>ITT: stories from your childhood with bb guns or air rifles
I was 8 years old, and I had a red ryder and my cousin had one of those BB guns you pump multiple times.

He was to pump his 4 times to match the strength of the red ryder. After I hit him about 18 times in the chest from 25m he got pissed and pumped his 14.

Me being the dumb ass kid I was and didn't quite understand the concept of good cover, I stopped dead in my tracks right in the open between a barn and a tractor. I saw the BB fly toward me and it curved before it hit me.

I now have a BB in my neck, in that tendon thing that goes behind your jaw down to your collar bone.

I can pull it out and roll it around, but it pulls back into place.

I had a doctor attempt to remove it. The guy was a vietnam veteran with 2 purple hearts and had plenty of service medals and a bronze star.

Without saying a fucking thing he just jabbed anesthetic in my neck and sliced me open, when he couldn't get the BB out he said "Trying to get this bastard is a waste of time, just leave it."
Not my story as such.
>my daughter turned five and I have her a daisy red rider
>we went out side and I set up a cardboard box with an archery target on it.
>I went through the NRA firearms safety course with her, the parts of the rifle, how it worked and how to aim.
> we loaded up the little hopper and she took her first shot standing unsupported. Six o'clock, five inches from the bull at twenty yards.
> I coached her through a few refills of the hopper, watching closelyto see if she was safely handling the rifle and correcting her form as required. all was good.
> I left her with a milk carton pack of a thousand BBs telling her to have fun and get me when she had had enough and we will clean the red rider together.
> she came in about an hour later, not to get me but to raid the first aid kit. I asked her what was up and she said blister than ran out side again.
> along about lunch time I went out to see how she was going. The first thing I noticed was the target was now out at fifty yards with the centre shot out. The second thing was the half dozen band aids wrapped around her right hand where the leaver had rubber her skin raw.
>the poor kid had shot about nine hundred BBs, stopping only to reload or apply band aids.
> she aplied safe and set the red rider down than turned to me and said, can I get a pistol too?
>Fuckin around with some BB guns one afternoon target practicing
>Time to go back inside!
>Follow along
>Stop and shoot at little white plastic thing few feet away
>It bounces off and hits me in the crotch
>it lost enough energy to give me a little bit of a shock instead of removing one of my testicles
>Never mishandled it ever again

I got lucky playing the stupid card and i learned from it.
I got a red ryder when I was 7, pretty fun considering I lived in bumfuck nowhere Scotland.
Anyways I went around with that fucker for a month before i finally got in trouble with it.

I was running around about two blocks from my house and i had some spare money, So i decided to go to the local store about three blocks away. I was making my way there when a lady stopped me and grabbed the BB gun. I immediately thought she was a rapist and shot her in the leg and ran all the way to the Western Isles hospital to hide. I ended up running through town again to get to my house in Knock.
>I immediately thought she was a rapist.
I think this about all woman who approach me so I kick them in their front butt and punch them hard as fuck in their dirty pillows.
>tfw never had a carbine action 200 shot range model air rifle
Also, daisy apparently never sold any gun in the same configuration as the one in the movie.

I once shot a little white moth out of the air. Hit the body so the two little wings fluttered down.

I shot a bumble bee off a flower once.

And a big ass spider off of the roof of my grandparents house.

I also shot a frog in the head..the way it jumped at the sound of the shot, but then just went limp still haunts me. I never shot a living thing again without the intention of eating it.

I was a little shitbag I guess.

Other than that I spent a lot f time shooting cans, little paper targets. I remember my cousin and I would compete and then march around in the woods with out Red Ryders and pretend to be soldiers. good times

>I go to my window and level my rifle at this sorry sack of shit.
>time slows.
>I pull back.
>I see the little steel ball exit the end of my gun.
>I sometimes wonder what that birds last thoughts were but I hope that whatever it felt was pure malice.
>it didnt deserve to die happy.
>it turns its head back just in time to meet me with its cock-eyed gaze.
>The BB hits it right in the neck and blood is misted onto the post and the birds corpse falls to the other side of the fence.
>I have accomplished my duties.

Come to find out that my neighor who was the same age as me saw me do this entire process and I got called Dahmer at school for a while.
Fuck I hope my daughter grows up to be this cool
>one summer shoot a carton of 10,000 bbs
>get bored of shooting soda cans with bb gun
>shoot squirrel while its chilling on a tree
Sorry squirrel

>just got co2 pistol
>shooting pellets at target attached to tree
>pellet ricochets and hits my chest

And that's my uneventful life.
My dad got me a 1000fps break action airgun. I fucked up so many birds and squirrels and trashed em. I was a fucked up kid. Literally any single living animal that entered my yard got shot at. Most of the time killed. Sometimes I would throw the corpses over the fence behind the back of the neighbors shed. cold hearted mother fucker I was
A kid bought a red ryder, and got bored one day and started shooting off 30-30 bullets with it. Now mind you, a .177 red ryder can't chamber a centerfire cartrage, but if you point the barrel straight up you can balance the bullet so when fired, the bb reaches the muzzle and sets off the firing pin. The problem is that the cartridge doesn't so much shoot as explodes, and one day this kid tried it, the case ruptures, and he catches a piece of shrapnel in his neck and bleeds out on the way to the hospital.
I played with my grandads .22 cal Benjamin pellet gun a lot growing up,
I still use it to kill birds that get into our hangar at the airfield.

