    It's pretty nice
    Anyone know if 357sig or 9x25 would be legal? I know Australia has a law like this and 357sig is allowed. Also heard, some countries (Brazil maybe?) have laws against having 9mm for non LE/military but 380 and 9x21 are OK. Yes, I hate 9mm that bad. :tongueout: Thanks in advance.

    India's laws prohibit private citizens from owning any caliber that is commonly used by the police or military. So 9MM is a no no, but 44 mag is ok. (not sure if there's a size limit actually. The logic is to prevent/discourage civilian raids on police/military ammunition depots.

    LOL India's law sounds like it was written by some of our brain dead congressmen. Since it is probably already illegal to raid police/military ammunition depots, making the proceeds from such raids also illegal accomplishes what, exactly?

    If you cannot own a 9mm handgun, you have a limited use for 9mm ammunition.

    Also...there's a tremendous amount of corruption in India. I would imagine the government's primary concern is government officials selling the ammo they're in charge of.
