Sample text

If someone objects to your shooting you could begin by explaining that your activities are legal, but if they still object you should try to work out some kind of solution to any problems they may have. You could for example show the person with objections the stringent safety set-up that you have established in terms of your shooting range, and demonstrate the fact that air pistols exhibit a very low level of noise. The correct means of carry when trans­porting pistols – a sturdy, lockable case.

It has already been stated that the shooter should wear protective eye glasses when pistol shooting. This is particularly important when firing BB pistols, due to the much greater risk of ricochet presented by BB projectiles. When considering the pistol you wish to buy, it is worth noting that many club ranges will not allow the use of steel BBs on the range as they consider the potential risk of ricochet too great for safety. A lot of pistol shooters who wish to fire a blowback style pistol think that their only option is to go for a BB pistol, but though the majority of blowback pistols on the market do use BB ammunition there is also a couple of extremely good blowback pistols that fire pellets, these being the Beretta Storm PX4 and the Magnum Research Desert Eagle.

The greater the degree of pressure you have to exert on the trigger in order to operate it, the greater the degree of disturbance you create. A simple analogy can be had from dropping a small pebble and then a big rock into a still pool: one will create tiny ripples and the other, waves.
