Alright I normally don't like to post links to other gun boards
but, this post just struck me as plain funny.
A guy over at The Highroad posted about airsoft for
defending his home..at first I thought it was some kid
or a troll but, he said that he also had a real full size
1911 as well. Then why does he want a toy?
Airsoft as Personal Defense - THR
Remember folks...don't do drugsOK, here's the scenario: Its dark and you awaken to the sounds of a bad guy(s) opening your backdoor. You reach over to your nightstand and pull out your surefire, your 1911with 6+1 .45acp rounds, and your 1911 gas blow back airsoft gun loaded with 20 airsoft 6mm bbs and a fresh load of green gas. How would you go about incorporating the airsoft gun as a part of your self defense system?
The main purpose of this topic is to think outside the box. That's right, I'm not (necessarily) advocating airsoft for self defense. As an owner of an airsoft gun, its hard not to wonder about the potential of it as a less than lethal weapon. I can see many advantages and possibly more disadvantages... if it was part of your kit how would you employ it? Let's be constructive here... don't bother with a quick put down.
For those of you who still can't wrap their minds around the idea, lets change the equation:
You reach into your nightstand and pull out a surfire, a single shot .45acp derringer, and a airsoft 1911 with 20 rounds of bb's.
