Example text

What is an Air Pistol? Let us begin with a clear definition of the term ‘air pistol’. An air pistol is a pistol that uses air as the propulsive force to discharge a projectile: this applies to both spring-operated pistols and ‘pneumatic’ pistols. The designation ‘air pistol’ is also given to pistols powered by compressed CO2 (carbon dioxide), though strictly speaking such pistols are gas-powered as they use CO2 gas rather than air. In the UK the legal upper limit for the power output of an air pistol is 6ft/lb: any air pistol with a greater power output than this is illegal and the use or ownership of it would leave you open to prosecution under the law.

Such pellets are capable of a greater degree of consistency and accuracy, which is why hunters and match shooters use high-quality pellets in their weapons rather than BBs. The BB is used for fast-fire fun shooting, not for pin-point accuracy. BBs are considerably cheaper to buy than pellets due to their crude design; this may well be a consideration, as a keen pistol shot will fire thousands of projectiles every year. In fact, if you really get into fast-fire fun shooting it is possible to fire several thousand projectiles each month.

If you only have 5yd then that’s fine; it is even possible to test a pistol shooter at 5yd by reducing the size of the targets and increasing the speed at which the shots are delivered, so do not worry if your space is limited. The minimum space for an effective range is therefore 8ft wide for the backstop and 15ft long from backstop to the firing station. The optimum, if it is available, is 8ft wide by 30ft long, so almost any back garden, town or country, can provide an area with sufficient dimensions to create an effective and safe air pistol range if a small amount of money is spent and a little bit of time is given to the construction.
