    Sounds like it might have been a co2 Dan Wesson. Either the journalist is confusing BBs with ball bearings (most likely), or the fool actually loaded ball bearings into the shells. Not good.

    "A man who was spotted by motorists pointing a gun at passing cars from a bridge over the M50 motorway later told gardaí he was “bored and messing,” a court has heard"...

    "...pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to possession of a black gas powered revolver handgun and six brass bullets containing ball bearings."

    "...apprehended a short time afterwards by the armed support unit. His backpack was searched uncovering a 6mm calibre air gun, ammunition and gas cylinders. No ammunition was in the chambers."

    Guy was an 18 year old from care. He had a horrific life before and now craves jail or some other highly organised routine
