any legal technicalities concerning handloads?
Folks, I'm pretty new to this forum and though I have had my CCW for 15 years I seldom see any need to carry on my person. Things are changing in my area so I am preparing for that eventuality. For a long time I was a moderator on a popular gun forum but busyness had kept me away for some time. I returned there recently and found a rather heated thread on whether or not there were any legal implications concerning handloaded ammunition in one's carry gun. Most of the LEOs and CCW instructor-types seemed to say avoid doing so just because its not necessary. The diehard handloaders, of course, objected to this. It got me to thinking: in my gun safe I have five rounds of hot handloads for my SP101 .357 and a half-used box of Black Talons. Are there legal implications, God Forbid, should I have to defend myself with deadly force and happen to use either the handloads or the Talons? If this has already been discussed ad infinitum then I apologize and will look for a link in the archives.
