In Israel all barreled arms shooting metallic ammunition are considered firearms and therefore require a special government license to own. Airsoft arms are defined as "dangerous weapons"; while they are not licensed as firearms, they may only be sold to recognized airsoft clubs. Since civilians do not automatically have the right to carry firearms in Israel (citizens have to comply with certain conditions and prove "necessity"), only people who fulfill the restrictive criteria for owning and carrying pistols may purchase an air rifle or pistol. Members of recognized shooting clubs are excepted and may own air rifles or pistols, and other sporting firearms, after proving two years of competitive activity. The Ministry of the Interior sometimes changes the qualifications for purchasing and owning air guns.
