[release]Since Jenkem is autistic, I figured I would make a better and newly improved OP. [highlight]For all of you new people to these boards: You're welcome to stay, don't be an idiot and post wrong shit in the wrong thread.[/highlight] Included in this thread are some helpful pointers, tips, and other useful shit about airsoft. [B]Listen to our advice.[/B] It can only help you, we will prevent you from doing any shit you will regret. We also have a bunch of community things we do, such as a Facepunch gearwhores video chat, located at tinychat.com/fpgearwhores or ArmA 2 shenanigans, as well as quite a few other things. [highlight]and for FUCK'S SAKE don't start any arguments, we already have enough off topic discussions as it is.[/highlight][/release] Seeing as this is the first thread you might look at (if you're new here), you might want to know some unwritten rules around here. Some of us prefer some things that others don't but we can all probably agree on what is below. The general rule of thumb around here is that you should lurk a bit, as in any forum, and realize what's okay to post and what isn't. [B]Use common sense.[/B] Well, as this isn't a rules thread, it's a questions and information thread, let's get to the information. [B][highlight]Useful threads[/highlight][/B] You may want to check some of these out. Sure, there's probably more, but these are the most recent AFAIK. [RELEASE][B]Stupideye's "This is Russian Gear thread"[/B] [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1013480-This-is-Russian-Gear-Thread[/url] It's about Russian gear.[/release] [RELEASE][B]CubemanV2's Review threads[/B] [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/867425-Gun-Reviews-MegaThread[/url] (Gun Reviews) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/886626-Gear-Reviews-MegaThread[/url] (Gear Reviews) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/991386-MRE-Reviews[/url] (MREs) These are worth a read.[/RELEASE] [RELEASE][B]Kawaii's Super-Fucking-Useful Threads[/B] [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1000041-Kawaii-s-Super-Fucking-Useful-Guide-About-Reloading[/url]! (This thread is about reloading) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/995260-A-Review-Of-The-Chicom-Mother-Fucking-Chest-Rig[/url] (Mutha Fucking Chicom) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1027385-Kawaii-s-Goddamn-Guide-For-Mother-Fucking-Noob-Faggots[/url] (Mother fucking Noob Faggot Guide)[/RELEASE] [RELEASE][B]Deathmog's Review Threads[/B] [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1031757-Deathmog-s-Reviews-of-Cheap-Tactical-Gear-(56k-warning[/url]) (Cheap Gear thread bitches) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1046968-Review-of-the-G-amp-G-Combat-Machine-M4A1-Blowback-Model[/url] (G&G Combat Machine review)[/RELEASE] [RELEASE][B]Metal Man's Skeletal Stock Thread, Fenriswolf's PDW thread and Wordworth's STALKER thread.[/B] [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/996390-Guide-Got-a-Skeletal-Stock-Wrap-That-Crap-Up[/url]! (mmmmm, paracord) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/958933-Dboy-PDW-Review-Accessories-Included[/url] (It's about a PDW) [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/802196-S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-Loadout-Thread[/url]. (A cool read for STALKER fans.)[/RELEASE] Of course, don't necropost, and let's move on to some other shit, seeing as those threads compress this OP into a smaller OP, so a lot of stuff won't be included here. Now, here's some shit from the last thread, as well as the shit from the stickied thread, but nobody really pays attention to it, so I might as well post it here. The Sticky Thread's Content is below. [B]The following is ripped from [URL="http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?p=22787030#post22787030"]here[/URL], and is therefore not something I take credit for.