They are not substitutes for real firearms.
Except that they have similar weight, a recoiling slide and exactly the same sights and ergos as they gun they replicate.

I get that they are not firearms, but I do see where the firearms instructor was coming from when he made that recommendation...

The problem with the air pistol is, despite decent weight and recoil from the spring action, is that follow-ups are not possible, being single shots.
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.

Karma. Another word for revolver: because what goes around, comes around!
