    I did some searches and some thinking and am getting ready to get an airsoft outfit for training/fun in the house. The only problem is, I can't find anyone who makes my gun in airsoft form.

    I carry an M&P Compact 9mm, and I have seen the M&P 40 airsofts but never a compact. I was thinking it would be better to train with a smaller gun with a shorter barrel, as that's what I carry, but now I am not so sure, because my gun doesn't seem to be an option. The make G26 airsofts, but the grip angle is all wrong compared to my M&P. Would the HK USP Compact be a good choice (similar grip angle/feel) or should I just go with the M&P40 full size?

    Full size. The sights, grips, etc will be similar, whereas the other gun is just similar in size, nothing else.

    That and it's an airsoft gun, not a firearm. The airsoft gun isn't going to give you an identical trajectory so the extra barrel length isn't a big deal. Get the M&P fullsize and have fun with your new way to train cheaply indoors.
