    Are PCP guns legal? (use compressed air)

    You can get them in calibers from .22 to .50?

    Here is Evanix:

    It's a little expensive to get started because you have to buy the gun, air tank and, fill Station but if you wanted to get back to shooting this might be a option.

    never seen that before... we had like air rifles as a kid but i think what you have now is much more powerful. i honestly think it´s great that you can go shooting in the US. maybe it´s easier in some states i do not know. My older Brother was in the states last year & he got to do some shooting. he was ex british army too so knew a bit about shooting.

    Did they change the law in the last 2 years.

    This link claims this one is legal. It's a .22 cal.

    not that im aWare of, it quotes the figure as 6 footpounds, which will strugle to break a beer bottle at 6 feet, it just kbocks them over,, , i know ive tried
    it does however appear to be easily adjustable upwards, if they catch you with it they will considere it a fire arm and punish you accordingly

    the only change of i know in regards to air weapons is a 2 joules being the cut off for airsoft weapons. (anything higher is deemed a air rifle/pistol and its a crime to shoot somone with it as its assualt with a weapons)

    And in non joboese, yes they are lawful in the U.K, pending country on details, and many people use air pistols for pistol shooting now due to pistols being "banned". You can still get the "over powered" ones but they are deemed firearms so you need a license not just a age check. No idea what the pressure cut off is for when you need a firearms license. I dont know what a footpund is, unclear on joules and unclear on FPS, and they seem to in this sector use all 3 intefchnagbly without conversions.(annoys the **** out of me) Subject to change anyway, the air weapon change was in the 2019 offensive weapon bill i think, maybe the 2020 one.

    presuming this is U.K.
