Anybody try using airsoft for practice?

    From my understanding, airsoft guns (the good ones anyway) are getting very impressive.

    I thought about picking one up for practicing inside the house. Seems like it might be decent and very cheap practice for instinctual practice at 20 feet or so inside the house. I know it's nothing compared to real practice, but hey, more shooting is good right? The good ones are full size and weight replicas of popular firearms.

    Anybody try this?

    Here's a page comparing an airsoft beretta to it's real counterpart.

    Here's a few more to look at:

    Love 'em!!!

    We have several different models.

    Beware with them inside the house (she says in a motherly, I-banned-them-from-being-shot-inside-my-house tone) those doggone pellets multiply at night and nothing (this side of a lego) is more pleasurable to step on in your bare feet. I'm done grumbling now.

    You'll have a blast! And now's a good time to get 'em, as they seem to go on sale this time of year.
