Lots of great advice and lots to think about here guys thank you for your help.
If you've held the real steel and like it, then go with that. Most good airsoft is pretty near 1:1 dimension. Weight may be off, but that's understandable. For full metal pistols, they can be nearly the weight of a real one because of the heavy metal mag.
