From Section 6102 of the Uniform Firearms Act we have the definition of “Firearm.” -- Any pistol or revolver with a barrel length less than 15 inches, any shotgun with a barrel length less than 18 inches or any rifle with a barrel length less than 16 inches, or any pistol, revolver, rifle or shotgun with an overall length of less than 26 inches. The barrel length of a firearm shall be determined by measuring from the muzzle of the barrel to the face of the closed action, bolt or cylinder, whichever is applicable.
So, it's any pistol, revolver orshort-barreled rifle/shotgun. Got one of them? You'll need an LTCF to carry it openly in the City of Brotherly Love. Can you expect to get stopped, hassled, or worse? You betcha! Would their reaction be legal? Hey, these are the same people that firebombed women and children, and got away with it - "legal" has nothing to do with it.
Ok, but I can see that, but what about [size=§908.]
where it says.
"[size="Firearm." Any weapon which is designed to or may readily be converted to expel any projectile by the action of an explosive, or the frame or receiver of any such weapon."
Does that only apply to that sub section?
