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.
That is correct, I asked him why bother.. he said 2 parts 1 he wanted to see them deny him, 2 to have a year 1 nj permit as a collectable….. not sure why some people are so pissed off seems as though the more people applying/issued the better
I know of several people that are able to carry nationwide due to employment that have applied… in case people didn’t know…not every NJ cop knows the minutia of the carry rules under the federal statues, and more than a few have had issues when carrying in nj and contact with nj leo..
Wouldn't recommend .22lr, but as other have said, it may be better than nothing. Look into carrying Federal Punch ammo. It's pretty much the only round that will consistently penetrate ballistics gel the 12-16" out of a hand gun. Most .22LR HP ammo will not open up well out of handgun, and if it does it won't penetrate far so might has go with a round nose designed for the job. You may also want to go with something that has a longer barrel to get the most velocity out of the round.
The trick is to allow enough non-compressible fluid into the cavity to disrupt the bullet/jacket. Will silicone allow for that under various conditions, hard to tell. It appears to me that the "insert" that Hornady uses is slightly more rigid than your average caulk. I would probably try to replicate the durometer of what they use as closely as possible, since I'm sure that they went thru many test cycles to determine what works best. IIRC, the Critical Defense bullets also have a different jacket to enhance expansion.
