A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, our entries have slowed down somewhat, mostly due to the fact that Juicy is on the other side of the planet and I’m busy playing tour guide for family that’s in town for the holidays. But fear not! We’ll be back in full swing next week and into 2013.
On behalf of Juicy, thanks to everyone for your views, comments, and overall support this year. Hearing someone say “I love the blog, guys” means a lot to us. When we started this blog we didn’t think we’d get this much recognition (we were happy with 50 views/week!), so it’s definitely been a pleasant surprise for us. Thanks, guys! See you in 2013.
(The beard is too epic for Nikon to handle, thus the blurry picture.)
The second ever Official Overhoppers Gentleman and Scholar Award goes to Yammo of Team Ravens for sporting the epicness that is the above moustache, long after the end of Movember and well into December – or, as he calls it, “Decem-beard.”
Well done, sir. Well done.
Above video is from Airsoft Taiwan (AST) – what was formerly known as RA-Tech. I foresee fancy parts in the future!
Above video is from KhanSeb, lots of great gun demo clips from that guy. No range testing of his guns, though.
P.S. I’ll be on vacation till the New Year – so Merry Christmas, Happy New Year to all of you in advance.
For one final hurray, Fireteam Bro shot stuff at the last Airsoft day at Tsawwassen Paintball on Sunday, December 9th, 2012. The following two video clips are what player “Antares” captured at the end of the day.
Fireteam Bro has become fond of running drills, fiddling with equipment, and general tomfoolery in the speedball field at Tsawwassen. Here is a clip from one of our final, live-fire exercises done at this field (please do excuse my language, I fumbled through a reload):
Here we have the final Airsoft game played at the Tsawwassen field (recorded a few moments earlier):
Note that Antares did capture other video clips, but not all have or will be uploaded to YouTube at this time. If there are more from this day, I’ll be editing to add them into this post below.
A pay raise at work and a shiny new gun going up for sale on the forums is a dangerous combination. The result of said combination is above – a Real Sword Type 56-1.
Read on after the break for my impressions after a full day of gaming my new toy.
Just did some live-fire practice (along with Jester and Antares) two weeks ago and I attempted to film it… and this is the junk video clip that resulted.
I am in no way proud of this video. It doesn’t help that my camera’s battery died mid-way through our session. Nor does the terrible image quality. Or does the horrible camera placement.
However, I will eventually get the Overhoppers YouTube channel up and running in a much more presentable manner, though it’ll take some time before we get there.
This has yet to be scientifically proven. By that, I may have been referring to barrel length… or it may have been in regards to phallic matters.
Anyway, here’s a picture showing you the contrast in length between a SVD and my AK-102 (or whatever you want to call it) – my AK’s overall length with stock folded is actually slightly shorter than the barrel length found on the SVD.
This picture may also lead to a future filled with underslung AK carbines under a SVD barrels.
The owner of the Real Sword SVD pictured is “8th_Army” (the guy holding the guns in this picture).
