The “Circuit Judge” is a .45 Long Colt/.410 shotshell revolver-type rifle. If you look at the pictures in the article, it shows the 5-shot cylinder fitted with a removable plastic “plug” so the hunter can “comply with the game laws.” We have reviewed the article with folks in the Migratory Bird Management program. It appears that the plug can be removed without disassembling the gun. Disassembling is a key component to our regulations in 20.21(b) on what hunting methods are illegal. Since you can remove the plug without disassembling the firearm, the Migratory Bird Management Office has advised us that this gun should be deemed as illegal to use to take migratory birds. Our regulations state that no persons shall take migratory game birds: 20.21(b) With a shotgun of any description capable of holding more than three shells, unless it is plugged with a 1-piece filler, incapable of removal without disassembling the gun, so its total capacity does not exceed three shells. However, this restriction does not apply during: (1) A light-goose-only season (greater and lesser snow geese and Ross’ geese) when all other waterfowl and crane hunting seasons, excluding falconry, are closed. (2) A Canada goose only season when all other waterfowl and crane hunting seasons, excluding falconry, are closed in the Atlantic, Central and Mississippi Flyway portions of Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, as set forth below: (i) During the period of September 1 to September 15, when approved in the annual regulatory schedule in subpart K of this part; and (ii) During the period of September 16 to September 30, when approved in the annual regulatory schedule in subpart K of this part.

It gave me the willies the first time I saw a picture of him with a semi-automatic in his hands instead of a sixgun. It borders on the absurd. It is just wrong. Lots of guys gave Duke a hard time over the Hawaiian shirt. I thought it a bit odd until I realized he could easily sneak up on bad guys in a flower garden that way. Sort of a special event camo. I don’t know how you came across Pat Covert, but you have got the right guy. I met him at a knife show long ago, and as you all can see, he knows his stuff, and can make a knife along with the best of them. I’d like to know, but never will, what he really thinks about some of the silly grinds and designs I see these days. Some of these blades would be in their own way if you tried to use them, and be extremely difficult to sharpen. One thing that needs to be said is that there is a reason professional hunters and survival trainers carry a sheath knife over a folder, and so should you when going into the wilds. You have two great magazines there and I hope they live on forever.
