Russ has been banned.”   by owner and host of Target Talk.com

  2007 USAS National Finalist Ruslan Dyatlov in Air Pistol and FREE Pistol discipline and Gold and Silver medalist of the 25th Canadian Airgun Grand Prix 2007 Toronto, Canada,  was banned for telling over the public forum that “this tool is not appropriate for learning the art of target shooting.” 

“I’m one of those who were ridiculed by Russ for using Izh-53 in my “initiation” period. He said something like “in my ex-country it was used in circuses for amusing masses”

“Sorry to have to do this, but these past few threads are not acceptable.” wrote Mr. Pilkington.

“I’m one of those who were ridiculed by Russ for using Izh-53 in my “initiation” period. He said something like “in my ex-country it was used in circuses for amusing masses.” Sure, I called him anal but his downplaying did not stop me shooting. He was harsh and crude to whomever did not share his vision of shooting sport (mighty Olympic ideal, or what ever that was, Russ was never clear about it) but also represented an outside-this-forum view on air pis-tol discipline. Majority of the forum visitors in fact agreed with his statements about need for adequate dedication and mentoring if certain level of results is to be achieved. His problem was reckless promotion of his own course and rudeness in addressing others. However, the level of entertainment that he provided outweighed, in my opinion, degree of discomfort that his posts presented. It was somewhat fun to read what he put on the forum, the single-minded perseverance to prove his fluctuated point. That is why I think he should not be banned, but just ignored by other forum visitors. Once he is left alone and with no audience, he would tone down the language or disappear altogether.”
