Taking a "toy" gun into an area where firearms are prohibited (e.g., court house, school) is asking for trouble.

*shrug* I have to assume that a lawyer teaching a class on self-defense law might have some amount of clue. If not, oh well...

There was this hobby shop at Shopper's World. I'm talking the OLD Shopper's World with the 'spaceship' Jordan Marsh and the two level outdoor mall setup. This is the mid 1980s.

Anyway, this old hobby shop used to sell realistic firearm models and 'blowback' cap guns. While the plastic guns all had something break over the years, the all steel 1911 replica is still in great shape.

It's a non-functional replica with a solid barrel, and all the parts are just slightly different than the real thing so that you can't swap in real parts. BUT, it can rack, chamber, and eject dummy cartridges like the real thing, and it can field strip like the real thing.

Sicne the parts fit a lot less tight, it is the perfect way to teach people to take down and reassemble the 1911 without a lot of effort and wear on a real gun.

No idea where you'd get such a thing these days, but the original distributor was a company called Collector's Armory.

One problem with the Collector's Armoury is their replica 45 can't be shipped to MA.
Modern Replicas Cannot Be Shipped to Connecticut, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, California, Wisconsin, New York City, Puerto Rico or Canada
I have to admit though, their model 1911 blank gun sure looks neat!

1) Verify that there's no actual law prohibiting simple possession of a fake gun.
2) If there isn't, get a private mail box in a free state such as New Hampshire.
3) Send in order.
