    FL banned certain ammo???

    Someone came by the shop a few weeks back and I just remembered what he was yapping about....

    He said FL has banned the use, ownership, and sale of .40 ammo.

    Is this even remotely true???? Did he misinterpret something else he heard?

    I don't see how one type of ammo can be banned anywhere in the United States. There are much more powerful and deadly calibers than the .40.

    Uhh, I just bought a 50 round box of Golden Saber Bonded .40 in Central FL, and a couple hundred rounds of WWB. Where's that can of BS repellant when I need it?

    You mean like New Jersey, where you can't have hollow points?

    I didn't know there was a ban on hollow points in New Jersey, that's interesting.

    Lets see... Florida...hhmm... a state known for its gun friendly attitude... restricting ammo? Yeah, that seems likely! (sarcasm off)

    That guy sounds like just another gun store junky who knows nothing about firearms or laws. Probobly borderline mall ninja.

    It is banned except for Rasta Narc, the only one in this room qualified to handle this gun.

    N.J.S.A 2C:39-3f(1) limits the possession of hollow nose ammunition. However, there is a general exception that allows for the purchase of this ammunition but restricts the possession of it to specified locations. This exception provides that:

    (2) Nothing is sub section f (1) shall be construed to prevent a person from keeping such ammunition at his dwelling, premises or other land owned or possessed by him, or from carrying such ammunition from the place of purchase to said dwelling or land . . . [N.J.S.A 26:39-3g (2)].

    Thus a person may purchase this ammunition and keep it within the confines of his property. Sub section f (1) further exempts from the prohibited possession of hollow nose ammunition "persons engaged in activities pursuant to N.J.S.A 2C:39-6f. . . ."
    N.J.S.A 26:39-3f. (1).

    Activities contained in N.J.S.A 26:39-6f. can be broken down as follows:

    1.A member of a rifle or pistol club organized under rules of the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and which filed its charter with the State Police;
    2.A person engaged in hunting or target practice with a firearm legal for hunting in this State;
    3.A person going directly to a target range, and;
    4.A person going directly to an authorized place for "practice, match, target, trap or skeet shooting exhibitions."
    Very limited on what you can do with hollow points...............better NOT shoot anybody with them in NJ.

    I kinda figured that it was BS........ BUT the guy is a range instructor on PI, so I thought maybe he knew something.

    Like normal though.......... HE DOESN'T
