    Awsome sports kit
    Airsoft or paintballing well worth the investment and you never know that when your in a game you might come across a pupil that realy annoys you (i shot one in the neck in the summer i was 100m away from them and it was a public event)

    Airsoft! I'd so love to get into that, but don't have the spare ££ to get into as it's pretty expensive isn't @bushby?

    Hmm, may have to set aside a pot of money to make a jump into the Airsoft scene. Am I right thinking I'll need about £200 for a relatively decent rifle and sidearm? Then ammo and kit on top?

    It'll help save you a packet in the future and you can do cool stuff like this as well:



    I also have this, and Torque Pro. Belting, and cross platform car-wise. My netbook is Vx/VAG in depth, but this is plenty enough day to day. Saved me £300+ in the first week by ID'ing a duff catalyst, which was fixed by a long run with a petrol/nail varnish remover mix in the tank..heh.

    Seriously. Save as much as you can while you have money, because you won't always, and the day you want your own home you'll be sitting around wondering where to get £10-30k from.
    True. When we looked to buy, my missus was "I have £6k we can put down as a deposit..you have £7k in your bank"..in chimes my mother the Accountant.."er..actually, here's your current financial statement from all of your accounts etc..put down a £35k deposit, that leaves plenty in reserve".

    Floored, we both were. Damn accountants - she delights in holding the details from me and twiddling things...not that I mind. I live from my current, spend very little and save religiously. I told her to take all the details and hide them again after - I don't want to know, and what I don't see, I don't miss.
