So really the question has to do with shotgun vs. rifle vs. handgun, not so much with centerfire vs. rimfire. Thus my previous question. The OP stated centerfire.....well, technically, all those listed in the responses are centerfire.

I should clarify, centerfire as in rifles. My apologies.

You can come to NH and hunt w/ centerfires in the top 2/3rds. We have some monster whitetail. If you have a license from the previous year, and a current one you can enter the Moose lottery. Tons of Black bear. You should see our Coyotes. They are a cross w/ the Quebec wolf. 65lb, not a problem. 45lb is the norm. Better bring appropriate clothing. We can get white out conditions in late October.

Try driving into Mass w/ a rifle. Your gonna be pissed! Colt BTW is made in Conn., not Mass. . S&W are in Mass.

On Ma. gun laws. 1 year jail time for any firearm not registered in Ma.

I went to a shoot a number of years ago in NY. I was pulled over, why because I was still wearing my shooting shirt. We had taken 2 cars. The State trooper wanted to take our rifles, even though we had the info on the shoot and we could transport through the commonwealth. We had put the bolts in one car, and the rest in mine. Since none was a working rifle, he took my .308 ammo. About 500 rounds. I hate that Commonwealth w/ a passion. Nothing but liberals and @ssholes.

In Ky you can use any centerfire rifle .224 and bigger. In. has pistol caliber only rifle hunting. Oh, IL, and Iowa all are no rifle zones as to the best of my knowledge.
