Regulations

Postby wjarrell » Mon Jan 27, 2014 9:34 pm

I was told years ago that there are additional regulations associated with wildlife refuges and areas aside from the California regs. For example I was told that you can't use a 10 gauge on the refuges but you can on private land. I've looked on the dfg website but I can't find anything specific to refuges. Can someone point me to the right direction?

Ya I know the 25 shell possession law but I thought there was a 10 gauge law and a law that you could only use a certain size shot or smaller.

The skybusting is already bad. Could you imagine guys with 10ga out there. This is my nightmare. They should make it 20ga only. That would weed out the yuppies.

I'm not a skybuster, I don't agree with it at all, and it irritates me when I see it, but I don't care if we all had to shoot .410's there will always be sky busters.

Already have 10 game shotgun at the refuge. Hello? 3 1/2" 12 ga. throws the big load up in the sky like the 10. Unless things have changed T shot was the largest at the refuges and F on private.

Page 40 of the regulations booklet. 1st full paragraph:

(2) Except as otherwise provided, no shotguns
larger than twelve gauge
and no rifles, pellet
guns, combination rifle-shotguns, pistols,
archery equipment, or revolvers shall be
possessed in the field or discharged on any Type
A or Type B areas. All legal firearms and archery
equipment may be used on Type C areas unless
prohibited (see subsection 551(q)).


There it is. :thumbsup:
If at first you don't succeed, maybe skydiving isn't for you.
