If he can hit a dove in the air with that, there will be 2 things that are true.
1) He is a FAR better shot than I.
2) There will be nothing left of the dove but feathers.

I always carry a handgun when I go fishing. Even before I got my CHL. Why? Cottonmouths! I killed on just a couple of weeks ago with my old S&W Model 28 .357.

:lol: No. I do have an Anschutz 1710 that the original owner used to kill a dove on the wing. Hit in the eye. True story! I can't remember his name since it's illegal to do that. I did shoot a quail with my .357 with a shot load once and that's legal. Wasn't very sporting (on the ground), but I was hungry.

You do remember that thread correctly, but there was also another very important part. There must also be someone that will make the complaint to the police that the law has been broken. If it is only you and your friend, which one of you is that going to be?

Seems like two conclusions come from this.

We should not infringe the right to keep and bear without due process.

In the present flawed climate, an LTC is a handy thing.

And speaking of the present flawed and un-thawed climate, OWB under a coat, nice! :mrgreen:

You don't shoot a quail on the ground here, you ain't going to eat quail.

??? That's a puzzling statement, yes I have shot quail on the ground, hunting Texas hill country if you have ever encountered the scaled quail, they would rather run than fly, I have chased them on the ground to get them to flush and they just ran faster, got tired of trying and did a pan shot, got three with one shot, took them back to camp, deep fried them to a golden brown, had quail with wild rice, most excellent!

:iagree: I guess you had to be there. The illegal aliens coming through the ranch had broken into the camp house and stolen all the food. We killed a scrawny jack rabbit as well as a few quail by the feeders. Almost had to scrape the meat off the rabbit bones! We were there to work on deer stands and had nothing but our pistols for snakes. I've never hunted scaled quail, but I had a friend who grew up in the Valley and he said the way they hunted them was to chase them in plowed fields and shoot them when the ran over the top of the furrows. BTW we had permission to be on the property, even met the Game Warden. he asked for our id and licensees. He had seen a open cross fence gate from the road and stopped by to check things out. He helped us get unstuck from a dry sandy creek bed. He saw the quail in the bed of the truck while he was helping to push and said nothing about them. I assume because quail season was open.

You could say the same thing about making a suppressor without getting permission from the BATFED.

Or smoking marijuana. :evil2:

True enough and while it is not good to condone illegal activity I, along with many others in that thread, am merely pointing out that someone would have to make the complaint. And also, IIRC, it would be important to note who at least one of those folks were.
