No round under the hammer? Check.
No round in position where a single pull of the trigger will fire a round? Check.
Are to actions required to fire? Yes.

Seems fine.


Yeah... but I've heard officers who memorized "nothing under the hammer, nothing in the next chamber... so downloaded by two".
Ah well, get your CFP and don't worry. Besides, it would be kinda hard to open carry that little gun. :D

NAA Belt Buckle

Whether it met the requirements of not being "covered, hidden, or secreted in a manner that the public would not be aware of its presence" might be an issue since many would not recognize it as a weapon in the setting of a belt buckle and thus "be aware of its presence".

Good call... I've never seen anyone carrying a single-action revolver except for cowboy action shooting and the old western movies, I guess that's why I left it out


I carried a Single Action for years openly and "Utah Unloaded". (Five rounds and the hammer down on the empty hole.)
This is the only safe way to carry a single action that doesn't have a transfer bar. The mini NAA is an exception.
Carry on!

But the unloaded law only applies to open carry that dont have a carry permit, correct?

So....would you really open carry that thing??

That would be a little holster, and think of the care you would have to take to not conceal. :raisedbrow:
