Shooting is a passion for some people and a hobby for many. While many prefer hunting a game in the woods, there are others who find pleasure in plinking and hunting rodents in the garden. It is a fun-filled experience to spend a lazy afternoon plinking and hitting targets with your kid in your own backyard.
But, wouldn’t you be asking too much of your kid, if you expect him to hit the target with your gun? Of course it will! To make things easy, Norica has come up with youth training rifles that are ideal for training your kid in shooting. The best part about these Norica Young Air Rifles is that they come at an affordable price. So, you no longer have to shell out a large amount of cash to get your kid his very first hunter sport air rifle.
Norica Young Sport Air Rifles are .177 caliber youth training rifles that have a muzzle velocity of 670 feet per second (fps) when fired with Performance Ballistic Alloy (PBA) ammo. If you don’t care much about the velocity, a cheaper option is also available. You can load these Norica Sport Air Rifles with 7.7-grain lead pellets and still get a decent muzzle velocity of 590 fps. Norica Young Air Rifles are ambidextrous hunter sport air rifles and can be used by all kids, whether they are left-handed or right-handed. These youth training rifles come with a lightweight, white-painted wood stock, a break barrel, an adjustable rear sight for windage or elevation, a hooded post front sight, a 11mm scope rail, and more.
These hunter sport air rifles are made in Spain and are specifically designed to suit young shooters during their training phase. So, if your junior wants to become a shooter, then gift him one of these Norica Sport Air Rifles and watch him become an expert marksman as he grows up.

Are you an ardent hunter who likes to venture out into the woods to hunt a game? Or are you one who is easily satisfied by plinking targets in your own backyard and hunting down rodents in your garden? If the answer to either one or both the questions is “yes”, then the Beeman Silver Sting Air Rifle is what you need for your shooting activities.
The Beeman Silver Sting Air Rifle is one of the two air soft guns that come under the Crossover Series, the other being the Beeman Heavy Target Rifle Combo. These Beeman air rifles are a blend of American and European design and are suited for hunting, backyard plinking, field target, and small game hunting. This Beeman air rifle can also be used to shoot spinners.
The .177 caliber Beeman Silver Sting Air Rifle employs a spring piston technique that can be assembled easily. These Beeman air rifles can be used comfortably and effortlessly by both right-handed and left-handed shooters, thanks to the ambidextrous, all-weather, synthetic stock with Monte Carlo and rubber buttpad. Beeman combo kits consist of a receiver that is made completely out of steel and has a nickel plating, just like the barrel, to withstand any weather condition.
These Beeman combo kits come with a Bushnell Banner 3-9 x 40 scope that has-finger adjustable windage, elevation knobs, and an adjustable objective. (It’s always better to have this Bushnell Banner scope professionally mounted by an expert gunsmith from Beeman.) A fluted sleeve is also included in Beeman combo kits to provide enhanced stability when a shot is fired. A tin of 200 Beeman pellets is also included in the kit.
From hunting games to shooting rodents, from target practice to plinking, the Beeman Silver Sting Air Rifle is the perfect choice to keep you going.

The MAS P5-A4 AEG is the latest addition to the PRO Player Series of airsoft guns. It is an officially licensed replica of the MAS P5-A4 Submachine Gun, which is branded MAS by Cybergun.
AEG refers to Automatic Electric Guns, developed first in Japan. These guns generally use a rechargeable battery to run the electric motor inside. The Cybergun MAS P5-A4 AEG uses an 8.4-volt 1100 mAh capacity Ni-MH battery, to run the motor that drives a series of gears, which are mounted inside a metallic gearbox. The gears then compress the piston assembly against the spring. As soon as the piston is released the spring pushes it forward through the cylinder sp that a pellet is thrust into the chamber and then to the muzzle through a long barrel.
The MAS P5-A4 releases the pellet at a speed of 340 feet per second. You can achieve maximum accuracy by applying more backspin to pellets with its adjustable hop-up. The pellet spin offsets the air resistance and gravity, thereby increasing its vertical accuracy. There are 4 positions on which you can adjust its rear sight for windage and elevation to help you aim properly.
This full-/semi-automatic Cybergun MAS P5-A4 AEG is a great choice for backyard skirmishes and for fun targets. You can continuously be in action and concentrate on hitting the targets because it uses 200 rounds magazine. No wonder they are the most popular and widely used guns.
These 0.24 caliber airsoft electric guns have a metal/ABS plastic construction, which makes them sturdy and durable. These guns weigh merely 10.50 lbs. If you want to become a good shooter and also want to teach your children how to shoot, I suggest you to go for the Cybergun MAS P5-A4 AEG. If you are wondering where to get one of these airsoft electric guns, you don’t have to look far. Sportsman’s Depot offers the Cybergun MAS P5-A4 AEG for just $147.25.

