However, once I shortened it to 109 cm, it felt perfect. However, holding the meterstick for too long my left hand got tired, and I'd imagine it'd be a nightmare to hold the real thing. I guess I better start working out so I won't be the lanky bloke that I am... *embarrassed*
there is a VERY VERY big difference between holding 2 meter sticks together and holding a RS not mistake a SVD for a meter stick

Kingston airsoft, we do it better.
