In a major regulations change that could influence other shotgun-only areas, the state of Indiana will allow rifles chambered for pistol cartridges for the upcoming deer season.
From the Times-Union:
_Allowed under the new regulation are rifles with pistol cartridges that fire a bullet of .357-inch diameter or larger, have a minimum case length of 1.16 inches and a maximum case length of 1.625 inches. . . .
Local gun shop owners said the new rule is already generating excitement among customers.
"A lot of guys have heard about it and they're excited about it," said Dave Housouer, owner of Eagle Creek Shooting Supply Co., Warsaw.
Kirk Johnson, owner of Albertson's Sport Shop, said the new rule will attract new hunters.
"I think it's going to generate a lot of interest with people who haven't been able to deer hunt before," said Johnson. "People who can't shoot shotguns because of the recoil will be able to shoot these rifles."_
