Question training with airsoft for action shooting sports?

Given the still sky high ammo prices, does anyone use airsoft as a supplement for live fire training for shooting sports such as USPSA, 3-gun, steel challenge, etc.?

I setup a mini COF (course of fire) in my garage. Yes, the Texas Star is a hoot to shoot.

I use laser ammo which is airsoft and a projector. It is great to stay tuned up-the only thing I've noticed is the much lower recoil with airsoft makes you need to readjust to higher recoil after the first shot to stay on target with real steel.

Why not, other than recoil control, alot of training can be done with Airsoft.

Here are some of the airsoft I used to supplement my training.

The KWA RM4 has a kinetic feedback system to simulate recoil. But, it's more like a 22lr than a 223. The weight of the rifle is similar to a real one unloaded.

The Jag Arms shotgun and AW Custom pistol are gas powered, but the recoil is nothing like that of the real thing. But, the handling and manipulation of both are similar to their real steel cousins.
