Double post because I snagged a CO2-powered, officially-licensed Glock 19 airsoft gun at my local Meijer. Gonna be dropping plastic balls on paper butts.

Post it! I've been looking at ones to buy. I have a G17 that is a single shot. I want to train in my condo!

Maybe it's a BB gun and not airsoft? I'm at work and don't have it handy. On the one hand, it has an orange barrel which usually means airsoft; BB guns are "dangerous" and therefore don't typically require the same orange markings as airsoft and other replicas. On the other hand, it was $70, which suggests it's a BB gun and not an airsoft gun. Also, it's CO2-powered and the only links I can find online for CO2-powered Glocks are BB guns and not airsoft.

It looks like this: https://www.evike.com/products/77830/

But was only $70.

Here's the BB gun on Umarex's web site; note there's no orange barrel: https://www.umarexusa.com/glock-g19-gen-3-177-black

So until I get home and can look at it again, I don't know WTF.

I specifically want one that has, "Blowback."

But, I could do air soft in the house...

I ran the drill five times with a Glock 22 that had a freshly-installed CMC flat trigger. I did reasonably well, four clean runs out of five, but my best clean run time was still shy of Butchís at 4.09.

Then I ran it with the 96D Brigadier. I had to crank my par time up to six seconds to consistently get clean runs. That long DAO really wants to wander when Iím trying to shoot fast. I did fifteen runs, and all were under six seconds, but only seven were clean.

In other news, I finally unpacked that G19 airsoft gun. It is airsoft, and it is CO2. Non-blowback, which means it has a long, heavy DAO style trigger. Way longer and heavier than that on a normal Glock. So I guess itís a good thing I spent some time on the 96D today.



I'm specifically looking at the blowback ones. I'd love getting to drill in my bedroom.

If you had asked that nurse out maybe you already would be.

Another woman came up. I also think that nurse might have been really young.

Don't worry, it has only been an on again off again thing for about a year now. I loving hate the ambiguity of texting due to this entire debacle of a relationship.

(Now that I've said those things, I'm sure I'll end up marrying her or something equally insane.)

Using a par timer and the airsoft Glock 19, I got down to 4.4 seconds and clean runs. Any faster than that and it started to fall apart. As an added challenge, I had the phone (par timer app) on the bench, I'd hit the random start button, and walk toward the targets, drawing and engaging on the beep. I had no idea what foot I'd be on so I just had to grip, draw, and shoot.

Would you post a picture of your set up? I need to see if I have room

I did it in the indoor range at work, but you can use any place where you have a way to hang targets with a safe backstop, a space three targets wide, and about five yards of working room for distance. If I didn't have the range at work, I'd either use the county outdoor range, or hang targets from the clothes line in my garage with the doors open and use my driveway as a backstop (I live in the middle of nowhere).

Yeah, I live in a condo. I couldn't handle a yard or driveway maintenance, but I'd love the room.

My family used to throw darts constantly. They started me when I was four, throwing on a board in a little chair. Ever since flatscreens have been a thing (even Hammerhead darts will bounce out on occasion) it has completely hosed our places to throw darts.

A dart and a pellet gun can both kill flatscreens. Or hurt my birds. Both would be awful.
