He'll be ok at least. Even though it was a BB gun the person who did it cannot be a good person, so hopefully they won't be on this earth for too long.

Re: My Husband Was Shot Tonight
He is going to be OK. It was a random shooting by unknown black males in a white car. My husband had taken our Chocolate Lab out for a quick walk in the alley before bedtime. A white car pulled up to him, the driver window went down, and my husband was shot 3 times with a BB gun. One BB went through his leather coat and got his upper arm. His arm is bruised and swollen. The police and the ambulance were here at my house. My husband, who has no medical insurance, declined treatment from the Paramedics.
A few minutes after my husband was shot, there was another shooting not too far from here.
This is crazy. To see my husband come in the door, out of breath, clutching his arm and saying he had been shot, was like something out of a movie. He was about 1/2 a block down in our alley when he got shot. My husband is physically disabled. He walks slowly, with a limp, and also has emphesema. I hope the police catch these punks.

Re: My Husband Was Shot Tonight
There are many people like me who would have dropped a few rounds in that ar before we found out if it was a bb gun or a .45ACP

Someone even acts like they are going to shoot you or has any type of gun they are assuming that you are unable to defend yourself. Their luck will run out soon.

Sorry about you hubby. I would be out lookin for those assholes

A BB can do almost as much damage as a small caliber, depending on the proximity of the gun to the victim. My husband was less than 3ft away. The shooter literally pulled up right next to him, and opened fire.
 Quoting: tiger1


You're retarded.
 Quoting: Leeroy Jenkins


The BB went through a thick leather coat, a thick pile lined sweatshirt, and a regular sweatshirt. I had a friend shot in the belly by a BB gun years ago. He had to have surgery to remove the pellets.
 Quoting: tiger1


They are making bb guns that are much more powerful than the ones the morons used to play war with.
 Quoting: Desert Fox





Not really.

There are 3 MAIN types of BB guns. Spring, Pump, and CO2.

IF it was a hand gun, it was probably CO2 or spring. Both pinch the skin, and can pierce the skin, but aren't lethal. They don't hurt anymore than strong pinch, at worst.


A pump rifle can be fairly painful.

They haven't really gotten that much stronger these days. There are exceptions of course, but I highly doubt a $300-600 BB gun was used for this. These were punk kids, using a store bought bb gun.


I thought the story was overly sensational as well. I'm sure if you started a thread asking for people who've either SHOT people with BB guns, or BEEN shot with them, you'd find a TON of people who have on here.

BB guns can shoot 450/fps and higher. No, it isn't a high power rifle but yes modern BB guns can cause serious damage so lay off the gal.

Someone she loves was assaulted so the weapon really isn't the point. The fact that it could have been much more serious has ran thru her mind and I think she has every right to be upset. If you don't like the thread just move on instead of being dicks about it.

BB gun?

We used to shoot cars with our BB guns when we were kids. Kids do dumb things. What was the point of mentioning they were black, where you going somewhere with that?

Your husband got scared because of a BB gun!?

We also used to have BB gun wars when we were LITTLE kids. I got shot 1/4" from my left eye once, last time I ever did that. My point is though, BBs arent really a threat, lol, unless you are shot in the EYEBALL.

Summary: BB Guns Can Kill


Extract: Consumer Product Safety Commission has reports of about 4 deaths per year caused by BB guns or pellet rifles. Many people do not realize that BB guns, especially high-velocity guns, can cause death. Therefore the CPSC warns that children under 16 years of age should not use high-velocity BB or pellet guns. And, like firearms, these guns should never be aimed at another person. An example of the type of warning found on high-velocity BB guns is: Publication 5089 009611 012012
[link to cs.cpsc.gov]

BB guns can and have and do cause fatalities...

Hey Tiger, don't let those that don't get it mess with ya. I see your point and so do others. I'm sure it was scary and humiliating for your husband and the what ifs that you have thought about are enough to upset any spouse.

Keep your chin up and tell your husband to take his states concealed carry handgun course. He won't ever have to be the victim again.

There is a mountain of responsibility that comes with the CCH permit but it could be the difference between being a victim or coming home to your family in a bad neighborhood.
