To answer the pyro question I have several Nepalese bearers engaged to follow me around and pass the required pyrotechnic for the task at hand when required. It's costing me 12 Baat each per day and I think it's £8.00 well spent!

A lovely Maruzen P38 arrived today..... Just gotta get it home and check the mag works. If it does I'm sorted for the last stand or kneckschussdienst :shock: (selbstmord of course - I'm not Jochen Peiper you know! :whistle: )

Having shot everything, driven most things, clambered into everything, visited everywhere spoken to God and read the t shirt seen the book and written the movie - I'm VERY excited at the prospect of my first CiA experience.......

Yes, the Guy/Kermit spit-roast is something to behold and is our official initiation process, so you're in for a double treat!

Spitroast is off the menu that weekend - it was ruled as "a cruel and unusual punishment" under the ECHR.

However, we have thought of something far more painful as an initiation process - watching anything that Screen WM had a hand in :wink: :twisted:

Ooooh, harsh. That means the next series of Survivors and Hustle are off the cards, both filming with us at the moment.

I always get a blue screen of death whenever running that little program, so for anyone else with that problem, here's my spreadsheet which lists the max fps for common "weight" bbs to equate to the usual limits of 330fps, 350fps or 500fps for bolt actions.

Muzzle Velocity Limits.pdf
(10.05 KiB) Downloaded 39 times


This is all calculated using Energy = (half Mass) x (Velocity squared).

There's no table for the 400fps semi-auto only limit, because that's a myth propagated by people with semi-auto only guns.

The last time I fiddled around with my No.4 to ostensibly "upgrade" it, I managed to b*gger up the hop and had to send it back to Warren to sort it out so I'm a bit reluctant to muck about with it again. I'll have to make do with a 1911 for close encounters, in my innaccessible pistol holster.

Anne will be using an M1 Garand, but at least it's a rifle.
