Interesting story.. sounds liek you had a good convo with her..
On a side note.. if she thinks a TM Sig P226 wieghs as much as the real steel, she obviously has really bad wieght judgment. I thought, first off, that OPP used SIG P228's as I could swear that is what OPP back home (peterborough county) use, and I have handled thier issue and its significantly heavier.. same with a real steel glock and a full metal airsoft... no comparison.. I found they dont even look the same as the slides look very different even from numerous feet away..
anyhoo, enough of my critique.. always good to hear another responsible player promoting proper storage and handling of the equipment.. keep it up
