LoL, MJ. He's just trying to say that most people that use the term "Tactical" nowadays are just dorks with airsoft guns who want to look like badasses.
The .22 Rifles that are in this class are for exactly as you put it, a "training aid" or for people familiar and in love with their AR-15/556 Platforms that just want something cheaper to shoot that operates like their beloved gun.
"Tacticools" as you put it wont buy these, for any number of reasons, they usually live in a city where they can't walk outside their front doors and pop off a few.
The other reason is even more stupid than the first, they can't shoot people with them, Why spend 600 bucks on a gun they wont hardly ever use when they can dump 250 on an Airsoft gun and then shoot their friend in the ass with it.
I am not a mall ninja, a person in training, or anything other than someone that likes military rifles but not the cost of the ammo....I have a Colt AR 15 5.56x45 and two 7.62x39 AK 47s, but having the 22 cal versions is not only cheaper, but my grand kids like shooting them without the recoil of the real thing.
I also have a M-14 7.62x51.....M 1 Carbine 30 cal.......M 1 Garrand 30 06 and other rifles and pistols.
