From the SF Municipal Code on weapons (source):
Quote:
SEC. 4501. DEFINITIONS.
The following words and phrases, whenever used in this Article, shall be construed as defined in this Section:
(a) "Firearm" means any device, designed to be used as a weapon or modified to be used as a weapon, that expels a projectile by the force of an explosion or other form of combustion.
(b) "Projectile weapon" means any device or instrument used as a weapon which launches or propels a projectile by means other than the force of an explosion or other form of combustion with sufficient force to cause injury to persons or property. A projectile weapon shall include, but not be limited to, air gun, air pistol, air rifle, gas operated gun, BB gun, pellet gun, flare gun, dart gun, bow, cross-bow, slingshot, wrist rocket, blow gun, paint gun, or other similar device or instrument.

So, yeah, the city will have a bit of a problem with your buddy using a full-auto BB gun.
