    OK..... Everyone needs to chill out. And what I mean by that is how we interact with each-other on this board. Yes.... this week SUCKED for us as far as our rights.... The fight is not over... There are already many new members looking for guidance on these new laws. Be nice.... Be Patient, they could be your next range partner... There are many current members that are confused on these new laws. We need to work together to discuss the definition of what these laws are, and what our future holds, and how we can help fight them. But attacking and being rude to each other because the other person might have a different take on the issue will get us no where. So EVERYONE needs to relax and start being nice to their 2A neighbor ...... if we cannot stick together, we have zero chance to do anything positive. Don't make me and my mod staff have to move and moderate threads on this stuff.....

    If I had access to his info, I would have done the guy a solid and called him directly to come back to get his piece and let him know its not kosher to conceal carry or transport a firearm in that manner in the PRNJ.

    Make sure you read to the end, it's a good ending.... A few weeks back, I was driving to work and caught this one at about 6:15am: I sent a link to this video to the email that Riverdale police have on their website, then I left for vacation. When I returned, this was on my phone(I clipped his name off the front of the audio clip): As I was digging through my emails, catching up, I had this in my inbox:(I deleted her name) ---------------------------- <WITHHELD> <*************@yahoo.com> Sun 5/20/2018 12:13 PM To: *******, Mark; You forwarded this message on 5/21/2018 7:20 AM. Dear Mr. ******* My name is **** ****** and I would like to thank you for sending in the video to the Riverdale PD of the accident that happened on Route 23. I believe in guardian angels and you were mine on that day. I would like you to know that you saved me a lot of money because your video showed the officer that I was not at fault. Thank you so much for taking the time to send this in even though it wasn't something you were obligated to do. Again thank you very much. Sincerely **** ******

