Land with a view

Rediscovered a hilly new development within a half hour’s drive from home. Perfect for shooting, with natural backstops. Perfect for home for a number of reasons. It’s on a breezy hill, with a view. Only three houses, with a fourth being constructed, and the spacing between houses is far apart enough to make good neighbours. A large water tank is on the hill, and even though it’s not painted in their colours, one can safely assume it belongs to the water authority (WASA).

There’s also a spring or river within a five minute walk, further uphill, according to a resident. That is to be verified. Wife and children love it.

My older son and I happened on the site one day, about three months ago. We were looking for a new, safe, semi-isolated spot to shoot. After shooting that morning, we questioned the owner of the house that was being built, and he told us that all the plots were sold and no one was wiling to re-sell theirs. We assumed he was being honest. Tried on at least four occasions to find our way back, simply to shoot again. No success. Through a process of driving around, turning into strange neighbourhoods, questioning local residents and sheer determination we finally found our ‘El Dorado’.

Yesterday evening it became apparent why we had such a difficult time finding it. The route is circuitous, with a few roads having no signs, and some even looking like dead ends from afar. I now have a map in my head and will never forget again.

A youth who lives in the area showed us two plots of land that were up for sale and seemed surprised that we were informed earlier that no land was available for sale. Investigations are continuing.

State game licenses in the bag

Got the necessary state game licenses this morning. Forestry division has got to computerize its’ operations. Hand writing every single application and license is archaic, labour-intensive, frustrating–to applicant and issuer alike-and a waste of time, energy, skill, paper and human resources. It is probably mind numbing to the employees of the division.


A major helicopter company called me today, confirming that my name would be placed on their list of responders in the event of an aviation disaster. Naturally I’m thrilled, but wish them a perfect safety record. I’m only on the secondary responders list, but that’s good enough. Having worked on four international airport disaster drills has helped prep me. I have also been called out to the scenes of numerous vehicular accidents, shootings and violent protests. Many involved fatalities.

Now if only I could convince them to provide me with an entire safety kit…


Saw Miss Universe 1998 Wendy Fitzwilliam at a function today. She is even more beautiful than when she won in 1998. One hopes that she has the ‘beauty longevity’ of Janelle ‘Penny’ Commissiong and Giselle La Ronde-West.

TSTT dialup too slow

Not posting as frequently as necessary, as TSTT dialup has been so slow recently, that some sites are not accessible. Awaiting a modem for the Blink broadband service. The TSTT rep said there’d be as much as a one month wait. We’ll see how that works out.

TSTT is owned by Cable & Wireless, GORTT and individual shareholders (through NEL). Bashing TSTT is no good for any citizen, as we all have a vested interest in making the entity successful. They’ve also got a rough deal because of TATT’s insistence that the ‘playing field be level’. Apparently TATT has made TSTT’s accommodations with respect to Digicel so onerous that the field is not level, but tilted in Digicel’s favour. You can do your own research on that. There’s also talk of a former TSTT manager who was asked to leave the company and is now a very senior TATT exec with an axe to grind.

Republic Day morning shoot

Shooting was ok yesterday. We managed to make a fairly mature bamboo collapse under it’s own weight after the onslaught of about 40 extra heavy 10.5 grain Baracuda pellets. It gave it’s life so that airgunners can have fun, and display creativity in target selection and acquisition.

Number one son asked to shoot a rifle. This was surprising, as he would only shoot my rifle if I insisted. Dave has a rifle with a black synthetic stock a.k.a. an Evil Black Rifle (EBR). Maybe in the eyes of a 12 year old boy, my wooden-stocked rifle is ‘old school’. Properly maintained, my rifle would still be taking down small game 90-100 years from now though. It’s a German engineered classic. Perhaps when he’s older and wiser, he’ll appreciate it. Especially when he realizes it was willed to his brother.

