    Its more of a company policy. If a person has no FID "most" stores including myself will not hand them a firearm. There are multiple reasons for this.... If a person with an FID wants brings another person in IE Son, Daughter Wife etc etc we have no issues allowing them to handle the firearm if the person holding the FID asks. Its common for a dad or mom to bring a kid in to see if a firearm is comfortable for them.

    Once again Mrs. Peel nails it perfectly. Someone brought Kobe up to me yesterday, I gave him a blank stare. He says, "I guess you don't follow the news?"; I reply "No, I do, I know he died and who he is, I just don't see how it impacts my life. Did you know him? If so, my condolences." The volunteer firefighter that gets out of bed at 2am answering the call for aid and going into horrific conditions deserves the respect and adoration celebrities are given, not the other way around. That is just one example, I'm not intentionally leaving out the scores of other groups of people that are much more valuable in a real way to society. I have seen Kobe was active in charities, and it is likely there will be a loss felt in that regard. I just don't understand the rest.

    Rio Grande had some cones up but nothing that I would consider a closure. Arrived around 9am, spoke to a very friendly Sgt. at the scene and he told me they just over 6,000 people in line at 6am so we had no chance of getting inside the venue. Everyone was friendly, saw no protesters ,Antifa, ect. - LE was very friendly all around and it was a bit chilly being overcast and right on the water........

    OK fair enough, so let's take that a step further. Having printed books and print-outs in a box, ready for review in a emergency is a GREAT idea, but when that time happens, do you want to be digging around in a box, in the dark, trying to figure out what to do? So, here is PRE Plan A: In reality, everyone needs to read those books/print-outs NOW, and make a plan and prepare on what they are going to do. Pulling them out, after the fact, might be difficult playing catchup. Here's an exercise to do RIGHT NOW. Go to your electrical panel box, turn off the main breaker, and live that way for a WEEK. You'll quickly learn where the holes are in your plan. Only then, will you truly know, and can backfill where necessary. Then go back and read the books/print-outs to see what you're missing. True, but I operate on the one is none, two is one, and three is bare minimum where you want to be. I also believe in the Boy Scout motto; "Be Prepared". Both my sons are Eagle Scouts, so there's a mindset that's been a staple in our family. Knowing what to do BEFORE the incident happens is 9/10 of the game. I've actually wargamed and have done trial runs. Going through Hurricane Sandy without power for an extended period helped close some gaps. I believe in trials and testing, before the stress of the event gets here. I think trying to read, learn, adjust and handle daily survival DURING the incident can really test your nerves. But, maybe that's the engineer in me talking... I like to catch little problems before they become BIGGER problems..

    Oh, come'on, guys! Has AVB touted actual friends who work in the media... like, ever? As far as I recall, he hasn't. I agree with his general point that the coverage of celebrities by the press is over-the-top. I mean, how else could one possibly explain the popularity of the vapid Kardashian clan? My attitude is: why does anyone care about famous people whose lives don't impact them? People have always placed too much emphasis on celebrities, whether it be sports figures, Hollywood stars, musicians, etc. But, it's not relegated to a liberal media or even to the U.S. media. You should see the way they cover Bollywood stars in India... or the obsession in the London press ever since Prince Harry got engaged (later married) to Meghan Markle. Celebrity gossip is a human, global phenomena --- I just happen to think it's damn silly. In this case, it was also tasteless, because it took so long to even cover the OTHER people on the flight - making it seem like their deaths didn't even matter. Poorly handled. Too funny! I was actually logging on to post about exactly this situation. For those too busy to google, Felicia is a political reporter for the Washington Post (and apparently a survivor of a sexual attack at one point in her past). After Kobe's death, with the fawning coverage, she sent out a tweet that linked to coverage about Kobe's own very mixed past (as you probably recall, accused of a sexual assault, Kobe first said it was consensual, then settled out of court along with a public apology for his actions that day, saying he could understand how she could have seen his actions differently than he did). “Any public figure is worth remembering in their totality,” she tweeted Sunday, “even if that public figure is beloved and that totality unsettling.” Seems fair enough, right? I mean, after all, it was fact-based. Well, the Washington Post SUSPENDED her... it has caused an uproar in the WP newsroom and on social media, etc.

