Bow and crossbow equated to hunting weapons
In Russia, a law came into force that equated the bow and crossbow to civilian hunting weapons. As in the case of traditional rifles, they must be registered with the Russian Guard and obtain permission to store and carry.
As the RIA News, with reference to the document, the bow is now considered a hunting throwing small arms. It is indicated that it does not have mechanisms for fixing elastic elements in a stressed state, and the strength of its arc is more than 27 kilogram-forces.
The law notes the features of the crossbow. It is defined as a missile shooting weapon, which has a mechanism for fixing elastic elements in a stressed state, while the arc force exceeds 43 kilogram-forces.
