Yeah, I know, except my question is essentially about acquiring a copy of the article, or at least a transcript. Or asking about it’s content to determine if I would really want it. It’s a long shot anyway. The NTOA is one of those groups very protective of their newsletter, somewhat like the AFTE, but I cracked that nut. This one’s a little harder, but I’m holding out to find a member who might have the multi-CD archive. My problem is that, in terms of collecting pistol-caliber AP and AP-style cartridges (and info related to them), is that there are many references which refer to police-only publications, like “Law & order”, “Police product news”, or the NTOA journal to name just a few. There’s Ebay, but that’s a long hard road when trying to find all of the 70’s & 80’s articles & issues since these are no where near as common as say “Guns & ammo” magazine. I’ll get 'em slowly but surely.
The article in question was a police report essentially about the occurrence of homemade pistol caliber AP, and different variations thereof which were basically hollow-points with various penetrators fitted to them (illegal). I’m a photo and info hound for that kind of rare stuff, hence the interest.