    I thought this was a pretty good article about Memorial Day and what it was vs what it has become. Personally, I find it distasteful when people say “Happy Memorial Day”. You may have fun spending time with family and remembering comrades but it’s certainly not a “happy” holiday. That being said, I’m sure if those we have lost we’re here, they would be enjoying themselves on this holiday. And if they knew we we moping around over our lost loved ones selfishly remembering what we lost, instead of selflessly remembering who they were in stories and memories, they’d be laughing at us and think us fools. The key to Memorial Day, to me, is to remember WHY you're out there having all that fun. Remember loved ones lost and revel in their honor. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2018/05/25/the_democratic_holiday_137097.html The Democratic Holiday COMMENTARY By Robert R. Garnett May 25, 2018 Chiefly observed as summer’s kickoff, a weekend of auto racing, shopping, American flags, and grilling out – Memorial Day was originally dedicated to solemn remembrance of the nation’s war dead. That’s still the holiday’s nominal purpose. It honors all kinds – well-to-do and hardscrabble, bright and dim, genteel and loutish. The only requirement, but a stern one, is dying in defense of the homeland. The discovery of the sunken wreckage of World War II casualty USS Juneau two months ago, far below the blue swells of the Coral Sea, offers poignant testimony to the rich democracy of Memorial Day. Best known of the light cruiser’s crew were the five Sullivan brothers of Waterloo, Iowa. A little rough, sometimes rowdy, they were seldom in serious trouble back home, but seldom up to much good, either. None graduated from high school, only one advancing past ninth grade. Father Piontkowski at St. Mary’s saw less of them than the Tic Toc Tap on Sycamore Street, near the town’s big meatpacking plant where all five at one time or another held low-level jobs. For those lacking skills and schooling, jobs were scarce in the 1930s. The two oldest Sullivans, George and Frank, served four-year hitches in the Navy. The middle brother, Joe (known as “Red”), worked at Schultz’s Sunoco for a time, learned how to change a spark plug, developed a passion for motorcycles, joined the Black Hawks motorcycle club, hung out at the Tic Toc, bought a Harley, and roared about town and country. His Black Hawk nickname was “Crash.” His brothers, too, became Black Hawks. Then came Pearl Harbor. All five promptly enlisted in the Navy, George and Frank for a second time. “I have four brothers and 2 buddies from my Motorcycle club,” George petitioned the Navy Department. “Otherwise, anyone of our brothers which there are five of us and our 2 buddies would like to stick together.” Honoring this request, the Navy assigned the five brothers to newly commissioned Juneau. More typical of the ship’s crew, perhaps, was 18-year-old William Meeker of Harrison, N.J. Just out of high school, Meeker was working at the local A&P when Pearl Harbor was attacked. He enlisted the next day. Soon he began writing to a neighbor back home, a girl he scarcely knew – Winnie. Meeker enjoyed Navy life. “Well,” he wrote Winnie from somewhere at sea in July 1942, “the fella next to me is writing to his girl back in Kearny [adjoining Harrison]. In fact quite a few fellas are writing home to their sweethearts. We’re all in the mess hall. Some are reading books for pleasure and some studying seamanship. Others just sitting and talking ... One fella playing solitaire and some of the other fellas just sitting daydreaming ... An evening on board. Kinda pleasant don’t you think?” While the Sullivans swapped motorcycle yarns on the mess decks, the sentimental Meeker worried about his mom and dad. He had a request for Winnie: Would she visit his parents? “I pray for them,” he added. Those feelings were reciprocated. When after four months the mail finally caught up with Juneau, he’d received 23 letters from his mother. Winnie had written, too, enclosing her photo, as requested. All Meeker’s longings began to center on the girl down the street, the one he hardly knew. He fancied them almost married, dreamed of a life together, of relaxing with “a pair of soft slippers, a nice big soft chair, and you,” adding: “I wonder if it will ever come true.” In early November, Juneau weighed anchor in New Caledonia, in the South Pacific, and set course for Guadalcanal. A few days later, past midnight, a dozen outgunned American ships, including Juneau,intercepted a Japanese armada approaching the island to bombard its critical airfield and the beleaguered U.S. Marines garrisoned there. With two dozen ships intermingled in the darkness, maneuvering blindly and exchanging salvos at close range – “a barroom brawl with the lights out,” one survivor described it – four American ships were sunk; a fifth was scuttled in the morning. Hundreds died, including two admirals. Badly damaged, Juneau survived the night only to be fatally torpedoed next morning, sinking in minutes. The earthy Sullivans, the romantic Meeker, and all but a handful of their 700 shipmates would perish – Annapolis grads and roughnecks; captain and humblest boot. Before the cruiser had sailed for the Pacific, Meeker had managed briefly to visit home – and Winnie. “If I were a little more impulsive I would have kissed you believe me I wanted to,” he lamented afterwards. The missed opportunity haunted him. Three months later, “I still can’t figure out why I didn’t obey my impulse to kiss you that day I was at your home,’” he wrote. “There won’t be any hesitation the next time.” The next time. How many young Americans in uniform have carried that wistful prospect to a grave far from home? For the Winnies they relinquished, for the never-realized homecomings and unlived summer days – all honor to them on this dawn-of-summer weekend, and as poet Thomas Gray put it, “the passing tribute of a sigh.” Robert Garnett is a professor of English literature at Gettysburg College.

    I went to a gun auction yesterday at Brown Bothers Auction House in Buckingham, PA. This was my second one there and the second time I came away happy - yesterday was more ecstatic, rather than happy. My father bought a Winchester Model 71 in 1956 from a PA state trooper. I always loved that gun and in the late 80's when Browning reissued 71's made by Miroku in Japan, I headed right to my LGS and put my name on the wait list. Money was tight then, but I knew I'd find a way. My folks were visiting for Thanksgiving that year and I told my dad what I'd done. He showed little reaction, but he was never a very demonstrative type guy. Imagine my surprise when at Christmas time, he presented me with his model 71, saying that now I wouldn't have to spend all that money. Probably one of the fondest memories I have of my dad. I should interject here that his 71 wasn't just any old 71, this was a Model 71 Deluxe with a three-digit serial number. I know that there is at least one person on the forum that also has a 71, but for the uninformed, the 71 is the finest lever-action rifle ever made. It was derived from the Model 1886 and was meant to be a gun that was capable of taking any North American game. It was chambered in a new cartridge, the .348 Winchester the mission of which was to replace numerous other cartridges used in Winchester's lever guns back into the black powder era, and to have ballistics comparable to the .30-06. It was/is the only production gun ever chambered in .348. So I was overjoyed to find a Model 71 in the auction listings. This was one of the Miroku 71's but it wasn't until I looked at the picture with the listing that I realized this was a Model 71 High Grade and it was ANIB. These had a silver engraved receiver with some gold inlay and used AAA walnut for the stock. Given the rest of the goods up for auction (a lot of milsurp - but a smattering of everything) I hoped that the crowd would not be the type to go for the embellished Winchester, and that I could "steal it". Though being an auction, it only takes one person that wants it as bad as you to derail your plans. I set a limit for myself and the bidding started. One other guy. We went back & forth in $50 increments. We got to my limit, but I sensed he was slowing (must have been his limit too), so pushed on. I went to $100 over my limit and he raised it by $50 at which time I bowed out. The auctioneer cajoled me, saying how much I'd regret it if I didn't bid one more time - and he was right. I bit the bullet (figuratively, of course) and bid one last time - $200 over my limit. But my opponent stayed silent and I won the gun. I didn't "steal" it but I did get it for $300 to $600 under market, so I was happy. There were some deals to be had there - a 6" Python from 1976 went for $2K. Another gun, on which I had intended to bid, but didn't after I went over limit, went for a bargain $375 - it was an NRA Centennial Winchester Model 94 Musket (I have the rifle). I also bid on a Model 12-2 S&W, 2" barrel round butt (impossible to find), but dropped out when it went too high. At any rate, here are some pics... Butt stock... Original 71 Deluxe and the "new" 71 High Grade (they are the same size - it's just the perspective)... Thanks for reading. Adios, Pizza Bob

