I currently shoot with a bb gun. It's an umarex replica of a HK USP. I know, it's a pea shooter compared to most people's collections, but it's fun for back yard shooting. Although I have my eyes on a new gun (beeman 22 cal). I found an interesting video that shows just how much more energy pellets pack than bbs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJo4Tj58wHM

A few days ago I found a site that calculates muzzle energy and my gun got something like a 2.6 where as the high end air rifles get 15-20. Makes me pretty excited to trade in my toy for a real gun. :) If you were to say that bb guns are weak, than you would be correct. Pellet guns on the other hand, maybe not so much. :)

Here is the the gun I am getting

Pretty cool I must admit. But I haven't used a bb gun since I was 11 year old. They can be fun, but getting my hands on a real rifle and putting rounds down range is much more fun lol :)

Plinking is lot of fun too, especially if you have steel targets (or plastic army men).

I have fun with anything from a pellet gun (hell, even a rubber-band gun) to a Barrett.

Oh, man, that just took me back. I remember firing a rubber band gun when i was a wee lad. I have no clue where it went, but man, that thing was a ton of fun. It might has well have been a hand canon for me. Those spiders never knew when it would come for them lol.

Right now I shoot a HK Co2 powered bb gun. I never realized this until a few weeks ago, but shooting it does cause smoke to come out the barrel.. Kind of like the real thing I guess (prob the gas cooling.) It's a very accurate replica too. I've gotten pretty good with it after firing 12,000 rounds through it. Not bad for a $50 gun.

I really want to get one of those high powered air rifles to shoot, but Im having a little trouble with the funding.. although I am accepting donations hehe. Need something to challenge me.

I had fun with an old can

I still have the one I had growing up, though it's at my parents house. It was too big to carry on a plane (and with today's TSA idiots, forget it) and heavy enough that it wasn't worth shipping. Man did I have fun with that sucker. It held about 24 rubber bands and was endlessly entertaining to shoot at the plastic army men that were assaulting my living room.

I think it'll make a great addition whenever we have our new office set up:

Don't make us annoy you to death with rubber bands and bb's. :)

Alliance should have a rubber band gun.. you know as an easter egg or something. Maybe even a pellet gun. :P

A motorised rubber band gatling gun ought to do:

Somehow it needs to be hardcoded into the MP game that devs and mods get to choose from an additional armory of absurd/goofy guns and use them against other players.

It only seems fair.
