    A Sniper Sidearm..your picks

    Don't overthink it. Find a pistol that fits your hand and learn to shoot it. For me, it was a TM Sig 226. It's like an extension of my index finger, and I ran it for years. The 'holster' was something I wanted to keep it out of the dirt when I was on my belt buckle, and the best I found was a PLCE ammo pouch with the rear of the lid trimmed to accommodate the grip. Kept everything covered, including the mag release which I found got hit when prone with other holsters. Droplegs meant it dug up mud, and waist holsters got buried under my ghillie suit. Ignore Gucci kit, keep it simple.
  2. No idea on Airsoft clones any more (I used to run a clone M3 pistol light with an incandescent bulb, old school...) But for RCR123 batteries I'm happy with Olight. I have several nitecore 18650 batteries too, which are really good. The rechargeable 123 batteries tend to run down a lot faster than disposable ones though, so carry spares, and some can be slightly fatter in the body and may be a tighter fit.

    I don't think you can divorce within the first year of marriage. You can have it annulled, but that's if it hasn't been consummated. I think.

    Your Favorite Tokyo Marui Pistol (s)

    I tried a few before I bought, and I chose the Sig 226r in a guarder full metal kit. I can't shoot glocks, the grip angle is wrong for me, but the Sig was an extension of my arm. Firefly hop and a tightbore gave it reach, and I never tried anything again as it was the perfect fit 😁

    Hedge, I've been through a medical negligence investigation and totally understand how you're feeling. If you persue it, it will take a while, and will be stressful for you both. Frustration will abound and you may not win if they close ranks and cover each others arses and alter records as happened with us. Not trying to put you off, and I say go for it and attack with full force. Jgot wood, ust giving a heads up. Also to avoid costs, try a no win, no fee firm as I'm guessing your barrister friend may not go all the way for free. I can pass on the firm we used if you want, they were excellent even though they didn't win the case. Got wood, hope you get sorted too. I've had to live with an ex until the house got sorted. Not fun.

    T4E HDR 50..What fun!

    If it's just dye, it wouldn't fall under section 5 as it would be an inert dye. Sketchy legal area though, like the marker gels you can buy, but this is also a replica firearm added in to the mix...

    You only get 1 pair of eyes, is it worth the gamble? Buy a properly rated pair, from a known source...

    Guarder P226 Slide Group on WE P226 E2?

    Isn't a TM rebuild just a case of filing down the original bbu to fit the metal slide? Can't remember exactly as my guarder TM Sig was done for me...

    The automotive question thread Part 2

    No worries. Another thing would be to buy a plug kit and do it yourself. I think they are about 10 or 15 quid, and at least you know there's a proper fix in it.

    The automotive question thread Part 2

    The nerd and ex traffic cop in me says replace it. It could go at any time and cause a crash and you will kill many school children and nuns and fluffy bunnies and baby ducklings etc. It will probably be ok for a while, but should it fail an MOT you'll have to replace it anyway, sol if you can do, do so now. No idea what car it is, but a cheap ditchfinder tyre is better than a potential blowout. And if a traffic cop sees it, they will then crawl over your car looking for further defects...

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    Tink, apologies for the double post... I got back from Iceland early Tuesday morning. It's probably the most amazing place that I've ever been. Surprise 40th from my wife. She did a brilliant job of organising it all, from the brilliant hotel to all the excursions/things to see. It's like a different planet, and even having seen a lot about it because I've always wanted to go, it doesn't prepare you for the reality. It's real bucket list stuff, and I'm fortunate to have seen a small part of it. Brilliant people too, a really chilled out country (if you'll pardon the pun). Living costs are crippling though, but I'm already wanting to go back to see more.

    Yeah... Judging by the price of food here, I'm not in Iceland the shop. It's extortionate.

    I'm currently in Iceland. It's one of the most amazing places I have ever been, and I'm a lucky bugger for coming here. Surprise birthday gift from the wife. It's bucket list stuff.
