You know more about airsoft than I do, do you think someone would buy a $140 gun, + a $20 mag, + $12 4000 .25g BB's for $160? I'd obviously label that it won't shoot, and that all it probably needs is a new battery.

I'm debating whether to return it, get a new battery and try it, or just sell it and buy a niiice new SSB and forget about airsoft all together.
I'm going to be honest with you Flop. I would definitely return it...

Spoiler
No I'm kidding get a SSB of course! We know that if that doesn't work then its your fault, not the company's :laugh:

A SSB Proto X has been calling my name for quite some time.

EDIT: Oh look, 800th post spent complaining about a POS gun. Nice!

I'm going to get a Southport, Ocean Isle, or Southport Shore

Congrats on 800! :clapp:

Then how am I supposed to buy stuff for airsoft? No one around here sells that crap. And supposedly this place has the best customer service. Yeah, right. Sure.
How can there be a restocking fee for defective merchandise?? If you had changed your mind it's one thing; but as a legal matter they cannot send you a defective item under the pretense that it is not defective and then try to charge you to replace or refund it.

Either way it'll be at LEAST $30 to return it, and will be at LEAST a 3 week turn around time, as it takes 6-7 days to ship to CAL via UPS. The whole reason I bought this thing was to play with my friends this week, and that's not happening, so I have little to no interest in this thing at all anymore.

I found out today that I will not be getting a raise this year (our reviews/raises are done in April every year and that is the only time). This comes after our company is up 8% for the year, is building a new store, and I have had my boss tell me "I don't remember what I did before you were here". The company cited ecenomic concerns. Tell me what is wrong about this scenario.
Keep in mind that small business taxes also are going up dramatically it looks like, so that could have something to do with it. With the rise in costs of operating small businesses, it is no wonder that so many are going under.
We got the quote on our health care insurance renewal. CPI is flat year over year, but insurance went up 13%. And I don't want to think about the percentage by which revenues are down. It's a tough climate right now.

(Not a rant--just an observation.)

+1

You need to argue with them. That's crap.

Was it bought on a credit card? Dispute the charge with the credit card company and tell the store you will send the item back as soon as they send you a pre-paid UPS or FedEx label.

Virus!

Virus!

I think my laptop has a virus called go.google :at-wits-end:

I have no idea how I got it. It redirects all my google searches and it keeps AVG and Avast and Windows Defenders from updating. I can't even setup other anti-virus programs and online scanners don't work. AVG and Avast scans show no infections. It also makes Firefox crash all the time.

I'm still looking for something to get rid of this. :angry:

Me too. This is the first time I have had any trouble. That's why I want to know how it snuck in. I haven't opened any attachments lately or even downloaded anything that I can recall.

If I were feeling evil this evening (I'm not), I'd say the Google Image gods had finally caught up with you.

DOS prompt. Format C. That should take care of it (and everything else as well).

Yeah, that seems to fix pretty much everything. I'll even put it in steps.

Step 1) Press WINDOWS KEY, then R.
Step 2) Type cmd and then ENTER
Step 3) Type format C:

That should do it! Hope you got your OS discs around! LOL
