I have a friend that has a broomhandle. He was reading the ATF page and now has a question.
It is illegal to have a smooth bore pistol, right? Well, the barrel of this broomhandle has been shot out, no lands or grooves to be had/seen. It looks as if it never had them in fact.
Is this pistol legal or illegal? He didn't get it to shoot it, just to look at it (yes, he is "one of those" :rolleyes: , collector, not a shooter). He doesn't want to get it rebarreled (or a sleeve put in) because that would take away it's historical value and he sure in the heck doesn't want to have to turn it in.
Since it's a C&R type gun, is it exempt from the rules?
