Ok I'll make it simple. You just do what you dang well please. When you happen to take someones life or seriously injure them to defend yourself or someone you love and you end up in a pair of cuffs issed by a govt agency to a person responsible with enforcing warrants issued by a judge for your arrest because some lawyer decides to get his name in the press and make a political career at your expense....spend more than $250,000.00 to defend yourself (if you can afford that, get your folks to mortgage their homes, freinds ect) you might (might if your lawyer you can afford to hire is better than the prosecuting attorney) get off. Then again, you could remove what we in law enforcement call a "red hearing" from your case. But if you want to carry your better than any cartridge manufactor can ever make bullet you put together yourself then do it. No sweat off my back. But realize that is the attitude you are sending when you stuff you favorite carry weapon with your own favorite home brewed ammo, that you are better than the professionals at CCI, Cor-Bon, Federal, Winchester, ect. Ohhh and not to mention that not a single law enforcement agency in the country allows their personnel to carry home brewed ammo (according to a survery conducted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police). I will warn you its not smart and can only lead you into a making yourself stand out and more likely to get targeted by a overzelious DA or states attorney (aka Janet Reno taking EVERY self defense shooting before a grand jury when she was the AG of Florida). For me? I'll train religiously to survive the incident and make sure that what I carry does not scream out I'm different, ie Black Talons, Pit Bull pistols ect. Yes even a name can make a gun unknowlegable jury not like you. ALWAYS remember the prosecution ALWAYS has the last word. A jury is sent out to make their verdict and the last words they have fresh in their mind is the last words they heard, the prosecutors.
Oh is you believe all prosecutors are ethical.....I know a few lacrosse players who'd love to talk to you. Wern't even their and still were "charged" with rape...and that charge will NEVER go away. Any officer who runs their name on a computer check for the rest of their lives will always find out they were indicted and criminally charged with rape. How many people will remember the case 15 or 20 years from now? But I bet they will sure have to answer that question forever. Imigian trying to get a security clearance to work for the govt? Those guys can forget it, will never happen.
I'll go walk on the grass cause I earned the right.