[/B] [B]BY COMING HERE YOU ARE ACCEPTING THAT YOU WILL GET:[/B] -Constructive Criticism that you probably wont listen to anyways, but should if you know what's good for you. -Better Ideas from other people that you probably don't want to admit are better. -Most likely flamed by BlueSaint at some point for calling something the wrong name or something. ( Clip =/= Magazine ) -The website you are shopping at is probably shitty. (see below for good sites) :siren:[B]Good websites you should shop from:[/B]:siren: [Code] Clothing/Gear/Camo http://www.hassayampasurplus.com - Based in the US of A, fantastic costumer service, and great obscure camos. www.ebairsoft.com - Based in asia, has some cheap offbeat camo. www.flecktarn.co.uk - You'd never guess what they sell. Great selection, good service by phone. www.polimil.co.uk - Have a browse, they have great service and a large selection of useful bits and bobs. www.opsgear.com - This site is the place to get gear for your airsoft needs. They also have a small selection of guns but this site is dedicated to gear. www.bdu.com - American site primarily for buying combats. www.soviet-propaganda.com/ - Good customer support, based in Russia. www.skippersmilitarysupply.com/ - US based, Russian gear. www.redforces.com/ - Soviet/modern gear. Airsoft Stores UK www.fire-support.co.uk - Reasonable pricing (for the UK anyway), good service. www.airsoftscotland.co.uk - Complete rip-off, although they get good deals on Pyros. USA www.airsoftextreme.com - Easy to navigate and has some of the best guns in stock. www.airsplat.com - I'm joking, seriously. Do not buy from here. www.airsoftgi.com - AirsoftGI is basically the god of Airsoft stores. There are almost no complaints from them but apparently there Returns need some work. www.evike.com - Not reliable on shipping dates, but they have a large selection. Hong Kong/China Dealers www.wgcshop.com - Okay prices, Seem to have to get quotes on the price before you actually buy. www.rsov.com - Brilliant service, postage is steep unless you buy in bulk, in which case it's the cheapest site around. www.redwolfairsoft.com - Another Chinese retailer, good prices, some rare pieces. www.ebaybanned.com - Brilliant prices, good service and delivery. The horror stories are from people who didn't read the on-screen instructions when buying. Canadian Dealers VelocityArms.ca - No opinion, Seems to carry a LOT of things, almost looks like a canadian AGI. CapitalAirsoft.ca - No opinion, A hodgepodge of high-range and low range AEGs, doesn't have many in stock at a time. BuyAirsoft.ca - No opinion, Hard to navigate, OK selection. Mach1Airsoft.com - No opinion, A hodgepodge of high to mid-range AEGs, terrible site design and not many parts to buy.[/Code]:siren:[B]READ THIS IF YOU ARE FROM THE UK AND WANT TO START AIRSOFTING, THERE ARE LAWS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT![/B]:siren: [code] Some good websites to purchase Two-Tone weapons from are: www.zerooneairsoft.co.uk - will spray paint any weapon two tone for FREE www.actionhobbies.co.uk - has a selection of specially made two tone weapons www.airsoftworld.co.uk - same as above and apparently two tone any weapon other than GBB for 20 quid www.surplusstore.co.uk - has a wide selection of Two-Tone weapons and various other bits and bobs www.fire-support.co.uk - has a small selection of non-UKARA (another term for Two-Tone) which apparently will also two tone any weapon for 15 quid if asked by email [/code]Thank You And Goodnight! :siren:[B]WANT TO KNOW WHAT BARREL LENGTH YOUR GUN IS?

Previous thread(s): [URL="http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=866476"] Version 1 [/URL] [RELEASE]I hope some of you newer guys to the subforum, as well as us older guys enjoy this ([I]Non-Autistic[/I] ~New~ Questions thread. Remember, you new guys are always welcome, but please keep in mind that you should listen to our advice, and overall not try to be a jackass. Don't try to post new threads like "Is this gun good?" or "I have a few questions about airsoft" Post those and any other questions here, and you will be alright by our standards, and as stated earlier, let's cut the arguing down.[/RELEASE]
Yall need to use this thread. Deathmog made the best one.
Codemonkey stamp of approval.
ok cool you guys made new question threads while i was at school. i had a whole new thread written up in a notepad file waiting for the last one to close, and even though i made the last two thinking i had at least set a precedent you guys just couldn't wait! /moanwhinebitchetc
Jenkem made the first one which was shit, so we all rushed to make one that wasn't shit. Short answer.

[QUOTE=CodeMonkey3;27335696]We didn't, that's why we made another thread.[/QUOTE] whatever im not gonna fill the first page of "v3" with this argument, i'm still kinda pissed though.
what pants would go with a non-collared leather jacket? i was thinking about wearing one unzipped and have a bulletproof vest underneath it.
