  1. for the minimal effort involved, i'd say no.
  2. well the fan does move back and forth naturally. I haven't come across any fan, old or new, that doesn't.
  3. should be able to use any 120mm fan you choose as the mounting brackets simply attach to the fan with screws and then clips onto the tower. There are supposed to be pads on that bracket, you might want to ensure that they have not slipped and is making inadvertent contact with the fan blades.
  4. The connector goes both ways. if it detects a SATA drive, it will use the sata bus. if it detects a NVMe drive, it will directly use the PCIe bus.
  5. wrapping your head around TDP is a loosing battle. They are made up numbers based on made up numbers.
  6. https://www.amazon.com/Dell-5000-14-Quad-Core-Bluetooth/dp/B07XR8C2YR/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=ryzen+3500u+laptop&qid=1574466222&s=electronics&sr=1-5 oh, <$400. ee... well https://www.amazon.com/s?k=ryzen+3500u+laptop&i=electronics&rh=p_36%3A30000-40000&qid=1574466222&rnid=386442011&ref=sr_nr_p_36_4 use a powersearch when possible.
  7. well it's a side mount scope rail, but you're gonna have to give me a little more info on the manufacturer.
  8. the correct word is OBTURATE. and to be perfectly honest, it will elongate, not compress. the bullet diameter is .268 in 6.5 carcano, and the first hole they bore in the barrel is .262-ish. when they go to cut the rifling in the barrel, that groove size from wall to wall will be .268. because the rifling is smaller than the projectile diameter, something has to give. copper and lead will yeild much sooner than steel, so the projectile will obturate into the bore. what you have to be concerned with is the actual cartridge specification. if it chambers hard, DO NOT SHOOT IT. the bolt should drop without use of excessive force (wrist pressure at most, or whatever you can muster using just your thumb). any more and you could have a head spacing issue which can cause excessive pressure and in most cases, a pierced primer sending hot gases rearward (safety glasses bro)
  9. If that sign is legit, and I were a member, i'd draw out a D60 or several and bumpfire that mother effr until I ran dry. Such rules are only made for and desired by FUDDS. I would happily self terminate my membership by such means.
  10. Honestly i can't suggest a firearm for someone to carry. there are far too many that all have different traits that either make or break a firearm for a person. I would be remiss to say, Go buy this" or "go buy that". no no. Go TRY this. Go TRY that. Put 100 rounds through it. Pick up another one, do the same. Pay attention to the mechanics of the firearms and yourself. Figure it out DEFINITIVELY what you dislike about a particular firearm and aim to improve on that feature. You will find one that fits your personal tastes, and if it's a $1000 handgun... honestly so be it. As DJ Muggs once said, "save yo money man..." Make sure what you start liking is reliable. like DEAD reliable, cuz if you need it and it malfunctions and it's a known malfunction... you're dead. ...and not airsoft "hit!" dead either. like, DEAD dead. or worse. The point I'm making here is... take this endeavor very seriously. I've had to use lethal force before. It sucks, and the realization hits home fast and hard.
  11. I think it's important to remember that just because a gun kicks like a mule doesn't mean it's trash. Every micro i've ever fired kicks like a mule. That's the result of physics. Keep in mind, micros are not supposed to be range or target pistols. If that's what you're looking for, i would HIGHLY advise you to stay FAAAR away from anything micro or on the micro end of sub-compact. Every full-framed glock I've shot feels the same regardless of the caliber. They are a 100% duty gun through and through. not a target, not a pocket conceal gun. They fit in that use case of "I use this gun for things i do every day". Great for home defense. but so are MANY OTHER full frame firearms. some better than others. what it boils down to is your personal preferences and use case. Case and point: I bought a Springfield Hellcat over a Sig P365 for two reasons: #1 i PREFERRED the Hellcat's sight picture, and #2, i PREFERRED the hellcat's trigger as i have owned and used other springfield XD triggers over the years and feel very comfortable with it's break and reset, so it's second nature to me. Otherwise the Sig is a great little firearm for concealed carry. But that's me, and there are plenty of people who carry full size handguns all day just fine. I cannot. I needed a micro knowing full well that recoil is remarkable, but it's because of all that personal need that i learned to shoot the micro with high competency. What I can't shoot are revolvers or anything double action. I don't know why, but it's not something i use a lot, so... there's that. Everyone has a different need to fill with a firearm they purchase. I wouldn't expect the trigger of an airsoft 92 to be at all like a M9, or a glock replica airsoft trigger to act, feel, and reset like a G19. I ain't hatin' on airsoft, i think it's got a place and purpose, but if facsimile realism is what you're after, i'm afraid airsoft might not be it. You're using air and BB's at engagement distances that might as well be point blank in the real world. you know it wont kill if handled inappropriately. the total system weight is all wrong (how many rounds do you carry into a airsoft match?). The mentality is all wrong. I'm a big believer in "Train the way you fight" and that means using the tools... the REAL ACTUAL TOOLS you plan to fight with. 3-gun ranges and competitions are a GODSEND for such things, and has made me a better shooter through practice, patience, and perseverance. What you need to do is find a mentor and a place to learn what you find feels right to you. after that, you can start figuring out what you want the gun for, and then start shopping.
