So what's the deal with TFF?
Just the usual.
It'll work itself out or the dev will fix it. Happens every now and then, but it is kind of annoying
Yep. I'm looking at more stuff now. Not that I'm going to be buying anything right now.
It's just been fucked up so long. It's been at least a week or two.
There were some bugs last week but now it's just fucked, or has been for three days here.
I figured that.
Damn it, Terrence, fix your shit.
Her'll get around to it
Oh god I found out there's an airsoft place down the street from my apartment.
I have to resist buying a fake gun to go play again
I wish I could have done airsoft, but my parents never let me.
Problem #1: Trying to understand memes
I got into when I was a little older and started taking an interest in guns.
Kind of sucked in Washington because there was one place to play but the mecca of indoor fields was where my family ended up moving to.
It was fun while it lasted but there were a lot of things that spoiled it for me too. Kids and all the mallninja adults and shit and "OH I was in the army so I know this kind of thing" and they're a POG.
Part of me doesn't want to drop money on a new gas gun just to go play and then have it ruined again. I really would like an MP7 but the cost for that and mags and shit just to start playing would be a ton of money. I guess I could sell off some of my old stuff too
That's understandable. Do what you feel is best.
I may try getting into airsoft, too. Or paintball. I've always really wanted to do paintball.
I did paintball first (like 10-15) but found myself wanting to do the military sim stuff for airsoft was a natural progression.
Maybe after I get my taxes back, but I might just want to spend that on ammo.
And as long as I keep going back to my parents place, I can still play at the fields there
Cool, man. Hell, I may start playing when you start again. Airsoft is sick.
>don't you wanna be alone on new year's eve?!
Maybe, we'll see if I really feel like dropping 700 on new stuff and not really having the same circle of people I had. I don't know if I'll get back into it or not
I adminned some facebook group way back when and I had a lot of information and knowledge about guns and teching them. But then I stopped so I've lost a lot of that.
Damn, is it really that much? Jeez. I may have to wait a while to start then.
Sick, dude. I'm sure you can regain all that knowledge when you start playing again.
700 might be on the steep end
Well then gun I'm looking at is $250, then three mags is another $150, then I need to try to find an NPAS or the low power bolt because a gas gun with a six inch barrel somehow is doing 400 FPS with 0.2s, that could be another $100, then bbs and a gun case and probably a green laser so I can just laze a target and not actually need to aim. Kind of hard when you have a full face mask
And then I would still probably get my old airsoft stuff out here anyway if I were serious about playing again.
I wish I would have. Guess I should relearn it. I've been out of the game for so long.
>three mags is another $150
Okay, I can see the gun being $250, but Jesus, why the fuck are the mags so expensive?
It's a gas gun.
They have to hold pressurized gas. Usually propane with silicone oil to keep the valves, buckings and o rings from drying out. They're usually machined aluminum.
Mags for electric guns are cheap, usually under 20 unless you have a snowflake.
And the money of those mags and the gun I could probably crack open one of my old ones and work on it but I like the realism of the gas ones.
Fascinating. I did not know that. Now I really want to learn more.
Basically all airsoft guns work by using a compressed gas (whether it's the air around us or something already compressed).
Spring guns use a piston and striker system to compress air to move a BB. Electric guns do the same thing but use a gearbox and electric motor to achieve the compression.
AEGs were and probably are still the most common. Easy firepower, relatively inexpensive and there are a dick ton of kinds you can buy. There were trash guns that needed work to make good but man when you got them working, they worked just fine. $150 AR, and $200 in parts and some TLC and you could do pretty good.
Gas guns generally operate like a real firearm with moving bolts and functioning internals because the "propellant" is self contained in the magazine. Gas guns are generally handguns or the odd bird SMG. There are gas long guns like ARs and AKs but they're usually that much more expensive and finicky.
Gas guns also recoil because of the way they work.
There are recoiling electric guns but they're a bit of an oddity
I bet now that even cheap guns are still pretty good out of the box.
Don't even get me started on battery types and making something "lipo ready".
Shit it's all coming back now
Fascinating. I already love airsoft. Guns are fucking cool.
Thank you for the info. I'm definitely going to try getting into airsoft now.
You can't get into airsoft without a full military equipment kit
Well I'm not in the military. And I don't want to look like a fucking tool.
Take it slow, google shit and ask for advice.
Don't go head in and buy expensive shit only to find out that your gun has problems or you can't play that often. Also higher FPS does not make something a better gun.
I would also learn to tech your own stuff, I think the forum I used to use was called airsoft mechanics. A lot of cool homebrew stuff but also some super awesome technical info and projects.
I don't know if this is close to you but you may want to check it out
Thanks, man. I appreciate all the help and advice.
Actually, I think I know where that is. It's on the other side of the city, but I've heard of it before.
my night has been pretty bad
that guy, who is riding his bike home at 11:00 at night in the rain... thats me.
Aw, I'm sorry, E. Have a hug
and i have to ride my bike back to work, likely in the rain, tomorrow morning!
Yeah dude, might as well pass along useful stuff to someone who can use it.
Just don't get in over your head, that's the best way to get burnt out on something.
Sorry man, but you're home now at least
It's been pouring at my parent's place too
You need a car. Move over here and be my roommate, I'll help you get one.
I'll try not to, thanks.
Ech, sorry to hear that man. Hopefully we can help cheer ya up a bit.
