    Realizing this May have already been posted (but I couldn't find it), I got this email from TSRA this evening:

    Congressman John Culberson (R-Harris Co) Says Repeal of Ammo Ban Immediate and Permanent!
    Half an hour ago, Congressman John Culberton (R-Harris Co) called TSRA and asked that we get the message out to our members.

    The ban on green tip ammo has been repealed and it's gone for good!

    Congressman Culberson chairs a committee with direct influence over BATF and was able to convince those within the agency to remove the ban. We were also told that the ban was actually the first of several. All part of a "research project" designed to review many types of common ammunition which might be armor-piercing.

    God Bless the Texas Delegation and God Bless Congressman John Culberson who remembers TSRA members sent him to Congress many years ago and took a moment to call.

    And as always,
    Keep the faith.

    A bit premature...the ATF's statement says "more study is required" or somesuch. Basically, it's shelved for now but they'll be trying again as soon as they think they can slip it by. Hardly "gone for good".

    I stocked up on the ammo and the plan is to shoot the crap out of it this summer. Can't wait!
