Very cheap 8mm BB's

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Wed Nov 21, 2007 1:57 am

I just got a very good buy. a 12m chain of 8mm bb's :D. They are called Garland beads. You find em at any discount shop in the christmas decorations section. I roughly counted it to be about 1200+ on each chain. Should last me a while :D.


.............15min in and I've ripped off 20 beads...urgh this is gonna take a while :(........

The lack of 6mm beads was the exact reason I went to 8mm. I looked at so many different shops, saw nothing in 6mm and everying in 8mm hahaha

Ripping them off when you need a shot would be a lot easier, you could even create a little case for it on your gun lol.

Are you talking about the Warehouse?

I thought you guys had the warehouse over there or is it only a kiwi thing?
It's like a shittier Wal*mart, but hey it's cheap.

Guys just buy BB's of trademe.co.nz and get them posted, they'll get through customs.

Pretty much, if you're a bogan you go there, if you're an Islander, you go there.

No offence to anyone, just a generalization.

Hell I go there :D

Good deals.
