I will agree with the idea that this is a good thing...air guns in general....for survival. It's one tool in the tool box if looked at as just that.
A tool, instead of a toy. I'd never even joke about using a BB gun against a person. That may sound good for someone who doesn't own a gun....but
looks as silly as it really is, once a real firearm has been what you've used for awhile. The comparison is..just not there.
A BB gun COULD be fatal ..If it just right, in the head.. perhaps the temple or eyeball. I actually thought that ought too, although I was a teen back
when I was thinking of improvising like that. I'm awfully glad I never tested that theory. I'd have gotten myself killed.. lol
I mean, if an encounter wasn't going to be a fatal one before or perhaps never needed to be, I'd say all that goes out the window forever with the
first BB fired at someone with the obvious intent to seriously harm them. The other person is likely to take a few hits getting to ya...but what
happens then is the part best left to fade to black and imagination I'd say. Personally? If I were shot AT that way and realized the person MEANT to
kill me with it....the fact it was highly unlikely might very well not matter to me in taking them at their intent for how I respond... Just a thought
on air guns and defense.
Now...I LOVE airguns for the idea of small game like is about all someone is going to find in an urban area. If the going gets tough enough? Airguns
WOULD easily kill small animals of all kinds and do it without making a big boom to be heard for a few blocks in all directions too.
