Smallbore Hunter Pistol 12" rule

Post by Sporty » Sat Oct 06, 2018 5:14 pm

Wouldn't it be nice to include the .22 LR Mare's Leg in Smallbore Hunter Pistol? However, the barrel is 0.875" too long to qualify. What are the chances the NRA silhouette committee will make a rule change to include that pistol? I'm certain Henry Repeating Arms won't shorten the barrel for a niche market.

No.
I'm curious. Why not?

Because it is Hunter's Pistol Silhouette. Not Hunter's Pistol Shortened Lever Action Rifle Silhouette.

But, the Mare's Leg is a pistol.

Our club's smallbore lever action match director is seriously considering including Hunter's Pistol Metallic Sights and I was just looking for a reason to get a smallbore Mares Leg since I don't hunt with a pistol.
