i wonder if the revolvers and air pistols are part of the 270 pistols?of the muzzleloaders are they all rifles or could some be shotguns or maybe even a pistol?and why did they single out the chinese air rifle?other than more fps and less accurate why is it listed alone?

"Sometimes in American usage, the term "pistol" refers to a handgun having one chamber integral with the barrel, making pistols distinct from the other main type of handgun, the revolver, which has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers. But UK/Commonwealth usage often does not make this distinction."
