Pellet pistols and revolvers: what weapons are you allowed to have in your home?
Here are the questions we are entitled to ask about the regulation of these weapons.
Is it legal to have a pellet gun?
Pellet guns are classified according to their power, which must not exceed 20 joules. You can therefore buy a pistol of this calibre as long as you are an adult. A pellet gun that exceeds 20 joules will be classed as category C. You will need a hunting permit or licence before you can own a gun in this category.
The use of a pellet gun is also regulated depending on where the shot is fired. It is strictly forbidden to use a pellet gun or rifle in a public, unsecured place. This prohibition applies to all weapons, regardless of their power.
Can I shoot a BB gun in my garden?
However, it is permitted to shoot category D and some category C pellet guns in private places, subject to certain conditions.
You can therefore shoot pellets in your garden, as long as you comply with the following rules:
- securing the shooting area,
- set up a target (this must be an obstacle capable of stopping the bullets),
- The noise of your shots must not disturb the neighbours.
As well as buying ammunition for shooting, we also advise you to buy protective equipment before you start shooting. This will protect you from possible accidents. You can use protective glasses to avoid unwanted projectiles. And don't be afraid to make sure that no-one is around!
