Airsoft fans already know this but for the rest of us: Glock has taken out an injunction against the airsoft manufacturers from making airsoft Glocks. It’s not about safety or concern that you’ll paint the orange safety muzzle black. Glock wants a cut of the profits.
I was told you could sell your airsoft Glock online for big bucks, but then you wouldn’t have it to practice with.
If you anticipate ever needing your Glock for self-defense, you should be training and one great way is force-on-force. Police and high-end schools can use Simunitions, but many police prefer airsoft because you can use it anyplace and clean-up is sweeping the floor.
Civilians can do the same with eye protection and airsoft. Don’t surrender your training options to make a little money unless you have no other options.
I was at a gun show this weekend and saw a fellow with a police shield issued by the S&W Collectors Association. He was wearing it on his hip like police do. I have always thought this is a mistake.
What do the police think? Do they wonder if you’re a wannabe cop? Or are you one of those strange rangers trying to fool people?
Me? What do I think? I think most police associate phony police badges with child molesters. I’m not LEO, but that’s what I think too! I’m a little horrified that the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) issues Texas Ranger-like stars to their members and some of them wear them on civilian clothes. The last thing you should want is that people think you’re impersonating a police officer.
Bad Juju all the way around!
