No. MOST of them are. The most popular "22" in the world is the .22 Long rifle cartridge, which IS a rimfire- as is the .22 Short, .22 Long, .22 Extra Long (obsolete), .22 WRF, and the .22 WMR. HOWEVER- there HAVE been .22 centerfire cartridges, such as the .220 Swift, 22-250, and a European cartridge, the .22 Velo Dog. .22 caliber means that the bullet is 22/100ths of an inch in diameter. None of the centerfire rounds will interchange with the .22 LR.

Rim Fire bullets (Rifles or guns) require a firing pin that strikes the bullet casing and the resulting explosion of gunpowder in the shell fires the bullet out of the barrel. Air guns have NO firing pin. An air valve or piston forces air or C02 into the barrel behind the pellet or BB and this shoots the projectile out of the barrel.
