Can't you fit a restrictor to the K98?

by 'sniper' I assume we are talking the high fps ones. I dunno. As I have said from the start, in my opinion all high fps weapons are useless just in general. Good for drawing blood in the occasional accident, or doing some Clarkson-esque bragging, but useful in any structured game? Nah.

SO, specifics usefulness for this game:
With a high powered rifle you are just less versatile. If I order your 'section' to escort supplies, and you are ambushed down a wooded track within 25 meters - if an ambush occurs it is going to be within this range - then your only option is surrender or flight.

Now I don't mind surrender or flight, both amuse me, and the games rules have the option to use high powered rifles, you just have to be very careful with where you are firing, and would likely have to rely on the bayonet more often.

I will have spare low fps guns with me to lend out. But break them at your peril! ;)

Also did anything happen with regards to getting any of Josh's guns?

Are there any reasonably accesible local eateries (pub? chippie?) nearby. I was feeling extremely lazy about heating up some slop to eat during the 'tea break' 6-9 on Saturday evening, but there might not be time to go offsite so I shall bring the usual tins and packets too.

Cheers

I dunno, Pizza has been gotten before, and a local pub has been gone down to before as well. (people in/driving cars knew more than I)

Wasn't the pizza delivered at the Mace? Or did I just imagine/dream that?

Hmmm... 3 hours gap.. Yes time to get food elsewhere and save on packing cooking equipment.

Sounds like a plan to me!

I like the sound of pizza, a brief google search turned up a Dominos pizza in Mildenhall a few miles up the road.

The pub gets my vote. We walked it last time I was at Tuddenham.

Pub? Walking distance? Easy decision.

Walking distance doesn't really matter...

We'll be playing again at 9pm, so no drinking!
