Shipping pistol home from Spain

    Hey guys, I've just bought a pistol over in Spain but only now realised that ryanair won't allow me check it in on the plane back. Would I have troubles simply shipping it back to Ireland or are there any import laws against this? I don't mind paying import duties or the like. It's less than 1 joule.

    Thanks a million.

    Provided the gun fires less than 328fps with .2g bb's and is an airsoft replica should be fine, you won't incur and duty charges because it was bought within the EU.
