He didn't do too bad, given he didn't really know what he was talking about...
He's right, ATF doesn't consider them "firearms". Some States and Cities DO! If you go this route, check your local laws.
That little carbon-fiber tank he was filling the rifle with goes for $450.00! And, you still need a source of air to fill it.
A Pre-charged Pneumatic Airgun (what he has) fills to 3000 - 4500 psi. You won't get there with a bicycle pump. You'll see them called PCP airguns.
They are incredibly accurate and have almost no recoil. My Career Dragonslayer .50 launches a 177 grain "pellet" at 680 feet/second. To compare, a .45 ACP handgun launches a 230 grain bullet at 750 feet/second. Within reasonable range, the Dragonslayer will take any game animal in North America. It'll shoot 6 times for each fill of air, but like the Sam Yang it is a single shot. Look up "Mr. Hollowpoint" on youtube if you'd like to see some big airguns in action. What they do to feral pigs is impressive.
If you're hunting small game or target shooting, the Benjamin "Murauder" is the way to go. It ain't cheap at $500, plus scope and pump/air tank/compressor (however you fill it), but they'll do anything a .22 LR will do. The Murauder comes with a "shrouded barrel" (integral silencer) and is very quiet.

For those who don't know, bullets are measured in "grains". There are 7000 grains to a pound. A 230 grain bullet weighs roughly half an ounce...

Does it have a thing that tells time on the stock?

You really need quick reload when Black Bart and his gang aƕrive crawling around like spiders in your back yard trying to interupt your Christmas dinner. The Red Rider holds 200 shots, it kills them dead and stacks them in a pile for you.

That thing is pretty impressive for an air gun.

Of course I'm the last to find this stuff out. I thought I had come across something new and you are already all over this.

I guess I'll have to try this new stuff out before it gets banned by the leftist.

unless your carrying a high pressure pump around, not worth it.

however the 22 cal air rifles that have a piston pump... those are good. they're short of the ballistics of a 22LR in some cases

just have to carry the bullets.

for now, Ill stick to smokeless powder powered FIREARMS.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I have two SCUBA tanks (one 3000 psi, the other 4500), plus a high pressure hand pump I use for my airguns. I fill the tanks with a "ShoeBox" compressor that will pump up to 4200 psi.

My .25 caliber Murauder has ballistics comparable to a .22 LR (it would easily kill a large dog). It's an 8-shot bolt action and is almost silent with it's shrouded barrel. It will shoot more than 30 shots per fill at 2900 psi.

The thing that makes a PCP airgun superior to any spring powered gun is the near total lack of recoil. Lay the crosshairs where you want the pellet to go and squeeze the trigger. They are easily the most accurate guns I own (under 75 yards). The only negative is the "shuttlecock" shape of the smaller caliber pellets. They lose velocity quickly and are nearly useless beyond 100 yards. The .22 LR doesn't suffer this. I often poke holes in half gallon milk jugs at 200 yards with my .22s.

The airguns with their own integral pumps are useful, but limited in power.

There are times when an airgun (any airgun) is "politically" acceptable, where even a .22 LR would not be. I wish it weren't so, but it is what it is, even here in Nevada.

In case you wonder, I'm a single issue voter when it comes to the 2A.

Dilbert, I apologize, I'm not trying to be a showoff. I'll be 60 in early November and I've owned a BB gun or powder burner for 53 of those years. And, just like with my heli's I take them apart, clean, and fix them as necessary. You learn a lot about things that interest you in that amount of time.

Hey nothing showoff about having knowledge.

I was shocked to see a powerful air rifle like this which only shows how behind the times I am...gosh, now I'm worried...what else have I missed?

PS...I enjoy your type of post. It's nice to learn about things from users.
