Default best target shooting gun?

I use my current airsoft pistol to just shoot at targets, cuz airsoft is a lot cheaper than real bullets, and I don't live near any firing ranges. I don't play airsoft other than shoot at some targets, or even paintball, because there really isn't anyone around where I live that plays. I don't want a pellet/metal BB gun cuz I want something that looks like a military gun, and I don't want to sit there and pump it.


I have an "officially licensed" HK P30 electric pistol I bought from Wal-Mart (or maybe it was Meijer, IDK). I don't know the FPS, but it isn't very accurate, even at about 20 feet. I was just looking at getting something with a higher FPS and a higher capacity magazine (mine only holds 18, and I reload it more than I shoot) that is more accurate, but not too costly. I would at least go 50 feet or longer if I can. Also, i do use the .20g BBs, not the .12g. I used the pack the gun came with and I could tell the difference.

EDIT: also, electric or CO2 is preferred. If there is a spring powered that is super good for target shooting ad is very accurate, and is easy to cock, I'll look at those too.

If you're looking for a pistol to practice shooting targets with I'd suggest gas (Green gas or CO2). I definitely wouldn't get anything electric because for one their velocity tends to be a little less, and fixing them isn't as easy as most gas pistols. On top of that most gas pistols render a more realistic look and feel.

In terms of gas there's hundreds of choices. It all depends on the style pistol you're into. The majority of pistols have/had an airsoft counter-part.

do you have a price range? There are some very nice Gas blow back pistols out there that are very nice and have a good strong kick when you shoot them. They can be had for around $100-$150 on average. Some being more/less expensive, but at the same time, you get what you pay for in quality.

For what shooting you do, I highly recommend any pistol from the page on this link:
Evike.com - Airsoft Guns | Evike.com - Gas Airsoft Pistols | Evike.com - KJW |

*Just don't by anything that says "Y&P" in that link.

If you have any questions on how to use maintain these pistols feel free to ask as much as you need to on the forum.

Waht are you talking about? Even the spring pistols I had WAY back had at least a 15 rnd capacity. One even had a 30rnd mag... Although I've been out of the loop on current springers maybe they lowered to capacity to suck you into buying there proprietary mags.

And seeing as green gas pistols cover about 90% of the market, my statement still stands.
