    UPDATE: Note dont get this wrong people im not worried about doomsday im just speaking hypothetically if it was to happen and had a sidearm filled with 9mm wouldnt you rather want this in you mag... Plus just curious if its legal to buy since you can buy 7.62X54r that is armor piercing and is legal....

    Some company name VBR-Belgium that makes 9mm armor piercing ammo... Haven't checked to see if anybody sells this or is it even legal to buy?
    Definitely not good for everyday defense or range day rounds but SHTF DOOMSDAY like the new crazy show called DOOMSDAY PREPPERS... I would think this is best if you need to arm yourself if people are killing eachother and trying to steal your food and you need to survive...

    Do they sell this anywhere?

    If you really wanted AP ammo, why bother with 9mm?

    :dunno:

    wow...

    Yeah most any ammo from a rifle will do this...any of the russian or NATO rounds and pretty much any hunting round in between will penetrate just about anything...

    haha this is ridiculous

    Rifle ammo rather than pistol ammo.

    Importation of armor piercing ammunition in handgun calibers is restricted by federal law (some explanation HERE and a shorter summary HERE).

    Also, Florida Statute 790.31 prohibits possession of armor piercing handgun ammunition where the possessor is aware of its capabilities AND it is loaded in a firearm (790.31 also prohibits some other so-called "exotic ammunition" such as "dragons breath", "bolo shell" and/or "flechette shell").

    I would go for a rifle caliber such as the 5.56 M855 Penetrator

    This is what I was able to find online, granted this is not "hardened" steel, it is still 1/4 inch thick.

    Don't know if it will penetrate Level 3 armor but should defeat lower level pistol armor.

    First of all, the US Govt can't ban ammunition because it has the ABILITY in it's normal form to punch through armor. Like the .50 BMG, you can go to a Cabela's and buy one and just the normal round itself will defeat any type of man made body armor.

    Secondly, you are not allowed to own or posses any ammunition in the USA that is armor piercing and made for handguns. 7.62x54R is not a handgun round, so until someone starts making a 7.62x54r handgun it will be legal to posses "black tip" ammo.

    This is just a laymans explanation, I am by no means an expert although I'm positive someone will correct me if I'm wrong.


    By the way, how old are you? Just wondering.

    If the zombies are coming at you with armor, a pistol ain't gonna help things much!

    Ahhh ok so u can buy rifle ammo that supposingly pierces body armor but you cant buy pistol ammo that pierces... Makes no sense... If a bad guy wants too he will use the rifle so i think its stupid having a ban...
