I'm not sure what happened to the thread from yesterday, and I am assuming it got locked as I couldn't find it anywhere. Regardless, I am hoping that someone can help me with a question. Is there a barrel length restriction in the new bill? I am looking at the Henry big loop carbines and they only have a 16.5" barrel. They have .38/.357 mag, .44 mag, and .45 LC models available, and I think the .38/.357 mag would be an ideal youth gun.

Thank you in advance!

16" would make it a rifle, therefore good to go.


Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You're making a scene.'

Awesome and thank you for the information. The Henry Big Boy carbine with 16.5" barrel comes in at only 6.5 lbs. and still holds 7+1 rounds. It is drilled and tapped for optics as well.

My fingers and toes are crossed for passage in the senate!

Someone had posted the bill info on here, I can't find it today either but it was here last night. Basically it said that for certain seasons, including shotgun 1 and 2 and youth, that you can use rifles that shoot the same straight wall calibers that are legal during handgun seasons.

I had not known anything about it prior to that post either, but feel it is a pretty cool idea.

I would swear I posted a question on this a few days ago. Just a rumor from my end, but it would be nice to use a levergun to shoot an Iowa deer

Cool, we just ordered one of the Big Boys for our NWTF banquet next year. It may be in high demand!

Would that also include the 460 magnum? It's almost more of a rifle cartridge.

Imagine TC will have a barrel for it already?

Hope they add this as I have a few that could fit the bill. Would be fun to deer hunt with a lever action.

When you're up to your ass in alligators, it becomes difficult to remind yourself that your initial objective was to drain the swamp.

OH yeah, Legal so why not?!?

Add a couple of these and I could really keep a herd moving or fill some tags!

Then again something in 460 S&W would be really interesting. A Big Horn Armoury Model 90 would probably fit in my stocking if Santa wanted to drop it off! I would settle for a TC in 460S&W Mr. Green

Having killed a couple deer with .45 acp I would say hit them early and often. Doable but not optimal, though with rifle length barrel may be a bit better.

I would be all for this law though, have several options I'd love to try!

Here's what I'm using. A 45-70 and my 44 magnum should do fine.

So the way I see it anyone hunting is allowed to use a straight wall rifle resodent or non resident? Reason I ask is I'm a non resident that muzzleloader hunts but would love to take my 1895 abl 45/70 out during shotgun season.
