Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Here in Texas, it's perfectly legal to hunt with semi automatic rifles. As far as I know, I have never heard of a limit on capacity. I've never seen someone hunt with something larger than a 20-30 round magazine though. Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there.

WV is legal, but think there is a 5rd capacity limit.

I have a question. If your going to hunt with an AK and can only have 5 round capacity, can you use a standard 30 round magazine and fashion a device to limit 5 rounds in that magazine (sort of like the mag limiter in a shotgun - "dowel rod")?


Hawk,

Hawk,
I really dont know..


I did find this on their site. Appears a 5rnd isn't necessary. Its been 3-4 years since I hunted down there.

My opinion If I had a deer of a lifetime in front of me the last gun I would want in my hand is an ak.
