Tokyo Marui Automatic Electric Guns

TM? Trade Mark. No! It's Tokyo Marui. Read this information from wikipedia to know more about this... I rather say highly recommended brand when it comes to quality and precision of the airsoft gun.

Tokyo Marui was the first company to produce airsoft guns powered solely by electric-motor driven air compressors. This compact air compressing system, in which Tokyo Marui dubbed "Automatic Electric Gun" (AEG) in the year 1992, was implemented in their first battery powered automatic firing replica, the FAMAS F1. Tokyo Marui's original design ushered in a new era of airsoft guns. Instead of using external air systems to power airsoft replicas (see Classic airsoft), the Tokyo Marui AEG concept pioneered the use of self-providing electric powered air power. Their groundbreaking AEG system is still in wide use today, and it has been copied numerous times through the years by many other airsoft gun manufacturers.[citation needed]

Tokyo Marui's airsoft replicas are made primarily from ABS plastic bodies, but also feature some metal parts, usually where needed. Some of their more recent models, however, such as their Type 89 rifle and AK-74M have featured full metal externals. The internal gearboxes of these guns are primarily powered by rechargeable batteries. A standard, unmodified Tokyo Marui gearbox will fire 0.2g BBs at around 240 to 300 feet per second (around 0.8-0.9J) depending on the model. These gearboxes may be modified for higher performance by the installation of aftermarket parts, but Japanese law limits their power to 0.98J.

Bonding Over War Games

At Camp Bundela, barely five kilometres from the Indian Army’s Babina firing ranges in Uttar Pradesh, Sergeant Donald Jeik of the US army is enjoying a game of pool with an unlikely partner, an Indian soldier who has just developed fancy for the cue.

The 29-year-old mortar man, assigned to 2nd Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment, is one of the 300 American soldiers who have come from Hawaii to take part in Exercise Yudh Abhyas 2009, an annual Indo-US military drill from October 12-29.

More than 1,000 soldiers are taking part in the war games, aimed at promoting cooperation between the two militaries while sharing training, cultural exchanges, and building joint operating skills.

This year’s Yudh Abhyas features 17 Stryker vehicles— the largest deployment of these armoured combat vehicles outside of Iraq and Afghanistan.

On Monday, the two armies showed what they could achieve together as they went about the business of enforcing peace in a fictitious country (called Karera) torn apart by terrorism. Its neighbours were exporting its miseries.

The exercise involved T-90, combat vehicles, anti-tank missiles, US army’s mini UAVs and live firing of Javelin anti-tank guided missiles.

Lieutenant General A S Sekhon, the army’s director general of military operations said India had a lot to learn from the US experience — especially in the field of technology — in Afghanistan and Iraq.

US War Games Test Afghan Battle Plans

WASHINGTON: The Pentagon's top military officer has conducted secret war games to evaluate the two primary military options that have been put forward by the Pentagon and are being weighed by the Obama Administration as part of a broad-based review of the faltering Afghanistan war, senior military officials said.

The exercise this month, led by Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, examined the likely outcome of inserting 44,000 more soldiers to conduct a full-scale counter-insurgency effort aimed at building a stable government that can control most of Afghanistan. It also examined adding 10,000 to 15,000 more soldiers and marines as part of an approach dubbed ''counter-terrorism plus''.

Both options were drawn from a detailed analysis prepared by General Stanley McChrystal, the senior commander in Afghanistan, and were forwarded to the President, Barack Obama, by the Defence Secretary, Robert Gates.

The Pentagon war games did not formally endorse either course; rather, they tried to gauge how Taliban fighters, the Afghan and Pakistani governments and NATO allies might react to either scenario. Admiral Mullen has discussed its conclusions with senior White House officials involved in discussions over the new strategy.

One of the exercise's assumptions is that an increase of 10,000 to 15,000 troops would not give US commanders the forces they need to take back havens from the Taliban commanders in southern and western Afghanistan, where shadow insurgent governors collect taxes and run court systems based on Islamic law.

The Obama Administration initiated a review of its war strategy late last month after questions emerged about the legitimacy of the Afghan elections on August 20, and a troubling update on the war by General McChrystal.

What was intended to be two or three weeks of intensive White House meetings has stretched on for almost a month.

