Better than the macaron? That's what's in it at the minute. Unless they require a run-in of several thousand and I'm just not there yet.

Yes, I'd say so. Better feeding and compatibility too as the lips are to TM spec, unlike the macarons and their longer lips.

It's really simple people.   Scorch is right, the My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch! thread (although a great place to get out the stresses of the day) is very negative, let us celebrate the things that hav

Stepped out into the garden 15 minutes ago; Found out nature had used a bucket, some H20 and some cold to produce me an awesome plinking target;    

Current girlfriend is just about perfect. Super intelligent, is a doctor (so helpful, if the Russians invade and we need to start a guerilla war), absolutely filthy in the bedroom and when she's upset

I dug my old tm p90 out of the closet yesterday and remembered that whoever sold it to me locally what feels like a decade ago had upgraded some of the bits and it was last shooting around 320 or so fps.  Put a deans on it, swapped the 15 amp fuse for a 30, hooked up one of my 7.4v, and it still works.  Chrono was telling me average of 290-300 fps, which is amazing considering how old it is.  Sadly my smallest lipo won't fit in the buttstock with the lid on.  Sending out feelers to someone selling one of those extended buttstocks though.  Figured I could bring it out to games sometimes for anything involving clearing plywood buildings or super short distances, as sorta the brother "cumbersome magazine" to the bizon.  Red dot still works but can't really adjust it to actually serve as a sight. Overall just gives me nostalgia vibes.

Also dear gott do I love how you can take it apart in half, and just the whole beauty of TM products.

Smallest one roughly is a short stick style one I use for my cyma ak105 (because for some reason the longer ones will not go down into the handguard area).  I got the deal made with a redditor for the extended stock for 15 dollars shipped, pretty good deal.

Just finished working out whilst listening to Cowboy Bebop Ost and watching airsoft vids from Japan/Forgotten Weapons vids.  Can't wait to go out and play tomorrow, though it looks like rain towards the afternoon.

Yeah I've no criminal record but just trying to work out what they do with the 5 year home history.

It's basically to check you haven't been abroad training as a terrorist. 

Explain everything from the outset. Say you didn't have a tenancy agreement and that's why there's a gap. 

Official vetting will find out, and it will look more suspicious to them if you didn't mention something and them finding it out (they will, trust me) as opposed to you just being a human who has a history like most others. 

 

Also, be lucky it's not Deep Vetting, where you sit down with people and have a good long chat about your sexual history and pornography preferences... ;)

Thank Gott my job didn't require deep vetting, I'd be kicked out just as fast as FireKnife.

Wonderful day out at the local field.  No HPA at all (which surprised me), everything actually worked, I pulled of many flanks, some kids and their dad had a good time, and the weather was perfect.  Bizon really performed when it came to pushing through brush with full auto, as did the ak104/5 carbine.  The rpk still felt subpar despite the mosfet installation, I don't know if it was just the motor height or if the stock lct gears really are just too slow even with a high torque motor compared to cyma stock gears or something. 

The strangest thing was my old kalash, the one I put plum furniture on.  Last time it was chronoed was 390 fps range with .2, so with .25 it was slightly less and still ruled as 20 foot MED.  All i've done since then was install the mosfet (without opening up the gearbox), replace the old plastic chamber with an SHS metal one, and put in a G&G Green bucking.  It chronoed today at 280 fps with .25...

I've heard of having to break in buckings and whatnot but that is a dramatic loss.  I would think the shs chamber being held in place to the gearbox via a screw would make compression better if anything.  I'm going to have to test via changing the bucking back to a Modify flat hop one and then swapping back to the plastic chamber to see what may be causing this dramatic compression loss.  Hopefully i can figure it out before next Saturday's game.

How is pron preferences relevant at all with deep vetting? I get sexual history to some degree but pron?

No idea, but they ask. I know several people who have gone through it. 

They always ask about the grot you watch. 

 

Always.

Specifically? Or in broad terms?

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.

Indeed.  If not, should you be in a position where you need to be deep vetted, just say "so do you see anything in my browser history you're concerned about?" ha.

I didn't think of the blackmail aspect could be applied to pron preferences.  I guess that could be used against you if you're into absolute filth.  But then again, if our Internet usage wasn't logged, that wouldn't be cause for concern. I would be interested in how exactly an individual could be blackmailed unless they were caught on a webcam or something as you could simply deny, deny, deny.  I imagine it's fairly trivial to fake an IP log etc so what 'evidence' could be used against you that was significant enough to get you to breach security protocols I wonder?

Using the VPN would potentially raise more issues than not, as they'd then be asking themselves what you were trying to hide.

But yes, VPN on general principle, is a good thing. My only issue with the ones I've used is they slow the connection down too much. And now Netflix can tell that you're using one and shut you out.

I use a VPN for the same reason I shut the bathroom door when I *suitcase*. Nothing to hide, just nothing I have to show you, nor should you want to see it!

(I appreciate the difference in requiring certain visibility into vetting - but my point stands.)

Yes, I appreciate that. My point was only that the people doing the vetting are by nature (and training) suspicious and if they can't see any history then they'd be asking why.

So you'd end up with more questions at the interviews than perhaps would otherwise be the case.

Just a thought.

The thing with the security services is that they want everyone *else* to have bad security to make their job easier.

They don't like Terry Taliban hiding behind VPNs and practicing good ComSec; and they don't want Joe Public doing it either because then they can't tell him apart from Terry.

You and I both know that having a VPN is just good practice for online security, but as I said, these people are paid to be suspicious.

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.

That reminds of the form you sometimes have to fill out on planes before landing.

"Are you currently engaging in or have previously engaged in terrorism or terror related activities".  Yes or No tick boxes.  I wonder how many they catch with that heh.
