wait are hollow points legal? for some reason i thought they werent.


Yep. They were actually standard issue for some reason when I was an MP.


In your M9? Or in your rifle as well? I could see why HPs were standard though. As an MP, on base at least, you'd most likely have to use your weapon on unarmored targets, so they'd be more effective than FMJs.

I once had this stick that was perfect for a pretend gun.

M9. Just ball ammo for the rifles and shotties. They stayed in the trunk most of the time anyway.

That makes a lot of sense. Only time I ever saw MPs with longarms was at the gate.

Just ordered this to replace the one I had while in Afghanistan. It's kinda gun related.

Ooooooh, lots of nice guns you have there. You and Tameric really love the older stuff, don't you? I like it, but I can't see myself amassing a collection like you two have.

I'm sort of in the same boat, I like my guns more modern, but a few relics would be ok. I really want to beef up my collection.
