Getting in needed training time is always a challenge, especially when there is no range nearby for live-fire practice. You can do dry-fire training at home in order to keep your skills up to date, and doing dry fire practice with a replica gun adds an extra level of safety to your training. The new SIG Sauer ProForce P229 Airsoft is designed give owners of the SIG P229 a safe training tool for use at home, as well as provide safe fun for the entire family.

The ProForce P229 is a full-size, metal-frame airsoft pistol that is the official training firearm of the U.S. Coast Guard. The pistol has an ergonomic polymer grip that mimics the grip of the P229 pistols used by the Coast Guard. The ProForce P229 is powered by green gas and features a full-metal slide with realistic blowback, along with a drop magazine which holds 25 rounds of 6 mm polymer or biodegradable BBs. Up front is a Picatinny accessory rail that allows for the mounting of a laser or tactical flashlight, and the slide mounts fixed front and rear white-dot sights that facilitate quick target acquisition.

The SIG AIR ProForce P229 has a muzzle velocity of up to 295 fps, and a muzzle energy of .8 joules when using a .20-gram polymer BB. These results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
