    Yeah, something in there needs a stamp.

    If the TEC was a semi auto, then yes, it becomes an AOW while it's INSIDE the briefcase. The case itself is not registered. I saw a post some time back where supposedly there was a registered briefcase but I saw nothing more than hearsay.
    I suppose a legal case (pardon the pun) could be made that possession of the case AND a TEC that fit it might be illegal.
    Same holds true for the North American Arms and the wallet holsters that ATF reclassified a few years back.

    Now, if that TEC were a registered FA, like mine, there'd be zero issues as the MG stamp trumps everything.
    I'd LOVE a case for my TEC...but I think the logistics might be a lot tougher than the MAC guns.

    Fold a piece of leather around a small gun and cut a hole in it so the trigger is exposed. ATF sez you owe them money or jail time if you fail to file paper.




    Woman has purse with gun inside. Woman walks to car late at night after work with hand inside purse holding gun ready to fire...

    I hear it is common for police in winter time to have small backup gun in coat pocket. They can have hand in pocket holding gun during high risk encounters without appearing to have a drawn gun and can fire through pocket. Cop is very short and coat is only 24 inches long....

    Nick Fury's Grandpa carried a loaded .22 magnum in his paper lunch bag along with a bunch of crumpled ones. Hand fits easily inside bag...

    Slim, the issue, or at least ATF has the issue, is with the ability to fire the weapon easily and disguised. Inside a purse or a pocket isn't enough. If the piece of leather looks like a scrap of leather and you have to finagle it to fire, probably not an issue. But if the average person would swear it was a wallet and all you have to do to easily fire the gun is grab it...
    Stupid rulings, beginning with the insane and convoluted AOW definition.

    Plus, the original side hole can be made with the first firing of the case. LOL

    LOL. Back in the day, my favorite journeyman used to carry a grocery bag around with his Grizzly .45mag 1911 in it. Maybe to protect the stack of 20s and uncashed paychecks in his wallet.
