Default Amazon now good to go: BB and pellet guns.

Even if "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com".

There have been many complaints here in forum that Amazon won't ship those to California (if Amazon itself is the seller). I have found this to be true myself in the past when trying.

I just now tried just for fun, and they will now ship BB, pellet, rifles and pistols to California addresses. Same as any other item they sell.

Due to Amazon's fluid pricing (as documented on Camelcamelcamel), bargains pop up from time to time on a continual basis.

Vendors added the Prop 65 warning to make it CA legal to import into CA.


Has no Prop 65 warning = no-go on importation to CA.
Has Prop 65 warning = go on importation to CA.

Sure Amazon sells pellets and BBs.
one example:
https://www.amazon.com/Crosman-Hunti...dp/B000BTNLVK/
And pellet guns:
https://www.amazon.com/Benjamin-Mara...dp/B00AU6EICA/


https://www.amazon.com/Crosman-2240-...dp/B00GA8RQBM/


A couple weeks ago they sold them, just not to California.
Now they ship to California no problem.

Seems to not be true for airsoft... Clicked on a related product, an airsoft version, and it was not available for CA.

If the entire surface of the airsoft is not brightly colored or transparent [PC 16700(b)(4)&(5)], then it is not legal to import to CA. [PC 20165(a)]




Penal Code 20165
(a) Any person who, for commercial purposes, purchases, sells, manufactures, ships, transports, distributes, or receives, by mail order or in any other manner, an imitation firearm, except as authorized by this section, is liable for a civil fine in an action brought by the city attorney or the district attorney of not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each violation.

Penal Code 16700
(b) As used in Section 20165, “imitation firearm” does not include any of the following:
(4) A BB device that is an airsoft gun that expels a projectile, such as a BB or pellet, that is 6mm or 8mm caliber which meets the following:
(A) If the airsoft gun is configured as a handgun, in addition to the blaze orange ring on the barrel required by federal law, the airsoft gun has a trigger guard that has fluorescent coloration over the entire guard, and there is a two centimeter wide adhesive band around the circumference of the protruding pistol grip that has fluorescent coloration.
(B) If the airsoft gun is configured as a rifle or long gun, in addition to the blaze orange ring on the barrel required by federal law, the airsoft gun has a trigger guard that has fluorescent coloration over the entire guard, and there is a two centimeter wide adhesive band with fluorescent coloring around the circumference of any two of the following:
(i) The protruding pistol grip.
(ii) The buttstock.
(iii) A protruding ammunition magazine or clip.
(5) A device where the entire exterior surface of the device is white, bright red, bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, bright blue, bright pink, or bright purple, either singly or as the predominant color in combination with other colors in any pattern, or where the entire device is constructed of transparent or translucent materials which permits unmistakable observation of the device’s complete contents.
(c) The adhesive bands described in paragraph (4) of subdivision (b) shall be applied in a manner not intended for removal, and shall be in place on the airsoft gun prior to sale to a customer.

Bought an adult size Red Ryder and BBs with no problem, arriving tomorrow.

But I sill can’t buy a particular small plastic garbage can - this Prop 65 stuff is a joke!
