Don't you have to love the ways legislators employ euphemisms like "unfit elements" when they really mean "black people"?

BoogieMan, yeah, you're right. Not totally illegal, but only legal for firing range and hunting. I couldn't even find an exception for HD use. If you can find it, let me know
If your talking about a carry load, than probably not. As for keaping them in your home its perfectly legal. To be honest if im pulling the trigger in my home I am not worried about the bullet at that point.

Im in Vineland. Where abouts are you? What range you use?

That's an internet myth.
I have an original box a 9mm Black Talons. On the side of the box it says 147gr. SXT bullet.
