    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    I've done the outpost maybe 5-6 times over the years since what-was-xsite opened it. It's always fine, pushing in to a good rating with a solid bunch, the building itself however is pretty much just one wide corridor for the most part (with the usual plyboard walls), so unless they whole site is in play (not terribly common) there's nothing you can do in terms of getting around people using the different stories/shops like the mall it's just head-to-head all the time in the same cramped space. The games primarily using the outside are actually better to my mind and because it's not huge you're almost always in range unlike your typical woodland game. Good staff, I'd never tell anyone not to go, but it's not somewhere I'm ever like 'yeah let's go do that!'.

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    Sounds like it has all the right things going for it to make for a good time, green would be the team I'd choose as well. As I say I'm not around to attend, but I hope some folks will post their reviews/experiences in here.

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    I feel in limbo a bit atm, I split my time between camp near Reading and home in Middx, there's nowhere indoors right now within a good driving radius that many people seem to consistently be really happy with. Granted I'm only on forums not any of the FB groups so it's entirely possible there's chatter I'm missing. I've been to longmoor with work, not for bb fun, definitely high on the list but it seems multiple organisers run events there and I've no clue which is the recommend at the moment.

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    Well.. how weird I just checked this thread a couple of hours ago after not looking at it for months lol. Saw another blokes' post about the place you mention over on AFUK, does sound pretty decent. Legion only have 1 battlesim between me getting back off this deployment and the end of the year, would've liked to do a night one but apparently the last time they did one of those more than half the participants didn't bring so much as a warm jacket for a night game in the cooler part of the year and quit a couple of hours in. Zed seem to be taking their sweet time to even announce anything which makes me wonder at this point, personally still hoping for some worthy replacement for the Mall and AA's Barracks.

    Alpha-Tec Closed?

    So you can just use a 209, but also use that 209 to set off a bigger charge? More realistic than anything else I've seen admittedly. I'd defo stick to my x3 TRMR because it's more practical for skirmishes but this is obviously going for the real world training user. Or people who think airsoft is pretty much the real thing.

    TM Glocks AWOL from WGC Shop

    Very annoying as WGC is basically the only airsoft shop I use and I hate ordering from multiple different places. Anyone seem non-licensed/unofficial Glocks disappear from other retailers?

    TM Glocks AWOL from WGC Shop

    I can get it, but with everything on here and other forums etc already that would be latching the gate after the proverbial horse.

    Sorry why are we not saying Glock, Colt (?) or Umarex in full on this forum?

    Wow.. inception of terrible business people.

    PTS licenced MAWL

    I've been involved in a little of the internal discussion, features like vis laser colour are nowhere near pinned down yet, very early days. I don't think they started any of the design process before acquiring the license so it'll be a long time before we see these I'd imagine. Prototype at SHOT maaaybe?

    Alpha-Tec Closed?

    Alpha-Tec was owned/run by that Keith (?) guy who's been famous over the years for many failed businesses that have taken peoples' money and run. I wanna say previous efforts were something to do with PTWs and an engraving business.

    LCT Conversion Kits, Where Did They Go?

    Weren't kits like that a remnant of the days of TM's original plastic AEGs being the only/primary option in the marketplace? Or at least from the times when the only metal guns were nasty pot metal CAs and ICSs (talking mainly AKs of course).

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    So you're fitting the battery in that Sopmod Bravo somehow?

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    The company with the X-Site name stopped running games there a year or 2 ago. I played a game maybe 6 months prior to it closing just out of happenstance and it was really run down, a lot of the structures were unsafe and taped off. Whether that was through lack of any profit to be able to repair them or just not bothering/poorly managed I've no idea. Had to dig around a bit to find the info and it was confusing for a sec, but this different bunch is running that High Wycombe site at the time or writing it seems. Whether they're taking any better care of the place I don't know. https://www.facebook.com/skirmishwycombeairsoft/ The X-Site page changed their name to Sentinel and run the Outpost. https://www.facebook.com/SentinelAirsoftUK/

    I'm not taking a poke at anyone, but it's pretty simple, if you don't come on.. that's one less person. Not saying anyone 'has' to use the site either you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Quality Chargers?

    I've been using one of these guys for yonks now, ever since I switched over from nimh to lipo in fact: https://www.componentshop.co.uk/800ma-charger-for-2s-or-3s-7-4-11-1v-battery-packs-complete-with-mains-power-supply.html It works great, but obviously with no digital readout you don't get details on what's actually happening with your battery (I'll be buying a small capacity checker along with whatever charger I get). Being that I only play a few times a year it's proven extremely prudent that I get my lipos recharged up to an appropriate level given the long gaps inbetween uses. I've only look on component-shop thus far, of their offerings this seems like the right sort of option to fit my personal needs: https://www.componentshop.co.uk/accucel-6-digital-charger-with-5a-power-supply.html Just wondered what experiences the good folks of Arnies might have to offer (good quality 7.4v brand recommendations would also be welcome as an aside).

