Table 1: Definition of an Arm

The term 'firearm' or 'arm' covers rifles, muskets, carbines, shotguns, revolvers, pistols, and all other deadly weapons from which a bullet, ball, shot, shell, or other missile may be discharged by means of gunpowder or other explosives.

The term also includes air rifles except those which, being of small calibre and limited range, are used as toys.

The barrel of any firearm is also considered a complete firearm for purposes of the law.
