I would consider a .22 lr
Ammo is cheap. (just found 5000 rounds for 150 bucks)
Hits much harder than a .bb gun. If you've ever had to hunt you'd know that knockdown is just as important as hitting your target.
There are so many different styles of .22lr out there it is insanity... There are semi autos (which includes both the 10/22 and AR-15 style .22lr as well as others), single shot, single shot bolt action, standard blind mag bolt action. There are also .22 handguns available so you can use the same ammunition for your handgun as you do with your rifle.
Chances are if your gun breaks you will find another .22lr out there and equally as likely you will find .22lr ammo all over the place.
.22 is the most common bullet you will find..
Another plus side to the .22lr is you can carry thousands of rounds for it without having to deal with the weight associated with larger calibers.
"A .22 will kill further than you can shoot it accurately"
Yes they have a nice long kill distance and are very easily suppressed.edit on 6-4-2012 by DaMod because: (no reason given)edit on 6-4-2012 by DaMod because: (no reason given)

This is an embarrassment to this Forum...
No not necessarily, I think it's a great idea. Perhaps not for personal protection but I can see a bb gun being quite useful in a shtf scenario.

Why on earth a catapults called sling shots? they are totally different in operation, its the same as calling spades shovels, they both do different jobs!
