    what states dont allow hollow points

    I like to travel with the family and i carry everywhere i go. I was wondering what states aren't you allowed to carry JHPs? Does it matter if you are LEO? Do i need to buy EFMJ and are they worth a damn? I am going to Baltimore for a long weekend in June do i need the EFMJs for Maryland?

    I have never heard of a state not allowing JHP.

    NJ, for one.

    As I understand it, you can have it, but you're not allowed to put in in the gun except at the range.

    No laws I know of in Texas saying what one cannot load into a firearm. I'e carried hollowpints for 35+ years. Safe travels...

    Check out Handgunlaw.us

    That is usually the first place I look if I have law questions. They don't have all of the info, and make sure you look into the laws yourself also, but they will definitly get you started.

    In Kansas, we encourage the use of hollow points because they are more effective at getting the job done.

    You're also only allowed to transport it directly to the range by the most direct route possbile.

    I believe you would be treading on thin ice to transport it through the state as part of an interstate trip.

    Is there no "peaceable journey" laws in NJ?

    I thought there was a precedent out there that if you were in a "continuous peaceable journey" through a state, that they couldn't hold you for this kind of thing?

    New Jersey... I'd feel safer in Siria than in Newark.

    Nice job, Christie.

    NY has made HP illegal.

    Last I heard we have legislation going on in Sacramento to make them illegal also.

    IDK, its the safest round to own for home invasions and honestly any other time you have to fire your gun

    New Jersey is not unlike a lot of Northeastern states in that there are parts of the state that are rural(ish) with God fearing, gun owning residents. The other parts are armpits. Unfortunately the armpits contain more low information voters that elect these retards who make the unconstitutional laws.

    My BIL's family has a place in Cape May and we go up there from time to time and shoot plenty.
