Title: Q on legality of airguns for hunting in L.A. County
Post by: on September 27, 2007, 12:42:30 AM


The 2007 DFG Mammal Hunting Regulations mentions airguns in its legal methods of take
like this:



-----------------
311. Methods Authorized for Taking Resident
Small Game.

Only the following may be used to take resident
small game:

(f) Air rifles firing pellets and powered by compressed
air or gas (0.20 caliber minimum for taking
wild turkey); and firearm rifles and pistols for taking
rabbits and squirrels, except in Los Angeles County,
in addition to the methods listed in (a), (b), (c), (d)
and (e) above.



-----------------





My question concerns that "except in Los Angeles County" statement.





It looks like they're saying that firearm rifles & pistols can't be used to take



rabbits & squirrels in LA County but it's OK to use air rifles.  Is that correct?



Or, are they both illegal to use?

i would say neither are allowed. The airgun reference was for min cal on turkeys.
