  • It really depends on your local ordinances. Check with your town or county laws to be sure. Every place is different. We used to live in the unincorporated area of our county and it was legal there but just across our finceline was a town and their laws were very different. No shooting or bow hunting/shooting was allowed ever, no matter the season.
  • Go in your back yard and don't aim at anything. The police only really get mad here if you discharge a firearm in public. I live in Tampa (big city) and we've discharged them in our yard, but we don't have acres so we told our neighbors what we were doing so they didn't get scared and call the cops. Most of the time they just assume it's firecrackers. I'd say with acres, you'll be fine.
  • I live in Saint Augustine, and according to a deputy friend, any kind projectile--BB, Air soft, Paintball, slingshot, Tactical Nuclear Device (He actually said that), etc. is illegal. I don't know if it's just here in St Augustine, or St Johns county, or all over the state.
  • In Duvall county Florida, It is ok to shoot a BB/Pellet gun in your back yard for target pratice only. You cannot shoot any wildlife. Also you must be at least 16 years of age to own one. Under 16 must have adult supervision. People with a felony record is also allowed to own one as well. Providing He or she is not on parole or probation. BB/Pellet guns are not concidered firearms in the state of Florida.

  • There is a Florida case where a BB gun was found to be a "deadly weapon" when it was used to commit a crime: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=fl&vol=alpha9710%5Cwk4%5Cop-87691_rtf&invol=1 This case suggest that unless you do something really upsetting (like commit a crime) you should be OK, barring local regulations against pellet (including BB) guns.
  • well i dont think so as long as they are 2 tone. but you could always go up to the cops and ask them they should know. as long as your not wanted by the cops lol
