BB guns have evolved significantly in recent years in terms of their technology and production. Despite the widespread assumption that these guns are mere "toys," taking a closer look at the range of models available reveals that this could not be further from the truth. Indeed, many firearms companies have granted licenses to bee gun producers so there is a large selection of replicas on the market.

It is also important not to mistake bb guns for airsoft guns, as the two items are entirely different. Airsoft fire plastic BBs, are primarily designed to be used between players with the correct safety equipment in place. On the other hand, BB guns shoot metal (steel, copper, metal alloy) BBs (generally around .177 caliber), generally used for target shooting or plinking. Also, airsoft guns are required to have an orange tip to indicate they are not weapons, while BB guns are not.

FAQs

What does BB stand for in a BB gun?

Despite being known mistakenly as bearing balls, ball bearings, or bullet balls, the term actually comes from the size of shot intended for use within shotgun shells which were between the "B" and "BBB" sizes. This ammunition was used by the Markham Air Rifle Company, the first BB gun producer, with the introduction of one of the civilian-use air rifles in 1886. While Daisy later changed the BB used in the rifle to a "round shot," the name remained as it had been embraced by shooters.

Are BB guns safe?

Many of our customers started out with a BB rifle such as the popular Daisy Red Ryder and have built their collection to include firearm replicas from SIG Sauer or Glock. Shooting a BB gun safely can provide years of fun and enjoyment and are designed with similar safety features that are found in firearms, such as a safety mechanism. While a BB gun should not be used for self-defense, if mishandled or used improperly you can be injured from one. Remember, they are different from airsoft guns which are often safer because they use plastic bbs, not metal.

It is important for all shooters to follow safe shooting practices as well as only use them for their designed purposes: plinking cans, firearm training, teaching young shooters the basics of shooting in a supervised environment.

When were bb guns first invented?

Unfortunately, there is no clear record of when they first became available, however, we do know that the technology to make one dates back to 1580 and the Bellows airgun. Airguns were regularly used for hunting from the 17th to 19th centuries, and even the Austrian army employed the Girardoni air rifle during this period, reported to have ranged between 125 to 150 yards, and sometimes more.

Ultimately, it was the Markham Air Rifle Company who released the first spring-piston air rifle designed for use as a youth training gun in 1886, followed by the Plymouth Air Rifle Company, which later became Daisy, two years later with their full metal air rifle that shot BBs.
