    Modifications and clarification on tube magazines for .22 and shotguns.

    There have been a few posts floating about regarding the above, and certainly, I am getting a lot of questions, but, until I confirmed with an 'official' page - I didn't want to post anything. But now it is.

    So.

    You can potentially pin a .22 with more than 10 round capacity, or shotgun with more than 5. You can also cut the tube down.

    However – it needs to be a ‘permanent’ modification – so the word ‘pin’ is not really the correct one to be using. I would suggest a pin, or something easy removable will get in hot water.

    As, I note, likely to cause a few headaches – is putting more than 5 short shotgun rounds into a tube that can only hold five ‘breach length’ cartridges. I.e. don’t play those games – it always makes me nervous when I read something that includes the words ‘the intent is’ – as that likely means the specific regulation/law has enough leeway within it to be interpretable. You don’t want to get into an argument with a cop around firearms on interpretation. It won’t work out well.

As ambassadors for tramping, hunting, and just being nice human beings, there are some basic principles we should all be applying A lot of this comes down to one simple principle - consideration for others. Consideration for others is the simplest and best guide for co-inhabiting a hut. It is not a bad starting point for humanity either. This article puts forward some simple considerations and pointers for the next time you find yourself in a shared hut.
