He then told me that the red Hornadys are the only JHP that can be legally used in the state of New Jersey, I have 3 9mm pistols. My LGS sold me a few boxes of Sig V-Crown 9mm JHP for home defense a few months ago. Today I tried a new series to see if I wanted to join. After touring for about an hour, we decided to become members. I asked for .357 Magnum ammunition for my new 686-6+ and he said they only had Hornady Critical Defense ammunition to buy.
He then told me that Hornady`s red lace is the only JHP that can be legally used in the state of New Jersey. This surprised me because the LGS sold me the other JHPs and never said anything about not being able to use them in a home defense situation. Can anyone confirm that the Sig V-Crowns are basically just expensive range ammunition?

Possession of certain types of ammunition in New Jersey is illegal due to the nature of the ammunition. First and foremost, bulletproof vests or dum-dum that penetrate or pierce bullets are generally illegal for the public in the state of New Jersey. Ammunition designed to penetrate, pierce or pierce bulletproof vests is primarily intended for use in handguns. The bullet design consists of a core or jacket (if the jacket is more than 0.025 inches thick) made of tungsten carbide, dense bronze, or another material stronger than an index of 72 or higher on the Rockwell B hardness scale and therefore capable of penetrating the bulletproof vest. Currently, the state is working to make bulletproof vests that pierce bullets only for law enforcement officers.
Collectors can buy and collect such ammunition, but can only have three representatives of each distinctive variant. Examples of different deviations may include differences in material composition, ball design, or head stamps according to 2C:39-3(f). See N.J.S.A. 2C:39-3(f) for the detailed NJ code on this topic and N.J.S.A. 2C:39-6 for related exceptions. In addition to ammunition issues, many weapons, such as sawed-off shotguns, are illegal in New Jersey. Possession of a sawed-off shotgun is a third-degree felony. The state has also banned assault weapons and many other weapons. The consequences are serious for those found in possession of illegal weapons, ammunition, magazines and modifications of weapons or ammunition.
Where the hell have you heard that a FPIC protects you when found in possession of hollow-point ammunition? In New Jersey, it is also illegal to possess hollow or hollow bullets unless you are involved in one of the activities considered “exceptions.” These include: hunting, fishing and target shooting. You may also own hollow-nosed or hollow-tipped balls on your personal property or on the way to a point of sale. Possession of hollow-nosed or hollow-point bullets is considered a fourth-degree felony punishable by up to 18 months in New Jersey State Prison. 2.