    There's a lot of frustration going around. We constantly mock liberals for eating their own when the chips are down, so why would we follow their poor example? We need to promote cooperation now more than ever. There are a lot of things going on in the fight for 2A and now is not the time to chase off potential supporters. Together we stand, divided we fall.

    We've been working on a cost-effective and efficient process to jailbreak our limited-capacity magazines and it looks like we've got it mostly-figured out. We're confident enough in the process to start working on inventory from our dealers. We're going to use those mags to refine the process and assuming we don't encounter any showstoppers, we'll be offering a service to all who are interested in having their magazines altered further. As of now, our process destroys at least one part of the magazine, sometimes two, and on the odd occasion during testing, the entire magazine. Additionally, our process is currently limited to the following host magazines: 30rd M2, 20rd M3, 30rd M3. At this time, we do NOT have a clear path to altering AK47 or .308 PMAGs without resorting to the use of Ranger Plates (which will drive costs higher). Speaking of cost, we are targeting the cost per magazine to be substantially less than buying new. Please be patient with us as we work through the process as we've never had to do something like this before on such a scale. I know the clock is ticking on the 180 day grace period and our first large batches of inventory coming back from dealers shows up early next week.

    Imagine if Missouri had a law that it was a felony to have a red pen in your left pants pocket and having a red pen in your left pants pocket was an automatic 3-1/2 to 10 years in prison. Would you research pen carrying laws before visiting Missouri? I wouldn't think to do so. It's too silly to think that carrying a pen would be illegal. NJ's laws are that silly to the rest of the country. They don't fail to learn our laws as much as they just never imagine that such ridiculous laws could even exist.

    i'd strongly suggest everyone thinking of selling their mags or butchering them to not do so. this bill is as unconstitutional as they come and will be tossed by any court in the country, including liberal ones. i haven't said much because i actually doubted it would pass. clearly our esteemed legislature are not versed on the constitution. ex post facto laws are specifically prohibited, by name, under article 1 section 10 of our trusty document. ex post facto laws are those which make illegal an act which was legal when committed. if you bought 15 round mags legally, they cannot suddenly become illegal. period. done. end of story. (as an aside, bump stock bans will fall as well). not only is murphy a moron, but he's a greedy moron as well. had he allowed simple grandfathering (like the other states have), it would have been harder to challenge. not impossible mind you, just harder. as it stands, this jackass is going to make the taxpayers pay for something that has no chance of standing. if you have 15rd mags in nj, you'll keep 15 rd mags in nj. take it to the bank. the california ban was supposed to have been in effect as of jan 1. the judge in the most liberal court in the country had to stop it for the same reason the real question for me is where did this attorney general get his law degree? he should be disbarred for giving consent to murphy to sign the bill