Gas price increases and pellets

Filled up at the pump the day after Budget reading and immediately felt the new gas price at the pump. Ouch. Must consult mechanic to determine whether a switch from ‘premium’ to ‘super’ would have any adverse effects on the car. The gas station owner recommended the switch along with a bi-monthly dose of fuel injector cleaner.

Bought some pellets today. The much-touted, extra heavy Diabolo Baracuda. A couple tins to start the hunting season. The dealers prices range from $108 to $300 per tin. Having a few thousand pellets feels good. Especially since the prices of most consumables keep increasing almost monthly. Perhaps the local iron and steel industry can look at producing pellets for local and regional markets.
Happy Republic Day to all. I’ll celebrate by taking my family shooting this morning. After a hearty breakfast, a couple hundred pellets downrange can work wonders for the soul.

Crime plan suggestions

A few suggestions to reduce crime dramatically in this country.

Mandatory national military service for those over 18. Maybe 12-18 months. If at university, or in sixth form, then it’s deferred until graduation, but before age 26.
Mandatory ‘boys club’ training from form one. This will include marching, gun training (air guns will be both cheaper and safer), hiking, camping, patrolling and all the other skills that go with these activities.
Forming a committed, carefully selected team of police officers, special prosecutors, military intelligence officers (and other capable ‘snoops’) into a unit that will gather intel, analyze, investigate (and use ‘sting’ ops) and aggressively prosecute corrupt police officers. This unit should only be seen as temporary, with some sort of sunset clause in their mandate. Once the police service is clean again, they should either cease to operate or be directed to clean up other services.
Allow all Assistant Police Commissioners to issue firearms licenses.
Issue firearms to any citizen who applies, with the following provisos:
Must own land (or live in parents self-owned home)
Must not have any convictions for violent crime (someone who passed a bad cheque should still be allowed to defend themselves)
Must undergo a psychiatric evaluation
Must pass a gun competency training course
Spouse/adult SO must agree to allow ownership
Must shoot at an approved range at least once per quarter (every three months)
FULs renewed once every five years.
FUL holders should be allowed to keep up to 1,000 rounds of ammo, per gun.
More training and licensing of gunsmiths, with at least 12 per county.
More licensing of gun dealers.
The drafting and speedy passing of ‘Castle Doctrine’ laws. These laws will allow homeowners/landowners to use deadly force, if necessary to protect themselves, their loved ones and visitors and also their property. Police officers will no longer automatically be able to treat legal gun owners like common criminals for doing the right thing (protecting loved ones from heartless criminal rapists, kidnappers and murderers).
Have the HDC build outdoor 25m and 50m ranges in all of their new developments. This can be as simple as having a tractor push dirt up to form the backstop, with a long shed, and a small locked unit for storage of targets, tables, benches, etc.

Villages, and counties can compete a la Best Village competitions. We’ll not only have skilled dancers, singers, dramatists, comedians and playwrights. But also skilled, disciplined shooters, coaches and trainers that the country can call on should Venezuela, Colombia or Barbados ever decide to invade us.

These same citizens can be organized into volunteer, regional citizen corps to aid emergency workers before, during and after any disaster. This can done under the supervision of the ODPM or a new purpose built entity. They can also be networked into neighbourhood watch groups with teeth.

Since the majority of younger citizens will be properly trained and supervised in the correct use and safe handling of guns, the curiousity factor will have been appeased. Our youth will therefore have no excuse for handling illegal guns.

Because so many citizens will be properly trained and armed, the playing field will be level, with citizens finally having a fighting chance against the violent predatory criminals. Bandits, unsure about who is armed and who isn’t will be much less bold in their ‘trade of choice’, with many opting to seek other trades with longer term prospects (the wages of sin is death).

Of course, I don’t have all the answers. But please don’t be in denial about our present violent crime situation. Don’t give the same pat excuses that it’s a world problem; more guns means more crime; the government through the Ministry of National Security is spending many millions more, and have plans to eradicate crime, etc.

