    The question I have is: I heard NJ is the only state that does not allow hollow point ammo to be used other than in your own home. Is this true?
    If you had 15 years on the job and retired honorably, you qualify for 218 and can qualify with whatever PD is where you now live and can carry nation-wide. Contact your former Department or your PBA rep and get your papers in order.
    Here is what the Sedgwick County Kansas Sheriff says about retired officer carry.

    Under the Law Enforcement Safety Act and carrying a weapon with a retired officer qualification card under such act, the new jersey hollow point restriction would not apply. No more than the already countless number of new jersey laws realtive to concealed carry and their "who do you know" permit system. The problem is not hollow points, your problem as a retired officer is waiting for your home state to initiate legislation that would lay the ground work for the standards set forth winthin the above safety act. Pennsylvania has just now administered the required groundwork for their retired officers to qualify for the certification required under the LESA. Once qualification through a standardized course of live fire has been satisfied, a retired L.E. can carry in any state as well as D.C. The only restriction, outside of carrying on Federal Property, would be the wishes of private property owners. If such property owner does not want the carrying of a weapon within their domain, then the carrier of such permit must either leave the gun off premises or leave the property.

    I do not believe New York has set any ground work as described above. Retired New Jersey Officers should not hold their breath for that state to implement any procedure relative to the LESA.

    I think they must be certified by the department[s] where they worked and retire, but can qualify at any certified police training facility where they presently live.

    MateMike, NJ law has been changed. The 6 month provision has been removed for NJ.

    New Jersey State Police - Retired Officers Right To Carry

    LEOSA (sometimes called HR 218 by cops) allows u to carry nationwide, as long as u meet the criteria: current or retired LEO, not prohibited from owning or carrying firearms, qualify once (or more) per year in your state of residence.

    LEOSA does not protect you as far as laws/regulations on ammunition; if NJ does not allow citizens with carry permits to use hollow point ammo, then neither are you. It also does not exempt you from magazine restrictions (in other words, when in NJ, leave the magazines over 15 rounds at home). Another word of caution, it only cancels the application of state law, NOT any federal law that existed before it. So, no carrying in federal buildings, commercial aircraft, or anywhere else prohibited by federal law.

    There's an attorney in NJ that gives a seminar on how this law applies, and how you can be compliant and avoid inadvertently breaking the law. If you want to contact me privately, I'll give you his contact information. He offers this seminar to active and retired LEO's, other attorneys, and even whole departments. He has successfully argued this law in court, in NJ and NY, as well as in Federal District court.

    On a different note, since when is a carry permit not needed in Florida?

    Default where HP not allowed

    When in NJ all carry guns should have a 4 or a 5 in the caliber.

    A few expanding bullets are not HP and will expand just fine. There are many jurisdictions with strange gun and bullet laws. Topeka Kansas doesn't allow plastic tipped bullets, New Mexico doesn't allow you to carry a back-up concealed. Oklahoma does not allow calibers above .45. [so that excludes the .50 GI and the .500 S&W, but a 460 S&W is legal

    Federal Premium Expanding Full Metal Jacket Ammunition is an ideal choice for law enforcement agencies that don't permit hollow point ammunition. This revolutionary barrier-penetrating design combines a scored full metal nose over an internal rubber tip that collapses on impact. It never fills with barrier material and assures expansion on every shot. A lead core at the base maintains weight retention. This is loaded ammunition.

    Howdy, first post here.

    I'm an LEO and was surfing for information on New jersey laws when I found this site.

    I noted the posting above and wanted to make note that we are working on the law in Topeka (as in rescinding the whole thing) since it was/is poorly written and was originally passed to ban "Rhino ammo" in a knee jerk reaction by some anti-gun folks who are no longer around.

    This law literally bans any plastic tipped or plastic ammo, so even such training ammo as Simunitions marking rounds would be illegal.

    Default New jersey sucks

    You can't even pump your own gas. Gun owners are made to jump though hoops. The taxes are among the highest in the nation.

    IMO, NEW JERSEY SUCKS.

    Notwithstanding any provision of any state law with few exceptions including limitations on government property, limitiations on carrying against the wishes of a private property owner, and certain prohibitive weapons...machine guns, silencers,etc. Hollow point bullets are not among the prohibitions regarding the officers safety act. Please don't use the logic that because new jersey residents can't carry hollow points that it also applies to officer safety act carriers. To use that argument to its logical conclusion then one could argue that officers carrying under the color of the officers safety act would also need a new jersey carry permit like private citizens of that state. How about the law in north carolina where a citizen is required to notify a police officer on a traffic stop that they are carrying a weapon. The required notification in north carolina and the hollow point prohibition in new jersey do not apply relative to the provisions of the officers safety act. Please don't read beyond the intent of the law.
