Re: Battle for Little Creek

My August weekends fill up in a hurry, so I'd need to know well in advance. There's still a lot of uncertainty in my schedule, too. I can eat limited solid food as of today, so I am bulking back up, but that's going to be a war in and of itself. Restoration of my previous weight will take a surplus ...

Re: CPS 2500 Screw Size

Small industrial screws can be difficult to find and the prices don't tend to be great if you do find them. There is an easy way of acquiring more screws, just head to a thrift store (or garage sale) and look for plastic toys (they don't even need to be blasters). Find something with a matching scre...

Re: Durability vs. Reliabilty

Classic SS are not necessarily fragile. The SS 200 will likely crack if you drop one while it's full, but the smaller ones and the 300 are surprisingly durable. The 300 lever mech can break, but you can put a screw through it for an easy repair. They just have so few moving parts that it really take...

Re: Battle for Little Creek

I had a medical emergency from Sunday to today and am recovering food/sleep now. Won't be able to go, I'm supposed to rest and keep a strict antibiotic schedule. I definitely want to visit again, but this weekend isn't the right time. Edit: At New Year's, I left my woodland bottoms and green+orange ...

Re: Battle for Little Creek

My car runs...but I dunno if I want to do another long drive after just having done the 16 and 14 to Ohio last weekend. Ask me when it's cooler out and I'm not melting, I can't think straight right now due to melting.

Re: Maintenance is essential now more than ever!

I used to do some pretty heavy mods, but that was when things like 2100s were readily available for $6.99 at Sports Authority. Nowadays, I usually leave rare soakers stock or near stock, only modding common models (1000, 1200, 150, etc) that I know can easily have parts replaced. Instead of doing po...

Re: HOG

Something special is happening on one of those weekends and I'm not sure which until it gets closer. I'm not even sure if the Saturdays are open, either.

Re: Did some range testing today, CPS & Homemades

Interesting results with the 1200s. Every MK2 and MK4 I've seen shoots about 4-8ft less than MK1s and MK3s. Are you sure that you've properly identified them? MK1/3 are traditionally thought of as having nozzle covers that are "not glued", but in fact the sides can be glued...it's just a w...

Re: Have manufacturers given up?

Two words: Legal issues. Manufacturers like Hasbro and Alex Brands are technically wholesalers. Most big retailers require them to sign contracts that forbid direct sales to consumers. You can't have a deal with say, Walmart or Target, and still offer the same products direct. Also, keep in mind tha...

Re: HOG

August for me is generally clear, but I can't do the first weekend in August. I like June (it's far less hot), but do what the most people are able to attend. Make sure to take notes from that past Soakemore when it was 96 and people gave out very quickly. The mission objectives should be hardcore, ...

Re: MOAB 2016 (Official Thread)

So, I caught one hell of a flu and was down for two weeks. Feeling much better now, with a voice again and all. I want to thank Marauder for hosting us and Tiff for making breakfast and juice. I loved the battlefield, although we didn't go as far down as I would have liked. There was a lot of intere...

Re: MOAB 2016 (Official Thread)

You can feel young again without needing to drink cat piss :) Drink good beer. It's not necessarily expensive and it tastes great. My suggestion to Ben was to see what Clayton's breweries have to offer, try something new and local. IMO, beer would be a better choice than moonshine. Easy way to get a...

Re: MOAB 2016 (Official Thread)

Thurs just makes more sense all-around, we could definitely do stuff with Scott. David would be coming with us, I bet he has quite a few working soakers as well. I'm interested in getting some DSLR footage in the labyrinth or wherever else we decide to play at. Honestly, I don't really care about th...

I have pretty much stopped caring at this point. I'll be interested in seeing what Buzz Bee puts out, but that's it.

Re: MOAB 2016 (Official Thread)

We may want to take Scott up on that offer...Clayton is around 10 hours from here, and that's if you get lucky/do it right. David also wants to come. Scott left his Space Shuttle here, so I can test that to see if it works. I think I have a working 1200, 1000, 3/4 working 2000, working 150s, and the...

Re: MOAB 2016 (Official Thread)

@Seal: I need to get more info on the Thursday war, but my gut feeling it it's probably not a full day, not even half day, and therefore could just be skipped. Leaving from here on Friday morning makes more sense. @Marauder: Is there anywhere in the playing area where freshwater mussels can be found...
