    Air rifles are categorised the same as shotguns and 22s and the same laws apply for their use.
    Getting a licence is a big hassle, it will most likely take you a few months atleast then you will have a 1 month cooling off period just incase you are going to go on a rampage with your airgun:lol:

    you also need a legit reason for a gun such as being a member of a shooting and target club or for vermin such as rabbits otherwise you wont get the license.

    You can legally buy/sell but you must state your licence number and serial number of any firearms when advertising (as per most state laws), interstate transfers are also quite easy to arrange through your local dealer.

    Now days for around $300 you can get a NEW synthetic stock .22 or .177 air-rifle with fibre optic sights and fairly good accuracy, just remember you aren't allowed to use them for vermin control in suburban areas (ie your own back yard:lol: ). My air gun was rated at 1000fps in .177 and would easily go through a steel fence so they can be dangerous in the wrong hands.

    You can always chuck those tungsten pellets in them too, they are called promethius or something. They would cleanly take a cat/fox with a head shot from 1000fps class airgun if you were so inclined ;)

    Go buy a nail gun.
    If you weld the bar back (must be pushed back to fire, gets pushed back when its pushed against the floor surface) you can load it with .22 shorts (must be the short not long cartridge)

    No licence needed :)

    Come on guys, make this sporting, get a bow. :)

    Or better still, a ging or slingshot with an ice cube. Those little trays that make the round ice blocks work well.

    ;)

    sorry to dissapoint but those were banned some time back(i think), still you would be better off just firing a nail would be extremely inaccurate and very dangerous but hey why not:lol:

    They are not banned & are still available from any good hardware store that sells power tools.

    Prefer to shoot a .22 calibre bullet with the aid of gun powder to projectile it 100's of metres rather than mild pressure to shoot a nail a couple of feet.
