    Since MN finally passed CCW, an old question popped up. I have a NAA Mini .22 revolver that came with a wallet holster. Basically, you can put the gun into this square piece of leather and it can be tossed into a pocket. The gun can be fired from this holster. Someone told me that it is not legal to carry this way, something about the holster being banned by the ATF? Does anyone know where to find out about this? I tried the ATF website, but couldn't find anything. Thanks.

    I was told you have to pay a $5 tax stamp for AOW if you are going to use a gun wallet.

    The way I understand it, it's only classified as an AOW if you can fire it while it's still in the wallet (as Big_R's seems to be). If the wallet is purely a holster, but you have to remove the gun from it to fire, then it's just a holster, and NFA does not apply.

    My opinion's worth what you've paid for it. If you're really curious, ask the BATFE.
