    Packing a BB gun??

    Have a friend who is waiting for his permit to arrive in the mail and today he confessed to me that he has been packing a BB gun, concealed, to get an idea of how it is going to feel when he can pack a "real" gun..he asked me what I thought of it and of course I thought how silly, but then when you think about it, I can see where the training of oneself in seeing how comfortable or uncomfortable it can be to go concealed. He would NEVER pretend to pull a BB gun but he wonders, what if a LEO confronted him and he has no permit yet? I guess a BB gun "could" be a deadly weapon, but if it is not functional, can it be? Would love to hear what Sixto has to say abt this, or any other LEO..

    Well, I have no idea how AR laws are written, but most states it doesnt matter if its a real firearm or not. As long as its presented as real, its real. I.E; If I rob a bank with a BB gun, its still armed robbery. Same would apply to a ccw charge.

    Carrying a BB gun around is not a good idea anyway you slice it, but I could see maybe walking around the house with it to get an idea.

    I'm with Sixto NOt a good Idea to pack a BB gun.

    However "SIXTO" if hes going to carry it aroun the house why not just use the real gun.

    Could some LEO and/or prosecuter construe the carry of said bb gun as felony ccw based on the definition of firearm? In ordinance on "the discharge of a firearm in city limits," a firearm in defined roughly as anything that throws a projectile or missile, and specifically includes airguns, spring powered guns, bows and arrows, etc.

    Depending on state laws , he could get into lots of trouble. Sounds like a bad idea.

    Sure they can. I've seen it done. I dont know about the felony part, that depends on the state.

    If he's concealing it, likely the state's concealed weapons laws come into full play. Know the laws that apply. Also be aware that charges of carrying a weapon concealed without that license can well mean that license is going bye-bye for a long time. Caution.

    If caught, he will be charged with carrying a concealed weapon, which by the way is a felony. Felons cannot get CCW permits.

    I question whether he has the maturity to carry a real concealed weapon. Looks like an accident waiting to happen.

    To CCW (a BB gun) out in public is a very bad idea...
    To do so inside the home doesn't make much sense either...

    Wait until you purchase the 'real Mc Coy' and add a good holster made for the gun...then if the permit has not yet arrived...carry that combo around the house...now THAT makes sense to me...
