In that perspective you can see that it takes a big ol' 50 caliber PCP air rifle like this one just to compete with a generic .45 pistol, and that rifle only has a 3 round capacity (not sure about total shots until you have to recharge the cylinder).

Actually this is the closest thing we have to historical Windbüchse:

This was a deadly weapon, yeah less "effective" and more complicated than a musket, but better than nothing. I would like to have this .50 cal airgun because I know I don't need any permit for this.
