Where's all the interest in airguns?

IKN:
My 2ยข,
Advantages to airguns:
1. Not considered a firearm by the BATF (although many states have regulations).
2. Easy to carry large amounts of ammo in small space.
3. Lead and projectile mold could be stored/buried at a remote BOL with little chance of being stolen and little to no degredation.
4. Currently a little fuzzy on the legal side, but can be legally (???) muffled/silenced.
5. Depending the the type/size, can be very versatile from hunting small/medium game to home defense.
6. Not prone to runs on ammo like the current situation.
Disadvantages:
1. Expensive compared to regular firearms, at least in the realm of higher powered airguns.
2. Not exactly small & compact.
3. Limited number of full powered shots or slow to recharge and reload if all full powered shots.
4. Very limited applications for hunting under current laws & regulations (not necessarily an issue in a SHTF senario).

I personnally like the idea of an airgun, especially in a Bug Out situation, but not with the current price, performance, and limitations of current airgun technology.
