  • For fun I took the BB gun out earlier and got about a half dozen bumble bees with it. I got the idea from my uncle who has shot

    For fun I took the BB gun out earlier and got about a half dozen bumble bees with it. I got the idea from my uncle who has shot ants with his. Does anyody else ever alleviate boredom and hone their accuracy by insect hunting with an air rifle?

      I shoot at carpenter bees around the tractor shed with the BB gun until I get frustrated, then I get out the old tennis racquet and lay waste to them.

          I hear you country road about the frustrating. The percentage of shots that end in a fatality is atrocious. But I still find it its fun despite the frustration.

            Don't tell Mr. Squirrelgirl but I get a kick out of shooting those fluffy white dandelion flowers in the front yard. He thinks its the wind that's spreading the seed pods.

                When I was stationed in Milington TN., I used to shoot cockroaches that was climbing up the walls of the barracks with a BB pistol

                    As a youngster recuperating from a pretty severe burn, I used to spend hours sitting on the back porch picking off ants on the sidewalk. Didn't need to worry about ricochets as the sidewalk was next to a half mile wide river gulf.

                      Growing up in an urban setting. We would hunt ants over bait [bubble gum]. Weapon of choice a magnifying glass and a sunny day

                          Bumble bees provide pollination and are benefitial to the eco system. If you want to hunt insects that sting; shoot wasps.

                            Hunt wasps with a tea cup of regular unleaded.

                              One thing about bugs: nobody armed with anything but DDT is going to put a dent in their populations (and even then...). I prefer furry disease spreading vermin and a .22 or .380 around the farm. Never a shortage there, so plenty of fun and tactical shooting practice.
