They will go through paper, but that's about it.
Ahh ok, gotcha thanks.

I got a net rig that has holes where I can hang paper targets and the plastic bbs go through into the net catching them. Makes it easy to gather them and reload.

Ive got a few, you can shoot 4in groups at 50 yards. Not as accurate as a real rifle but a lot cheaper when it comes to ammo. Also a ton of fun having fights with them in the woods. Just remember your safety glasses

I play on occasion, though I haven't in awhile. Most of the guys have switched to paintball, but its the same gist. We play on a couple acres property, with fields woods, and trails. I mainly do pyrotechnics (smoke bombs, airsoft/paint grenades, etc.). I find it to be an enjoyable hobby, whereas some people say that they don't know why you spend so much on "toy guns" that shoot plastic BBs. I think that airsoft and paintball are about as close to real combat as you can get, and it actually incorporates strategy and tactics (as a matter of fact, we actually had a hostage negotiation in our last game). Fun stuff

Here is my son's full auto AK-74. Its not that accurate but fun to shoot.
If i want accurate i play with his Colt AR 10 pump BB gun. In the past I have always said i would not buy an AR but after shooting this bb gun, it prompted me to get one.

I seem one of those at the Walmart by me when I picked up my Crossman T4. I was actually thinking of getting that since its only $99.00 and would be about as close to an AR as I'm going to get and still be able to (legally) shoot gophers with it and it still be ethical. Just out of curiosity, what's the FPS on that one? I've been told and am starting to believe that the Canadian version of pellet rifles are usually detuned.

I wish I could get better pictures, but the computer we have no wont register the camera being plugged into it.

The first is of the T4, some plastic parts, but still comes in weighing 27oz. Shoots steel 4.5mm BBs or 4.5mm pellets out of an eight shot magazine and uses 12 gram Co2 cans averaging 64 shots each.

The second is my AK47, I don't remember the company that makes it right now. But it's a pretty sweet set up and seriously makes me want to invest in its real counter part. This gun is just about all metal, only thing that isn't is the stock. That's polymer with a thin rubber pad for traction.

The third is a buddy's Ares M14. I'm honestly not much a fan of the set up its got at all, they made it near impossible to use the read sight. Almost have to mush your face into the cheek rest to even have a chance of using the peep sight. This one is entirely metal, both shoot a 6mm BB on semi and full auto.

Wow.....for that you'd need a firearms license to own up here. Anything over 500FPS is some how classified as a firearm. The version we've got here is stated to shoot 495fps but from the one video I seem as a review, it was closer to 430.
