    With a pump you would have to be an expert to get off 3 killing shots on flying birds. A semi would make that possible, therefore the limit of 2 shots. Many people hunt with pumps as with a 28 inch barrel they have good balance and throw good patterns. The safety aspect can be a factor as it is not easy to see if it is loaded or not.

    I'm not familiar with EC law, but the above quote from LEMA (act7 of 2003) refers to hunting etc. of wild animals. It actually forbids the use of shotguns altogether (iii).

    There is a different section that deals with hunting of game birds (and hares). This one allows shotguns, but with capacity limits on self-loaders.

    Magazine capacity restriction would only apply to semi-auto's and the restriction would be to limit the number of shots fired before manually reloading to two. Thus 1+1.
