Well the Shipping Container Office and Airgun Shooting Range is finally all ready to use and so for this first ever airguns shooting video in it, I simply wanted to try out a couple of airguns and see how this new setup worked. I also wanted to play around with some camera position setup to see how it all looked and if there will be any additional lighting or placement considerations.
In this video I do a walk around to show off the new completed Shipping Container setup and then I shoot my 6.75 inch barreled Umarex Colt Single Action Army SAA Pellet Revolver followed by my ASG X9 Classic Beretta M9 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol.
Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistol. Manufacturer: KWC - Distributed by Cybergun. Model: Colt 1911 M45A1. Materials: Almost all metal. Weight: 2 pounds (907 grams). Barrel: Metal non-rifled. Propulsion: CO2 x 1. Action: Semi auto blowback, single action only. Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 17 round full size metal magazine. FPS: 340+ using .20 gram BB's.
I have always been a big fan of the KWC line of full blowback airguns and this one is no exception. It's kind of interesting that KWC does not seem to make there own blinded out versions of these guns and that a company like Cybergun is distributing them? They do look really great and this entire line with all the variations and new models will for sure keep selling these airguns. And they don't just come in Airsoft versions, I will also be taking a look at some similar 4.5mm Steel BB KWC made airguns shortly!
I got a lot done this week in the Shipping Container Project Office and Airgun Shooting Range. Finished up all the drywall office mudding, I primed and painted the the office, connected up all the electrical and office lighting and installed the hardwood and baseboard along with the trimming. All that's left in the office is some caulking, paint touchup and then I have to figure out how I'm going to finish up the shooting hole? I do have some ideas for it though...
Next week I will be working on these odds and ends and hopefully may even get the shooting range spray foam insulted?
About three weeks ago I started the interior construction of the Shipping Container Project. So far I have cut out the window and door, framed the office in, installed the window and door, done some preliminary painting, wired in electricity for the entire unit, added an internet line, run underground wiring to the main house, installed insulation and vapor barrier and last but not least, added the drywall. I would have to say the worst is over and now I look forward to more of the finishing work like painting, flooring, connecting the electrical plugs and lighting fixtures.
The only real big jobs left to do would be painting the outside of the Sea Can and spray foam insulating the shooting range area but the spray foaming I will be contracting out and getting it done professionally so that part will be easy at least!

Yup, another Shipping Container Project Update Video! For those of you interested in this project I am sure you have been waiting with baited breath ;) And for those wanting more airgun videos you are probably wondering when I will resume making more... Heck, I'm with you on that one, this manual labour stuff is way harder than making airgun videos, but it is all for the greater good. I will try and slip in some airgun related videos before this Shipping Container Project is finished, that's almost a promise!!!
At this point I am almost ready for drywall, all the electrical is completed including running the power and Internetunderground to the poorhouse and main house. I need to have my Internets at full jam, that's a must!
This week I will be getting the electirfcal all hooked up to the main box, adding isulation and vapour barrier, some more window baar cleanup and painting and by end of the week I hope to have the drywall in place along with the taping and first layer of mud.
Oh yah, this video also includes a huge bonfire, every spring and fall we usually burn all the fallen branches and yard debris, everyone comes out and enjoys the huge fire :)
The Shipping Container Project is moving along nicely, this past week I finished up my office area framing, I also got the door and window cutout and installed! Next up on my list is cleaning up and painting the window bars so I can make the unit a bit more secure. I suppose I will have to do the same with the metal door since it is in dire need of a facelift. Once the doors and windows are all taken care of I will be moving on to the electrical and wiring. My goal is to get all of this done by end of week... The sooner I get this Shipping Container Project donethe sooner I can get back to making even better and more consistent airgun videos in my new home.
This week I started framing in my new office and in this video I show the wall closest to the airgun range where the door and shooting opening are situated. I managed to frame the back wall in too. I also talk about how much time it takes even before you pick up a drill or hammer simply planning everything out and acquiring all the supplies required for a project like this. I have spent a ton of time researching what I need to make this Shipping Container Project into the vision I have for it. Spoiler alert, in my next video the framing is all done including the installation of my window and outside door, glad that part is over!
Type: Pellet air revolver. Distributed by: UmarexUSA. Model: Single Action Army Revolver with Colt licensing Materials: Mostly metal with plastic grips. Weight: 2.35 pounds (1070 grams). Barrel: 6.75 inches rifled. Propulsion: 12 gram CO2. Action: Revolver, single action only. Ammunition Type: .177 cal. pellets. Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds. FPS: 380.
