Licence To Own ‘Airsoft’ Style Air Gun Is Mandatory in Spain: Police are warning people that they must have a licence to own an ‘airsoft’ style plastic pellet shooting air gun. They have denounced two people in Elche for having AirSoft weapons without documentation. The concern is more due to the replica air guns authentic appearance than the possible damage low velocity plastic pellets can do. If you plan to fly with AirSoft guns, or paintball guns, always declare them at check-in. Failure to do so can get you kicked off the flight without refund! Source Link
