All, here is the Indiana statute regarding armor piercing ammo, for all of the Hoosiers out there. I hope it helps ease some confusion. I still love this pistol, though, and I'm fine without AP.

IC 35-47-5-11
"Armor-piercing handgun ammunition" defined; related offenses
Sec. 11. (a) As used in this section, "armor-piercing handgun ammunition" means a cartridge that:
(1) can be fired in a handgun; and
(2) will, upon firing, expel a projectile that has a metal core and an outer coating of plastic.
(b) A person who knowingly or intentionally:
(1) manufactures;
(2) possesses;
(3) transfers possession of; or
(4) offers to transfer possession of;
armor-piercing handgun ammunition commits a Class C felony.
(c) This section does not apply to nylon coated ammunition, plastic shot capsules, or ammunition designed to be used in rifles or shotguns.
(d) This section does not apply to a law enforcement officer who is acting in the course of the officer's official duties or to a person who manufactures or imports for sale or sells armor-piercing handgun ammunition to a law enforcement agency.
As added by P.L.332-1983, SEC.1. Amended by P.L.327-1987,


Stay out of trouble :MM

There are a couple of us Hoosiers in the forum. I hope this helps everyone. I got this post straight out of the Indiana.gov site in the Indiana laws and statutes.

Sorry to hear AP pistol ammo is illegal.

I went to the gun show at the Porter County Fair Grounds in Valparaiso yesterday. I could have purchased AP rifle ammo in any caliber from .223 to .50 BMG in quantity.

I did pick up a Streamlight M6x laser sight and some 35 & 40 gr. V-Max bullets to reload.

All in all it was a lot larger & better gunshow than I expected.

I don't know, does SS190 have "an outer coating of plastic"? Because it has to have both elements (note the and). Not that you wouldn't get put into court over it, but it should go your way.

Or you can make the case that the 5.7x28mm is intended for a rifle! The P90 came well, well before the handgun.

I think item #1 says can be fire in a handgun. The big problem is ATF has labled the SS190 as AP and I would think most States are going to go along with ATF on what is and is not AP.
