    Well, the G18 and 93R are illegal carry as the SDA states derringer, revolver or semi Automatic in Section 2.

    As far as the Suppressor, I will agree there is no definition excluding it. However, since BATFE considers a suppressor, in and of itself, a firearm, AND since the OK Statutes do not define suppressors, law interpretation in a court case will default to BATFE definitions.

    Huge grey area, and I doubt anyone will know the correct answer until its tested in court.

    I agree that the ATF classifies as suppressor as a firearm. But, wouldn't it then be illegal to carry even in the absence of a firearm? Attached to a gun, in the presence of a legally carried gun but not attached or alone, the suppressor is still a separate firearm.

    Mea culpa... I sucked at rereading the statutes before I posted and stand corrected the SDA does indeed say semi automatic.

    As long as the suppressor is not loaded, you can carry it anywhere. I believe that was the law before the SDA.....:greetings

    Just to muddy the waters even further, what if you were carrying an integrally suppressed pistol? Granted I'm not aware of any other than Ruger .22lr, but the SDA does not preclude .22lr pistols.
