Don't shoot this thing at any animal unless your life or someone you love is in danger from that animal.

As for burglar, if you having nothing else to defend yourself...then at least this fake gun will help you...worth taking a chance. Safe to call 911 first and then use this thing to protect yourself and your loved ones till cops show up. My 2 cents.
Just ask the question...don't worry what people will think...they are the same idiots who made you ask this question !!!

I'm curious, would one of those be strong enough to "scare" a burglar if I shot at him a couple of time? Or it will just hurt enough to make them even more mad?
You'll do more damage if you throw it at him.

Is it still the blowback version?
Wish this was clear. The image shows non-blowback version and there is no mention of it in description. In the old thread it appeared everyone received the blowback version.

Secondary question if they are too weak: Would they be fine for shooting at squirrel WITHOUT hurting them (Just annoy them)? (Goal is the get them to leave the birds feeders alone)
If your goal is to scare (a) burglar(s) away, a blank gun is far more effective as it sounds like the real thing and can wake up the neighborhood to stop the robbery in process while not shooting a projectile out which can 1. Damage your own property 2. Injure or harm someone which 3. You could avoid charges from the police for assault.

Using a BB gun will not stop a burglar, cause as soon as they hear the CO2 gas being released they will know you are holding a BB gun. Of course if they see you holding a BB gun, that might scare them off, but that would mean putting yourself in closer distance to the burglar which might not end well for you.

So, I'm pretty sure both of those things are illegal.

Lets imagine a burglar showed up to your house and you pull out your "gun". What are the odds the burglar has his own, real, gun?
Probably not that high. Unlike in the US, gun ownership is much much lower, so someone committing a B&E would likely not have a firearm. Also, using the weapon in self defense is legal, similar to using a baseball bat or kitchen dishes. And, depending on municipal laws/provincial laws, you may also be fine to shoot at rodents.

Be sure that when you shoot your gun at a burglar, anything that is going to be damaged from the bb gun will probably not be covered by your home insurance. It's safer to have things stolen and covered by your home insurance rather than escalate things with your robber and make permanent damage.
