    When I was about 8 my bb gun's main purpose during late spring and early summer was to keep birds out of mom's strawberry patch.

    The BB gun was invented in 1834 by Alphonse B.B. Zeltzer of Hanau, Germany. He built it as a weapon for the militia as a low-cost rifle that could not be detected by it's report. After arming the Malitia of Hess he realized that it was a totally ineffective weapon. After this, he went broke and wound up living the rest of his life in a lunatic asylem. In 1896 the BB gun started to be bought by parents as a "first gun" to teach children gun safety and it later became a toy as it is today.

    They are a low grade pellet gun. Get a pellet rifle it will be much more effective.

    They were developed primarily to be used by the Shah of Iran against raging camels during mating season.

    A BB gun is primarily for practicing the learning of a gun. It will kill birds and it will kill squirrels. But very few people subsist off of eating squirrels and birds the BB gun is mostly to teach a person how to fire a gun or rifle.
