Cool as a Dead Star: The DL-44 Blaster Airgun Turned Solo Movie Prop

This gun needs very little introduction. Even Californians can recognize the DL-44 Blastech Blaster. This one, though, is special. Not only is this a one-of-a-kind reproduction of a classic galactic war film prop, it is also a working BB gun.

Browning’s Buckmark URX Pellet Pistol

GnatWarefare: Airsoft an Emerging Practice and Training Aid - With the Right Targets

Airsoft is fun. I was introduced to airsoft almost two decades ago, in my brother-in-law’s back yard. I took on a few well-armed six-year-olds, and realized just how out of shape I was. I had the advantage, I thought, as I could aim well and had a sound strategy. They had stamina. They won.
