Whether plinking or hunting small game, an air rifle does an excellent job. These air-powered guns do not use traditional ammunition, but propel pellets at high speeds instead.
Though inexpensive and simple to operate, spring-loaded types can be noisy and only allow one shot at a time. A similar option, gas ram models nevertheless less recoil. Two other popular types include CO2 powered types and pre-charged pneumatic models. Save a bullet; shoot an air rifle.
