Source, Wikipedia.org United States . Under Federal Law, . Airsoft guns are not classified as firearms and are legal for all ages under federal law, as well as the laws in each state. However, in some major cities and population centers the definition of a firearm within their respected ordin…ances includes propulsion by spring or compressed air, thus subject to applicable laws. . A 6 mm minimum orange tip must be present on the barrel end of the airsoft gun to identify it as such for any commercial sales.  Once sold, local laws may vary on whether or not the orange tip must be kept - in many places, no laws exist restricting one from removing or replacing the orange tip, but one should check the local laws before making such a modification. . Airsoft guns' trademarks must be removed where the manufacturer does not have an existing license agreement with the manufacturer of the real fire arm. For example: Classic Army has a licensing agreement with Armalite , so the trademarks can stay on imported replicas of Armalite's weapons. In practice enforcement is hit or miss. You might get an "unlicensed" gun through customs with trademarks intact, while a licensed gun might be held in Customs by an uninformed customs agent. House Resolution 607, sponsored in early 2007, would change this if passed, allowing imports to retain trademarks even if there is no agreement between the real firearms manufacturer and the replica manufacturer.  . In addition, the similarity between genuine firearms and airsoft replicas is close enough to provoke interaction with local law enforcement personnel if an airsoft gun is carried openly in public. . If someone were to, for example, attempt a robbery with an airsoft gun, they would be charged as if the airsoft gun were a real firearm. [ citation needed ] . New York City requires that all realistic toy or imitation firearms be made of clear or brightly colored plastics; furthermore, New York City makes possession of any pistol or rifle or similar instrument in which the propelling force is a spring or air, unlawful without a license.

The rest of New York State is unaffected by these laws, and there are no state regulations limiting or prohibiting airsoft. . Michigan allows the purchase of Airsoft guns. However, they must have an orange tip on the barrel. . Texas allows Airsoft guns to be owned but most cities require that the Airsoft guns be discharged only while outside city limits. . Some cities in Illinois considers shipping or distributing airsoft guns illegal. It is officially now not illegal to remove the red top of the airsoft gun . According to New Jersey state law, airsoft guns are classified as firearms, and therefore, must follow state firearm laws regarding posession and purchase.

yes and no. if you can present customs with an authentic gun license then yes but if you fail to do so it will be destroyed and you can be fined or even arrested. it's recommended that you don't try to buy an airsoft gun unless you have a license.
The probability of it being legal is quite high, seeing as Airsoft is legal in the state of Illinois.
Your local police can assist you. By California law it is illegal to have any airsoft guns other than ones that are clear or neon colored out in public. Over in Pleasanton it is illegal to shoot an airsoft gun (or any type of gun that shoots any type of projectile for that matter). In Dublin, minor…s are not allowed to posses or discharge airsoft guns unless given permission from their parents, but no one is allowed to have or shoot an airsoft gun in a public park. Otherwise ownership should be legal (consult your local law enforcement for a correct and current answer, I cannot be held responsible if anyone breaks the law because of this answer) (MORE)

yes they are but i would recomend not using them in a public area. i would go to a backyard or the woods
No dude, it sucks. There are no stores even outside the city where there is a huge following. I'm from Naperville and I've just made all my purchases online through airsplat.com. Maybe you should consider it a business venture?
No. Nothing firing a projectile is legal on a commercial airline. But if you are talking about mailing an airsoft gun to some place in the US, then yes, as long as there are now people on the commercial airplane. Email me at email@example.com for any questions from airsoft guns, all the way up to real …guns. (MORE)

Yes, they are legal to own in Winnipeg. There are the "consumer" (for lack of a better word) models that are often painted bright colors or are made out of clear plastic that can be found at Wal-Marts and Canadian Tires (to name a few stores), but there are also very realistic models (pistols, semi-…auto and full auto rifles, etc.) available from airsoft distributors for the more "serious" tournament player. The latter are considerably more expensive and well-made than the box-store models. Most airsoft weapons, however, cannot be ordered from the US or brought over the US/Canada border. If you wish to buy an airsoft weapon, you must purchase it from a Canadian distributor. And, as with any firearm - and not meaning to sound condescending here - please use common sense when handling and/or transporting any airsoft weapon. Any airsoft weapon can still take an unprotected eye out, and most people - most especially the police - wouldn't be very happy with you if you were carrying one of the more realistc models in plain sight. A friend of mine was arrested because he hauled out his M-15 airsoft weapon (a realistic looking, full-auto weapon) from the trunk of his car to show to a friend. They were in a crowded parking lot at the time, and freaked out a LOT of people. (MORE)
There are two different types: Mercenary and Formed. Mercenary is when not everyone has the same equipment, you use what you buy. Formed is when everyone has the same equipment (at least on one team) and is used more often in tournaments. Basically, form two teams of honest people who will admit th…ey were shot, and have maybe 2 shots per death, all shots must be called out. If you "die", you are out and must remain in a safe area for the rest of the game. Have both teams start on opposite sides of an area, with contact for both of them, and start. Last team standing wins. (MORE)
There are a few, try looking on Illinoisairsoft.com or Midwestairsofters.com for more info. -CPX Sports (OK at best) -Paintball Explosion (best so far) -Realms of Ruin tese are the best so far.

Yes, for recreational use on paintball fields.
