BBs are my curse, they always find their way to my place and I can't seem to get rid of them fast enough. Well, till now.

The problem:
As seen in pic below, gotz me over 17,000 of them little balls.

The solution:

Heh, that looks like way too much fun. I think I forsee a different problem in your future though, and it involves empty boxes of CO2 carts.

The smile it puts on your face is far beyond anything else I've handled, and that includes multi-thousand dollar PCP guns (while at the Didsbury shoot - what a memorable day that was - thanks Brian!)

But yeah, the supply of 12g CO2 is dwindling fast. That Uzi thing is hungry for gas. Good thing I bought plenty when they were on sale. What I need now is a second magazine (where the canister goes). That will greatly add to the fun. You'd be surprised how fast 25 rounds leave the nozzle.

The good news is, the BBs are also dwindling fast as seen in this pic after a brief session with the BB spitter.

:lol: :lol: :lol:
Yup
They are amazing
They can really spit out the bb's
You need to hook it up to a bottle of c02
And a few other little mods
Then the bb's will really fly

So you have one of these too huh? Yep, great fun indeed. Even in semi-auto mode, given how accurate it is (not to be judged by my poor aiming in the video).
Don't laugh but I got a good few bumps to my cheek while trying to aim it with my face resting on the retractible stock in full auto. Pulled the trigger and learned a lesson on recoil real fast. Face hurt for some time after that. That thing kicks like a mule.

You'll have to show me the CO2 bottle trick sometime. Swapping canisters after two rounds is a bit of a downer. And those other mods you mentioned. Could also use a bit of mentoring in how to properly lube the insides.

:cry:
Nope
Do not have one
But got to shoot one at one of our meets
It was really amazing
Everyone that shot it had a blast - :lol:
The BB's were everywhere
And, unfortunately, because of this we had to stop the use of BB's
But it put a lot of smiles on peoples faces

And just imagine the smiles it will put on your future grandkids, when Brennan gifts you with a couple of offsprings of his own - and all the fun they'll have while foraging the grounds with a couple of metal detectors! You can help make a game out of it, like who fills up their buckets the fastest. Another game could be had with the theme of the day, like you could have silver BB day where they'd only be allowed to collect Umarex BBs.
You could encourage their creative skills by having them create collages using a glue stick and all the BBs they can stick onto a cardboard.

Imagine how much fun Easter would be where instead of hunting for eggs you'd arm them with metal detectors and send them on tiny metal egg hunts.

All the limitless fun BBs bring us all.

So please think about that before you decide to bar BBs from the shoots. I was so looking forward to bringing the BB spitter there.
