Q: Our business has a firearms pro shop and an indoor range. With the increased popularity of AR style pistols many of our customers have purchased the guns with the ?Hand Brace? installed from the factory or they have installed an aftermarket ?Hand Brace to theses pistols. The ATF rulings that we understand say that this type of firearm is legal, with the ?Hand Brace?, but the gun is a pistol and need to be shot with one hand and at no time can it ever be ?Shouldered? as if it were a rifle, that would then make it a ?SBR? Short Barrel Rifle and would then need to have Form 4. If we have a customer with this type firearm, which is shooting on our range, and they are shooting this firearm from the ?Shoulder? not with a single hand, are we obligated to tell that customer that they can only shoot the gun in the manner it was intended? Or is this a matter for law enforcement or do private property rights have anything to do with this?
