Airsoft Glock 17

I'm not much of a photographer but for what it's worth, here's a snap of my Glock 17. Sadly it's not the real McCoy, being an airsoft replica. It's a gas-powered full blowback model meaning that each shot give the weapon a little bit of a kick. Range isn't great but for plinking in my backyard it's perfect. This airsoft replica is accurate enough that you can even mount rail lights made for the "real steel", complete with all the usual Glock markings. Airsoft guns are also useful for practising drills that you couldn't otherwise do with a live weapon, such as indoor training. Ideal for training to fight off goblins in your own home.

The background is my DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material) SAS smock.
