Is it legal to use a semi auto 22 pistol for trapping in PA?
limited to semiautomatic or manually operated 22-caliber rimfire
or smaller rifles,
manually operated 22-caliber or smaller
Nope, as highlighted above it is only semiauto for the rifles, handguns must be manually operated. Apparently when they were making the legislation semi auto rifles were allowable but handguns were a bit to far for them to wrap their heads around and as such purposely left out.So it's OK to dispatck trapped animals with a semiauto handgun,but not OK to hunt small game with a semiauto handgun.
Help me understand ???????????????? How did someone come to that conclusion?
