An air gun is any kind of gun that launches projectiles pneumatically with compressed air or other gases that are pressurized mechanically without involving any chemical reactions, in contrast to a firearm, which relies on an exothermic chemical oxidation (deflagration) of combustible propellants to generate propulsive energy. Both the long gun and handgun forms (air rifle and air pistol) typically propel metallic projectiles, that are either diabolo-shaped pellets, or spherical shots called BBs. Certain types of air guns (usually rifles) may also propel darts or arrows.
The first air guns were developed as early as the 1500s. They have been used in hunting, sporting and warfare. Modern air guns use one of three types of power source depending on the design: spring-piston, pneumatic, and bottled compressed gas (most commonly carbon dioxide).

want to buy a crossman 1322, preferably one that’s been upgraded but a stock one is fine too. Just to clarify, I want one in .22 caliber. Also if anyone knows any stores that still have them that would be great, can’t seem to find any online except for one listing on amazon.

my shooting gallery, in the garage.:)
The steel targets the gallery came with are for Rim-Fire .22 and my air rifle would not
knock them down. :(
I took a pattern to my friend and he made me these aluminum...
This is a pretty neat video on early 19th century air gun tech. I remember seeing something similar in a museum, and Ian references it, among the equipment Lewis and Clark had on their famous journey. Anyway, I just thought I'd pass it along in case others find it of interest. Cheers.
