    Twatting agas? It sounds like some sort of vaginal infection...

    I'm slowly starting to discover that I am only attracted to women with situations that make them impossible to date. Whether she be 15 years older than me and already in a committed relationship (with another woman), moving 2000 miles away in 3 weeks, or twice my age and married. I didn't know as much as I thought I did about the married one so I did ask her out, which led to a funny (in retrospect) though I'm sure quite flattering for her short conversation.

    Just find some fat chicks, it's not that hard...

    Around here people have no problem sticking their finger out, but it's not to make a turn... Definitely have to agree though. It's especially annoying when I'm trying to make a left turn and the far lane is clear, but the near lane has one car that ends up making a turn down my road anyhow without signaling therefore wasting my time waiting for him to pass.

    The management at my job. Don't get me wrong, I really like my job and most of the people I work with (honestly most of the managers are decent people too) but seriously the whole place is (barely) run in the least efficient, most time and resource-wasting *albatross*-backwards way possible. Basically what's really got me going is that me and my colleague both had to spend 3 1/2 hours hauling small, freshly dug shrubs into the back where they are supposedly to be replanted. First off, I work at a resort with a small 9 hole golf course. I recently left the regular maintenance position to work on the golf course (it's just a better job) so all I really should be doing is work on the course, but whatever. Lately everyone in the maintenance and housekeeping departments have been busting their butts because some big-wigs that are in charge of the eastern seaboard are spending a couple of days there for a meeting. This may seem justifiable, but what I've come to notice is that nothing that should be done ever gets done unless some one important is going to see it. It's *fruitcage* retarded. We have parking lots that are falling apart, a lobby and lodge that look like something out of Scarface, dilapidated rooms, and on a good day, barely functioning equipment. So in the past week, because we have to make it look better than it is, we had about 9 different independent contractors come in and about 25 people from a neighboring resort. Some stuff I can understand just can't be done in-house. Most of it however, can, and should have been. What really ###### me off today is that rather than get work done in my department, I was was to help out in maintenance. Whatever, I get paid the same either way. But, at first I was told that I was to power wash sidewalks (a waste of time, IMO, most of the stuff is stained and they'll just get dirty again anyway), but when I showed up I was then told that I was going to be putting stone around trees (not as easy, but probably a better idea) because they had a private contractor do the sidewalks. About halfway into prepping for the stone, I was then told that I had to haul the shrubs. Whatever again. The problem is that these shrubs were just trimmed yesterday by another contractor and are now being replaced by another IC for what would seem to be no good reason at all. Out of the probably 560 other better things tho do with our money and time, we spent probably $20,000 on replacing 90 absolutely adequate shrubs because it has to look nice for when the execs come. Ludicrous. Also, as a separate issue. I really hate being at least somewhat intelligent and very over-analytical. I'm caught between what feels right, what should be, and what makes sense. It wouldn't be a problem if I could stop the constant bickering of the voices in my head that are my thoughts, but I can't no matter how hard I try and it makes me feel sick.
  6. long time no see. If you don't remember me I'm the guy that bought your TM m16 way back. I've been keeping it in good shape, and it has still not had any problems. I'm thinking of upgrading it some this summer since I have the funds, I'll send pics :P

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Personally I like The Chef's way better. It seems much less likely to have any impact on gas flow.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    By further threading the rod, then screwing it into the back of the nozzle to press the float valve? That shouldn't really have any negative effect on blowback strength. Is it very noticeable, or just barely?

    How have you modified your nozzle?

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Wow, that's a bit different and worse than I was expecting. How old were these mags when they exploded? Maybe there's some sort of metallurgical issue and the metal becomes weakened from everyday use. On the other hand, I've always heard that some gas should be left in the magazine when storing it to keep the seals healthy. It's always been my experience that mags that go into storage ungassed tend to develop leaks, where as mags that always have a bit of gas in them almost never develop a leak unless they suffer a hard fall.

    WA mags cost so much because of where they're made and who they're made by. They are only slightly more complex than WE mags. They also probably don't explode because they leak with the slightest bit of mistreatment on propane (for example, filling them with propane). It's definitely an issue. Keeping your filled mags out of high-heat environments is the obvious and common sense solution, but the question of what exactly constitutes "high-heat" could be raised considering that like all gas guns the WE M4 is designed to work in warm environments and cold isn't exactly it's preferred operating environment. A safety valve however would in my opinion mostly just jack up the price of a mag and allow another point of failure for gas to leak out in normal conditions. However this all might just be my misguided opinion spat-out in a sleep-deprived state since I still haven't seen a photo of exactly where one of the mags has failed.

    How high at how far back? Are you sure it isn't just that the sight was set at a certain range and moving away from it is what makes the rifle seem to shoot up?

    Was discussed a few pages back, here. Seems to be another one of those mostly useless parts. I want steel barrels, now!

    Thanks guys! To be honest though the way they're shaped isn't that great, but I was very impressed to get a "burly" block of wood among a few blocks of standard grained stuff.
