    Does Cobb County (Kennesaw) have ordinances against teenagers shooting these airsoft guns in woods around subdivisions?
    Or is this thing even classified as a "firearm"?
    (just looking out for my grandson)
    Thanks

    Lawton,

    I won't answer your questions specifically, because you've certainly been around here enough to know how and where to find the answers for yourself.

    My non-legal/official answer is your grandson is good to go (as is mine).

    This is why more and more people don't come back to GPDO

    Check Municode.com.
    If I recall correctly from what I read other Cobb backyard plinkers have written here, it's legal to shoot in unincorporated Cobb, so long as you have a safe backstop so the projectile stays on your own property.
    With Air-Soft, that would probably only require 50 yards of distance and/or some light vegitation to knock down the little plastic pellets.

    City of Kennesaw? Check MuniCode or call City Hall. They might have stricter rules than in unincorporated Cobb.

    I am one of the few people that have defended you on this forum (you can look it up if you care).

    No more.

    I might be wrong, but isn't this a forum to ask questions and recieve information about gun laws in the great state of Georgia? And shouldn't people who ask legitimate questions recieve legitimate answers, and not attitude? Just a question.
