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.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
