There are two reasons why the military would use airsoft for training, cost and safety. Simunition rounds can be expensive (last I check they were about $.50 each) and they also have a minimum engagement distance due to the fact that it can be fatal if shot at a close range even with the safety equipment on. With airsoft, you don`t have to worry about M.E.D. as much, and we all know how much bbs are, so cost isn`t an issue as well. Hell, with airsoft you can shoot someone point blank without the risk of serious injury or death, which can happen in a CQB enviroment.