If we keep doing what we’ve always done (restricting legal gun ownership, while allowing-through omission or commission-illegal guns to enter and be used to kill citizens then we’ll always get what we always got–more crime, more citizen insecurity, bolder criminals, younger criminals, richer lawyers, poorer law-abiding citizens, longer periods for trials to begin, shorter lifespans and eventually chaos and anarchy.

Professor John Lott, in his book “More Guns Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws” has shown that violent crime is significantly lower in counties (he analyzed data from all 50 US states) that has less restrictive gun ownership laws and higher in counties with more restrictive laws.

Mahatma Gandhi, that Indian icon of peace has this to say about owning guns:
"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."

-- Mohandas Gandhi, An Autobiography, pg 446

Who am I to argue with Gandhi?

Even Jesus teaches that it is wise to be armed, in Luke 22:35-36:

"Then Jesus asked them, 'When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?' 'Nothing,' they answered. He said to them, 'But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

Sell your cloak and buy a sword. Advice from gentle Jesus, meek and mild.

Who am I to argue with Jesus?

James Wesley, Rawles, blogger extraordinaire of www.survivalblog.com while listing the precepts of his survivalist philosophy reminds us that in the absence of law and order, men become barbarians almost overnight, and we should always have lethal means at our disposal to repel attacks on our loved ones:

“Civilization is Just a Thin Veneer.
In the absence of law and order, men quickly revert to savagery. As was illustrated by the rioting and looting that accompanied disasters in the past three decades, the transition from tranquility to absolute barbarism can occur overnight. People expect tomorrow to be just like today, and they act accordingly. But then comes a unpredictable disaster that catches the vast majority unprepared. The average American family has four days worth of food on hand. When that food is gone, we'll soon see the thin veneer stripped away.

Show Restraint, But Always Have Recourse to Lethal Force.
My father often told me, "It is better to have a gun and not need it, than need a gun, and not have it." I urge readers to use less than lethal means when safe and practicable, but at times there is not a satisfactory substitute for well-aimed lead going down range at high velocity.”

Who am I to argue with the venerable J W Rawles?

Budget Day

Today the 2008-2009 Appropriation Bill will be read in Parliament. For the first time in our nation’s history it will be introduced by a woman; Finance Minister Karen Nunez-Tescheira. AirgunsTT congratulates Minister Nunez-Tescheira, and wishes her well in her first Budget reading.

We’d also like to draw her attention to the high cost of airguns and related expenses. One glaring example comes to mind. A spare magazine for the 15 shot FX Revolution cost US$20-30 retail in the US, but is sold here for TT$1,000! The dealer has expenses such as sales tax, shipping, 40% customs duty etc., but even with the most liberal calculations, and allowing for a 100% profit, this should still be sold for less than $700. But that’s for another post. Hopefully, we can alert Madam Minister about our plight, so that she can alleviate some of the strain that T&T airgunners feel in the 2009-2010 budget.

We’d also like to invite her to join us on the range any day she feels like. We promise her that if she hasn’t yet shot airguns, she’d love it. We have seen numerous hoplophobes become shooters after only a couple minutes of safety instructions followed by a few minutes of target shooting. Yes, air gun shooting is fun, indeed. That’s the main reason we do it. The fun factor.

While on subject, we have seriously archaic laws drafted in the stone age regarding airguns. Will the Minister of National Security please look at these laws again? Most airgun manufacturers around the world no longer produce smooth bore airguns. Some suggested relevant changes:

1. Allow present (and future) airgunners to own rifled airguns.
2. Allow present (and future) airgunners to own .22 airguns.
3. Allow present (and future) airgunners to own multiple airguns.
4. Allow present (and future) airgunners to keep tools, spare parts, equipment and supplies necessary for maintenance of the guns we own.
5. Allow present (and future) airgunners to set up workshops, courses to produce airgunsmiths.
6. Give tax relief to airgunners where possible, especially for hardware and training.
7. Have the Planning Ministry incorporate airgun ranges in all new HDC and other planned communities.
8. Introduce airgunning to Form One students at all secondary schools, perhaps with MILAT involvement.
9. Encourage local steel industry to look at the manufacture of pellets for local and regional sales. As far as we know, there is no competition here, and it is an opportunity to be a foreign exchange earner. Perhaps IAC (International Airgunning Centre)? Why not? At least regional! We have experienced shooters (even Olympic level), coaches, shooting administrators, technical persons. Leverage this resource.

