Oh my! Better call the FBI and turn yourself in. Ask for the "mattress tag enforcement division" they also do the spent shells.
Ok, that was a joke. There is a law in some states that all handguns have to include a spent shell that is put into an archive so that shells left at crime scenes can be collected and compared. Great sounding theory --> but never has a single miscreant been found because of it. Ever. Total waste of taxpayer dollars and valuable law enforcement time. If you have the shell, you don't live in one of those places.