General McChrystal's analysis has drawn wide support inside the Pentagon. It suggests that 44,000 troops would be needed to drive Taliban forces from populated areas and to hold them until Afghan troops and government officials can take the place of US and NATO forces. The extra troops would allow US commanders to essentially triple the size of the US forces in the south of the country, where the Taliban originated and have their strongest support.

The increase of 10,000 to 15,000 soldiers would give General McChrystal one US advisory brigade of about 5000 to speed the development of Afghan forces and a large number of support forces.

US officials say Mr Obama might settle on a plan but delay announcing it until after a run-off in the Afghan elections, scheduled for November 7.

Airsoft Gun Related News: Carjacker Nabbed After Hitting Ferndale Dealership

Suspect thought to be tied to Troy incident, as well

FERNDALE/TROY — A convicted thief suspected of forcibly stealing vehicles from car dealerships in Ferndale and Troy was arrested following a police chase on Woodward Avenue near I-696.

According to Ferndale Police Detective Lt. Bill Wilson, at around 3 p.m. on Oct. 21, Ferndale officers responded to a reported armed robbery at the Fresard Buick-Pontiac-GMC dealership at 21800 Woodward Ave.

The caller indicated that a Fresard salesman had been showing vehicles to the suspect, 21-year-old Bryan Lance of Pontiac, in the dealership lot when Lance put a gun to the salesman’s head and stole a used 2009 Chrysler 300. He then took off down northbound Woodward, Wilson said, and officers from Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, Berkley and Royal Oak began a high-speed pursuit.

As Detective Brendan Moore noted, “Carjackings are fairly common, but it’s pretty unusual for something like this to happen at a dealership.”

Moments after the theft, a Pleasant Ridge officer conducting a traffic stop on Main Street near 10 Mile Road observed the stolen vehicle pass him as it headed northbound on Main, Wilson said. The officer followed Lance to a nearby parking lot, but as he approached the suspect vehicle, it drove back onto Main and sped away traveling southbound.

Near 10 Mile and Main, Lance crashed head-on into an SUV occupied by a man and woman. The collision did not cause any injuries to the passengers, however.

“(Lance) couldn’t have been going that fast when he made contact with the car,” Moore said. “It appears that he slowed down significantly and tried to swerve around them.”

Lance then exited the stolen car, pulling out a fake handgun as he began to run southbound on Woodward, Wilson said. Witnesses on the road reported that Lance pointed the gun toward them and then toward a Ferndale officer, who was exiting her vehicle and preparing to approach the suspect from the south.

“Our officer had been monitoring the pursuit on the radio,” Moore said. “She was already stopped, and then she saw him running toward her with a gun pointed in her direction.”

The officer responded by firing two shots at Lance, which missed him but caused him to surrender to police. Wilson stressed that no one was hurt in the incident.

After Lance was arrested, the officers discovered that his weapon was not a real gun, but a toy airsoft pistol. “It’s not at all uncommon for criminals to use a toy gun like that,” Moore explained. “Those airsoft guns look very realistic and could absolutely pass for a real handgun.”

The officers also found that Lance was in possession of some fake police gear, including a phony police badge and some toy handcuffs. Moore stated that Ferndale police are still investigating why Lance was in possession of these items.

“That’s the real stumper of the case,” he said. “We have no clue why he had that stuff, and he’s not saying anything about it. It’s entirely possible that he was using them to impersonate a police officer.”

On Oct. 23, Lance was arraigned in Ferndale 43rd District Court on charges of carjacking, armed robbery and fleeing and eluding police. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison. Magistrate Larue Mead set bond at $900,000 cash or surety and scheduled a pre-exam conference for Nov. 5.

Troy police believe that Lance could also be responsible for an Oct. 20 carjacking at the Elder Ford dealership at 777 John R Road.

“We’re looking very closely at him as a possible suspect,” said Troy Police Lt. Michael Lyczkowski. He said that evidence police confiscated from Lance following his arrest in Ferndale may link him to the Elder Ford incident.

Moore confirmed that this was a strong possibility. “There is evidence that leads us to believe he was involved in the crime in Troy,” he said. “He has also been convicted for stealing cars in Troy over the last two years.”

