You should move out of New York before you fill a gun with cement
I would say you shouldn't dry fire a .22, but it doesn't sound like that'll be a big problem!

Definition of better may vary. I don't like pellet guns, they seem pointless to me. If I'm going to shoot metal bullets, they might as well be real bullets. Whereas these plastic bbs can be shot indoors and anywhere, legally, without any license or age requirements (in most states).

I would never, ever waste my money on a pellet gun.

Also a plastic projectile is cheaper, with more replica options, for practice with the real steel version. Gas is propane, cheapo Coleman fule tubes, and 10,000 biodegradable bbs at Walmart cost only $20.

Sorry, but pellet doesn't even come close to comparing, or even being valid as far as I'm concerned.

I can't believe how many people suggest moving when these types of threads pop up.

Yeah, that's easy for most... lol

Altering a real gun in any way to make it non-firing does not change the fact that it is a real gun. You cannot alter or remove the serial number (federal felony, and probably a capital offense in NY) in any case whatsoever. You must use a non-firing replica.

That having been said, I have a Rohm .22 revolver (piece of crap gun) that my sons use for practicing fancy work. It functions, but only barely, and I don't feel it is safe to shoot anymore. But I don't care if it gets dropped and breaks either. Of course it was free to me so YMMV. If they make those airsoft guns that are a good analog for the real thing then that would be ideal.

Pellet guns are illegal in N.Y.C., I think that airsoft guns are too.
