    Airsoft sightings in Movies and TV shows thread 2

    Ahahahaha, guess what. I'm watching a The Division 2 livestream, and they included... APS UAR. Talk about highly realistic military simulation signed with Tom Clancy's name. The man's gotta be spinning in his grave.

    *fruitcage* *suitcase*. I just got feedback from Brussels regarding work stuff, and it turns out that somehow I was able to get three kinds of wrong results using pretty much the same set of IT tools. Don't ask me how it's possible, because I don't rightly *fruitcage* know.

    So I'm on the train home from a buddy's birthday party. Somehow a brand spanking new train partially funded by the EU takes twice the time to travel the other way while a rickety refurbished old POS needed 2,5 hours to get me there in the first place. Not to mention, the surroundings look like Tarkov.
  4. I'm thinking about replacing my JG SL8 carry handle dual optic with something from NCStar - ADO or GEN3 with an ACM flip-up dot sight. What's your take on those? I did hear a couple of horror stories regarding that brand, but I'm a sucker for the futuristic styling of those things.

    That was one bag, now think that the *fruitcage*ers not only settled on the back of the couch, but also in the junction box next to it and must have been there for some time. I had to toss the couch AND the armchairs. Didn't like'em anyways. The bad thing is, I gotta start putting money for a serious renovation together.

    Ugh, had to spend 120 quid on pest control and a hotel room to stay out of the apartment for the night. Because somehow, my flatmate's bed has been infested with bedbugs. That most probably crawled in from the apartment downstairs. I wanted to spend those 120 quid differently!

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    VISM scopes are on Ebay with cheap global shipping. Too good to be true or what?

    I don't understand one thing: S&T M1903 all but evaporated from Hong Kong shops and turned up in EU shops with a 50% markup. This pretty much ruins my shopping plans.

    Airsoft Glock Flux Brace clone, stop the presses!

    And let me guess, all the lawyer-friendly NotGlocks from APS, KWA and whoever else are mostly Gen3 based?

    Can you stop being an idiot? Titleist was a member of this forum, who was convicted of shipping ITAR-restricted firearms accessories without a "license". And while I can understand that particular piece of legislation covering secret squirrel Tier 1 milspec gear, I find restrictions on airsoft/airgun scopes or Bubba toys like the Flux Brace not only bonkers, but *badger*s. If even Brownell's can't, much less Evike, do you really think that the bureaucratic machine will yield to an even smaller company? Reality check, people. What we're seeing here is the Chinese gleefully undercutting the profits of small American companies with the tacit approval of the military-industrial complex American government. You can get a genuine milspec holographic sight without problems in this anus mundi, provided you have 'bout 600 quid to spend on it, and from a local store no less, but somehow, you cannot buy a $60 airsoft scope from an airsoft store in the US. A scope that would probably fail the first, best case maybe second test for military specifications and the only difference between it and dime-a-dozen Chinese you can order from Hong Kong or even AliExpress (so, China directly) is that it was designed and manufactured in the US. So while I can figuratively scream at Flux "HERE'S MY THREE HUNDRED BUCKS, TAKE IT, PLEASE!", neither of us is in position to do anything about it. This is called "arbitrary unavailability".

    I'm sorry, which part of "WE DO NOT SELL OR SHIP OUTSIDE THE USA" you don't understand? It's not about the price, it's about the absolutely laughable arbitrary unavailability. You basically cannot buy any firearm accessories made in the USA thanks to military-industrial complex's *rickroll* waving, nothing else. And if you want to convince me otherwise, my reply is one word: TITLEIST.

    I remember waiting 40 minutes for a bus that didn't show up in a snowstorm. Downtown.

    So many cool new replicas coming out, and I'm broke like a joke. That, and I again have the urge to do A Thing, I don't know what A Thing is, I just went through making a nice slideshow for the "Be Right Back" screen for my livestreams involving my old photos and all I know is I need a lot of gear, elbow grease and helping hands to have more.

    Airsoft sightings in Movies and TV shows thread 2

    I'm catching up on The Expanse Season 4, they do have those there, along with those WE G26s with thingers bolted on them (G26 Advance was it called?), they have half-and-half black and tan SL8s (ironically enough carried by the oppressive militia commanded by a British psycho) and those AEGs that look like straight from the new XCOM games, XR-something.
