Are air, (PCP), rifles & pistols considered firearms here?

Anyone know?

Not to the best of my knowledge, however, check local ordinances they vary from location to location; but, state wise, not like New Jersey where they are regulated just like a firearm.

This.
Check local regs. Charles county for one has specific laws for pellet and BB rifles and pistols regarding transport and discharge.

From my experience, they arenít considered Ďfirearmsí from a purchasing point of view. My daughter competes using an air rifle and Iíve always been able to have them sent directly to the house (no FFL needed).

We are usually driving across state lines to competitions so we follow FOPA with both the air rifle and her .22 as I donít want to deal with an under informed LEO on why the air rifle isnít considered a Ďfirearmí.

Not sure about elsewhere, but here in that last bastion of liberty on the east coast, Montgomery County, they consider discharging a pellet gun (any airgun, in fact) to be NO DIFFERENT from discharging a traditional firearm. So, plinking cans or punching paper in your back yard with a BB gun is the same as using a .50 BMG.

If you read the regs in detail, even after slingshot counts as a firearm.
