We can get semi-auto as well, but there are limitations.
For centerfire semi-autos, 5 round magazines only. The interesting things is that the 5 round mags are just 20 or 30's that are pinned.
Rimfire semi-autos can have 10rd mags, but it isn't uncommon to see 20's and 30's because most of those guns never leave the farm, so there is little chance of getting caught.
Also, things like AR's, semi-auto handguns, and some others are considered "restricted". Which means you have to have a certain type of acquisition license (not difficult to obtain). The downside is that restricted weapons can only be used at certain locations (or your own property) and if you are caught with them anywhere else or not en-route to one of those locations you will pay for it.
