Michigan Concealed Pistol License Tip: Only Use Defensive Ammo (JHPs) In Your Handgun

Michigan Concealed Pistol License Tip: If you legally carry a handgun for personal protection, it should only be loaded with defensive ammunition: Jacketed Hollow Points (JHPs).

JHPs are designed to stop in the initial target via the expansion of the bullet which dissipates the bulk of its energy as it makes contact. As a consequence, JHPs slow down and significantly reduces the possibility of "over-penetration" whereby unintended targets could be hit. Essentially, JHPs are a safety item.

Alternatively, if a person uses regular Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) ammunition in their defensive firearm, the shooter could open himself up to criminal prosecution for harming a bystander, a civil lawsuit for wrongful death, or both. For more Concealed Pistol License tips, visit our blog:
