Well its been awhile since I checked in here, real life has kept me busy. I have also picked up another hobby, one that drains the wallet more than nerf ever did.

Posted Image

First pic is a Systema PTW M4-A1 Max airsoft rifle with a few extras added on to it.

Posted Image

This is a stock TM 5.1 Hi-Capa, I will be added some metal upgrades to it soon.

Posted Image

This is a TM Detonics .45, its a small gun but, on propane its very accurate and gives a good kick.

With the Systema you can upgrade with RS parts much easier, also when it comes to tuning gun just pop out one cylinder and pop in another. As for the TM 5.1 there is so many upgrade parts available, plus replacement parts are very easy to come by.

Congrats mate, Systemas are gorgeous guns. What kind of sights do you have on it? Have your two cylinder sets yet?

Did you build it yourself or buy it built?

It was a pre built gun, I did enough research to know the kits were giving many people problems. As for cylinders, I made the mistake of getting Red/Yellow when I should have went Blue/Black. The Red M150 is fun to blink at cans etc at over 500FPS but you can't game with it here in Ontario.

For a while I was into airsoft but I got my real gun and that became a but better. I got nerf because I can't use airsoft indide to have my faux swat or police games, but airsoft still is fun. Plan on maybe getting a cheap aeg.

I have done a few indoor games this season but, the late nights were murder on me the next day. I hope to once the outdoor season revs up again get to at least 2-3 games a month. Missed out on one all night ZOMBIE game, that went from dusk to dawn and was supposedly a blast.

I can see you can highlight things and do your best to be a wanna be forums admin. Now tell me that statement could be views as referring to "NERF WaRS". Also even if it was referring to such sports as paintball and airsoft, one could ask does that mean topics about just collecting such items as well?.

Now heres a good question, If your so concerned about board rules Mr Wanna Be admin, why did you not just report my post. In fact you first made your smart ass remark, than edited your post by than actually contributing to the topic. I also notice now you seem to be keeping score :lol: , did I miss something? Is there some sort of game, that you need points to win? If so tell what prize is that you are so desperately seeking to win by pretending to police these forums.

I wanna be the first to say that you might want to calm down. Renegade has been here MUCh longer, has a MUCh lower member # and is generally much more respected member then you. My account is about as old as yours but i don't try to insult those who are of a higher standing. I wonder if your trying to get banned. Its like watching a kid argue with a Vietnam veteran about what happend in the war.

It seems to me that Renegade wasn't really even trying ti start something. He gave you a bit of sarcasm (if you know what that is) and then posted something reasonable to the topic. He was givin you grief, as he has the right to do once in a while and you thought it was a fight. I would watch my step if I were you, because the ones who aren't just "Wannabe Mods" will not tolerate what you did.

Again, I'm not trying to Backseat mod, just trying to look out and give a fellow poster some advice.

Allow me to explain in shortest terms.


This is THE premier NERF site. While most of the members here tend to take up the other "toy" shooting sports (airsoft, paintball, spudding, etc.), it is generally known that the owners / founders of the site (cxwq and VACC, Groove and Julie) have requested that there be an absolute minimum of "other war game" topics, for the reasons that this thread has been spiraling down into.

Truth be known, I was an avid stock-class paintball player, and time and circumstances have all but eliminated my ability to play anymore. Yet, I won't harp about my Phantom VSC or my Carterized TASO Tunnel Rat guns.

I understand your enthusiasm about your recent acquisition, but Ren is just re-iterating what has been common knowledge around NerfHaven. Keep it Nerf.

1500 bucks for that thing? Wouldn't you want a good Colt, or Bushmaster AR-15 variant? Shoot some real ammo, go hunting, etc.? I may be off-base, and I can understand enthusiasts of airsoft being spendy with their "toys" (I don't mean that in a condescending way, like my PB markers, boat and kayak are my "toys"), but wow...that's a whole lot of money for a BB gun.


Yeah. Post counts don't mean a whole lot here as much as join dates and community respect. Why? Because most NH members don't last much longer here than a few months or so. We're not as loose with the rules here as the other sites like NerfHQ. Yeah, we're snobs.

Now that you know, suck it up, drop it, move on.

Thank you Piney for clearing things up!. I never in any way intended for my thread to be a Nerf vd Airsoft or any other toy gun type sport. Each of these sports has its plus sides and down sides, and I personally will never say one is better than another. My post was intended to show another hobby which I recently started, that I enjoy as much as I do Nerfing/Modding. With that said I respect how the admins here are trying to preserve all things NERF!. This site and the people here are a big reason why my whole family have our own indoor nerf wars, Christmas day was no exception lots of fun.

As for getting real guns would to but, Canadian laws make it very difficult to obtain such items. Even airsoft has been put into a classification making almost illegal to own/use. Yah its expensive but after doing a a lot of research I came to the conclusion that this was the best way for me to go. You should see what we pay in Canada for those guns! at $1500 us we pay 2700.

AR-15 variants are illegal up here, so us folks in my area tend to stick with .22's, or something like a bolt-action .243 or bigger. Our firearms laws are ridiculously strict.

I find that the most fun I get out of shooting is with my .22. I have 12 gauges, .45s and many other guns in my collection... I get the most enjoyment out of targeting with my Marlin 17 short/long .22.

I think as soon as you get into the higher gun classes you are just wasting your time with targeting, unless that is you hunt.

Oh, dang.

I forgot about Canada.


I'm sorry. I mean REALLY sorry for you guys. Firearms laws are really sucky there.


I agree, Metal Bullet. I only shoot .22 in a Ruger 10/22 rifle, and a Ruger Mk II tapered barrel pistol. My friend brings along his tube-fed Marlin, his 10/22, his mag-fed Remington bolt-action, and a small collection of High Standard, AMT, and Remington handguns all in .22 LR and .22 WMRF.

That makes for a whole day of fun plinking and shooting things like a softball wedged into a tree. And the ammo doesn't cost an arm and a leg for a day's fun.


Although we hunt here (rural Hawaii), I haven't really tried yet. I might see if I can get hooked up to a goat eradication program for the forestry areas (they're a big problem here, wild pigs and deer). Good hunt, and good eats.

Yes for most Canadians we have to make trips to Las Vegas, and goto the shooting store. Once there we can shoot many guns that we will never see in Canada. I once owned a few RS firearms but, once I started having kids I turned them in to the police. So now its my big family and indoor NERF WARS on most weekends, and my other hobby which will not be named every once and awhile.

Does the Ruger have a wood stock? Those are beautiful guns.

Remingtons are good to. I used to own remington BB gun rifles and my friend has a ... don't know what model but has one of their .22s.
