    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    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.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint looks so pretty on the RTX that I almost forgot there's barely anything to do in that game.

    So I ordered an used office monitor (from a Dell office desktop) that was supposed to have a DisplayPort input, the only kind my new video card can work with for a secondary screen. I picked it up from the courier yesterday, cracked the parcel open today... The *fruitcage* moron sent me an older monitor with only VGA and DVI inputs, despite the description stating it had a DisplayPort. So I demanded a refund. What did the moron do?! He had the gall to ask me if I want a replacement. I took it as a personal insult. Either he's dumb and dishonest, and still he assumes I intend to deal with him again? Before he even contacted me, I already ordered another monitor, precisely listed on the local auction website, model number and all, for just 2 quid more.

    The local plushie lunacy is how I learned it. People were ordering whole sets on AliExpress and flogging them on the local auction website.

    Umm, you do realize that you can get them on AliExpress? That, and we have that exact plushie lunacy over here as well, it's a scam so stupid that people on the internet deride it, and you know how stupid people on the internet are.

    So I blew 600 quid worth of Christmas bonus and savings on a computer upgrade, and it turns out that (apparently because of having them 50 quid cheaper than the next one) the store ran out of RTX 2070Supers (meanwhile, the next store was flogging the pre-Super 2070s for 360 quid, 40 off the original price). So now I'm waiting for the delivery to arrive next week, and that after having to buy a new PSU and a beater secondary monitor with a DP input.

    Makarov or Tokarev TT-33?

    I don't think you have much choice, between two Makarovs (WE's double-stacker PMM and KWA's PM) and either one or two TTs (WE and SRC). WE got much better since their abysmal early 1911s, so if you get their products, it'll be serviceable.

    P320 isn't even good. But then, hardly any firearms do more than 20 damage before upgrades, I tend to use either M1911 or Springfield XD because they hit hard and take suppressors.

    Isn't his default sidearm a P226R?

    Looking for a good threaded barrel for a G17

    There's something called a "S.T. Simth Silencer" that should work with the WE Glocks, as it includes a 11 to 14 mm adapter for WE threads. The old SOCOM silencers also have the thread part narrower, so you have about 8mm of clearance.

    Ugh. Turns out I could get a Dboys K98K with a scope (similar scope setup to the G&G version) for $170 before shipping, but I don't like that "scope in the middle" setup. But, S&T has just released a new version of their M1903A3 springer, and I found a very nice low-profile RIS mount for it (doesn't look like a RIS after you put the rings on)... But I'm broke.

    Custom Gear

    Yeah, that'd be the one. I found it while searching for an airsoft AUG 9mm conversion.

    I'm afraid the shops will run out of Snow Wolf K98K before I gather the funds. Not to mention finding a working scope mount...
