You should check if that part is even necessary to operate the gun. It's possible that the part is a redundant safety mechanism that you won't need like the magazine-lock or the boltsled-lock on the Longshot.
I can say for sure it IS necessary, as it is the piece that the spring pushes against in order to drive the plunger rod down the tube.
Split! Happy birthday! I wish you many more great years of foam flinging...
Note: Any errors will get fixed when I can be on an actual computer (around midnight) once I get home from SoCal...
--> Not to mention the fact that I havent met anyone up there I havent liked yet.
P.S.: And Langley, sucks you wont be there... woulda been great nerfin with y'all again.
General Range is about 48 feet, suspended on clothesline from a drop ceiling. It is attached via pulleys, so it is possible to pull the target in on closer ranges, or to check your shots. This was designed by a friend and I when we got bored. I would have had more pics and possibly a video, but the CA on duty tonight made us take it down. I fully intend to try again when we get the chance. Credits go to FA24 for targets, and the idea of mounting them as workable targets. The darts fly right through the paper from the 50' ranges, and often hit the wall another 10-15 feet behind it.

Expires Dec 25th.
Take advantage of this while you can.
I doubt I can score another discount with these guys after Dec 25th.
Bought 3 of em... look great on the wall of my dorm room...
I am wondering about the stands... Looking at the video, it seems like some pieces of CPVC would work... What are the measurements of it (height x width)?
However, as someone who played in the first Grid War (Talio's War), I will vouch for the arena, and that it was a blast last time I was there.
Okay, so the 26th is looking really solid. I talked to the guy and he says it ours, we just have to get on the books. Like last year it will be 300 bucks. So what we'll do is everyone sends me 5 or 10 bucks and I give it to the guy for a downpayment. Then we'll subtract it from the total 300 and devide it by the number of attendees who actually arrive. Your initial payment is of course non-refundable.
....... Other Important info ......
I'll put down $5 for me, and $5 for a friend of mine, but at this point, we are both still maybes, but it's looking like a strong likelihood that I will make the drive down at least.
EDIT: Ice Nine... You gonna be making darts by any chance?
EDIT: I am no longer able to go...
I can say, though, that the last time I went to Grid, it was great. Perhaps we shall meet up at the next one. Once again, sorry I can't make it. Have fun!
Also, if anyone from the Western New York area wants to go down, let me know.
That would eliminate the bunkers in those areas from play for the other team, since dead players would be spawning right on top of you. Though, those littls plywood houses might be very useful as spawn points. , or even as flag points with the original bases used as spawn points.
I was just using the Grid as a reference point, because I knew that was something we all had in common. This is definately not limited to that venue. It was just a way of offering some form of visualization to my words. However, The plywood houses as flag points, with original bases as spawn points offers more sheltering to the respawning players.
EDIT: I can RSVP for 4/24 only, other days I can't make it. However, I can also assure you I can RSVP for 3 people (Me + 2 Friends). Also, thanks for the invite, Talio!!!
- Being impressed by the two guys using Longshots
Why thank you very much! My biggest highlight of the day had to be the final kill of a round I got with stock streamlines on someone, I believe it was VACC, with a +bow...
- Using the Longshots to surprising success against much better blasters.
- Pistol rounds were amazing.
- The slick floor made it easy to run and slide.
- Watching my friend go running forward armed only with a Longshot.
- I got a chance to meet a lot of the people on the forums.
- Being able to use my AT3k in one round of fighting, to decent results, before it broke.
- Venue was alright, there were plenty of bunkers to take cover behind.
- Found out I could provide more effective reconnaissance while using the Longshot than covering fire
(-) From my friend, Kris: He said his biggest highlight was in a pistol round against Talio when the nitefinder mis-fired 3 times. Then when Talio came around to barrel-tap him, it magically fired!
*More to come as I think of them...*
EDIT: Just wondering if anyone in the Western New York area would want to carpool down (I'll drive)? Just PM me if you're interested. Thanks!
EDIT 2: Just heard back from a friend, and I got at least one more interested, and I'm still waiting to hear back from a couple others.
Yeah, push probably makes more sense. Still, the spawn area is tricky. The bases are the only areas that are routinely out of play. Anywhere else and you might have an opposing player bunkered in your team's spawn point. The oly other option I really see is to have people spawn in the corner of the room by the opposing team's base.
What about spawning in areas near mid-field? In reference to The Grid's set up:
Blue's base would be back by the garage bay area.
Red's base would be at the opposite end, by the locker box.
Blue's spawn point would be at the wall, halfway from either base, across from the doors.
Red's spawn point would be at the wall, also halfway from either base, on the same side as the doors.
I don't live in the area, but I do have a GPS that locates the places to restaurants and such. So if we got there early enough I'm sure we could get a bite. What time are you planing on getting there. I was planning on 8:00-8:30 since I have a one and a half hour drive. I could go earlier though.
My friend and I actually found a Denny's down the street from the hotel we will be stayin at... Its about 5 minutes or so from The Grid... I was thinking about gettin there around 0730 or 0800 that morning.
