There are so many varieties of ammo on the market today, but not every type is perceived the same in the eyes of the law. Watch Independent Program Attorney Justin McShane explain how the type of ammo you use could affect you.
Justin McShane: God bless the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, particularly when it comes to ammunition. We have no particular applicable laws when it comes to ammunition and it’s use, unlike some other states that has to do with hollow point and hollow point related carry and loads. Also, with number of rounds we don’t have that. The only thing we have to worry about are situations you’re not typically going to be involved with. And that’s going to be the federal armor piercing rounds, making them of your own and possessing them in an odd circumstance. Or number two is if you use Teflon coated rounds in the commission of a felony in Pennsylvania or federally is against the wall. There is no special ammunition restrictions when it comes to type other than the off the wall federal situations I talked about, or number two when it comes to magazine restrictions. God bless the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
