they chrono all guns including pistols at Battle Lakes. I've had bleeders from sub 350fps guns, all depends where they hit as to how hard it hurts! :-)

 

Do they still insist on Chronoing on 0.2g BBs though? As that's less than ideal for factoring in joule creep.

Yup but until recently that has always been the way..... And is generally the way insurance companies require.

Sounds like he could have been firing hot too. Did they chrono at the start?

They did, but noticed that they weren't marking the rifles if it was under the limits. Easy for someone not to have their RIF chrono'd.

Hot or Not, which obviously is hard to prove after the event, the MED issue is pretty serious, as even if the guys gun was "legal", we could still be talking about 500fps.

i play airsoft for what it is, & don't succumb to the hype I.E. better kit makes you a better player, or "I've got a YouTube channel with X amount of followers, therefore I'm a lej" bollocks, if "stinky butholio" or whatever exaggerated mgs name he's given himself is failing to follow the site rules, & clearly enough people think so, then the site staff need to get a grip ;)

Yeah nowhere I’ve been mark guns, but a few places do chrono on entering the field from the safe sone at the start of the day,

I've seen a couple of sites stick a small coloured cable tie on the trigger guard after chronoing, & the colour changes each gameday ;)

re the MED incidents, that was myself (hit in the back from no more then 20m by leaf ghillie sniper with srs) and then our pal Nathan who took headshot - again from less then 20m...  and this was by the same fella..  effing hurt and left a nice mark.. I called the guy out on it but didn't get an acknowledgment - could have easily got me with his mk23 from that range but whatever -  I called Marshal over who confirmed he was too close and pulled him on it and its after that he did the same to Nath?! .. anyway, as Bill said in his review, we got our sweet revenge.. haha :ph34r: boooya!

 

this is all very small sh*t though on an otherwise great day and well looking forward to going back to Battle lakes again.... top site.. Apocalypse next

Battle Lakes is an awesome site, the players play well and fair, the marshalls always act on reports given to them. Generally those that play there are of a higher caliber than a lot of the other sites I've played at. I hope folk realise that this was an out of the ordinary situation? :-)

Yes mate, we only did half a day as we weren’t exactly feeling it. The people and the marshalls were great, just didn’t think the site was all it had been hyped up to be.

 

And after lying in the snow for 20mins I didn’t have much inclination to go back out there.

 

If your ever come north of the river for a game, give us a shout as we are bound to come along for a laugh.

BattleLakes. Like I say, the players, Marshall’s, safe zone, food were all awesome( wouldn’t expect anything less from Zed Adventures), just the site I didn’t think was as amazing as everyone makes it out to be.

 

Think I have been spoilt with some really great sites.

ahh fair enough, I guess horses for courses, I thought it to be an awesome layout once you get your head around the map. I love the freedom to roam and flank folk so it surprises me that you didn't gel with the map.

Your not wrong. The layout is a bit bottlenecked, no matter what you’ll end up at a position that’s difficult to advance on. Don’t get me wrong, our snipers had a field day, but that was one of the issues.

 

I managed to get into a bush and Mk23 5 guys, before someone just came in bushwhacking, full auto on all the bushes and peppered me at less than 4ft. If he’d opened his eyes he would have seen me; I’m not exactly small or discrete.

 

Also, travel to there from mine was over 90miles, don’t think I’ll be heading back anytime soon.

Haha think we have our wires crossed fella as I thought you were going Apocalypse! No wonder I couldn’t find you haha

 

yeah the snow was grim wasn’t it mate, was freezing our n*ts off waiting around for first game to begin....was the longest site rule/game briefing I’ve ever listened too! We stayed till around half 3 then chipped off quickly as the snow started coming down hard! Literally couldn’t tell if the bb’s were hitting their targets in the end.... 

 

site was alright tho, quite big with free roam like at battle lakes which was good. Buildings/villages were decent enough with towers etc which made assaulting a challenge. 

That is the shame with battle lakes that it has no buildings or fortified positions to defend or attack. Also some mechanised transport would make games more interesting... one of the games we did at apocalypse involved defending a pickup whilst it made its way through the woods whilst it dropped bombs off at various locations... it couldn’t move unless 4 players or more were defending it... enjoyed that one..... safe zone area was better then battle lakes as there were plenty of raised covered wooden tables to put you gear on..... hot food good too.

 

yes mate we are always on lookout for new decent places to go so may well come up to you area in future... what’s the best ones near you mate?

 

looking forward to uk vs USA at dogtag in May! A long weekend of pew pew and beer!
