Gun Control or Merely Incompetence? New Jersey Towns Are "Out of Permits"

Gun Control or Merely Incompetence? New Jersey Towns Are "Out of Permits"

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

Breaking Down The Barriers To Long Range Shooting!

When I first got into shooting in the mid 2000s,  I quickly became interested in long range shooting. At that time, the standard recommendation for most shooters was to pick up  a Remington 700 Police or a 700 VS and if your budget does not allow that, a Savage model 10FP, both in 308 Winchester.  Generally, both of these guns would allow you to shoot around 1 MOA or better with match grade ammunition.  In either case however,  you were recommended to get into reloading if you wanted to get

Ruger Wrangler - The Perfect Gun For New Shooters & Trainers?

Ruger Wrangler - The Perfect Gun For New Shooters & Trainers?

A number of community members know that last month, I attended a private media event sponsored by Ruger which was co-sponsored with Leupold and Hornady.    During this event, Ruger showed off and let us play with the new products which were set to be announced around the 2019 NRA show which just wrapped up.   While the central products of focus were the three Ruger long range rifles, the Ruger Precision Rifles in 6.5 PRC and 300 PRC, and the Ruger Hawkeye Long Range Target, the company

My First SHOT Show (The Takeaways and Realization it's work)

My First SHOT Show (The Takeaways and Realization it's work)

We have an astounding ability as humans to progress, apply yourself for one month and the results become noticeable, 6 months can be substantial, 12 months? Limitless. Subjectively speaking, January 2018 I was just another "gun guy" who bought guns, gear and entertained myself with endless amounts of gun media, January 2019 I was attending SHOT show as an "industry insider" media creator. If you told me a year earlier this would happen I wouldn't believe you, but stranger things have happened.
When 'Good' is Good Enough

When 'Good' is Good Enough

Since learning to shoot about 15 years ago, and more particularly in the last 10 years since starting New Jersey Gun Forums, I have been blessed with the ability to shoot a wide variety of firearms and accessories, everything from entry level handguns to rifles and shotguns which can purchase a decent house somewhere in the Mid-West. One constant in the gun world is that much like in every other hobby, there is, within a certain segment an equipment race, to have the latest and greatest gea

Range Day With A Purpose

Range Day With A Purpose

Remember when you acquired your first firearm? For most gun owners, that time was both exciting and scary!  On one hand, you acquired your first handgun and had hopefully gone to the range.  At the same time, let's admit it, unless you were in the military,  you were at least a LITTLE bit afraid, either of scratching up that shiny new bluing, not being able to put it back together after cleaning, or even leaving it unattended.  After a while however,  you become accustomed to it and it beco

The Problem with Fake News - It's Not an Innocent Mistake

(This was originally posted at An American Thinketh)   Like President Trump or not, he has exposed how truly powerful and motivated our media is. They have the power to mold public opinion and are motivated to get eyes on websites and clicks on pages to earn their ad revenue. No longer do many media companies earn their income by paper sales and advertisements, but by online advertising, clicks, impressions, banners, pop-ups, and who knows what else. With that being the basis for adverti

Fear Mongering in N.J. 2A

It’s no secret that it isn’t easy being a New Jersey firearm owner. We battle gun control activists, all branches of our State government, and most recently, ourselves. With the reduction of permissible magazine capacity from 15 to 10 rounds, firearm owners, Second Amendment advocates, and others have voiced concern from “the sky is falling” to “so what?”   I’m not in either camp. I do not believe the sky is falling, nor am I indifferent to the new restrictions on our constitutional righ

Spring 2018 Project #1 underway....

Well, the weather finally broke today..... and I decided to at least get GTO set-up to make next change.... This will be another chapter in upgrading brakes.... Car was originally a 4 wheel manual drum car..... that was quickly changed years ago to what was basically a 1970 Front Disc setup.... still no power assist. Result was not acceptable, but I drove it for a few years like that. What was wrong is that I used a 7/8" bore master cylinder which came recommended by most forums/thread

My GTO made it into print!!!

Well.....  I am quite excited. I guy emailed me last year that he was writing a book about muscle cars and was interested in photos of my GTO. So I emailed him quite a few photos, and then pretty much forgot about it, thinking it was either a joke, or I didnt make the cut. He emailed me tonight, and said my car made the book. So I ran out to Barnes and Noble and bought it..... I am pretty stoked... https://www.amazon.com/Detroit-Muscle-Factory-Lightweights-Purpose-Built/dp/1613253

Trying to solve No Start Issue

Figure I would do a current entry.... I have been dealing with a No Start, No Crank Issue at times with the car. Seems to happen after longer drives, obviously with everything getting heat soaked under hood.... I would go to leave a Cruise Night and I would get NOTHING...... when it happened last year 2-3 times, there was not even a click from the starter. I already had a Powermaster Mini Starter, but I bit the bullet and bought a new one, and sent the old one back to Powermaster to ha

Bye Bye Vinyl Roof

So yeah..... when I was searching for my GTO..... I wanted either White or Silver with a Black Vinyl roof..... and I was happy with the look..... But..... a few years before I painted the car, I went to the Atlantic City Car Auction and walked past a 67 GTO in the Convention Center that was a beautiful light blue and a painted white roof..... I had never actually seen a Two-Tone GTO, and upon further investigation found that you could order the cars like that, and the factory two-tone cars

Metal Repair Time

So as you can see by the pics, I had uncovered some issues that were covered by trim. Once removed and blasted, the ugly came out. Areas of rot - Bottom of both front fenders behind front wheels, Bottom of 1/4's behind rear wheels, Panel behind the rear window, and finally the rear sail panels on each side of the rear window. All common areas of trouble for this type of body style. Good thing is, all areas the aftermarket has addressed with prefabbed patch panels....... Except for the Sail Panel

GTO 2009 Paint Job - The Decision and Stripping

The year is 2009, and little did I know it, this was going to be a huge year for the GTO. I figured I would get a few estimates on painting the car, knowing full well, I probably would not be able to afford it. I had figured I would have to wait until I retire to paint it. But what the hell, let get a few estimates. What I found ..... Very few people like to paint/restore whole cars, other than true restoration shops. The few guys I squeezed a rough estimate out of said it would be aro
