    Loft clearout time!

    I'll pick the Glock RONI, then.

    If I wasn't so damn wary of the postal carriers, I'd be all over that P99 tactical... The Glock RONI would be interesting as well... But alas, Finnish Failmail is pretty bass-ackwards about anything gun-shaped....

    Stunt, consider the environmental impact of driving an older car to the ground. The lease cars don't go into landfill after the few years, they get pushed to the used car market or sold to fleets with less funds. But if you get a new car every three-four years, it's going to have better fuel economy, less emissions and generally better accessory levels as more and more of the 'luxury' features sink down to lower trim levels.

    You don't own a wife, it's the other way around.

    The big trouble with stock management systems is the initial setup. Especially if you have tons of items and don't have too tech-savvy crew. Then comes understanding your system and how to use it. Most of the big systems are too expensive for small businesses and usually come bundled with either accounting software or full-blown ERP, raising the bar even further. Most cheap (read: free) eCommerce packages require manual updating of the stocks, and that can get complicated for small shops.

    'Condensed view' not working on mobile

    Just noticed, 'Condensed' isn't working on desktop browser either.
  7. So, I have my 'new activity' feed customized to give me an overview of the topics which have been active recently and have unread messages, but now the 'Condensed' toggle has been ineffective for a bit, and not condensing the view to just topics. Latest Chrome for Android.

    How do you think he knows he'd rather listen to his feet being smashed with hammer? Joke aside, it might cause friction at home.

    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    My brothers, sister and I were all taught basic first aid in Scouting, because our dad was the Chief of the local chapter.

    Wonder if we could not only make first aid courses mandatory, but also add some mandatory warning markings on people who lack said training, and extreme hazard markings on those who have failed the course?

    H&K Picture Thread

    Hey, a bit of lame question, but trying to google, and it's giving me all sorts of unrelated junk... Does the WE888/HK3P 416 GBBR come with the two-part barrel to switch between 10" and 14" barrel lengths?

    Just a half-load of crock, really. Everyone and their aunt ought to know that TM doesn't really bother about sales outside of Japan, so there isn't a TM Wholesaler you could easily order a decent lot of the things, and if you're a retailer with as big a site as Evike, you don't really announce you have stuff for sale unless it's more than five pieces, so getting that 20-rifle lot or 100-rifle lot might take them time to arrange.

    WE's jet-fire

    Wishing them bankrupt is a bit risky... There's always the risk that some opportunistic political jerk goes to ban 'unlicensed firearm copies'...

    Unless it's Aldi managers using their personal accounts to sell them on eBay...

    hk416

    Sorry, this is a bit vague... Do you ask about AEG, EBB, GBBR? Manufacturer? There are plenty of HK416 models in airsoft, so some narrowing down is in order...

    Most reliably found product of theirs outside Japan is RC stuff, I believe...

    Loft clearout time!

    Currently trying to find a different carrier for export sales. They did announce that on their FB page, but I think it was in Finnish... The way this strike is escalating, we're going to look at complete shutdown of exports and imports soon...

    Loft clearout time!

    Imports aren't a ball ache, it's usually been the UK end that was a pain... Although, right now, I can't buy -anything- abroad, our Post company is crippled by a strike that's dragged plenty of all of logistic unions into it, nothing sent here will be even transported to Finland until after the strike is over, unless it's UPS/DHL, but then Customs and most colurier services use Finnish Post for the delivery of all notifications of arriviing parcels and the like, so... Messy.

    SRC Maverick GBB pistol

    It could, but I doubt it'd work that way. Could be the licenses are non-transferable from the licensees, or it might not be that available on the market. For us to buy, someone'd need to sell, and I seriously doubt we'd have enough savvy and clout to outmaneuver the lawyers and business sharks running Cybergun right now...

    SRC Maverick GBB pistol

    Could be it's a reaction to license/trade-dress issues. Like the bevy of RS Not-Glocks back in the day. Might spill here in Europe too, considering Umarex and Cybergun licenses, and their potential for litigation on licensees...

    *sigh* Wish it wasn't badger and three quarters to ship stuff around, I'd be interested in that P99 otherwise... Edit: typos

    I have spent enough time involved with industrial maintenance to know that one ought to aim for ease of maintenance in parts. Or have enough of a wallet for it to be someone else's fingers in there, and one just pays it all.

    No, but they have shorts and pants made of same pattern. Knew someone'd catch that...
