I just love the guy holding up his weapon that was concealed.

Bond, James Bond.

I wonder if it would be illegal to order one of those jackets by international mail for delivery in Europe.

I don't think holsters are illegal in Europe? Are they? It's a good question that I never thought of.

Those are actually some pretty nice looking jackets, although they're abit pricy.

Reminded me of James Bond as well. But why the censorship (~mosaic)?

    Silencers - free for all. Saves gun enthusiasts from hearing impairment. Illegal in US though?
    Home concealment - illegal. You must store your weapons in a locked safe.
    Concealment in public places - illegal. This includes knives and other 'weaponry'.
    Guns at work - illegal. Unless you work in the law enforcement or military. If not jail, you'd at least have to face being sacked.

I figured as much, but are holsters illegal. Like if you ordered a holster from the internet, would it be confiscated?

Silencers aren't illegal in the U.S, though I believe a number of states do have them as illegal.

Not illegal, no. But practically useless since you can't carry a gun to a public place. If you've got Practical Shooting or similar as a hobby, you might find holsters useful (obligatory?) on the range, though.

I meant ordering items designed for concealment being illegal.

Silencers have criminal applications, so are often restricted in the US.



p.s. I was using "Europe" as a general term, although I wonder about EU attempts at law standardization.

By Finnish standards, items designed for concealment would not be considered illegal per se, even though concealing firearms (on a public place) is illegal. I guess it's part of the logic that it's not illegal to have an open container of alcoholic drink in your vehicle while your driving as long as you are a 'designated driver' yourself.
