    I'm just curious if anyone has ever conceal carried (not open carried, but actually concealed) something besides a derringer/revolver/semi-auto pistol. By semi-auto pistol, I am specifically refering to one where the magazine goes in the pistol grip.

    If so, what was it, how did you carry it, and how hard was it to conceal? (This includes carrying a long gun in something that made it look like you didn't have a long gun, for the express purpose of self defense).

    All I can say is that has an incredible magazine capacity...

    And I should have realized that someone would go there.

    If you carry a long gun in say,a violin case,or,a M11 in a briefcase and it can be fired without taking it from the case,you now have an AOW which is a CLIII/NFA weapon.On the upside,send in your Form 1 (permission to manufacture) along with $200 and build what you want.Could be a cool little project.

    I would suspect that permit to carry laws are for handgun only. Or at least in my state the law reads "permit to carry a handgun".

    Sub guns ,and class 3 type firearms that are small enough to conceal would therefor remain illegal to carry in a concealed fashion.

    If your talking other items like knives ,or a blackjack, or perhaps pepper spray, then I would think someone carries these where allowed.

    In Michigan, a rifle under 30 inches overall length is defined as a pistol. My folding stock Mini-14 is a pistol in MI and with my concealed pistol license I have concealed it under a coat just to try it. (Obviously the magazine does not go in the pistol grip.) It is not comfortable and I have no reason at this time to do so on a normal basis.

    Same here, a SOG 4" folder that's max length for a folder here in Missouri. But that will change on July 21, 2012 when I have my CCW class at Bass Pro Shops.

    I conceal my pocket knife essentially "all the time" and you don't need a permit. :D

    Kabar Marine Hunter. Recently had a kid ask me if it was real. When i said yes, he asked why i wore it. "Cuz my broadsword is illegal." His dad laughed so hard he dropped a gallon of milk.

    I once carried a Serbu Super Shorty in a shoulder rig for about two weeks when I was working for a friend's dad. He thought my Glock was too puny for the job he had hired me for.

    I used to carry a collapsible baton but it disappeared somehow.

    Not sure if this counts but I carried a Mossberg 500 pistol gripped gun on my back in a sleeve under my jacket while riding my dual sport bike into the back country camping. Since I did stop at a store and was walking around in public with it I gues I can answer your question with a yes.....

    It is possible to conceal all manner of weapons. Nunchucku slung over your jacket armpit , throwing knives in a wrist wrap, knives almost anywhere. mace in cell phone holster. Book bindings, rolled up magazines. Boots, of course, are a weapon in themselves.

    Perhaps my favorite weapon to conceal is the big fat round house kick coming out of nowhere the BG will never expect. An old friend of mine got his jaw broken by an aggressive idiot who snuck up on him with a full pop can.

    The pure concept of situational awareness includes improvisational defense.

    In some states even MGs and suppressed weapons are legal to conceal. As I recall, if you can legally own it and can conceal it, you can carry it in AZ (except for nunchucks).

    But I've never conceal carried anything but a handgun and a knife.

    Other than the fact that most wasabi ninjas would hurt themselves, why would nunchucks be illegal?
    Seriously though I carry a knife usually a folding knife with a locking blade and a pocket clip all the time.
    When I drove cab I always had a leather sack full of change that could be pressed into service as a sap if I needed it.
    Other than that no I don't or haven't carry anything.

    Here in KY it's a concealed WEAPONS permit, not a gun permit. You could legally carry an Uzi if you had the proper tax stamp. Or a sword, or throwing stars...

    Just for S&G I once carried an M4 carbine under a raincoat. I was planning on going to the grocery store, but decided against it as soon as I sat down in the car. So technically I have to answer your questions with a NO because I never left the driveway.

    I used to carry a collapsible baton when I worked at a previous job where I was afraid I might need it. This was before we had a CCW permit system here and I didn't realize that penalty-wise it wasn't any worse to illegally conceal a gun.

    Short answer, yes. Long answer, but surely not every day!

    Oh yeah, Benchmade Resistor and Leatherman every day. But this is AZ, as mentioned before, we can carry ALMOST anything we want, with the lonely exception of nunchucks. If I have a lawful NFA firearm I can carry it concealed or openly too, without a permit.

    One of the CT gov websites states specifically that the law does not address the carry of long guns, openly or concealed, so it's not illegal, per se.

    Not in Georgia. Our newly refined and awesomized CCW laws allow for the concealed carry of a rifle as well as a handgun. I have not CC'd a long gun though.

    I conceal my 28" barrel 870 in my front pocket everywhere I go. I felt undergunned with my S&W 500, so I figured "Go big or go home".

    Yes but ---

    As was pointed out this is thr,and they have already destroyed enough of my posts.

    In fact I doubt this one will be allowed :banghead:.

    But yes to your answer,it was actually legal as I was LEO.

    And it was for personal safety.

    I tell ya I feel neked without at least one knife on me or within arms reach at all times.:D I really do have at least a folder with 3.5 inch blade stashed on me all them time. It has come in handy several times in the past no question. One of the reasons that I do not fly anymore.

    Here in Alaska,no CPL/CCW,etc is needed.You can carry open or concealed anywhere firearms are allowed,but you must tell any LEO a firearm is in your possession or it is an automatic felony.I've heard they get a bit uptight in "Los Anchorage",but everywhere else is pretty laid back.

    That's the way it used to be in Colorado, but on my last renewal, the permit card was changed to read "handguns."

    I knew a guy years ago who owned a gun shop and routinely carried thousands in cash on his person. He also carried a MAC in an SMZ rig, 10 round mag, twin 32 round mags opposite side, Colt 1911 strong side, Seecamp .32 in the front pocket, and a 22 pen gun in the shirt pocket. I thought the pen gun was overkill.
