Bugs

PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Although +P rounds are available from most vendors, their scarcity from some vendors, particularly Gun Runners, appears to be unintentional. Specifically, +P rounds are not included in a vendor list which contains all other non-standard types of bullet ammunition.[verified]
