Indiana generally prohibits people from knowingly or intentionally manufacturing, possessing, transferring or offering to transfer armor-piercing ammunition, as defined.1 Indiana weakened its definition of “armor-piercing ammunition” in 2017.2 Note that the federal prohibitions on certain kinds of armor-piercing ammunition also apply.
Indiana does not:
- Require a license for the sale of ammunition;
- Require sellers of ammunition to maintain a record of the purchasers;
- Require a license to purchase or possess ammunition; or
- Impose a minimum age for the purchase or possession of ammunition.
