D-Day

Hi all.

So yesterday I resigned from my current company, after almost a year of searching jobs and pulling every string available to me it finally happened. it’s gonna sound cheesy but I’ve not been very comfortable in my job for the last years.

Only 4 more trips to Stockholm in this truck

Now it’s set up so I quit on the 30th April and have a few days off (Hopefully the same weekend as the world championship in men’s ice hockey 😂 ), At the beginning of May I get to start my new job in Sweden of all places.

Speaking of the hockey world championship (RANT WARNING), That final game between Finland and the USA in the women’s WC was so badly managed I don’t even know what. The decision on the “winning goal” was in no way justified, how can the goal be rejected but the opposition’s goalie gets a penalty? 🤔
There are two ways that could have played out:

  1. The goalie is penalised as it were, but then the goal should have been approved and the game over.
  2. The Finnish player is penalised for goalie interference and the goal is rejected.

But what actually happened was some kind of amalgamation between the two, seeing as they penalised the US goalie but also rejected the goal? Also, the IIHF representative almost literally said “shit happens, deal with it”.

She’s probably thinking the same thing as me,
“I haven’t seen such bad judges since the Sochi Olympics

All my heart goes out to the women’s “Leijonat” and hopefully we’ll get some decent judges next year.

In other news 😂, Last saturday I went to Sweden for my personal start of the airsoft season. It was tons of fun after having literally nothing to do all the long winter 😂, too bad I had to use the M4 instead of the AK because the battery for the AK didn’t hold a charge for more than 15 minutes (should have tested it a bit earlier than the day before…).

My gear hasn’t changed much since last year, but I’d really need to get a new chestrig

I also banged my knee straight into a rock, I don’t know exactly when it happened but I suspect that one time when I came up to our flag on a hill, saw one of my teammates coming towards me with his deadrag out and suddenly I saw an enemy player downhill aiming at me. I took a nosedive and crawled backwards a bit into a depression to get away from the enemy fire. I tried taking a few potshots at him, but alas there was two more in the vicinity. After the game when the muscles in my knee cooled down I started limping and limped all the way back home 😂, So lucky that I have an automatic gearbox in my car and yes I should be wearing kneepads and from now on I will, too bad they didn’t show up before yesterday 😐

The Season Is Upon Us

👋 👋

So I’ve been kitting up for the upcoming season of Airsofting. It all started with a new gun, they had a “demo” tactical AK for sale at Wizeguy action shop in Uppsala. So I snagged that one and after that, it derailed 😂

I also got an actual magdump for my rig and some new magpouches because with the new gun I also got a 5-pack of 120 round midcap magasines and the magpouches I got with the rig was supposedly going to fit 2 AK mags each but they barely fit one.

I’m aiming for some weekend games maybe next weekend or the one after that. Before I go I’ll have to cut a new lens for the protector for the sight. the clear one was broken when it arrived and the yellow one doesn’t work for me.

As you can see in the background I’ve also bought a couple of Lego-sets. You can never be too old for Lego 😂 I wanted to buy some at christmas because I found a set with a truck pulling a trailer with a helicopter on it, but I didn’t buy it then and after that they didn’t have it in stock anymore, but lo and behold when I was in Uppsala to pick up the AK I found that exact set and I had to get it.

All the parts I ordered for S80 has also been installed except for the front springs since they delivered one spring that was correct and one that was just slightly too big. Right now it seems as they’re gonna send me a replacement on warranty. I also didn’t get any rear shocks even though I ordered them.

I was gonna post a proper picture of the S80 since I got it washed, but then I went driving on an infamous dirt road back home in Ostrobothnia aaaaaand now it’s brown instead of red. Well maybe later, I’d still need to give it a proper handwash and maybe even polish a bit.

P.S. I was thinking about getting a cheap actioncamera to strap to the gun or my helmet and record some gameplay. Sound off in the comments below if that’s something you’d like to see.

First Time Airsofting!

Hiya!

So I went airsofting for the first time today, Had to get up early to catch the boat over to Sweden. We warmed up with a Team Deathmatch with instant respawn and then played two games รก 45 minutes of what they called Clocks.

The way Clocks works is similar to Conquest in Battlefield, We used three chess clocks to mark the time each team had held the three objectives.

Unfortunatley I had to cut the last game a bit short because it started drizzling and my goggles fogged up instantly.

Overall I’d say it went pretty well, I felt like I got the gist of it and maybe I died a few times too much, but in my defense they had two professional teams on-site today.
