Spring pistols are the most common type of BB gun pistol available and are the norm for most new bb gun players who are looking to get a foothold in the airsoft world. Spring bb guns do not need any batteries or gas to make them shoot. All the shooter needs to do is pull back on the top slide until it clicks, then release it to make the weapon ready to shoot. Spring handguns are generally cheaper than their gas or electric counterparts, but that does not mean that they have less power, as a good spring pistol will normally have more power than an electric bb gun.
