that's a question not easily answered. if you used commonly available bb's like .2 or .25 i think the answer would be illegal. but then if you used uncommon bb's like .36 or .43 the answer would be no. this was the problem they ran into when they wrote the law back in 1995. certain ammo for pellet guns when the law read only 500fps would push the gun over the limit while other ammo would not. so they added the energy limit as well as a fix to their oversight. i think it would take a judge to interpret the law and apply it as many people still only go by the fps limit. it makes for difficult enforcement which probably would mean no enforcement. just food for thought.
