  1. In the United States, Milsim West runs limited ammo games. Each rifleman gets 500 rounds at the start of the event. Machinegunners are given more. Platoons are re-supplied occasionally throughout the event and ammo can be taken off "dead" players. The limited ammo definitely affects the game play. I was way less likely to take low probability shots when I knew I only had a single spare magazine of ammo remaining. In addition, prioritizing who gets the bulk of the re-supplied ammo becomes a consideration. In general, at least in my platoon, we tried to get a magazine or two worth of ammo to eac
  2. My G&P AN/PEQ-2 also took a dump after working well for only one game. Externally they are robust and look great, but internally the wiring must be quite poor. I found this thread that shows the disassembly process. https://www.ar15.com/forums/ar-15/Take_apart_a_chinese_PEQ/20-375627/
  3. I attached some scrap boards vertically along the studs and then attached the pegboard to the boards. So there's a bit of stand off between the pegboard and the wall itself.

  5. Bren 10 now! If I wanted a normal gun for a normal person I wouldn't be an airsofter.
  6. Its pretty unbelievable the level to which many, fairly large groups of guys are going for MSW events here in the U.S. Sure, there's your odd .MIL person here or there, but a lot of these are civilian dudes who are going above and beyond. Not only are they building very solid impressions, but they are also acquiring the appropriate sustainment gear plus the equipment needed for successful night antics (NVGs, IR devices, etc). I attended Ruins of Saratov in November and our platoon of 50(ish) dudes had 47 guys with NVGs, 1 guy with thermals only and only two guys who had nothing NVG-
  7. Speaking as someone who remembers the "old days" of both airsoft (at least in the U.S.) and Arnie's, there's definitely an evolution that longer term players go through. Definitely reminds me of this somewhat famous graphic from paintball. In general, most airsoft players are in the hobby for a season or two - just a couple of years. The primary demographic of airsofters, in my experience, is the 14 - 18 year old crowd. Kids who are old enough to afford the hobby and who are relatively immobile life-wise. They're usually living at home, finishing their undergraduate education and the

  9. And, in my experience, the level of discourse is significantly higher...
  10. Well, Titleist did get into some legal trouble for shipping ITAR restricted parts to a member of a biker gang in Finland so...
  11. Joined in 2006 and been playing somewhat regularly since then. It is too bad what Facebook has done to many of the great airsofting communities of old including Arnie's but also places like Airsoft Canada and my own local forum. Arnie's was truly a great community back in "the day" with all sorts of characters - TheCrunchBunny, Sledge, Stealthbomber, Magz, MasakariJoe, Titleist, DarkLite, CKinnerly - some of whom are still around. The days of the "Clone Wars" where a new replica was released every month and the forums were filled with people posting the latest build trends (Art of Tactical Car
  12. So the AngryGun version isn't very good then? Where is the C&C version available?
  13. Is that an actual URGI or the AngryGun replica?
  14. I was the one who mentioned via FB that the forum was performing very slowly. My guess at this point is that it has to do with my connection as the forum loads quickly on 4G.
  15. Photobucket decided to kill all of my images. Here's a link to the pics re-hosted.
  16. I'm not sure it's the responsibility of the forum to police transactions between members. Yes, it is undesirable to know that potential scammers might join Arnie's to take advantage of people, but to what degree was scamming a problem in the past? Is the value gained by keeping out a minimal number of scammers worth more than value that would be gained by attracting new members via the commerce section? My local forum was forced to hop from (free) Proboards to a privately funded server due to Proboards' restrictive ToS and our current board has yet to recover. The commerce section is what br
  17. It was sized a bit too large for me. I had to tighten the thing down to its smallest size in order to get it to fit appropriately. The should covers were super tight, but once they were on they weren't going to go anywhere. No idea how the vest is holding up. I sold it quite a while ago.
  18. That is disgusting behavior. What kind of person would you have to be in order to think that blasting some kid in the back at 40 RPS was acceptable?
  19. A Review of the Velocity Systems SCARAB Light Plate Carrier By Gimpalong 5 January 2016 Introduction This review focuses on the SCARAB Light plate carrier designed and released by Velocity Systems in 2014. Based out of Dulles, Virginia, Velocity Systems is best known for its collaboration with Mayflower Research & Consulting in the development of the Assault Plate Carrier (APC). Those familiar with the popular APC platform will find a lot to like in the SCARAB which offers a lightweight, minimalist design, but with some additional features that the lower-priced APC lacks. The
  20. These look like great guns, but I've been holding off making a purchase in light of some of the issues I've seen crop up. Specifically issues with spotty full-auto functionality, poor hop-up function and some body leaks. Granted it seems like some of these issues are user error or reflect the failure of the user to read the manual and Tippmann does offer an excellent warranty. Any word on how well these perform with the CO2 magazines? I already own a Polarstar, so my principle interest in the Tippmann is as a more reliable GBBR compared to other traditional GIM systems like WE, KWA, WA
