I'd like to make two points:

1. Screws don't necessairally have to be pointy on the end. Those are called "Wood Screws". Then there's "Metal Screws" that are flat on the end. Use those; you'll be fine.

2. We've been shooting fishing weights covered in hot glue at each other for years. Nobody's complained yet.

It's amazing what absolutely retarded stuff you guys argue over, and with such passion.

Congratualtions guys, you've just re-conceptualized airsoft.

I'm sure none of you will even recognize me, since I'm an old vet who never nerfs anymore, but I know potential when I see it. As a modder myself, I have some ideas.

I like how that gun looks, the fake laser has potential to be made into a real LAM unit. I bet you could easily disassemble an old laser pointer, remove the flashlight, and install the laser. Flashlights, too, could work. One of those new LED flashlights would make a nice addition, and would blind your opponents. You could even vamp up the current light. 'Remodel' the inside of the grip, and you could get a 9V inside there, offering a higher voltage, therefore brightness. You could mount so much stuff inside that gun!

Were it mine--and trust me, I'm keeping my eyes open for a gun like this--here's what I'd do:

Replace the barrel with copper for homemade micros. I love copper, it gives the gun some weight, even if it does make it front heavy. I'd make mine a bit longer than yours as well.

Replace the trigger spring with a stronger one.

Modify with laser pointer or beef up current light system.

Make a CPVC silencer with spiral porting to fit over the new barrel--mostly for looks.

Electrical tape the grip for better...grip.

Have fun, guys.

That's strange, I thought fdisk formatted by cylinders. I'm telling you guys, get a copy of "Partition Magic". It's the most kick-ass way to format, granted you have to have a running copy of windows to use it.

Indeed, XP is quite nice as far as features, reliablility, and support go. I'm still not happy about how it devours memory, but most newer machines these days have well over 256MB ram. There's really no reason to program efficiently.
