You can use a BB gun if you hit the right spot. The problem is that most folks don't hit the right spot.

There are two opposite myths. One is that any shot, from any gun, any place on the body, means instant death. This is the movie and television myth.

The second myth, sort of related, is that some calibers/guns are worthless and won't even disturb the victim's lunch, let alone cause discomfort or kill him, but that other calibers/guns will not only kill the victim, but spread the remains over three counties and create a mushroom cloud and a radioactive wasteland.

I choose not to believe any of that kind of nonsense.

In that case, no caliber will work....

....use what you can shoot best and carry within your needs.
