Honestly though, I really want to see an organization formed that is par with UKARA. Licensing will help and can deter alot of criminals as well as irresponsible people from getting it. Licensing could also help ensure the license owner will know the laws and rules associated with it.
To become a firearm an airgun must meet 500fps AND 5.7 joules, which means with a .2 gram BB, the gun must shoot at 790fps.
