Re: long rang hand cannon

Donham,

Here in the People's Republik of Illinois we too are limited to shotguns, bows, etc...no centerfire rifles. We just this year are allowed to handgun hunt, but the regs read 30 caliber or larger, straight-walled case, with a minimum 500 ft lbs. The straight-walled case wording concerns me. I haven't checked yet, but I'd bet that it's worded that way to eliminate bottleneck cartridges specifically.

Shotguns on the other hand don't have to be that debilitating unless you can't utilize rifled barrels. We can, and I have an Ithaca Deerslayer III that will shoot very well out to 100 yards. I haven't tested out to 150 yet.

Re: long rang hand cannon

Can any of you wright and propose a new regulation to to the board of game to change that law, one that actually makes some common sense?

Here in lower Michigan we have the same shotgun straight wall case thing. TC contender with SSK barelb in 444 marlin or 45-70 I shot 2 deer this year with a 45-70 one at 182 yards and one at 175 yards.

Crow Mag,

That's about what I thought I'd be limited to - the 45-70/444 Marlin. What scope do you have on the Thompson?
