How is it legal to own a .22 pellet gun, isn't it similar to a real .22 gun?
Didn't read all the replies but Tippmann makes a belt fed fully automatic .22 pellet gun based on the M98 that is legal for civilian ownership in most states.

This guy has some amazing youtube videos hunting with an air powered pellet gun.

100 Yard Dove Shot - Dove Hunting with Edgun Matador PCP Air Rifle (Nov 6, 2011) - YouTube

I have a gamo .17, and my brother in law has this one... with a massive scope (but he got it from wal-mart online, as it was cheaper)

Benjamin Discovery Rifle & Pump. Air rifles - PyramydAir.com

and he recently put a silencer on it, making it so quiet, the birds don't even react.

I put a different scope on my gamo this weekend, and it is very accurate.

The heavier pellets are better at bringing down small game. And the recoil from the spring type pellet guns is pretty loud, plus lots of vibration (so you need a scope that can handle that).

It is a very low cost fun way to shoot. We do it all the time at our houses.

AND the air pump will pump up your paintball air tanks, if you want to take the time. They max out at around 3,500 psi

I have one of the M4-177. Fun little plinker. But I prefer my 1377 (it's deadly accurate)

MI firearm laws are odd in that they specifically cover virtually every possible way to propel a projectile - including air.

Wonder how caseless ammunition, or some styles of artillery play into that? No cartridges...
