That’s a cool as hell grandma, i would totally support her love for shooting if she were part of my family :slight_smile:

Also those sharpshooting guns seem to be using a really small caliber. I guess it makes shooting much more pleasant when you don’t want to shoot something that has much more kick.

Nice, old school bullseye one-handed shooting.

Those are technically air pistols that shoot pellets, but they aren’t your father’s Daisy Red Ryder. They START around $1500 and up to $3000 or more and then one can add even more $$$ to customize. Steyr and Anshutz are two popular brands.

Ah thanks for the info. I would assume using air rifle/guns would be to get around restrictions that might come with gun laws.

I basically just made this woman as my new character for our 7th Sea game. Only mine’s a Russian grandma.

What kind of pistols are those? They look air propelled, maybe?


#10

Either air gun or laser.

Some searching online shows her using various types of compressed gas pistols and rifles. According to Wikipedia, India is pretty strict about access to firearms, so it seems unlikely that there are clubs for teens and retirees with powder-based pistols.

This is a dupe. On the other thread:
