Man i havent watched any jackie chan stuff in ages

 

He's surprisingly nuanced and affecting in The Foreigner.  Actual genuine acting, I preferred his quiet scenes to the contractually required action.

Will have to put that on the list, although going by my typical standards that means i might get round to watching it sometime this decade.....

The original Drunken Master is a good flick.  I spent a few years doing silly amounts of kung fu.  Jackie Chan was genuinely good in his first film.  

 

Wish I was the same shape now as when I first watched it...

Bloody good film and yes he’s really good as the bereaved father , and particularly liked Pierce Brosnan as ‘not’ Jerry Adams , cough cough 😉

Oh fuck, what have I done!?!

 

I've just ordered a KWA EVE-4 ICE.

 

Loved the look of it since it was announced last year, so when BZtactical sent me a nice newsletter email** this morning saying that they have them in stock for £245 - I couldn't resist.

 

My missus is gonna kill me. Expect a load of classified ads shortly to pay for the damned thing...anybody want a pair of genuine Peltor Comtac XPs?

 

**the email also had the new pricing for G&G Raiders - £210-£220!! Not BZ's fault - G&G announced a price hike recently, but they are pricing themselves out of the market methinks.

 

@Mr. No_Face Does this make me one of the cool kids now?......probably not.... 🤪

It was £50 from a mate ;)

I am somewhat amazed that my burgeoning armoury hasn't been called out by my wife, I've literally got guns stacked in a corner, and 3 gun cases where I had none before... mostly bought since November last year
I can only assume she's got a pile of recently bought shoes and handbags I don't know about.   (The house overflows with shoes and bags as it is)

Yeah a G&G Raider without a mosfet and a slow-ish trigger response is not going to be competitive against (wait for it... wait for it...) a Double Eagle M9xx
It's a decent gun of course.   I guess a lot of people who don't bother researching on forums, but get to try a G&G Raider as a rental will still buy it.  
Ignorance is bliss!

I'm surprised retailers would even stock no-frills guns at that price, unless... well, unless they can't get anything else, or everybody else is scaling their prices as well. 😟

made-to-order set of magwell-cut grips for a Springfield Pro build. Closest to the real thing I could get here in the UK. 

Should darken up nicely to a deep reddish brown like cocobolo once it gets a few coats of tung oil

Real-steel reference I'm going for. Still waiting on the magwell to get here

Aye,  I've been meaning to grab myself one of these to run as backup. You made a good choice with this one. Same internals as the Ronin series and without the ergonomic flaws. KWA actually listened to the fans and addressed the issue of uneven weight distribution that made carrying them feel more weighty and uncomfortable. You can expect a more than competent rig right out of the box.  

 

You got my seal of approval. 🤙

You may take a seat at the cool kid's table @Speedbird_666
