If the gun is cocked, the manual safety will not engage. For the safety to engage, the gun must be uncocked. If you cock the gun and then try to engage the safety, you will still be able to pull the trigger...and the gun will shoot the projectile!
Each shell should be loaded with one steel BB and then loaded into the gun's cylinder.
It's not gold plated, but it is gold colored! If you like snubbies, get this Dan Wesson revolver! The shells look like loaded firearm cartridges. Instead of primer, powder and a bullet, just load each one with a steel BB. The speedloader is a great tool that'll help you load fast so you can spend more time shooting and less time loading the shells.
This Dan Wesson CO2 BB revolver has a 2.5" barrel and textured grips. It's a great piece if you enjoy shooting firearms but don't want to go to the range for every session.
When shooting a BB gun, everyone in the vicinity should wear safety glasses. Never shoot at hard objects. Steel BBs easily ricochet, so everyone in the area must wear safety glasses. Remember to remove all pets before commencing to shoot.
