  1. I've lost 8lbs in 8 days, because I've knocked off the bad kind of smoking (again, relapse is part of rehab right?) and started eating way healthier - Found out grilled peppers are amazing, and I'm so into State of Decay I keep forgetting to eat.

     

    It's all coming up Milhwag.

    Rehab is for quitters! :P

     

    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'.


  2. Just read this regarding the letter:-

     

    http://globalnews.ca/news/794324/not-a-hate-crime-but-writer-of-autism-letter-already-being-punished/

     

    It does make some interesting and valid points, but it does make me think, that people who can't defend themselves should be protected from those, that have admitted wanting to cause harm. If the letter isn't a hoax, the person who wrote needs to have a sit down with a specialist and work on their anger.

     

    Rant:- this is a first world problem; rant. Too many movies to choose from, just can't decide what to watch.

    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 ;)


  3. 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.


  4. 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...


  5. Its not "cynical" its utterly spurious and callous. Your experience counts for sweet F.A

     

    the letter was received by the grandmother of the child - not the mother. You lack knowledge of even the most basic facts and clearly you have made it up as you went along. Why bother? Can you imagine the anguish that this letter would of caused - and then to accuse the mother. Shameful

     

     

    yeah I mad

    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....


  6. I'm not certain if the guy who makes them is publicising it here yet, I'll find out and get back to you.

     

    Either way they're extremely nice patches, more a cool novelty for me than anything.  But for milisim players/teams at those big games with a lot of NV kit floating about, pretty awesome.

     

    That would be great. Cheers!

     

    Cool novelty is perfectly good for me, I don't play in the dark much... :P


  7. Some pretty sweet IR patches.

     

     

     

    Photographed with active night vision (not mine of course, I'm far from rich enough for that).

     

     

     

    I like that! I like that a lot! :D

     

    Where did you get those made mate?


  8. I've managed to sell my LM4, so last night I took the plunge on (what I think at least) was a damn good deal;

     

    Brand new (Sub<500 rounds, looks retail fresh from the pictures, including the mags) WE KAC Rail'd 14.5 M4, latest gen (3? 4?)

    NPAS Fitted, original box, all tools and bits and bobs.

    5 x Gen 2 mags

    Element/ACM Scoutlight, Replica EOTech.

    All told came to £450 and the Paypal fees - New would have cost me the same money but without any of the accessories, so reasonably pleased on the price, and the chap is dropping it off to me this evening. 

     

    Cheers for the help so far all - Looking forward to getting my mitts on it!

     

    Anyhow, I've got a few more reasonably simple questions..

     

    14.5" Outer barrel, am I correct in thinking it's a 2 piece and thusly can be made 10.5"?

    NPAS adjustment - Assuming I'm looking at the front face of the bolt/nozzle, gas key on top, which way is more power, which way is less?

    Hop system - How necessary is a change of rubber? I use .3's, however I've got .4's which I'd like to try. I've got a game Sunday, so really I'd just like to know if the stock rubber is useable, or needs replacing straight off? If so I'll pop to Wolf or PAS this evening.

     

    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 :P.

  9. Meh, I spent ages singing their praises all over the boards prior to this - I'm not at all saying they're a bad retailer, far from it - I'm merely stating that this minor screwup caused me a ruined weekend, a load of grief as a result of (temporary) money issues, and the desire to not use LWA again :P

     

    I hear ya :P 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 ;).


  10. 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 :P.


  11. 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).
