What's the Point of a GBB?

Really, what are the advantages? Of course, yeah, it looks cool and the authenticity is nice to a degree, but at that point the practical differences end. Buying a pistol with blowback seems like a good way to pay more for something that you really don't need to pay much money for. Are there any correlations between gas blowback and performance? Do the mechanics just have this tendency to be really high quality? Or is it just coolness and vanity that people are looking for when they get one?

Speaking of sidearms, I am not exactly a fan of realism. I get enough of that at work.

I am attracted to NBBs for a simple reason. Gas efficiency and performance. I'd never trade my Mk.23 SOCOM for any other pistol with a single exception. The KWA Pistolet Makarova. Jokes aside, this is the gun that is going to finally complete my Russian paratrooper kit.

But, if I were to take side in the GBB vs. NBB, I'd always go NBB.
