My travel agent had a co-op travel agent over from Odessa, Ukraine. I mentioned that I have looked at some of the programs where you can go fly Russian aircraft and how expensive it was. I also told her I was a gun collector. She said a lot of the programs were a rip after the American companies added their cut into the deal and she would send me the prices. She sent me the aircraft pricelist and a another program for firing weapons at the military firing range. The small arms prices are expensive (I guess if you are Japanese and have no way to shoot this is a way to do it) but the larger weapons were interesting- I can forward you her info if your dying to go blasting away. Maybe we can get a ARFCOM group buy together and go throw grenades and shoot RPG's
I copied out of a word doc- sucks, sorry.

This stuff's been going on since the wall came down.
Originally, it was Former Soviet Republic / client states doing this.
Now mother Russia, eh???
not at these prices on the aircraft side. It usually about double the cost.
i might do the RPG if it was local, but flying to russia just to shoot a gun is a bit out of the question
The tank prices dont seem too bad for 4km....
Compared to the price of firing the rifles.
Hell I put a belt through an RPD for way less than in would cost there
No, you order the "combo platter" and bring back a wife.
Dont think that would go over well
Please e-mail me the contact for that firm in Odessa. I'm gonna be in the neighborhood and now have something I wanna do on the weekends. (Yes I am completely serious)
ok I ll get the details for ya. Post pics...
I think I can beat the A/C prices, just have to check.
PPSH 41 sub machine gun = $1.00 for one shot
I hope they let you fire off a 35 round magazine in a burst for $35 ?
because it wouldnt be any fun if you could only fire one shot at a time
Crapola, I'll have to hit it up another time, my travel is taking me elsewhere. Got anything in the Balkans?
Looks like the short supply and cost of 7.92x39 and 5.45x39 is affecting everyone these days.
And you wonder why those things are every where in the world.
What does a LAW, SMAW, or AT-4 cost?
Yeah but the Russian women are an added bonus
If I was ever in the area I just might have to blow some greenbacks
ETA: I just remembered that my best friend's wife is russian, she told me before I deployed that I should take a trip with my buddy and her to russia
Dont get confused, I have two best friends, my all time bro is in the states, Dustin. My other best friend is my overseas best friend, Jose keeps me sain in Germany.
