    This guy had the old style triangle CAR handguards and a single action black powder pistol.

    I guess this makes the 1860 Army .44 Caliber black powder Revolvers and similar pistols assault weapons now...

    I guess I need the rest of the story, because that's an AR upper, not a weapon, unless of course he used it as a club.

    The revolver is NOT classed a FireArm, Federally, and would be only good for six shoots, IF it was indeed, Loaded... I wonder if the Police actually had the smarts to unload it, if it was loaded, without firing it? Somehow I have my doubts.... ReLoading the pistol is just out of the question... Just like changing out the AR upper should the one on the CAR fail or jam. Takes way to long to do, to be practicle, in a Shootout.... .....
