    I believe the only place it's questionable is New Jersey, but most mere mortals can't carry there (legally) anyway. Haven't heard of restrictions anywhere else.

    What would you carry besides JHP as a self-defense round?

    Yes, I used to live there. My cousin currently lives in Beaverton and carries Spear Gold Dot by CCI or Hornady TAP FPD.

    Corbon Hardball is a good option too.

    Ammo is really expensive.

    I'd make sure you gun can properly cycle JHPs. Some guns refuse to feed JHPs and will only feed FMJs. Corbon Pow'rball is supposed to work well in guns that won't feed JHPs.

    I've heard that you should only carry JHPs in 9mm and above or .38Spl and above. Lesser calibers the theory is that you need the mass of the round to be more concentrated to get better penetration. YMMV.

    Yes.

    Since there doesn't seemto be all that much shooting for our boys in Asia, I wonder what is driving the price up.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I don't know about you guys, but $159 for 1000 rounds of 9mm is not "too expensive."

    Very true.

    I've seen a PA-63 that won't feed HP, and an SKS that won't feed soft-tips.

    I've yet to try HP's in any of MY guns yet.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
