    Cagit?

    Good call. I am sure it will improve your skills. I need one and we can battle.

        Cagit was a forum member from 6 years ago or so that first advocated practicing with airsoft on the forum. They apparently make ones that have reciprocating slides to simulate recoil

          Umarex got the licence from Glock to produce airsoft pistols

          Except for noise and some recoil the operation is very similar, they even work from the same holster

          I probably average 200+ rounds fired from airsoft for every 50 rounds of live fire

          For SELF DEFENSE practice airsoft is far more useful than live fire

            I found my self hunting with a crossman 1377. with the right pellets these shoot quite accurately. It can be used to cheaply hone your accuracy.
            I would like an airsoft in p226 or g17

              The B.S. people tell themselves. Not saying that it doesn't or won't improve precision but... You appear to scoff at FoF then bring up honing your accuracy. Priorities.
              Failure is an opportunity to learn.

                Where did I scoff at FOF? I think it has a lot of benefits.

                    If you can refrain from the insults for a moment, what do you think of the pistol

                    That's what the post is about

                      I would be curious if sights hit to the same POA as your g19......

                        Does it matter? What do you think you'll be doing in FoF or in an actual case of self defense with a firearm? Bullseye shooting some BG from across a parking lot? I'm actually really curious.

                          I suspect at five yards there would be little difference, past 10-12 yards head shots get to be a little iffy especially if the gas is starting to run out or there is some wind

                          The group shown in the picture is the only group I've shot with the pistol, everything else is from movement at 0-10 feet

                          So far reliability has been excellent

                            in post #2 I said it was a good idea.

                              You hurt his feelings by agreeing with him, only the wrong way. These two morons will be the end of this forum.
