I have concerns op, not because of the bb gun , shoot we use to play
war with them growing up and shoot each other. Most bb guns really dont
do much but sting a little.
What worry's me, is if that was a bear or large animal and you had hit it, i think
odds are you would of just ticked it off. Then been in real trouble.
I've had to stand my ground against a few bear, and i have to tell ya, it's some scary
crap. I'm just glad both times they decided to back off.
One charged and stopped about 12-15' away before it changed it's mind.
Yelling and being loud was a very wise choice. It would of done more to scare off what
ever it was than the bbgun ever could.
With more and more population moving into what use to be woods, animals are getting much
braver and bolder and going into populated area's where they didnt use to go.
Good luck hunting, hope you get a taste for it and make it a tradition. Learn all you can,
and be the best you can. (not biggest trophy hunter, ethical hunter.).
I'm glad your story did not end up with a trip to the ER from the animal.

Screw the military that defends your right to carry a weapon? Screw the military that defends your freedom, and allows you to go about your live as you see fit to live it?
I'm lost for words, other than that you're coming across a little petty and insulting to that other poster.
You didn't aim, you took several shots at what you thought you heard. How can you aim at what you cannot see?
And I'm British, so is there a point to you asking him that too?edit on 21-2-2013 by infiltraitor because: (no reason given)
Actually it wasn't fine. It was stupid. Shows a disregard for firearm safety. What if it was bear and you took out its eye/ Would that make you feel good or something? Don't shoot at things you can't identify and don't shoot animals you don't plan on eating.
