Not that easy in NY

Response to .72 benefits...

Hi Dave,
Years ago NY listed a "Firearm" as any gun that uses gun powered, gas, spring, air or any explosive force to propel a load. So back then I could have used my 20 gauge LD air shotgun loaded with a slug. But now they have specifically listed in the game law rules " You may not hunt Big Game with an airgun"
But here is a real kick in the pants... In NY it is legal to hunt Deer with any centerfire rifle. So I can LEGALLY take a deer with my 22 Hornet, but not with my BBB 58.

Go BIG or go home!!!!!
