The Ultimate Tactical Training Revolver
Umarex S&W Model 327 TRR8 .177 Caliber
By Dennis Adler
Shooting air pistols for sport is a big part of the Airgun Experience, but there is another side that I often stress, and that is using authentic 1.77 caliber airguns for real world training. By authentic I mean airguns that are nearly exact in design, operation and handing to their cartridge-firing counterparts. These airguns have to be good enough to use for firearms training purposes such as reloading drills, target acquisition exercises, holster carry and drawing, and all the various regimens used for basic firearms training, whether for civilian carry or law enforcement. Learning the basics with zero-recoil airguns allows initial firearms familiarization at a cost that is just a fraction of training with “real” guns, and make no mistake, high quality BB cartridge-loading revolvers like the Umarex S&W licensed Model 327 TRR8, look and feel just as “real” right up to the point where you pull the trigger!
