6mm BB Alternatives?

Unread postAuthor: nosebleedXD » Sat Aug 02, 2008 10:15 pm

yeah i can't find any good offer's on airsoft bullets

and i'm no where near 18 or whatever the age you need to be to buy

so if i can't buy it what could be a substitute for bb ammo

my barrel is 7mm i believe, maybe even smaller, im not even sure if it will fit 6 mm airsofts

its actually a curtain holder, some long tube that i bought at the dollar store

my gun is drying in the basement and its scary down there and im gonna get off soon so i will show you guys my gun tomorrow

Search the forum a bit, there are quite a few topics about Aussies using some sort of bead or whatever instead of BB bullets.

Or you could just buy some from www.trademe.co.nz and get it posted. At $6 for 2000, may as well try and get it past customs.

i do not want to risk getting caught as customs and since i live in canada, it will probably take a while for it to deliver

i checked this site

http://www.airgundepot.com/neonfire-uhc-py-p-370.html

is this a good deal?

You don't need to be 18 to buy BB bullets in Canada do you?

I thought you were Aussie, I've never heard of Canadians not being able to get BB bullets.

Just buy them online, I don't see what the problem is. Customs wont come knocking if it is infact illegal.

yeah i am not sure, i've checked walmart and stuff

the bb's are locked up in glass cases and it says you have to be 16 18 or whatever

my friends said that if your lucky and the person doesn't care, you'd be able to get the bb's

but for a gun, for sure no, unless your parents buy it for you

but you know the link, is it a good deal?

wow thats extreme security :oops: well like mr_crowley said try and order them online. hold on one sec if your parents probably order you stuff online couldnt you just get them to buy them for you at the store? or you could do what i did when i was 15 and get some random person to buy them for you(people in mexico are nice :D )

They were like that when I went to America, I just asked for them.

Those BB's you linked are fine, a bit light (only .12g) but they'll do. Buy a pre-paid credit card from the post office or whereever you get them in Canada and then buy them online using the pre-paid card.

HAHAHAHA yeah... a cool guy would probably do it for me

but again i'll just get my dad to buy it, but the one's i see at walmart are 14 dollars for 5000

and the link i sent you, 16 dollars for 10 thousand

thats a huge save

but maybe there is cheaper? or are they even good quality

@mrowley
i have money stored on my paypal, no worries

and what do you mean they were like that

14 bucks for 5000 BB's is pretty much the average price. Another kinda pointless ammo you could use are Qtips, they fit in my airsoft shotgun nicely, had to use it to fire sharpened Qtips at a foil balloon on my ceiling since BB's would just bounce off.
