    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    The Warminster one is in the middle of the woods. You can't see it from the road.. DBS cert printing means you'll be fine through the checks, they'll take an age to post it though.

    Warminster Airsoft has a full replica (with lights and noises) of a Stargate. Also the guy who built it also plays in a "Ground team" replica suit.

    I've got a phantom, that was immediately not good enough. Excellent quality though, if the Spark is good I might trade/sell up

    There was this one guy.. 👌 (absolutely aware the the 👌 has nothing to do with Nazis or white power, just 4chan up to their antics)

    It took them 110 days to carefully craft that damage onto the frame. The Austrians are known for their attention to detail. That damage is perfectly unique to you.

    After last week getting absolutely reemed out by my boss it ended with another manager taking him to oneside and politely telling him he's riding me too hard, unfairly and with no grounds. This was nice, but no-one where near as nice as a weekend with my new dog. Who is in my office sleeping in her crate.

    If the couple want to own the house for themselves they can buy what they want. The house is likely to be their house for them without army influence - i've just done it and it's magical to own white goods appliances that work and won't have their plugs cut off. The army sometimes buys job lots of housing, but rarely these days. Mostly they're selling it off. If the army did buy the house and then rent it it'd be a nightmare to rent/resell when the couple move on (assuming they'd move after 2/3 years on posting). The system is supposed to be that you can have a house subsidised (with an Army Help to Buy with return of service/hit on the pension) and if it's within 50 miles of your posted base you have to use it and commute.

    Mil spec being over priced, you're not qualified to use it despite it being made for idiots and has an "Out of Order" sign on it?

    But, you know what's made me smile? Cash available for sports clubs. An old bunker. 1000 hours on google. Buying some clay traps. Some dollar injected into it. Boom - got a Clay Target Clubhouse (Recce in for this afternoon and would be an offence if I didn't dust some clays at the same time)

    I said called up, not press ganged.. You put the offer out, and hope people have learnt something during their public service that it's the done thing to help people if you're in a position to do so.

    Rename it "Public Service" - you choose if you want to join the army (and only non-combat or niche jobs), specials, NHS (Ambi driver or assistant nurse), firefighter and then a host of other jobs - construction, street cleaner etc All of the above hold a retention should they be required in crisis (like the layover service the reserve forces hold - national emergency? call up the ex-"public service" ambi drivers and special coppers.) There should be an option to transfer into the job full time on merit or general interest. I used to be in favour of actual conscription to sort out the oiks until I was a platoon commander training Harrogate phase 1/basic training. *fruitcage* hell they are a nightmare to motivate even though they want to be there.

    German Shorthaired Pointer Missus's dad used to train them as gundogs - father-in-law plus points and I get free dog training and can take her out shooting.

    Mine makes a squeeking noise when I turn left and the steering wheel wobbles something awful. It currently is being used as a glorified dumper truck as I tear out walls and a garden.

    You can't make these decisions with a communist party at the helm. Stunt comes in, makes the decisions his department heads oversee it and boom. Stuff. Gets. Done. Also national service, but for everything. Every man and woman does their service - however if you don't want to do the military thing you can make railways into cycle paths or drive ambulances/fire engines/blood bikes. Oh, in other news I bought a dog. Very happy.

    Explosives for dyspraxic kids and an SAT score of 100 nets you a set of oversized plate armour.

    I'll take Education secretary. All schooling shall feature Battle Royale. You know, the good one in the films instead of the game mode that permeates all gaming.

    Google "Job vacancies" and there is: - Bristol Airport baggage handler (in your luggage, learning your secrets) - Nursery worker for "Little Green Man" in London (Not anything to do with Russian involvement) -Many, many bartending jobs (always good supply of side quests/free booze/rumours)

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/09/sports/magic-johnson-quits-steps-down-lakers.html LA Lakers' President slot is up for grabs. I vote Stunt in. We're all bad enough dudes to protect him, and this could be the foundation for Stunts Britain (TM)* *with minor Enclave status in the US. Potential for import/export law breaking and airsoft imports is high.

    More than one country with a president.. And not highlighting that sport teams and social organisations have presidents. It could be the local Lawn Bowls club president.

    I got my NATO clearance with a phonecall - essentially the guy was all "You're not a bad dude are you?" and I went 'I'm a bad enough dude to protect the president' And I went to the joint HQ and had no idea what anyone was saying #GCSEGermandontcutit Good news - I finally got my two week leave approved. Better news - I finally get to unbox the airsoft stuff after moving in to my house. Excellent news - I finally get to sell all the stuff i've accumulated over 10 years of airsoft and army. Best news - I'll flog some of it dirt cheap on here (sales forums) for those interested.

    I have a good friend that has a special cover letter reading "Your internet use, lifestyle and beliefs are taken into question". He has to have his reviewed every 6 months. He was very honest with his weekend curtains closed habits. All they're after is that you're honest and therefore not hiding anything the Russians can use against you.

    Ocado deliver a sack of chicken breast. I order enough for the week, bang it into the freezer on a Sunday and defrost as required.

    Our condolences my friend, if you need to vent, vent here. Remember what I said before - you need to find time to grieve, and then dedicate time to celebrate her life. She would not want you to lose out on your own life mourning hers. Stay strong for your family.

    Gas Rifle

    Afternoon all, I've notoriously had bad luck with AEGs. My one saving grace is that my gas pistols are always dependable. Question - Where to start with gas rifles? I'm confused as to types and what is recommended. My play style is methodical, and I fire single shot only. #hatredofspeedsoft #fullautofortherangeonly Is there a starter guide anyone can recommend?

    Stay strong for your family - grief has a different affect on everyone. For now, cherish the fact that your grandmother is a good person, that has raise you and your mother. Your mother needs you to be there for her but shutting out what is happening right now isn't for the best. Work is work, airsoft is airsoft. It will both still be there in a day, 6 weeks or 5 years. Be there for your mother and family, accept that you cannot be everywhere at once. If you feel a necessity to shut down, have an end state for recovery - give yourself an afternoon or evening just to go for a walk and mentally process what is happening.
