Alabama law prohibits the possession or sale of brass or steel teflon-coated handgun ammunition or ammunition of like kind designed to penetrate bullet-proof vests. However, this prohibition does not apply to the possession or sale of teflon-coated lead or brass ammunition designed to expand upon contact.1
Alabama does not:
- Require a license for the sale of ammunition;
- Require sellers of ammunition to maintain a record of the purchasers; or
- Prohibit persons who are ineligible to possess firearms under state law from possessing ammunition, although the federal ammunition purchaser prohibitions apply.
See our Ammunition Regulation policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
- Ala. Code § 13A-11-60.