According to reports about the Elder Ford case, the suspect asked to talk to a salesperson about a specific Ford Fusion, a 2010 SEL, for sale in the new car lot.

Police said the man got into the driver’s seat of the Fusion while the salesperson stood outside the vehicle. The man then reportedly pulled a black semi-automatic pistol from the waistband of his pants, pointed it at the salesperson and demanded the keys to the car, Lyczkowski said.

After the salesperson handed over the keys, the man told him to walk away, and then fled the lot in the Fusion, police said. Highland Park police later recovered the Fusion abandoned, but with no visible damage, in that city at around 12:45 a.m. on Oct. 22.

War Game Examines Energy as a Disruptive Technology

Energy as a weapon and an enabler could dominate future battlefields, according to a recent war game that focused on military energy requirements. Participants in the 2009 war game, which had the theme “Future Energy Requirement on the Battlefield,” examined energy produced, packaged and used in novel ways to enable persistence.

The Director of Defense Research and Engineering’s (DDRandE’s) Technical Intelligence Program is briefing the results of its 4th annual future disruptive technology war game to offices within the organization and other participants. This year’s game, which took place in June at the National Defense University, focused on the effects that a breakthrough energy technology could have on U.S. warfighting capability and science and technology investment. The exercise did not limit participants to any specific ideas such as traditional or alternative fuels or near- or long-term solutions, but rather sought to examine any possibility and its ramifications.

Technologies employed for energy generation, transformation and transport that would or could support high-energy weapons systems on the future conventional battlefield garnered the most attention, according to Capt. Robert Barton, USNR, commander of the DDR&E Joint Reserve Unit, the office responsible for the event.

War game personnel considered the impact of technologies and applications required to enable or disrupt future battlefield operations requiring vast amounts and various forms of energy. The goals of the event were to determine which commercially available technologies—prioritized, if possible—could be used or combined into applications to produce either a capability advantage, or conversely, a disruptive threat; technology or application areas in which potential adversaries would be likely to make investments that would deter or mitigate a U.S. technological advantage; the impact of identified potential threats from a Defense Department perspective and the effectiveness of current capabilities in mitigating the impacts; and the science and technology areas the department should invest in to counter or mitigate those threats.

Col. Dave Robie, USAFR, vice commander of the DDR&E Joint Reserve Unit, explains that the energy focus is important to the military, which currently operates in an unconstrained energy environment. Though the supply can be expensive, U.S. forces never have lacked the resources they need. As the Defense Department moves forward, energy may become more constrained, and leadership will have to make decisions about all types of energy sources, not just fossil fuels.

The final, approved results of the event are not available for public release. They are delivered to leadership and participants who include members of the Defense Department, industry, venture capitalists, academia and other government laboratories and agencies. Those who are briefed can use the information for additional studies. Overall success was judged by the effect that the game results and recommendations have in informing the science and technology planning process and spotlighting a need for future assessment.

The war game supercharges other analyses by completing a great deal of background work and research. Col. Robie explains that the military is preparing to conduct an energy study on the battlefield that will start out at a higher level because of what was accomplished in the war game. The outcome is of interest to several Defense Department organizations and the service branches.

One of the big challenges for the war game each year is determining what will be a disruptive technology. “That’s the trick,” Capt. Barton says, adding that quite often the answer is a convergence of several developing technologies that combine to become a game changer. War game personnel examine what would create a significant impact on U.S. forces if such technologies were available to them or their adversaries.

To help identify the most important technologies, a variety of subject matter experts on different topics gather to assist with the war game. Lt. Cmdr. Mike Richman, USNR, another member of the DDR&E Joint Reserve Unit and the war game co-chair, says that with enough brainpower, diversity and technical expertise, the event feeds itself and results in thought-provoking exercises that help answer what the technologies and capabilities can do in future conflicts.

Capt. Barton emphasizes two key takeaways from the annual war game. Because it is an intellectually unconstrained environment, it yields unique and valuable insight that, along with other factors, inform policy, budget and follow-on deep-dive study efforts. Also, it leverages the nation’s citizen-soldier brain trust coupled with intelligent personnel from other areas to solve difficult military problems. The citizen soldiers involved with the effort bring their civilian life knowledge and contacts to bear in the experiments.

