Raining BBs

6 posts in this topic

Quick question here for the guys who shoot more than me.

When pass-shooting geese, ducks, whatever and you have shot raining down, have any of you observed damage caused by this? And how dangerous is it for someone to be hurt?

I've hunted a lot of years, and had plenty of my own shot raining around me. It's not a big deal to me. I have even rained it down on my parent's house and our vehicles because I duck hunt behind the house on their lake... I've never seen any damage, and I consider it to be like light hail.

[PoorWordUsage] happens sometimes. Besides apologizing, if someone were to get really angry over it, I'd like to have some sort of argument that it wouldn't damage anything or anyone.

So, yea, anyone here ever actually seen damage done to vehicles, property or people when shot has rained down? Besides tempers flaring?

thanks.

I guess if someone is looking up it could hit their eye(s). I think all waterfowl hunter have had "rain" from other hunters skybusting.

Yea, getting hit in the eye is all I could come up with for actually being hurt. Chances of that are extremely slim though for anyone not wearing glasses already.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
