I bought this to cheaply practice pistol shooting. This is my first BB pistol and it is lightweight but doesn't feel cheap to me. Maybe when I learn more I'll feel different but I doubt it. Accuracy is good enough. 20 BBs in a 2.5 inch bullseye at 5 yards. I didn't do it, a friend did who shoots quite well. This gun uses steel BBs, NOT Copper, and I get from 140 to 180 shots on one CO2 cartridge. I have about 1500 BBs down the barrel and it's chugging along just fine. Trigger pull is long but it breaks nicely and I can feel the shot coming just before it breaks. The farthest I have shot with it is 10 yards and the BB penetrates several layers of cardboard at that distance. Overall, I'm delighted. I've spent 5 dollars on propellant and BBs for the shooting I've done and if I was shooting 9MM it would have cost me hundreds of dollars. That's cheap training. Does it translate directly to a centerfire pistol? Not quite, but you get practice with stance, grip, sight picture, trigger pull, magazine release, and follow through. The safety is on the right side of the frame forward of the trigger guard so the safety use training isn't very realistic but I always use it to get my mind thinking about a safety. The only thing I can think this might replicate is a 22LR semi auto and the weight is close to some of those but for the money I don't think I could ask for more. My wife is sure I have entered my 2nd childhood with this pistol but I tell her I'm getting valuable training. I am but it's also cheap fun.
