Title: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Baby Buster on December 01, 2010, 01:28:10 am
Just thought I'd make this thread for the sake of avoiding further derailment of the photo thread.

First off, who's up for the idea? I'd like to try arrange this on a day that DV isn't scheduled on so that everyone can come up and have a go and the fact that it would be good to see the marshals play too (as I for once haven't seen ollie play - ever)

As said before, overnight stay might be an idea too, what with travelling times and the need to fill ones body with suitable alcohol (unless you are iGeza, and are a non beer swilling heathen). Stonemanator has also mentioned that if we let the site owner know where we are travelling from he might let us stay overnight in the mall itself, providing we help the guys set up the playing area.

What's everyones thoughts on this then?

I'd also be up for this, depending on when it is. Only a 2 hour train journey for me  :D

I was thinking late January/early febuary, but that's just me wanting to go as soon as possible. We would however be waiting on dates from the mall, and a day with when we are all available.

asap is always good but like myself and many others in the same boat as me xmas is going to drain my cash for at least end of febuary pay day so may advise march or if there is enough of us then we could do a private day at the mall for march that way gives enough time for people to prep for this

I'd prefer around March or later in the year TBH, give me the chance to recover from Christmas and get some suitable kit sourced.

I wouldn't worry about it mate, you can rent from there if needs be.

I'll be up for it as well. The noise of Reppyboyo's G39c, and mine, echoing along the lower corridors in the the dark is just too tempting to resist.

If we can arrange it for early march we could make it a birthday event for my brother as his bday is the 4th march  :D and no im not looking for an excuse to shoot him  :P

Also regarding their fps limits they wont let you use anything over 340fps as my aug was doing 341 there last time and I got told I couldnt use it  :(
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: the stonemanator on December 02, 2010, 02:31:13 pm
im in if it in march!!!  how are we going to go about booking it? doing a big group booking or all book in our selfs
on game day agreed or a private day?
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Baby Buster on December 02, 2010, 02:40:52 pm
That would be a nice touch, as my birthday is in march too. But some people are forgetting that we can only go to the mall when:

A) they put the dates up
B) when we can actually maximise attendance so most the DV regs that want to go can actually go there too.

Obviously with Christmas and new year looming an early January game (for example) would be fruitless and have an attendance of 2. So the point of this thread is to ascertain who would like to go at first and have a chat about the mall. Then as we come into the new year we can start discussing dates and if people would be up for staying in reading overnight ready for some softing the next day.

Count me in.

I don't know if this will work here but it works a treat on the Cardiff Canoe club forum.

If you are / might be attending add your name to the list below in a quote

1. Tom (Baby Buster)
2. Greg & Steve

Post by: Monkfish on December 02, 2010, 04:43:26 pm
Attendance/Interest lists work well on the other forums I'm on. The only real issue I've seen several times is a lot of names down of people that are interested, then it all goes quiet when firm confirmations and payment is requested. Worth a punt though.

There are a couple of days in Jan I'm not available, but other than that I'm good for any dates.

How many people will we need to fill it
For a private day? It's Going to be difficult to get say 60 people to commit 100% to this as the last time we organised a private day it was canceled because a fair few dropped out a few day before.

I would love to go so I'm committing to this but we needs to determine what method of booking we are going to use

I wouldn't be fussed on a private day, because Dibs is correct. Paying x amount to play and ending up with a no show is embarrassing. I was planning on us just going there and having a laugh, like a no frills day out where we can just play and not worry about an attendance figure on a private day. And we are too far off a roll call for any sort of game day too

Well if we know a date and book for a regular day we can all book it and with any luck we should get everyone in before it fills up

My point exactly.

Now, who's gonna be up for an overnight stay?
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Monkfish on December 02, 2010, 06:42:38 pm
I don't mind an overnight stay. I have a friend of mine who's just outside Andover that plays Airsoft too, he'd probably be up for this. Could probably rustle up a few extras too.

If that's the case why don't we make this a regular thing, like every 3 months? No private days or anything, just who ever can turn up. Even go play around ollies area (the tunnels isn't it?). Could turn out to be a good thing if there is enough support for the idea

Well there's usually a break around January - February time where the MOD lock us out of the site. That would be an ideal time to take a road trip.  Means the marshals are in less trouble with their WAGs for not going airsofting 3 weekends on the bounce.

I'll come to a private day, transport would be easier for me then.
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Greg on December 06, 2010, 05:37:10 pm
Also if its a private day it may attract more people because some people dislike the rule that there is no limit on the amount of ammo carried. Dates would also be more flexible as we can book for a non DV day and to a date that everyone can attend.