Classic Army AEG, What About It?

I tried researching the details behind this airsoft manufacturer, the Classic Army Airsoft Gun, they say...the world leading brand in Airsoft. and here's what I found from wikipedia...

Classic Army AEG

Classic Army AEG

Classic Army (Yick Fung International) is a manufacturer of airsoft replicas. The headquarters for this A.E.G. manufacturer is in Hong Kong. They produce automatic electric guns or AEGs. Designed to resemble real firearms, these replicas fire 6mm plastic BBs at safe velocities. Within the airsoft community, Classic Army is often abbreviated as simply "CA."
Compared with other airsoft manufacturers, Classic Army AEG's are characterized by their many metal parts or, "Full Metal" meaning that each part that is metal on the real firearm is reproduced in metal on the replica, although it is not the same as the metal parts of a real firearm and will not enable use or operation as a real firearm. These metal components usually include the frame and body, as well as the firing mechanism (called a "gearbox"). Replicas also feature pre-upgraded internals such as metal bushings and polycarbonate pistons.
As with most AEGs, Classic Army replicas use rechargeable batteries (either NiMH or NiCd). In an un-modified condition they can be expected to fire 0.2 g BBs at approximately 280-340 feet per second (FPS).
These are the AEG products they have (Classic Army AEG replicas are available in the following models):
* Heckler and Koch G3 based
* Heckler and Koch HK33 based
* Heckler and Koch G36 based
* Heckler and Koch SL8 based CA8-2 Rifle
Heckler and Koch MP5 based (all with B&T Markings)
Steyr AUG based
AK-74 based
* M249 SAW based
* SR-25 based CA-25
* M14 based
* M16/AR-15 based (all with Armalite markings)
* M4 carbine based (all with Armalite markings)
FN SCAR based
* AR-10 based
* FN FAL based (DS Arms SA58)
* Ak-47 based
* P90 based
* Heckler and Koch HK416 based
UMP based
* Dragonov SVD (rifle) based
LWRC based
Classic Army has also released a new series, "Sportline", which forgo the metal bodies of CA's more mainstream AEG's, now known as the "Proline" series. These guns come with a plastic body, and the other standard equipment included with MPEGs. This new line is designed to compete with the new MPEG guns coming from Chinese manufacturers, such as Jing Gong, Dboys, CYMA, Kart, and A&K. The Sportline Series includes CA 416 series (based on Heckler & Koch HK416), CA 90 series (based on P90), AUG (based on Steyr AUG), M15 Series (based on M16 and M4 carbine), MP5 series (based on Heckler & Koch MP5) and SA M7 series (based on Ak-47). Even more recently, Classic Army has released metal-bodied sportline models. They have similar bodies to the "proline" models, however the trademarks are of a lesser quality.
Aside from AEG Crassic Army also have SPRING and GAS Airsoft Type.

Airsoft News: Danville High School Principal On Leave After Incident with Airsoft Gun

By Eric Louie Contra Costa Times

The principal of Monte Vista High in Danville is on administrative leave while the school district investigates her handling of an Airsoft pistol gun in front of a student.

Rebecca Smith has been on leave since Oct. 8 while the district investigates an incident in which she "handled a gun in an inappropriate manner in the presence of a student," said San Ramon Valley school district spokesman Terry Koehne.

He said the district has determined it was an Airsoft pistol which shoots plastic pellets that generally cannot break the skin. They are available at sporting goods and other stores. The pistols, generally considered a toy, are not powerful enough for hunting.

Sources have told Bay Area News Group that the incident stemmed from actions before a girls volleyball game, when a player had an inflatable toy that resembled a gun. The student was called to the principal's office, which is where the incident with the Airsoft pistol took place.

Smith could not be reached for comment. Her attorney, Robert Bezemik, of Oakland, issued a statement Wednesday saying he could not say much about the incident involving the 35-year district employee.

"Because this involves the privacy interests of several participants, unfortunately we cannot publicly discuss any specifics at this time," he said. "Hopefully, common sense will prevail once she receives a fair and impartial opportunity to present her side of the story."

Koehne said the Advertisement district is not releasing details of the incident, but he said it happened on campus. He said the district received an anonymous tip about the incident Oct. 7, adding that Smith's leave is a routine procedure while the district investigates. He did not know how long the investigation will take.

