What exactly are the laws governing airsoft guns in Flagstaff, AZ? I've looked all over the place, and the only article I found here was for Tuscon. I'm sure it's not much different, but I would still like to know. My friends and I play airsoft (I just started) and we all use AEGs. Thanks for you help. Here's a story about one of my friends, the law, and airsoft: One of my friends got arrested because a 'vet saw him on his friend's roof with an airsoft gun, thought it was an assault rifle, and the SWAT were called in. He was arrested, but I'm not sure what else happened.
Before you use your airsoft gun, you may want to contact the police department and find out the local restrictions on airsoft guns. In addition to that, you can look at question #18310 on Air Soft guns in Arizona. The Flagstaff City Code discussing air guns states, "SECTION 6-01-001-0013 WEAPONS; RESTRICTIONS, PROHIBITIONS: A. Firing Prohibited: The wilful and unnecessary shooting within the corporate limits of any air gun, air pistol or other weapon or instrument which is capable of propelling or emitting through force a shot, pellet or other small projectile for a distance of ten feet (10') or more is hereby prohibited. (Ord. 444, 6-2-58)"
