eh, I'm not gonna lie I live comfortably. But I'm more of an advocate for the work hard/play hard mentality than anything else. I got a great job for a 16 year old and my money pretty much goes toward college, car payments, reenacting/airsoft, and then all the other regular 16 y/o stuff (food, movies, gf), in that order. I'm sure once I need to start paying for all that fun stuff like insurance, a house, a family, ect ect I'll have a lot less to spend on reenacting/airsoft by the end of the month.
Alrighty, thats enough about my personal finances for now. Time to get back to the original topic. Carrying on...

WWII airsoft is pretty much dead and non-existant here in the KC area, so I've been working on upgrading my modern gear. I've recently obtained some Russian body armor that has to be cleaned up and repaired before it joins my Afgahnka load-out, but in the meantime I'm playing Future warrior. My multicam loadout just got completly modernized. ;D ;D

Some people are like Slinkies. They're not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Very cool, I have a '42 Nagant with all the goodies. I built a plate out of channel iron thinking it would be a good long range target. I shot it in half 1st time I hit it. 200 yards. They are really fun to shoot.
This came in the mail yesterday, from my father. He hand-casts stuff like this for fun. He'd made one for me, my brother and my nephew. Notice the golf ball projectile. It's made to fire them. Finally, I've found a real use for golf ball! If anyone cares, the pattern is a 1/3 scale Confederate coehorn mortar. I haven't gotten to fire it yet and probably won't until next weekend at the earliest. I've seen my nephew's mortar fired right after Dad made it (the first one he'd built) and the golf balls went about 100 yards (maybe a little further) at about the elevation shown in the photo, with around 70 grains of black powder. Just in case anyone asks, Dad doesn't make anything to sell, as he's retired and once told me that he didn't want to turn a hobby into something that wasn't fun anymore. That being said, the man has skills. This is his pride and joy, a hand-built, 3/4 M1841 6 pdr field gun. He even made the wheel by hand as well, using tools that probably were not even in the same level as what they used in the 1800s! He's working right now on a breech-loading 30MM gun using hand-made (non-standard) cartridges and a pre-1900 breech block design, which also has a lot of bronze parts in the breech block area. It'll only be for shooting blanks, and it will be able to drop right onto the carriage for his 1841 gun. I've got to get back to Florida to shoot it when he's done with that!
Yeah, I can see it now... You show up at the driving range and ask for a bucket of golf balls. They ask if you want to reant clubs you say no. All the other golfers are wondering, "What the heck is this noob doing?" Out comes the cannon the looks on people faces would be priceless!...Muahaha!!!!

It's the new "USV artillery" model Single Action Army from Cimarron Firearms. Here's the text from their website:
U.S.V. Model. The Indian Wars are over and the 1873 U.S. Cavalry Models are in a state of disrepair. They are returned to the factory or to Springfield arsenal to be refurbished. There, the barrels are changed from 7 1/2” to 5 1/2” and working parts replaced. They are inspected by Rinaldo A. Carr and returned to service. Many of these firearms see action in the Spanish American War of 1898. Most are issued to artillery batteries and are known as the Artillery Model. In 1898 the first U.S. Volunteer Cavalry is formed under the command of Theodore Roosevelt. This group of gallant young cowboys from all parts of the American West, are recruited in a San Antonio bar and trained at Camp Wood, Texas. They would carry more than 100 of these Artillery models bravely in the charge up San Juan Hill. These historic American cowboys will be known forever as the “Roughriders”.
It's actually pretty accurate for ad copy. I've been drooling over this ever since it came out earlier last year!

Good Golly that is BEA.........utiful!!!! I just got my Ruger Vaquero and I love it!! Im just starting to get into Cowboy action shooting, and I just went to my first event up in Nevada city, and it was so much fun shooting the ruger, but shooting the MArlin 1877 rifle was awesome. Once again, you have a beautiful piece right there!
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
