Basement with a .22 and a some blocks of thick wood??  :D

As kids, we used to shoot bb guns in the basement, using an old fitted sheet hanging from the ceiling as a backstop.  The bbs would collect in the bottom for re-use.

Um....I said BB gun; not marksman darts.

And 10 pumps?  Not hardly.

I made a backstop in our basement using duct seal and some plywood.  Stops all of our pellet and BB guns, even at 11 or 12 pumps.

My son and I shot last night and had a blast!

Air soft just purchased new one from STI off evike.com. I use a box with front cut open hang rag inside box and plastic bb drops in box bt goes through paper target. I use a coat hanger poked through box to hold rag draped over it clip my target to front of box.

Purchased the co2 mags and green gas refillable co2 cartridge the co2 cartridges themselves are little more powerful than green gas mags.

No I did not get the john wick version.  DVC version.

I'm waiting for a coolfire trainer to be shipped. I'll let you know if it's any good when I get it.

It arrived. The cycling of the action is pretty potent - not as much as live fire, but sufficient to move the gun around and activate the slide catch if your thumb is not in the right place!

I like it.

A 30gal brute garbage can filled with rubber mulch, on its side, will stop real 9mm and .45acp... I find the bullets only about half way through.

Second on the airsoft practice.

Ordered a Glock 19X from Evike and a KWA Radian Model 1.  Both green gas with a few spare mags.  Should be here this week so I've built a couple of stands for reduced size USPSA targets to set up downstairs.  I like the concept of actually shooting projectiles more than the laser trainers.

Am very interested in getting a Glock airsoft pistol.  I only have a spring operated Noname one now that is pretty much just a toy. I do have some I have two questions.

1) CO2 vs green gas: from Tony’s post above, sounds like co2 are as powerful as gg. My preference is co2 if that is the case. Also wondering if breathing in gg in an enclosed space is a health Or a fire risk.

2) Legality:   sounds like evike is still shipping to NJ.  Wasn’t there a new NJ law passed earlier this year that effectively banned all imitation firearms (eg 1” orange stripe require along its full length, etc.)

thanks

1) CO2 is better, way better. More power, more consistent. 

2) Honestly, if its an airsoft pistol i would say who cares..

    • Medal rounds for the mixed-team Air Rifle and Air Pistol events were held today.   This is a new event in this Olympic cycle, with each mixed team composed of one male and one female shooter from their respective national team in each discipline. Mixed Team 10 meter Air Rifle Gold:  China Silver:  USA Bronze: Russia*   Mixed Team 10 meter Air Pistol Gold:  China Silver: Russia* Bronze: Ukraine   *Russia and many of their top athletes are currently serving out a multi-year ban from international competition, as a result of being busted for state-sponsored doping violations on a massive scale.  However, many of their athletes are still being allowed to compete as the 'Russian Olympic Committee' (ROC) team, flying Russian colors but not the actual flag.   I'll still refer to them as Russia here. Russia making a mockery of their Olympics ban
    • Nope.  They just left it at my door.  Was USPS - has USPS stickers all over it, not Fedex.
    • Really? Mine was FedEx all the way. I assumed the signature/age requirement was because of the value. It's not a firearm and there's no serial number. Did you have to sign?
