Air pistols make use of compressed air or gas to operate the firearm. This style of firearm can also be called an air gun, a BB gun, or a pellet gun. People often use air pistols for things like small game hunting, target practice, or pest control. Air pistols don’t work well for hunting large game. Pay attention to the recommended shooting distance for the air pistol. Variable pump air pistols work better over 10-15 yards. You’ll want CO2 air pistols for shooting targets over 20-25 yards. Different models of air pistols will require different pressure on the trigger to operate. Lighter pull models will require about 1.5 lbs. of pull, while heavier pull models need about 3 lbs.
