Air Gun Safety

Air Guns and other pneumatic powered guns are not toys. Learn the dos and don'ts of proper Air Gun use with Falls Church Police Lieutenant Steve Rau. 

Per City Code § 28-202. - Discharge of pneumatic guns in certain places prohibited; exceptions, minors under the age of 16 must have adult supervision when operating a pneumatic gun, including AirSoft and Paintball guns, within City limits. The use of any pneumatic gun within City limits must be done on private property, with permission of the property owner, and with care to prevent any projectile (such as a BB, pellet, or paint ball) from crossing the bounds of the property.