All of us want to have a peaceful and well-ordered life. But it is not always possible. You or your loved ones might be attacked any time. The very thought makes you uncomfortable, doesn’t it? It’s better to learn to defend yourself before it is too late.
When it comes to self defense, there are a variety of products that you can opt for, like pepper sprays, personal alarms, and electronic control devices. In my opinion, the Taser C2 Personal Protector is the best weapon to protect yourself. Believe me, with this product, you will be at peace, knowing that you and your family are completely safe.
This Taser Personal Protector is slim enough to slip into your purse or your pocket, so you can carry it anywhere. This Electronic Control Device (ECD) makes use of the Neuromuscular Incapacitation (NMI) technology, which affects the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system and impairs the muscle control temporarily. So however powerful your attacker maybe you’ll have enough time to run for cover.
Unlike other self-defense systems, the C2 Taser Gun doesn’t have any specific target area. So, you can use it anywhere on the body to get the same effect. This feature is extremely useful when you are under any threat.
This Taser Personal Protector uses the same technology used in law enforcement models. A non-lethal device, it works even at a distance of 15 feet, giving you enough space to protect yourself from the attacker. The Taser C2 Personal Protector increases your security options further with an integrated LED light and laser sight. It has built-in LED lights for use in the dark so you’ll feel safe even in the dark. Aim accurately with the laser sight.
Another very useful feature is the Anti-Felon Identification (AFID), which prevents the misuse of the Taser Stun gun. All in all, the Taser C2 Personal Protector will definitely make you feel safe.

The Beeman R7 Air Rifle-1 is a fine German firearm that offers an ideal balance between power and pellet stability. The spring piston-operated Beeman R7 Air Rifle-1, delivers a muzzle speed of 620 fps and is ideal for accurate target shooting.
Like all spring guns, this Beeman air rifle is cocked by a mechanism that demands that the barrel is hinged at mid point (break barrel.) The rifle provides easy cocking. The double-jointed cocking lever requires much less cocking effort – 18 lbs, which makes it suitable for small shooters and women as well.
The Beeman R7 Air Rifle-1 is perfect for hunting small rodents and game, hitting spinners, plinking, and target shooting. You can teach your wife and children how to shoot during weekends. Plinking at balloons, tin cans, glass bottles, or any other similar targets, which are handy, can make them good shooters with a little practice. Importantly, the Beeman air gun is also safe and it weighs merely 6.10 lbs.
You can increase the accuracy of the R7 Rifle by mounting a rifle scope on the 11 mm dovetail grooves on its receiver. The rifle comes with checkered grip to help you hold the gun steadily, whereas the rubber butt pad reduces felt recoil on the air rifle and adds to the control. The Beeman R7 Air Rifle-1 also has the legendary two-stage adjustable Rekord trigger, which gives a sharp, predictable, and adjustable let-off. With all these, you will definitely have more hits than misses when you use this Beeman air rifle.
The satin finish on the stained beech stock protects your rifle from minor scratches besides giving it a cool and stylish look. The 0.20 caliber R7 Cocking Spring-piston Gun is one of the few guns that are made with such features. The Beeman R7 Air Rifle-1 will win you over completely, once you hold it in your hands.

