General Forum Rules and Guidelines
Ok, since the last set of rules couldn't be enforced on a large scale, they have been simplified down to a more basic ruleset that everyone can understand. These are intentionally vague, if you have any questions about these, feel free to contact any of the moderators and ask.

1. Treat People with Respect.

2. No "Yes Man" posting is allowed.

3. Search before posting.

4. No double posting topics.

5. Please at least attempt to use correct spelling in your posts. There is a spell checker supplied at the the bottom of a "new post" screen that is directly next to "Preview Post button". A picture of those can be located below.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y29...SpellCheck.jpg

6. We have a wonderful FAQ written by dumborat that is very factual and informative, I would highly suggest that everyone that is new to airsoft read it.

7. From now on, only airsofters in Ohio (or a bordering state) that have shown up to AO games are permitted to vote on AO field rules. Forum rules can be voted on by any longstanding member of the community, or any person that has made major contributions to the forum in the past.

8. No more "is this gun good" threads - If you have to ask, it probably sucks. There are at least 3-4 dozen of these threads scattered around the boards, look for them.

9. No opinion posts - Asking for people's opinions. Opinions are like feet, everyone has at least one, and most stink.

10. Stay on-topic and BE PATIENT - We aren't on the boards 24 hours a day, and we won't necessarily be able to anwer your question immediately upon you asking it. Bottom line is: if you don't have the time and patience to await an answer, don't post the question.

11. Signature Lines - Due to the excessive amount of banners/userbars/quotes in signature lines we have now reinstituted an old policy, along with a new twist. You may have:
A. A large banner with dimensions no greater than 470x70 pixels.
-or-
B. A total of no more than 4 (four) userbars, regardless of the size. However, these userbars cannot exceed 470x70 pixels.
-or-
C. No more than 2 (two) quotes in your signature.
-or-
D. No more than 1 (one) quote, and 2 (two) userbars.

12. Political Discussion - This is now forbidden. Every time a political thread is posted, it turns into a giant flame war, and I quite frankly am tired of looking at it. This world is filled with ignorance, we don't need to bring it here.
umm that looks like 12 rules to me you really have a bad attitude on this forum, oh and again no matter what gun comes out of the bowls of the cyma/ well corporation is most definitely and lpeg. This has turned into more of an arguement than a discussion about a gun. Any moderators around to help me out?

Here’s my two cents:

Wells R series are great LPEG or "affordable AEGs"... for there price... but there is no way in hell you can try to compare it, even upgrading it serves no purpose but show ignorance/arrogance. It is like putting on spinners and fins on a Volkswagen and getting a flaming paint job and try to drag with a Mustang ( <3 Mustangs ) ... it wont happen. I hate people who are like that on the highway... cut off mufflers, paintjob on a car that has seen dozens of wrecks blah blah blah... sorry back on point.

Now don’t get me wrong, Wells is ok in small skirmishes and games where you might stand a chance but your still at a slight disadvantage. In large events and/or MILSIM you will be disappointed.

I used to think like you. Buy a cheap gun and upgrade it. I was a noob, actually I should say I still am a noob for I still have mine but getting a TM soon, but after I started thinking, "huh maybe I should thinking smart about this and educate myself on this new hobby before I get into it." I spent weeks studying, reading, etc on airsoft (sad I know). All I have to say, by the way you post and the way you defend yourself your more a noob than I am. Grammar wise… come on man there is a spell checker, use correct punctuation, capitalize Is and first words. You want to make yourself look like you actually care and not look lazy. Do/Will you do this on resumes? Try to make yourself look good, after all many people will be reading your posts and from that judge your character.

If you want to keep trucking with that R6... go ahead no one is stopping you but don’t be crying (metaphorically) because we told you so.

PS: I am not offending anybody I hope. Comment all you like. Trying to act cool and nice here after my latest fiascos hehehe… -_-

EDIT - I know that in real life, real steel weapons you could never make a HK MP5 into a sniper, but in airsoft isnt the bounds different? I mean caliber size (the universal 6mm or 8mm), barrels, etc. isnt the limits more flexible to create your dream gun?

I understand you may consider people being noob for the first gun you want to be a sniper or sniperish (is that a word?) but there are also those occasional few that may have the sniper HK and do extremly well. I have seen many experienced players have so called HK sniper... does that consider them noobs or is there an exception. My theory is that the definition of noob/newb in airsoft is and will never actually be defined (as the original term spawned for a different reason, game, etc) and there are always exceptions.

I dont want to start anything but I do relize the bounds of airsoft is more flexible to allow things you could really never see on reel steel and I do not see anything potentially wrong except for MILSIM events.

I also would like moderators involved and perhapes get locked or deleted. There is of course the voting moderation thingy that anyone be apart of... ya thats sounds wierd to me too.

Its possible, but its frowned upon because A) In real life 9 mm wouldnt be a very good sniping round (read:sniping with a Glock )

I guess its all about how you approach airsoft. Do you approach it as "I want to be realistic" or "I want to make any gun". Most people fo for the first, but there is the rare few that do that type of thing. So it is possible in airsoft, but I sure as hell wouldnt respect you or treat you as a sniper (in airsoft)

MP5s will never be considered a sniper rifle in terms of "real steel." Sure it may be one of the most accurate (in terms of "real steel") machine pistols on the market, but the effective range of a pistol round is very low. Fact is the Milsim crowd will never accept the "MP5 Sniper" as an actual sniper rifle because it doesn't exist, and the noobie crowd will always think they are "u83r l337" with their MP5 Sniper.

