By "decent quality pistol" I think we can assume he comes from the Walmart/Canadian Tire springer world... in which case it would constitute some kind of an upgrade, I guess.

To OP:

It is definitely too hot for the "odd game with friends" on property. Someone might get hurt and you don't want that.

As for the "other Misc things": As long as you're not shooting squirrels and birds... I guess that's right. Inhert target only please? Be responsible, this is a weapon, not a toy.

Wear eye protection, even when just target shooting -> BBs loves to bounce, a lot.

Make sure you DO NOT get seen with a pistol in public; ANY kind of public.
If living in a city or something, be extra cautious of that. A better advice would be don't use it outdoors in that case, because it's probably illegal anyways, according to your city's bylaws.

The reason we care about this? If you get in the news because cops got called on you and weapons were drawn, you'd contribute on ruining the sport for everyone (especially you, but everyone else too). So please, just make sure you're handling that thing responsibly!

Cheers

Opinions of SS pistols aside, to answer your question:

Generally speaking, a heavier bb is more stable in it's flight path. Heavier bb's will more consistently end up in the same place because they're less effected by outside influences such as wind. The further a bb travels the slower it moves and the more it can be influenced. So the benefits of a heavier bb will be most obvious at long ranges. Heavier bb's will also have an easier time punching through leaves and brush.

The brand of bb can matter more than the weight, make sure you are using a good brand of bb such as Madbull or BB Bastard. IMO .2's are more than fine for indoor plinking. For outdoor games you'll probably be fine with .25's. Try different weights for yourself and see what you prefer because it's really down to personal preference and what works best for you.

For outdoor play I use .28's in my long gun and .25's in my pistol. My pistol is a secondary and for close ranges so a lighter bb is more that suitable for how I use it. The other reason I use .25's in my pistol is because that's what I use for indoor and I don't like changing my pistol's hop-up all the time.

Thanks guys! And yes every airsoft gun I've had has come from walmart/canadian tire that's why this is such an upgrade for me.

And the muzzle velocity for my city for it to be considered a firearm is 487 feet, so I should be fine "if not used in a criminal or negligent manner." Also I don't plan on running around and shooting small animals, that's cruel. Mostly target practice!

The cops won't bother asking when they get called. They will see A GUN. And act accordingly.

Treat any BB gun as if it was a real firearm. Will save you worlds of hurt.

Yes of course, it basically is a real gun. I don't plan on running around town flashing my gun around.