Happy Budget Day. Happy Republic Day.

Backyard shooting fun

Today, Kev, Dave and I had some fun backyard shooting. Dave brought paper targets and we shot to our hearts content. Finally shot some of the much touted ‘Baracuda’ pellets. It’s fairly heavy (10.5 gr) and suitable for our powerful rifles (the ads hype quote 1250 fps). Liked them enough to immediately buy a tin of 500 and stashed them away in my preps. Dave was kind enough to sell me from his stash. The paper targets were used to zero the rifles.

Dave shot 2 birds, 1 zandolee, 1 Julie mango (at the stem) 2 coins, 2 plastic bottle covers and a number of baby oranges. One of those birds was a pigeon shot from about +100 metres away. I admire both his speed and accuracy. He even skinned and gutted the birds for our education. There’s no doubt that in a grid-down disaster situation, he’ll be able to survive on his own by stocking the larder with game. He’ll also be an asset to any group that can use those skills. Fortunately the man lives merely a few blocks from me. A pharm tech in training, he hunts, fishes and yes, shoots air guns.

Between the 3 of us we shot about 100-120 pellets.

Beach, bake and shark, flooding

The beach was great yesterday. Warm water, with very few people. The recently bought Frisbee provided fun and exercise. The ladies had their bakes and shark, with copious amounts of mango chutney, shadon beni sauce, tomatoes, cucumbers, pineapple slices, curried mango, garlic sauce, lettuce and shredded cabbage from the famous Richards Bake and Shark.

On our return journey, we attempted to pass through Santa Cruz, but were turned back by rising flood waters on the Santa Cruz Main Road. Through Maraval we encountered a similar challenge just at the WASA water treatment plant opposite Hilsboro. A truck stalled in the water, with drivers of high-clearance vehicles such as SUVs and brand new pickups choosing to wait out the flood. That caused a 25-30 minute delay while flood waters receded.

We arrived home around 3 pm, tired, but happy.

Backyard air gun shooting

Went to our friends home yesterday evening and had some shooting fun. We didn’t bring any paper targets so we improvised. Beer bottles, tiles, metal paint cans, clay blocks, old oil plastic bottles. Set them at 44 ft on top of an old drum, with a corrugated metal sheet as backing and concrete wall as backstop. The only non-fun was cleaning up broken beer bottles afterwards.

Both husband and wife carry firearms in their daily life, but only get range practice once a year. Shooting air guns in their own backyard was a welcome fun practice session. After shooting we picked oranges and soursop buds. I had the buds as my nightcap and slept like a baby.

We plan to go to the beach today, and the wives indicated they both want bake and shark. Maybe we can squeeze in some ‘air time’…

Preps, pride

Bought some preps last week. Toothbrushes, chess sets, measuring tape, a bale of toilet paper and a Frisbee. Keeping family morale high during an emergency is almost as important as beans, bullets & bandaids. Games are excellent for this reason. The toothbrushes will go in the charity kit. Measuring tape goes in the tool kit, and you can never have too much TP. Especially if it’s less than $75 for 40 rolls.

AirGunsTT congratulates our returning Olympic athletes and wishes them, their families and coaches the very best. Being a blog that’s ostensibly about air guns, we’d like to especially thank our sole Olympic air pistol athlete, Roger Daniel, for representing us on the world stage, and wish him the best in the COPA 2008 in Santo Domingo this week.

