ASP Red Guns
« on: December 16, 2004, 10:15:16 AM »

Hi,

Anybody know of a place to buy ASP Red Guns without paying $140 each. I think they would be great Dos Manos training aids...but I refuse to pay that much. Wholesale maybe?

Thanks

These are blue and much cheaper.  I have the 19 and it works well with my Kydex for training.

Blue guns and ASP guns are about the same price.   Aahlersmeyer is looking at the long guns......

Yeah...I think they just might have to be a "one at a time" purchase. They're just too expensive, when students can just use sticks instead. (non revenue generating) I believe is the term.

If I'm gonna pay $140-$160 dollars for a "rubber" gun...I might as well go to the pawn shop and buy real ones for these guys to beat the Hell out of!

I remember I&I Sports in Carson City had a barrel of rubber guns for about $5 each. That was a few years ago though. This last weekend I was in theior branch store and west LA and ...no rubber guns.

But these rubber guns can be found and work quite well sometimes.

I also enjoy the wooden rubber band guns, because in a pinch you can actually shoot something "as a lesson learned."

But these wooden guns do break when ground fighting or when grappling over them gets a little heated.

Yeah, I was thinking about the wooden guns, but came to the same conclusion Hock.

I'll try I & I. Thanks.

I wonder if a whittled axe handle would make a decent (cheap) training gun.  I haven't tried it, but I am now curious what I could do with some wood working tools and an axe handle.  That might solve the twin problems of cheap and sturdy.

A long dos manos stick work well for most.   It's the cheapest option.

I have used 3/4 inch plywood and used a scroll saw to cut it to shape. Handguns last forever, and I have only seen one longun break in 13 years of training. BUT, I used really high-dollar plywood...

Sounds cool, yet very time consuming. I don't have that kinda time. But I would like to see what you come up with.

Blue Guns are actually better made and more detailed, and you can find a few dealers online that offer them somewhat cheaper than the Red Guns.

Rings-Blue guns are very brittle compared with the ASP Red guns. I have seen a couple of long guns made by Rings break during long gun weapons retention courses. Just my 2 cents
