    Unless your municipality or county has some REALLY draconian laws (like CA, NY, MA, or Washington DC might have) regarding BB guns, you should be ok to use it to your hearts content, provided that you do so in a safe manner.
     
  3. Where in Seattle are you?
     
  4. Anyways, here's what I found in the SMC. AFAIK that's the only mention of air guns. Just don't shoot them on or onto public property and you should be good. The only specific discharge-related SMCs they have pertain only to firearms. Of course, use common sense when shooting the BB gun and be safe.
