    why would you need a laser sight on that thing? it's probably only get a range of about 100m accurately.

    Get a proper one...
    [​IMG]

    or something a bit more special? The MP5 SD

    [​IMG]

    or the G36
    [​IMG]

    or why not go for a .50 cal hand cannon??

    The sight is a red dot, for quicker target aquisition, I shoot timed precision and open sights are too awkward.
    I wouldn't put it much past 50m for effectiveness.
    The Sig isn't a bad piece, I shot one in France last year.

    MP5 :yes: best thing ever for what its designed to do, also weapon of choice for all the baddies in the Die Hard films. I have this version in .22lr, much cheaper on ammo than 9mm.

    [​IMG]

    The Steyr Aug 2 is better than the G36 despite the trigger linkage making for a heavy pull.

    The .50 Eagle is an idiot tool, ever fired a 12bore one handed? The .454 Casull in a revolver is much more controlable.

    We should arrange an AudiSport shoot night. I could get it sorted at my local club for around £15 each.

    Mm, .50 Cal. They are popular in the channel islands, they tow out a boat as a target and leave it anchored, then shoot at it from a hill a mile away:laugh:

    @NHN, as long as it has a minimum length of 24" its ok, no semi autos though. A lot of long barelled revolvers are just that, a really long barrel. Mine has an 18" barrel and an extended counterweight bar extending out of the handgrip to make it over 24" in total length.

    The majority of gun crime in this country is carried out with automatic 9mm pistols, which are illegal.

    Guns will be provided. .22lr target rifle, .22lr semi auto and possibly .38 underlever rifle.
    Saltley / Alum Rock area.

    You need about 6 - 10 people, I will be one of the range officers for the night and it should cost about £12 each if I do so.

    Ah ok, but does beg the question, they moan about gun crime & yes I see your point about the 9mm, but they moan then they allow guns anyway is that what you're saying, cause its very contradictory dont you think?

    I mean ok when I lived in cape town for a year that place warranted some lethal protection given its you or them possibly if the event ever transpired, never did but still that country & neighbours are a whole new ball game than the UK(for now that is huh)

    Sure, sounds good, but I have to stress that I can't do Friday-Monday evenings which is most likely the time you will arrange for this, so hopefully, you can get a slot that's good for me. ;)

    Ahh, as I am trying to book it as a corporate evening we can only do it Monday or Friday, the range is in use the rest of the time.

    But if you want to look at taking up shooting as a hobby you are more than welcome to come down either Tuesday or Thursday and I will get you aquainted with the club secretary who will give you all the details. You will know I am there as my A4 will be outside.

    Probationary membership costs around £40 for three months. For that you get range time, use of a gun and full instruction and coaching. Afterwards you can sign up for full membership. You will start with a .22 semi auto rifle and move onto a .38sp/.357magnum rifle (John wayne underlever style). Ammo is about £3 for 50, targets are about 15p each

    Also as a probationary member you can attend Kingsbury 300yrd range as a visitor with Cannock rifle club and play with the big stuff:gun2:

    Let me know if you want to come along for a chat and I will give you the address and let them know you are coming. 7.00pm till about 10.00ish.

    @205man, fancy a day of clays? I have just bought a Supernova and haven't used it yet.

    @A4Quattro, Its in Birmingham, bit far for a few hours. I do occasionally shoot clays at Detling if you want to meet there one Sunday?
