    Default When are semi autos legal for small game?

    Sorry but I never saw a starting date. I was going to take an AR15 for a ground hog hunt, but I think I read they are not legal until next season. So when are they allowed?

    This gives plenty of time to start working up loads. Vmax, Varmageddon , Blitzking, Varmint Grenade...so many fun possibilities. Gentlemen, start your reloading presses!

    I think the final vote will be in June.

    It will be nice to see over the course of the next couple of years the Fuddism put to its deserved death via conversion to reality. It might take one squirrel, groundhog, and coyote at a time but it will be done. 10/22's and Marlin 60's are irresistible for even the hardest of the hardcore, and once some chucks start getting zapped by Noveskes, White Oaks, and LaRues that outshoot all the cheapy or even not so cheap bolt guns then reality WILL finally reign in PA.

    No no on the 9mm, Its all here, July 1st

    http://www.pgc.pa.gov/HuntTrap/Law/D...g%20Digest.pdf

    In short , Small game only, 22 caliber or less semi auto rifle, no capacity restrictions, manually operated handguns
    scroll down to page 46 in the digest

    Pennsylvania really needs to get with the times or hunting will rot like roadkill here. there are literally thousands of young veterans that have been returning from the sandbox for 20 years and the only exposure they have had to firearms is the
    AR-15/M16/M4 system and would love to hunt big game with them
