In these videos I go over the dis-assembly and reassembly of the slide of the Sig Sauer ATI / GSG 1911 22Lr pistol clone. Mainly a breakdown of the "bolt" and its components. Periodically you may need to clean the bolt assembly and this will help with the process. Additionally I will go over the firing pin safety or the "series 80" components and how to defeat them. Why defeat the firing pin safety? There is no real good reason other than to perhaps to "clean up" your trigger pull and lighten it. Sometimes these extra moving parts of the firing pin safety / Series 80, cause more friction with the additional moving parts. By eliminating them it can be possible to get a better trigger. But be warned, bypassing safety features such as this can void warranties and be dangerous. You can get upgraded parts for your Sig Sauer 1911 or GSG 1911-22 at our site www.GSGparts.com

Paradise Helicopters and AR15Target.com bring together Aerial Gunnery where shooters get to fly in an MD-500 Helicopter. For my experience I drove to Temple Texas and got to ride in the front of the Helicopter with the pilot for 15 minutes while another shooter sat in one of the rear seats and engaged steel targets while we flew. After 15 minutes had passed it was my turn to take the gunners seat. My son was lucky enough to take a spot in the front seat while I shot. A forth person occupied the other rear seat and served as a safety officer and kept a close eye on the shooter to keep everyone safe. Shooting from a moving vehicle is difficult. Shooting from a helicopter is very difficult. The difficulty is compounded with the anxiety of actually flying in a helicopter, dealing with wired communication, wind, rain, etc... It adds a level of stress that I have not ever encountered. BUT the fun factor is so worth it. Shooting in stressful situations shows your weaknesses for sure. As I always say, "get out of your comfort zone and do a shooting match sometime". You will find shortcomings you never knew you had.
