Just wondering if you shoot a bb gun on a bb catcher, do you reuse them?

Of course ~ why not? I will use them as many times as I can, usually means before I can't find it again... =)

Most of my BBs end up in a duct-seal based target, so re-use isn't an option...

When practicing my shooting drills outdoors they all get lost in the grass. But during winter shooting in the basement I use a soft pellet and bb catcher made of old towels and jeans. When I’m done shooting I just shake each one and the bbs falls at the bottom of the box. Never experienced a jam from a bad bb.

BB's are cheap and readily available so no. I'd rather use the time to shoot.

I agree with last post. Years ago I would reuse BB's. Then they jammed my Daisy 1894 a couple of times. Now don't reuse them, and no more jams. BB's are relatively cheap. I now use the used BB's as media in shooting bags like this one from PA. A lot cleaner than using sand. But need lots to fill this bag.

I made a collector bin target trap. But I only paid 4.86 for 2500 BB's. So I'll probably won't bother to try and clean the BB's to re use.

I will reuse the BBs only in the same session... If you finish your shooting so just leave alone the used BBs. They are not made from stainless steel and can be easily rusted ( in just few days they might only change color but will become no more shiny smooth on the skin)...

So don't think about next week I can pick up a BB from the ground and re use it ~ [emoji57]

Never reuse mine. Maybe I’m lazy but I treat them like pellets, one time use.

Never. I don't really see the point. I'm not picking the ones I drop so I'm certainly not going to try and pick-up the ones I'm shooting...

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