Default Gun Recomendations?

I used to do a lot of shooting, particularly .22s for sport. But I am much older now and have medical problems which has left me in a wheelchair most of the time and I would like to shoot in my own back yard. I can manage to get a range of up to 70í or so there.
I want to purchase a couple of pellet guns (pistol or revolver) for the wife and I to play around with using a pellet trap.
I suppose that a revolver overall would be more accurate than a semi auto blow back type but not sure. I also read posts stating a lot of the semi autos jam too and that worries me.
I donít really care if I have 16-30 shots or not but I donít want a single shot and I think I want a CO2 type this time.
Looking for something less than let us say $125 per gun to start out and it seems that there are many.
We are looking at shooting at up to say 50í in the back yard and I think either a .177 or a .22 caliber would do just fine.
What would you recommend? And what pellets?

I would also be interested in a couple of rifles with more or less the same requirements. I prefer open sites.
In the past I have had a pump (5 mm Sheridan) and a break type but itís been years. The old Sheridan was very accurate.
Now I have a bad shoulder and back and I am afraid that pumping or breaking a barrel is not such a good idea anymore. Therefore CO2 may be the way to go?
