Advantages of Air Guns

Some people are under the impression that air guns are toys and are only for children or for fun but not for serious use. These people may be familiar with firearms and think there's no reason to buy an air gun because they don't have any applications that would appeal to someone who uses firearms.

Although plinking with air guns can be fun, many guns are designed for competition or hunting and have the necessary power to meet the same goals as some firearms, especially within distances up to about 50 yards. They are quieter, provide excellent safety and marksmanship training options, and can usually be operated in a backyard instead of needing access to a special gun range.

Air gun loudness:

  • Generally ranges from 100 to 130dB
  • Smaller calibers are typically quieter than larger calibers
  • Big bores tend to be louder due to more power

Powerplant influences loudness:

  • CO2 pistols are very quiet
  • Spring piston rifles are louder than CO2 but quieter than PCP
  • PCP (pre-charged pneumatics) guns are loudest
  • General rule: greater power leads to louder noise

Firearms typically range from 140dB for a .22 caliber rifle to 165dB for a .357 Magnum to 170dB for a long-range hunting rifle. For context, people begin feeling pain with noises above 130dB, and instant hearing damage occurs at 140dB.

When shopping, you can see the loudness of the air gun you're considering. Look for these terms in the specifications under "Loudness":

  • Low
  • Low-Medium
  • Medium
  • Medium-High
  • High

In addition to air guns being an ideal choice for something like backyard pest control because of their lower noise and increased safety compared to firearms, they are typically less expensive than a firearm and the ammo is far cheaper and not normally subject to the same types of shortages or restrictions as firearm ammunition, so you can accomplish more shooting for less money.

Some air guns are very flexible and can be easily tuned for different uses. Other air guns are designed to closely replicate a firearm in look and feel and operation, so shooters can stay in practice when they can't use a firearm or can't get ammo. When you consider all the advantages an air gun has to offer, it's clear that they're exceedingly useful and deserve a place in anyone's collection.

Once you use the resources on our site to help you pick the perfect air gun to buy online, you'll be sure you're getting a fantastic gun that will serve you well for years to come.
