Really? That looks like something worth looking into. No moving parts to service, making usable darts is probably easy too.

My issue with bb guns is this: What can they do that a crossbow cant? Crossbows are nearly as quiet, have reuseable ammo, are easy to carry, and FAR more lethal than a bb gun.
I guess i look at it like this: Yes, a bb gun would have its uses in a survival situation. But There are tools, such as a crossbow, that have all of the same uses, and more. And in the end, in a survival situation, its all about choosing what would be the MOST useful to take with you.
Give me a 12ga., a .223, a sidearm and a crossbow. Ill leave the bb gun at home.