    The television and radio media circus attention after Koby Bryant’s unfortunate death from that helicopter crash, is absolutely ridiculous and over the top! It just goes to show just how much our society has devolved to today and what/who it really values: idol worship of celebrities! These celebrities include professional athletes and film/television actors, pop musicians, etc, some who have used their platform for beneficial causes, while others are just intoxicated by the adulation of the masses and sometimes do not handle all of that attention very well. While Bryant's death was certainly sad, either ignoring or worse yet, the revisionist history about his sexual assault allegation, as well as the sudden glorification of him as a person, placing him on some silly high pedestal, is totally out of control. He was a very talented professional basketball player who also helped kids... all-in-all, better than many folks. But anyone paying attention realizes that the mainstream media just wants to get more clicks, eyeballs and ratings by sensationalizing his death and discussing it ad nauseam. Worse yet are the other celebrities who are blatantly outdoing each other to fawn over Bryant, making any historical contact with him into some important moment in their lives and then tearfully discussing his passing, for their own benefit, (i.e. Ellen Degeneres and Jimmy Fallon, etc.).... Enough already! AVB-AMG

    By the way, you can get an older workhorse laserjet printer such as an HP 5 or 6 rather cheap and cartridges (5000 pages each cartridge) can be had for about $20 each. I wish my setup could do double-sided. With that cost basis you can make copies of a lot of information, but where to store it, etc.

    Getting ready to head down there in a little while. No hope of getting in (and no way I would have either the patience or stamina for that), but looking to hang out with like-minded people, and take in the whole experience. I'll be sure to report back in a day or so.

    Sniper, that would be a good idea, but two is one and one is none. Those PDFs should be stored in multiple locations and shared amongst friends, but print copies should exist as well (and maybe a well-placed broken microwave. A library of knowledge on medicine, engineering, food, etc. would be invaluable to long term, but the OP is focusing on just (5) or so that you might actually be able to carry/transport with you and keep intact. Just off hand, here are a few of my contenders. Keep in mind that some of the books overlap and there are redundanies. It would also depend on your particular skill set. haven't really found any good books on surviving in an urban setting and a good book on engineering information might be a good choice as well. These books aren't in any particular order.

    To the best of our knowledge it is not “Law”. RTSP changed that requirement several years ago, but we do still ask for ID (FID, DL or PP) as a precaution to passing a firearm across the counter.

    I had the same thing happen to me a few years ago at sportsman Rendevouz in Flemington. Walked in there to check out what they had and was told that NJ law prohibits the handling of a handgun without and FID card. When I said I’ve never heard that before and could they show me where it states this, the older lady told me that she didn’t have time to educate me and if I didn’t have one she would show me any guns. i promptly took out my FID card waved it at her and said...well I don’t have time to spend my money in a shop that’s this rude. Never went back in and now they’re gone. moral to my point...stupidity is everywhere and yes, it seems like most shops are now adopting the...no FID no handling guns. Heritage. TTC, and the shop in Union, forget the name, do it

    They were removed because officially because they required a lot of service. Unofficially because they were set up to short customers. I've never met a machine that was accurate. Best I ever saw was ~7% error and it's ALWAYS under-counting. Wherever you have a bank account should accept rolled coins as a deposit. My account just jams them into a roll gauge and if it fits right, they take it. If it doesn't they give it back and tell you to redo it. I usually go through the process whenever it looks like I have ~$300 or more in change. and the hard part is sorting and rolling them. I've got a hand crank coin sorter. Cost less than the last mis-count by a bank. I'm usually in and out of the bank in about 15 minutes.

    They will shoot just fine, feeding is no problem because of tube mag, chambering is iffy. No danger, as long as you manually cycle the action. Have fun, right up to the point it misfeeds or FTEs and you have to break out the tool box to clear the jam.

