Topic: Air guns for training

I'm sure that some of our members live in countries where the ownership or use of firearms is severely restricted or prohibited, especially for young persons. In those cases air guns can be used as useful training devices to learn safety, proper gun handling and marksmanship. In the U.S., air rifles are used in the Junior ROTC ( JROTC) program in high schools. The preferred model is the Daisy 753. I once coached a Navy JROTC unit in air rifle. The Navy furnished a portable rifle range consisting of a set of collapsible screens with Kevlar curtains that could be set up in minutes under the viewing stands of the football ( American football) stadium allowing us to shooting any weather. Our group competed against other JROTC groups in one or two face-to-face matches each year and competed in at least one postal match. Another option is airsoft. These are airguns that shoot 5mm plastic pellets. The guns are extremely realistic and look and function like the "real steel". They are powered by gas or batteries and are reasonably accurate at close range. Many airsoft teams or clubs go all out with uniforms and equipment like their real world counterparts and train and practice in rigorously authentic tactics. It may be an option for those forum members who don't have access to firearms.

Topic: Favorite gun

If I were limited to just one firearm I would pick the tried and true 1911 .45ACP.Proven reliable in combat for over 100 years.Plenty of stopping power in a quick handling package that can be concealed if need be.Acceptable combat accuracy and versitile.My top choice 1911 would probably be the Kimber Eclipse Custom 2.A beutiful gun made to the highest standards and a joy to fire.I would trust my life to it.

To me the three most practicable carry guns are ones that fire .22 mag , 380 , .45 single stack , the 380 Kel Tec fits in the palm of your hand the 380 is a hot round and up close is potent , the .45 is a hammer but requires a lot of range time to be good with it .

Well I happen to like the 'Stealth Airrow' as a air rifle. Not a misspelling but the name of this toy for boys...


Check out the options.


I like the scuba diving options.

M14 I love that gun and its variants. from the moment I touched it it just felt right you never want to put it down. Its accurate, is reliable and punch through most body armor and rip anything behind it to pieces.

That being said i want to try an HK-416.

This post always gets a lot of action.
Well, tonight I'm going to a Christmas tree lighting festival in the city square. I have been volunteered to assist with security. i will be carrying a Glock model 27 ( mini - Glock) in caliber .40 S&W. The gun has Tritium night sights and will be loaded with 124 grain Speer Gold Dot ammunition.
Don't get the idea that this is in response to the San Bernardino terrorist act. I always go around armed like that. I live in a "shall-issue' state, meaning that the authorities have to issue a concealed handgun license unless there is cause to deny one. It is not discretionary on their part.
Incidentally, one of our city councilman owns a guns shop. He says that he may be late to the party. The customers in his gun shop are lined up waiting for their state police background checks on the computer. The state police system is backed up for hours due to record gun sales on this day.
Yes, I live in a state and a country where a citizen has the right to shoot back, if they choose to exercise that right.
