Flintlock season regulation question....

On page 22 of the current PA hunting and trapping digest under " Late flintlock season" it says...
" Flintlock ignition, Single barrel long guns manufactured prior to 1800, or a similar reproduction of an original muzzle loading single barrel long gun 44 cal or larger, or 50 caliber or larger handgun, Using a single projectile.

My question... " Or a 50 caliber or larger handgun" Does this mean my .500 S&W is no longer useless? lol

Re: Flintlock season regulation question....

If you convert it to "flintlock ignition" and single shot then is could be used.

Re: Flintlock season regulation question....

Common sence tells me that they are reffering to a 50 cal flintlock pistol, BUT, It looks like it could be undestood as any 50 cal or larger handgun.

In detail it says " Flintlock ignition, Single barrel long guns manufactured prior to 1800, or a similar reproduction of an original muzzle loading single barrel long gun 44 cal or larger" and then " or any 50 cal or larger handgun."

You would think they would be more specific and word it like " flintlock ignition, single barrel 50 cal or larger pistol with single projectile" ....

You would think that but it was written by our legiscritters, the same ones that can't pass a budget.

is before the first comma it is the introductory clause for the entire sentence covering both following clauses. The "or" ties the pistol to the long gun as the adjective after the comma in the two clauses after the main clause.

Its correct Englishing.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.
