Danish version of a handgun...

Description: Being a citizen of Denmark, where handgun hunting are strictly forbidden, you need to be creative.
So I've made my own, shortening a New England, 222 Rem, single shot rifle to 12 inch, and tried to make a pistol grip of the stock. All this being perfectly legal.
What do you guys think, will this qualify as a handgun in the US, or is it just a short rifle ?

I sure can't wait till the roebuck season starts in 10 days, and see how it performs.

Nothing like improvising! But, here in the United States of Regulations, it's illegal - unless obtaining proper paper work and paying proper taxes (bunch of red tape).

It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.

If chambered in anything with a bit more authority I think that grip could result in a certain amount of pain, haha. Looks good. I did something similar with a single shot 12 gauge once upon a time. Good luck on your hunt!

Rod, too.

Short cuts often lead to long recoveries.

Looks good! If you could find a replacement stock with a thumb hole grip and cut it down, it might make it a bit more comfortable.

Here in the U.S. though, that would be considered a short barreled rifle, which are more heavily regulated. Still, I'd certainly consider it a handgun for hunting purposes.
