At one time I would have agreed with you, that airsoft was a waste. Until Saturday that is, where I picked up a quality HK USP. 45 airsoft for 200 bucks with air can, and bag of 6 mm pellets. This thing duplicates every function slide operates, locks open on mt, decocker, sa / da, safety, accurate, I can do drills in my yard that would be flat out unsafe with a real gun. Hip shooting, Mozambique, shooting the walnuts from the hip is a hoot!
If it was not for the hot orange front, and the made in sticker it feels and looks absolutely real!
I hold airsoft as invaluable tool, u can learn so much that u can't learn on a square range. You do need people dedicated to to train as you. The one thing I've found is that stand and deliver is a quick way to lose a gunfight, and you can't learn to get off the x and point shoot at a conventional range in a weaver stance slow firing

To have an airsoft mixed-up with your real-steel firearms is going to be a HUGE problem, to say the least.
Be sure to have a system to cover the basic safety issues of both, as well as to have specifics implemented on each side of that equation, too. :smile: Each of us have our unique safety concerns and needs, so assess your situation in a logical and thorough manner, and then implement rules that you'll never sidetrack or shortcut.
Stay safe! :smile:
I have an airsoft and use it during the winter months when I can't get to the range as often. I also recently got a CO2 powered BB replica of my carry gun. The trigger is close to the real thing. I'm happy with it, and I can shoot indoors where it is warmer.
