Barrel Quietness?

16 July 2014 - 09:40 PM

So I've noticed, looking at peoples' tests, that Disruptive's porting is one of the quietest portings out there. I'm pretty sure it's because of the stepped porting they have, but why is that? Shaft 4 barrels are pretty much the same, only they have twice the amount of holes for porting, and they lack the stepped porting and aren't nearly as quiet. Can anyone give me a reason as to why the stepped porting plays such a huge role in the quietness?

Marker(s) Tuning

24 March 2014 - 09:59 PM

So first off I'd like to say that I finally got myself my OWN marker, instead of using my brother's guns.
I got myself an axe, and have a bunch of spare cash for upgrades on it. Now before you say to use the gun before messing with it, I know what I'm looking for, and I've used my brothers axe for nearly 2 years now. I just wasn't allowed to mess with it.
A couple questions:
Is it absolutely necessary to put a shit ton of cases through it before I can tune it?
Mikes axe tuning is recommended correct?
I already put on a Disruptive one piece on it, but am looking to have it shoot smoother and quieter.
Is there a difference between the team boss bolts and the standard black boss bolts?
Is the lurker bolt really that finicky to make it annoying to install?
Lurker poppet; yes? No?

Also, my friend is on vacation for spring break, and lent me his etek for the 1-2 weeks. He said I can use it as long as I tune it to be as smooth as it can be. How would I go about this?

No time to look good

27 February 2014 - 09:35 PM

Senior year. Stereotypically, I shouldn't give two shits about what I'm doing. I'm only 16, and I've been accepted to 4 colleges, with 3 more awaiting acceptance. My classes should be easy, and I should have the time to do normal people stuff like have a job and do out of school activities like the rest of my class. What am I doing now? Taking 2 AP classes and a Biotech class, along with 3 other classes, and reffing/volunteering/robotics on the weekends. I get home daily at 8-9, do my ridiculous amounts of homework until 1-2am. I sleep, I wake up, repeat.


That's not what's really bothering me though. Before, I used to be in top shape. I never stepped foot in a gym in my life. All this was from doing  soccer, swimming and diving competitively. Now I just don't have the time do any of that, let alone simply work out at home. I'm gaining a slight bit of belly, and am now like 20-30lbs overweight. Why? Because after being stressed and sleep deprived, eating out for 20 minutes with friends seems like the most exciting part of every week. I skip out on lunch so at least I'm not eating 4 full meals a day, and so I eat a moderately small breakfast at 8:00pm, a fast food "lunch" at 3:30pm with friends, and some dinner at 6:00pm. The rest of the time, I'm busy doing so much things.


I hate being shirtless now, but there's really not much I can do to help it. My metabolism isn't insanely fast like some people I know, and I don't have time to work out at the gym for a few hours. No one I know goes to a gym; they do their own activities that double as keeping them in shape. But I don't have time for those activities. I cant even do a quick amount of sets before I go to sleep because I need as much sleep as I can get, so I don't fall asleep and risk missing out on material that I'd rather not spend more time studying for the night after.




"You shouldn't have taken that!"

Post a pic of you that shouldn't have been taken. Maybe you shat on the field, or tripped while bunker someone. Maybe you got bunkered and happened to look a bit too fabulous.


Here's one of me taken at 7 in the morning taken by a teammate, after a night of Monster and League of Legends, and Trouble in Terrace Town.

Eating a Great Value granola bar, and Gatorade, right after a half awake game of speedball, confused, tired, and now surprised, this was not a good picture of me.

Air tank help

11 December 2013 - 11:09 PM

So as some may have recently heard, I stripped the threads on my oldish empire steelie tank. I ordered a DP regulator to replace it, and it came in. However, I noticed that there is still pressure, 2000lbs or so, still inside the tank, and it hasn't bled out or anything over the past month. How would I bleed the air out of the tank, given that I can't do so with an asa? Do I send it in the shop?