Completed will

Finally finished my will. It took several months, and some hard decisions, but it’s finally complete. Now to print, sign, witness and distribute…

After reading about the senior police officer who shot the pastor to death over a love triangle, I wondered if the pastor had prepared a will. Or will his family members and relatives be left to do difficult searches, seek expensive legal help (letters of administration cost thousands), and even fight amongst themselves?

Begin that process today. Don’t die intestate. Leaving your loved ones without clear instructions as to how you’d like your estate divided among them is thoughtless and shortsighted.

Gold Reserves

Read recently that TnT has 1.9 tonnes of gold reserves which represents .7% of our entire reserves. Interesting. Our neigbour Venezuela holds 33.3% of it’s reserves in gold. Even more interesting is that Suriname holds less gold reserves than us (1.4 tonnes), though they are a gold producing country.

Gun Storage

A humid climate dictates extreme vigilance for gun storage. Here is general guidance:

1.) Clean thoroughly, lubricate heavily, and inspect frequently.
2.) If storing guns in a vault or a wall cache, invest in a Golden Rod dehumidifier. But don't expect it to be a miracle panacea. Mark your calendar with reminders for monthly inspections!
3.) Never, ever use a muzzle cap for more than an hour or two. They are for use in the field, not for storage!
4.) R.I.G., silica gel, and and VCI paper are your friends.
5.) If you use grease or a heavy coating of oil in a gun bore and/or its chamber, then be sure to tag the gun with a prominent reminder to yourself to remove the grease it before firing. (Not doing so can be a safety hazard!)
5.) Do NOT use oxygen absorbing packets for gun storage! These are designed specifically to kill insect larvae in stored food. These packets use a chemical reaction of moisture, salt, and ferric oxide (rust!) to consume the oxygen in a confined space. These packets can be bad news for stored guns. Instead, silica gel is recommend to prevent rust. Silica gel packets also have the advantage that they can be re-used many times if you dry them out in an oven or a dehydrator overnight. (Since they employ a chemical reduction process, oxygen absorbing packets can only be used once.)

Hunters Club AGM

The hunters club AGM ran over three hours with around 100 members attending. A new executive was elected. The incumbent president was immediately re-nominated, but declined, citing over 25 years of presidency has left him yearning for the burden of leadership to be lifted. Even temporarily.

Issues addressed during the meeting were:
- dogs stolen from hunters and sold “down the main” (Venezuela)
- hunting during ‘exercise only’ period
- hunting during closed season, by poachers
- the benefits of microchipping dogs
- rumour of new policy of all firearms to be taken to Forensic Science lab to tested, with results entered into a ballistics database
- Honorary Game Wardens haven’t been paid their stipend for months. A bureaucratic anomaly that occurred because Forestry Division was removed from Environment Ministry and placed in Agriculture Ministry, but Environment retained the budgeted funds meant for stipends
- the annual uncertainty of whether hunting season will be opened
- the possibility of forest patrols with hunters, game wardens and police officers।

Food Sale at National Flour Mills

Bought some food at National Flour Mills sale last week. They had some really good prices: one dozen (1 litre) juices = $60, 1 dozen (250 ml) juices = $16, six tins sardines = $18, three boxes (340 gm) cereals = $35. The cost is about one third to half of average supermarket prices. My gratitude to National Flour Mills on this initiative, especially so close to the opening of the school year.

I suggest you buy as much as you can afford, putting some away for emergencies, and charity. Yes, give some to that poor, single-parent family in your neighbourhood. If you don’t know that family, then ask at the hairdressers, or the barbers. They’ll know.

Hunters club meeting

Going to a hunters club meeting tonight. It’s also their AGM and I hope they will allow me to join. Hunting skills would be quite handy and valuable. I’m told it’s also a lot of fun. A fun skill that puts food on the table? Sounds good to me. Though I suspect it will be more challenging with air guns. The president is Kenneth Noriega, a 72 year old semi-retired auto mechanic, avid hunter and former forestry officer.

