I think that all of the handguns ive bought came with the 2 spent casings.. The high standard 1911 that i bought a few months ago came with them

I can understand the relevance with a revolver, but with a semi auto like the Glock, any crook can swap bbl, extractor, firing pin and ejector and the cartridges will not match the gun, it's the same with many other firearms.

probably the idea of one of those gun experts at office that say that a semi auto AR is an assault weapon, give me a break!!!!

its a pretty dumb idea. you cant match a case to a gun after months of use much less years. as the gun functions it will develop flaws in the bolt face extracter ejector and chamber changing it drasticaly from when it was first created.

the only way forensic ballistics to work is to recover the gun very quickly after a crime before further use alters or adds more flaws to the critical work areas.

trying to match a gun to a old bullet or case only works in detective fiction and csi miami. its a huge waste of taxpayer money. the only thing itdoes is make hoplophobes feel good.

I can't even imagine a brand new pistol having marks that would distinguish it from others. Maybe certain batches or lots would have distinguishable marks, but gun to gun on a newly manufactured firearm seems really far-fetched.

I agree with JonM (nothing new here) that it is just a huge waste of money...however it is NOT government money being wasted. It is another of those cases of onerous regulation that we hear about that costs consumers more and more money they shouldn't have to spend.