    Getting Back into Airsoft.

    In 3 years? I feel like at any given time in airsoft's existence 3 years isn't that much, stuff evolves very slightly but when you bear in mind a plastic legacy TM AEG is still more than perfectly usable to play the game it puts things in to perspective.

    £7.62 Gear Clearout

    Lot of stuff here I've had sitting for literally years, take it off my hands for actual peanuts (P&P included). The only caveat is it may take a good while (foprtnight tops) for me to get home to send thing,s but you're still getting a bargain so stop ya whinging. More pics and other gear that's not part of this sale all depicted here - https://flic.kr/s/aHsjPXJkHw Rasputin Item combat shirt, size small, worn once indoors. WAS roll-up dump, used twice, no damage. BFG old gen (pre helium whisper) double pistol TenSpeed in RG, used for a couple of indoor games. ATS M4 shingle, unused. FirstSpear double Sig226, pretty tight on most double stack, unused. 6/12 attachment system, might work on some laser cut PALS. G-Code/HSP single AR mag carrier, unused, with belt slide mount. Laylax (I think) shotgun sling, unused. 2 x HSGI RAMPs so you can get belt gear under your vest pouches, used once. SKD generic ball cap, worn once. 5.11 waterproof (yep, tested, don't ask me how but it is) cap. Looks unworn. TAG cap, FG, worn twice. Mission First back-up front iron, flimsy build but weighs literally nothing, unused. Any questions at all drop me a line.

    Posting IMGs from Google Photos

    I get what you're saying, but as I say the long links work 100% fine on the other 2 forums which to me would tend to suggest the issue is more with this board. Example: https://airsoft-forums.uk/topic/7377-the-what-have-you-just-bought-thread/?do=findComment&comment=355912 I'm pretty confident I already tried using the Share/Get Link option in other threads here and various other users said they still weren't seeing anything, but here's a test just in case: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kSo3vE1WdGaod54J9 And using the type of site shown in the video: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/0-rLzyQgOBinnL_seQQSzor0-OxpWqCdXsipcvXEkOKNhhYcK3hn7nMTk68c9_2yD7KL3K61yqNHVSXe4Uyoxkl3FmBhkOUA=w2400 Pasting either style of link in to the 'Insert Image from URL' under the 'Insert Other Media' drop-down in the bottom right of the post writing box just results in the text field flashing red at me when I click insert in to post. If I do the standard thing and Copy Image Address on GP then use said drop-down it appears to work on my end: I would presume you'll not see an image here ^ however.

    Hey no rush I get a really good value out of my ArniesAirsoft monthly subscription.

    Quality Chargers?

    Well, this has opened a surprising can of worms I have to say. Seemed like the imax would be the cheaper option, but if you google the b6 there's a youtube video you should come across going over differences between what are apparently the real ones and the chinese clones which appear to be incredibly common - every one I found on ebay UK appears to be a clone to the extent I can't even seem to find a real one for sale. hobbyking lists 2, with product pages for apparent real and clone options but the pictures of the supposed real one also appears to be the copy. Even the SkyRC website doesn't do sales and their 'where to buy' section is *fruitcage* useless with nothing but a link for potential dealers. Now I don't trust anything anymore, even though I'm not coming across anything to indicate there are many copies of the accucel out there. Probably go with stuff from component-shop, I feel they have good odds of only stocking legit stuff. Unrelated I know but the fact many legit stores ended up selling knock-off chinese CATs (because the fakes were so real looking) leaves me pretty paranoid these days.

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Hold up, wasn't that the vaporware from aaaages ago (around the time of the Real Sword GBLS-style ARs) that was meant to stop firing on an empty mag using bog standard AEG mags?

    LCT EBB prototypes - MP5, SCAR H, M16, G3, CQBR

    Well dayum. Fair few people out there looking for that ideal blend of higher end/close-to-real externals with the functions of the TM NGRSs (me included) so yeah definitely appealing. Do the AKs stop firing when empty? I feel like they don't which would be the one thing to my mind holding these guns back from perhaps being the bestest thing ever on the electric rifle market (if they function reliably and shoot decently well). It's taken many years but I'm getting close to actually buying an airsoft MP5 now.
