  1. Past hour
  2. hah enjoy it that light is awesome. i can feel my stock prices rising
  3. Thanks all for the feedback and opinions. Ended up going with X300U. I'm sure the TLR would have worked fine but the price difference wasn't so much that it offset the feedback/thoughts here. To me at least.
  4. As someone who was born after the riots (only by a few years), it's hard to imagine violence/rioting of that scale happening today. Not sure if race relations are better or if the economy is better, but I hope rioting like that is a thing of the past.
  5. Today
  6. I have a 15-22, was the first rifle i purchased. Have not had any issues with mine in terms of reliability (other than ammo related, which is normal for .22lr). i have gone through 3 iterations of sights though.. First put a 3-9x scope on it (which now resides on my souped-up 10/22). Then went for a cheap-ass RDS from Amazon (Barksa, big mistake, couldnt even get it on paper before it ran out of adjustment) and now has a vortex strike fire (perfect). Also put some cheap poly BUIS on it because lets be honest, its a .22lr... Fun gun, was good to get me used to the AR platform before i got my first one. I dont shoot it as much now as I used to since i have AR's and a 10/22 tack driver.. but still nice to have.. It does function best with CCI AR Tactical ammo (the rounds were specifically tested with the 15-22, so its pretty much made for it) but it has shot regular mini mags and other HV ammo pretty flawlessly (a few hiccups along the way, but all ammo related - and very limited in scope) At $250 for excellent condition.. well.. thats a pretty good deal, especially if its already neutered
  7. I'm not disagreeing with you. But I guess my testimony means nothing. Rick, a lot of us do not beat our gear. We are not in the field. In most cases, I'd agree with you. But only on certain things. Flashlight not being one of them. For John Q Public, TLR is fine. They may only come in second place, but that is not a bad thing.
  8. I have had the TLR-3 attached to my VP9 for over 2+ years now. I have not had it NOT come on when i turn it on (other than when a battery dies, but that has only been once, and its because i was unnecessarily playing with it).. Fits comfortably on the VP9, doesnt extend out past the end. Plenty of light for inside the house (unless you live in a mansion, but for a standard home, its perfectly adequate IMO) Just my 2¢ One thing of note for the TLR-3.... Read the directions and follow them. Do not over-tighten or you WILL crack the housing. I initially forgot that i cracked my first housing, but it was 100% my fault for clearly over-tightening when the directions tell you not to. SInce then, been perfect.
  9. Reliability is a big part of value. If I buy one light at $250 that never fails, it's a better value than buying a $130 lights that only last a few months or a year and has to be replaced with another $130 or $250 light.
  10. Y'all have pics?

  13. On my pistol, duh.
  14. Where's your pistol bayonet?
  15. 1. If it comes to their attention the NJ AG might define a rail as a bayonet stud. 2. An AR/M16/M4 is a POS in bayonet fighting. I base this on my experience as winning the company competition with pugil sticks in basic training in 1967. I also broke two M14 stocks in basic one one a thrust and another with a butt stroke. I've always taken the position "why am I using a bayonet if I still have ammunition". I've always made sure I had ammunition. JMO
  16. 2C:39-3. Prohibited Weapons and Devices. e. Certain weapons. Any person who knowingly has in his possession any gravity knife, switchblade knife, dagger, dirk, stiletto, billy, blackjack, metal knuckle, sandclub, slingshot, cestus or similar leather band studded with metal filings or razor blades imbedded in wood, ballistic knife, without any explainable lawful purpose, is guilty of a crime of the fourth degree. so is there no explainable lawful purpose for any of these items?
  17. The manufacturer calls it a knife in their ad. As far a legality goes: 2C:39-1 h. "Gravity knife" means any knife which has ablade which is released from the handle or sheath thereofby the force of gravity or the application of centrifugalforce... p. "Switchblade knife" means any knife or similardevice which has blade which opens automatically by handpressure applied to a button, spring or other device inthe handle of the knife... u. "Ballistic knife" means anyweapon or other device capable of lethal use and which canpropel a knife blade. You can be the test case if you want.
  18. you could argue that its not a knife, also are you trying to say automatic knives are illegal in nj? cause their not.
