    I was online doing some early Christmas shopping when I came across this article talking about new holster availability for the Shot Show 2017 released SilencerCo Maxim 9. It is an integrally suppressed pistol for those who aren’t aware of what I’m rambling about. It sort of looks like a fugly modern brick of a gun but it is suppressed and from what I’ve heard quiet as a mouse fart when fired with a 147gn projectile.



    I came across CCW holsters for this pistol which is why I’m reaching out to you bunch of gents who can answer my question about the legality of carrying an NFA item concealed. I was under the impression or at least Iza thoughts I knews a thang or two bout NFA items and the inability to conceal them legally. Am I as dumb as I look or can you legally carry a suppressed firearm?

    You got to get one of those Robo Cop holsters where they put a door in the side of your thigh. That would be even cooler.

    Legal or not, if you use a concealed, silenced pistol in a self defense situation you are ABSOLUTELY going to find yourself in front of a Grand Jury and quite probably in front of a jury as well, not matter how clear-cut you may think the shoot was.

    Prosecutors would have a field day arguing about how carrying such a weapon in public shows your "assassin mind set" and that it demonstrates you were actively looking for an excuse to kill someone.

    Sir,
    As you will know there are quite a few GT members on here that have extensive collections, including amongst other things Class 3 toys.
    The general view on using a Suppressor for CCW splits into two groups.
    Those that feel the specific circumstances of the defensive shooting will determine whether it was kosher ( or not)

    AND

    Those that feel that the use of something that appears “special” or overtly tactical could imply that you were looking to have an engagement . This same group feels that the optics will give prosecutors more ammunition to sway a generally uninformed jury.

    I can see both sides here but personally I would not carry a suppressed pistol.
    I my home where, where someone is breaking in I might, but on the street I would not
    Others may give you better / different advice.

    I see TSMO has provided some great color commentary for the rationale not to.

    While I would purchase a Maxim 9 for recreational purposes, it’s size makes it an impractical choice to carry. While I do own a suppressor (for my FNX45 Tac, & MPX-K) I do not nor would I carry it concealed as it would also be an impractical choice. My question was specifically addressing the legality.

    I was under the impression that an NFA item including SBR’s, Suppressors or FA’s were prohibited from being carried concealed. I live in Florida and have a concealed weapons permit which by Florida law allows me to carry just about anything under the sun, except from my understanding or possible misunderstanding of the laws associated with NFA items a Suppressor, SBR, or FA.

    Thanks!

    For the record, I'd love to own that pistol...I just wouldn't recommend using it for concealed carry.

    I understand that. Although, God forbid you have to defend yourself at all. Imagine if you use a “fully semi-automatic” or “Assault weapon Glock with its high capacity magazine, pistol grip and night sights!

    That would be the end of long walks on the beach for at least a couple of decades.

    My understanding at least here in PA is you can carry what you want but "rifles" need to remain unloaded. Best to let a knowledgable GT member jump in here.
    I think the saying goes, just because you can does not mean you should.

    I would love to CCW this :cat:....but figure I would eventually end up in jail.

    The MPX "K" you have is a great weapon!

    Also note that some states still outlaw suppressors.

    Also, the trigger on that sucks.

    Also, due to the configuration of the can, it’s not all that quiet.

    You’re better off wearing electronic earmuffs everywhere. Would look marginally less ridiculous than that space gun.

    If it were the size, shape, and weight of a regular pistol, hell yeah.

    But it's none of those things, so no.

    I prefer to carry a potato in my pocket. Works well for silencer
