    Surefire X300U is the “A” answer. Avoid the strobe. Keep the switchology simple - light on, light off. That’s about all the brainpower you will have to spare in a real world deployment anyway. Additionally, any strobe effect that disorients your threat, will also disorient you, AND, most importantly, strobes hide subtle movement - which means you will miss threat indicators and warning signs, specifically slow movements of the hands. Get all the light (lumens and candela) you can and be able to turn it on and off.

    Dear Vice President Biden, Although I refused to listen to it, I understand that during your presidential acceptance speech, you were calling for the unity of Trump supporters. I remember four years ago my President Trump also called for unity. I remember how Congressional members of your Democratic Party responded by boycotting his inauguration. I remember how you and your Democratic party cheated and used the greatest law enforcement institution of this country to spy on my President Trumps campaign. I remember how you and your Democratic Party created a fake Russian dossier to try and impeach my President Trump. I remember how your speaker of the house ripped up my President Trumps beautiful State of the Union speech on National TV. I remember how you and your Democratic Party tried to impeach my President Trump over a Ukraine phone call. You accused my President Trump of pay to play. Come to find out Joe, it was really you and your son Hunter. I remember how you and your Democratic Party blamed my President Trump over a pandemic that he had nothing to do with. I remember how you and your Democratic Party encouraged rioting and looting of my great United States of America. I remember how you and your Democratic Party used the media to spread lie after lie about my President Trump. I remember how you and your Democratic Party stole the election from my President Trump. This Trump supporter remembers all that Joe and will NOT be unifying with your Democratic Party. This Trump supporter will be giving you the same respect you gave my President Trump. Your abject criminal dishonesty is treasonous. Ted Nugent

    Nothing wrong with Anderson at all. I feel sorry for the guys that need to have a certain logo or pay $50 for a safety, imagine having that little of a dik that you need to pay up for a weapon they will fire less than 500rds/yr lol I say this as someone who has/had LMT, COLT, NOVESKE, BCM, LARUE, etc etc etc.... I used Anderson parts for my boys first builds over the summer and was very happy

    To answer the OPs question... Why is it 5+ days in NJ and still minutes to hours in other states doing NICS checks? I'm no expert and have zero first hand knowledge, but I've asked the same question at my FFL out of curiosity. I was told the difference in many other states is they do an instant NICS check (directly to NICS database). In NJ it goes to the State Police and they have a trained squirrel who reviews each NICS application by clicking a button for an acorn when it gets hungry, which then sends each NICS check out to the NICS system. I think they generally keep the squirrel overfed, so it doesn't click the "give me an acorn" button very often. Oh and the squirrel is a state employee, so of course it only works Mon-Fri 9am-5pm, minus at least 1 hour for lunch, and is off on holidays (usually getting fat and overfed) obviously. BTW... I'm only being half sarcastic. My understanding is that this is basically how NICS gets processed in NJ. Someone has to do something with each check before it actually gets processed through the federal NICS system. It ain't automated. Well it is, with a meat sack in the middle to slow it all to a crawl. Someone here probably knows better, but that's what I've been told.

    If you shop around or wait for a holiday sale you can find them for around $225-$250. Cue shitposting “of my light was $50 and is just as good” (not calling out anyone specifically, just been here long enough to know what follows after you recommend quality lifesaving gear that is expensive) My response - • Buy once, cry once. • You get what you pay for. • Don’t aspire to mediocrity. • Best VALUE is more important than lowest PRICE. I have broken just about every other pistol WML out there. I have not broken these. I now have about 6 of them. They work and they are worth it. Make sure you are getting the newest light with the brightest rating (Current is 1000 lumens but there are 500 and 600 lumen versions out there from previous generations). Buy from a reputable dealer so you don’t get an air soft copy. If the price is “Too good to be true”, it probably is. Ike at Big Tex Outdoors has them in stock now for ~ $270. Fair price and a good trustworthy company.

    Antifa is not rolling into any neighborhoods in Sussex County..... they want press....they will stay focused on cities.... *and* by chance it happens....do you want a puny 62grn bullet or 147 to 168grn bullet ? Had to...

    I find it interesting that over penetration is a concern with a 357 revolver but not an AR? The 357 is pushing a bullet with a relatively large frontal area out at 1200ish FPS. The AR is pushing a streamlined little bugger that's quite pointy at close to 3000FPS. To the OP: What is your home's layout and size? Do you share a wall with a neighbor? Do you have a spouse/kids or do you live alone? Do you have any training on firearms? Do you understand the differences between "ball" ammo and defensive ammo? Are you someone that can actually point the muzzle of a firearm at someone and attempt to destroy them? No need to answer these questions in the thread. They are posted just to give you something to think about. For me, I have a striker fired, semi auto pistol with passive safeties next to my bed with a flash light. It is loaded with defensive hollow point ammunition. Why? Because my home is small and my neighbors are close. HP's expand in walls and dump their energy into the plaster better than ball ammo will. When I miss my intended target with HP, I feel some reassurance that the bullet will stop in the wall/ceiling/floor before hitting someone that I did not intend to hit. That's me. If I had a larger house and/or more land to "defend" I would consider an AR for home defense. But for my scenario, my choice makes sense to me. It may not make sense to or for you. I have owned more than a few AR's over the years and have never considered them in a defensive role in my home. They are toys for me. I have a battle rifle, but it's not what sleeps next to me. It is, however, the gun that I would use my pistol to fight to get to if the time came. In the world, it's a very versatile tool. In my home, hard pass. And, by the way, if you're simply looking for an excuse to purchase an AR, by all means have at it. Good luck.

