Practice idea
 
Sounds strange, but I bought a 1911 air soft. This thing is accurate and can be used almost anywhere. I think it is great for building target acquisition and skill building. With the bright bbs you can see where you hit every time.
What do you think?

I know this doesn't replace practice with the real thing, but has improved my skills considerably

Ya it helps alot. A pellet pistol is how I got good w a pistol.....I still shoot it occasionally just to practice.

Dern, I wish they would have had those years ago.

The down side I see is that if one follows where the BBs go, then that may carry over to live fire practice and one stops using the sights.

How well do the BBs work on "shoot-n-see" targets?
