New Jersey's gun owners have largely heard most of the excuses when it comes to applying for pistol permits, from the classic "The Chief has not been able to sign them yet, he is (on vacation, too busy, lunar calendar has not aligned)" to the "we only process pistol permits once a week from X to Y o'clock, by appointment only."
Now legal, law abiding citizens have a new one they can add to the list... "we ran out of pistol permits."
What was surely supposed to be yet another joke of a topic or a new gun owner being pushed around by an anti-gun municipality is unfortunately, seemingly true.
Earlier today an NJGF member posted that when speaking with a friend, they were told by Clark township, a municipality known for fairly speedy processing times, that the background check was complete however the township was "out of actual permits and were waiting on a delivery."
Another member quickly responded with a similar story posted in a different NJ gun group about the city of Hoboken.
This... is not a joke.
This begs the question, how was this incompetence allowed to happen? Or perhaps this is a more sinister ploy and a measure of gun control?
No Permits, No Hand Guns
Unfortunately, as everyone knows, the only thing that results from this is the rights of law abiding citizens are being trampled and is unacceptable and a reminder of the Soviet Union days of waiting in line to purchase bread with your coupon.
While it is no secret that many gun owners are applying for multiple permits in order to get ahead of the draconian price increase that Governor Murphy is trying to push through, there is simply no excuse today.
A question for the community, has the state ever "run out" of pistol permits in the past?
What other townships and municipalities are "running out" of permits?
If you have not done so already, take a look at the topic here.
6/4/2019 - NJGF Meetup @ Garden State Shooting Center
Minden, NV, April 19, 2019 – Innovative firearms manufacturer, Franklin Armory®, is now accepting orders from the State of New Jersey for the Reformation™ RS7™ and RS11™.
Franklin Armory™ President, Jay Jacobson, noted, “We have been working with the New Jersey State Police to confirm the legality of the Reformation™ firearms in the state. Department personnel were unable to provide any statutes that would prohibit the legal purchase, transfer, and/or possession of the RS7™ and RS11™ within the state of New Jersey.”
Reformation™ firearms shipping to New Jersey will feature ten round Magpul Pmag magazines and a Franklin Armory® custom tuned trigger. Since Reformation™ firearms do not readily fall under the definitions of rifle, shotgun, or pistol under state law, they have not been shown to trigger the New Jersey Assault Weapon classification. Additionally, since they have not been shown to be classified as a state defined rifle or shotgun, they cannot be defined as a state defined short barreled rifle or short barreled shotgun. Reformation™ firearms are still considered NON-NFA firearms under federal law and will NOT require a $200 tax stamp.

Today we find a massive rise in popularity of both long range and extended long range shooting. Most impressive is that you can find plenty of videos of gun owners shooting milk jugs from 1,000 yards to over a mile away with stock guns!
So what's changed?
