NJ Prepared is a new section dedicated to those who are interested in practical prepping - UNRELATED TO FIREARMS . We are not looking for political discussions or tin foil hat conspiracy's. This is a place to share what knowledge you have and exchange information with fellow members who wish to learn what it takes to get through a disaster. Whether natural or man made. Gear reviews, Food Storage, First Aid etc... This section will hopefully help teach us the skills and knowledge needed to keep yourself and your family safe during times of distress in the state or country.
Discussion place for all things supposed wicked fast or wicked quiet... NFA regulated firearms, for NJGF members living outside NJ or NJ residents fortunate enough to have a place outside the wall of tyranny.
I would have already bought it but unfortunately Tula uses a "copper washed steel jacket bullet"... the following is a quote from an online review of the Tula .38 special ammo...
"The 130gr Tula .38 Special ammo I tested was a pretty standard Tula product: full metal jacket bullet, polymer-coated steel case, and a non-corrosive Boxer Primer. The bullet also attracted a magnet, indicating that it had a copper washed steel jacket. This is something to keep in mind before you buy any Tula products, as many ranges do not allow shooters to use steel jacketed bullets."
@45Doll thanks for your suggestions! Very helpful!
Concerning Shadow's 2 trigger, I find the "creep" a tiny bit more noticeable than on my P210. (Again, I'm still very much a newbie so this is just my humble opinion) As a whole package I put Shadow 2 slightly above P210...
Picked up an M&P Shield plus in 9mm, like it, trigger is nice and it’s a 10 round mag. Bought it for a HD gun, takes some practice getting use to a small polymer gun, you need to really pay attention to grip, trigger finger placement to be able to take advantage of the gun, was a bit frustrating at the start but I am growing to like it more and more.
If a hammer fired is on your list, I would suggest a 1911, in what ever flavor round you like, have a colt in .45 acp, one of my favorite guns, handles very easily, shoots like a dream. Also just picked up a Kimber custom LW in 9mm, I see this one becoming my favorite pistol, being use to the colt already this was an easy purchase, shoots very soft, extremely accurate and a ton of fun.
The Kimber will be under your 1k budget
