Plus the plastic 6mm bb's won't bust out a car window.

Walmart has a airsoft spring Beretta for like $10, I may get that. If it doesnt work, I can always take it back.

I punched holes in a milk jug at 50 yards with my Tommy gun, but its a heck of a lot more powerful than a $10 pistol.

Yeah. I used the pistol mostly to get the birds that kept making a home out of the space under my window air conditioner. Hit the window a few.times and it glanced off. Me and my friends also used to have air soft gun wars in a field using our cars and my 99 Malibu took the bb's well. I don't recall anyone's cars getting messed up. Plus if I'm thinking of the right gun, your tommy gun should shoot three to four hundred feet per second. Most spring air soft pistols only get up to 200 to 250 feet per second. The $10 one probably not even that.

I work at sports authority, "dedicated to the dedicated" and I steel these things to kids and adults all the time for shooting pests and/or their friends.

Default Owl Decoy

Ive used the owl decoy to limited success - problem is they learn but it will buy you some time. Like the snake story which was priceless !

Ages ago, a science teacher told us a grumpy old man got tired on having teenagers lean on his car so he hooked up a battery. Everything that touched his car got mild "zap." No idea if it's an urban legend or a lawsuit waiting to happen but it ought to make a good story either way.

I don't know why i didn't think of this before, but you could "flip" this bird, maybe with a modified mouse trap.

Yeah, I thought they were weak as well, until I let one loose on "full auto" and stuck 3 little plastic bb's into the sheet rock in my hallway at home.

WAY more powerful than I had assumed.
