    Default Why do you think PA resists allowing semi auto rifles for deer hunting?

    Why do you think PA resists allowing the use of semi auto rifles for deer hunting?

    Is it an effort to minimize justification of AR ownership?

    Extreme fuddism
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Because PA is backward and tradition.
    Sticks and stones will break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

    Resistance from older hunters who grew up only knowing one way. I think accuracy and a clean ethical harvest is of absolute importance. What firearm was used is not important at all as long as it meets a caliber range.

    In the meantime, no reason not to use an AR with this...

    Nice. A pistol in either version makes a great brush gun too.

    Exactly fudds. Pa. Has disallowed semi auto for hunting since 1907. The fudds have held sway since then with their discriminatory blue laws and traditional views. Fortunately, they are dropping like flies and soon will be no more.

    Every time a drunken old fudd goes to his reward is a good day. One less flannel-clad dickhead to mind someone else*s business.

    I have one for my AR-15 and my AR-10 but I'm afraid to use them. I'm worried a Game Warden would seize the gun and you would have to prove it's not semi auto somehow. That would be tough to do when they have your gun. I also wonder if it would be an issue since it's not permanently switched. I know you can't do anything without the original bolt but I don't know if that would matter to them. I've had some that were great and others that were complete pricks so I don't know how that would go. I'm not willing to risk $1k rifle when I can just use my 30-06 pump.

    The older generation of hunters are all one shot one kill snipers with their 30-30's so they don't see the need to turn the woods into a "war zone" with semi autos. I'm sure they kill a deer every ten years so they know what they are talking about.
