pneumatic bb gun on utube

just to let you know...
if you fire at someone there should be only two results

1. death
2. injury that renders them TOTALLY INCAPACITATED and seriously maimed, like blowing off a hand or foot

anything less will only get YOURSELF killed!

if you kill one, you should be ready to kill his buddies too
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1135376


he must mean one of those guns that are almost like a mini gun. they would actually seriously tear someone to shreds. i think they can shoot like over 1000 bbs a minute.

screw it i tell you what, just get one of these...

Re: ARE BB GUNS ANY GOOD FOR DEFENSE???
If the BB Gun interests you, you should look into other weapons in the same class.

The infamous Rubber Band Gun

I would say sling shot, but the sling shot might actually kill someone with the right object loaded into it.

Spitwads are about as good

Darts, once again would probably be a move up in class.

water balloons might get their attention and be in the same class as the b b, that is unless you load a much ore deadly liquid in them, and then it would also move up a class in defense.

a frisby might really smart like a bb.

Throwing your shoe would also be about the same

 Quoting: natasha77


No, I'm not. Price out pepper spray. If you're not prepared for the front door, or back, well then good luck. On the other hand, all we're trying to do is delay the assault, with time on our side and this is a formidable offensive move.

......just sayin'.
 Quoting: DeadBeacon


Just wondering, that's all. So just an ordinary can or is it some specialty device??? shoots 30 feet?
I should get a few cans and place them strategically by the doors and bedrooms.hf
 Quoting: natasha77


most wasp spray cans have 30 foot range so you get the nest.

at $4 per can, yeah, one in each room is easy

and it can be lethal. it will stop someone now sprayed in the face.

Yes if you need a weapon that doesn't make much noise and also causes no injury
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13864401


Could a criminal be stopped by pumping a few rounds??? Be serious, please.peace
 Quoting: natasha77


Seriously. NO. A BB gun is not going to stop an attacker. It will only piss them off. If you aren't going to arm yourself with a real gun but your attacker thinks you have one because all he knows is that you are pointing something at him, you are only going to get yourself shot... by a real gun.

Not everyone is cut out for guns. That's fine. Just don't bother picking anything up that looks like a gun if it isn't and don't bother getting a real gun if you can't handle the thought and never intend to use it. You would be better off with mace or a taser.
 Quoting: Resister


Yea, so true. I understand what you mean. A little lady with a mean looking pistol that shoots BB's would probably get me killed.
I just thought it would incapacitate an intruder, at least while i ran with my stiff painful knee.
That wasp killer is starting to look better and better, at least their eyes would burn for awhile.
Thanks.

We were talking about "a big can of....." so I made reference to why it would be good, that being said it can and should be anything at hand. What is near everybody's front door? Maybe an umbrella, a cane, a whatever that you can use to distract the intruders eyes, for that split second, knowing your next move is the difference.

Take some local defense courses for your own piece of mind. You'll be amazed at what you'll learn that's available to you......at all times.

Would you consider a blow gun? I have one and it is a lot of fun. Some of the darts are four inches long...then of course they have little plastic ball tips on them too.

You can get very accurate. It is very silent. You can dip the points in peanut butter and hope they are allergic to peanuts!

I'm not the violent type but would like to own something that "hurts" lol.

Seriously, can you inflict pain on an intruder or stop them?
 Quoting: natasha77


Precisely why my conceal carry instructor instructed us to shoot to kill . Not Hurt or injur . Because then you really just pissed somebody off that obviously wasnt giving much of a fuck to begin with.

Not only that but you leave yourself open to lawsuit for malicious injury because if you were shooting < bb gun or otherwise > simply to injur you obviously didnt believe your life was in danger.

On top of that . I got shot in the eye when I was 20 and a single stream of blood flowed from my eye. It mad me mad EXTREMELY mad. The only thing that stopped me from destroying the guy that did it was it was an accident . If I'd been an intruder in your house and you shot me in the eye? Seeing I'd already be a bad guy in that instance I woulda crammed that bb gun up your ass sideways.

Get a gun , a real gun . And aim center mass. It would suck having taken someones life but . I always say " better you than me "

they sell high powered air rifles chambered in .357, .45, and .50 calibers (do a search on them). Hit a crook in the chest with that and it's curtains for him.
