    Does a CCl give you the right to carry an umbrella gun or a bananna pistol or any other firearm that looks like something else? Also has anyone ever owned or fired a disguised weapon?:cool:

    AOW

    Look at the definition of, Any Other Weapon. You will need an NFA tax stamp ($5) for AOW

    Too bad, I was looking at Austin Powers and the Fembots on youtube and it aroused my curiosity. The govt. takes all the fun out of everything.

    Maybe an SS belt buckle gun. It's C&R, but at well over $15K not practical when the police take it. Besides, a belt buckle the size of 2 or 3 cigarette packs with SS runes and a big swastika isn't really sneaky.

    ha! yeah.... I think that would draw more than a little attention... there are these NAA .22 mini-revolver belt buckles But not nearly as cool as a banana gun or umbrella gun... or fembot...

    Hahahahaha!!!:laugh:
    Priceless!

    But seriously folks, wasn't it in Doctor Zhivago where somebody says, "Ah - a knife! But when you put it with a fork and a spoon,...."

    Likewise, a guy I know in CA always carries a baseball bat in his car - along with a ball and glove.

    So sword canes or whatever may be cool as heck, but the real game is about hiding things in plain sight.

    How about a firearm made to look like a squirt gun or one of those nerf dart shooting rifles? I'll bet someone has already made one of these. Talk about hidden in plain sight! Just don't let Jr. get hold of it.

    Some dude in TN tried open-carrying his AK-style pistol... with the muzzle painted orange like a toy. Local LEOs did not approve.

    That guy is one that went looking for trouble and got it. He was not an innocent victim of any kind. I read a lot about it a year or so ago there are PAGES of stuff about him across the gun boards.

    I cant recall the specifics of that one but I know in WA it would not be illegal to do that. Not smart to go looking for trouble doing that, but not illegal. Just because you are right does not mean you wont end up detained/arrested/in court and costing you lots of $$$.

    I think legal or not legal painting the muzzle of a gun Orange is reckless to the point of willful negligence.

    Well I did try a banana gun once but I couldnt fire the dang thing, my finger kept slipping off the trigger. The umbrella gun doesnt work in the Pacific North West either cause its always in umbrella mode and the powder gets wet every time.

    I just wish these guys would start producing these. Talk about a good hiking/camping carry. This would be a Glock based firearm I would buy.

    Yeah, but that still strikes me as mind-bogglingly reckless...

    That was originally a Eugene Stoner design. I would definitely buy one if someone produced them.

    It was my understanding that anything that can be shot while still in it's disguised configuration is a controlled item.

    Two examples come to mind.

    Cobray used to make something called the "operational briefcase". It was an average looking briefcase designed to carry the Mac-10. It had a small hole on the side which functioned as a firing port. A lever led from the trigger to the case handle. It was classed as an "assassination device" and required a tax stamp. (I've heard that the secret service has something similiar for protection details)

    Galco used to produce a "wallet holster" for the AMT backup. It resembled a leather wallet but had a hole in the center for the trigger and a pin inside which activated the grip safety. ATF shut down production of these and I believe using one requires an AOW.
