At 25ft with a decent airsoft gun you can hit a quarter-inch to half-inch target every time.
Most pellet guns shoot over 2 joules (about 300fps with a 7.5 grain .177 pellet) and they go WAY up from there so they get out of toy territory pretty quick.
The only challenge is convincing your wife that shooting BB guns in your basement is acceptable behaviour for an adult!
This is exactly what I set up last night. Had a great time. But the battery in this cheap gun ran out fast. I'm going to look at some better guns tonight with the wife and bother in law. What do you guys think of the brand Bolt or ICS or Kings Arms? I really like the M4 style rifle and I would like to get one that I can upgrade to be really accurate and reliable. I can't anywhere in Calgary that sells VFC brand. I have read the "M4" thread and I know there are many opinions but I'm looking for reliability, ability to upgrade. Any recommendations?
