Air is the culprit!

High-pressure air is the real noise culprit.
And, CO2 under pressure acts the same as air,
_ so you might as well toss it into the same pot.

Spring-piston guns are the quietest because they use
_ the smallest amount of high-pressure air.
By the time the pellet gets to the muzzle,
_ the air in a springer is under a lot less pressure
_ than the muzzle blast from a PCP or other pneumatic.
