Re: AR 15 pistol

This is getting way into the weeds. I'm not talking about a home-built Frankengun, but a commercially built (by Ruger) AR pistol, and its legal acceptability for the LTC Proficiency.

The comment about alcohol service is because, if this thing is legally a rifle, he could not use it for the LTC, but if he did, then he could be arrested for carrying it into any business that sells alcohol (51% or not), as those locations are off-limits to long guns, and he would also likely be charged with unlawful carry, as his LTC would be invalid (Proficiency was invalid). I didn't want to open myself up to a lawsuit because I allowed him to take the class under false pretenses.

However, the concensus seems to be that this commercially built AR pistol is, indeed a pistol.

Thanks to everyone.

Re: AR 15 pistol

Would that be legal for open carry? LEOs might give a long look at someone carrying one of these.

AR 15 pistol

RE: Ruger AR 15 pistol.

I have never shot one of these. Does this qualify as a pistol for the purpose of an LTC? The owner says it shoots .300 Blackout. That sounds like an SBR to me.
If it was a rifle before it was a pistol, it may be illegal to carry in any location that sells alcohol.

Thoughts?
