    Hey guys, I have My ccw. Is there any issue with carrying a loaded pistol in my backpack, with a silencer unattached and in a seperate compartment?

    Do you have a source for this statement?

    I've never heard that you couldn't, only that if you did have to use your CCW in a self defense situation you might get the 4th or even 5th degree in questioning afterwards. Not sure if hearing protection is a good enough explanation.

    The only think I could think of would be the additional length. Doesn't the SDA specify under 16" total length or something like that?

    I don't believe a removable device would be considered part of the length either. Just like a 14.5" AR has to have a perm attached device to meet the 16" requirement.

    Even if they did consider it part of the length, many 9mm suppressors would not take a standard service pistol over the 16" mark. There are also several micro 9mm cans available on the market that definitely wouldn't take you over the 16" mark attached on a lot of pistols.

    I agree with what you quoted, however the way I read it, the SDA grants you a license to carry a handgun. It does not grant you a license to carry a SBR, SBS, AOW, MG, DD or Suppressor. All of those are legally defined as firearms themselves. A suppressor is not considered simply an "attachment", it is considered a firearm under federal law and I believe Oklahoma follows all of the federal definitions. Again, this is just my opinion and I may very well be wrong.

    It won't be attached. I just wan't to make sure there wasn't something specifically stating that they can't be carried together. I hadn't seen it But I knew there were people here that had studied the text a lot more than myself. I will continue to carry it with me when I have my backpack with me.

    thanks gang.

    Just scanning through Title 21 it is not dissallowed under unlawfull carry. Silencer is not specifically mentioned, but it also doesn't generalize as firearm.
