    In the spirit of sharing, I have compiled decades of gun loony experience on another board. You are more than invited to take a read. It will take days to go through it. Enjoy!

    okay so after digging thru many of those campfire posts I found one that was of major concern for the majority of us here that carry a defensive handgun. one post (again I do not know if this is fact) stated it was illegal to carry hollow point expanding type bullets in a .45 caliber. Also I understood it to read that any expanding type bullet was illegal to carry because it was considered excessive force. can anyone here find the actual carry laws regarding ammunition.

    Not sure on the laws, but I've voluntarily surrendered my weapon to numerous Sheriff's and one Hillsboro officer. Never have any of them said anything about the JHP's after unloading it themselves.

    Out of a 1911.

    So it's nothing to worry about, I assume.

    There aren't any laws against SD HP's at least in the US. Lethal force is lethal force. Its a liberal lawyer's old wives tale. It might have been proposed when the first high speed JHP's came out in the SuperVel's when all the other anti-gun crap started in the late '60's and early 70's. When the cops started carrying HP's, the "crisis" was over. John Ross had an article on the subject several years ago but its not in his current archives.

    I'm not a lawyer but you can pose the question here and get a gun friendly lawyer's perspective on it.

    ETA: SuperVel and more.

    Mind if I ask why you had to voluntarily surrender your firearm?

    Correct in our Northwest, but not correct for the entire United States. From New Jersey state statutes:

    In your house, dwelling, at the range and from / to. On the street loaded for SD is a no-no. Contrary to some beliefs, New Jersey is in the United States. :D
