Default AR Pistol and green tip 5.56 ammo

Is it legal to shoot the green tip 5.56 ammo from an AR pistol?
Are those considered armor piercing ammo?

I want to double check someone told me they didnt think i could use them in the pistol because they were AP. just want to be sure

Per BATFE...
5.56x45mm M855 (F1/C77/DM11/L2A2/SS109) "green tip" ammo is not considered AP ammo.
