The ultra-deadly hollow point bullets aren't exactly for target practice now, are they?
They dropped the charges against him. He should consider himself very lucky, but seeing the way he has responded before, that's too much to hope for.
Of course they're not for target practice. You don't conceal carry a firearm on the off-chance you may go to a shooting range. That's nonsense.
I don't know where Lay Low lives, but I've NEVER heard of a shooting range requiring you use hollow points. That would be a range I wouldn't go to.
Fine, I learned something that I didn't know, but he still wasn't carrying it for target practice.
But hollow points are considered more deadly than non-hollow, when used against a human - or am I wrong again? .
More deadly against a single target. Their purpose is to expel all of their energy into the target, and stop. It is the ideal ammo for self-defense, as the risk of the bullet going through the bad guy and hitting someone/something else is greatly reduced. There isn't a police force in this country that does not use hollow points, and the only citizens who use FMJ for self-defense are highly irresponsible.
Hollow points have less penetration than FMJ, meaning they also are less likely to pierce a bullet-resistant vest. But the media would have you to believe the opposite, and call them "cop-killer" bullets, which is complete bullshit.
