  •  Also, I come from a hunting family with hunting (1+ / 0-)

    friends, and I can say definitively (and anecdotally) that the only time I've seen semi-auto capability is on shotguns and sidearms.

    I see what you did there.

    •  There are plenty of semiautomatic hunting rifles (1+ / 0-)

      None of them had more than a 4-5 shot capability.  Remington, Winchester, and Browning, to name a few, all make legitimate hunting rifles that are semiautomatic.  Then there's all those .22 semiautomatics like the Ruger10/22 or Marlin model 60 that are used for hunting small game.

      •  Nope. And I know damn well they're not (0+ / 0-)

        necessary, given the crack shots I've been around in my lifetime.

        It's not relevant because semi-auto rifles would only be restricted as far as any other gun that exceeded the fire rate requirement, but if you need a semi-auto hunting rifle then you're not a proficient handler of the weapon, or you're using too small a caliber.

        I see what you did there.
