Anyway, I would list my latest soaker but since so many are coming there is no point until they all arrive, business and buying is booming for me at present.
That is Exactly what happens with My XP 55 I bought a new O-ring but it still leaks and I can barely shoot. What do you think I should do with it ?

BTW, my new latest soaker might depend on what the general public (y'all) have to say about it:
Max-D Secret Strike: $10 (each); Yes or No?
I could potentially buy two of them, if I don't let them sit much longer.
Tell me what you think.

Got 'em. Two Max-D Secret Strikes. One with a red tank, one with blue. Can't wait to tear them open and try them out.

Technecially, the latest I've bought is a 2006 MI Flash Flood/Auquapack (which I am going to have to write a review on...) but I'm waiting on a 1500 I bought on EBay to arrive. Hopefully today...

Today, I found two XP215 recolours that I couldn't resist. For small, pocket-sized soakers, I still really prefer the XP215s. These ones are the type with the more opaque reservoirs, so not quite as good as the original, IMO. They were on sale, though. :goofy:

Yesterday I recieved a Defender as a certain gift from a certain someone. On the armory shelves it would be an awkward spot of bright color in a sea of burlap and PVC, so I will probably leave it NIB as a collectors' item. :laugh:

Hmmmm..... sounds fishy...... :suspicious: jk :crazy:

Anyway, I too have a red/yellow XP 215. It's certainly not the most well-made gun I've ever used (one of the worst...) and the trigger sticks so when you press it, the whole resevoir gets released. I prefer my Storm 600 that a friend gave to me as a captain's pistol. I'm trying to give it a paint job but it's a bugger to open up.....

Nah, I don't believe it. He's pulling our leg. He probably tossed it out the window the moment he got it... Just kidding. :goofy:
I didn't think I'd find you with a 2006 Super Soaker! Now we know the DARKER SIDE of Duxburian... :ghostface:
Sorry, I just couldn't help it. :D


Anyway, my Target just got a shipment of the 2006 Super Soakers. I'm still debating in my mind whether or not to get a 2006 FF. Can anyone tell me how big the riot blast actually is? It it actually water, or just mist? And does it really get you wet? Also, how big is the blast actually? I might get it as a "fun" weapon. I wouldn't mind drenching some person in a water fight, that is, if it actually "drenches".

It does soak you and is quite fun from past experiences, I broke my previous one from experimenting with it a bit, which went wrong. I'm actually thinking about ordering a 2006 one with the backpack, which means I will last longer with it.

Yeah, I was thinking about getting the 2006 one with the backpack as well. If it does soak you and it's fun to use, that's all I need. Should be useful fighting against smaller guns.. and more of a challenge against more heavily-armed opponents. Of course, a good CPS gun would be better, but maybe that's the point. :goofy:

Thanks for the advice! I'll see how soon I can get to Target... and haven't you gotten your Blazer and Piranha yet? ???

The Blazer and Piranha haven't arrived yet, although I was expecting that, USPS shipping to the UK has slowed down loads in the past months, and that's on Airmail shipping. Something to do with the Economy, which is still probably recovering slowly after what has been going on.

Once they arrive I'll know that the service is good and I'll probably buy the orange Flash Flood with the Aquapack from an online store probably, I'm considering Target.

I'll see what I can do about reviews and pictures, but now is the big time for me to be doing big exam revision, so I'll be quite inactive soon.

Recently I received a CPS 1700 and an XP 150 mk.1, both in used condition. I'm pretty happy with both of them. I also tested out a load of Storm guns I bought last year, but hadn't opened.

Last week, I added the Water Warriors Splash Blaster Shotgun and a pair of Crickets.

My latest soakers are my twin Max-D 2000s that I bought in a double pack at a Sports Authority store. I still have not pickedup my Defender from my freind, I guess I will get it next time we have a battle and I might be getting a watergun off of ebay.

The WW Scorpion is my latest retail purchased soaker while an XP55 is my most recent soaker acquisition (Thanks, WildBoys!).

The XP55 I have looks like it's seen its share of battles, but still appears to be properly functional and I look forward to doing some testing on it and pushing up a review.
