dp/B07X6T4HPM/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Baofeng-UV-5R-Range-Amateur-Radio-Black/dp/B07MW2L24Q/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=uv5r&qid=1631653671&qsid=257-9071435-8948420&sr=8-3&sres=B07MW2L24Q%2CB07X6T4HPM%2CB0834NFCLX%2CB08M5G7JZJ%2CB00YC375ZE%2CB08884JFPB%2CB08J7K5TKS%2CB082D2CKD6%2CB09BC4KZPD%2CB088HHNPXS%2CB08YNQLWW4%2CB014NNKF8Q%2CB07D4FKQHG%2CB01K1TO2DU%2CB06XC58MT2%2CB008RZ0F0K&srpt=TWO_WAY_RADIO
  18. Just bumping this to see if people had a more recent view/review of the site? I really like the idea of there being no scheduled breaks as one of my pet peeves at airsoft are the 1-1.5 hour lunch breaks and 45 minute 'tea' breaks throughout the day.
  19. This definitely, theres often bulk deals around of 10/20 low cap mags that you can split with friends and it makes it a lot more interesting
  20. USB Cable if we go for the UV5R will most likely be thishttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Baofeng-Programming-Compatible-BF-888S-Contains/dp/B09248RC78/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=baofeng+programming+cable&qid=1625576366&sprefix=baofeng+progra&sr=8-4 With regards to frequencies I, I have not, I dont even really know how setting them up would work, the only radios I've ever used you just selected a channel and spoke. Beat shift, I don't believe the UV5Rs have it but then again I'm not too familiar with what it is.
  21. Have you ever had any issues with water damage? Whenever we play it seems to piss it down with vengeance.
  22. Thanks both, one of my locals is Spartan Airsoft woodland, just wanted to make sure there was no risk of us somehow messing up and getting on the local airport frequencies or something
