    Saturday, I attended the 8hr class for my CCW and passed! I cant wait for DPS to send me my card now.

    This has got me thinking... Winter is upon us; thick, heavy and long clothing....You could conceal a cruiser fairly easily.

    Im not saying I am, but if I can find the best rig to get that puppy to hang under my armpit, it would be an interesting day.

    Any thoughts or ideas of how to carry something like this?

    You can get the barrel cut down for a $5.00 tax stamp as long as you don't put a stock on it!

    I think you are wrong about this. In order for the shotgun to qualify as an AOW, it has to be maufactured that way from the factory or other Title 2 manufacturer. It is not as easy as buying a Cruiser and having the barrel cut and never putting a stock on it.

    As always, if I'm wrong please correct me!!!

    I legally concealed carried shotguns and carbines long before Texas ever issued CHL's.

    The $5 tax would be applicable if the shotgun was a factory pistol grip gun, and then I was sent to a Title II manufacturer and they did the work, however the wait is basically the same so spend the $195 extra and get the option to put a stock on it if you wanted.

    This is the way I have read it for a while and seems to be accepted by most.

    I was unaware that a person could legally CC a shotgun. Really?

    That's my point. A Title 2 guy is going to charge you out the yeng-yang to cut the barrel to obtain a $5 stamp (if it would apply to a Cruizer to begin with????). Or you can pay about the same amount ($200), do the cutting yourself, and maintain all options.

    The $5 tax stamp has nothing to do with who cuts the barrel, etc. It is for creating a Any Other Weapon (AOW), which is a short barreled pistol with a forward pistol grip (like a HK MP5) or a shotgun with a short barrel and no stock. If you want to create a Short Barrel Shotgun (SBS), which is defined as a shotgun with a stock and a barrel length less than 18 inches, then the tax stamp costs $200.

    Don't try to figure out the gun laws in this country. The more you learn, the more you learn they were written for political reasons and don't make much since at all...

    In Ohio it has to be a gun that was manufactured to be shot with one hand.

    The tax to create an AOW is still $200. Or it has to be built by a manufacturer with a SOT (IIRC about $3,000 per year).

    The tax to transfer one that is already built is $5.

    I concur with this, but can I assume that a AOW that a SOT builds has to come from somewhere, so can you send a pistol grip gun you purchased as a pistol grip be sent to the SOT and they build it and then transfer it? Or do the SOT's have to get virgin receivers from the original manufacturer?

    The way I understand it, since the cruiser is sold from the manufacturer with a pistol grip on it, it can be converted for 5 bucks since it was originally made without a stock. Any shotgun originally made and sold with a shoulder stock on it, has to have the 200 buck tax stamp if it was converted to a SBS.

    Of course, I could be wrong, usually am but that is how I understand it.
