I have built a "range" in my basement. No, the wife wouldn't let me make one for firearms, but I did make it for pellet pistols.
I have found that my shooting stays sharper, and more in tune. My instictive shooting has improved since as well.
It cost me about $20 total to build, plus its just fun.
I have been preparing in my garage for a night fighting course that I am running next weekend. Hard to find a range that will give you "complete" darkness. The garage at night is the ticket to fast, easy, low-light fundamentals.

Yeah, I can get some pics, I'm in the middle of my work week now, I'll get some up later this week. Its rather simple, just a thick blanket used as a backstop (hanging loosly). I can add and move them around as I need, making a simple range or a "course". Its fun when you have a few minutes to spare, but can't make the trip out to a range.
airsoft is great for indoor practice.

Something you might consider is helium filled balloon(s) tied to the back of a silhoute target (a hostage situation). A little breeze will make the balloon bob back and forth. Haven't tried it in the basement or garage but we use it outside all the time.
I use a 22 conversion on a 1911 (Wilson) cheaper practrice. If it get really cold my have to try one of those air soft pistol indoors.
I don't have one, but I am posting here to thank you for what I think is one heckuva a great idea.
I'll look into it.
I have a friend who shoots (things) in his yard with BB guns to keep his skills up....
make sure you don't use bb's indoors, they bounce to much. I prefer the lead pellets.
You know, normally for cheap practice we take a .22 into the desert, but now that I rent a actualy HOUSE that sounds like a good idea. I think I might try that in the garage this weekend.
It takes a college degree to break'em;
and a high school education to fix'em!
Lets face it. I don't get as much range time as I would like, and you probably don't either. I say do anything you can to keep the edge. Sounds to me like you pretty well have it figured out.
If trouble finds you, fight like the third monkey on the ramp of Noah's Arc.
Yes, I shoot a Webly Tempest in my basement all the time.

And more info...for sure...
