    How old does a child have to be to own an air rifle/ airsoft gun in Georgia? And can she keep it in our home if my husband is a felon?

    Did our gun laws statute (Code) section disappear with the upgrade?

    From the Georgia felon in possession law. https://www.georgiapacking.org/GaCode/?title=16&chapter=11&section=131

    An airsoft gun does not use an explosive or electrical charge to push a pellet.

    I am not aware of any age limit on children owning an airsoft gun. Make sure he wears eye protection.

    If the felon of the household is currently on parole or probation, it might be a violation for HIM to live in a place where he has access to any kind of gun or weapon.

    But if he’s completely finished with his sentence, airguns and archery equipment are OK for him to have.

    Oh, yah. When I was a kid.
    Later when, as an adult, I went into an archery shop and indoor range, I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED to find out that they didn't sell dynamite-tipped arrows, nor even arrows with a holder that I could slide my own stick of dynamite into.
