All,

I would just like some advice on how to explain my OLL/Bulletbutton AR-15 if/when approached by a LEO while at a range or while transporting to and from the range.
Would quoting penal code 12276.1 be enough?
Should i also send a letter to the DOJ requesting a confirmation of the legality of my OLL reciever to keep on file?


I currently have a printed copy of this OLL reference guide which i bring with me to the range in case i ever need to explain the legality of my rifle. (includes copy of the AW flowchart)

Any advice given would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

a copy of the flowchart is nice and to the point. Or maybe one of the LE internal memos that hoffmang has. I don't recall if the memos are in the reference guide that you have printed.

I keep the flowchart in my range bag. Just remember to think before you speak and don't give up anymore info than you have to.

Just an FYI, the flow chart IS part of the above referenced OLL guide..

I figured it was, but I don't see a 200 page guide a quick way to educate an LEO.

I actually have quick reference tabs to specific locations in the guide for :

Know the definitions of an assault weapon and detachable mag and be able to explain them without using your flow chart and use your flow chart and text of the law to backup your points.
