    Does anyone know: Is taking the following action LEGAL, ILLEGAL, or UNSURE/UNKNOWN/GRAY AREA, under federal law?


    Taking a AR15 *HANDGUN* which of course has the protruding buffer tube; Holding handgun with two hands, one on the P-grip, and one on the front grip; Pulling the handgun toward you until the buffer tube is placed on and comes to rest on your inner shoulder area; Using this placement and friction to help steady the handgun; Placing your cheek on the buffer tube; And then firing, just as you would a regular rifle or SBR.

    ???

    I suspect that it's either perfectly legal or a gray area (no specific test case law on it yet), but thought someone might know for sure which of the three.

    The law deals with design, not use.

    Why don't you call the BATFE and ask them?
