Haha, you've got that right, drop it if asked.
OK Self Defense Act is a little unclear about Airsoft, though. It defines a pistol as any semi-automatic firearm which:
a. has an overall length of less than sixteen (16) inches,
b. is capable of discharging a projectile composed of any material which may be reasonably expected to be able to cause lethal injury
, (This is the unclear part)
c. is designed to be held and fired by the use of a single hand, and
d. uses gunpowder, gas
or any means of rocket propulsion to discharge the projectile.
Airsoft meets parts a, c and d. The only question is whether the projectile could cause lethal injury. If it can, then it is a pistol and falls under the Self Defense Act and related state and local laws. I have no feel for this issue. Anyone know about this?
