...As far as the issue of legal modifications to a handgun somehow making prosecution more likely in the event of a legal shooting, well that is just another intertnet myth........lets see the news articles about DA's prosecuting gun owners for using legally modified handguns when the use of the gun was justified otherwise...
In a different thread, pirate made this point.I have and I am well aware of Mr. Ayoob's thoughts and writings on this issue but it does not change the fact there are just no real documented cases of legal modifications or in this case just parts ungrades to a handgun changing the outcome of a trial for the negative of the shooter if the shooting was deamed legally defendable...
I know there was a case where ammo (believe use of 10mm) came into question. I am sure I can track down examples where self-loaded cartridge used in SD resulted in legal troubles (that is a form of legal modifications). In addition, there is that case were a guy used some lighter strength ammo he had loaded for his wife, somehow that messed with the ballistics and made it appear that he was a greater distance. Lastly, a persons overall gun collection or group associations has been brought up (making the gun owner appear to be someone looking for a fight).
Now lastly, I believe there was someone with a a skull, or some remark, engraved on a handgun. This one I can't find, and may just be internet lies.
Now back to what pirate stated. Arguments of legal modified ammo is a simple step to legal modified firearm aside.
Are there any examples of a legaly modified firearm resulting in prosecution?
