Default Re: Disguising a weapon as a toy

The Llama PRESSIN is close to what the OP is looking for, but it's not disguised to look like a toy. It won't pass close inspection or a metal detector, but it doesn't look like a weapon in it's case and can be fired while remaining disguised.

A simple practice sparing match doesn't have to have witnesses...
But yeah, there are many more efficient ways to go about it.

Just like putting a Thompson in a violin case...

AFAICT, the Thompson can't actually be fired from inside the case.

There are a couple of smgs that can be fired from inside a briefcase-shaped case, though.

In which case why bother with the disguised weapon.

Because you may have to get to the sparing site with it without raising any questions?
I know, stretching here, it's a very, very specific case for a possible PC who is prone to over-elaborate schemes.
Stick to the violin case I think. @:-)
Fun fact: I once got a chance to speak with Myriam Bedard, former bi-athlete, when she was just retired from the sport and before all the strange stuff happened to her. She told me she used to carry her rifle on the bus in a cello case to get to practice.
