I'm new to this forum (joined today), and I initially joined just to jump into a discussion about a scamming online ammo seller. Now that that post is all set, I figured I would post my usual new-forum shout-out to ammo collectors which is about what I am interested in: special-purpose gadgety pistol ammo. The weird stuff with odd tips; exploders, multiball, darts, cutters, slicers, dicers, expanders, plastics & teflon. I have an extensive history in collecting & researching and a large collection. I'm with the International Ammunition Association (IAA), and I have written a book on the topic of pistol-caliber armor piercing ammo which is my main point of collecting. Below are pics of the stuff I collect; a reference sheet I made for pistol-caliber AP ammo, a box of mixed caliber specialty ammo, and a box of 9mm specialty ammo. Some people recognize the middle box photo as having been around in other forums from a user named "AlWilliam". I know Al, and I bought most of his collection a few years ago. Last year I made an identification key for the middle box at this address: http://ammo.ar15.com/project/Handgun_Ammo_FAQnRules/ExoticHandgunAmmo.htm I've done some articles for the IAA journal and some table displays at the St Louis International Cartridge shows each year. Please ask questions or let me know if you are interested in collecting this stuff as well. My website which is under construction (information only, I am not selling anything) is here: http://www.gadgetbullets.com

looks like at least half of that could only be used in a carbine legally.

Groo - I see why you might think that since there's lots of misinformation spewed out by the media and anti-gun politicians, but half of that pistol ammo is fully legal in all states, and only the AP loads would be restricted in CA, IL, TX, KY, NJ, Wash D.C., and only "truncated" pistol AP is restricted in FL & RI. A few other states have restrictions on pistol ammo with Teflon coatings (KTW), but there is plenty of pistol caliber AP ammo without Teflon coating to use in those state. The federal law from 1986 only restricts the commercial importation of, and commercial manufacture of such ammo. Even in any of those restricted areas, anyone can own that stuff if they have a class 10 / 11 FFL.
