What to consider when buying the best CO2 BB Gun.
Velocity is the quickness of motion or the rapid movement of the pellet comes out of the gun. For your safety, most of the airguns can shoot faster than 60 metres per second (200feet/second). Some airguns have the ability to fire considerably faster, even beyond 170 metres per second (560ft/s). Few airguns can actually fire the standard 0.177 calibre lead pellet faster than 320 m/s (1,000ft/s). The velocity of BB airgun is 45 m/s (150ft/s) has skin piercing capability. When an airgun reach the velocity of 60m/s (200ft/s) can cause bone fracture. If the velocity increase, it has the potential to kill someone. The effective penetrating rage of a bb gun with a muzzle velocity of 120 to 180 metres per second (390 to 590ft/s) is approximately 18 metres (60ft). A person wearing jeans at this distance would not experience serious injury. But still the person might penetrate bare skin, and if not, it could leave a severe and painful bruise.
