I get these little bastards all over the back porch, I'd like a BB gun that I can tape a flashlight to the end of the barrel and do some killin. What guns are with a shit anymore? I'm not sure if airsoft is accurate enough at 20-30 feet to reliably hit a cockroach size object.

Well, I was sitting on my porch, with a drink, and I see these fucking cockroaches scurrying across the other end of the deck. A BB gun, some beers, and some cockroaches would make a fun evening.

The old training office at work had a lot of mice. I used to hunt them with a SIG P228 with a Simunitions kit in it. A good hit would kill 'em dead.

Damage anything behind it? I have flimsy siding to protect.

Sims would probably dent cheap siding, but a BB gun would be even worse.

I was thinking a one pump red rider would work, but all the reviews I've been reading say they quality is for shit.

I shoot mine all the time at leas 300 rounds or so since I got it. I got mine for 20.00 at academy so it is worth a try.

Marksman used to (or may still do) make a 1911 shaped air pistol that would shoot darts, pellets, or BB's. Should work perfectly for porch hunting, just be aware of ricocheting BB's!

eta: Found it, its a Crosman Marksman repeater pistol.

How accurate is it at 30 feet? Consistent hits on a cockroach size target?

The Red Ryders are still GTG. The ones we bought a few years ago are still working like day one. And we have been through a few 5000 boxes of bb's.

An Airsoft long gun would splat a roach, and you don't have to be worried about ricochets.

My brother has a entire pile of cheapo airsoft, you can see them curving right out of the barrel.

The well-made Airsoft stuff shoots straight and hard. I was an evaluator for the largest Active Shooter training exercise ever conducted (at the time), run by Cherokee SO. The Airsoft AK's and AR's used were accurate and left dents in the solid wood doors of the classrooms at Freedom Middle School.

The red Ryder buck (the smaller one) will put all the bbs in about a quarter size across our deck.... 15-20' or so. Surprising how accurate it is!

How much are they compared to a $30 BB gun?

You can get the daisy bucks at walmart for20$, I just bought one last week. Fun to shoot, but my suggestion would be an aeg airsoft, may not be dead on accurate, but thats what full auto is for. I have used mine to take out wasp nests, bee hives, and even rid my 2nd story overhang of carpenter bees. It takes a few shots, but I get a special feeling knowing I just gave a bee an enema with an airsoft b.b.


May be a fun job for a paintball gun too!

Hah! A good Airsoft long gun is a lot more than $30!

The upside is that you can get a flattop M4 Airsoft gun, deck it out similar to your real M4, and use it in force-on-force training.

Try a blow gun. We used them for roach eradication in the barracks in Okinawa. We rounded the dart points to keep them from sticking into the doors. The barracks had little wood, but the Sergeant Major could perceive a unauthorized hole from across the base.

Ahhhhhhh..........we could do a whole thread called "Things We Did In Okinawa"!

When the typhoons would come in, we would tie the 4 corners of a bed sheet to our wrists and ankles, with the sheet behind us. Face into the wind and form an "X" with your body. The Marine that was carried the furthest by the wind got a beer from all the other contestants.

Sorry for the sidetrack......back to your regularly scheduled thread......

For prawn simulations.
