      MY comment stands, used in the commission of a crime it’ll get ya extra time on your sentence for choosing Hollow points.
      UH well I apologized for my behavior, my overreaction and bad interpretation. That being said - I have no idea if we are both right or wrong on any level... but I have two lawyers I can poll with a phone call. One here in Pa on Tuesday morning. And my brother in law in NJ. But as I have to make a legal purchase with a .22 rimfire for my job next year. I am never going to own a HP. So to be honest, this isn't a high priority to me. I just have to dispatch vermin and wadcutters. I will need the new firearm for vermin - not bad people.

      Wait - I am being nice and apologizing and this is how you reply? WWWU? Baffling.

      I would like to know what source you have obtained this information and is it a state specific law. I know NJ has strict laws concerning possession of hollow points.
      Yep, NJ, dont knot about other States.

      Currently there are eleven states that have barred the sale or possession of armor-piercing bullets: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Indiana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.

      1. What is overpenetration? When your bullet goes completely through what you were shooting at and hits something you didn't intend to hit. Like your neighbor.
      2. I was told (and read) that FMJ’s are good for range shooting. Is that not correct? Are there other suggestions. FMJ are great for the range. Cheaper and cycle better in autos and don't lead foul the barrel. However, please do practice at least 10 rounds of what you intend to shoot for self-defense every time you go to the range. Get used to the recoil/muzzle flip since your range ammo won't be +P loads.
      If I decide to stay with a revolver, is a speed loader recommended? Don't bother. The gunfight will be over by your 6th round.

      1. I really like my 38. Except, it’s hard to squeeze the trigger (scary bear recommended some work but i don’t think the gun is worth it, it’s a 30 yr old Rossi 38 sp.) When I squeeze, it screws up my aim, because it takes too much force and pushes the muzzle up. So, I cock the hammer before each shot which takes a lot of time. Get rid of this POS as soon as you can afford to. If you are sold on a revolver, save the $400 for a Smith&Wesson snubbie, preferably one with a factory trigger job.
      2. I dont what the question is for #4. :)

      You can add Illinois to the armor piercing prohibition. However, armor piercing and hollow points are at totally different ends of the bullet spectrum. I don't know anywhere that hollow points are forbidden or when used carry a different sentencing spectrum.

    • If from NJ this is the info from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


      The state of New Jersey bans possession of hollow point bullets by civilians, except for ammunition possessed at one's own dwellings, premises, or other lands owned or possessed, or for, while and traveling to and from hunting with a hunting license if otherwise legal for the particular game. The law also requires all hollow point ammunition to be transported directly from the place of purchase to one's home or premises, or hunting area, or by members of a rifle or pistol club directly to a place of target practice, or directly to an authorized target range from the place of purchase or one's home or premises

      I gave up on this thread long ago. Just for reference, it is difficult to respond to something that is undecipherable....all I know is that somebody was espousing a CB .22 round for some purpose other than punching a hole in paper at 20 feet or less. My air rifle fires a .22 pellet at 3 times the speed of a CB round...CB is what a trapper would use for a point-blank coup de grace on the skull of his furbearer...it likely won't penetrate the forehead of a human skull...
