FAQs

What are the different types of pellet guns?

There are 4 main types of pellet guns, and each has its strengths and weaknesses given its design:

  • The classic pump pneumatic is fun and functional all in one. Easy to use and learn, it is a great gun for beginners to learn with. Single-pump or multi-pump, these rifles stand the test of time.
  • Spring or gas piston pellet guns are perfect for all-around air rifles. A simple cocking mechanism provides a powerful shot that is a great option to use for both target practice and hunting.
  • With a Co2 pellet gun, you get an easy-to-use choice that offers great firing capacity. Powered by Co2 cartridges or a refillable tank, the rifles have various specifications to meet any need you're looking for.
  • Pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) pellet guns are powerful off the shelf and turned the airgun hobby into what it is today. These pneumatic rifles are perfect for target shooters and even big game hunters.

When looking at this purchase, make sure you weigh the benefits of each as you carefully consider the type of pellet guns for sale. You should also consider the caliber, from .177 up to .50 caliber, in your decision. Smaller calibers are often used for plinking or target shooting while the larger calibers will give you more knockdown power for large game ideal for hunting purposes. Regardless of which caliber or powerplant you prefer, we have a selection of models to meet your preferences.

Are pellet guns accurate?

Since their invention, pellet guns have come a long way. Nowadays, the best pellet guns can compete with center-fire guns in terms of accuracy. In order to ensure accuracy, there are a number of elements to take into account. Some accuracy issues can be solved by making some minor adjustments.

The accuracy of pellet guns depends on many factors, including the ability of the shooter. However, you must keep in mind that most pellet guns are designed for short-range shooting of up to 100 yards. The nearer you are to your target, the more accurate you will be. The farther the pellet must travel between you and the target, the greater the drop. This is simply the result of gravity. Even though long-range target pellet guns exist, they are limited to under 500 yards.

The kind of pellet you use is another significant factor. Lighter pellets with a lower drag rate built into their design will travel farther and have less drop than a heavier pellet that does not have this drag-reducing feature. There are many performance pellets available designed for speed and accuracy. The pellet should correspond to the activity for which you intend to use it. Hunting pellets and target pellets are two distinct types and will each perform differently. One is designed for paper, while the other is meant to bring down an animal. However, generally speaking, premium pellets will offer better results than low-grade ones.

Your choice of pellet gun is also a factor. Pellet pistols are generally less accurate at 50 yards than rifles. The extended barrel of the rifle offers more guidance, while a bigger powerplant provides greater force. Nonetheless, the availability of hunting pistols has changed this. If you are interested in airgun pistol hunting, we have a great selection of hunting pistols. They provide the accuracy of a rifle but in the form of a pistol.

To ensure you get the most accurate performance, practice at the desired shooting distance, keep your pellet gun properly supported, and use the appropriate pellets for your gun and purpose.

How far can a pellet gun shoot?

The distance a pellet gun can shoot varies significantly. There is no set benchmark. All components from the type, size, and even weight of the ammo, to the gun itself, affect the range. Each pellet gun is rated at a unique FPS, FPE, and caliber of ammunition it can use. As with all guns, safety must always be the primary concern. Never shoot without knowing what lies behind your intended target.

Generally, the most basic pellet gun has a normal range of 30-100 yards while even more advanced models can shoot farther. At any distance, pellet guns will have their kinetic energy and send it to the target you're aiming for. Everything depends on your pellet gun's stated effective range. Be sure to always check the manufacturer's specifications on all pellet guns to determine what they rated the gun at.

Are pellet guns good for hunting?

Although pellet guns can be used for many purposes, they are also excellent hunting tools. Quiet, efficient, and inexpensive, there is a pellet gun for any size game you're looking to pursue. From small-caliber to big-bore rifles, whatever you're hunting, there is an appropriate pellet gun.

Many states have made hunting with pellet guns legal, although in most urban locations it is still prohibited to discharge anything that releases a projectile. It is important to bear in mind where you are and the regulations of your state and municipality before hunting with a pellet gun.

What else are pellet guns used for?

Pellet guns have many uses. Hunting, pest control, sport shooting, and training are but a few.

Some hunters prefer pellet guns as their primary hunting weapon. Pellet guns are quiet and can be used in areas a firearm would be inappropriate, such as a suburban setting. This is also the case if you're using it for pest control.
