12 October 2007 - 09:29 AMI would advise not going to the cleaners. It can be expensive. Find and semstrist some little old lady who does this out of her home or shop. Not a tailor but a semstrist. If you can find bdu's that are too big she can take the in. Or she can sew some for you for a reasonable price. This time of year everyone has camo fabric (see wal-mart). I bought woodland cammo< poly cotton I think, for 2.99 a yard to make pouches and covers for my vest and tanks. The little old lady who does this as a side line will be much more reasonable in price than a tailor who works at a cleaners.
Just my 2 cents.
08 September 2007 - 08:55 PMWell, in a very real way, consistency IS accuracy, in paintball. If your marker consistently places a paintball in the same spot as the last...is that not accuracy, defined?...
...First shot accuracy might see you getting the offset 'stovepipe' attachment and a single-rise Tac-cap, as far as your hopper goes (or the low profile hopper on the offset stovepipe). From here, I'd get a raised sight rail (or an A-3 carry handle with a rail adapter for the top) to mount your sight on. For one - it is a pain in the arse trying to adjust your dot sight when it is on a 45 degree angle and do so accurately. Having your sight on the same direction line as the spine of your receiver group and barrel greatly contributes to a better ergonomic shooting solution.
Adding a sight is a must no matter what it is. Remember to practice and to adjust you sight so you can be both precise (ability to reproduce same shot) and accuracy (ability to hit the target). I have see people put on sights and never adjust the before. Then they wonder why their shots are a yard off where the dot or cross hair points to. The more you practice with the same paint and same gun and same sight them more accurate you can become and the more precise your shots will be. If you can predict your grouping you can adjust if to be accurate at a variety of distances.
31 August 2007 - 08:33 PMI have spent the last two weeks looking for netting suitable for making my ghilli......if I didn't need it...I know I'd be seeing some everywhere...but now that I do....I cannot seem to find anything for less than 30 dollars.... I've gone to Walmart, KMart, Target, Dollar Stores, Variety Stores, Sporting Goods stores, the local community center to see if they have some old volleyball nets or the like...
I've even looked for badminton sets. I have an employee that likes to go shopping at the dump and he hasn't found anything......I've driven around looking for abandoned ball fields, tennis courts, etc etc.... the neighbors hammock even looked tempting...... Checked the autoparts store looking for cargo bed netting.... I'm going to pull my hair out!
If you don't have you have you heart set on netting you could alway use burlap. It is cheap and at least where I live I can get it with a camo print just add your foliage. You can also sew it easy. The only draw back is that it will adsorb water.
