  1. Sy81 got IF and RIF the wrong way round. IF is an Imitation Firearm, basically a brightly coloured or clear body. RIF is a Realistic Imitation Firearm. One that looks real enough to fool the average person into thinking it is not a toy. Otherwise though, the advise is sound. I'd not recommend any M14 for indoor play, even the shorter SOCOM type (I have a SOCOM and a full length, they are not good for close quarters) and a DMR won't be allowed for close quarters as you cannot use them indoors or at ranges of less than 60foot.
  2. ANZI Z87 is the rating you are looking for on American products. Ideally ANZI Z87+ which is a higher standard and what you generally get on products like Revision and ESS military spec goggles. The UK ratings are EN 166F (lowest) EN 166B (middle rated) EN 166A ( the best). Due to how they are tested though the frames are considered part of the testing so the lenses might in some shooting glasses be EN 166A rated, but the over all product will be rated as EN 166F (the lowest fail point). I don't believe any spectacle type product can be rated over EN 166F. My recommendation would be to go with military spec goggles and a lower mesh mask. I'd not recommend a paintball mask unless the grill at the front was tight enough hole wise to keep bbs out.
  3. Electric pistols are underpowered compared to gas. So a problem with them (as well as several other issues) is that in colder weather people just don't feel the hits from a 200 fps gun due to layers, they struggle to hear the hit also. Even short barrel gas pistols do 260fps plus in winter and it does make a surprising difference. Plus the trigger response on electric pistols is terrible. When you pull the trigger you almost wonder if anything is going to happen before it fires.
  4. The short version is no gun under any circumstances will be allowed at any of our sites if it is more powerful than the site rules permit.
  5. Yes it matters. Otherwise, there would be no such rule.
  6. As long as they are with any of the F&O sites it is all good.
  7. I'd never buy the VFC, they are terrible guns for the money internally. Look the part though, amazing wall hangers. The G&G is middle of the road looks wise but performs much better than the VFC. I would 100% go for the G&G if I was on a compromise budget. The TM with a motor upgrade and the Eagle 6 M100 spring set combined with running on deans connectors and ideally a mosfet is a legendary gun that would put most guns at twice the price to shame. Out of the box as is it puts the G&G and VFC to shame.

  9. From experience if you have an extended inner barrel running through the suppressor. There is a better than average chance the gun will fail the chrono test. Truthfully though that is what the chrono is there for. To make sure. If you get to a site or one of our retail locations. I'm sure someone could help.
  10. Best advice would be go down but NOT on a Friday (closed Sat) Not a Sunday (closed Monday) because the chrono's will be out at game events over the weekend. Best bet would be a Tue/Wed/Thur.
  11. In this instance the 4th and 18th of May as well as 1st June.
  12. The dates will follow every 2 weeks from the last one mate. So it is easy to work out when the dates will be in May.
  13. http://www.yorkbarbell.com/ Just sayin!
  14. Lol, controlled fire like semi.
