      Woman shooting down range. It is well known that air guns, airsoft rifles and airsoft pistols are excellent training aids.

    Quad Copter like ones used by U.S. Marines as target practice For a lot of people, drones are like marmite; you either love them or hate them. People have often complained that these drones have invaded their personal space, with Richard Madeley (of Richard and Judy fame) stated he even considering taking down the eye in the sky with an air rifle (we don’t recommend you do this by the way!). But for the military, commercially available drones can pose much more of a threat than they do to Joe Public; one which they have never had to face before. Continue reading →
