BB means ball bullet, this name originated after the bird-shot pellet which is a similar size. The pellets usually made of steel but can sometimes by made of either Zinc or Copper to fight erosion.

The Difference Between
Air Guns and Air Rifles
BB Guns

What is the difference between a pellet gun and a bb gun?

Both a pellet gun and a BB gun are similar in appearance But here is the main difference. Most BB guns have a smooth bore barrel. The BB just tumbles as it flies through the air. BB guns are not very accurate. The BB also doesn't deform when it hit the target. It's a very poor choice for hunting small game. However they are fun and inexpensive to shoot. Most will not attain a speed of much more than 400 feet per second (FPS.) Pellet guns use several different shape pellets. Some are for target shooting some are for hunting and other uses. Pellet guns usually have a rifled barrel (One with grooves in it.) This causes the pellet to spin as it travels to the target. This spinning make it more accurate just like a real bullet. The pellet is made of a softer material than BB's and when they strike the target they deform causing more damage to the target. They are ideal for hunting small game like rodents and birds. Pellet guns can attain a speed of over 600 FPS and pellet rifles can reach speeds of over 1,200 FPS. BB are .175 or .177 Caliber. Pellets come in .177, .20, .22, .25, 9mm, 45 Cal and 50 Cal. The last 3 LARGE calibers are used the PCP guns and Rifles (PreCharged Pneumatic air guns) They are capable of bringing down a moose. However PCP guns and rifles are very expensive. Pellet guns are less expensive and BB guns are the least expensive. Now don't confuse BB Air guns with Air Soft guns. They both shoot BB's but air guns shoot steel BB that are small and Air soft guns shoot plastic 6mm BB's. Air soft guns are considered toys while air guns are not. An Air gun is a gun so handle it with safety in mind. == ==

Is this a pellet gun or bb gun or both?

Sorry I am not answering this I wrote the question. This is what you should know.

I am looking to buy a good bb gun, one that can kill rabbits and squirrel's, etc. I am not allowed to get a pellet gun but if it shoots bbs that's OK.

Here is the gun.

The BB gun you posted is a 22 caliber Pellet rifle. It's not designed to shoot BB's.

See the link #2 below and it will give you more information about BB guns. Check the FPS (Feet per second) on each and select one that you can afford. BB guns can kill rodents but they are not the best selection for rodent control because BB do not deform on impact and the critter will suffer. Pellets make a clean kill.

If you are really interested in air gunnnig then read the article that I have on my profile page. Here it is:

This Category is for the traditional BB gun and Pellet gun or rifle. If you are looking to Paintball or Airsoft there are separate categories for each of them.

**********Air gunning.*************************

There are exception to this information. This is a generalization of different air gun systems.

Here are a few things to understand about air guns. Not all of them are the same. There are BB guns, there are pellet guns and there are combo BB/pellet guns. All BB guns and combo BB / pellet guns are for plinking or simple target practice. They are not very good for rodent control. The barrels are usually smooth bore some have rifling and not very accurate beyond 30 feet. They will work but are not efficient. Regular pellet guns usually have rifled barrels that give them more accuracy and distance. BB guns and rifles have their place for teaching young shooters the rules of shooting or just having fun. Every boy wants one, and it's a great way to teach safety and gun handling.

If you want rodent control or hunting stay with a "pellet" only air gun or rifle. Today there are 5 different power plants for air guns. I'll explain each one and try to give the good and bad for each system. Some of this information applies to both BB and Pellet guns and rifles.

Co2: you can purchase Co2 cylinders in 12 gram (the most common) 88 gram, 10 oz up to 24 oz. But 12 gram is the most common. They can propell a pellet at around 500 Feet Per Second (FPS) they hold around 800 PSI of Carbon Dioxide in the powerlett. Larger Co2 cylinders produce more power and more shots but must be recharged at a sporting center when they run out of Co2 gas. 12 gram powerletts are not reusable. Never leave a charged 12 gram Co2 powerlett in a gun after you use it. It will cause problems, like a blown seal. Co2 air guns are used for small rodent control, plinking and target shooting.

Advantage: Multi-shot air guns use this type of system because you can shoot several pellet between reloading.

Disadvantage: There are more powerful systems that produce a faster FPS, than the common 12 gram Co2. Also their range is not as far as other systems.

Forearm pump: Benjamin rifles are well known for this type design, several other air guns employ this design also. You must pump the rifle from 2 to 10 strokes for each shot. The more strokes ,the more power. Never go over 10 strokes. This system will produce around 600 FPS. But if you are shooting 10 rounds at 10 strokes each, well you get the Idea, you get tired. These air guns are single shot air guns. They are used for rodent control and target shooting.

Advantage: other than the pellets nothing else is needed.

Disadvantage. Single shot and all the pumping between shots

Spring piston: Most break barrel and under lever rifles and pistols use this type of system. It produces plenty of power and pellets have a further range and harder impact. They are used for rodent control, target shooting, and hunting.

Advantage: Powerful, anywhere from 500 FPS to 1500 FPS and more.

Disadvantage: They are single shot and you must reload after each shot. You also can not cock and load the rifle and leave it overnight. Over time the spring will lose its tension if it's always cocked.

Nitro piston: This is much the same design as "Spring Piston" except there is no spring. A Nitrogen gas cylinder replaces the spring cylinder. They are used for rodent control, target shooting, and hunting.

Advantage: powerful anywhere from 500 FPS to 1500 FPS and more. You can cock and leave the rifle for days. Gas doesn't get weak over time, there is also no spring wobble.

Disadvantage: They are single shot and you must reload after each shot. The cost is more per rifle over spring powered systems.

PreCharged Pneumatic (PCP): These can be the most expensive rifles on the market. PCPs are also used in Olympic shooting. They come in calibers that you won't find in other air rifles and air guns. These air guns, shoot calibers in .177, .20, .22, .25, 9MM, 45 Caliber and 50 Caliber. Most air guns usually shoot .177 to .22 caliber, but PCPs shoot all sizes of pellets. They can be single shot or multi-shot systems. They shoot with Co2 or Air power. They are more accurate and much harder hitting than most other air guns. But you must use a special bicycle pump or Scuba tank to charge then to the required 2000 to 3000 PSI that is needed to operated the power system. These air guns are used for target, rodent and large game hunting.

Advantage: Power, distance, accuracy, single or repeater-shot and larger selection of pellets sizes.

Disadvantage: Need special equipment to charge them and PCPs cost more than most air rifles and air guns. Larger pellets, .25 cal and up, must be ordered online and will cost more than smaller pellets.
