Truncated Cone Hollow Point Ammo: TCHP Bullets Explained

The truncated cone hollow point (TCHP) is a truncated cone bullet with a hole in the tip to promote expansion on impact and to boost the stopping power. The standard truncated cone is a smooth-feeding bullet with more penetration than your average round nose or soft point, due to the shape.

For penetration, the TC bullet type is a spectacular choice for semi-automatic pistols and rifles. If you add in the stopping power of the hollow point, you’ve got a bullet that will devastate a soft target if it impacts any vital area.
 

Semi-Jacketed Soft Point Ammo: SJSP Bullets Explained

The semi-jacketed soft point (SJSP) is another hollow point alternative bullet – with an exposed lead soft point that gives very reliable expansion on impact, along with deeper penetration than your average hollow point.

You can usually find the semi-jacketed soft point with a copper jacket of various lengths and thickness to go with a lead core. Some manufacturers have this bullet in use with different materials, with a “lead-like” tip or other specialized components, so they can be used in regions where lead is banned. This particular bullet can be used for home defense, but you can also find them in rifle calibers for hunting.

When you look up the term “workmanlike” in the Merrian-Webster Dictionary, one definition is “competent and skillful but not outstanding or original.” Given the leftward-slant of publishing folks these days, the dictionary company would probably be horrified to learn they just perfectly capsulized the Stoeger STR-9 pistol family.

As 2024 gets underway next week, it will be easy to focus on the national and global stories of the day. But don't let all of those big shiny objects distract you from the goings on in your own community. As former House Speaker Tip O'Neil often said, "All politics is local."

The notion that members of an industry making and selling legal products—a sector whose consumers, in fact, have constitutional protections to own its products—should not be allowed to advertise the sale of its firearms, its competitions or even its actual gun-safety and training courses, is continuing to percolate in various parts of America.

In mid-October of 2023, Judge Benitez, in a powerful ruling, took longtime activist Professor Donohue to task in Miller v Becerra.

John J. Donohue III is a lawyer and economist who has published numerous papers. Many of those papers were statistical studies about guns and crime. He is a professor at Stanford Law School. Some of his prominent papers dispute the findings of John Lott, who found an increase in the issuance of carry permits led to a decrease in homicides.

We want to bring you an update on our ongoing efforts to overturn Judge Karin Immergut’s absurd and unconstitutional ruling.

2023 was a momentous year for permitless carry gun laws, with the U.S. officially becoming a constitutional carry-majority nation this spring. “The gun control lobby and their allies pledged to dismantle self-defense laws and the Second Amendment. That strategy has backfired. In 2021, there were 16 states with NRA Constitutional Carry. Just three years later, there are 27 states. Americans in 11 states stood with freedom and the NRA,” NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre exclusively told Fox News Digital.

Jan. 1 will bring hundreds of new California laws to raise the cost of living and further regulate our lives. Here are a few of the worst passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Senate Bill 2 (2023) adds further limitations to where a concealed firearm can be carried in public; and limits permits to those having “good moral character,” as determined subjectively by the state.

The Rise and Fall and Rise of the Metal Framed, Double Stack 9mm Pistol

One trend I spotted at the 2023 SHOT Show was the increasing popularity of single-action, metal-framed 9mm pistols with double stack magazines. Staccato has built their reputation on that sort of pistol, Beretta rolled out a single action version of the iconic Model 92 pistol, Dan Wesson rolled out the DWX (for real), and Springfield Armory was showing off the new DS Prodigy. Polymer-framed, striker-fired pistols used to rule the concealed carry market, but lately, it seems all the cool kids are moving towards metal frames and manual safeties.
