It would suck if they bounced back and hit you, they hit hard.

I played squash with bouncing balls once, it was scary

Squash with a bouncy ball...kinda like dodgeball with a baseball :D

Bouncy balls sound fun.I guess I'll have to try them out.Shoot them at the ground and see how high up they go(The rebound might be a bummer :shock:)

It would be fun to shoot one so that it bounces back and forth between two walls that are close to each other. Throwing a bouncy ball only makes it bounce for a second or two, but shooting one would make it bounce for a really long time. :lol:

Wont it go higher if you shoot straight up? Doesn't what you said imply you got more for less, because it will loose energy when it hits the ground and it will have gained energy to go higher. You can prove this not only with the laws of thermal dynamics, but also at home, get a bouncing ball, hold it a set hight of the ground and release it, then see how high it bounces compared to how high you held it.

It would be entertaining to fire bouncing balls in a closed room and watch them bounce around.

EDIT: Lol i didn't read your post properly, i thought you said something like they would go higher if you shot them at the ground.

When i shoot them into the woods they bounce around like balls in a pinball machine and lottery hopper combined. Shot like 4 or 5 at a time into the trees, that was really neet looking.

Actually, BB stood for "ball-bearing". Even when you hear the term "BB gun", the BB stands for "ball-bearing".

We shot a bouncy-ball at a tree at an angle so that it didn't bounce back at us. It took the bark off the tree where it hit and kept flyin.

Oh ok, well i got that form wikipedia, here is the quote
""BB" in this case stands for "Ballistic Ball""

Here is the first line of the history part
"While it is often stated that "BB" stands for "ball bearing", this is not the case."

Wikipedia isn't always correct in its information. Don't always take it for the truth.

The walls would have to be concrete because they go through wooden fences.