    From The Patriot Post on 6/6/18: OPINION IN BRIEF Walter Williams: "Having enjoyed my 82nd birthday, I am part of a group of about 50 million Americans who are 65 years of age or older. Those who are 90 or older were in school during the 1930s. My age cohort was in school during the 1940s. Baby boomers approaching their 70s were in school during the 1950s and early '60s. Try this question to any one of those 50 million Americans who are 65 or older: Do you recall any discussions about the need to hire armed guards to protect students and teachers against school shootings? Do you remember school policemen patrolling the hallways? How many students were shot to death during the time you were in school? For me and those other Americans 65 or older, when we were in school, a conversation about hiring armed guards and having police patrol hallways would have been seen as lunacy. There was no reason. What's the difference between yesteryear and today? The logic of the argument for those calling for stricter gun control laws, in the wake of recent school shootings, is that something has happened to guns. Guns have behaved more poorly and become evil. Guns themselves are the problem. The job for those of us who are 65 or older is to relay the fact that guns were more available and less controlled in years past, when there was far less mayhem. Something else is the problem. Guns haven't changed. People have changed. Behavior that is accepted from today's young people was not accepted yesteryear." How very true!

    Unless he is a prohibited person, it is nothing like a straw purchase. Jesus, some of you are like a bunch of old farts. You give the kid a hard time because he hasn’t posted much range and shooting type stuff. You told him he’s a new shooter and he should post some questions to get the most from this forum. So, he posts range stuff and you jump all over him, pick him apart on what you think are technicalities. Red or Blue, Baby Boomer, Gen X, or Millennial - it doesn’t fucking matter. He’s a fellow gun owner for Christ’s sake, and a new one at that. Like it or not, that makes him one of us. Knock it off for fuck’s sake. This is a perfect opportunity to mentor a young shooter, but some of you are out for blood so bad you are going to miss the opportunity because you are acting like a bunch of liberal douchebags. We’re supposed to be better than that. Shame on some of you. Eat our own indeed.

    Made my NJ escape and we arrived at our rental home around 4pm Sunday. Unpacked the cars and went to the local market for food. We got into the car to leave the market at 6:48pm when I felt a bang as the woman across the parking aisle slams into the rear of my car. Unlike NJ where she would have blamed me and called an ambulance claiming an injury she 100% admitted fault and was so upset. We kept telling her to relax it was just property damage and no one was hurt and she had not hit a person. My wife called police who showed up to take report in less than 10 minutes. Agreed she was at fault and wrote her $160 ticket for improper backing with three points. But she can take a two hour online course and wipe the points. Her insurance will ultimately pay for everything, but the repair place my insurance company suggests using which is huge here can’t do repairs for a month, oh well. Guess I’ll be driving an ugly car for a while. Met my new neighbor who is retired marine and real gun guy. Said I will have to come see his gun room. He was packing a G26 appendix carry in his shorts. He is also a firearms instructor part time and looking to build two ranges on land he owns. He can use some extra cash to get started so we are going to talk, maybe I’ll get into the range business. He shoots IDPA and loves both of my plates. Said he was going to take a picture, which he must have done while I was out. As I got home an old NJ friend who lives about 25 minutes away said I am the talk of the internet as everyone is talking about the new guy from NJ and his gun plates. I will like it here, except for the drivers.

    Given the very challenging times we are experiencing especially here in NJ, I am taking the liberty of reposting something here that I had posted in the 1st Amendment section three years ago. The broader membership, including the many new forum members that have joined since that time, might benefit from reading it. It as relevant today, if not even more, than it was then. In the many recent threads on the new laws just passed, there is lots of discussion about what the government can or cannot due, might or might not due, or could do if they had the will, etc. I feel it is important to be reminded of history and what ACTUALLY HAPPENED as a point of fact. As has often been said, if we ignore history we are destined to repeat it. My post was as follows: Recently finished reading “Gun Control in the Third Reich-Disarming the Jews and Enemies of the State” by Stephen P. Halbrook. I strongly urge anyone who values our freedoms to read it. Despite the title, it actually covers the period from the birth of the Weimar Republic in 1918 thru the Nazi regime in 1938 and the “Night of Broken Glass”. For me, what is most striking about this book are the parallels between what took place then, and the gun rights challenges we face in the present times. To name a few examples taken directly from various sections of the book: • Vague firearms laws that were harshly enforced • Decree(s) requiring the surrender of all firearms and ammunition else punishment of X years in prison • During the timeline covered by the book; possession of a firearm or ammunition was also punishable by being arrested, shot on the spot, or being sent to concentration camps. • Entire populations being designated as “undesirable” or “unreliable” and banned from possession of firearms. This included not only the Jews but also anyone labeled, for example, as a gypsy or a communist. • Forced Registration. Before Hitler came to power, the government assured that these records would be protected and remain private. Guess what. Subsequently the Nazi’s later took control of these records and used them to further confiscate and persecute gun owners. • Mass confiscations • Needing to convince the local authorities of your need for a firearm and obtain their approval (sound familiar?) • Manufacture and importation of arms severely limited. • Preventing sporting clubs from providing instruction or training to their members. Later, such clubs and associations were banned and/or taken over by the government. • Massive police raids, house to house searches, and confiscation of “military” weapons from civilians. • Need for a license to acquire a firearm or ammunition whether the transaction is commercial or private. • Trade in firearms prohibited at annual fairs, shooting competitions,and other events. • Government officials and police exempted from most of these onerous laws. And so on. As has often been said; “History Repeats Itself”. This is more than reason enough for us to remain ever vigilant to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights.

