I just wanted to share with you readers a site you may have but probably didn't know about, pimpmygun.  It's a neat site where you can put together parts from various guns and tactical accessories to see how they would look.

           It works for a lot of different gun models, though AR-15's have the most parts by far.  Below are some designs that I made using this site.

        I based all mine off M4's simply because of the wide variety of customization, and the fact that I'm getting an M4 RIS for Christmas ;)   Let me know what you think, and try out the site yourself!

Black Friday Deals

So what did you get this Black Friday?

I found many of the best deals were on AirsoftMegastore.com, some of which are still going on.  I bought:

  • A midcap AK mag for $2
  • An extended hicap M4 mag for $8
  • An M14 rail mount for $15
  • A Diamond Tactical 1x32 ACOG for $37
  • A JG BAR-10 for $50
  • And a free spring MP40

So here's the math on how much I saved:

  • The AK mag was normally around $15  -  An awesome $13 savings
  • The M4 mag was half off - normally around $20  -  $8 savings
  • The M14 mount wasn't on sale but on Amazon is $30  -  $15 savings
  • The ACOG was 38% off normally $60  -  $23 savings
  • The BAR-10 was an amazing half off  -  $50 savings
  • The MP40 was free  -  $20 savings
That adds up to $129 savings - that's more saved than I spent!  I only wish I hadn't missed out on $0.01 TSD BB's and $0.05 MagPuls, but I really can't complain :)   Thanks Airsoft Megastore!


Accuracy tests

     Following the completion of this target, I decided to use it to do accuracy tests on various AEGs. These include the JG G3, CYMA AK-47 and CYMA M14.

Airsoft Targets

          While the most fun in Airsoft comes from going to battle with your friends, or anyone else, "plinking" in your backyard is also a fun way to shoot Airsoft, whether just taking a new gun out to see how it performs, sighting it in, testing accuracy, or just shooting targets for fun.  

          There are many ways to do this, most of the varieties relying on your target.  Shooting an interactive target is much more fun than just aiming at trees, which is why enjoying target practice relies so much on what target you are using.  

          Rather than buying any targets, few of which seemed worthwhile anyway, I made a multitude of different targets and tried them all.  Read more to find out about many of the targets I made for a few dollars each, which you can make from cheap, easily accessible materials.
