Specialty & AP pistol ammo

I'm new to this forum, and I've recently joined a bunch of forums in my effort to reach out to anyone who is interested in what I am interested in: special-purpose gadgety pistol ammo. The weird stuff with odd tips; exploders, multiball, darts, cutters, slicer, dicers, expanders, plastics & teflon. I have an extensive history in collecting & researching and a large collection. I'm with the International Ammunition Association (IAA), and I have written a book on the topic of pistol-caliber armor piercing ammo which is my main point of collecting. Below are pics of the stuff I collect; a reference sheet I made for pistol-caliber AP ammo, a box of mixed caliber specialty ammo, and a box of 9mm specialty ammo. Please ask questions or let me know if you are interested in collecting this stuff as well.

KTW Teflon, American Ballistics, National Cartridge, Alia armor piercing, Omnishock, Geco Metal piercing, Remingotn Hi-way master, Peters Highway patrol, SIB armor piercing, Arcane 9mm, VBR ammo, SCMITR, GEA Cyclone, 7.62x25 API, ALPHA 9mm, CBAP 9mm, ANSB, Libra Snail, M39/B, 6.5x25 CBJ, PPS MSC, 224 VOB, 223 timbs, Magsafe, Beehive, armscor strike 3, equalloy, hydrashok, village metalworks safe stop, multiball, kawser pingrabber, kawser pin grabber, velet exploder, velex exploder, FXlabs, D&D omega star, Thunderzap, BBM hardcap, cobra gun HSA, Hirtenberger EMB, DAG Action-3, simunition, Aguila IQ, Triton quick shok, Hi Vel Hypersonic, Mesko Hornet, Mesko Mosquito, Mesko Wasp, XM261, KTW 22 pokey, etc...

Wow, what an interesting and unique collection. How long did it take you to amass that fine collection, and what piqued your interest in this stuff. I've been shootin' over 50 yrs, troll the local gunshows regularly, but I have NEVER seen anything like this collection of yours. Truly amazing.........

Catridgecollector you must be the person I am looking for. Do you know where I can find OC pepper rounds? These are revolver defense rounds that shoot a powder version of pepper spray. They are popular in Europe but no body has even heard of them in the U.S.
(nice collection by the way!)

That's too kewl. I have an older and a younger brother that are crazy about odd calibers and projectiles. Rifles mostly, but all these oddball, unique rounds. I really like that collection.

Some of those wierd pointed ones pique my interest. I always dug the .224 BOZ too. I remember reading about it in Handgunner years ago. I think they had a 1911 from Smoking Hole/Aaron Harris and a Glock converted from 10 to .224. What a sick round. Pre 5.7 days, for sure.

Possesion of AP handgun ammo in the US is illegal for normal civilians. Do you have some sort of permit that allows this? If not, I'd pull this post, if I were you.

Uh-uh. Urban legend alert.

Not illegal to buy, sell, trade, or possess. Illegal to carry in a gun in some jurisdictions, maybe...but perfectly legal to have and to hold. Otherwise, it would be illegal to have .30-30 ammunition in your possession if you also owned a TC Contender chambered for it.
