Well i traded a kid a set of old golf clubs(we had them priced for 40 bucks in our garage sale) that had been collecting dust for a thompson bb gun. I don't really know much about it other than i would love to have a real thompson. I'm sure he got a better deal than me but i was happy and the kids were super excited to have a bb gun to shoot. Here are a few pictures! I would like another bb gun for my daughter maybe a pink ar or something like that. Lets see your bb guns! Here is tosha shooting the Thompson bb gun the gun was a little heavy so i helped them hold it. the length of pull was a little long for them My daughter My son I have always called them bb guns but maybe they are called airsoft... this thing doesn't take regular bb's i don't think. I remember bb's being smaller. This one takes 6mm plastic bb's. I bought a small box at walmart. Just need to make a little bullet trap. Will cardboard hold up to these things to catch the bb's for reuse or do i need something a little more sturdy?