I used to hunt for rabbits, squirrels, and roadrunners, and I would carry extra lead pellets in my mouth because it was easier then keeping them in my pockets. That probably wasn't the best of ideas.

There was one time I was shooting at a railroad tie and a ricochet came back and wizzed right by my face. But I just kept shooting not giving a fuck. Another ricochet came back and hit just a couple mm left of my left eye and got stuck in the skin.
I got close to loosing an eye that day.
why only childhood?

You should go to a real doctor. Just because the bum behind 7/11 everyone calls Doc doesn't make him a real one.
Whenever I set off rifle or pistol rounds with a bb gun it just popped about the same force and noise as a small firecracker.
Now, shoving the bullet into the ground first, leaving the case exposed on the other hand...
My daughter is only one. I hope to have moments like these.
My parents wouldn't let me have a BB gun, or have anything that "glorified violence".

Couldn't play as a knight, or a pirate, or a cowboy, or a cop, or a soldier like normal kids do. I was allowed to ride my bike and watch TV ONLY when they were there. If they saw something on TV that was questionable or violent, they'd cover my eyes. They did this until I was 14 or so.

When I was 15, my best friend got an airgun for his birthday, and I snuck out to his house and learned marksmanship in his backyard taught by his dad. I asked my parents to stop treating me like a child, and my mom wouldn't let me go to my friend's house anymore. After I snapped and got into an argument, my mom slapped me repeatedly and shoved me into the washing machine.

When I got my lisence at 16, I got a job, bought a beater car after 2 weeks of work (1994 Toyota Corolla with 200k miles on it for $800), and ran away and contacted CPS and got emancipated.

My friend bought me an airgun (Benjamin 397) after I got settled in my own place.
Hah, got em.

If this is true, good on ya m8. Hope you learned what not to become in life.

I got one about something i like to call Frank, i was about 11 maybe 12, living in the Pocono mountains i had seen and heard some strange going ons but it all came to a head for one week i had to mount a guerrilla war on what i presume to this day to be a Large bipedal rabbit who i named Frank.

It all started one foggy day i was out operating operationally with my Daisy level action and i was standing on a bale of hay when about 150 feet away in the treeline i saw a figure with large floppy ears on its head, so doing what i thought was the best course of action i shot at it but neigh did i hit it, i did however ended up scaring it to bolt between trees as i continued to fire on it with tiny copper balls of doom.

Then i proceeded to shit some bricks and ran back to the house to tell my parents who didn't believe it and for a week i saw him in various spots that were closer to the house each day till one day i saw him in my driveway and that was the last i ever saw of Frank the bunnyman.

>violence is bad!
>hits you

They were the biggest fucking hypocrites in the world.

As sad as it is, they did teach me how to be a functioning human being. I.E. don't be like them.

Automatic BB guns are classified as category R here in Australia, same category as machine guns, artillery and rocket launchers...

I had a lot of fun with a .22 Sharp Inova as a kid in the '80s.
Pump up pneumatic, I got really good at matching the range to the number of pumps so I did not have to keep adjusting the cheep pressed metal peep sight.
My best memory is competing in the state junior marksmanship comp. I'm up against other kids with thousand dollar competition rifles and I outshoot them with a $110 slug gun.
Lost out in the Nationals, fifth place.

I now have a Webly raider, a modern British made copy of that old gun. Still having fun and cleaning up in state level comps.

> fails 100%
> you're now browsing /k/, the most inflammatory, xenophobic gun toting boards on the internet

Very interesting how that works, and how the brainwashing didn't.

> shoved me into the washing machine.

Sorry about your parents. If it's any comfort, here's a seductive horse. Also your parents love you and wanted the best for you, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
I was charged with "discharging a firearm within city limits" when i was in 7th grade because me and my cousin decided to shoot random things at my dads apartment complex. The cops actually said "in this post 9/11 environment...". tfw it was 2003.

Ehh, personally I'd wait another year but if they're sentient enough to comprehend safety and what not, go for it.

I figured he wouldnt be strong enough to cock it by himself which would require an adult with him while he used it

Fucking greatparents m8
I got a daisy .177 when I was four. I understood proper gun saftey, but even then I learned to shoot well enough for squirrel genocide. Looking back, it seems really irresponsible that my dad gave me that. This is the man who left a loaded .44 magnum on the kitchen table while my five year old brother was alone in the room.

This wasn't with a bb gun but a 22. I was at my friends cabin shooting shit in the field and I shot a round at a curved metal item and the fucker comes back and nails me in the gut. Took out my trusty ka-bar and cut the chunk of metal out. And stuffed it with cotton soaked in alchohol. Doctors are for chumps
