Ask HPD: Airsoft or Replica Guns


Question: What are the laws about airsoft or replica guns?

Answer: A replica gun is any type of gun that resembles a real firearm. It is against the law for anyone to carry or display a replica gun in public unless the replica gun is unloaded and in a case or securely wrapped. It is also against the law for anyone to fire a replica gun in public except at a properly constructed target range. If you are in possession of a replica gun and encounter an HPD officer, it’s important to follow all orders from the officer. The officer will need to inspect the replica gun to determine that it is not a real firearm. Violators can face a fine of up to $500 and/or up to a year in prison. The air gun will also be taken into custody by the officer.
