[quote=“ceevee369”][quote=“bobl”]There is a store set up in the RT Mart in Taidong selling them and there is also a club that alot of locals have formed here.
But I guess that doesn’t neccesarily make it legal.[/quote]
A coworker showed my one day a CO2 gun he bought on a night market.
He told me it is not illegal to use at home or in a shooting range, but it is forbidden to carry it either on you or in your car… :loco:
Taiwan has NO law which is clear, so…
I gonna buy one. They are around 2-3000 NT and very good quality.
Dead by airgun… hmmm… Tom hill could like it [/quote]
Same in the UK - the logic is that it’s illegal to carry any airgun loaded about your person but you ARE allowed to carry them unloaded in their packing case.
Mine was over US$300 and is probably sourced from the same place the nightmarket buys theirs (there are two major airgun manufacturers that I know of in Taiwan). As this one was actually made by Beretta it has the full weight and feel of the .357 version andd is very nice to shoot. Bear in mind that the majority of cheap gas guns are ‘green gas’ airsoft which are charged with a gas canister. Real CO2 guns use sealed gas cartridges that give you about 30-50 shots each and are great fun. Gas guns are actually much less lethal than the cheapo pump-action airguns because you can’t get any more or less power than what they are designed for. They also use soft lead diabolo pellets for accurate shooting rather than those nasty metal BB balls. The cheap guns can usually be pumped up ten or twenty times more than the legal muzzle velocity limit.
Which nightmarket is that btw?
