    Has anyone heard about this group wanting to "brand" ammunition?

    I don't know if its been discussed here before, but it is the company that 'owns' the 'technology' that is pushing the issue. They did it (successfully) in California. They're an anti-gun business out to make big bucks by forcing the public to 'use' their product.

    Wonder what it will take to put 'em out of business?

    Maybe someone getting falsely imprisoned after some gang banger scoops up some loose brass and dumps it at a crime scene?
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    If you wanted to couldn't you safely grind the serial number off of the casing? I'm sure if you really wanted to you could tamper with the casing to make it difficult to read.

    Tampering with ammo might be as illegal as tampering with the SN of the gun and just as easily recovered.

    The act of marking a metal changes the local densities and thus the rate of chemical reactions that can be stopped at their most revealing.

    No need to file the S/N off the firing pin. Put a good 100 rounds through the pistol and the S/N comes off on it's own. The 'technology' is vulnerable to so many attacks that only law abiding persons would have to worry about it.

    If you wanted this to really work you'd need to do it off DNA samples collected from the shooter at the time of discharge - and that's complicated.
