    KelTec P3AT belt clip question...Class 3?

    I routinely carry a P3AT IWB with the belt clip, I have been doing this for a while. Recently I was in a gun store in another town looking and while talking to the store owner, a FFL and Class 3 dealer. I mentioned the KelTec and my preferred method of carry. He informed me that modifying the P3AT with the belt clip made it qualify for a class3 stamp...and I was carrying it illegally. Has anyone here heard anything about this?

    Thanks!!

    If I am understanding you correctly he is saying it is against federal law to carry with a belt clip? I have never heard of this. As a matter of fact I don't know of any Federal law concerned with how a person carries their hand gun with or without a holster. There may be some state law concerned with this but I haven't hear of that either. You might contact KelTec and ask them.

    He may be refering to the fact Georgia required an actual Holster for CC or OC. But not sure if there is some kind of law that allows it in Ga.

    Class III??? Did it turn it into a machine gun, sawed off shotgun or short barreled rifle?

    I really did not believe this either, but I want to be sure, I guess my best bet is to contact KelTec, or even the BATF and get a straight answer.

    Chances are you will NOT get a straight answer from BATF.

    Let me ask - do you like the clip? I heard second-hand that it is in the way and rubs against the hand uncomfortably when shooting.

    Some states do require a holster.

    Does my money clip mean I have to be a class III dealer, too?

    Although the clip is not an illegal item (GA may require a holster, but it doesn't make the gun illegal), I would not carry a pistol in such a manner...I want my trigger covered.

    what a load of crap. the belt clip does not turn your gun into a machine gun.
