    Next thing you know there will be loaded pickups parked outside Kittles and the like with sleazy looking guys alongside holding boxes hidden in their sleeves and just waiting for poor suckers like Pete

    Sorry to hear of the issues OFH... this state sure makes things tough on people.. I'm sure you and/or Pete were trying to play by the rules and do it right, but I'm sure someone would have kicked down a box if asked around with the delima.. I would have offered, I don't care what the law says on shells..If I want to give or sell someone a legally obtained box of ammo by me I'll do as I please with it, as I think it's the stupidest thing I have heard of..

    Thanks Win, from here on out Pete will come shelled up. And Mark what do you want to bet that a really significant black market is going to develop over time over this problem? Will be interesting to track it

    I’m not sure how the law works but I flew to Utah a couple weeks ago and took a few boxes of Hevi Metal with me to hunt with Brayden. When I arrived I found a pamphlet telling me that TSA had checked my bag but all my shells were there. I hunted the weekend a flew home on the same airline. When I got home and unpacked my hunting gear I found the same pamphlet telling me that TSA had opened my bag. The difference this time was they took my shells, they were all gone. They even took the ones out of the pockets in my game bag. I’m not sure why this happened but they took 2 boxes and a few loose rounds.

    I figured this was my Newsom tax. I love this guy:flame. Anyone else have this happen to them?

    TSA is a fed agency. How would they be enforcing a state law (not Newsom's doing but de Leon's and Brown's)? And that many really expensive shells is getting into some serious money they bilked you out of. But probably no way to follow up on it.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Pete,

    Sorry to hear about your son. Glad to hear he will make adjustments next time. It’s happened to a few guys. Even those living here.

    Pete, or most anyone on this board, sometimes I hunt near Colusa. Had you pm’d me or posted an SOS, if near, I would have met him with shells in a heartbeat; legality be damned.
