Re: IS & AIN'T

I think the prohibition of use of expanding bullets and soft tip bullets is covered under the Hague conventions of 1899 and 1907, which the US is a signer of. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I'll take your word on that - I don't recall the exact dates, that sounds right, b...

Re: IS & AIN'T

Also the use of soft points etc according to the IRC is banned under Customary International Law, although the US argues that at times it can be legal due to Military Necessity.
