Well god dammit, the ASRPD and ASR itself is losing one of its best.
Yeah, I know, I didn't exactly have many dealings with you Chaser, but when it came to Xplosive and Spiggy nudging me into classics, they kind of pointed me in your direction. Even if I myself have waned off airsoft in an extreme sense, I still use my limited breaks to try and organize events with airsofters at my school, and I won't be quitting for at least a while. However, I can't compare that to your situation. You certainly have a damn good reason and if I had the money (college application fees are killing my wallet), I would certainly be interested in your final offer.
Damn straight you should do something with passion. I looked into many different options over the past few years and this past year or relative inactivity (in which I added a Tanaka M24 to my gunrack, a beautiful piece of work), but I was always an AEG nut. Those of you that remember the epic CA vs. TM duels that took place in the AEG discussion should be delighted, no, let me rephrase, absolutely horrified to know my M933's shot count.
Not a single break. Nothing at all. The only thing that is happening is a slowing motor, and even then, I still pull off 11 RPS with an 8.4v 1700mAh.
Point being, take Chaser's advice. If you're looking to make a new purchase, don't be an impatient little nut and buy eleventy bajillion spring pistols, invest in something big and make yourself happy. I would even come back and write reviews like I used to again if I had the chance, but sad to say, I don't exactly agree with the way reviews have been handled since the switch to the new interface. No bother, I still have all of my old ones saved to my computer, and have even used some of them as writing examples for letters of rec. And in that time I've been absolutely balls out keeping all my airsoft guns in good order, while keeping my music on a rolling spree.
Atilla, glad to see you're still bashin' heads.
Good luck with the rest of your jobs and life, Chaser, you will certainly be missed.
P.S. I'll tell Xplosive to drop you a line, ^^.
EDIT: And those of you that remember the redonkulus (new word, take heart) amount of hair I had from my old review pics...there's about 10% of that on my head as of currently. It's ok, I'm no longer weird. Or something.
