During a second incident, a man in his 60s was driving when the suspect "gestured towards him" with the gun.
He drove away as the man left in the direction of the River Thames, taking the footpath alongside the allotments on Eton Wick Road.
Officers are working to establish if the gun is an air weapon or another type of firearm.
They said the suspect is described as stockily built, between 5ft 9ins and 5ft 11ins tall, and may be in his thirties.
