google yields nothing.. other than a great article on it. going to the Umarex site, one can spend as much on an air gun, as the rteal thing... Expen$ive hobby, that...

Very Cool though.

That vid was just corny as hell.  Cool revolver though, or whatever.  Air guns can be cool but I prefer mine without the spaghetti drama.

You are at war now; the liberty of your enemies is not an important concern.

Early May the nursing home is going to have a Wild West theme.
Again.
I have been asked to assist in setting up the shooting range as was done in the past.

6 years ago we had a very successful day-long shooting event.
Was most-likely the world's worst re-enactment of a Western Town.

Battery-powered air-soft BB pistols shooting little western icons (3 in tall at 10ft).
Winner was a very elderly Resident, woman in a wheel chair, who put down 10 targets in 8 seconds.
She had an uncanny resemblance to Ma Barker.

2nd and 3rd places were two nurses who have CCW license and practiced shooting with their boyfriends. 4-9th places were more Residents.  10th was a male staff member.
Trophy for 1st place, prized for 2-10th.

Surprised the heck out of me how good the older people were.
Local newspaper carried the winner's photo in a "Dirty Harry" look alongside a half-page writeup.
She proudly displayed her trophy in her room until she went to the great shooting gallery in the sky.

The event received rave reviews by readers, not one anti in the editorials.
Nobody cared that the gun was a 10-shot 1911 clone - it was what would fit the Residents' hands, and weighed the least.  Apparently, very accurate as well.

I have a Colt peacemaker .22 pellet gun that runs off of CO2. It is fully functional and was produced in the late '50s. I got it for $30 at the flea market because the guy couldn't get it to hold pressure. Turns out the old leather gasket had rotted, so it was an easy fix.

Colt allows there logo to be put on BB guns? Funny the company looks for income in this manner when they could have made a fortune by gearing up to satisfy consumer demand for AR15's and 1911's. A lot of other firearms manufacturers are cashing in by doing this, why can't Colt? My guess is that corporate bean counters ruined them.

Colt doesn't produce much these days. Tooling is expensive, but people will pay to put their logo on things, and that is free money for Colt.

What's kind of nifty is that Remington will sometimes let you use their logo for free if you ask nicely. They consider it free advertising. Colt charges you a licensing fee, and I haven't looked into any of the other gun brands since that basically covers the bases of what we have in-house.

Not such a negative remark.  Lots of folks note that Colt's ability to make good things has taken a serious hit.  Their brand is their cash cow.  Brands don't get injured on the factory floor, nor go on strike, nor have to face stiff regulations and wacko politicians.

Here's a negative remark on Colt:

Know why Colt's LLC is not moving from CT?  The buildings are costing less and less in taxes, nobody wants to buy their old buildings in slumland Hartford, and besides there's not much left to move!
