Gnat Shooting

Looks fun!

"The ATS Gnat has been hugely popular in the UK for many years, and has featured in events such as high profile celebrity charity shoots held at most of Britain's most famous shooting grounds, to private parties at country estates. The Gnat Shooting System is unique. Shotgun events normally involve the downing of conventional targets such as clay pigeons or game. We have perfected a high speed, maneuverable, radio controlled drone which takes the sport to the next level."

The aircraft flies at speeds of up to 80 mph, with extremely rapid directional changes and fighter like agility. Controlled by very experienced "pilots", the shooters prey is probably one of the hardest targets they will ever encounter.

revolvers?



I know, there's nothing sexy about a GP100, even in Blue .357 variety, but I still like this thing a lot.

Thoughts on a Vaquero in .45 Colt? I've fired the Blackhawk, and wonder how the different grip shape would compare. That, and no rear sight?
Like this! .45 Colt Blackhawk with Sambar stag horn grips.

To me there is.

It's a great thing that we all don't like the same things, or we'd all be standing in one giant line.

I actually think they're more sexy in blued than stainless.

That's real nice.

Awesome. I think the Ruger Blackhawk is one of the all time greats. Just an awesome handgun in any caliber.

Sorry for the auto being in the shot. After shooting the .500 everything else feels like a toy.
