    Concerning Fingerprint Oil & Primers

    Your fingerprints would have to be oily enough for excess fingerprint oil to actually migrate from the exterior of the cartridge case to the interior.
    Nope...not possible.

    Paranoia

    There have been quite a few posts attributing possibly bad or illegal motives for not wanting ones fingerprints on ammunition.
    Call me paranoid, but the truth is (I live in Illinois) I can not have my weapon under my direct control 100 percent of the time and, with the best security that I can provide, it might still be possible for one or more of my weapons to be stolen and used by someone else.
    In that scenario, I'd really hate to have my fingerprints turn up on murder evidence.
    I have CCW permits allowing me to carry in 31 states and my fingerprints ARE on record.
    Borrowing from someone else -
    The question is not "Am I paranoid?" but, rather, "Am I paranoid enough?"
    In all matters, I'd much rather err on the side of caution and discretion and be thought a fool than to be proven to be so in court.

    I suspect that IL laws mean that your pistol is registered to you (edit: OK, only in Chicago). If it's stolen, used in a crime, found by the police, it would be traced to you with or without fingerprints. It would be expected to have your fingerprints on or in it; no lawyer would try to make anything out of the fact that your fingerprints were on your pistol. But one might ask why your fingerprints were not on your pistol. (How's that for excess paranoia? )

    Thoughts that make you go hmmmmmm

    Whether right or wrong, I would equate wearing gloves w/ illegal activities in THIS type of situation.
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

    The only reason I could see for wearing gloves while loading:
    --its cold out
    --you don't have a speed loader and your thumb is starting to hurt


    Wearing gloves to keep prints off the ammo is pretty sketchy.

    I load my magazines while wearing gloves... at the outdoor range during the winter.

    Any other time it is absurd. If he is worried about finger prints then he is thinking he will be using it for criminal activity at some point.

    I have lifted prints at crime scenes. Most of the real work then after getting a good print (readable with points, not just smears on small surface areas), was eliminating all the legitimate prints of persons at the scene. The best I could hope for was a window that had been washed the night before, or a cash box wiped down just before the crime. Well that NEVER happened. Now with the automated fingerprint identification system its faster but who wants to develope and lift/photo , submit and preserve twenty legit prints and the maybe find one partial left by the perp.?
    I wipe my guns and ammo down all the time to eliminate my prints.Not just for the ID issue but general cleaning, Rubber gloves are no good for loading as the tips of the fingers tear and lodge in the mag lips. Cotton gloves used in the lab for sample handling work best for me.I load without gloves also and on good range days dont give it a thought just from the volume. But I try to go back to the glove thing as a habit .
    Surpising how often I change out gloves as they show all sorts of dirt. Try giving your weapons a white glove treatment for a few months and a few of you might change some attitude.
    I want my guns and ammo not in my possesion to have bad guy prints all
    over them if found at a crime scene.Little things can make a difference in fingerprint identification. When in control of my guns and ammo I like the white glove clean test and I can point out which shells/casings are likely mine as I will be the one on the 911 line calling for assistance.
    I am an American. I vote. I will serve on a jury when called. Its a MEMBERS ONLY thing.
