    Are then any laws regulating the carry of hollow point rounds?

    If there are any, I do not know about them. If you look at the top of every page, there is a button called "gun laws." Click on it and read the law yourself.

    EDIT to add: If something is not specifically mentioned as illegal, it is legal. IANAL!!

    Just having them in your possession is illegal.

    In NJ

    OK in most every other state

    Yeah.. true.. However my question was in reguards to having and carrying them in the state of Georgia. This site is for Georgia laws primarily isn't it? Don't want to confuse one states laws for another and get in a bind I can't get out of.

    The very short and non-sarcastic answer to your question in the OP is NO.

    But don't take my word for it, and go read the GA. Gun Laws at the top. :righton:

    There are no laws regulating the carry of hollow point ammunition in Georgia.

    I would wonder however if you did shoot someone in self-defense with that ammo, could some attorney out their make you look like you had some kind of malicious intent in carrying those deadly bullets.

    A lawyer may try to make you out to look like anything (he used a .45, way to powerful and damaging for self defense), but hollow points are an accepted self defense round.

    No more malicious intent than most law enforcement agencies in this state, which also carry those "deadly" hollow point bullets.

    My opinion is that you don't have anything to worry about in this regard, in a Georgia courtroom, if all other aspects of the shooting incident are justified.

    Unless of course you are one of those guys that sits in your basement till all hours of the morning meticulously enlarging the hollow points in your bullets by hand and filling each cavity with poison curare. :screwy:

    I prefer a mixture of Hemlock, Poison Ivy, and the blood from a Poison Tree Frog.
