In Zone B in Maryland you are not aloud to hunt with a riffle for deer. But what about for upland Game like squirrel? Can I use a .22 for that? What about an air riffle, 1000fps? I'm not talking about my back yard but the public hunting areas in Montgomery County.

NO .22 in Mongtomger county at all. An "air Gun" is breach loaded and can NOT be used either. Dumb law but it true.
