Its really not a big deal. I've been given some stuff on this forum too. Due to my financial situation, there is actually very little I can offer in most cases. You should bring it up to hobbytown and I'll see what I can do.

I can land a kickflip with my griptape being screwed up, i think if i got a new board or regripped my current board I could land new tricks.

Well, fresh grip is good. It can make a lot of difference. I remember being young and duct taping my shoes, or gluing back together chips on my nose/tail with wood glue and a clamp.

Does the duct tape help your shoes with grip or keep them together? I've seen people do it. Plus I landed a varial kickflip yesterday!

More or less keep them together. Shoe goo is used commonly too to reapply grip to the bottom of your shoes.

I still think a varial kickflip is a shove-it plus a kickflip. Thus a SHOVE-IT FLIP.

I dont know who changed that over the years. Varials are usually referred as short term for BACKSIDE shove-its. As seen in the varial heelflip. Pop shove its in that direction used to be reffered to as varial shove its, or just a varial.

Regardless, Good work on your progress. Thats the first step to getting down 360 flips. You should have them within a year of mastering shove-it flips or whatever you call them.

I already have a Spring M4 with a broken mag, Electric 200fps Boyi M4, Spring I dont know what brand G3 SG, 150 Fps Electric Mini Uzi, and a Spring P22 with universal holster. Quite a collection of ****ty guns.
I'll sell the M4 and M203 for $200. It's a nice gun, metal body, telescoping stock. I believe it shoots in the neighborhood of 350fps but I haven't chronoed the gun. 430 fps is, IMO, excessive, but that's just me.

There are a lot of local games actually, but... well, to be nice here I'll just say that I didn't really have a good time hanging out with that crowd. A little too... eh. Let's just say that this hobby is a lot friendlier and has a lot more cooperation.

If it's a matter of miniz or airsoft, I'd much prefer you get a miniz, even if it means not selling my gun.

Yea, I probably will. I just hope the one Brandon recommended stays in stock.

Well, if not I'm sure we can find a body for you. I'd give you that red one I sent you a picture of but its cracked on the front bumper and glued together. It comes off every time I race it.

Use redneck superglue: duct tape. They put it on everything, even nascar cars bodies are fixed with duct tape.
