The Battle Is Over

30 September 2007 - 04:19 PM

So, the battle for new york is over. That was one of the best wars I've ever been to. Even though we didn't have too many out of staters, we still kicked some ass. All of the hosting duties went very smoothly and, apart from the bees, we didn't have any problems.
I'm tired now, I'll post details later.

Petg Breach

09 June 2007 - 11:08 PM

OK, so after hearing many questions and requests regarding a PETG breach, I decided to make one. This is my first sort of write-up, so feedback would be appreciated. I tried to be as specific as possible.
First off, here are the materials you will need:

PETG: about 6 inches of it
1/2" brass: 3/4 inch length
1/2" CPVC: About 3/4 inch length
1/2" PVC: about an one and a quarter inches
5/8" brass (with a slot cut into it): The slot is 1 and 3/4 inches long, and is cut about 13/16 inches from the end. The whole length is about 5 and 3/4 inches.
First, dremmel out the CPVC so that the 1/2" brass fits snuggly about 1/4" inside of it.

Next, Put a seal of teflon tape around the 1/2" brass.

Then, push the CPVC into the PVC all the way to the end of the PVC.

Then, push the 5/8" brass into the PVC so that it goes into the same end as the 1/2" brass is sticking out of.

Last, push the PETG in the breach, and it's ready for use. Use it for whatever you can think of, or maybe put a magazine/clip on it.

The breach works by having the PETG seal against the 1/2" brass in the back. The 5/8" brass is to hold the dart in place as the PETG bolt(?) is moved into place.

Measuring Ranges

12 May 2007 - 10:04 PM

I'm tired of seeing so many arguments about ranges seeming strange, and so much differentiation in how people are measuring them. Today, my friends and I were curious about what ranges our guns could achieve, so we used the following method:
We used a tape measure and chalk to mark out ten foot increments on a straight, flat section of my street. We then wrote the accompanying numbers next to the marks.
This took us only about two to three minutes to do. This method was very simple, and gave us very accurate measurements. It's really basic, but I figured I'd post about it in an attempt to help reduce the amount of inaccuracy pertaining to gun ranges.

Bulk Ordering Foam

07 May 2007 - 07:05 PM

Basically, I'm thinking of bulk ordering FBR, but I don't know where to buy it, or how they ship it. I found some websites, but I would like to hear what you all have to say. One thing that I'm worried about is how my parents will react if a truck load of foam shows up at my front door, so information on how it is shipped would be appreciated.
