Bought a new air rifle and I'm looking for somewhere to shoot it in South Jersey. Given that woodchucks can be hunted year round with .22 rim fire, what is the issue, if any, with me hunting woodchuck with a .177 caliber pellet rifle? Any ideas or comments are welcome!
Dear esteemed experts, At the risk of asking yet another "is this gun legal?" question, I hope you can help me parse the 2C:39 when it comes to such thing as manufacturer licensed, BB or pellet-firing replicas of weapons that are enumerated as assault. A perfect example is an MP5 PDW replica produced by Umarex. Edit: CO2 powered, shoots .177 BBs. 1. "Banned by name". "H&K MP5" is printed right there on the frame, but it's obviously not THE H&K MP5. It's an officially licensed replica which could as well be machined out of cheese or fine chocolate, so... But then again, 2C-39-1w says "any firearm..." that has a listed name, and this product is a firearm (according to NJ) and its name is on the list... 2. "Substantially identical". Despite being visually identical, this is not THE H&K MP5. One cannot expect, say, Secret Service or Delta squads to be able to use it interchangeably with the real MP5 PDW. 3. Limitations on stock, pistol grip etc -- do not seem to apply because this weapon doesn't match the 2C-39 definition of a "rifle" or a "shotgun". 4. High-capacity magazine -- definitely evil, but nothing that a pinning by a qualified FFL gunsmith wouldn't solve? What is your opinion? Thanks, G.
