    With all the crazies downtown, if I had to go downtown, there is no way in hell I would go unarmed. If that makes me a target for police and lawsuit so be it...

    I would say no... If it were just a pistol or even that pistol but altered, I'd say go for it, but for that particular one...

    I'm fairly certain that the Angled fore-grip being installed on your pistol would make for having a bad day. The AR-Pistols slide by in their "one handed" state, but with the Angled fore-grip, it stops being "one handed".

    You are aware that 'angled' and 'vertical' are not synonyms, right?

    It's not the angle of the fore-grip that they're focusing on, it's the amount of hands that the firearm is meant to be held by with the attachments.
    "By positioning the shooter's hand high on the centerline of the bore, unlike conventional vertical fore-grips, the AFG helps mitigate recoil and control the weapon to facilitate faster, more accurate follow-up shots."
    The angled fore-grip serves the same purpose as the vertical, it is just a more ergonomic version. If we want to play semantics, by all means, test this theory. I just wouldn't put my money or ass on the line to try to argue the difference between "vertical" and "angled" when they are just going on their own interpretation of what makes for a pistol compared to a SBR or AOW.

    In that case, I say go for the Seattle trip. As long as the feds don't care, Seattle can eat... well, they can eat something very bad. Lol.

    Glad you got a hold of them first and even found out that the AFG is okay to put on the pistol. That will actually probably help out a lot of people who are wondering the same thing and read that as I did. =]
