    Federal Policy

    I contacted federal ammuntion and asked them if they had discountinued the 124 +p 9mm EFMJ. On there website it said 105 EFMJ, he said "O no we didn't thats for LE only. We will not sell +P ammuntion to the General public" I paused and said then how am I getting it. His response was that I am probably getting it through an LE distributor and that they are selling it to the GP.

    I guess this raises a question in my head. Why is this a Federal policy?

    Theres no law against it why should you hurt yourself and the industry?

    The company, "Federal," and some other ammo companies allegedly sell certain ammo only to LE for liability reasons, such as certain +P and/or +P+ ammo...mind you, this ammo is not banned/prohibited in most if not all jurisdictions. It is just a company decision not to sell to private citizens.

    Maybe I should've said Federal Ammuntion Company Policy. I know its not banned. I just don't see the logic behind the Policy.

    From the movie Falling Down:

    Bill: "Rick, have you ever heard the expression, 'The customer is always right'?"
    Whammyburger Manager: "Yeah."
    Bill: "Yeah, well, here I am. The customer."
    Whammyburger Manager: "That's not our policy."

    They probably don't want to get sued when some hammerhead is running +p+ ammo through the nameless revolver great grandpa found in the trench in France during the Great War. Their lawyers probably assume LE agencies are using high quality guns capabale of handling the loads, but the general public will shoot those loads through any $75 POS, and sue them when it blows apart.

    You know, like suing the coffee seller because the hot coffee was hot.

    That's right, they must legislate against stupidity or else......

    It's a shame that a person can sue someone else over their own stupidity. If I don't know enough to NOT shoot hot loads through a POS, then I shouldn't be shooting.

    It would be like saying, "I feel sick today, but my wife looks healthy and she takes a birth control pill everyday, so I'll take them too." When such a man get's sick from a hormone imbalance, it's nobody's fault but his own.

    Thumbs up label directions

    Have you heard about the new label that will have to put on the guns sold in the future. It's a label with an arrow on it and it has the word frount under the arrow.
