Ammunition for self-defense may be regulated by state law

Ammunition for self-defense may be regulated by state law

Just as important as it is to pick a premium pistol for your self-defense is the choosing of the correct ammo that you will use. Ammo for self-defense has made great strides in quality and performance in its ability to penetrate and create what is commonly known as stopping power.

Self-defense ammo is not necessarily designed to kill the attacker, but rather to stop the combat and prevent them from continuing the confrontation with you or any other citizens who may be present for the confrontation. To achieve this, ammo must have the ability to create such a shock and tissue damage that the attacker instantly stops and surrenders. The stopping or “knockdown power” usually refers to the ability of the ammo to incapacitate the attacker.

Choosing a self-defense ammo is not as easy as simply walking into a Robstown, TX pistol store and making a purchase, there are many premium types of ammo that, although legal in one state, would be a felony to simply possess in another state, so you must know all of the related ammo and gun regulations and regulations in Robstown, TX and the surrounding areas.

This can be a real issue if you leave Robstown, TX and are carrying a concealed pistol or any type of pistol across state lines.

The most common and effective type of concealed handgun self-defense ammo is the “Hollow Point” for both revolvers and semi-auto pistols.

Nearly every manufacturer of ammo now makes highly practiced hollow point ammo for self-defense, each has a slight variation in the design of the ammo and casing coupled with powder, primer, and machining quality to produce exact and high precision ammo.

YouTube is a great source for citizens from Robstown, TX to learn the ballistics and true capabilities of any type of concealed handgun ammo you’re considering for self-defense use. The premium ammo (but not limited to) that a vast majority of practiced self-defense ammo comes in is:

Revolver: .38 Spl +P, .357 Mag, .44 Mag
Auto Pistols: .25 Auto, .32 Auto, .380 Auto, 9mm, .38 Super +P, .40 Cal, 10mm Auto, .357 SIG, and .45 Auto
