    Hollow Points Illegal CCW in New Jersey

    Avoiding legal traps by Massad Ayoob Issue #105

    I just read in Masad Ayoob's column that hollow point ammo is illegal in NJ when you have a CCW that is accepted there.

    WOW

    "Unfortunately, there is an ancillary charge. Had the hapless defendant read New Jersey gun laws before packing a piece there, she would also known that, alone among the fifty states, New Jersey forbids anyone but currently serving police officers from carrying hollow point ammunition in their gun in public. This goes for those who have New Jersey concealed carry permits, and for retired cops, as well.

    Know thy turf. What is legal where you live, and has become second nature to you at home, may not be approved by law where you travel." quote from Ayoob

    NJ doesn't honor ANY other state's permits...so no issue there.

    Otherwise, correct. You may only possess hollow points under certain circumstances...

    Wow - how old is that column though? It references packing.org which has been dark for quite a while.

    I love the way that even if a C&R owner, you can't have more than 3 examples of each type. Glad I don't travel to NJ anymore.
