I know I saw a thread in the other place about this a long time ago. Only thought about them again when I saw them in MidwayUSA's email.

I always thought these were a big no-no...Shrug

I don't see why it would be illegal. Potentially stupid, but not illegal.

Why would it be illegal?

I agree, possibly not smart. I personally wouldn't put an exposed trigger in my pocket.

Cane guns, street sweepers, bombs and machine guns are legal too.

With the right paperwork...

But this is just a firearm in a holster, it's not an AOW. It's no different than a firearm in any other holster other than the stupidity of having an exposed trigger.

After a little more digging to refresh my memory on these things suggests that It's legal because the slide is exposed and it still looks like a pistol. So what I take from this is that it's more or less a modified grip of sorts more than a holster.

Wonder if you make it an AOW if you use a pistol that's shorter than the ones it's designed to hold. Or use a paper bag or a baggy shirt pocket.

Not in PA.

It's legal. It's also a rip off of this holster:
