    due to $100 airsoft guns,, very low-cost competitions where you can meet the best gunhandlers that ever walked the earth, airsoft shot-timers, phone cams, and vids on youtube. Ditto learning to hit tossed up targets in mid air, horizontally moving targets, etc.. The visible-in-flight, 1/2c per shot pellets show you all you need to know about the "leading" required to hit moving targets, point-shooting, sight picture and trigger control and the $120 shot timer shows you what you need to know about efficient movement. When you feel like it was fast, and the timer says that it was slow, it means that you had wasted motion in the move, so look at the vid of yourself, slow it down, and watch for the unnecessary extra motion.

    A silenced .22lr autopistol is every bit as 'tame" to use as the airsoft gun, so, yes, airsoft practice CAN lead to real ability with real guns.

    And a penchant for suppressors. Everything has a "silencer".
