I'm curious, would one of those be strong enough to "scare" a burglar if I shot at him a couple of time?
IF you have a brand new CO2 cartridge it wil definitely hurt. May even penetrate the skin. But it's not advisable, it's better to call 911. BUT IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR LIFE IS IN DANGER the law allows you to respond with deadly force, if necessary.

If you use something in the manner of a firearm it magically becomes a firearm under Canadian law
True if you rob a bank with an imitation, not true if you pull it on a burglar.

Goal would def. not be to kill, but just to "hurt" enough to have them go away. I would never kill someone else, even if they were robbing me, unless they gave me no other choice, and I highly doubt any kind of airgun could cause health-treatening issue anyway.

Once you shoot that burglar with it and it hurts enough for him to run away, he'll be back with the real thing to take revenge.

I assume you can't use this in your backyard to shoot targets? You have to go into the woods or somewhere away from the city where there's no people?

If you aim for the eyes you would definitely send them to the ER and they may even lose their vision. Even worse if you use pellets instead of BB balls.

Some cities have bylaws against it. Some don't care. All you risk is a fine (just like a parking fine), it's not a criminal issue. Google is your friend.

I bought one of these last time it was on sale. I took a test shot at the floor on laminate and it bounced and took out a window. Haven't used it since I realize it's too dangerous to use it indoors and I think i might scare the neighbors if I use it in my backyard.

I prefer the longer muzzle .22 calibre pellet pistols. Those hurt a lot more and are all metal construction.

Secondary question if they are too weak: Would they be fine for shooting at squirrel WITHOUT hurting them (Just annoy them)? (Goal is the get them to leave the birds feeders alone)
For your rober question, maybe get duals like neo.

But pls no animals because this is strong enough to seriously injure them or worse

However, all of the items listed below are considered to be firearms if used in a criminal or negligent manner." (emphasis added)
...
Air guns and other barreled weapons designed to have:
A muzzle velocity of 152.4 meters per second or less and/or

This is exactly it, thanks for clarifying.

You genuinely sound like a bad person. Go away.

Please clarify. I dont like your usage of the words "bad person" to describe me, nor do I understand why you used those words.
