Advertiser Spotlight: Pyramyd Air

Back in June 2011 I wrote this blurb about air guns:

Years ago, my father bought me an air gun. A BB rifle to be exact. Care to guess which one? It’s very popular, so much so that it’s appeared on the silver screen. If you guessed the Daisy Red Ryder BB gun, you’re correct. Apparently, he decided to pick one up for me for Christmas after seeing the movie A Christmas Story for the ten-thousandth time. While I appreciated that gift tremendously (even though I was in my mid-twenties when I got it!), there was a problem. You see, back then I lived in a suburb of Chicago where firing air guns was illegal.

As time went by, I’ve learned to appreciate air guns a heck of a lot more (although I still can’t own/possess/fire one in the Chicago city limits). One thing I’ve come to realize is that they just aren’t for kids. So much so that, with the price of ammunition steadily marching higher, a number of firearm owners are turning to air guns as training tools. J.I. Galan wrote in the August 2002 issue of Guns Magazine:

There are several important reasons for utilizing airguns as firearm training tools. Airguns are inexpensive to purchase and use, may be readily and safely used even in the home, and are exempt from most state and Federal firearms laws.

The matter of cost is, of course, the most obvious benefit to their use. Attaining (and maintaining) even basic shooting skills with firearms demands a great deal of regular practice. And ammunition — even rimfire ammo — isn’t exactly cheap. Just a few boxes of factory ammo for an afternoon’s shooting session can amount to a tidy sum.

Add to that the expense of driving to a suitable firing range — gasoline is not cheap these days, either — plus range fees and other incidental expenses, and the tab throws your budget into a deep dive real fast. The fact that most airguns can be used safely in or around the home, as well as in other places where firearms would be totally unacceptable to use due to safety concerns, is another key reason for their steadily growing use as training tools.

Seeing that firearms and ammunition are scarce and prices at the pump are pretty high these days, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that more gun owners are turning to air guns (and airsoft) as training tools.

Enter Pyramyd Air. You may recall me blogging about the Warrensville Heights, Ohio-based company back in June 2012 when I discussed their terrific Airgun Academy that can be accessed for free by anyone over the Internet.
