What's he likely to be charged with?

Felony?

I'm sure it was loaded. Maybe not one in the pipe, but a full mag.

Several years ago, I was told that it was a misdemeanor if it was just a case of being caught carrying without a permit.  I think sometime in the last few years it was upgraded to a more serious offense, but still not a felony.

That's based on fuzzy memory, and I'm not a lawyer, so take it for what it's worth.

Unless he's a convicted felon and they want to break it off in him.
