I went to Threat Dynamics for the first time with a friend in late January because the IPSC range at TCGC was closed for resurfacing. It was more fun than I ever had at the club. Got to shoot at bad guys, got to use someone else's gun that worked like a real Glock 17 including recoil, didn't need any ammo or have to pick up brass or clean guns afterward, and the cost was less than doing the same on the range at the usual steel and paper targets. Unfortunately, the tazer belts were in out being worked on so we didn't get the full effect of knowing when we were shot (happened once so I guess it wasn't that big a deal). Anyway, I liked it so much I wanted a way to do it at home. Unfortunately, I can't afford $50k for such a cool setup. But I have been looking for something I could afford and think I found it. Today I discovered some air soft pistols that have the feel and weight of real guns and also work exactly the same as real guns in that the slides come back providing simulated recoil, shoots plastic bbs fairly accurately, and only cost about a penny per shot (the bbs can be reused). I have owned cheap soft air guns before and they were nothing like this. I ordered an Elite Force 1911 Tac CO2 blow back pistol that is the same size and weight as my Kimber 45 (which I love to shoot). I know it isn't going to feel like the real thing with recoil, but it will be great for working on my draw and speed from holster to hitting the target, without costing a couple thousand $ in ammo practicing. The cost was only $119 for the gun, $30 for an extra 14 rnd mag, and $28 for 25 CO2 cartridges and 5000 .20 cal bb's or about the cost of 450 rnds of pre-gouge priced ball ammo. Shipping is free. I am looking forward to it's arrival in the next few days and I will report back on the quality, function, accuracy in the garage (close enough for real life practice), and any issues. To me it was worth giving it a try as drawing and firing smooth and fast is my weakest link and hope this will be an inexpensive way of working on both. And there was no out of stock icon in the checkout section so I won't have to wait for months to get it. Btw, they come in dozens of popular configurations including pistols, revolvers. rifles and burst and full auto fire modes. If the 1911 works well, my next will be a Glock. Several manufacturers make them so prices vary up and down. Has anyone else tried one of these?
