    Now I do not have one, but I have been wondering if it is legal to do so. Also, can you carry a rifle around like Nick Cage carried his bow around in the movie "The Weatherman"?

    I personally wouldn't carry a machine gun for several reasons. The least of which is I would probably become a bit prideful about one under my suit. "Yea, thats right. Thats a machine gun, baby." :evil:

    Anybody know? My roommates and I are curious.

    Yes, unless your state has mag cap limits, you cant open carry anything over 20 rounds in VA, or if it has a stock or foregrip.

    Unless your state laws prohibit it you can carry it. I will however note that prostitutors would probably go after you and let a stupid jury convict you for 'some guns'. YMMV

    I can carry anything I legally own, conceiled in Indiana with a license.

    Kentucky CCDW Permit

    vis-à-vis,
    here in Kentucky we don't have a CCW permit we have a CCDW permit as in Concealed Carry Deadly Weapon. I've had my permit a few years and I've got the book the way I understand it. If you have a valid permit and you can conceal it you are good to go be it pump grip shot gun, AOW, UZI, MP5, pistol grip AR (something I may do for grins in a few years). And the part I like is that ASP batons, saps & auto knives are fine but I can't carry those in other states.
    You live in the land of Knob Creek and we firmly believe that all of the ATF's fine products should be fully enjoyed. Lets keep it that way:evil:

    Not in Michigan, you may only carry a concealed pistol with the permit here, at least as far as I understand it. We do have some... unique... ideas as to what counts as a pistol though.

    Thain. What about this? I have an UZI. Thr barrel is 18.5". Satisfies the feds. OAL is under 24" so Michigan classifies it as a handgun and had to be inspected (*cough*cough). I have the green card. I do believe that I can carry it in a vehicle with the mags loaded.

    Well mac-10s are pistols, at least in semi closed bolt configuration. So as long as your state has no AWB, and you can legally conceal carry, then you're good to go as long as it is a "pistol" and has no stock. You could even CCW a AR pistol.

    In Texas you can carry an Uzi concealed with no CHL. Of course
    it must be a real Uzi, the kind with a tax stamp. Our CHL's
    are specifically for handguns. Anything else is mostly free
    game.

    AZ permit is not weapon specific. If it's legal, you can carry it concealed...waiting to see someone to try to conceal a Solothurn.
    I knew a guy who carried a FA MAC in an SMZ rig, 10 round in it, two 30s opposite side. As long as anything NFA is on the National Registry, and your CCW permit is valid, AZ says "go for it."

    TennTucker, like I said, you can only carry a concealed pistol... We just have a broad definition of pistol.

    An UZI or a Mac-10 should be hunky-dory, but my Remington 870 isn't... not that I want to stick a Wingmaster in a pair Thunderwear.
    :D

    You can do it in Minnesota! You could even carry it open if you want. You could have a Mac 10 on your right hip and a TC Encore on your left out in the open if you wanted.

    Maybe you should consider carrying a Kel-Tec PLR-16!!!

    I would think the problem would be in concealing it not in whether or not you're allowed to carry it. It would be pretty hard to keep a PLR16 or MAC10 from printing.

    jerkface11,
    depends on the weather you are dressing for; mid summer in the south not so much it gets a little easier as you aproach 0' F. I was raised in Florida so I don't like to layer I prefer 1 heavy layer and with the coat I wear below 20'F a PLR-16 would be feasable and a CAR-15 or an supressed SBR:what: wouldn't be unthinkable. Impractical? Yes. Impossible? Hardly. IMHO you'd be limited to a shoulder sling.
    All fun and games aside I'd just stick with my Kimber or Hi-Power or maybe move to a Glock 20. If I though I needed that much firepower best not to be there in the first place or bring friends with long guns:D

    Coat, rain coat, the infamous trench coat, backpack, breifcase, innocent "sports bag", or even a shopping bag, done right. Neccesity is the mother of invention.

    My concern would not be in wether or not I could legally carry it but what a court would do to me if I ever used it.

    Mr Defendant would you tell the court why you were carrying a weapon of mass destruction under your jacket?

    You would be Ramboised so fast your butt would pucker.

    Later

    Same goes for hollow points. People don't seem to care about that these days though. Hollow points are oh so superior says the ammo manufacturers and gun rags. Watch what happens when you shoot somebody with them; you'll be branded a cold blooded murderer with extreme bullets.

    Has there ever been an instance of someone using a full auto for self defense while carrying concealed?

    There have been one or two cases that I'd heard about where a FA weapon was used in self defense, but the weapons were not being carried concealed.

    As best I can tell from reading this board and others, using a FA weapon for self defense is considered a silly thing to do for a number of reasons (legal and tactical).

    HK is offering a nice way to conceal. A briefcase. Look at
    http://www.hkpro.com/mp5k.htm
    and don't miss the trigger at the handle of the briefcase. You can not only carry concealed, you can also shoot concealed :)
