Here in the UK air guns a legally classed as firearms, as are things like pepper sprays etc.

The only difference for us is that below the 12ftlb limit (6 ftlb for pistolas) we dont need a license, although one needs an air weapon permit in Scotland.

As far as our law is concerned if it fires a projectile through a barrel, and it is "lethal" them it's a firearm.  The law does not specify what lethal means, so if it could kill an ant it would be a firearm.  Very badly written .aw really, that relies heavily on the courts and case-law to define what much of it really means.

It is what it is.  Provided things dont get any tighter I can live with it.
