    I just got back from Moscow. On a recreational visit to a gun shop just off red square I saw a guy in a business suit wandering around with a rifle in a soft case. We were 1 block from Putin's helicopter pad in the Kremlin. Tons of cops, no-one cared. They may have been "tourist police", but cops none the less.

    Sometimes, the business suit is a powerful tool.

    I think that's a police one, the 'laughing car' is also police.

    Is it Russia where if you can't carry real bullets? They use those non lethal rubber ones at least for civies.

    My understanding is there are a lot of real looking air guns around Russia, either pellet or tear gas. Some people illegally put a ball in the tear gas gun, making it almost as good as a .25 auto for 1 shot.
    The store I was in had several real pistols (including a clean Nagant, go figure) but there were also uniformed cops/military shopping, so that doesn't speak to civilian law.
