How about some Hostage Rescue shooting drills, on a low budget.

Three pebbles representing hostages and five rocks representing bad guys. :P I know bad joke.

How low of a budget? Paper targets, draw a mini-man on them if you have to.

Wow, that brings back memories. LOL. Absolutely! Go with the balloons as hostages and use airsoft guns if you can get them. The drills of coming through the doors and shooting the bad guy past the "hostage" (balloon) makes for excellent practice! Especially if you have a little bit of a breeze to simulate a jittery hostage. Make sure your "bad guys" have thick clothing and face shields on, too.
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.
