Sorry about that. I don't want my gun wrapped in anything when I fire it, anyway, myself. I want it firmly in my hand.
Uncle George holster is not set up for a weapon to be fired while it's in the holster therefore is not covered by the law you state. It must be drawn before firing.
Wallet holsters would have a trigger hole to be classified NFA category.
certain wallet holsters fall into the any other weapon category
and are subject to the provisions of the NFA.
These wallet holsters are generally rectangular in
shape, are designed to disguise the appearance of
the handgun, and are designed to allow the weapon
to be fired while it is contained within the wallet.
