    That fool behind the camera obviously doesn't know how well BB's (and bullets) ricochet off of Water.

    At that rate of consumption, even BB's are gonna come out expensive!

    Big grin factor but I think I'd rather put $5.3k towards three very nice 1911's (If'n I had it!!!).

    The first bb gun actually looks like a sand blaster setup. Compressed air on one side picking up BB's as it passes to the "gun".

    I have seen 22 minigun projects, but they work completely different.

    Interesting.

    I'd play with one. MMMMhmmmm. Not sure I could afford to keep it up, even BBs cost at that rate. But I'd give 'er a try.

    I still can't get over the thread about outlawing BB guns in Scotland!!! Not many boys grew up where I did without a BB gun, Of course we had to listen to the obligatory "You'll shoot your eye out" from our moms!!

    That just amazes me, when I was growing up (late 60's / early 70's) it was a rite of passage. Course I grew up in eastern Colorado.