Koehne said Smith is being paid while on leave. He did not have her exact salary, but he said principals' salaries range from $99,000 to $130,000.

Retired administrator Duff Danilovich has been brought into help run the school. He was a middle school principal and high school assistant principal in the district before his retirement.

School Board President Bill Clarkson said he could not comment, as it would be inappropriate because the case could go before the board. He said trustees have not met about the issue.

While rumors have been circulating about the incident and some parents are upset no official announcement was made, Koehne said the district was limited in what it could say because it is a personnel issue. The district e-mailed an announcement to parents Wednesday after Smith's leave was reported in local media.

Smith could not be reached for comment. She came to the school in 1981, working as an assistant principal before becoming principal in 1996, according to the school's Web site.

Her time at the school has not been without controversy. In 2007, a district audit found that nearly $100,000 raised by recent graduating classes was spent for items not approved by students. The funds were raised by each graduating class during their years at the school, with students determining where the money goes, but administrators instead transferred the cash to other accounts and decided where to spend it. Items purchased included computers, landscaping and rugs.

Airsoft Gun Review: Tokyo Marui G36C Electric BB Gun

Tokyo Marui G36C Airsoft

The choice for many SF Units and Counter-Terrorism Forces the world over. The Tokyo Marui G36c boasts the EG1000 motor, version 3 gearbox, folding stock and a bottom rail mount. Additional side rails can be easily added for laser and flashligh upgrades. The Tokyo Marui G36c has pin-point accuracy and packs a nasty punch. The magazines will even clamp together for lightning quick mag changes. Military forces and law enforcement in Europe and USA are currently using the real Heckler & Koch G36C. The H&K G36C is increasing in popularity and will soon be a one of the leading military & law enforcement assault rifles -such is the design and quality prowess of H&K.

So, not surprisingly Tokyo Marui has taken over the project to make G36 as electric airsoft gun. Featuring solid construction and extreme attention to detail once again, this Tokyo Marui AEG appears to maintain the high quality standards of what we have learned to see from Tokyo Marui.

Tokyo Marui’s Airsoft AEG’s are the standard to which other Airsoft companies aspire. Tokyo Marui’s Airsoft AEG’s are characterised by their high quality ABS Plastic Bodies and Metal MechBox. These high quality parts make the Tokyo Marui Airsoft AEG’s very durable and they keep shooting straight and fast under almost any punishment. These guns use rechargeable batteries and typically when unmodified, fire 0.2g BB’s at around the area of 270- 305 feet per second and 0.8~1J of kinetic energy. Tokyo Marui’s Airsoft AEG’s are very reliable and realistic and you will not be dissappointed with your purchase. Please note, Tokyo Marui’s are cast in authentic gun molds and due to customs regulations some of the guns are not allowed into the U.S. without having their original trademarks removed.

Electric Airsoft Rifles use batteries as their power source, they’re usually fully automatic, and they shoot very fast. If you are looking for continuous fire fun, this is the type of Airsoft Gun for you – just hold down the trigger and watch those BB’s stream out, one after the other, in a straight, swift line – which means fun and entertainment, plain and simple. This Electric Airsoft Rifle doesn’t require any pumping just simply point and shoot.

Airsoft Gun Review: Jing Gong Produces the Best MK36 (G608) For The Money!

Airsoft Gun Reviews,Airsoft Gun Reviews Jing Gong MK36 G608,Jing Gong Airsoft Guns

Jing Gong MK36 G608,Airsoft Gun Reviews,Jing Gong Airsoft Guns

Jing Gong Airsoft (JG), a Chinese Airsoft Manufacturer, has been producing some very impressive Airsoft Guns lately. Mostly TM and CA Clones, Jing Gong has raised the bar on producing the sub-$200 airsfot gun, with some models coming in right around the $100 range. The Jing Gong MK36 (G608) is no exception to this line of quality airsoft gun. Priced under $120, this Airsoft gun is worth every dime.

