Yea I was there in person, I just don't remember if I had made a mistake telling them my user name...

TTAC3... That's cool I was actually looking at the FACT website the other day. I saw videos of the place looks amazing. I live in Mississauga I would have to make time to goto the place tho.

ahh I see, my bad thought u called for AV +1 on the TTAC3 part too, I was there Friday night and it was some really intense cqb action, always watching your six as you never know who is gonna sneak up on you, teamwork really plays a big part in that environment.

Friday was awesome!

Except for when I got shot in the face after the game was over.

Wait that was fun too.

@ Shatter

BOOM! HEADSHOT!

jk... hehe :P

But yes, I was excited when I saw the info on FACT. If I have the time I will drop by FACT for sure. I read and saw lots of short clips on CQB combat tactics before, such as what position to hold your pistol(vs. what you see on T.V. holding pistol pointing up with both hands tucked against the side of your chest... sigh.. ) when you are at a corner, etc etc...

Also, been interested in defensive parts of Systema(only defensive parts against guns or knives pointing at you). Hope I can properly learn it someday.

Again, so much to do and so little time.. I have a young one now, and parent-hood drains your free time faster then a vampire at a blood bank... hahah...


P.S - for TTAC3, and practical shooting courses, which GBB pistol is the best? My personal fav and what I am planning to get is the 1911 MEU, a few people on here have advised its accurate and a pistol with a nice build. But I was also looking at the M9 IA version(if I'm not mistaken, with the bottom 20mm rail)... Also, friend recommended the Glock 27, which is small and easy to pull from my cross-draw holster. Any recommendations? What are most of you guys using? Choices choices....

Tm hicapa is thes best, 1911 mags will have u gassing up more often between games I find

also, tons of nice doodads to put on it too

we do something at TTAC3 called CAPS which is like IPSC style shooting, the most popular pistol in use is the TM Hicapa 5.1 that says something.

HiCapa...

I seen it before, this is the 1911 variant right? I don't think its for sale any longer in Canada... Or at least legally?

****Actually, I have kind of an urgent question...****

I was just looking at my rifle just now close up in detail. Looking at the semi-clear plastic main body parts of my ICS M4 CQB, I found some(maybe 4-5) "fractures" or "scratch"..

I am not sure how to describe this. They're not really cracks per-say, as these "fractures" doesn't go right thru the plastic(plastics crack kind of like glass, at least that's what I think?), but they are kind of like scratches, some are very short(like less then 4mm) but one is pretty long(like more then 4cm). One of these "fractures" or scratch curves too in kind of an "S" pattern too... Is this normal?

I know plastic don't have the same density and durability as metal... But these worries me. I just got this rifle for 4 days so far, I haven't even used it yet(today was suppose to be my first game, but due to family matters I was not able to attend). I have just been modding the gun and putting my grip and sights on it. Any ideas? I will try to post some pictures ASAP...

Pictures posted below(they're not the best, but should give you an idea what I am saying) :

just wanted to say welcome to the game, im fairly new myself, im actually running a fairly similar setup, Velocity Arms V733-F (m4 CQB) is my gun, i love the colt 1911 a few of my team mates use them, i just picked one up myself breaking it in next Sunday, yes some games use sidearms like stated before, when I play we usually play with gun hits, so basically if my M4 gets hit by a BB I switch out to my side arm. as far as air soft in your back yard... not such a good idea, what i do when i borrow a bolt action, or use a scope/change hop up for conditions, I ask who ever is running the field if there is an area where i can shoot just to site in, their usually is if not you can always take some time to do it just before the game starts once your in position.
I have also setup boxes to shoot at (lots and lots of card board in cased) just to make sure nothing happens

Cool

Hi bigman,

what up heheh nice nice... yea I like guns that look special if you know what I mean. Thats why I picked the CQB cuz the barrel is smaller.

I have an EO tech sight, so should be pretty easy to zero the sights(I think?). I guess I can do that at the actual game, but like to get ready before hand that's all.

As for my question in my last post, does your gun have these "scratches" or "fractures" Bigman? Check to pictures let me know... I don't know if this is a manufacture defect? Or is it just how the plastic is?

Ah nice... I been asking about it for a while and most local dealers advised they no longer carry it. I love the special colored grips, and the all metal external and internal build... *drool*

Pusangani, did you take a quick look at the pictures I uploaded? What do you think? I just wrote an email to the store owner where I got the rifle. I'll let you guys know what's up tomorrow.

I wouldn't worry about those, they don't look major at all, did it come that way?

Hey man,

Yea it did... I only got this rifle like 4 days ago.

Like I said, when I run my nails over it, I don't feel a crack there. Its smooth. Maybe just the plastic eh?

I took a few picture of my baby... heheh. Thought share with you all.

I have a 1911 and I love it, but if you're planing on using your pistol frequently as a primary or using it for CAPS style target shooting then go with the hicapa. The hicapa is basically a doublestack version of the 1911. I went with the 1911 specifically because I have small hands and find guns with double stack mags don't fit my hands well. If you're interesting in tricking out your pistol then you should definitely go with the hicapa, the bulk of pistol upgrades out there are all for the hicapa. And get a TM hicapa if you do get one, since all the upgrades are for TM. Yeah, other pistols are TM compatible, but that's not quite the same.

The M9 is a good solid sidearm. If all you want is a good sidearm and backup weapon then the M9 is a great choice. They're fairly common as well, so you'll be able to get one for a decent price.

Glocks in airsoft are like Glocks in real steel, functional, reliable weapons. But in my mind Glocks just don't have any soul. If you're one of those people that like glocks then go for it, if not go with the 1911, Hicapa or M9.

Another thing that concerns alot of people when it comes to pistols is full metal or not. ABS is more efficient, and all the higher quality manufacturers tend to only produce in ABS. But for those that only want a pistol as a sidearm, well full metal just looks and feels so much nicer, generally better kick as well. The downsides to full metal are they use more gas to move the heavier slide (this is particularly a concern in singlestack guns like the 1911) and generally cause more wear on the parts.

Upgrading the higher quality abs guns to full metal is possible but very expensive. It usually easily doubles the cost of the weapon if not more. Illusion is the guy to talk to about pistol upgrades. There's a couple of guys, Illusion included who sometimes build and sell upgraded pistols, frequently in full metal. But you're looking at a price tag of $700-$1300.

The brand names you generally want to keep an eye out for are TM or WA for the higher quality abs pistols, particularly TM. And KJW for reasonably priced, reasonable quality full metal guns. Stay away from WE's, they have a bad tendency to rip themselves to pieces quite quickly. Don't bother with the cansoft hybrids (clear or smoked abs receivers), wait till your AV goes through and get a full black pistol out of the classifieds or ASC retailers.
