  • Advantages of Shooting Airguns
    Most airguns are quieter than firearms. Depending on local laws, you can usually shoot airguns in places off limits to firearms.
    Compared to shooting firearms, airgun ammo is pennies on the dollar.
    Airguns are safer because pellets have a shorter range than firearm ammo.
    Airguns are inherently more accurate than firearms. In fact, many firearm competitors practice with airguns!
    Purchase with ease
    Airguns are unregulated by the federal government, and most state and local governments don't regulate them.
  • Hunting with Airguns
    That's right. You can hunt with airguns! There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the right airgun to hunt with. Read the articles and view the videos below to help you make the right decision.

  • Cleaning
    Unlike firearms, airguns don't require regular cleaning. When you do clean them, use airgun-specific tools, lubes and cleaners. More info below.

  • Airgun Powerplants
    Precharged pneumatic (PCP) Powerplant
    Possibly the oldest type of airgun powerplant, PCPs store an air charge in a reservoir, then release part or all of it when the gun is fired. Most target guns, precision sporting rifles, and big bore airguns are PCPs. This powerplant is also referred to as compressed air.

    Pump Pneumatic Powerplants
    Just like the PCPs, these are also filled by a high pressure reservoir. There are two types of pump pneumatic airguns, multi-pump and single stroke.

    Single-stroke pneumatic:
    Perfected in the 1960s, single-strokes are just what they sound like-guns that use a single pump stroke to pressurize the firing charge. If you attempt a second stroke, the air from the first stroke will be released.

    Multi-pump pneumatic:
    Multi-pumps date back to at least the 18th century but were reborn in America at the start of the 20th century. They require multiple pumps of a built-in lever to compress an air charge for firing - typically from three to eight or even ten. Almost all multi-pumps are single-shots.

    CO2 Powerplant
    Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a refrigerant gas and is sensitive to extreme temperatures. At 70 deg. F, it produces 853 psi (pounds per square inch) of pressure. If introduced into a gun as a liquid, CO2 provides steady power for many shots. Because it's a refrigerant, CO2 will cool the parts of a gun as it passes through at firing. As the gas becomes colder, the pressure drops and, below 50 deg. F, CO2 is not very efficient.

    CO2 was first used in the middle 1800s, but Benjamin and Crosman both pioneered its use in the 20th century. Liquid CO2 is put into convenient Powerlets (a term coined by Crosman, the company that invented the 12-gram size used in airguns) for ease of handling. It can also be put into guns from large bulk tanks. Normally, CO2 provides the lowest power potential of all the airgun powerplants, unless something drastic is done. The most practical way to get higher power from CO2 is to use a heavier projectile and a longer barrel.

    Spring Powerplants
    This is a self contained power source in which a powerful spring is compressed when cocked. They're simpler in construction than the gas guns, with fewer moving parts, but they also have less potential for power than pneumatics and even CO2. Still, shooters like them for their simplicity.

    A type of airgun powerplant in which the air that propels the projectile is rapidly compressed at the moment of firing by a spring-driven piston. Also called spring-air.

    How a spring-piston airgun works
    Gas spring:
    They're also called gas rams and gas struts. Gas springs are longer-lived than coiled steel springs, plus they can be rebuilt. They act faster than coiled steel springs and have less mass, which lowers both the recoil and vibration of the gun. On the outside, gas spring guns look exactly like guns with steel springs.
