Samoa. 1960 ‘Arms Ordinance (1960).’ Independent State of Samoa; Section 7 (7). Apia: Legislative Assembly. 1 January
Samoa's legislation does not define arms, firearms or ammunition.
It does define a pistol as 'any firearm the barrel of which does not exceed 12 inches in length,' and a shotgun as 'a firearm having a smooth-bore barrel and primarily designed for sporting purposes and to discharge pellets of shot only.'
In Samoa, 'unlawful weapons' include 'any pistol, machine gun, rifle, airgun, and any other class of firearm except a shotgun.' Machine guns, rifles and airguns are not defined.
