    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Rehab is for quitters! Good luck with it though mate. Not a decision I've found myself needing to make, but I acknowledge it's not an easy thing to just 'stop'.

    Should get a good lightening show tonight! Even if it is hoofing it down

    I'm always quite torn on this type of thing. Personally I think the police should investigate it fully and as they would any other crime. We can only guess at the state of mind of whoever wrote it, and to be honest, to try is a bit pointless... Simply because of the amount of potential options as it were. Any view we take is based on our own experiences - not theirs, so are pretty much irrelevant. Where I'm torn is on media coverage of it and such like. Sure, it raises awareness and is often a catalyst for debate... On the other hand, it has the tint of a freak show wearing a thin veil of morality. Seconded on the "what to watch" problem

    Oh... Sorry... In my blind rage at this act of casting, I forgot to say.... Superman Vs Batman Have you seen the weather forecast dude?

    Slightly less serious.... Ben Affleck being cast as Batman.... What the *fruitcage* *fruitcage*? Fair enough, Bale was always going to be a tricky act to follow (not a big Bale fan, but he was awesome in the role), but Affleck?? He was as Daredevil, and will be worse as The Dark Knight. It has killed what was already a dubious film for me.

    Come off what? You wrote quite a strong attack on another user (whom I'll point out here, I don't know in anyway), accusing them of commenting without the full facts... Whilst not having any yourself! How do you know they're not absolutely right? That there, is both hypocritical and all things considered, somewhat obnoxious. Even if they're completely wrong, it doesn't really justify the tone you've taken. I happen to see Paranoids point of "self sent" as perfectly logical, and as good a point for discussion as any other. It happens. You getting your panties in a bunch about it, doesn't deflect from either the logic, or merit of the opinion given. I'm fairly sure that noone is suggesting the letter itself has any merit, or justification under any circumstances...

    Then your initial post is as hypocritical as it was obnoxious. Have you considered a career in tabloid journalism?

    At the risk of kicking off a froth fest... Do YOU know the full facts? Are you directly involved in the investigation (although commenting if you are, is probably worse)? Whilst I appreciate your reaction, maybe you need to appreciate people have differing opinions, and are just as free to express them as you? This being a public forum on the internet an' all. Fothing like that tends to switch people off from what you're actually trying to say Just sayin' etc....

    WE XM177, chopped down a bit. Just whacked an NPAS, Angry Gun 6.03 and a Firefy soft in there, and she shoots great

    Ditto. Painfully bad service. I'll not be bothering with them again.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    I saw that one, and thought it was a steal Barrel is 2 piece. Splits down as you say. Npas - If memory serves, it's clockwise (looking at the boltface to lengthen the valve), and drop FPS. Stock hop rubber is ok, but not great (very hard). I've replaced mine with a Firefly Soft - Which I still find overhops a .3 on a minimum setting - but I've not put a lot of rounds through it yet. Gonna try .4, even if it makes my wallet cry .

    I hear ya Everyone screws up now and again. Myself more often than most! Our team "procurement" dude has thrown his toys out of his pram with regards to LWA though, due to the amount of times he gets an email saying an item is out of stock. Usually after said item was supposed to be delivered. Still, like you said... They ain't short of business, and we're not short of retailers .

    Hahaha! I'd forgotten about that.... Or repressed it... One of the two. What the photo doesn't show, is that it was bloody freezing (about -5). So poor 'fodder was a bit chilly in that get up

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    How new is yours mate? WE made the first batches a bit meh, but later ones are all good. A new WE one shouldn't fail on you.... Although 'shouldn't' never means 'won't'

    Listening to AC DC, and not having a weaponised, flying suit of armour. One day.....

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    I'm running an Angry Gun 6.03 with a Firefly soft in my XM177. At 340fps with a .20, I'm still over hopping a .30 slightly. It's straight and level out to about 50m, and then heads slowly up (hop is on about as minimum I can get whilst retaining the bb in the hop). Saying that, I've only put about 150 rounds through this hop, so I'm really hoping it beds in a bid. I don't mind using .40, but the players I'm shooting might .

    Pretty much... Much as I'd like to say "Meh, leave 'em to it", to do so would just create a much, much larger Afghanistan. SNAFU at the end of the day.

    Difficult to get details... Current reports are that they've basically flown over with a chopper, and the door gunner got a bit trigger happy. Seems he took more hostages out than terrorists, but given the nature and fluidity of the situation - Don't quote me on it. Just amazes me, than having been offered international (trained and professional) assistance - and declined.... They're steaming in on their own. No doubt they'll have their hands out for a few million $ to train a force up afterwards (and spend it on solid gold BMWs or somesuch).
