My friend from Hawaii was coming out of his private hunting land and was stopped by game officials for a routine check. They found he was hunting with a 50cal Sam Yang and wrote him a ticket. When he went to court to fight the ticket they said airguns of any kind where not legal weapons to hunt pigs or other animals in Hawaii. He is working hard to get big bores legal and his charges where dropped, but as of now if you are caught it is not legal. What a stupid law!!!!! Hope he can get this changed or classed as a legal hunting weapon.
