Air gun is not a "Fire arm" so do not require any license. All you have to do is , go to dealer pay money and take your Air gun.
Importing air gun has been discussed earlier, you should use search option to get information

in many countries there are restriction and conditions for having an air gun....
also in the countries where having a gun is far most popular than pakistan.... even in Israel... in us and uk and many euoropean countries there are regulations based on muzzle velocity and gun's functioning system.... such as co2 based guns are nt allowed in many of them...

i am not sure, but what i have presumed that air guns with the bore of more than .22 are not allowed here.no FPS speed or machenism system is banned.

well i heard a according to article 144 i think
air gun falls in the category of a weapon and carrying weapons on the road side or else where , where they can be seen openly
is not allowed i was once hunting with my air gun in a park
2 police man came by me
and after a lot of discussion they called to some senior officer and he told me that this time i can get away with it but other wise the gun would be taken away and i would be fined
i doubt that they could fine me or take my gun due to some sources of mine as well :D are sitting up there
just wanted to caution u
and trust me it is true
