Those shooting gallery guns were BB guns that ran on compressed air.
They were not .22 short.
I had to look this up, it's been so many years ago and my memory is fuzzy.

But apparently you remember correctly and I'm wrong. The .22 were the pumps. And they went away even earlier.

Not what the OP asked, but if you built an air operated full auto - is this what the air soft guns people talk about are - that should be outside the jail bait territory wouldn't it?

Full Auto airguns are legal from a federal standpoint. Airguns may be regulated at the state & local levels.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?

Yeah you can build one, benefits are you get free rent in a federal prison, free food, and you'll make a lot of new friends.

Been milling shapes like that for a few thousand years
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF. Second Amendment Foundation is a solid alternative.
