Fair enough, I guess it's "capable" of causing some degree bodily injury if it hits an eye or something or if you tossed in an M130 or higher in it. So yeah I guess it could be a firearm depending on the city's interpretation of "capable" (which likely won't be in the offenders favour since city councils are usually strapped for cash; a $50 parking ticket here and a $100 by-law offence there adds up to help keep their operating budget in the black).

So, OP.... I retract my previous statements and say it's probably not a good idea to fire airsoft or pellet guns within the city limits (except for at ranges and stuff).... But even then like I said, just because you can doesn't mean you should.
