why do people ask are they legal in ***** state? i would under stand if it was a contry (but not USA) they are legal in all states but it is the towns and cities. call the the closes PD and just say some one you know is coming and he wants to bring is spud gun so they do not think you have one and go and takeit away.that is my $.02 worth

I mainly wanted to know if the marble gun was legal because Ive read that potato guns are legal but may be considered a firearm if they fire other projectiles.

Spud guns are legal in most localities so long as you don't shoot dangerous items that actually have killing potential. T-shirts, spuds, fruit, veggies, dog-doo are fine, as long as you don't shoot the at somone. That could level as much as an ADW charge in some states (3rd degree felony in Ohio)

I've heard the same thing about the "harmful projectiles". I'm sorry, but a 2" diameter potato traveling over 200mph seems like it has lethal possibility. Very unlikely, but still possible. And does this include air powered ones? Latke claims they can produce a supersonic spud. Couldn't a blow to the head with that be lethal?

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (AFT) has previously examined devices known as "Potato Guns, "Spud Guns" and "Spudzookas" and determined that they are ostensibly designed and intended for use in launching potato projectiles for recreational purposes and not as weapons. It is ATF's position that they do not meet the definition of "firearm" or "destructive device" as defined in Federal law.
However, we would caution you that any similar devices that can be determined to be weapons by reason of their design, construction, intended use, actual use, !!!ammunition!!! or other factors, may be "firearms" and/or "destructive devices" as previously defined.

this is part of some letter from
http://www.spudlauncher.com/index.html

I know a potato could kill somebody but this says there legal and ones firing diferent kinds of ammunitinon might be considered elegal

I think it said something about pneumatic potato guns.
