New Guy Shoots Real Steel

I'm an Alberta-boy with some shameful mall-ninja tendencies. I primarily shoot real lead at steel targets. I love my real guns, but I can't shoot my friends with them, so I'm starting to look more closely at airsoft options.

I know the guys in Red Deer fairly well, so we'll see what my future holds as far as getting out and hitting the bush. Right now I'm just feeling the community out, trying to justify the cost of a new handgun going into a "pretend" rifle.

And now I see the sign saying "post your hellos here and not somewhere else" but that delete button is finickey to find sometimes

Double Tap Tactical will get you fitted out if you want the best AR there is available, although at $1.7K for an airsoft AR you could just as easily buy a real steel one.

Other than that brands to look out for are G&P (I own 2), and VFC for electric. If you want gas powered and that little semblance of recoil; WE (will need to gut it and replace with more durable aftermarket parts), KJW (ready out of the box), and KSC/KWA's newest offerings (they're actually quite nice but kind of late to the Gas Blow Back Rifle scene and are competing with companies that have a couple years ahead of them in R&D) are probably what you should look for.

in addition to the " shooting your friends" aspect.. Airsoft is an excellent training tool for RS shooters..

you can train holster work, .. and rifle .. transitions .. test out gear for efficiency .. and work close quarters shooting .. all without a trip to the range.. and for a tiny fraction of the cost of ammunition.

for anyone serious about tactical shooting.. you pretty much meed to get into airsoft.. or be independently wealthy to afford the ammunition to do the same things with RS
