New Airgun Hunting Laws in Texas? Not Yet!

Back in February we published a story about the proposed new airgun hunting laws in Texas.

Well, sadly it seems that – unlike the recent moves in Tennessee and Arkansas – these positive proposals have not succeeded.

In fact they were rescinded at a public meeting at Lubbock, TX on May 24 🙁

Hard Air Magazine was not at this meeting. However Thurmond Moore from T3P Ranch AirGun Solutions was at the meeting and gave evidence in favor of the new proposals.

Thurmond reports that several notable airgun experts were also present and gave evidence – including John McCaslin from AirForce Airguns.

The outcome from the meeting was – Thurmond reports – that the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department intends to re-write the rules. A new proposal is expected to be presented at a meeting in August 2018.

So all is not lost for new airgun hunting laws in Texas!

For more background, check out the story at the T3P Ranch AirGun Solutions website.
