why the hell did someone have a hb gun in any type of waiting room?
102 - First of all, I somehow doubt it was a ridiculously premeditated use of a pump charged pellet rifle. You'd be far more efficient by using the receptionist's pen. Secondly, there's a fundamental difference between the actual and perceived dangers of a spring/CO2 powered BB gun and an intentionally lethal weapon. It's a gun like a panda is a bear. Though that gives me an idea for a badass comic book character. So skilled, he kills with a single pellet to the eye at long range.
# 52 Why would some one have a gun lots of great reasons like hunting, competitive shooting and my personal favorite the ability to defend the life of a loved one from an illegal assault. That is just a few of the reasons to own firearms. Now as far as the kids parents go they should be held for criminal negligence breaking several laws to even get to the point ware their kid could shoot the foot of the victim.
Were you barefoot? If you weren't, I don't see how it would hurt that much.
CO2 and pump pellet weapons will put a hole in you and are pretty close to, if not exactly, rifle caliber. They're used primarily for small game hunting, so yeah, pretty powerful. However, I'm not sure i can see someone bringing a hunting rifle to a waiting room, so one would assume it was a pistol. When I was shot with a spring-fired pistol, it stung like hell but didn't break the skin. The CO2 pistol, however, lodged it semi-firmly in my skin. So yeah, "practically" a hole. Please note I did not willingly submit to being shot and tried to avoid it. I had very cruel and well-armed cousins growing up.
