In other words, Kurosagi01, buy one... lol.
Never been a fan of laptops...
lol i'm trying buy a HP laptop seeing they have best reviews
Sorry to hear about your laptop problems - thats what I have never really recommended their laptops. but some people do seem to pick up great laptops from Acer that actually work. even those are few & far between. I would have avoided Acer all together.
I can hit a squirrel in the left nut at 1000m, affirmative
anyone go wolfarmouries in london?
I didnt even know they had a place like that down there near Camden
310mm at 100m is my grouping (cadet so we use a toned down version of the SA80). Air rifles I'm not brilliant with.
Can't wait to get my mits on a L85A1/2
Acer and Emachines are horrible brands and pc makers!
the service and build quality is questionable
thing i hate about laptops is that you have to spend a lot to get a good one, get a brand you know has good service
when i used be in air cadets (had a thing with wanting to join the raf) i was a bloody good shot with the L98 i think it was, thats the nickname it got round our squadron, crnt remember the full name
air cadets the navy and army ones are all like cool versions of scouts you get to do cool military stuff but its not that cool really i dont know the fascination with combat and shooting guns they are defo not toys
my mate has joined the merchant navy, sweet job goes to egypt and places gets weeks off and gets paid amazing wages, its all coz he was in the cadets, je gets paid to go to and learn some navagation and other stuff at i think its uni
we used to think it was gay as fuck in high school like sailor gay, so we used to take the piss out my mate martin
people used to go to just meet mates, i gave up all that after i went to cub scouts it just wasnt fun anymore it seemed like a kids thing to me
Why'd you want an A1? We've just got rid of L98A1s and you wouldn't believe the difference going from single shot to semi-auto makes in terms of shooting. Tell me your grouping when you've had a go, we need some friendly competition (Mine are always with iron sights unless it's a DCCT).
For those that don't know a DCCT is like a more realistic and more fun version of time crisis using the British Army's weapons.
Wait a sec, you're joining the navy in like 8 days aren't you? Good luck with all the training.
L98A1, you were probably one of the people who were told about the A2 long before any paperwork was even written for it...
@Kieran, you don't need to tell me guns aren't toys, literally the first thing we learnt "Never point a weapon not even in jest", it tends to stick when you've seen someone's hair get burnt with the hot gases out the end of an LSW (someone fired half a magazine of blank rounds through the BFA into the guy's head by accident).
How many of you lot have actually been cadets at some point or another/ are joining one of the 3 armed services (the marines don't count, they're navy. I don't care what CVQO/ Edexcel say).
haha dude im talkin years ago when i just left high school a quite bout two year ago my grouping was either a two pence peice or one pence crnt remember, and we had a single and semi-auto from what i remember. I joined thinking it would help me get into the raf but in the end i chose to persue music, i wantd to be in search and rescue
I want one of these babys - Barrett M82A1 50.cal.
'If' i was an American thats what id have, next to that Id have a H&K MP7 sub as secondary & a Sig Saur 232 as a side arm. - obviously with that sort of load out id have to be a robot to carry it all. guns & ammo alone.
I'd have these:
and a shot from my CSS:
If i was American id move to another country maybe like Canada, yes a very below the belt joke.
I dunno if id own a gun for protecting the house i mean i do fine without one here. No one needs an assault rifle thats overkill unless a mob comes over or your taking on an army lol. Seriously if you NEED a gun that is more a problem of society come on there cant be that many burglaries that justify having an arms cache most Americans treat it like a hobby.
Hows a gun gonna help you if your burgled while away from the house?
Im more scared about knife crime tbh.
Ive never seen anyone get shot in the head doesn't sound to nice.
Air rifles should be banned, a guy i know got shot with one at rouken glen golf course hit him right in the leg pierced the skin had to remove it in hospital and fucked his leg for a few weeks. Ive heard people died from burst organs due to air rifles.
Oh yeah im a spoil sprt but i dont feel its fun or cool.
Manslaughter thinking about it shouldnt apply to shooting and killing people for protection, they pre determined that they would shoot a person for burglary ect so if its PRE DETERMINED it means they meant it which is murder. Not like Manslaughter which an accident and such.
Here may as well ask her i have a sata 1 dvd drive but the hard drives are sata 2, i want to enable AHCI but i think that coz the dvd drive is sata one its not allowing it?
Speaking of knife crime today, infact an hour ago me and my cousin were stopped by two gypsies armed to the teeth with knives and asked us where there fucking car was we said ask them over there they might know and 10 minutes later there is a massive fight was epic.
Knife crime is baaaad. A friend of mine got stabbed once... was NOT a good week for me.
.... why am I up this late? Q_Q
Why don't marines count I'm going to the navy in like 7 days.
Ive been threated with a knife before. guy was all talk - he just walked away in the end. but of course if he did stab me i might not be here right now & i also might not be talking like im jackie chan.
worst thing about knife crime is the fact the blades are so easy to find, if your in a place with no people around you can fucking bleed to death
people i see in glasgow have fucking massive chib scars, like its normal stuff
least its not as bad as gunchester (manchester) they have real guns and converted replica which can be fucking dangerous as it wasnt meant to be fired
im not botherd if anyone was like in cadets its just a place to meet mates i understand that
marines are hardcore most people cant take the training or dont meet criteria SAS is even harder to get into
Marines are part of the navy therefore they are not their own armed service, Edexcel/ CVQO treats it as a seperate service when you're doing the BTEC First Diploma in Public Services.
Kieran, you forgot the SBS (They only exist when they're needed and are more shit hot than the SAS thanks to being the best in the marines).
Replicas are bloody stupid, same goes for knives.
1 thing for sure is you can't get a decent £500 laptop anymore in stores and you have to do crazy internet searching
Netbooks? Not in terms of performance perhaps but they're brilliant bits of kit for the price.
i'm not really interested in netbooks,i'm looking for a laptop for around £300-400 with a decent gfx to play l4d and css,don't want super power one since i got my desktop and i'm be using the laptop for chilling out downstairs and doing coursework etc in sixth form
Oh right, fair play then. I'll have a quick scout around for you but I doubt I'll do too well.
i'm mainly looking for a laptop with a 3200 graphic card or better..and i found one for 346 and nows its not on sale anymore bloody mum...
Hmm, I'm not gonna get a chance to look now after my dad's brilliant idea of going for a 2 hour walk to look for presents for my cousins.
£310 HP 6735s opened but unused,what you guys think?