When you first observe the gun you'll notice there is nothing flashy about the packaging, which is typical of the Jing Gong airsoft gun product line. Once you open the ordinary black box you'll realize there is nothing boring about this gun. The Jing Gong G608 is a great clone of both the TM and CA MK36, MX, & SR36 airsoft rifles. Jing Gong insists you can use any TM, SRC, or CA part on this AEG, but we recommend reviewing the various on-line forum posts. We have confirmed that the TM, SRC, and CA airsoft magazines will work in this gun.

The package comes with everything you need to get started: 8.4v 1100maH mini-battery, wall charger, Hi-Cap magazine, a starter supply of BBs, a manual, and a clearing rod. The gun itself weighs in at 6lbs 1oz (Gun, battery, and empty magazine), and is very well-balanced. It is built out of heavy-duty Nylon ABS plastic and has a solid folding stock for CQB situations. The overall body design is tight, with minimal seams, and no wobble. Metal parts include: flash hider, iron sights, selector switch, and charging handle. The battery fits into the foregrip, which is easily removed by pulling out a single metal pin and sliding forward. The foregrip space is pretty tight so you might be limited to a 1400mah battery without the use of an external PEQ box.. We only tested with the included battery. The weapon sports a top and bottom weaver rail for mounting your favorite airsoft gear. Over all, the build, durability and design are pretty close to the higher end TM, SRC, and CA MK36, MX36, and SR36 Airsoft electric guns.

The Jing Gong MK36 G608 comes with a 470-round high-capacity wind-up type airsoft magazine. It's constructed of solid ABS plastic and has the stackable pegs on both sides so you can clip another magazine to it. This is great for quick magazine changes in the heat of battle. The airsoft magazine that comes with this AEG is TM compatible.

The MK36 G608 comes with an adjustable hop-up. The hop-up is set by pulling back the charging handle to expose the hop-up wheel. The hop-up dial has a solid, yet smooth feel to it. From what we've observed the hop-up stays set and is not prone to going out of adjustment due to vibration, use, etc.

On this model Jing Gong uses metal gears and metal bushings (earlier models had plastic bushings). Additional internals include a plastic spring guide and a plastic, vented piston head (for a better O-ring seal). The result is consistent FPS (see G608 performance testing below). The rest of the internals are identical to the TM MK36 and SRC SR36 model. The wiring is 16 gauge.

(Note: all of our performance testing was done with TSD .2g BBs) - The Jing Gong MK36 is louder than most, but we prefer that because it tends to intimidate on the skirmish field. We ran this gun through the Guarder 2000 Chrono. How did it do? FPS ranged from 350 to 365 feet per second (FPS), and rate of fire was around 900 rounds per minute. Accuracy is decent out to about 125 feet, and the hop up holds a flat trajectory when set properly. We were easily able to hit a soda can at 125-150 feet. Use of .23g or .25g BBs may increase the accuracy of this airsoft gun. We shot four full magazines through the G608, varying the Semi and Full-Auto setting. We only had one gearbox lock up, which was easily remedied by putting the gun on full-Auto and firing off a few rounds to line the gears back up. Overall handling is a dream. It's no wonder the Airsoft MK36 design is enjoying so much popularity these days. We can't wait to take it out on the skirmish field!

Crosman Challenger PCP Airgun The Latest and Greatest in Air Guns

ROCHESTER, New York –-(

Crosman is proud to introduce the latest and greatest in competition airguns; the all new Challenger PCP.

This sporter class air rifle was recently reviewed by the National Three-Position Air Rifle Council’s committee and was approved as legal for use in sporter class air rifle competition.

This gun is getting rave reviews from the shooting community. Here is just one of the comments we have received…
"This is by far the best looking Sporter air rifle I’ve ever seen! I’m glad to see that someone in the shooting industry finally designed a Sporter that allows the shooter to make the necessary adjustments to their particular shape and stature. This will also greatly enhance the shooter’s transition from Sporter to Precision.” – Major Ron Wigger, Head Rifle Coach, U.S. Military Academy, West Point
Three-Position Air Rifle Shooting is one of the fastest growing and most popular forms of shooting sports competition for young shooters and shooting groups. Two different Three-Position Air Rifle events are available.

