extremely easy .177 darts

Unread postAuthor: covey12 » Thu Jul 08, 2010 9:24 pm

i was shooting the good old red ryder that was hanging up on my wall from ages ago at some cans in my room, when i saw my moms sewing pins, these Image the larger ones in that picture, the yellow, fit exactly perfect into a .177 caliber barrel, and with a red ryder that shoots a bb at about 280fps, put the whole needle through my wall from across the room ( 1 in. drywall) im sure that this has been posted before, but iwas astounded that something so simple actually worked well hahaha

Most drywall is either 1/2"' or 5/8", I have never seen 1" drywall.
