Maybe then you'll appreciate chrono rules.
You wanna know why nobody chronographs propane GBB pistols? Because nobody runs them with extended inner barrels. Do you have any idea how much effort it takes to get a propane pistol to shoot 366 just to be legal to import? Maybe we should be chronoing all Wal Mart springers we see at games too. I guess some day somebody will modify it to shoot 400 FPS.
If he think's he's been wronged, have him post. I love hearsay though, everyone loves drama, but do you wanna know why its not admissable in court? Its unreliable.
I'm not accusing you of lying, nobody is accusing you of lying, but second hand stories are known to be unreliable and exaggerated. Damn, you had to set your hop up twice? I did too! I brought my girlfriend and I did two in about a minute. I don't understand why resetting your hop up requires you to reset your optic.
I have no issue with being chrono'd, I do it whenever I get told to, my issue is with the hop up adjustments and having half an hour wasted in a lineup because QQ a ball of plastic hurt me at 380 fps. And yes, you CAN get a general idea of what to set your hop up to to shoot straight-ish in less than a minute, but when you play in bigger fields and long range engagements are common, you want to shoot as straight as possible which takes a much longer time, time which would otherwise be spent landing accurate hits. I reset my optic because even after spending about a minute setting my hop up to an acceptable level for CQB, it was completely off the dot for some reason, so I had to pull out a dime and turn the knobs a few clicks, wasting time and ammo on making sure my gun shoots the same as it was before. Twice.
