    Sure, if your state allows open carry of handguns.

    You'll have a hell of a time finding a comfortable holster for those. Many places that allow open carry don't specify that it has to be a handgun.

    How is that open carry? :confused:

    One of my Boston friends carried an HK SP89 for about three weeks...then it got old, heavy and was replaced with HK P7M8 :)

    I guess if you've got a nice thick belt and the right holster, go for it!

    Seems like a good way to attract undue negative attention from the
    local constabulary, however.

    no offense but if plan on carrying one of those pistols yoou must be one VERY large individual in which case I wuoldn't want to meet you in a dark alley with or without a gun. IMHO the movies make hiding any of these pistols look easy on screen not very practical in real life

    While I fully support people being able to carry those about :evil:, I can imagine you getting some dodgy looks for doing so. :cool:

    In AZ, legal as long as your not a prohibited possessor. It might get you funky looks, and even a question from local law enforcement, especially how you're dressed. Ragged cammies, Rambo headband, and dirt all over you might attract more attention at Circle K, than say, a business suit, dark sunglasses, and earpiece, while carrying one of these little toys.
    I am thinking about that Keltec pistol.

    I suppose as long as it's not specifically prohibited, you could. But-















    why?:scrutiny:

    I'd put it in an ankle holster and use it as a backup gun to my m60 in my fanny-pack!

    I can imagine you'd be given a hard time if you were walking around with one in public. But you'd be legal.....yet an officer may still arrest you, can they? For suspicious behavior?:confused:

    Anyway, it would sure feel good to literally scare the fecal matter out of all those anti's, soccer moms, liberals, etc, in public.

    HA! You're standing in line and have to use the bathroom.

    You: Hold my spot. Don't let anybody take it.
    Guy/Gal: Yes sir. Of course sir. I will obey all orders sir. :uhoh:

    Oh I crack my self up.:)

    They make me wish South Carolina had open carry:(

    What kind of southern state are we if we can't even have a flippin' pistol on our hip?

    I guess It could be worse. (CA :evil: )

    Yeah, one would think that open carry would be needed in say August in South Carolina?

    Evil, yes, if you so choose. However, if you have the rifle, one does not need a license to carry those here.:)

    "I'd put it in an ankle holster and use it as a backup gun to my m60 in my fanny-pack!"

    I can't do that, with my back problems, I can't bend too well. So, I guess I'm stuck with "Pocket Carry". Maybe a nice Nemesis pocket holster, in my right front pocket, next to the car keys!:neener:

    The rabid anti's are relatively few among the general public; scaring the crap out of fence sitters is not the way to further our agenda.

    Most folks have a somewhat adverse reaction to civilians carrrying normal handguns. What do you think these stockless rifles will do?

    I love my PLR-16, but I am fully aware that seeing a civilian trapsing around with it would make many people hurridly walk, if not run, away in fear. Honestly, if I saw someone walking around with one in plain view I, too, would be on alert.

    My guess is you'd end up in handcuffs for awhile and, at best, told never to do that again. But in many jurisdictions I can imagine youd be charged with menacing or some such.

    No not in Mass since SBRs are illegal under our AWB, unless they where made prior to when the ban went into effect.

    They are considered pistols since they were never mfg. with a shoulder stock, so the barrel can be any length you want. I think if you put a vertical foregrip on one it becomes an AOW. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
    It would be kind of fun but not at all practical. Maybe Comp-Tac will make a CTAC for one, haha

    According to the NFA FAQ, SBRs are still legal in MA.

    While they'd be legal for open carry I think the best use for these'd be as a short, handy car or truck gun.

    Especially in states that allow you to carry a handgun (but don't allow you to carry a rifle or shotgun) in your vehicle.

    Howdy, Armored. Long time, no chat. I'm not too far away from you, and the guy with the earpiece would get more attention than the guy in the camo! But, I'm in Graham County, the former home of Sheriff Richard Mack.;)

    If you can carry one concealed, in most states you'd probably be legal. Of course, in order to carry it concealed you'd need to be large enough to be measured by your displacement weight, but that's not important...
