I want to build a "sniper robot"

I would like to build a sniper robot. This would be a robotic machine, with aa gun, cameras,and a computer inside, that would shoot at
targets.
It would be based on a stationary platform, meaning that there is no requirement that this robot moves about. Its only job would be, upon command, to aim and shoot at targets. I hope that eventually it could aim and shoot at moving targets,but for the beginning, they will be stationary.
To be safe, and for ease of development, it will shoot non-lethal bullets like airsoft bullets or some such. Since it does not need to move,I want it to be powered by 110 volts and, if necessary, compressed air. The platform would be leveled with some precision using adjustable feet. (this will aid in computing trajectory).
Acquisition of targets, and calculation of distance and relative location of the target, would be done with two cameras providing stereoscopic effect, like human eyes.
What I am hoping is that I can build a robot that would, say,be able to shoot dozens of randomly placed dominoes with astonishing speed.
My main qustion is, for now, the following: what kind of airsoft gun can I buy that would be able to shoot without human assistance (no slide racking), and preferably be powered with compressed air, and be relatively consistent, such as 10 MOA or so. I think that I saw one at rip-off fairs and festivals.

Hitting the target with a laser pointer would require solving most of the recognition and acquisition problems.

To make it a little harder, how about having several sound sensors and have it direct a laser at a flying mosquito.

Shoot at any sound? You might as well have it defend its Off switch.

I did not say shoot at any sound. Iggy is smart enough to understand that shooting at a flying mosquito would include analysing the sound to determi ne what is making the noise. I understand that female mosquito's have a d ifferent pitch than mail mosquito's. I would shoot both, but Iggy may only want to shoot the females. They are the ones that bite. And of course o ne would need to program in limits on where to point the limits. Do not wa nt to irritate the neighbors.

Well, you could work on your Weirding Technique until Muad'Dib was proud of you, Pete. That'll teach those bugs to come into your home.
Speaking of which, I saw a fat, gray, furry body hasten through my kitchen this morning when I woke up. 5 minutes later, there were 4 mousetraps set. Hope I don't step on one with my bare feet. The killer in me is waiting expectantly to hear a loud SNAP quite soon.

Might make for an interesting active portion of a home security system. Is it a crimson trace or is it a laser pointer, do ya feel lucky? ;)

That's a good way to separate the tasks. Usually when I approach something like that I like to do the dicey part first, then do the "I know I can do this with enough effort" part later. And, in this case, I see the targeting and shooting part as dicier, so that's the right place to start.
Iggy -- post updates if you do this, it sounds like fun! And when you find that you always lag a moving target, say so: I'll share some control rules with you that'll fix that problem.
