Hey all just wanted to tag in on this thread. I'm new to airsoft- my son 12 is getting into it, and so we're playing at D-14 here in Texas. He's got a CQB eliete force AEG , 2 7.4 lipos, a hi cap, 5 mid caps a thunder B (?) grenade and a co2 non blow back pistol with two mags. He runs this all of a US palm plate carrier. Me : I've got a m187A sniper, a JG M4 RIS CQB, one hicap, 5 midcap, one 11.1 Lipo, the 8.4 nunchuck it came with, the same type of CO2 pistol and one extra mag. I'm not mil simming- I'm civi simming- I don't use full auto, or grenades... I run a us palm contractor plate carrier and hunting cammo. I'm using this play time to simulate what my real steel will perform like in close confines. I plan to get a glock lookalike gas pistol and run a duty holster when I can. What I'm really enjoying is the boneyard out there selling fix and dent deals. I've bought two so far and they are a fun puzzle to fix. So far so good. Simple problems. Sweet deals. My M187A was missing two scope screws, and could not zero hop- I made my first thread on it, because I figured that if they were gonna make a gun that can't zero hop light BBs then they might want to tell the consumer to only buy hard to find extra heavy .35-.40 Ammo - that or just keep selling them at a discount as boneyard because people figure guns should be able to Zero hop. Man I tell ya I got such a warm welcome from the sniper forum. They were so sensitive to my needs and responsive to my having detailed the fix on a problem that many/most might experience with other M187a. I was complimented and welcomed as a budding mendicant in that forum. But yeah ...it's a good site, and God love ya, I'll try to participate and share our adventures, and review our guns. See y'all around here! Shout out to : Kilt Clan, Texas Steel, Badger, Mark, and the crew at D14!!!!!
