Daily Deviation !

My BMW 335i vector/vexel has been featured as a Daily Deviation on DeviantArt! It's not a big deal but it boosted my ego and I'm glad to know there are people interested in my Photoshop scribbles.

"The Daily Deviation is a daily staff feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART.

A small assortment of submissions is chosen each day by a select group of staff members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large."

Review | Golden Eagle 4x32 rifle scope

The hell with Aramex Shop & Sh!t service, I bought a rifle scope from a firearm store here in Kuwait.

Just like Japan fighting aside with the Germans in the world war; this Japanese scope makes a perfect match with my German air-rifle. I could not find a better scope with a decent price tag other than this one. It costs 20KD where the same model (4x32) made by Gamo costs around 35KD and the top of the line Gamo 3-9x32 (w/zoom) costs 55KD.

It comes with two-piece scope mounting rings (11mm dovetails), protection caps, and soft cloth for cleaning the lens. Water proof, fog proof, shock proof, Multi-X / Duplex reticle, and very light in weight making it reliable for any weather situation. The eye relief is about 3" which is perfect.

Sighting-in the scope took me a little over two hours. It was a bit hard but eventually I managed to do it and it was all worth the effort. Using my friend's Bi-pod I was able to shoot cigs from 25 meters with pointed pellets. Keep in mind when you want to sight-in your scope to start close to your target, adjust the levels then keep moving away while adjusting it until you reach over 25 meters.

I took these pictures before adjusting and tightening the scope perfectly hence you see the mounting rings pushed a bit to the front of the dovetails rail.

iQuote | ARAMEX Shop & Sh!t v.2

"You know you failed to grasp luck when you find a flaw in a system and go blabber around about it without taking action then soon you realize the opportunity is lost." --Mac.

Before I wrote my last entry about ARAMEX I checked their site for their restricted products list and it didn't mention firearms accessories as part of illegal shipments.

Then a few days ago, after more than two weeks since my entry, I received this email...

"Dear Mac

Just to make sure I went directly to their site because I know they are committed to keep my product for 90 days and not 72 hours because I wanted to include that in my reply, I stumbled uppon their restricted products list once again to find out the following...

"Aramex will not ship any item that is prohibited by any law, regulation, state, or local government. Below is a general list of materials that are strictly prohibited.

Acetone, Alcohol, Ammunition, Batteries, Camping Gas, Cash, Currency, Collectible Stamps, Coins, Cigarette Lighters, Cleaning Fluids, Cosmetics, Drugs, Prohibited by Law, Explosives, Fire Extinguishers, Firearms and Accessories, Fireworks, Flammable Liquids, Fresh Flowers, Gas Cylinders, Gases, Glue, Hazardous Material, Human Parts and Remains, Inflammable Items, Lighter Fuel, Liquid Products, Liquid Compressed and Spray Hair Products such as Shampoo, Hair Gel and Mousse, Live Animals including Birds, Reptiles and Fish, Paint Remover, Paint Thinner, Perfumes, Perishables, Perishable Food Stuffs and Food Beverages Requiring Refrigeration or Other Environmental Control, Pesticides, Pornographic Material, Tobacco, Toxic and Poisonous Products, Weapons, Jewelry and Knives.

Please refer back to this page on a regular basis for updates on this subject.

Two weeks ago firearms "accessories" were not on the list. I should have kept my mouth shut and sued their @$$ for not shipping my product.

Verdict: If you find a flaw in legal documents/statements don't tell anyone about it and try to use it for your own good before they discover it.
