1. A compressed gas powered gun for discharging relatively fragile projectiles and, upon the discharge of one projectile, manually actuable to position another projectile in a location within the gun to be subsequently discharged therefrom comprising:

  • a receiver;

    a compressed gas source fastened to the receiver;

    a projectile supply hopper coupled to the receiver and containing a plurality of projectiles, each projectile having a generally circular cross-sectional configuration;

    an elongated barrel connected to the receiver through which projectiles may be sequentially discharged;

    means including a user actuable trigger for selectively supplying compressed gas from the source to expel a projectile through the barrel;

    means for sequentially aligning projectiles from the supply hopper with the barrel including a feed tube formed as an integral portion of the receiver and a slide portion reciprocable within the receiver between a first position to allow a projectile to pass from the feed tube into alignment with the barrel, and a second position to prevent a projectile from passing from the feed tube into alignment with the barrel; and

    a forestock coupled to the slide portion of the means for sequentially aligning and manually movable along the barrel in the direction of elongation thereof to position a projectile from the feed tube in a location within the gun to be subsequently discharged therefrom.
