I probably know the answer to this but sometimes it isn't obvious.

While planning an inventory of things to fill my boat with and drag around it came to me that a bang stick would or at least COULD be handy. That brought me to this.

Is a bang stick considered a firearm? Do you have to have a FFL to build and sell them?

That led to this.

I assume due to barrel length, if it is considered a firearm it must be considered a handgun right, wrong?

That led to this.

Is there a waiting period to buy a bang stick?

That led to this.

Is a bang stick illegal to have in the boat in management areas just like any other firearm?

Maybe I should just stick with my frog gig. Now that still leaves the question.

Are frogs considered fish by FWC? Do ya need a fishing license to "fish" for frogs?

Figured I'd ask all the dumb ones before I get home so I won't have to walk around red faced at my ignorance. :D

From what I understand frogs are in a class by themselves.Frog is a frog. The over all lenght is the issue with the power head/bangstick. when you buy them(at a gun store) they have a welding rod tacked on them so the gun dealer doesn't get in trouble for selling a short barrelled weapon. So I'm gathering that you can't have one on the boat other then during hunting season when you can have a regular weapon on board. (at least I think thats it but I may be wrong) Not that any AIRBOATER would ever carry a gun on thier boat :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

To answer the bangstick question no if the bangstick is being used as its intended use. If you have seperated and just have the end it is a fire arm. If you are interested in one you can check my website.

This is off from the T and O book.

WARNING **
A bang stick is a firearm under the laws of Florida, and should be treated at all times with the respect
due such a device. While these materials are offered to familiarize participants with the appropriate and
safe use of a bang stick, the Commission cannot warrant that such use will be safe under all circumstances,
nor is this brief introduction intended as a substitute for the degree of experience and knowledge necessary
to safely utilize such a device. Improper use of a bang stick, as with any firearm, can result in serious
personal injury or death. In the event you choose to utilize a bang stick to harvest alligators, you should
select a model that the manufacturer deems appropriate for such use, and should at all times comply with
manufacturer safety recommendations and specifications for use.

A Bangstick is a Firearm.

There is know waiting period for a Bangstick.

It is illegal to have a Bangstick in a managment area because it is legally a Firearm.

You do not need a license to gig or catch frogs. However if you sell them you need a $25.00 dollar Freshwater Commercial Fishing license.
