    Well, I think the question is already in the title. So no one will be interested to read it again from here.

    Yes sorta, the triggers dont feel the same but it can help you break a flinch if you have one as well as avoiding jerking the trigger but you wont be able to work on trigger reset like you can dry firing a real gun

    Yes. Practice acquiring a sight picture will always help. And dry firing or firing anything will help alleviate flinching.

    That said, if you have a gun, or guns, that you want to be competent with. Nothing will beat live fire range time with those specific guns.

    100%. Gas blowback helps the best. Helped me with pistol shooting and flinching.

    It can. Just remember practice makes permanent! So practice the correct way!

    Somewhat, it can help you with figuring out how not to torque a handgun as you pull the trigger, but drawing to point of aim, taming the muzzle flip, and figuring out your trigger requires your actual gun.

    Learn to pull the trigger without moving the gun.

    Get a 22 for extra range practice and dry fire your pistol every night before bed.

    Definitely. It’s less useful (not to mean “not useful”) for practicing shooting fundamentals, but it’s great for general handling practice and transitions. Especially with the quality of some of the airsoft guns out there, you’ll be getting 90% of the experience in a package you can safely use in your backyard.

    Then you can make the next step and start doing milsim airsoft events. That’ll teach you actual tactics and you can put your shooting practice to the test.

    Yes.

    (I shoot airsoft for 3 years prior to buying/owning real guns. In the first month, I went from 5 yards to 10 yards. In 4 years, I went from 5 yards to 200 yards. These are pistols. Even when I can’t go to the range, I can shoot airsoft safely in my room or on the backyard. So yes, it helps.)

    Yes, a 1911 airsoft pistol taught me the basics of handgun shooting and got me use to a thicker, 45 sized grip. This allowed me to learn revolvers and other handguns quicker then most and I am still about as good of a handgun shot as I am with a rifle.
