    The term "black gun" is use to mean normally one on the restricted list...

    I hunt with lots of non conventional stuff. Robinson Arms XCR in 6.8 SPC for large game, Tavor for coyotes, Beretta CX4 for small game. I've deer hunted with a CZ858 before as well.

    And why not? If it's legal to do so and adds to your personal enjoyment of the hunt it shouldn't be a problem. Hunters/shooters who speak out in public against other forms of hunting and shooting do a disservice to us all.

    Hiding "scary" guns only makes the general public more jumpy when they're seen in the field. If it was a more common thing to see modern firearms in the field it wouldn't be so alarming when they're seen.

    Most non-hunters I know are more curious about guns than afraid. Most would probably love to spend and afternoon on the range burning off a few boxes of ammo with a gun that looks like something they've only seen in the movies. We should all take an intrigued "fence sitter" out shooting when we get the chance. Can't see there being too many occasions where someone would come away from that with anything other than a more practical view of the firearms they handled.

    Did you talk to the OFAH about this? What did they have to say?

It is absolutely unacceptable. We don't drive Model T's anymore, and our firearms have evolved similarly. My Robinson Arms XCR functions no differently than the average wood stocked Remington 7600. OFAH needs to support ALL members, and hunters/shooters as a whole.

    Unlike yourself I like them, own several (and shoot them often), but I do not hunt with them. Not because of their functionality but because they are too expensive to be slugging around in the rain and crap. There are other (cheaper) options when it comes to that application (ie) hunting guns.

    But I agree with your post that we need to support each other - If they come after my 'black' guns today they will come after your 870 tomorrow.
