G&G Armament – A Quick Overview of Airsoft Guns by G&G Armament

Whenever you are out in the field in the middle of an airsoft exercise, it always pays to make sure that you have a piece of equipment that is going to deliver for you consistently. Whenever you choose something from the G&G Armament, you are sure to receive everything that you’re going to need. Here is a little bit about the G&G Armament of weaponry that you will find available from this company. Regardless of which of the guns you happen to choose, however, you’re sure to get quality and performance from g&g airsoft guns.

Who Are They

G&G has been in business for over 20 years, manufacturing airsoft guns and other equipment that makes them one of the industry leaders. They are focused on quality, both in the equipment that they deliver and for the quality of the customer service that they give to individuals who purchase from the G&G Armament. This makes it a clear choice, but there are are some specific guns that are available which we find to be some of the best that can be found.

Some Popular Guns They Make

For example, the G&G G96 Airsoft green gas/propane powered Sniper Rifle is a solid piece of equipment, that is a bit on the heavy side but most people tend to appreciate that in order to get a little bit more accuracy. The clip is capable of holding 15 rounds and fires them over 600 FPS, which is enough to lay down some serious cover fire for your teammates. As with most of the guns in the G&G armament, it is a combination of metal and ABS plastic. It’s an excellent choice for anybody that is going to be an air soft sniper, but keep in mind that it does not come with the gas. Gas is available optionally from your retailer, so make sure that you order yours at the same time as you order the G96.

They Even Make Great Guns For Beginners

Another good choice for use on the skirmish field is the G&G Combat Machine Series. These are excellent beginner guns from G&G and provide high rates of fire and velocities over 350 FPS and prices under $200. The combat machine series gives you the option of semi automatic and full automatic fire, along with some other included options which make it an excellent choice for beginner and intermediate airsofters ready to do battle.

Are You Up On All Of These Skateboarding Tricks?

Skateboarding is one of those sports where you need to learn and be able to do a lot of tricks or you just are not going to make it very far in the skateboarding industry. You need to be able to land all the tricks that you can do as well as execute them.

Aerials are the types of tricks you do on a half pip or a quarter pipe or maybe even a little kicker ramp so get high up in the air. You will want to get a lot of speed so you can hit a good transition and get off the wood and into the air. You will want to learn how to do these tricks on a half pipe or quarter pipe before you start trying to be a pro.

The Ollie is the first trick that anyone should learn when they are trying to learn to skateboard. You are going to have both of your feet not to far apart when you are setting up for this trick. You will have your back foot on the tail and your front foot slightly in the middle of the board or 4 inches before the screws in front of your front foot. This way you will have enough time to pop the deck and slide your front foot up to get the ollie down.

Flips tricks come as you get better you will want to try to flip the board after you have learned the Ollie. After you can Ollie about a foot or two you will want to try to start kicking your foot out when you slide your front foot forward. This way when you are doing your Ollie, you just slide your foot up and out to start learning flip tricks. After you have learned some of these you are probably getting pretty good.

You will do grabs whenever you do a big air on a half pipe or quarter pipe. All you do is get your air off the transition and then grab your board when you get air. It is the easiest trick to do because you are just in the air holding the board. There are grabs called indys, roastbeefs, stalefish, Japan air, there are all kinds of names for grab tricks when you are in the air. You just need to learn how to get air before you can even start learning these tricks. You can also do these tricks on a kicker or launch ramp.

The grind is another basic trick I think you just start on a mini half pipe and use the coping at the top which is the metal and you just try to grind and grind the metal with the trucks of your skateboard.

Slides are tricks which you use a metal rail to slide your skateboard across while still being on the skateboard and sliding on the rail. These tricks are going to be harder then you think and you might hurt yourself or at least fall several times before you try sliding wood on metal.

Carlos Sastre Wins the Tour De France

And the Tour de France has a new champion… The professional cyclist Carlos Sastre became last Sunday the third Spaniard to win one of the crown jewels in cycling — the Tour de France. This also became another great sports achievement for his country during the present year.

Sastre managed to win the 95th edition of the most well known cycling race in the world after competing without problems next to his squad during the last phase of the race, which consisted in a 143 kilometers stage in
?tampes.

Sastre’s victory continued the line of triumphs of his countrymen Oscar Pereiro in 2006 and Alberto Contador in the 2007. “It is a dream come true, I waited a lot of time before this,” expressed Sastre. The 33-years-old CSC racer obtained the yellow jersey after winning on Wednesday the 17th stage of the Tour, a section full of ascents in the Alps.

Astana team’s rider, Contador, was not able to participate in this year competition due to the doping scandals involving him as well as his team.

The Australian Cadel Evans ended second in the general classification, 58 seconds behind Sastre. Evans assured the victory on Saturday after resisting his pursuers against the clock, a very exciting last moment which paved the road to the Champs Elysee.

The Austrian Bernhard Kohl finished third,1:13 minutes behind the winner. He kept the white and red jersey along with the honors of being the best climber in the competition.

Close to the end of the last stage the Spaniard’s team began to fall behind while Sastre remained with the group of cyclist that were the closest to Evans and Kohl, suddenly Sastre began to gain a considerable advantage in general.

After the latest edition of the Tour de France, the incredible success of Spain during 2008 continues as another Spaniard Oscar Freire kept the green jersey, which is given to the racer of better action in sprints.

This Sunday’s victory is shared with the Danish Bjarne Riis, CSC general manager, who gave Sastre plenty of support and the leadership of the team instead of Frank and Andy Schleck. These two riders had to sacrifice their possibilities to help Sastre since he was the one with best chances to obtain the title. Anyhow, the Schleck brothers were given the white jersey which is an accomplishment to those young riders that excelled in the Tour.

Other cyclist, the Belgian Gert Steegmans of the Quick Step team, was the winner of the last race of the event in the final sprint, arriving before the Germans Gerald Ciolek and Freire. On the other hand, the Colombian Leonardo Duque closed his participation in Paris remaining in the last positions.

Additional matters regarding doping also struck this edition of Tour de France; the Spaniards Manuel Beltr?n and Moises Duenas Nevado as well as the Italian Riccardo Ricc?, tested positive for the prohibited substance EPO. The three riders withdrew from the competition as soon as they were advised of the latest results obtained from their blood samples. Likewise, the Kazakh Dmitriy Fofonov was the last of the cyclists in violating the anti-doping rules after testing positive right after the 18 stage of the Tour.
