    Why is it bad to shoot .177 bbs out of a slingshot
     
  2. When you have ammo too small or too large for the pouch you are using it causes safety issues. I have actually made mini shooters to shoot nothing but bbs...

    Yup, my daughters slingshot only fires BBs. Just set it up for them and no problems

    +1 to what others have already said...

    I have a couple of BB shooters just for steel BB's (airsoft BB's work too). As long as your bands and pouch are set up properly, you should have no trouble - they work great! Perfect for non-destructive indoor shooting on a cold and wet day. I have one with a magnetic pouch that holds the BB in place while you set your grip on the pouch (no, I didn't make the pouch, I bought that one).

    Take a look at my mini hammer in bamboo - it's a BB shooter with a magnetic pouch - click on the link below - you can see a BB sitting right where the magnet was laminated in the pouch (I believe it's photo #3):
