    CB Caps For Self Defense ??

    Aim For The Left Nostril ~ Not The Right One.

    I was just rooting around through some of my old stuff & came across a pile of these old, tiny, .22 CB Caps. I've not shot any of them in a while! They were always FUN to shoot.

    Information On CB Caps

    They are still available. BUY SOME!
    CB caps can be used in any .22 rimfire rifle or handgun.
    In a .22 rifle they sound just about like an air gun.
    In a revolver or pistol they "crack" a little louder.
    You need to hand single feed them into any pistol as they (of course) will not operate the slide.
    They are just a round lead ball or tapered lead cone pushed into a cartridge case made of copper. I think the cartridge cases might actually be percussion rifle caps. (I'm not sure about that though)
    You can also get larger length .22 longs as ultra low velocity CBs
    I don't think there is any powder in there but I'm not sure. I think they just use MORE primer compound but no powder.
    They move at around 800 + or - FPS. Folks use them for indoor target shooting.
    They are very good for hunting moles and grasshoppers And...if you are a real good shot ~ plinking at wasps "on the wing"
    THEY ARE FUN TO SHOOT!
    If I remember correctly they will not quite penetrate a 1" pine board.
    Anybody...Correct me if I'm wrong on any of the above info. Thanks.

    Only be careful. My friend shot 1 thru his anschutz target rifle. The bullet didn't exit the barrel .too tight of bore.
