I have a Daisy 953. It's a single pump, single shot pellet gun. Highly accurate, but the single shot thing is a pain in the neck.
It takes upto a minute, even longer if you have big fingers, to load the next pellet. They do make a 5 shot cartridge, but even that is a pain. I have
10 of those and I go through them like water. (five shots and reload, five shots, reload, etc. Painful)
The pellet barrel is rifled for a small spin on the pellet, which increases accuracy. BB's can fit, but I don't want to ruin the rifle in the barrel
so I stick to pointed pellets.
The people I bought the gun from recommended never aplying oil or any lubricant to the gun unless there is a problem with velocity from the muzzle.
I like the sling-shot idea better. Especially the wrist-rocket variety. Use the bigger marble sized steel ammo and you can inflict some serious
damage. Even small rocks can be used, when you run out of ammo.
BTW - CO2 guns would only last as long as the co2 canister. Then what? Bicycle pump?
