PEL­LETS FIRED BY COM­PRESSED AIR

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Animals Rescued -

The weapon seen in the park on Tues­day, above, is be­lieved to be a BB gun. BB guns use com­pressed air and gases in or­der to fire a small pel­let or pro­jec­tile from the bar­rel. The gases are kept in an air­tight capsule un­til the user pulls the trig­ger, and the gases are re­leased, fir­ing the pel­lets.

One UK-based man­u­fac­turer has a va­ri­ety of air­soft and BB ma­chine guns for sale, rang­ing in price from £20 to £280 – some in­clude full sniper-type tele­scopic sights.
