    I like the violence, and I like winding the players up more by shouting retarded things at them. It's a sport for the hearty.

    You need to join the Army and channel that violence into constructive slaughter and mayhem..... thing is I have never missed the Army but there is something about the crack and bang of a 7.62mm/5.56mm round impacting into someones chest that leaves an emptiness in one's soul :D

    I know quite a number of people in the army, mainly in the marksman and artillery regiments, and they seem to particularly enjoy themselves. Maybe I should just buy a rifle and go hunting instead.

    Youd be surprised how difficult it is in the UK to obtain a firearm legally :laugh: As much as I'd love to spray a kalash in the woods.

    Even with Airsoft their tightening down rules/regulations.

    I know a few stores that will sell airsoft/BB guns to you ONLY if you're a registered member of a legit airsoft club. They occasionally do sell BB guns to non registered members but they have to either send the gun off to have it spray painted some luminescent colour or do it themselves and that can take a around 2-3 days. Just to be safe because police here in the UK have trouble telling whats a real firearm and what isnt...

    Though in their defence there have been a lot of replica handguns that have been 'restored' to fully working order so you cant really blame them for quaking in their boots when they see a man with a table leg in a black bag.

    ^ true story. that actually happened here about a decade ago. Man was standing outside on the balcony having a cig and cops thought the black bag he had with him had a rifle in it so they KoS'd him.

    Its a sad situation, I dont even think the guy knew what hit him. cops didnt know what was in the bag till they had killed him and checked it out.

    I dont think for one second that the cops followed protocol, as there isnt any witness reports that say the cops called out and asked the guy to step away from the bag or surrender himself nor was he being aggressive. Guy was simply just having a smoke

    artillery personal still as firearms. although it sounds exciting to engage in close combat vs infanitry with 155mm gun it is a bit uncomfortable

    I think Tatty got up to a lot of shit while he was in the forces, A lot of which hes not allowed to talk about.

    He knows a lot of stuff your average civilian will never know or ever find out, Not unless Tatty gets captured by MOSSAD and interrogated about certain black ops which happened in the past.

    Come to think about it... sounds like a certain game from a certain franchise from a certain publisher from a certain developer I have long since lost any kind of love for.

    Though with that said... If there was any CoD:TattyOne Edition, Id buy a copy.

    Did Royal Signals (Comms Int), Artillery (SMIG - Sergeant Major Instructor Gunnery), Infantry and some specialist stuff over almost 28 years, thing is with an AK.... in the real world, you need the whole magazine to drop just one or two... high recoil low accuracy, I do in fact have an AK at home, made safe of course, licensed, secured and inspected annually, i actually got it from the clutches of a dead person (not mentioning race, creed or religious leaning so as not to offend anyone), sad thing is I didn't kill him..... I missed but my mate dropped him, may have had something to do with the fact that I had a mouthful of chicken supreme at the time and it's difficult to get the breathing right when your gobs full :D

    Here you guys are talking about how inaccurate the AK is - but in counter strike, the AK is just so overfucking powered i absolutely refuse to play the game.

    Im not butt hurt,
    Im not mad,
    Im not angry,
    I wont 'cry more noob'

    I just wont play the god damn game...

    Then they introduced the M4A1-S and now I stopped playing :) Flawless accuracy maintained over a 20 round burst, and has a faster fire rate than the AK47, so if you're panic spraying after walking round a corner in a CQB, M4A1-S wins every time unless you get a mouth full of MAG-7.
    I only ever play support, so I'm usually rocking a MAG-7 or XM1014. Besides that I'm partial to the scout, or M40A if you're playing BF3.

    cant agree fully with this.
    high recoil yes, but if you put it stable on your shoulder recoil is manageable. it just isnt good for free hand shooting like mp5 for example.
    accuracy is very good as soon as you learn how to aim. i never had problems to down my targets at shooting range both and 150 and 300m. 12 bullets 4 targets. i could do it with 4 but officers wanted us to shoot on bursts not single shoots. dont forget dragunov is same system.

    I agree with most of that, perhaps where the differing experience is comes simply from range, must of my range work was at 400 - 600m, at those ranges it just does not really cut the mustard (in comparison with some other offerings), at 200-400m I agree it can be very good, however most fire it in bursts for a reason!

    well like every tech it has pros and cons. i can make quite big list for both for ak. i havnt exp other weapons so cant make real comparison.

    accurate shots with ak require at least few seconds spent in aiming. on shooting range is easy. there isnt muzzles pointing your direction.
    in real life situation i would too just shoot in bursts pointing generally in necessary direction no matter what i hold in my hands.
    ...
    on second thought if i am in kt or jt i will enjoy few seconds at view of my victim in the scope :D

    edit: since invention of the hand held machine guns close/mid range combat is more tactics/operation wise then shooting skill

    I spent much of my time with the M16 and latterly with the C8 Carbine, although in my early days had to put up with the 7.62mm SLR and various other prehistoric bits and pieces.

    @ Rcoon..... not fried chicken lol, Chicken supreme is a favorite "boil in the bag" ration.

    I have a friend who is a cadet whose platoon/battalion is a descendant (can i call it a descendant?) of the Royal Fusilier's. He goes on camping trips with the cadets cuz hes a marshall, they pay him for it, but they give him like a butt tonne of rations to take home - we are talking like car boot loads of rations.

    Thats all he ever eats and he complains that he never gains weight. tried to teach him to cook though but he doesnt like it.

    Being his friend though means i get some of rations he cant stow away which is kinda cool....


    Not good for long term consumption

    QUOTE]Window 8.1 sucks!!!its big stepback from Window Vista/Window 7...Microsofts Software Clown are going backwords!!!!What a stupid looking interface!!!I will never ever upgrade to Window 8 and thinking about Apple!!!!!!!!!!!!
    [/QUOTE]

    Is anyone else getting slightly annoyed by posts doing nothing but insulting the windows 8 interface, I know they've only spurred up again due to 8.1 but after seeing posts like this in every microsoft related thread since the first 8 release preview, i'm starting to have to actively avoid microsoft related threads just because i'm getting really bored of the exact same posts every time

    I mean i'm not going to praise the interface since it really isn't great but i've used it since release and while it isn't good, posts about it are smothering anything actually interesting

    now i've said that


    anyone here play dota 2?
