Yes, we were using small darts.

Say goodbye to your rifling... and accuracy.
These darts are made of steel (which is harder than lead) and will grind down your rifling until you're left with a smoothbore (which is what you should use when shooting these darts).
They also don't seal very well so it's close to dry firing your gun (that's a big no-no!)

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun
