  1. Looking at the weather report for the weekend. If its correct or still viable for Saturday, they are calling for thunderstorms. Honestly, if its pouring down rain, I’m out, but we will see what the weather is going to do.
  2. Holy crap! Iceman is going to make it up? Wtf? Is he bored? Lol
  3. All of Blackwatch....but we always bring uniforms for both sides, so you never really know what we are doing......then again, neither do we.
  4. Let me know if you want the nozzle. It has a npas in it, but I don’t have the adjustment tool. I might be able to find one in box of spare parts though. Just PM me.
  5. If you shove it out a little further than May 11th, you might have a better chance of getting some of the northern guys there. We are hitting mutual combat for a game at the end of April, and then to turn around and come back in 2 weeks might not be feasible. We have pandora at the beginning of June up north, so maybe sometime before that if possible, or maybe the end of June if there isnt any major events going on?
  6. Temps below 60-55 degrees are not ideal for that gun. You can run co2 mags, but you need to have upgraded internals and co2 still has a huge cool down cycle. Makes sure if you are using propane you are adding oil to the mag about every 3 mags. You have to keep the o rings internally lubed up. When you fill the mag, make sure you are holding the nozzle on until it stops making the “filling” noise, and then another 5 seconds.
  7. If you already have a loaner body, you’re probably looking at 5-600. However, it’s a 1 time investment and its adaptable to all play styles wether that be field, cqb , or playing long range DMR style. It’s not for everyone, because most people don’t want to shell out the cash, but those of us who have are very happy.
  8. Have you heard about our lord and savior “HPA”? Lol. No sewing machine noise, can be fully suppressed, and little to no maintanance for a year at a time. Also, before anyone says, “but you have a tank and hose”, I’ve been running without a tank and hose for 3 years on co2 capsules, so your argument is invalid.
  9. They may have made adjustments to the system since I stopped running one 2 years ago. So if the buffer feels light, then its probably an upgrade. The old ones were a little heavy. I have a spare nozzle at the house if you want it. I assume you’re still in whiteland? The NPAS is adjustable, just a pain to do. As for guns. There isnt any difference internally to the M4 over the 416. They are exactly the same. It’s literally just a body preference. The nice thing about the 416 is that you can do a long or short outer barrel. The inner barrel is designed for the short configuration, and it does make it nice when you add a suppressor. No matter how hard you try, and foam filled suppressor will not quiet down a GBBR. Tried, and nothing helped. The other person to contact about GBBR’s is whiplash. I’m pretty sure he still has him M4 DMR, and it was bad ass. He could reach out and touch you from about 230 feet easily. Hell, it might even be for sale.
  10. I’ve had about 4 or 5 of these. Npas is the way to go, but will make your loading nozzle and little more fragile. Gas mags have gotten better in design, but semi is the way to go when using them. They also have a few advances in tbb, and hop up buck8ng and nubs that give you some real distance and accuracy now. When you have the cash you can run the RATECH aluminum bolt, but it’s expensive. You will also want to run a lighter buffer with that bolt to help with your gas consumption.
  11. It makes me sad the way the FB pages have killed forum traffic. It use to be exctic to track down games to travel to. It also use to be a real community. FB, is the devil! Learned that from Bobby Bouchés mama.
  12. I’m in. @RG, I will copy this over to the toy soldiers forum. See how many contractors we can get to make the trip. Can you reach out to Ares and Janitor?
  13. I said it when it started and came about. Facebook will be the down fall of civilization. For the simple fact that if unchecked it wil run rampant with propaganda that isnt rooted in fact. Look at what it has done to us politically. No surprise to me that it has destroyed the forums that we all use to have to visit and register on in order to get info about games, b/s/t, and getting to know each other in the community. This is paramount at what ever meeting takes place, that it is discussed how to minimize the FB involvement in our hobby, and how all FB pages need to be redirected to local forums for the betterment of the hobby. I know the younger guys may not understand this mentality, but it use to be that you had your forums, and then if you played in different regions you would register on that regions forum boards, make an introduction, AND HAD TO BEHAVE LIKE A CIVILIZED PERSON out of respect for the other forum members and fear that you may be barred from that regions games. Let’s also get this straight, this is no longer a 1 person idea. At this community meeting you / we, need to invite IAC, Spartans, Blackwatch, 3rd group, all teams for that matter as well as field owners, and for god sakes please just reach across the line and at least invite Ohio, or someone from there. I have learned from my years (not always the wisest) that we have divided this hobby to easily, but we did nothing to repair it. It has to be done. There is no airsoft indiana without ALL of indiana playing airsoft together. If your moderators police here, but do very little to promote. Time for new mods then. These things need to be done, but it wil take everyone’s involvement to do it. There will always be people who dont see eye to eye, but we need to learn how to move past this and start playing again. If that takes apologies being made and fences being mended, then air the laundry at the meeting and lets move to clearing this up. That’s my .02 from my ivory tower.
  14. The address is on pheasant lane. Some one please change this, and make sure everyone knows!
  15. Did someone say food?....I’m coming for the booze and the hot looking chicks.....dont necessarily need food, but I do expect your ass to be there Rob!
