North American Arms Belt Buckle Legality

I have a North American Arms Belt Buckle for the 22 mag. I have been carying it for about 6 months in that configuration but recently I was told by a local gunshop owner that legislation was passed during the Clinton years that prohibite the carry of such guns. I have tried finding other sources but have been unable to do so. Can anyone give me some direction on this? I have contacted the stat police and they have basically said if there is any question dont wich is just the response I didn't want to hear.....I am a concealed permit holder and VA is an open carry state.

Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.

The "belt buckle holsters" have not run afoul of this "disguised gun" problem - which was NOT Clinton-era legislation but rather a more stringent interpretation of the NFA1934 rules that started under the Clintons when the ATF went mostly bonkers.

The buckle holsters simply hold a small gun. If somebody doesn't know guns come that small, that's on them. By now more or less all cops do know.