And also as John stated transport would be easier and a convoy can be formed like last time ?

Either way im still up for this

Would you like me to search for a B&B or see if they could reccommend one for us? I don't care what it looks like as long as I can sleep.

Well to send you a hot gun would be illegal, as that's something like a section 5 firearm (correct me if I'm wrong) you should get in contact with whoever you bought it from and tell them.

If im right you bought that from action hobbies. They do a few Thompsons on there. You should of given it to be on Sunday morning and I would of chrono'd it for you fella.

Give them a call and find out because according to their site they do random chronographs on the gun, and I wouldn't be too happy if I was given a hot gun again.

Well at the end of the day you should cover your arse. They don't tell you most the time because they would rather you pay for a spring to downgrade the gun as opposed to them doing the right thing and making it legal. I'm sure ollie would know a hell of a lot more than I would. If it's doing that FPS Out of the box you'll end up with a fully automatic air rifle as opposed to an airsoft gun.
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: the stonemanator on December 14, 2010, 03:44:30 am
my knowlage on air rifles is that they are legal at max 12 ftlb which is roughly 600 fps but no idea of minimum before it is classed as airsoft
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: C-X on December 14, 2010, 09:00:36 am
Anything that fires fully automatic over 1.35 joules (378fps with a .2g BB) is classed as a section 5 firearm and is wholly illegal under current legislation.  Single shot only RIFs (i.e bolt actions) are legal up to 12ft/lbs as you say, however as soon as you shoot one AT someone even in the confines of a game scenario, you could be arrested for assault with a deadly weapon or even attempted murder.  The law makes no exceptions for "gaming".  If a UK retailer sold you a RIF that was doing over 450fps then they're seriously pushing their luck.

So to summarise;

Fully auto - Very illegal over 378fps
Semi auto - Legal up to 12 ft/lbs for TARGET SHOOTING ONLY.  Legal up to 378fps for airsoft gaming.

Post by: C-X on December 14, 2010, 01:03:28 pm
If and when we decide that the 23rd is the actual date that we'll go, most likely it will be everyone's individual responsibility to book themselves on and pay their own deposits directly to F&O. 
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Baby Buster on December 14, 2010, 01:35:13 pm
I don't mind if the 23rd isn't the real date. Some of us would probably go twice I assume. I know January would be a bad time for most of the DV regs, what with bills coming out after Christmas and what not. That doesn't affect me personally. If more people want to go to a date after January that's not a problem, only that there's no dates announced after january.

I suppose you could see January 23rd as one date for those who want to go as soon as possible. If there's only a small number of us going we might as well all book at the same time.

Ungh. 23rd isn't really going to suit me TBH. I get paid early for Christmas and then have to make that last 5 odd weeks before being paid again on the 28th. That's not likely to happen. :P

Sometime in February or later would suit me fine though. Perhaps a poll of available dates that allows multiple votes to find out when most are available? Failing that, just doing another trip later in the year.
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Baby Buster on December 15, 2010, 12:09:08 pm
We can do another date later in the year, but the idea is that we don't plan to go on a DV date so everyone can go and we aren't stealing DVs custom.

That's fair enough. What I'm suggesting is to list all of the available Mall dates Jan-Feb (maybe March too) that don't conflict with DV days and run a poll to see which are the most popular. If Jan 23rd still comes up as the most popular, I'll probably have to give it a miss.

Well it would be wrong to carry on advertising a game at the mall on the 23rd. Looks like only a small number of us are going anyway so that won't be a bad thing, but still, it would be wise to cease talking about it and concentrate on a game we can all go too

I know it's dragging this thread back up from the depths, but would anyone be interested in a private day or something? After being at the mall on Sunday I can't quite help but think it would benefit from slightly smaller numbers than on a normal day. Partially because it gets bogged down quickly in some places, and partially because I trust the DV regs not to hose me down when I am clearly surrendering to avoid a hosing on a flight of stairs

If it was all DV players on Sundays game poor old Starscream wouldn't of got blindfired in the face at close range like he did by some arse.

It would also be a day we can organise for ourselves, by ourselves. And would be more organised than Sundays game too

In all fairness we did decide to play it iron man style and see how far our pain threshold would take us Geza. Although our army of two style gameplay for that game was cool.

It was cool to see the marshals get involved, except the one who plonked me in the bollocks when I rushed him. I've never seen a guy reload an M92 so fast.

