Thanks for the info on the raptor pellets.
Basic airgun types:
Multi-pump pneumatic (you pump it up several times per shot)
Pre-charged pneumatic (fill it off a scuba tank, the best type)
Spring piston (when you pull the trigger, a big spring pushes a piston and compresses the air)
All break barrel pellet guns are spring piston, including the "nitro-piston" versions that replaced the metal spring with a gas charged strut.