Do you own a classic Benjamin 392 air rifle? The old model used by your father or grandfather must have worn out over the period of time. But, I am sure you don’t want to give away your priced possession. You might have even oiled it to check if it worked, but in vain. Do you wonder if you can ever bring this classic rifle back to life again? Stop worrying; because you can definitely do it. You just have to get a repair kit for your cherished rifle to make it a timeless piece.
The Benjamin Sheridan Repair Kit is available in the market for your Benjamin air gun. You can disassemble your Benjamin air rifles to check if they need this kit (you may not need the whole kit to repair your rifle.) The kit fits both 392 and 397 versions of Benjamin air rifles. It, however, doesn’t fit the Sheridan Blue Streak (CB9) and the Sheridan Silver Streak (C9) Air Rifles.
The Benjamin Sheridan Repair Kit for both 0.22 and 0.177 caliber air rifles contains everything necessary for the internal mechanism of your weapon to function well. The kit also includes a special key to install the valve. It is easy to fix the parts too – you can replace the internal parts by first removing the rear part of the stock.
Once this is done, remove the pins/screws that hold the retention cap at the rear of the receiver. If you are not confident, I advise you to take an expert’s assistance – the Benjamin Sheridan Repair Kit doesn’t include instructions.
The Benjamin Sheridan Repair Kit contains important parts and tools, which will surely revive your rifle and restore it to its former glory. Moreover, you can save a lot of your money with this kit.

The Beretta M9A1 CO2 Pistol is the modified version of the semi automatic M9 pistol used by the United States military in the 1989s. These Beretta blow back air guns are used by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. This single chamber and single barrel pistol uses the energy from the recoil of a single round of ammunition for extracting and ejecting the fired cartridge from the chamber and load an unfired round for the next shot. The Beretta M9A1 1:1 replica sold at Sportsman’s Depot uses a 0.12 gram CO2 cartridge and has a muzzle velocity of up to 380 fps when 0.12 gram BBs are used. Its performance is even better with 0.20 gram or heavier BBs due to improved accuracy.
The M9A1 has more aggressive front and backstrap checkering. It has a beveled magazine well for easier reloading and a reversible magazine release to help left-handers.
A picatinny rail has been added for attaching lights, lasers, and other accessories to your Beretta M9A1 CO2 Pistol. These pistols come with PVD-coated magazines to cope with sandy conditions better.
These pistols include a safety mechanism that reduces risk to the shooter in case of a slide failure. Beretta M9A1 Airsoft Guns are propelled by CO2. To compress the air that is used to force the BB out of the barrel, the gas is either stored in the magazine or on-board. It is used later to cycle back the slide, which causes recoil by cycling the slide back and forth.
Beretta M9A1 CO2 Pistols have an all-metal construction and so are highly robust. These 0.24 caliber M9A1 pistols weigh 5.40 lbs. They are also highly durable and have a life of thousands of rounds, which is above the service life contractually required for the pistol.
So, if you want an authentic pistol with unmatched firepower, I recommend you to go for one of these Beretta M9A1 Airsoft Guns.

It is dangerous to shoot without wearing shooting gloves. If you don’t wear them, you run the risk of harming your fingers and hands. It will also put a lot of stress on the nerves that are under your fingers, making them numb and weak. Why risk all these when you can protect them by wearing suitable hand gloves. A variety of hand gloves are available in the market. One of the most popular among shooters is U/M hand gloves. Specially designed for shooters, they protect your hands and fingers from injury incurred while shooting. That is why they are regarded as one of the most important shooting accessories.
When you shoot, a firearm usually recoils. This has a damaging effect on your hands. U/M Medium Hand Gloves are made of saddle tan or durable black cowhide and are ergonomically designed to make you feel comfortable. They have shock-dissipating gel insert to protect the web between your thumb and forefinger. There are Lycra inserts as well to give good flexibility. These shooting gloves are open-finger gloves and fit your hand well – the VELCRO hook-and-loop fastener wrist closure provides a snug fit.
The middle finger of these U/M gloves is extended and is padded to protect your finger against sharp trigger guards and rollback effects of revolvers. These meticulously made shooting gloves will keep every part of your hand safe, and thereby, will keep you in action endlessly. The palm of the gloves is unpadded so that you can reach the trigger without any problem. It also helps you to have a firm grip on the pistol.
Though designed for shooters, you can wear them even while riding your bike. They are excellent for riders as they dampen vibrations from the bike.
You shouldn’t be waiting anymore. Be a smart shooter; wear medium U/M Shooting Gloves.