Nah it was the Asian marshal who told me "mesh goggles are shit". He was kinda right because the fragmented bb that passed through my mesh goggles had a million to one chance of getting through the gaps has kind of made my eye a bit sore. They nearly stopped a game for that. All marshals were on standby for the emergency weapons down order. Guy doesn't have a clue what he's on about though.

Your leg wound looks painful mind. I'm not envious.

If it garners enough interest at a time that will actually suit everyone I'll go ahead and book it. At the same time I'm gonna get all the information on private days and pass it on to any who are interested.

not when said gun was firing over 350 on green gas
I thought The Mall's limits were lower than that of DV (328fps or something)?

350fps with a 0.4g BB?!  That's f**king stupidly overpowered.  The legal limits and lethality are measured in muzzle energy, not muzzle velocity.  The 350fps that we use as a limit is 350fps as measured with a 0.2g BB, roughly equalling 1.2 joules, the absolute maximum being about 1.35 joules.

Now, a gun firing at 350fps with a projectile twice the weight, i.e 0.4g uses twice the energy to shift the projectile at the same speed.  If you were to chrono that same gun with a regular 0.2 BB, you would probably find it putting out between 450 and 500fps. If it was an AEG or full auto GBB, one word;  ILLEGAL!!

If someone tried to use that on me, especially in close quarters like that, I'd wrap it around their neck.

Do not want to get shot up as ridiculous as that.

Also the Mall's chrono is an EASY 20 fps extra on DV, may have something to do with lower resistance as the BB leaves  the muzzle and variance between different chrono manufacturers, so if we go as a DV group and your gun is 335fps be ready for it to fail.....

... As Darkels gun did. I agree with it being up on DVs chrono too. At DV my TM G36k pumps put at a reasonable and consistent 283fps. At the mall it was flinging around 293-295. I know it's still obviously legal, but there's something not quite right.

Do they still allow players to chrono with their own ammo?

Was like that the last time I went and there were some questionable velocities.

Most places do though to be fair, we are unusually strict. It's a lesson that we've learn't though, distrust everyone equally.

Not for me anyway, they used their .2's speed loader as they didnt have a mag for my gun so everything seemed above board in that way

If so then some new toys will need ordering :)

Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)
Post by: Greg on January 25, 2011, 08:31:24 pm
Anytime in March is good, also we will have to avoid DV days so that the whole crew can come along aswell

If so then the services we met at last time should make a good gather point. A convoy will be needed as the last time a few of us got lost because of the fact its so hidden away

Actually the satnavs that iGeza and Starscream used for Saturday night proved fantastic and got us there no problem. We met at Cheively services and travel went smooth as with no problems.

As March is sounding good at the moment. How about the 13th 23rd or the 30th to go up ?.

If we all plan ahead then that should give people plenty of time to make up their minds and arrange lifts and the likes ?
Title: Re: The Mall (in the new year)

Aren't the 23rd and 30th Wednesdays?

If I'm going to be able to make it I'll need to go before April as the mrs went and got up the stuff a few months ago and she's due then so I got no scope afterwards.

I got this from Lee at the mall a few hours ago.

Hi Thomas,
Very sorry for the rather late reply. Your mail ended up in limbo and I've only just picked it up. A private day at the Mall has a minimum player count per booking of 20 but can run up to 80. There are price breaks per numbers of players which break down as such;  
Hire Package - 20 players: £65
Walk on - 20 Players: £45
 
Hire Package - 30 players: £55
Walk on – 30 Players: £40
 
Hire Package - 40 players and up: £50
Walk on - 30 Players: £35
 
Hire package includes:
Full AEG rifle and mag
Full face mask
UNLIMITED AMMO
Free Tea/coffee
Free Parking
Hot lunch 
Alternatively, we also run a sister site to the Mall called Mecca, which is a multi story bingo hall that sits opposite the Mall on the other side of the road. This suits smaller private bookings of between 12 and 30 at a fixed price of £60 per player for the same hire package. Most private days run on a Saturday but some Sundays are available from time to time. We normally require a deposit of no less that 50% deposit paid at least 2 weeks before the event, with the balance being paid on the morning of arrival.
Let me know if any of this sounds interesting and we'll talk further.
 
Regards,
Lee.



Now thing is, I might not be able to go at all because my works can't afford to pay me for all the work I've done (ungrateful fruity bun-loaves), so I may end up being laid off and back on le dole for a while or unless I can find another job (again). At the moment I'm a maybe.
