Penalty for carrying an airsoft gun - what would it be?

Ok say like just on a chance of really bad luck you were going to go over to a friends house to show him your new GBB or you were meeting up with some guy to sell it to after work or school or whatever and you just stuck it in your backpack like obviously not where anybody is going to see it or had it in your car or something like that. Just bad luck strikes and you got pulled over or something or some guy decides that he's going to search you for whatever reason and he find what to him probably is a real handgun. Once it's established this is just an airsoft gun etc. etc. could you get in any sort of legal trouble over being in possession of this thing in a public place? I always get worried when I stick this thing in my car or times when I've sold a GBB and you end up meeting the guy at the parking lot of some mall or whatever. Am I legally doing anything wrong in such an instance?

what do you mean? It's simple question no need to be all sarcastic, I just dont understand what I'd be expected to do? Go get police approval to sell an airsoft gun or hire a security guard to take it from place to place because I'm going to get arrested for having a legal piece of property in public just because people fear the idea of guns? I'm not flashing it around and carrying it on a holster on my belt.

Do you flame retardant clothing? If so, I'd suggest putting it on...

honestly guys I'm just wondering, I'm not carrying it around on a holster, but since you always hear of instances of this kind of thing in the media, what would be the proper method of transporting an airsoft gun from place to place? Sorry if I don't have years and years of experience doing this kind of thing.

Forget years and years of experience, how aobut some common sense? Don't do it in public places? Using a locked pistol case with a trigger lock on the GBB?

are you kidding me... So I can go to jail for being in possession of something that isn't even illegal to own? Wow that makes a lot of sense. Unless I lock it in some big fancy 300 dollar case that's fire-proof and weld proof and whatnot.

You won't go to jail, but you'll probably lose the gun. We didn't say you'd go to jail.

Pistol cases are not $300, nor are locks for it and the trigger.

You asked us for how to do this legally, properly. Either listen and learn, or keeping doing stupid.

I'd like to see the legal papers for that kind of thing. You are allowed to carry air rifles and pistols around in your vehicle however you like so long as they are unloaded and have no C02 in them, and they are way more dangerous than airsoft guns. What the difference between having it in a gun case and having it in a place where it is totally non-visible, unloaded, in it's box, inside a bag or something like that.

Experience isn't what's needed. You need brain cells, and basic litteracy skills to read before you post such a dumb question. You should know better than to ask that here. To answer your question before you become fully engulfed in fire and brimestone.... The gun should be transported in a locked case, prefferably in the trunk. It should never be displayed in public. Its idiots that don't do that which are the ones we see in the media. BTW.... have you met Greylocks yet? If not, you soon will... Have a nice day (giggles feindishly)
