Strafer Mk2 hidden expence

This area is for the discussion of BB or airsoft sub machine guns, and or other small arms such as pellets. No home made BB or airsoft guns should ever be used in a match where you shoot other people... they are too powerful.

you gotta go with daisy zinc-plated bb's. they are 6 bucks for 6000 of them. i know what you are going through, i just bought two 2500 packs for 10 bucks. you have to find the daisy bb's. most of the time they are at walmart. you will probably find them at fred meyer, but i'm not sure. for damn sure, this is a very well hidden expense, and can lead to major money losses if you dont shop around.

copperheads are more uniform and dont have flat spots like some of the daisys do. 6000 of them for $6 at walmart. I feel your pain man! I need to make a bb trap of some sort, but Sometimes its just fun to shoot in a random direction.

i made a trap i reuse about 90 % of my bb's, i guess
i don't miss it to much
it's a 2 foot cube with a missing face, in the front of course, it has padding, foam foam and more fome, covered with a tough towel. Then at the front face i use corrugated cardboard as a false bottom, once they hit that their speed is killed and can't penetrate on the way out. Then u just take the false bottom off and pick up all those bb's.
