    Is there a legal length a handgun barrel has to be to hunt in Ohio?

    Straight from the ODNR Hunting Regulations book:

    Gun Season and Youth Deer Gun Season - 10, 12, 16, 20, 28, or .410 gauge shotgun using one ball or one rifled slug per barrel (rifled shotgun barrels are permitted when using shotgun slug ammunition); or muzzleloading rifle .38 caliber or larger; or handgun with 5-in. minimum length barrel, using straight-walled cartridges .357 caliber or larger, or longbow, crossbow (draw weight limitations same as for Archery Season). Shotguns cannot be capable of holding more than three shells.

    So that requires a 5" pipe. done.

    Oh, and in case you ask, Revolver Barrel length is measured from the face of the forcing cone to the end of the muzzle, excluding the cylinder. A semi-auto is measured from the breech face with the weapon closed, so it includes the chamber.
