    H&K Picture Thread

    Been liking the look of my 416 unsuppressed recently!
  3. Hello Arnies. I have logged in to see if this site was still going. And while I am relieved to see that it has a pulse, I am saddened by what a ghost town it has become. I'm guessing this is mostly death by Facebook, and a changing landscape of the internet in general, but I still think forums are so much better as a resource. Structured threads and a community spirit rather than throwaway likes and 15 minutes of fame. Not sure who is still around from the old days (Or if anyone even recalls my handle?). While I first visited this board in 2006, I have been a registered user since 2007. I'm also pleased to see many of the moderators still kicking about, and fighting the good fight. This forum was everything for me in my teens, F5ing all day, and there'd always be new pictures and chat, and things I would drool over and never afford. I think I must have dropped out of the 'game' in 2011ish. Probably played my last game at Xsite in High Wycombe maybe in 2010? Are they still going? Anyone play there now? I reconnected a bit with this hobby last year (as a collecting thing, and getting involved in ASPC here in HK very casually). Have been thinking whether to get involved in the skirmishing side again. Not sure what the post of this post is really, guess I was just feeling extremely nostalgic. I have enjoyed looking at and cringing at my teenage writing style. And also laughing at how hard I wanted to be one of the cool 'geardos' with my Pantac, and China made garbage πŸ˜‚ Anyone feel the same? Anyone come back to this hobby from a long hiatus? Cheers, Michael

    I used to play at Xsite! Last game was maybe 2009ish for me. Quick Google, seems they're long gone now? Anyone know what happened? Michael

    Glock Picture Thread

    My all-sort-of-bits Glock 17, that I use for 3-gun APSC. It has given me so much heartache, but when it works it shoots well. Started life as a twenty five quid Army R17, but nearly everything has been replaced. Ready Fighter MOS kit, real Glock RMR plate. GunsModify and Guarder everything else, inside and out. Oh, a Crazy Jet barrel too. I have an ARC Comp for posing, but it is a royal pain in the bum actually shooting with it. Looks nice with an X300, but a pain to holster. Running a Safariland 579 GLS on the UBL at the moment. Must have been through several shops fixing and replacing bits, so let''s see how long it last this time πŸ™„

    I'm not one for silly social media trends, but being back on Arnies prompted me to start flicking through my old albums from back in the day. So this is a bit tongue in cheek. While there were some brilliantly cringe worthy 'Airsofter Loadouts' which I thought looked the dogs danglies back then, I found this pic from 2009 of my first 'Impression'. Back when all I wanted to do was impress the guys from Wannabe. Laugh. Was all Pantac stuff, and stuff my Dad made in the shed but I thought for the money I put into it from a Saturday job looked alright. Flash forward to 2019, and it's Crye, LBT bla bla. mashed in with some China made stuff. Even though I quit Airsoft, my fascination with kit never went away.

    Were There Ever Arnies Patches?

    Patch arrived at my parents place in the UK Arnie, thanks a lot! My old man was visiting this site when it was infancy, and is a reg'ed user from around '06 too. He was a bit jealous of the patch, as he spent many years here too πŸ˜‚ He asked me to tell you that you deserved a medal for keep the fire burning here for so long πŸ˜‰ Cheers Michael

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    100 Percent this. I have only been involved in one Facebook group, was for Star Wars costuming. I got absolutely sick of the same old questions being asked every few days, to the point where it gave me no added value, as a long time member to stay in it. So I quit. And Facebook Groups are so whimsical, there is rarely anything substantial. I can imagine there Airsoft ones are just 2 types of people: Clueless teenagers asking same old Wealthy person who quietly drops a pic of an expensive toy *A bazillion million like this* In the 2 days I have been visiting Arnies again, I have had more structured conversation than any Facebook group has given me πŸ˜‚

    What the hell? I mean, anyone active on any Airsoft or AR-15 forum back in the mid to late 2000s had heard of him. I used to follow him for all his MLCS kit. Crazy story. I just had a Google, and read a local journos article. Couldn’t make it up!

    Blimey, those names ring a bell! Where do you shoot Katotaka? I'm at Doubletap on and off throughout the year, but I'm an absolute rookie still.

    Thanks for the replies everyone, it is most appreciated! I am glad I am not the only one who misses 'the good old days'. I think I'll pop Arnies back on my daily read rotation for old times sake, and for the occasional comment πŸ˜‰

    2006 to 2008, this place was KICKING. Jeez, this place really was a huge deal for me back then. I could honestly mash refresh on the boards in an afternoon, instead of revising for whatever exams I was taking at the time, and there would be something new to see. I always thought Arnies UK focus but international flavour of the membership made it the best around.

    Just for anyone looking here for info, as far as I am aware they are not closing per se. They're relocating, but have not finalised a location, hence the stock liquidation. Their retail space in HK is nearly totally stripped of anything. Where and when they will re-open remains to be seen, but they don't seem to have plans to vanish completely.

    Thanks for the reply folks, glad to hear that not all love is lost for traditional text based boards. Makes me wonder how much is tied to Airsoft as a hobby in general too. I can't comment too much on the scene globally as I've been away for so long, but based purely on retail here in HK, Kwong Wah Street is depressing. In my teens, my old man and I used to spend a day in and out of the shops, comparing prices, bargaining with the shop keepers, but now, I struggle to kill half an hour there. The golden years, where nearly every shop was Airsoft, compared to now, where it is more dessert shops and watch boutiques. A new shop did just open, so maybe there is life in the old girl yet. My main link to the hobby is the DevT6 boards, as my interest has always been more nylon than tappet plates and motors, but they're struggling too. I think the niche level is what is keeping it afloat.
