Anybody using it for training?

I'm admit to owning both an airsoft pistol and a rifle. I only use these for firearms training. I'm not into airsoft specific events at all. Is anybody else using airsoft for firearms training? You don't need to be an instructor for this. The training can be your own and for yourself.

Yes.

Hope that answers your question.

It does, and invites more specific questions, but I need to get going to work. I'm post more later.

I have an airsoft Colt Commander. I don't use it to train though, more for a boredom factor cure on a cold snowy day.

Back when my boys were younger and really into Airsoft I remember overhearing them arguing with their friends over the relative merits of .12 gram and .20 gram Airsoft ammo. It made me smile at the time and affirmed that caliber arguments are somehow ingrained into male DNA.

To answer the OPs question, I don't train with it, but I own a M24 copy for winter time basement plinking. I think it's made by Lancer.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Not me personally, though it might be a viable alternative in some situtions outside of target practice and dry fire practice for trigger control drills.

It's good for a whole lot more, and I'm bringing some of it with me. I just spent the entire day working as an assistant instructor in a course where airsoft was used. I've got a few marks on me, and I'm exhausted. I've got another course coming up on 1/31 where we're using airsoft and SIRT, and another course on 2/21 that is all airsoft. I know that I will be leading full drills on 2/21. I'm very excited about bringing this stuff to Pennsylvania.

Interested to know what type of instructing and how the air soft was incorporated into it.

I don't want to say too much out of concern of losing what appears to be a first to the market advantage. With that said, I'll just say that I've taken ccw courses in 5 states. Each state has different requirements, the most detailed and time consuming being Illinois's 16 hour course with a 30 round live fire test. I'm certified to teach the courses for 4 of these states. What I've noticed is none of these courses touch on the realities of having to use a firearm in a DGU situation. It'll take people from a square range to a full 360° situational awareness with movement, including coming out of a holster in a variety of real world-like scenarios to the best ability that can be done in a classroom environment.
