possession of a replica firearm is a crime in many cities. discharging an airgun within city limits is a crime in most cities. if you point an airsoft gun at another person who at all feels threatened by your action, that is called menacing, and is a felony offense. possessing a replica firearm in public view is also a felony offense, and you can be charged with brandishing a firearm.
REMEMBER! if you commit any crime with an airsoft gun, you will be charged as if you had used a REAL firearm!
NEVER play airsoft in a public place. No person may openly display or expose any imitation firearm (replica firearm), in a public place. The term "public place" means an area open to the public or exposed to public view and includes streets, sidewalks, bridges, alleys, plazas, parks, driveways, parking lots, automobiles, whether moving or not, and buildings open to the general public, including those that serve food or drink, or provide entertainment, and the doorways and entrances to buildings or dwellings and the grounds enclosing them.
And, last but not least, if you are seen by the police, getting a fine or warning is the least of your worries. you may very well be SHOT by the police!
Don't be a douchebag! NEVER play airsoft EXCEPT on designated airsoft or paintball fields, or on private land (for which you have WRITTEN permission) in the country far away from the observation of casual passers-by.
And, NEVER remove the orange tip.
