    Might try moving to a state with rules more to your liking.

    So moving to another state is more realistic than voicing opposition to WTF rules?

    Now I finally have some of my own space to shoot. The rules were too much. Always the idiots are driving rules of behavior on the law abiding, grrr. (Such as 'reasonable' gun control!)

    I just assumed the limits were because of excess damage to target holders etc. and the fact the PGC ranges are for sighting-in rather than recreation or practice. But I have seen some idiocy going on at public spaces, too.
    How does having mag limits reduce damage to target holders? If someone is going to shoot target holders it can be done three rounds at a time. Right?

    Yes, a number of other states have mag limits for hunting.

    I don't know about Sunday hunting in other states.

    And some states prohibit semi-auto rifles for hunting by proxy because they prohibit all rifle hunting - shotgun and/or muzzleloader or handgun only due to flat land or high population density.

    You are the one that brought up the topic of Sunday hunting and semi autos for hunting

    I believe you were the first one to throw out comparisons to unrelated rules and laws.

    And we are also discussing privately held property by a public entity for the use of hunters.

    Since the PAGC holds the title to the property, they can institute policies on how it is used.

    We here aren't real fans of the policy either, but we also know we personally don't own that land. And just like any other service or venue, if you don't like the rules - either get them changed or go elsewhere.
