pigeon shooting?

3 posts in this topic

Can I use a shot gun that holds more than three rounds for shooting pigeons?
Regulations regarding magazine capacity only apply when "taking" game birds and/or mammals (California Code of Regulations Title 14, sections 311, 353 and 507). The 3-round shell restriction does not apply when using a shotgun to take furbearing or nongame species, or when shooting targets, skeet/trap, sporting clays, etc. (CCR Title 14, sections 465 and 475).Fish and Game Code section 2010 does limit shotguns to no more than six shells when taking "any bird or mammal" and there are Penal Code sections restricting large capacity firearms. Additional information regarding large capacity firearms is available from the Bureau of Firearms Web site at http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/. IMHO I think it's going to depend on whether or not pigeons are considered Non-game species. If not, I'd say you'd be good to go with up to six rounds. Ed
