A Look at the Distinct Types of Bb Rifles

by : Muna wa Wanjiru

Though a large variety of pellet guns, high-powered break-barrel guns, CO2 powered pistols are now available in the market, BB guns are still popular for the people enjoying target practice.

Pellet guns, BB guns, and airsoft guns are three distinct types of air guns. The basic distinction between them is in ammunition. Each type of gun fires a particular kind of projectile. Each kind is intended for distinct purposes such as varmint hunting, long range targeting, war replications and backyard fun etc.

A BB is nothing but a spherical bullet and has a speed less than that of pellet. Almost all BB pistols and rifles have a speed of 300-500 feet per second. If you are really crazy about having a powerful gun in your home, a BB gun is an ideal gun to enjoy the shooting without the hazards of more intense weapons.

The BB Rifles are high-quality guns which are replicas of real rifles and can only fire the specific ammunition i.e. plastic ball bearings (BB'S). Hence, you don't need a license to use air pistols and rifles. But in case of misuse, you may be imprisoned.
One must know that under the age of 17, it is against the law to hire or sell an air gun.

You should know that air guns and regular guns are used for different purposes. While regular pistols and handguns are considered in a negative manner, air guns are in a positive light. BB guns are popular with families as they can be shoot by amateurs and experts also.

While thinking about a BB gun, you may think about Daisy only. But, there are also other brands such as Walther. If you need semi-automatic and multi shot, you can have a bb gun powered by Co2. For a BB gun with a big BB reservoir to avoid frequent reloading, a BB rifle will be the right choice. Some rifles have the flexibility of shooting multiple BBs and some shoots one at a time. Some rifles are provided with lasers, sights, scopes and other additions also.
