    In Need of Miscellaneous Handgun Ammo for Classes

    I am In need of Miscellaneous Handgun Ammo for future NRA Basic Pistol Classes. If you have a few extra rounds of any caliber lying around, or are willing to give up a round or two for training purposes, please let me know. They will not be fired, just put in a clear case for people to see.

    I am also trying to find bullets that have been fired and recovered for expansion comparison purposes.

    Thanks Everyone!

    Contact a local NRA training counsler in reloading. They sometimes can help with displays and aids. This is how I got a lot of the bullets I use in classes.

    Don't forget the "NO LIVE AMMO IN CLASS" rule. Be sure that the primer pockets are empty or double check to ensure that they are not "live".

    I have bullets in the following calibers: .50 (AE or .500 s&w), .44, 10mm (same as a .40 s&w), 9mm (same as .357 sig, or .357mag), .223, .22.

    I have brass for the above calibers as well as an assortment of other brass acquired on the range. Only a few .454 Casull, .50AE, .500 s&w, lots of .40 s&w, 9mm, .22LR, .223.

    Let me know what you need and how to get it to you.

    Besides, the empty, or used primers, another trick is to paint the demo ammo brass with a green stripe. In addition a great idea is to drill a small holes in the side of the case.

    This will make triple sure you are not bringing any live ammo in the classroom.

    One round is all it takes for a catastrophe.

    Glad I was able to help. Here's where I buy my "dummy" cartridges, which I use for the "dry fire" portion of my classes. It works well for "ball & dummy drills" as well. Oregon Firearms Academy LLC Pro-Shop - Training Cartridges

    The brass is genuine Starline brand nickle plated brass, so it's very durable. The bullet portion of the cartridge is a bright color, which facilitates finding in a grassy area. I like the way that they make the .40 s&w dummy cartridge bright yellow/green to make it easier to identify when placed next to a 9mm dummy cartridge.

    Let me know if you need any more stuff or other assistance.