This is my full table top review where I show you around the Umarex Colt Single Action Army Nickel & Gold Pellet Shell Loading Revolver. I also compare it to the shorter barreled Umarex SAA revolver.
We have pretty much established that these Umarex Colt Single Action Army pistols are fantastic airgun copies of the old west real steel 6 shooters in pretty much every way. For this reason they have been super popular! The Umarex Colt Single Action Army Nickel & Gold Pellet Revolver is yet another rendition of this same airgun but with a longer barrel and the tow tone Gold and Nickel finish. You will pay a bunch more for the longer barrel and two tone finish, is it worth it? If your on a budget perhaps not but if you want something that really stands out and may even perform just a little better than pony up the extra bucks and pick one of these beauties up.
Lately I have been doing a lot of sourcing out figuring out how everything is going to be laid out, what kind of lighting I want to use, how am I going to heat the office area in my shipping container. I want to keep everything pretty low power so my plan is to go with all LED lighting and a 400 Watt heater which should be
fine in my 90 square foot insulated office space. I plan to blast the shooting range with some propane heat on days when I need it for the shooting testing during the colder months.
I did pickup some hardwood flooring pretty cheap at Big Box Store and also got my 3x6 office window from Surrey New and Used. I already have metal doors that my father-in-law has had stashed away for several decades but at least now they are going to come in handy.
The first job or actual work I needed to do on the Shipping Container Project was to level and place the Sea Can onto some bricks/slabs, this also helps to keep the underside dry so it does not rust out. There shouldn't be much settling since the storage container is resting on my gravel parking area and the gravel goes right down about 1 foot deep to the hard pan.
Next on my list is starting the framing, figuring out exactly where the windows and doors will be and of course cutting the container to fit them.
This YouTube video will be a little different than most, sorry no shooting and not even a single gun to show anywhere in this video! But it will lead to hopefully better shooting field test and table top videos down the road as I will have a dedicated space not only to work but to also shoot my review airguns.
Today, well actually yesterday a 40 foot shipping container (Sea Can) showed up at my house. This new metal box is going to be my airgun shooting range and office space combined. It will contain a 30 foot airgun shooting range closest to the rear doors so that I can open them and create a longer range if necessary. The front 10-12 feet of the container will be my work office space where. I will also use some of the container for storage.
Over the next few weeks I will be leveling the container, framing and insulating the office area, adding some electricity and lighting and of course completing some finishing work to the office space to make it more cozy. Eventually I hope to do some outside work giving the container some more curb appeal with a new coat of paint.
I plan to make more videos to share with everyone of the work progress as it happens so keep watching...
Type: Blowback Airsoft Pistol. Manufacturer: KJWORKS Distributed by ASG Model: X9 Classic Materials: Metal slide & frame. Weight: 2.1 pounds (950 grams). Barrel: Metal non-rifled smooth bore. Propulsion: 12 gram CO2. Action: Blowback, single and double action. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 16 rounds. FPS: 312+ fps.
There are very few 4.5mm Steel BB guns made by KJWorks and it seems that ASG as far as I know is the only distributer that has teamed up with KJWork to have them make some of their guns, I reviewed the ASG CZ 75 which is another ASG/KJWorks distributer 4.5mm CO2 Blowback Pistol. I don't even think you can get the 4.5mm Steel BB shooting version direct from KJWork? What I love most of all about the ASG X9 Classic Beretta M9 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol is that it is made by KJWorks since there are already a lot of Beretta M9's and Mod. 92's already out there but if I could only have one it would probably be the ASG X9 Classsic!
I have some new guns for everyone to checkout which is always good for everyone, especially me :)
In this update video I show you around three pistols one Arisoft Rifle. With the pistols we have a mixed bag of Pellet, steel BB and plastic Airsoft. First off I take a look at the ASG X9 Classis Beretta M9 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB pistol, which by the way is actually made by KJWorks so we know this it's going to be a quality gun! I then switch things up and showoff the new long barrel CO2 powered Umarex Colt Peacemaker SAA pellet revolver that sports a Nickel and Gold finish. Last for the pistols we take a look at the 6mm Airsoft firing Colt 1911 Rail Gun in the Dark Earth finish, it's basically a KWC 1911 but with a little extra bling.
Last but now least to show you in this update video is the ASG CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1. This product was developed by ASG in cooperation with CZ and is made to give the Airsoft Player the closest shooting experience they can possibly get to handling and shooting a real CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1!
