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.
