one other thing. never point and fire a gun with blanks with or without a bfa at another person. thats how bruce lee's kid died. leave that to the idiots in helliwood

I have a bunch of blanks for my AR, and like whats already been said, the bolt will not cycle without a "bfa"
I dont have a bfa so i have to manually charge the rifle every shot

Just hold your finger over the opening of the barrel. It'll save you a couple bucks.

Some of my engineer buddies did. You can basically make it yourself with a primed case and some paraffin wax

When i was on SRT with the prison we did some tac training with the Tulsa SWAT at their training facility "Cobra House". We were doing building entries and the instructer would play the bad guy, and he was using a .38 with simunition. It stings pretty good

I actually had a scar from one for a while. It caught me at just the right angle to leave a cool half moon scar. Yeah, they're way worse than paintballs.

It almost made me pee my pants.

There I was... We were doing urban training w/ simunitions on a nice crisp Drum morning. I hate gloves therefore I had non on. We were moving up a stairwell when we took fire. I took a round to the exposed/ frozen pinky on my trigger hand. I seriously wanted to pee my pants.

One guy was shot in the eye while wipeing the moisture off the inside of his mask. He went on restriction and rode out the better part of a year and a half in the S-Shop pushing paper.

It was fun as hell though and would like to do it again.
