Air Guns

BB guns, pellet guns and airsoft guns are considered air guns. BB guns shoot .177 caliber metal BBs that are normally used for target shooting. Pellet rifles are available in both .177 caliber and .22 caliber and are used for target shooting and small game hunting. The spring action of many pellet rifles can fire a pellet at the same velocity as a .22 short bullet from a rimfire rifle. Airsoft guns shoot plastic BBs and are used for MIL-SIM battles similar to paintball in which the players shoot each other with the BBs. Protective gear should be worn at all times during Airsoft battles.


BB guns vs. Pellet Guns

BB guns generally shoot at a slower velocity than pellet rifles. They also shoot metal spherical projectiles, or BBs, which are used for target shooting rather than small game hunting because of their inability to penetrate skin. Pellet guns generally shoot at 800 FPS or faster, and some even shoot faster than the velocity of rimfire .22 rifles. The pellets are usually pointed and offer better penetration for hunting scenarios.

CO2 Air Guns

CO2 air guns use compressed carbon dioxide as the propellant which fires their bullets. This allows the user to fire automatically or semi-automatically without the need to pump or cock the rifle. The only drawback of CO2 guns is that you have to buy not only more ammo when you run out, but you also must stock up on CO2 cartridges as well. Umarex is a very popular air gun company which makes CO2 gun replicas of the most popular firearms in the world.

  • hotrod (Illinois) - awesome pistol


    This pistol is definitely not a toy!! Lots of power and within a few shots I had everything sighted in, and was grouping my shots about 3" at twenty yards. want to put a scope on it, then I'll be shooting the wings off of flies.

  • Jack W Davis (Champaign, IL) - Fulfilled my dream


    KOF3241 Well, my childhood dream of owning a Red Ryder BB gun has finally come true. As a child, dear old Mom would never see her way clear to give little Jackie his own Daisy. So, bless your soul, Mom, I finally got my baby! Granted, I'm almost 70 years old, but I love my gun, and, so far, I've not shot my eye out. Love it!
