Air guns are regulated under State and Federal firearm regulations. It is the buyer's responsibility to abide by all laws and regulations. Some states require a permit to buy an air gun. The same hunting safety rules that apply to handling bolt-action rifles and revolvers apply to handling air guns. Air guns should be unloaded before putting them down, storing them, or while in transport. Hunters need to sight on-target before pulling the trigger to avoid hitting livestock and hikers. Carry revolvers in a holster when not in use. Carry a laser target device that can judge distances to prevent wounding animals. Do not roughhouse while carrying a loaded air gun. A loaded air gun can kill at any distance.