  19. How about the fact that it is an automatic knife? " In stand alone configuration the instrument could be deployed as an automatic knife for hunting or in many other capacities"
  20. Mentioning that, I will add that I don't have to run Aimpoints on everything, or never have ran cheaper optics... I still run an old BSA red dot on my Beretta CX4 because it cowitnesses the stock sights. My main 5.56mm AR, which runs my first Aimpoint PRO, had a Bushnell red dot (looked like an ACOG, no magnification, but had three dots on top in case the sight went dead). I have the PROs on that AR and my Tavor, being those likely will have heavier use over my .45 AR (at least until I can get 20 rounders for it). The PROs have those rubber bumpers on it, so while I could care less how scratched up it gets from use, if it hits a hard object, there is some cushion... even though I know it would be able to handle it. And besides, if that .45 AR does get 20 rounders in it, it will be a home defense gun... and I tend to have AA batteries around the house (good choice for the Comp M4s). Scopes, I'm probably worse off. My .22 AR upper has a Bushnell 3-9x, my 10/22 Takedown has a Barska 4x, and my Marlin Model 60 has the cheapest Tasco 4x scope from the 1990s (if I remember correctly, my dad got the package from K-Mart). My hunting shotguns/rifles tend to have vintage Burris or Weaver scopes... ones that were made before the cheapening of quality among most companies. Very happy with them, as I'm not messing with the knobs in those roles (zero and know the trajectory). Have a few period correct scopes; correct Ordinance Optics scope for my Oswald Carcano replica, PU scope for my Mosin Nagant, POSP for my WASR, and a Leatherwood 8x scope for my M1903 USMC sniper replica. My 18" FDE AR has a Weaver KASPA 1.5-6x, which I feel is a good enough optic for what I intend to use the rifle for... but with the exception of the Leatherwood scope, which was $1,000 furnished and installed (included modifying the handguard and bolt), the Leupold Mk4 4.5-14x scope on my Remington Model Seven is the most investment into optics I've done... as I want to take that rifle out to 500+ yards.
  21. 50 years ago on a hot, humid summer night just like tonight. My ex-FIL was National Guard deployed to put down the riots. He said it was scarier than his tour in Vietnam although the old man has been known to exaggerate. Ecclesiastes 3:15: What is happening now has happened before, and what will happen in the future has happened before, because God makes the same things happen over and over again. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_Newark_riots The 1967 Newark riots were a major civil disturbance that occurred in the city of Newark, New Jersey between July 12 and July 17, 1967. The four days of rioting, looting, and destruction left 26 dead and hundreds injured. Deaths: 26 Injuries: 727 Arrested: 1,500 By the sixth day, riots, looting, violence, and destruction ultimately left a total of 16 civilians, 8 suspects, a police officer, and a firefighter dead; 353 civilians, 214 suspects, 67 police officers, 55 firefighters, and 38 military personnel injured; and 689 civilians and 811 suspects arrested. Property damage exceeded $10 million. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_Plainfield_riots The Plainfield riots were a series of racially charged violent disturbances that occurred in Plainfield, New Jersey during the summer of 1967, which mirrored the 1967 Newark riots in nearby Newark, New Jersey. Middlesex Arms Theft That same night in nearby Middlesex an arms factory was broken into and 46 automatic weapons were stolen. The Plainfield Machine Company was a small manufacturing company owned by William Haas and William Stork that, among other things, produced M1 carbines for the civilian market. The stolen guns were passed out to the men on the streets of Plainfield that very night. The police were anxious because of the large number of guns now on the streets and the Plainfield Fire Department Station was under constant gunfire for five hours. The bullet holes in the brick facade of the building remain to this day. Finally, New Jersey National Guardsmen, in armored personnel carriers relieved the station. Police tried to arrange a truce and have residents turn in the stolen carbines. Black residents felt that having the guns in the community kept the police at bay and that they now had power over the police. When none of the stolen firearms were returned, the area was cordoned off and 300 heavily armed New Jersey State Police and National Guardsmen started a house-to-house search for the stolen weapons. After about an hour and a half, with 66 homes searched, the operation was called off. The police felt that since Governor Hughes had declared a State of Emergency, no search warrants were needed. Officer John Gleason, Death by Shopping Cart Later that evening a white police officer, John Gleason, was manning a checkpoint. Members of the Pagan motorcycle gang entered the area and a confrontation between a large group of young black men and the white members of the Pagan motorcycle gang was brewing. Police Officer John Gleason placed himself between the two groups and the Pagan motorcycle gang left. The remaining crowd refused to disperse and Officer Gleason became surrounded by the crowd which began to threaten him and close in on him. Officer Gleason was in fear of his life and eventually fired a shot at a young man and wounded him. When the officer tried to leave the area to get help, he was overtaken by a mob and was beaten with a steel grocery store cart, stomped and eventually brutally shot and killed with his own service revolver.

  23. John, talk to him - you'll have more clout - you're an NRA life member, right? His contact info is above.
  24. You my friend are worth way more then my praise. Good on ya bro!
  25. I hope so but I mentioned this in another thread. Tell him to, spend some of their huge defense fund, get the full brunt of their forces out here and fill a giant stadium. They won't need any of our help. The huge crowds would do the rest and bring attention to the masses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
