    Lets face it, neither of you have ever met a woman, much less managed to lure her back to your scabby student lairs to procreate. All you do is sit in your bedroom on your computer. Fact. I can say this with confidence, no longer being a student and having joined the real world. Ben.

    I thought they did have small armouries, but if you're organising a cruise around somewhere like Somalia, you'd think a .50 cal here and there wouldn't go amiss... Ben.

    That website is pure comedy gold. Ben.

    It's more them arguing legally that they're not at fault. That sucks. Ben.

    Seriously though, well done that man with the deckchair! Imagine your mum and dad going on a cruise they've spent half their working lives saving up for, and end up being shot, hit by shrapnel, and boarded by pirates, and THEN the cruise company has the gall to claim it wasn't legally their fault, and settles out of court for a ludicrously low sum. Ben.

Ok, so the first thing that I don't get is why people insist on taking 'luxury cruises' round well-known world cesspools. It's their money, fine, whatever, but you want me to sympathise with you when you get attacked whilst sailing past Somalia? Yeah, right. The main thing, however, is how these big faceless firms keep managing to squirm their way out of any significant compensation payouts in court. This time it was because they reckoned that this attack was the first known attack by pirates on a passenger vessel. Sounds insane, but they probably got out of it by specifying that particular type of Somalian pirates, and not pirates in general. They're the ones operating a cruise round these places with no on-board weaponary suitable for seeing off a pirate attack, and no escort. Ben.
  8. is considering a 'generic action movie bad guy' loadout... Black overalls, a field cap, and an MP5 it is, then.

      To be a true 80's bad guy you will want a HK94 and chop the barrel off, :P

    If you want to buy it in the UK, try Tactical Quartermaster, Wolf Armouries, or Airsoft Armoury. Ben.

    I'm not blaming them for the postage, it's more about how they wait a week to post the thing, and then when it does go missing or stolen, all they're interested in is getting their money back rather than sorting out my problem first, as it should be. Ben.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Ok, I've got one. Play.com, go die in a hole somewhere. The premise of a pre-ordering a game is simple. I put my faith in the developers that the game will be good, and trust that I want to play it. I then pay money to secure my copy before it has been released. This, I assume, helps the developers and producers, as they're selling games potentially before they're finished, and resellers like Play and Amazon order more to meet demand. In return, I expect to receive the game on the day of release or before. Not a week and a half after it's on the shelves. At the same time as ordering the game, we ordered a birthday present for my girlfriend's dad. A week later (!) we get the dispatch e-mail from Play.com, and the tracking number. The next day, the tracking number shows that the courier depot received it, and sent it out for delivery. No-one calls that day, so we check to see what happened. The courier who was tasked to deliver the package marked it 'not received'... Which I assume means he lost or stole it. Play.com promise an immediate replacement... A week later, no replacement, but a letter with a form to fill in and send back so that Play.com can claim the money back from the courier. Girlfriend's dad's birthday goes by with no present. Two further weeks go by, and it finally arrives, no apology, no nothing. What a crock. Won't be using them again. Ben.

    WE SCAR Review

    Mine has been having a few problems recently. Took it out on Sunday, and it would jam every 3-4 shots, usually venting all the gas. Not sure why, but it has been doing this ever since I installed the NPAS. Either the NPAS o-ring is too big, and is jamming in the brass cylinder, or it's something to do with the bolt assembly. The bolt sticks about 2" short of returning to full battery. Any ideas? Ben.

    WE SCAR Review

    Anyone looking for a PEQ15 and who doesn't want to pay the exorbitant VFC prices might do well to look at the BetaProject version. I got mine from eHobbyAsia. So cheap, with working laser (though I just use it for show). Holds up to recoil just fine. Ben.

    WE SCAR Review

    The ACM ones aren't better, but there are rumours that they are G&P OEM... So exactly the same. I had an ACM 4x32 with trades, and it was rock solid. The only thing is, as you've said, they don't have very good eye-relief. The recoil won't give you a black eye though (used it on my WE M16A3 for ages). I use a G&P AimPoint with my SCAR, and it has held up with no problems whatsoever. If you want a 4x32, why not look at those ACM Spectre DR things as well? Ben.

    Mine shot well in excess of this on green out of the box. Ben.

    You DO need an NPAS if you're going to play at a proper, safe airsoft skirmish site where all guns are chrono'd before play Ben.

    Another thing that pees me off about them is their 'Home Delivery Network'. Sometimes, even though you've paid to have the package delivered, they'll outsource it to private couriers working on a contract with them. These guys don't ring the bell or shove a note on the door; they simply leave the package outside your house. Twice now I've been wondering where my parcel is while putting rubbish out, and found it stuffed behind our wheelie bins! Left out all day in the rain. Ben.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    It was mentioned a few hundred pages back; the ACM one fits, so I assume the KA one will too. Does anyone know whether there is a PSG-1 style sniper grip that'll fit the WE M16/M4? I know they do them for AEG's, but not seen one for GBBR's. Ben.

    The Computer Question Thread

    I don't really have the techy know-how or the time to build my own. This 'barebones' option sounds interesting, sure, but again I'm not really skilled enough to put the thing together. Which is where I'll pay through the nose, because any of these custom built gaming PC's seem to be very expensive for the spec. Ben.

    The Computer Question Thread

    Thread medic. Need some help - looking at getting a HTPC, and all my available options for doing so. Basically, I want the smallest, cheapest gaming PC possible that I can run straight through my HDTV. I don't have space for a computer desk or monitor, so it'll sit in my home theatre running through the TV, and I'll have a wireless keyboard and mouse. It'll basically be used for browsing, but needs to be able to run Civ 5, Shogun 2, and other games in that kind of genre. The Cryo Nano is too expensive. The DinoPC Mini Carnivore is in the right price range, but under-spec. Any ideas? Ben. EDIT:: Been looking at the DinoPC Pico. Reasonable price, fairly good specs - 8GB DDR3 RAM, ATI Radeon HD6870, choice of SSD or HDD, Intel i5 or i7 processor.

    Hope you're safe and sound - what with everything that's going on in Japan right now.

    Ben.

  22. needs someone handy with computers for a little advice on the matter...

      I haven't done anything! Lolz. I'm looking at getting a HTPC and wanted some advice on which one to get. Cheers for the link.

    Had a similar thing last year with Airsoft Buddy, who happily answered questions on my order and let me send the money, before telling me they were out of stock on everything, and issuing it as a refund. I was worried, but luckily the refund only took about a day, and I'd paid on a different card to the one linked to my Paypal account, so it went straight back onto the card. Ben.

    It was probably either straight propane or CO2... Or you're in a hot climate and don't have the reinforced hinge plate. Ben.