Precision Air Rifle, which is modeled after the Olympic-style shooting event, is an event that allows for the use of specialized equipment. It can be cost prohibitive so it usually attracts the veteran shooters. Designed for new shooters or those who want to compete with a more modest investment in equipment, is the Sporter Class event. In both types of shooting events, competitors fire at targets 10 meters away, in three different shooting positions; offhand, kneeling, and prone.

Three-Position Air Rifle Shooting provides young shooters with competitive shooting sports opportunities offered on a wide variety of easily accessible or easily constructed ranges. The equipment needed is commonly available at affordable costs and many groups like Junior ROTC, 4-H, NRA have programs for the Three-Position Air Rifle Shooting sport.


Airsoft News: Youth gun violence in King County

Editor, The Times:

I wholeheartedly agreed with Beth Colgan’s perspective in her guest commentary in The Seattle Times, “Community intervention effective at dealing with kids packing heat” [Opinion, Oct. 2].

Editor The Times:
In May 2009 a 12-year-old and 14-year-old were arrested for firing Airsoft guns, shown above, on a Seattle school bus. Incidents like these, of carrying dangerous weapons on school property, are making city leaders rethink the way they deal with youth gun violence.

She makes an excellent point in her critique of King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg’s call for a new state law to mandate jail time for juveniles who are in possession of guns. Colgan states these youth would be better served if judges would order them to participate in proven community-based programs designed to give them the therapeutic, and culturally specific services they need to destroy their misguided fixation on carrying around firearms.

Time and time again, research-based programs have shown that community-based intervention and prevention projects more effectively serve violent-prone youth than does sending them to state-run detention centers. Plus these programs are far less expensive to operate than youth jails.

Although Colgan is correct in pointing out that fewer than a fraction of 1 percent of Washington youth have been adjudicated for gun possession, Satterberg is right to ring the alarm bell regarding the devastation caused by those few youth who have wantonly maimed and killed people recently in King County.

As the chair of the Metropolitan King County Council budget committee, I believe we must focus our attention on finding a way to identify, improve and better utilize programs that can provide help to these youth in our community.

I do not think the facts currently warrant passing a state law incarcerating all youth found guilty of being in possession of a gun.

— Larry Gossett, Seattle

Repealing the Second Amendment

Danny Westneat’s column was a tragic story [“A test of strength, every day,” NWWednesday, Oct. 7], but one that needed to be told.

The presence of a gun in the house turned what would have been a long, confusing night, followed by some drug treatment for dry cleaner Phu Phung’s son, into a tragedy for the family and for all of us.

It’s time to repeal the Second Amendment.

— Michael Kale, Seattle

Airsoft News: Man threatens residents with Airsoft gun in downtown Milwaukie

By Matthew Graham (The Clackamas Review, Oct 2, 2009)

St. John’s Catholic School was locked down Friday and people fled an area of downtown Milwaukie when a 15-year-old reportedly began threatening other residents with what appeared to be a firearm.

According to Milwaukie Police Department spokesman Officer Kevin Krebs, police were called to the intersection of 25th and Washington streets in downtown Milwaukie around 12:15 p.m. on Friday after citizens wrestled the threatening suspect to the ground, disarmed him and he fled.

airsoft guns,airsoft news
Jaime Valdez / Pamplin Media Group
Milwaukie High School students and witness give their testimony to Milwaukie policemen
about a man walking around with an airsoft weapon around the school.

“It was reported that some citizens had wrestled this subject to the ground, had taken the gun from him and he was last seen running from the area,” Krebs said. “Officers arrived on the scene and after a brief foot pursuit caught up with the subject. He was taken into custody without incident.”

Krebs said what witnesses thought was a gun was actually an Airsoft gun. Airsoft guns are typically highly detailed replicas of actual guns but which shoot non-metallic pellets. The pellets velocity ranges from 100 feet per second to 850 feet per second.

“It’s becoming an increasing problem,” Krebs said. “The Airsoft guns, however harmless they may be, they have an appearance that mimics and models real guns. And obviously without very close examination, you cannot tell the diff between an Airsoft gun and a real gun … Here we have an individual on the corner, kiddy corner to two schools, the potential obviously is grave … The results could have been disastrous.”

Krebs said the suspect was taken into custody and was being questioned Friday. He said charges will likely be filed, and that the charges for threatening someone with an Airsoft gun are the same as those for threatening someone with a lethal firearm.
