Best Answer

It all depends. Most have mini airtanks in the gearbox that fill up with air for each shot. then to shoot, your spring pushes an airnozzle all the way forward. so technically yes. in another style called cloud guns (not a very popular type) bbs are load into a chamber with a barrel in one end. a large airtank is the connected to the back of the airtank. once the air in the tank is release, it goes into the chamber and out the barrel, sucking bbs with it