    This thread has been a great learning experience. Getting everyone’s opinions is always good as I get to see things from other perspectives. I appreciate the sarcasm, humor general „rubbing”, and overall civility of the exchange. Fantastic environment to participate in. Many thanks to all for your input!

    The FUDD is strong in this thread. Really love the "ARs are a fad" Honestly, feel most sad for new posters coming here, asking valid questions. To the OP, I hope you got some good answers before this thread was derailed. I would say that if you can find an AR platform for a reasonable price, it might be a good start, though ammo in almost any popular caliber will be a pain to find in quantities needed to familiarize yourself with the platform (and likely a pain on the wallet, too). I found the AR platform to be extremely intuitive, doing well using a borrowed one long before I had my own. You can customize almost anything about the rifle in the future should you decide you want to change something, so you should be able to tailor it to your preferences. Whatever you get, find something that does fit you well, including having the stock pinned to a length that suits you and not just fully extended like many offerings seem to be. Do realize that prices are vastly inflated now vs what they were not that long ago, so you likely won't make any money back if you sell it off in a couple months. Personally, while I have a pistol, shotgun, and AR ready as home defense guns, I would pick the AR 100% of the time if I'm given the choice for ease of use, ease of aim, ease of reloading, and overpenetration concerns even though nearest neighbors are 300+ feet away.

    I don't see a AR as a good first choice for HD in any environment. and that's why... to me, it seems to be more of a cult then anything. I wonder how many people have actually tried moving around their house, turning doorways and walls, going around furniture, all while swinging a AR of 35" in length? In most cases, the HD encounter with a bad guy will be at short ranges, 10 - 30 ft., not 100 ft shots. Do you really need a 3300 ft/sec projectile in that situation? And, if by chance the intruder gets the jump on you, good luck trying to get that barrel up for a clean shot in close contact. A handgun, in the above situation, is more appropriate.

    There is a wealth of information on their website--it's worth a look. They sell a lot more than just M1s. The M1 page lists about 30 combinations of grade and manufacturer. All but one are sold out, and it's been that way for quite awhile. The field grade Winchesters they have are $850, shipping to your FFL included. Gone are the days when the DCM (precursor to CMP) charged $165 and shipped them directly to your house. There has been a lot of hand-wringing over people buying their limit of 8/year, only to resell for profit to those not interested in the civilian marksmanship requirements that are part of the CMP charter. But they've not figured out how to prevent it.

    The folks that have hoarded M1's are going to be kicking the bucket - and the market will be flooded. It will be a buyers market soon enough. CMP is still the best bet - the private market - UNLESS it is a truly collectible configuration, is 10000% inflated. Agree. Done correctly - no M1 thumb....correctly that is. I have that meme some where on my phone - and many do not know - a LOT of the 30CAL WW2 is steel core armor piercing..... - and they were NOT blacktip... So the phrase turning cover to concealment is 100% true.

    The only difference is in how the mounting system works. “A” type (rail slide with latch) preferred for polymer guns ”B” type (cross bolt) preferred for metal framed guns

    love me some .357, my absolute favorite handgun round. I'm getting just over 1500 fps out of a 6" 686 with a recipe from a friend. That's a 158gr jhp. It can be pushed harder too so never underestimate the 357. The round has been toned down also love me some m1 ping!!!!!! If the op has a 9mm already, then by all means get an AR. I'd build one in this mkt however

    Would not recommend an AR for home defense in urban areas but it's the best all around platform ever seen. Lever guns are cool as fk

    I feel like it's not as many stands as Clinton, but it's also not really as busy. I usually go on weekdays (I have my hunting license, and l just renewed it) so I'm not sure how busy a weekend morning is normally (probably not as busy during the winter months) I've seen largish groups shooting of like 6-8 on a single thrower at a single stand. So I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem if it's not packed. I can swing past this weekend to do some recon if there's interest.

    How welcoming are they of larger groups? Usually 15-20ish. Generally with 2 throwers. Someone would if course have a hunting license. Which reminds me, I need to renew mine!

    Shoot what you got. I'm a fan of lever guns and I'm a fan of .357 magnum, so rock on. A lot of "enthusiasts" have multiple guns in multiple locations around the house for different reasons. They become the anonymous experts of the internet who are convinced that their favorite gun is the only one that everyone else should use. For people like that it's easy to talk about which gun is the "best for home defense" or the "best for XXXXXX", but at the end of the day the best gun is the one you can get and operate effectively when you need it. Neighbor of mine has a pump action shotgun. That's it. He's killed things with it, used it for recreation, and you can be sure he'd use it for home defense if the need arose.

    Probably they're keeping their firearm ownership quiet. Outside of a couple of trusted friends I don't discuss what I own or don't own with anyone. IMO anonymity (what little is possible these days) is important, you might want to be careful with personally identifiable info publicly posted. Use the messaging feature for that stuff.

    The very first thing you can do, and IMO should, is buy a couple reloading manuals. The ABCs of Reloading is a must read for all new reloaders. Another great book, regardless of what reloading press you end up with, is the Lyman Reloading Handbook. You should have a decent idea of what reloading is all about before you go plunking down money on components. It can save you a lot of time and money in the end.
