    Just asked her. Vestibular migraines is what it is. She was referred by a neurologist.

    Some sub type of migraine I think she said. I'll be honest, it went right over my head.

    Girlfriend has had a series of tests, and it turns out she needs special glasses... with £200 quid orange lenses. Given her propensity for sitting on/standing on/dropping her glasses, this could be a very expensive game.

    Glove recommendations

    Theres a small hard pad over the next knuckle down, and the kevlar fabric is fairly thick. I've not taken a hand shot in them yet, but I reckon they'd take out the worst of it.

    Glove recommendations

    I'm using Armoured Claw gloves. Goat leather palm, touch screen compatible thumb and index finger and kevlar back. Armoured knuckle, but you can take the hard shell out if you dont want it. Very good gloves in my opinion. Bought them from gunfire.pl and split the postage with a mate. They ended up at about 18 quid iirc.

    Is it? I thought it was "pressure bearing parts" that were under restrictions.

    Pictures of Airsoft Stuff You Just Bought

    So after picking up a mauser carbine dead cheap, I decided to get the pistol. I'd also struggled to find magazine pouches for it that'd hold the long mags, and would go with a leather belt and holster. Picked up this pouch for a couple of quid off ebay. It was very pale tan, and in pretty rough shape. A good wash and scrub took the mildew off and after being braced with some plastic while it dried it was an acceptable shape again. A bit of boot polish to finish up and it looks quite lovely.

    Quick question for any Broomhandle/M712 guys. What magazine pouches are you using for the long mags? I'm after some brown leather ones, cant find any that I'm confident will fit.

    It's pretty common stuff in the plumbing merchant world. We've had our place scoped out, and the last place I worked at was watched for a bit too. Basically the idea is you won't know who else is a potential customer unless you know who's shopping with the competition. So you have a gander at their shop for a bit, write down some names and numbers, then ring them up and say you've seen their van about, where do you shop, are you happy with them, what do you fit, can we quote you on some stuff, etc etc. It's just as effective as going through the yellow pages because you'll know where they're shopping so you'll have an idea what to offer them. For example, Competitor X is known to be very keen on their copper tube prices and will push customers towards Ideal Boilers, so maybe don't try to poach their customers by pitching them copper, but do offer them an alternative boiler manufacturer if they're open to it.
