Air or pneumatic guns are very common today and are used for various purposes, but in the following lines we will find out what are the features of this weapon. How to choose, what types and brands are offered, are they for self-defense, where to make quality brand decisions?
What is an airgun
In appearance it is almost indistinguishable from the firearm, but from a constructive point of view the two types are radically different. The pneumatic analogue has no fire cartridges in its magazine and has completely different firing mechanisms. There is no detonation, which is inherent in fireguns. This is the reason why one weapon is called an air weapon and the other a firearm. In the first case are used different types of firing mechanisms.
When to use it
Most likely, most of you, when mentioning air guns or rifles, make an association with the analogues used in amusement parks. Today, the variety and improvements in technology and mechanisms of operation have changed so much that the precision of the shot and its trajectory are much more accurate. This allows the use of air weapons both for hunting small game and for entertainment or sports.
This type of air weapon is also used for self-defense, precisely because of its resemblance to real firearms. Usually, when you take out such a gun in front of the aggressor, he voluntarily gives up the attack. Of course, you can inflict threatening damage with a shot, but not kill. For this reason the purchase of such products does not require permits.
How to choose
Air guns use steel pellets, which have a caliber corresponding to the caliber of the barrel. They are characterized by increased compactness and easily breaking of glass containers and surfaces, for example, so if you need such a solution, then this type of weapon is certainly for you.
If your goal is precision and increased accuracy, you can opt for rifled barrel models. They are suitable for shooters who are not professionally engaged in sports purposes. From the point of view of the type of charging, you have a choice between manual or automatic solutions, for which you can probably guess the differences, so we will not dwell on them in detail.
