    I didn’t intend to derail the thread. I hope you get more answers, because I’ve been looking for something similar since I ran into the issues with my airsoft Glock.
    I will definitely share my findings, pistol should be here Saturday. I know this pistol chronos in the 300 fps range with .20g BB's. They don't have much energy, but can fly straight for a fair distance if the hop up is adjusted, and working efficiently.

    You didn't derail the thread. No one person ever does.

    On a more personal level, we are all on this board for reasons of our own. We do however share common interests. Would it not be easier to build friendships, and more beneficial to the board, the act of shooting, and firearm ownership across the board. If we tried as hard to get along, as we did to create friction and rivalry with one another? There are obviously some elephants in the room. I know I have had some issues of my own with some. Much due in part to my general, and lackadaisical use of terminology. I tend not to be very specific when talking about a thing, because I, and most of the people I interact with would get the point, without further explanation. At one time I found entertainment value in this. Now it is arduous, and an act of labor to wade through, and I would generally just prefer not to do it.

    Good post. I agree. Hope you find the perfect fix.
    Doesnít play well with TROLLS...

    I've been leaning on .22 for my training needs, but that's mostly because I'm already invested in .22 pistols and ammo. If I move to airsoft, I'd need to start investing in new guns and ammo and whatever other junk I'd need.

    But if I was starting from scratch, I'd give airsoft a look.

    I have access to a private range so shooting isn’t the issue. I already have the Airsoft Glock, but I’ll be completely honest and tell you that I’ve also been looking into a .22lr pistol. If you have the ammunition for it, shooting at a few cents per round is much better than $0.26-0.60/rd. That being said, I can shoot my airsoft Glock in the garage or backyard and no one will pay attention to it. The only inconvenience is setting up some form of a trap to catch the BB’s. I have plans to make a trap that I can attach to my IPSC stands, but I need to make it and test it out.

    Some are now using ground up tires in their traps.

    I know it's a bit of a cliche, but I love my Glock 44. I can run the same rig that I run for my 17 and 19, and it does a pretty good job of approximating the feel of the "real thing."

    I was lucky and stocked up heavily on .22 late in 2019. That said, I'm not burning through it like I normally would, 'cause I know it's going to be speedy to replace for a while.

    For bullet traps or airsoft BB’s? Because I’m not looking to purchase ground up tires to catch something a hand towel can.

    My only hesitation towards the Glock 44 is the low magazine capacity (which isn’t THAT big of an issue) and the lack of RDS options.

    I have 2 airsoft pistols I practice with. The 2011 is powered by green gas, and the CZ Shadow is powered by CO2. Both are excellent practice guns and beat dry fire practice in my opinion.
    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

    I carry a gun because I'm too old for an ass whoopin', and too young to die!
