Pis­tol Promise

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I’ve just read through your first Air Gun­ner is­sue as editor and must say that I en­joyed the va­ri­ety and your ef­forts at mak­ing the mag­a­zine ap­peal to as many read­ers as pos­si­ble. I’ve been a reader since the very first is­sue in 1984 and en­joy John Atkins’ col­umn the most – prob­a­bly no sur­prises there!

As a long- term pis­tol and ri­fle user/ col­lec­tor, I welcome your in­ten­tion to fea­ture pis­tols reg­u­larly be­cause they of­ten play sec­ond fid­dle to ri­fles. As I’m sure you will see from your coach­ing ses­sions, pis­tols can be a se­ri­ous com­pet­i­tive tool and whilst I also used to com­pete in pis­tol matches, I ad­mit I en­joy the plink­ing as­pect more th­ese days. That prob­a­bly goes for ri­fles too, if I’m hon­est. I don’t have a need to hunt th­ese days, and no longer com­pete, but get im­mense sat­is­fac­tion from hit­ting the mark with an old gun – be it ri­fle or pis­tol.

I en­joyed your review of the Glock 17; there are three vari­ants of this pis­tol on the mar­ket, as I’m sure you know and I’m putting the fi­nal touches to­gether on a de­tailed review for your sis­ter mag­a­zine. Good luck in the role of Air Gun­ner editor!

JOHN MILEWSKI, (fel­low AGW con­trib­u­tor). Hi John,

Many thanks for your kind words.

I too en­joy shoot­ing pis­tols, which is just an­other rea­son why I in­tend to do review more of them in the mag (and on video). That’s not the only rea­son though, I’ve had loads of emails and let­ters ask­ing for more pis­tol stuff.

I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to get­ting some proper pis­tol in­struc­tion, from some­one who is at the top of their game at present and I hope to con­vey some top tips and tech­niques to those who don’t al­ready know them. Have fun with the Glock – I know I did. Ed

You can look for­ward to more pis­tol ac­tion in fu­ture is­sues
