Default Indiana Rifles

Now I know that the rifle law is a trial endeavor up until 2020 if I'm not mistaken. My question to you fellas is, will Indiana ever allow a more variety of calibers before then? I have a 7mm-08 that wants to go hunting some deer real bad>

Take it on a short drive south into Kentucky. Tons more deer. Tons more woods to hunt. And any caliber you want.

Uh.....yeah.
About that. ⬆️

I know, I know....your joking.

In all seriousness I believe yes at the end of the 4 year stint they will open it up to all calibers .24 and above.

I believe it will open up to all rifle cartrides .24 and up as long as the related accident rate stays the same as pre rule change. That said I have 35 Whelen that will see some time. However, my 30-06 dropped two deer already this year and both went down quickly and expired humanely. Not much more I can ask for.

Cartridges for My Entertainment: .223 Rem, 30-06, 38 spcl, 357 mag/max, 358 MGP, 35 Whelen, and soon the 358 Norma Mag. I can't right now I am going hunting!

From the gun shots I have heard since season opened, I dont think there are many people this way who have went high power. Heard a lot of shotguns and muzzle loaders. I have been carrying my 308. Problem is it likes watching deer instead of picking one

About two years ago, and idiot redneck who lived about 5 miles from me decided to sight in his .30-06 rifle.


He lived in a house trailer on a 2 acre lot. There was a patch of hardwoods, about 2 acres, on one of his boundaries.


He nailed his target to a tree, and sighted in his rifle.


The next day, an old woman who lived in the house next to him was found dead in her home, killed with a .30-06 round.


He was arrested, tried and convicted of murder, for reckless disregard of human life. He got 10 years. Thankfully, no laws got changed about using rifles in my county.


Point is, sooner or later, somebody is going to get killed from somebody doing something stupid in Indiana with a high powered rifle. The press will lap it up, run the story day and night, and say it is because Indiana re-allowed previously banned firearms. One can only hope that the backlash isn't too severe.

Well, the only thing I can say to that Manny is let's pray that that doesn't happen to anyone else. I hope it doesn't. However, right now using a rifle is legal and i want to sniper one with my rifle.
