Tell me about it man. I was told that the industry was looking for people like me when I started out my schooling and 7 years later no bites for careers in my specialization (or related areas) at all. It's looking like another 4 years for me at least. And I know that I would never cut it out in regular business, the only business I'd ever look to run is a consulting firm where I can tell clients to fuck off or find someone else to do it.

there seems to be a wealth of legal knowledge here and I would like to ask a question.
I am an unpaid volunteer that assists coaching a juniors (youth) air pistol program. would the recent SCC case affect the legality of air pistols (.177 cal). in any way (transport,storage exc) I am no lawyer but I really need to be as educated as I can be. when a youth asks me a question I want to make damn sure I have the right answer.
thank you in advance for any help.
I dunno about that dude. I'm not saying it's all gun owners but a great deal do seem like elitist pricks and in my experience it's especially the blackgun (AR) owners who are like "if you don't have ____ you're a noob" (and a great number of them are "preparing for a zombie attack" but also get winded walking up a flight of stairs). Other sub sports (competition, hunting, trap etc.) have their own "cultures" but it's mainly the blackgun owners that I seem to have problems with who seem to need to have dick measuring contests all the time and shit on others but that's just my experience.
As for the air pistol thing, keep doing what you're doing, AFAIK what you're doing is lawful use and if you're transporting with trigger locks and cases and all that's even better. Just so you know that I'm not talking out of my ass, I do have a background in Olympic style air rifle (never competed just did it recreationally).
