It has already been stated that the shooter should wear protective eye glasses when pistol shooting. This is particularly important when firing BB pistols, due to the much greater risk of ricochet presented by BB projectiles. When considering the pistol you wish to buy, it is worth noting that many club ranges will not allow the use of steel BBs on the range as they consider the potential risk of ricochet too great for safety. A lot of pistol shooters who wish to fire a blowback style pistol think that their only option is to go for a BB pistol, but though the majority of blowback pistols on the market do use BB ammunition there is also a couple of extremely good blowback pistols that fire pellets, these being the Beretta Storm PX4 and the Magnum Research Desert Eagle.

As with most things, the beginner learns on a more basic model and, having gained some degree of proficiency, moves up to the more sophisticated and expensive models. Its purpose being precision shooting, the Compact is obviously a very accurate pistol.
