No, since they do not use gunpowder as propellant, they are generally classified as "air rifles"

It depends on what you mean. You can buy Air-Soft guns at some sporting goods stores. An Air-Soft gun looks like a real gun, but fires plastic pellets. They are available in several different models and are made to the same specifications as the real gun they are a copy of, so they will fit into a gun case or holster designed for that same gun. You can also buy training guns at some gun stores, or through companies like Blackhawk.

Air Soft guns are not designed to fire Pellets. The shape is just wrong but there are steel BB in the 6mm size avalable. But because they are heaver than plastic they fire or travel slower. If the Air Soft gun is not designed to use them they may actually ruin or break the air gun.
