Hi, stupid question. If i am doing some picking at targets in my back garden and have a strong net at the back that caches the bb's can they be reused? or will used bb's loose the polish and damage the gun?

Also is it 100% legal to shoot in my back garden despite what my next door say?

I wouldn't reuse, better to be safe than sorry.

I'm fairly sure you can so long as no bb's leave your property. But Im not sure ago wait for more replies.

yeah you are allowed to sh*t in your garden. me and a mate had the problem before where we were shooting targets that were place against his back wall and the women behind his house called the police, sure enough armed police turn up and they said not illegal to shoot in our garden, but to insure that no pellets/BB's were to leave the confines of the garden and to insure proper caters were in place to prevent ricochets from bouncing out the garden and potentially hurting a house pet.

put a piece of carpet behind whatever you are shooting.
prevents ricochets and is completely BB proof.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

Juist curiois, what guns were you using and were they 2 tone. Could the women see the guns or just hear them? Also were they shooting at fully auto ?

Also, how many of the police turned up, flashing lights?


Rock-climby-Dave, Thanks mate.

This is a bit old now, but I can confirm the above.

As long as no pellets leave the boundaries of your property or in any way impact upon anyone who did not consent to being shot, you are 100% legal.

As long as they're not within view of any random passing cars etc, you should be fine. I've had plenty of dealings with the police and airsoft, including being detained very briefly under the Terrorism Act at a train station; ten minutes of straight up sweet talking and declaring my rights and the officers were promising to come airsofting at some point, I was released without trouble.

I wrote a guide to transporting airsoft guns a while ago HERE a lot of the advice about dealing with the police can, with some common sense be utilised in almost any airsoft situation where you may be confronted. If you have any more questions, or my response is a bit confusing (I've been up since 5am and do a very physical job, so a bit sleepy), please PM me and I'll get you up to speed properly :)
