    So if you can buy the bullets w/ the numbers stamped for reloading...whats to stop a guy from dremeling off the numbers, reloading them, & then bad guys using them?

    Or a bad guy buys a box of ammo, pulls the bullet, erases the #'s & reinstalls the bullet.

    Our Politicians are soooo lame...:mad:

    :cool:

    Read it while back, and believe is only firm involved.

    I thought before that ONE of , the most intersting things involving their
    literature/product is that per their own scope, they have a patented
    product first, and are now waiting for , and which will require , Federal legislation......whether all/some/none of such a concept or use is or ever
    will be of anything is one thing , but to me, if this firm winds up as player
    I think money trail should be followed, of course that only brings vermin
    into light of day, but that's sometimes all we have.

    :cool:

    The fallacy for ammo microstamping is that most of us aren't capable of manufacturing a gun but most of us are capable (with the equipment) of making ammo. In addition there is so much ammo in the average individuals possession that it will take 50 years to get to the point where the stamped ammo is needed by the criminals. The law is an attempt to make criminals out of lawful gun owners. I will never throw out a bullet just because it doesn't have a stupid stamp on it.

    I agree 100%. But they also don't want you to have ammo anymore, did you see the thread on limited life primers?

    I was at the local gun shop yesterday and was going to buy 1000 win sm rifle primers and the owner told me I could only buy 500, it was only the win. for some reason, I know the other gun shops around here have em and don't ration them yet. This place is like the twilight zone anyway.

    Correct. Fourteen years assigned to homicide and the vast majority of cases solved involved hours and hours, days and days (sometimes months and years) of plain old detective work. Talking to people, delving into the victim's history and connections, his/her movements, etc. Sure, it is great to find/recover the weapon but there still must be a nexus established between that weapon and the recovered bullet and the suspect or defendant. Stamping bullets or casings may be a piece of evidence but it will still be a reach to make the necessary connections. Just because someone bought a box of ammo last year and one of those bullets was used in a crime this year or any subsequent year will still result in a looooong way to arrest and conviction without supporting evidence and/or testimony.
