The Lewis&nbsp; and Clark Expedition might have failed had it not been for an air rifle! That's right the expedition had only one air rifle but it was capable of shooting multiple shots and shooting them very accurately. The Native Americans encountered&nbsp; along the way were usually given a demonstration of the 'silent and deadly' big bore rifle. When they saw tight groups shot at extended yardages, from a weapon that was almost as silent as their bows, they were awe struck.