    I think instead of worrying if they suspect if you have a 15 rounder hidden in the bottom of your sock and underwear drawer we should worry about the other bills like the extreme risk protection order act of 2018. The one where your crazy ex-girlfriend can file petition to have your guns and gun rights removed without due process.

Wouldn't it be WONDERFUL, after all the abuse NJ's legal gun owners have taken, if a NJ 2A case made it all the way to a favorable SCOTUS? Dare to dream.

    First things first. We need a new forum area called: NJ and Less I am so pist about politics in general but even more pist that our Rhino Republican, lying conservatives have done squat. So, in lieu of some posts on other areas combined into the political threads are the talks of leaving this effing state. So please stay on topic, no politics, no arguing and follow my lead starting with this sentence. (Consider it helping each other with an exit strategy)... I have a guideline. I’m not just looking for any old state that isn’t NJ. Here are my criteria’s, not in any particular order. 1) Is it 2A friendly. Guns and Ammo put out a list every year depicting a rating system based on that years trends. Here is the link: http://www.gunsandammo.com/second-amendment/best-states-for-gun-owners-2017/ 2) Amenities. We have to move where there is high speed internet. We can move anywhere in the country but wife will work from home and her company requires it. 3) At least an acre of land. I don’t want neighbors any closer than an acre. I’m not moving just to have neighbors close enough to hear me fart. 4) No HOA. If I want to hang a flag or paint my house purple, I want the freedom to do so. 5) At least 3 Bedrooms and 2 Baths. I can eliminate a bedroom and just put high speed internet in the bathroom beings she lives in it anyway. [emoji6] 6) Look at the towns crime stats. There are 2 decent ones via google. Area Vibes and Neighborhood Scout. I’m not sure they are perfectly accurate but if stats of the town is a 1 or an F, you don’t want it. The weird thing is my town comes in at a 34 which is kind of low because we don’t have much going on around here regarding crime. It might take a hit in points because we are next to the Paterson crap hole. 7) Watch for flood zones. Bring up a Fema flood plan of the town you are looking into. 8) How old are you? I don’t want to know but its a point. If you are handicapped or just a broken bastard like me, you don’t want to be trying to take care of acres of land plus your home. Which brings me to age vs injuries vs style of home. My knees are shot. I’m not getting any younger, so I prefer a ranch style home over the colonial I’m currently in now. That’s pretty much it for me. I have started a spreadsheet of criteria. It contains most of the criteria above. Right now we are concentrating on Tennessee. Anywhere east of Nashville. You can buy a new home for $230k or less. I say east of Nashville because we want no part of Tornado Alley. If you are very serious in moving, you need to stay motivated. If you don’t, you’ll never leave. Keep a binder with all your data and interests. Use it to keep going forward. Add and update as necessary. Keep it handy like on the coffee table so it stares at you. BTW, use Zillow. Much better than Realtor.com or Trulia.They also have an app that is fantastic. Make sure you sign up for free account. Also, put your current home in, claim it and edit its info to correct any missing data. They will also email you trends of your homes worth. Good luck!

