Re: MOAB 2019

A couple questions and concerns though: -I'm assuming the battle takes place on Saturday? If I come I might want to do some other things as well, such as visiting my cousin in Raleigh and going clubbing or something. Yes, the battle takes place on Saturday. -How many hours is the battle to last? I'...

Re: MOAB 2019

*official war update* It looks like we should have about 10 people for this war. There are several others who may come, including Will, Noah, SSS track and field team, one of my friends from Red Scorpion, and John. But I am going to plan as if this is currently who we have. Historically MOAB has bee...

Re: MOAB 2019

So it sounds like this thing is happening! Sweet, it has been too long. I've texted Rob and David to see if they are coming and need a ride. Anyone else need a ride? I can fit 3 plus myself, so if it just Rob and David I'm going to ask some local friends. Have you heard anything back from them? I h...

Re: Plastic Welding

Update: I've recently been experimenting with solvent welding as well. Particularly with ABS glue - mix Acetone and junk plastic parts, obviously in a well ventilated environment. Store in a glass jar with a tight lid. Add more plastic to increase its viscosity, and vice versa. It's an old and cost...

Re: Gun Storage

I hang mine on pegboards in the garage mostly. If you have a gun you really really like then you could keep it in your closet or under your bed just to make sure. I have found that this keeps them a little more fresh at least in appearance if nothing else. What guns do you have these days?

Re: MOAB 2019

That probably would actually be the best date for me 'cause I get Monday off, but I still don't know if I can or not. I'll keep you updated. Doing this in the same fashion as the "HOG Lite" idea I talked about in the other thread would be cool. Got any cool battlefields around that nobody else has ...

Part of me likes the idea, but mostly I think it might incentivize cheating.

Re: MOAB 2019

Congratulations on getting your PHD btw. It's probably too early, but do you have any idea of where you are going to be applying for jobs? Thanks. I won't be applying to any jobs until after I graduate. I'll be taking at least 3 months off then and will have plenty of time to apply to jobs then. I'...

Re: MOAB 2019

What kind of war do you have in mind? i.e. what locations and game types? Something totally insane and different would be awesome. We should get like 20 people too. I'm thinking of having the opportunity to camp in the woods and fight through the night for people who want that. How long will you be...

Re: MOAB 2019

I know you have plans in April, and it's also Humans vs. Zombies season in Ohio, though I'm not sure which events I'm going to yet. Most likely I'll be playing on April 12 and 19. That sounds like so much fun. I can never seem to find anything like that around here. When I get back from Kuwait I wa...

MOAB 2019

Hi everyone, as you know I want to plan one final massive battle, worthy of the MOAB name, before I leave for Kuwait June 1st. Let's do this right. I am trying to reach out to everyone and plan something special. The best dates for me are either next weekend or probably May, but I will talk to Tiffa...

Re: Plastic Welding

I have plenty of broken guns. We could get together and try welding some of the broken parts back together. That would be pretty cool.

Re: CPS 215, an XP 215 overhaul

Wow, this is certainly very innovative. Never would have thought to try something like this. Do you think you could get a good picture of what the shot looks like now? Before the first Frozen Fury I did some modifications on our pistols (XP 40 specifically comes to mind). Nothing to this level but t...

Re: Is Water Warriors Dead?

Agreed that waiting on pictures and videos sucks. I still haven't seen the ones from your last event. I always tried to post up my stuff as soon as I could, but my issue is that I'm really bad at taking pictures. Like, I have so many great memories but now it's like they never happened 'cause I eit...

Re: Is Water Warriors Dead?

Walmart has a watergun that looks just like water warriors design. I thought I read somewhere on isoaker that buzz bee designed it for Walmart. I could not find it on their website, but they just put it on the shelves here. I may buy one to test out. The toy industry is brutal. I hear that on Shark ...

Re: Battlefield Injuries

The one that comes to mind first is from Vermin War 2 when one of our guys buttstroke an opponent with his 1200. It broke a tooth off and my friend stood on his chest and shot him in the face point blank with his 1200. Definitely don't want that to happen, but I think we are all a lot more mature th...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

I think my favorite quote was (and I may be paraphrasing)

Stephen: "It feels great out here."

Scott: (we are walking through a swamp at the time) "Yeah, my feet were cold. Now I don't even feel them!"


I will be posting a more detailed war report later.