This thread has gone downhill and needs to be locked. I am frankly tired of reading through the disrespectful garbage that Major G has been posting, and in my book any thread where the thread starter is being disrespectful to those trying to add anything to his thread shouldn't be allowed to keep the thread going.

K everyone, listen up

Guess again browning, your the a$$ hole that keeps this going! I wasn't the first to put the "garbage" on this thread, every one else was!! You really think I'm the only one making demeaning, degrading, and snide comments and remarks? If you do, I suggest you call this number, 1-800-PRESCHOOL. Thank you, and good night.

Sup my people, I have one last thing to say. Hear me out, let me make my piont before you go and call me names again. Oh, and browning, yeah I did send you a PM saying that the Well R-6 is not an LPEG because I still don't think it is. Every airsoft website that carries it has it under thier "Full size electric guns" section or something similar. Does it look like i care what "Loki" says? You said that the Well IS an LPEG because well technically it can't take this and it can't do that and it can't roll over and play dead. Well, technically, you don't have the right to post on this thread because, well, you have no idea what I'M talking about. By the way, I just used the Spell Checker, its stupid. It highlighted the word that was wrong and it had the word corrected the exact same way I had spelled it in the first place.

1. The reason I started this thread was to see if I could get any useful advice or tips from anyone who may have already upgraded the Well R-6 and to get thier overall opinion of the gun so I could properly upgrade mine. And guess what I got, nothing but sheer crap in the face. And I know not all of you were like that either, to those select few who at least UNDERSTOOD the piont i was trying to make or helped me prove my piont, thank you.

2. Really browning? I've violated a rule? Well why don't you go and whine about it to the people before me who made smart a$$ comments and snide remarks. I wasn't the first person to do it, thats how this whole epidemic got started. Oh, well, your noob this and noob that. I never started this thread with the intention of defending myself. I've explained my reasoning and pionts in simple and clear detail, using examples, everyone whos called me names hasn't given any reasoning or explanation why.

3.If someone made degrading and snide remarks about you/to you, wouldn't you fight back? I don't think I'm being unhuman by doing so.

4. Really, I'M not even being degrading, I'm just proving my piont. Is that against the law?

5. What kind of "ego" do you really think I have? All I'm doing is proving that I have the experience because I have "cannons to the right of me! cannons to the left of me!" saying that I don't.

6. I said it before and I'll say it agian, not to mention any names (Kurt Klaus), its not about the gun, its about the person. I don't need a Tokyo to be good, thats why I'm not buying one, don't have one, and also why I ordered the Well. Half of my team already has a TM or Classic Army or something similar, if I needed to keep up with them to beat them when we play don't you think I would've ordered a Tokyo or something similar instead of a freaking Well R-6?

7. Also, I'm no more of a "noob" to airsoft than my Korean War veteran Grandpa is a "noob" to the atrocities of war.

8.Is everyone so uptight and politically correct that they have to be perfect on a CASUAL airsoft forum too?

9. Oh, look I almost forgot something. Thanks a whole lot to the swill who have littered this thread with some of the trash and filth thats on here, especially the ones that started this whole epidemic. It turns out that some people on this site ore out to just call people "noobs" and "boobs" and christ knows what else . . . and understand absolutly nothing about what I'm talking about. Only a select few though, most of whom have left replys on this thread and sent messages to me about this thread. For those of you who at least understand what I'm talking about, thank you, god bless you all.
And to the rest of you: "You guys can go pound sand down a rat hole all I care about. I'm 'a go get myself a corn dog or somethn'." - Harvey Wireman after he rode the space ride at Disney and sounded Chinese. The Phil Hendrie Show

I came to this site looking for friendly help and advice . . . and all I got was fecal matter in the face. I know it's cold and all, but it's the truth. I only want the truth and I only give the truth - excuse me for being myself.

"Hall, out!" - David G. Hall, Vice President of sindication, The Phil Hendrie Show.

LPEG=Low-Priced Electric Gun

What did your Well cost? $100? That's low priced. A true AEG cost $200+ and can take aftermarket parts made for Tokyo Marui, Classic Army, and ICS AEGs.

You can think what you want, but fact is it's an LPEG.

Browning out.

LPEGs are often full sized, hence them being listed under the fullo sized area. If you want to take your chances and buy and try and compete with an LPEG, more power to you. Also, it would be smart to respect the members here, and not to say stuff like "I dont care what the hell Loki says", as he can ban you. Thats not the smartest thing to do that to not only us but MODs and ADMINs as well.

Perhaps you would like to be next?

I have been in Ohio for about 3 hours, and this thread got my attention. I would rename this thread "How to get yourself banned in AO" and throw it in the new member section.

Hall of infamy status granted. Oh, and in case any of you gentlemen would like to contact this nice individual, his email address is:

warbuff0223@hotmail.com

His teams' email is:
TheAirsoftArmy@hotmail.com


Here are some videos of he and his friends doing stupid things to each other. (Like shooting guns int he vicinity of people without eye protection on)
http://www.theairsoftarmy.com/taamedia.htm

His homepage is listed in his profile, and his name is listed on his site. Pretty ballsy for a 13 year old if I do say so myself.