    Well I have been thinking of getting out of here for years. Toward the end of January my wife finally said ok to the idea. The next Tuesday when she got home from work she found me talking with a realtor. Took about six weeks to do about two years worth of work to get the house ready to sell. Closing is June 15th, and the drive out of the socialist people's republic of New Jermany Starts Saturday. Heading west on I78 to I81 and on to Northern FL. Going to St Johns county which is a suburb of Jacksonville. Far enough north that you actually have seasons and of the 67 counties they have the number one schools. Not that we need schools, but it makes for a better area. We have rented a four bedroom three bath house with a fenced yard and pool - very few around that meet those requirements. We will then look around and figure out what we want for a permanent home. There are lots of new developments with nice houses, although not cheap, but you run into the HOA crap. We may end up buying some land and building ourselves to avoid the HOA and have more land than the zero lot sizes they are building these days. Got a 16' POD almost full already and in a couple of days the second 7' one is coming for the rest of the stuff. Can't wait to leave this shit hole state. Oh BTW what I am saving on property and income taxes fully pays the rent on the house down there.

    I think he still may. NRA dumped a ton of cash into him based on it. He's waiting for the right time. You cannot expect something like this to go through or even mentioned during a mass shooting,. It would just not look right. Everything needs to calm down. He has been fulfilling promises. He's hell bent making sure things are done as promised.

    Am I the only one who's had about enough of Evan Nappen? I've heard him speak before, and I have one of his books. But I started to question his opinions when he made the statement that a loaded magazine can somehow be construed as being a loaded gun. Hard to believe; and when asked to provide an example of where this has actually happened? Crickets.... Now he's found some means under NJ law where it can be construed that NJ will try and extradite you BACK to NJ if you don't tell them you've moved out of state and fail to -not cancel- but *change your address* on your NJ FID card! Uh huh....Pennsylvania's going to send you back to NJ because you didn't tell them where to forward your mail, now that you've left the state? Who's ever heard of this one before? Personally, I think its tied to his gun law seminars. I'm told they are interesting/entertaining; but they're also used to hawk for "US Law Shield"; a $10.95 a month 'legal service' that provides some sort of gun law 'coverage'...searching the internet, its hard to tell what they really cover, and the reviews for its services are somewhat mixed. I guess its for when NJ tries to haul you back after you've finally left the people's democratic republic of NJ for free america...

    If I only had one handgun? Going to give you the standard Griz answer. You can do just about anything with a 4" 357 magnum. Some details: Ammo- there's a wide range of power loadings avaliable OTC. From target wadcutters, std 38s, +P, +P+, to full magnums. With a semi auto you pretty much have to start with std loads as they are needed to have the gun function. A std 124 gr 9mm at 1100 fps gives you 333 ft/lbs of energy. A 125 gr 357 at 1400 fps gives you 543 ft/lbs of energy. You can pretty much get the power of a 9mm in a 38 +P. You can work up thru the power levels with a 357 until you can handle full magnums. Size- a 4" 357 is big enough to shoot well. It's not that hard to conceal. DO NOT BUY A J FRAME 357!!! AFAIC J frame 357s are there just to show they can be made. Not fun to shoot. Get at least a K frame size gun or better yet a L or N frame size gun. The Ruger GP100 is a fine revolver and usually a bit less expensive than a comparable S&W L frame. Flame suit ready...I like Taurus revolvers. More on that later. Reliability- semiautomatics have come light years in this category over the past 30 years or so. I've been a firearms instructor for over 40 years. Yes a revolver can have malfunctions. Over the 1000s of guns I've seen firing and millions of rounds I've seen more with semiautomatics malfunction. Over the past 25 years or so most of those malfunctions with semis are ammo and magazine related. Revolvers are not ammo sensitive and as long as the bullet gets out of the barrel that's all the power needed. I've seen 357s go 20,000 rds in trials with zero malfunctions. My 30 year old Taurus 669 lost the rear sight because the screw came loose after over 10,000 rds of full magnums. That's my fault not the gun's. The gun would still shoot. Taurus replaced it free with a 2 week turnaround. Other than that zero problems. I'll say something against what most people suggest. YOU DON'T NEED AN ACTION JOB AND LIGHTER SPRINGS ON A REVOLVER. If you decide to shoot USPSA or something like that those things help. You'll also only use that revolver for games. Smooth is most important than light. A DA revolver is harder to learn how to shoot vs a striker fired or SA auto. However if you learn to shoot a DA revolver well everything else is easy. S&W and Ruger comes with a pretty smooth trigger from the factory. Taurus not as smooth but will improve with use. Easiest way to smooth up a DA revolver is to dry fire a couple of thousand times. It will also build up the muscles in your hand and fingers so that "long, heavy DA pull" so many complain about isn't so long and heavy. If you're willing to come down to Ocean County I'll host you at my range and help you decide what you want. PM me.

