My say on this is the g-36 and I'm the same age I'm trying to save up for a fa-mas (the gun that you have for the pic) and the g 36 they are to highly capable guns that shoot plastic bbs but there are different qualities sports quality which is the best for biathlon's but not for fun,then there is pro which is medium in this price range about 50 to 200 $ which is for those that like high performance backyard warfare,then there is the bottom that is for the not so picky and just have a finger glued to the trigger and like to shoot for no reason and yes all guns are dangerous but its how you use it that matters hope ive helped

My dear of course BB guns are dangerous. You are mistaking BB guns with airsoft guns.They have a capacity to fire at 1000 fps( about 680 miles an hour. These guns have skin piercing abilities and are dangerous. As you are in an age when you do not require I would highly not recommend you to buy these. A much better option is airsoft guns.

BB guns are just as lethal as any firearm in that they can project a BB just as fast as a handgun or even a rifle bullet.  Even lever action spring loaded BB guns can project a BB with enough force to penetrate someone's body.  The more advanced air BB guns will generate enough velocity where they can easily surpass any handgun velocity and even surpass many rifle velocities, thereby making them just as lethal, if not more.  

There is no such thing as a BB gun that won't do any serious harm.   Please try to understand this.  Otherwise, you might just be careless and either put out someone's eye, cripple them or kill them.  

I'm an NRA certified instructor, having taught firearms safety for many years.  No BB gun ever made is a toy.   Every single one made was and still is, a potentially deadly weapon.

I'm thinkin all the people who say bb guns are dangerous, have never used or gotten shot by one. No they are not dangerous. The people using them are. A bb gun does sho people in the eye. Someone aims and fires a bb at someones eye.

Yes, they are. (Hint anything ending in gun is dangerous.) There are even downsides to water guns.

If you get shot in harmful spots such as your eyes or inside your ear, it could hurt you but if you get shot on your bare skin, it might sting but not that bad, maybe a bruise
