Shotgun hunting question
#1
question 
I just got a maverick 88 and was thinking of using it for small game like squirrels and rabbits.

A friend of mine who has lived here in PA for a long time told me I need to get a plug to keep my capacity to 2+1, but I had read that that was only for birds. I tried googling and all I found was § 141.22 which says I have to use nothing larger than #4 shot.

So do I need to get a plug or not?

Quote:Firearms – Magazine Capacity
Manual or autoloading shotguns to hunt small game, furbearers,
turkeys, waterfowl or crows must be limited to a 3-shell capacity
in the chamber and magazine combined. A plug must be a onepiece
filler installed so it cannot be readily removed without
disassembling the gun or magazine.

Thanks! I saw links to that when I googled but "Digest" isn't really a word I'd associate with laws or regulations so I didn't check.

I wish this kind of stuff, that actually matters, was covered in the mandatory safety instruction instead of common sense stuff like "don't point your gun at people". Rolleyes

Your bet bet,outside of picking up a book at the courthouse or places that sell licenses, is the Game Commission website. They have a download-able book there as well as the rules and regs listed there.
