Maybe like a ring with a protruding tool piece that faces inward on your thumb.
No question on that, it's GTG.

The gray area is when the tool is attached in any way to the gun. Some believe it's okay, others believe that it is not okay, to have the tool hanging by a lanyard from the gun.

In this case, I would personally err on the side of safety and make sure the tool is attached to me, rather than the gun.

The area is not very gray. If your rifle, as configured when seized, can have a magazine detached by the governments firearms expert on the stand without a piece of the rifle being removed from the rifle, it has a detachable magazine.

An inert bullet on a line attached to the stock that allows one to actuate a bullet button is a part of the rifle that allows the rifle to have a magazine detached without the use of a tool. A tool actually attached to your rifle is no longer a tool but is part of the rifle.

Hypothetical situation: A friend of mine bought one of the magnets made by solar tactical, but only bought it for use outside of CA when they shoot in the Reno area of NV and will never use it in CA. Could there be an issues with constructive possession here?

Make something idiot proof and before you know it you've got better IDIOTS.

Buy a bullet button, build a California legal OLL rifle, buy some POS to circumvent the bullet button, loose the rifle and go to jail.

Remember guys, we're talking about someone willing to pay $25 for a refrigerator magnet.
