    'Real' pistols aren't illegal, you can have a .22lr one. To get any pistol you have to be a member of a range.

    Do you mean actual air pistols like these?

    Or do you mean airsoft pistols? (In which case you're in the wrong forum and you want this forum instead).

    In either case, yes, they're perfectly legal.

    Fast answer: yes and yes.

    Longer answer: it's way too much effort and expense for that pistol. Get an airsoft one instead!

    Yes and yes and it's air pistols with a muzzle energy lower than 1 joule. Read here for more details:

    In fact, I'll move this thread there and let them explain...
