Air-powered guns offer many useful possibilities for informed shooters. First, we can mail-order both airguns and their ammunition, which don’t fall under the jurisdiction of BATF (check your local regulations). Airguns also tend to be quiet – a useful advantage if low-impact hunting is necessary. The right choice will have adequate power for small game, and possibly even deer. From here it gets better since uninformed people will lump them all together as simple BB guns. In fact, airguns still maintain social acceptance not only domestically, but also around the globe. As a result, sophisticated designs have evolved with outstanding performance.
Some are even sold in head-turning calibers like 9mm, .45, or .50-caliber! On a smaller and more affordable scale, we can also improve our all-around shooting skills while having some low-cost fun. Since an understanding of the various power-plants is essential, this thorough and complete guide will provide the necessary information for its purchase and use.
“Being raised around firearms, the words “Air Gun” incorrectly symbolized toys to me. Like many others, I never placed them in the “Firearms” category until about a decade ago. I was sent a Talon SS rifle to test and my eyes were thrust wide open the first time I handled it. It was a high-quality, fine-tuned machine, with amazing power and accuracy. I haven’t looked back since, and now hold air guns in the highest regard. Reading the pages of Air Rifles: A Buyers and Shooters Guide is a journey through the transformation I underwent and a reminder of all the years I lost enjoying these incredible machines. Whether it be for training, recreation, teaching, or hunting, there are several makes and models to choose from that will hit the mark. “Air Rifles, A Buyers and Shooters Guide” has again enlightened me to opportunities I have not had the pleasure of experiencing, and I plan on expanding the gun collection with a few new examples contained in these pages very soon. Open your mind as you turn these pages and prepare for a new journey through the shooting sports.”