    This happened to my wife’s car once. Right after I took out a big life insurance policy on her.

    Ouch! I don't think that's fair. I get it... you LOVE Facebook! But, many of us don't. I don't like the format. I don't like the "look at me" self-absorbed nature of it. And I really don't like the political machinations of it's creator and CEO, Zuckerberg. (I generate a good part of my income creating exec LinkedIn profiles - so it's not like I'm anti-social media either). I've reviewed several gun-related Facebook pages --- and I find them to be no more interesting or relevant than some of the gun-oriented news sites like The Truth About Guns, NRA-ILA, Bearing Arms, or some of the political websites that overlap into 2A issues. And if it's a local issue of some importance that's specific to NJ - I'll pick it up here, because either you will come on and post it (and thank you for that cross-posting service)... or I'll get it through an email blast from ANJRPC (which is a free service if people don't realize that). But, I think you need to accept that some of us just don't dig Facebook for a range of reasons... and that's probably not going to change. That's why most big companies/organizations do "fully integrated" marketing plans that operate on multiple platforms (Facebook, Twitter, email blasts, press releases on their website, etc.) - because they know that some people will naturally gravitate more to one format than another - it is what it is.

    Ammo is freaking expensive. As such, I try to avoid “ballistic masturbation” as much as possible. That being said, I bring enough ammo to accomplish my shooting objective for that session/day/class. Sometimes that is a specific goal. Usually that goal is self improvement: • Work on improving 25 yard accuracy • Work on manipulations • Work on malfunction reductions • Work on split times or multiple targets • Work on the skills required to pass a specific qualification or test, etc... Sometimes the goal is to coach others: • Turning a new person onto the shooting sports • Working with an experienced shooter to improve - @Mrs. Peel and I worked on shooting cadence and rhythm drills last week Sometimes the goal is just to have fun - like the shotgun meet ups where your just having fun and blasting clays and shooting .22. A lot of times, it’s a some combo of the above. In my opinion, ultimately, you should practice to be better tomorrow than you were yesterday. Without that mindset you are simply turning money into noise - which is OK sometimes, but if that’s the norm it puts quite a strain on your training budget with no personal improvement to show for it. I try to have a plan for what I want to work on before each range trip. Then I go to my training book (when I take a course from another instructor, or find a drill I like I record it in a book and keep a copy with my range stuff) and I find drills that will help me work on that skill set. Then I bring enough ammo to cover my drills plus a little bit more. For a typical 1 hour indoor pistol range session, I grab 2 or 3 drills plus a warm up/cool down (I currently really like the Consistency Drill from Aaron Baruga to start and end my range sessions) and around ~ 200 rounds. That’s ~ 150 rounds for the brought drills, plus ~50 for unplanned events, ie: buddy wants to try my gun, or I am having malfunctions and need to trouble shoot, or my practice on one skill uncovers a deficiency with somethng else and I need to work it. If I don’t need those extra 50 rounds, I try not to shoot them. If I’m bringing a new shooter I double whatever I’m bringing to cover them. If I am shooting longer than an hour, or if I am working on multiple guns, I plan accordingly but in the same manner. If I am taking a course, I bring 50% over what the started course requirements are. Also, keep in mind that there is a point of diminishing returns when practicing or training. You shouldn’t end a typical range session exhausted and shooting like shit. You want to end just past your peak performance. If you continue too far past that point, you are only practice bad technique and sloppy shooting. How you perform at the end will replace any good reps you did earlier and actually degrade what you worked on. Don’t end your session being pissed at your poor performance and feeling down. End on a high note - shooting well and feeing good. Train for success - and remember: Practice does not make perfect. Practice makes permanent. Only proper practice of perfection makes perfect.

    Cleaning guns is dumb and I hate it but I’m not paying someone else to touch them.
