Which would you rather see (Armo pistol-play vid)?
Well, my Tib's off getting the final touches done and we've got the 3357's all fixed up and ready to go! I've been lucky enough to get a camera to record a mask-eye perspective of next months Armogeddon VII big game and wondered what you would rather see?
- A montage of Tib 8.1 and Dual 3357's
- A montage of an NSG Splatmaster and Dual 3357's
- Just the 3357's
- Just the Tib/Splatmaster
Snake's borrowing my Crosman to pair with his own for the game, so he will be the one supplying the dual wielding footage, whereas I'll be using either the Tib or Splatmaster (we can then stitch together the footage accordingly!).
As far as I'm aware, neither a 3357 or Splatmaster "gun-cam" type vid has never been done, so we thought it would make an interesting intro to the team for those that haven't met us yet.

I vote for Plan X,
As they say in Team America, "You gotta have a montage!".
Wolfman, the beast won't let me remember how much we've chatted about 3357s.
I don't want to thumb a deluge about it if we have, but there's a few things you can do with your 3357s to maximize your effectiveness. I played with them mainly for a dozen years, pretty much weekly. Once every other year a new 68 cal travesty would pop up and I'd try it, then chuck it for the wheelguns. I always wore 2 but was a clearing house for them for a long time, I bet I owned over 30 though never many at once. Mods, tactics, gear, I lived them then like I do the TiPX today.
If i've never spilled it all in one place, you can start a 3357 tips thread and I'll joIn in!
EDIT: you also need some Goggleskinz;-), the glare in your sig pic is a no-no!
I have a strange feeling 6 from the top on the right hand side is you!
We play Pistol and we encourage the Few despite the discouragement of the Many.

Lot of surrenders in that vid Acrewofone, was pretty entertaining to watch!
You're right about the glare AgentSmith, I might look into one of those skinz, saves showing off my spindly arms! :P
Funnily enough, I haven't actually had the chance to use the 3357 in a live game yet, just on the range. I've been waiting til Snake got his one fixed so we could run them together, but I've got to say, it really is a fantastic piece of kit. The heavy trigger doesn't bother me in the slightest (plus I'm a fan of barrel-heavy pistols), love it.
I promised mine to Snake this time though, but you never know, I might just sneak them back and have a little play around....
Once I get a proper game with them, I'd really enjoy a chat about tips and such with you gents!

Sorry i'm going to miss this game, can't wait for the footage. Has to be crossman and splattmaster. I still can't believe you play with the splatmaster chronoing so low, its just crazy!

I don't think he expected the Crosman/Splatmaster combo to be so popular (I did ).
It's a weird little pistol, came to me in absoultely knackered condition but a little TLC got it working again - the thing is, even though it's only chronoing 140, I daredn't make any changes to it because it shoots so damn good!
Once took it to a Diamond Wars game in 2011 against a load of very trigger happy opponents (not sure if you heard, but at that particular event there was a LOT of overshooting claims in the aftermath). Took a fair few of them down - lots of swearing came my way when they realised what I was using!
Hopefully catch you soon!

If you can, I would mount the cameras on masks rather than the markers. Sometimes it's too hard to see whats going on with the barrel mounted cameras, and some people can get motion sickness from them.
