Somebody who hasn't been stopped from posting there should ask him if the Walther CP88 Co2 pistiol (and numerous similar) is section 5, LOL!
Slightly off course but, the CP88 and nearly all fullbore handgun CO2 copies are NOT semi-auto. They are revolvers; the bullet is first pulled into line with the barrel (revolved) and then fired by the trigger action.
In a semi-auto firearm the trigger activates a bullet to be fired from the barrel immediately, a gas or mechanically operated system loads a second bullet into the breech ready for discharge without any further pull of the trigger. Left untouched a revolver has an empty breech, a S/A does not.