I found out today that hunters usually fall into three groups: dog runners, trappers and sentries. Sentries usually cut branches or the trunks of young trees and tie them with ropes into trees. These contraptions are called ‘scaffolding’ and the hunters/sentries sit on them, waiting patiently for hours on end for the game to approach a feeding site.

TT Coast Guard Commissioning Ceremony photo

The Coast Guard parade at Staubles Bay



Attended the TT Coast Guard 46th anniversary commissioning ceremony. Unquestionably one of the best events on the national calendar. The military parade was tight and precise. The speeches were short, appropriate and bearable (wife commented that henceforth all speakers should be at a podium placed in the open air, in direct sunlight, to elicit brevity).

The operations display by the Special Naval Unit was a scenario of a woman kidnapped at a function in the company of her bodyguard. Her minder and several bystanders were shot during the snatch, with a CG medical team taking them away on stretchers. She was whisked away in a small boat, and quickly transferred to a larger boat. The SNU’s response was rapid and overwhelming. They used two tactical five-man units arriving in inflatable speedy craft. One unit rescued the hostage on the larger vessel, while the other apprehended the kidnappers on the smaller. An Air Guard helicopter provided support, intelligence and overwatch while two TT Police Service vehicles arrived to take the bad guys away to justice. Some in attendance wondered aloud about the uncharacteristic speed of the police, making suggestions that perhaps it was TTCG personnel disguised in Police uniform and vehicles.

An old WW2 3.5 inch anti aircraft gun was so loud when fired (even with a one quarter charge) that many unprepared guests were left gasping, with Guardsmen smiling knowingly at each other.

The atmosphere and ambience was unusual; spotlessly clean, almost clinical surroundings on a military base at the waters edge, with not a sign of camouflage BDUs. Coast Guard ships anchored at the jetty with a beautiful sunset on the horizon. Yet the top military brass and other security experts mixed quite easily and informally with the civilians present. Even though career military persons tend to be sombre, humourless types, the after-parade reception was replete with jokes, banter and raucous laughter.

The food and service were both of such a high standard that even though I attend numerous functions quite regularly I could not remember the last time I had a mix of such well prepared, tasty and nutritious food and drink (they even had coconut water and Supligen) served by such helpful, courteous and attentive serving staff.

The pride felt and openly expressed by civilian guests was heartening and unusual as the general public is usually wont to criticize the protective services, sometimes with good reason. The skills, professionalism and attention to detail displayed, coupled with the historic loyalty for which TTCG is known (remember 1970?) makes me feel both proud and (I never thought I’d say this) secure as a citizen of this fine nation. Maybe Acting Commissioner Philbert, who was present, could have the TTCG train some of his officers. One would also hope that Minister Joseph wasn’t merely espousing platitudes when he praised the TTCG and announced planned increases in resources for them.

In attendance were the Minister of National Security, Sen Martin Joseph, Minister of State in the Ministry of National Security, Donna Cox, Chief of Defence Staff Brig Edmund Dillon, Commanding Officer of the TTR, Col Maundy, head of the SAUTT, Brig Peter Joseph, Commanding Officer of the TT Air Guard, Group Capt Moore, Acting Police Commissioner James Philbert and many former senior military officers including Brig Carl Alfonso, Rear Admiral Kelshall, Commodore Franklyn (presently IMA exec dir).

I unreservedly congratulate the Commanding Officer, Captain J Ramoutar and the Executive Officer, Commander K Huggins and all ranks of the TT Coast Guard.

Welcome to AirgunsTT. We are a Trinidad and Tobago based community of airgun shooters. Coming from diverse backgrounds, we have one thing in common: we enjoy shooting airguns.

This blog is an attempt to chronicle our fun filled weekends. Hopefully it will also be a meeting point to share knowledge and experiences between beginners and veteran shooters alike.