    @Ray Ray Here ya go & thanks again for everything you & Allison do for us! CNJFO's APRIL HOG HUNT HAS 7 SPOTS TO SELL! NJ ASSEMBLYMAN PARKER SPACE HUNTS WITH US! by Black Wire Media Monday Jan. 27, 2020 www.cnjfo.com/join-us The Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners held a history-making Hog Hunt fundraiser yesterday at Mohr's Island, in the middle of the Susquehanna River near Bainbridge, PA. NJ State Assemblyman Parker F. Space and his son Hunter Space each harvested a fine specimen along with ANJRPC's lead attorney Dan Schmutter and 12 other hunters at this sold-out event held yesterday (January 26th) on the 150 acre island known for its' "walking & stalking" hunts featuring 250-300 pound hogs. It was a first for CNJFO and any other 2nd Amendment organization based in NJ, as Space, a well-respected Legislator that fights with us against the tyranny of unconstitutional gun law, his son Hunter and our State NRA Association's lead attorney Dan Schmutter hunted with us! We're proud of the friendships the Coalition has formed since our inception 5 years ago, and congratulate all 15 of yesterday's Hunters on their safety practices and their harvests. As our Hunters signed-in at the boat ramp upon arrival, they were each given a Gun For Hire red sling bag loaded with GFH logo'd "goodies" courtesy of NRA Board of Director Anthony Colandro, Gun For Hire's flamboyant owner. Colandro is running for reelection to the NRA Board and CNJFO proudly endorses him! (All 5-year NRA members & Life members received a ballot last week, so check your mailboxes)! Colandro hosts Gun For Hire Radio, a weekly podcast that reaches at least a million gun owners. We insert a NJ state NRA Association newsletter (News & Briefs, edited by supporter Marjorie Kleiman) along with everything from safety tips to a work order from our sponsoring Butcher, V. Roche & Son from Whitehouse Station, NJ, as well as literature & swag from all our sponsors. Gun For Hire's red sling bags make it all possible! The 15 hogs were spread throughout most of the 150 acre island in the Susquehanna River, and Saturday's day-long soaking rain made things a bit muddy, but as nothing will deter a hog hunter in search of BACON, all hunters harvested a fine specimen, which our guides expertly field-dressed and transported to the boat ramp. When the Hunt is over our hunters then receive assistance from the guides in lifting the hogs into hunter's vehicles. A hot lunch featuring brats made with hogs from the same source, chips & drinks awaited the capacity crowd upon completion of the Hunt. A raffle for great prizes followed, with Henry Repeating Arms, NRA-ILA, Second Amendment Foundation and CNJFO all donating swag, and SC Arms' Derek Pitera donated a gift certificate for a AR-15 lower (winner has to pass NICS, observe ALL NJ law & take possession at SC Arms in Spotswood, NJ). The fundraising Hunt is one of a pair held by the Coalition each season that runs from mid-December to the first week in May. CNJFO Treasurer Jack Pyle and Shows & Community Outreach Committee member Jon MacMillan assisted Hunt Chair & CNJFO Vice President Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal at the Hunt. MacMillan & Rosenthal gave their hunting spots to the Space's so the Coalition could make history. Rosey & "Mac" will be hunting on Sunday April 5th. Care to join NJ's most active 2A group as we make more history? The Coalition hopes to sell-out its' Sunday April 5th Hog Hunt being held at the same venue. Registration for the Sunday April 5th Hunt can be found HERE: https://www.cnjfo.com/event-3676112 .

    The Globalist, Statist, Marxists and their media are exerting tyrannical pressure at every level from the sham impeachment to dismissing all of the Bill of Rights to crushing taxes and dependence... as they whittle away at our Constitution and freedom becomes tyranny. This is why, Greenday, the Constitution cannot be "living and breathing" That document that limits the power of the government over the citizen cannot be interpretted in whatever way fits for the moment by those with an agenda.

    A cowboy, who just moved to Montana from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Beer. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time." The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona, the other is in Colorado. When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself." The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss." The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains. "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking." “It hasn't affected my brothers though."

    I have one in .17HMR and love it. I only had it out a couple of times, added a Nikon Rimfire scope, and it shoots great. Sighted it in at 50 yards and have taken it out to 200 so far. The gun is more accurate than I am.

    Not for me, better check on your side. ...."There is just no way that the state of New Jersey would close Route 47, also known as Delsea Drive right before United States President Donald Trump is set to come to Wildwood; Unless it was an absolute necessity. Right?, I have lost track of the number of people who have asked me if this is a circus stunt by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy … in order to politically retaliate against President Trump, right before his fast-approaching Tuesday, January 28, 2020 Rally at The Wildwoods Convention Center? Tens of thousands of people will be traveling to Wildwood, New Jersey. It begs the question: Is this Bridgegate 2? (emphasis added)"
