Seríes ISO Pistol
The Crosman Series 150 pistol, produced by Crosman Arms Co., Inc., Fairport, N. Y., uses carbon dioxide (CO:) gas as a propellant, and shoots lightweight, skirted lead pellets from a rifled barrel. Commonly called a CO: Pellgun, this pistol is of single-shot type, and was introduced in 1954. It is produced in cals. .177 (Model 157) and .22 (Model 150).
Unlike pneumatic and spring-type air guns, this pistol has no lever or pump. Liquid COs is contained in a steel cylinder called a Powerlet which is inserted in a tube under the barrel. Pulling the trigger releases the hammer which actuates a valve, and the valve releases a certain amount of gas into the barrel to drive out the pellet. As soon as some of the gas is let out of the Powerlet, more liquid turns into gas and keeps the pressure up. Thus the pressure is constant until the last drop of liquid turns to gas.
This pistol is popular for low-cost target practice, and is well suited for indoor use as it develops relatively low power and very little noise.

Deer hunting is an interesting thing that reminds you of those golden old ages of 19th centuries, where a handsome hunk well equipped with all hunting material rides on horse searching for his target animal either for the purpose of displaying his masculine powers or for enticing and wooing his lady love.
