    Easy.....You don't register it! Registration is voluntary in NJ. So don't even think about it.

    I won't let this day pass without acknowledging this important holiday... yes, we can celebrate the person whose intrepid journey brought Western civilization to this land...at the same time, giving a deserving nod to the many Italian-Americans who've contributed to this great nation. Let's not politicize this thread since it's outside of 1A... just leave it as a positive affirmation of ethnic & national pride... in line with the original intent of this Federal Holiday! Ciao!

    I was in the East Stroudsberg area on Saturday for a family thing, so I stopped into a small gun show (interesting) and then dropped into Dinkelbergers Sports to check things out. They had a very good selection of guns and the staff was very friendly/talkative. I was chatting with one young guy behind the counter and I asked about his stock of powder and primers. He said they would small quantities in from time to time which would sellout relatively quickly. He said there was a delivery the previous day, so they'd probably be good for a week or so. we walked down to the powder area and there was a good supply of 1 lb. bottles of Hodgdon and IMR powders. I don't "need" any powder right now and prices weren't fantastic, but I was there and i didn't have to worry about shipping or Hazmat, so i picked up a pound of H335 for $37. The kid said they had CCI No 41 sm rifle primers, so I picked up a box of 1000 for $70 with he same rationale that while I dont' "need" them right now, it's better to grab while they're in front of me and i don't have to pay shipping or Hazmat. Next time I'm in the area I'll definitely stop back in and check them out again. They seemed to have a decent selection of used rifles, so something may come home with me.

    If stuff is on the shelf more than a few days it's because of high pricing. Those bottles are typically 27 bucks and those primers are 35...

    Just to follow up on this, I called Ruger and explained what was happening. They immediately sent out a new extractor, spring, and plunger. Got them just a few days later. I disassembled the bolt (thanks You Tube) and found a broken extractor spring. Replaced all the parts, and tested it out yesterday. Happy to report that it now seems to be running flawlessly. BTW, it's a little scary to find that a problem with a tiny spring can disable an entire firearm.

    I mentioned it. It gets quicker as you get more confident. Until you get an ultrasonic cleaner!

    As someone mentioned get a towel to clean your firearm on. The best thing to wipe the firearm with is an old tshirt. Absorbent and no lint. As you grow more confident, you can make patches from an old tshirt. I haven't bought patches in years.

    Another tip, take a lot of pictures from different angles during the process. For reference during reassembly.

    Don't be nervous! Cleaning your firearm for the first time is great! It'll help you learn the relationship between all of the parts and you'll have a better understanding of what they all do. It should have come with a user manual which would have a schematic for the official name of all of the pieces. Have that accessible while you're watching a couple YouTube videos. Prepare a clutter free work area, and have a tray or dish handy that you can put the pieces on like the guide rod and spring that might want to roll away otherwise. If you're nervous about just handling your firearm, don't be. Without the ammo in the same room, it's just a hunk of metal and maybe polymer. If you're nervous about doing it wrong, just don't try to force anything that doesn't want to be pulled apart or put together. Other than that, it's pretty easy. If you're exceptionally concerned about doing it yourself, there are gun cleaning classes offered at most ranges, but you can learn just as much if not more from the internet. If you just want the moral support, ask around at the range you might find a friend that's willing to show you how. I once thought it was super complicated and scary but it gives you much more hands on knowledge of your tools.

    overkill is just right. unless you're flushing a 50 gallon fuel tank with water and blue dawn. then overkill is overkill. don't ask me how i know this.

    i'll also add.....don't be nervous. people make mistakes when they're scared or just nervous. just respect the weapon.

    Literally. Safety check it's unloaded and have at it. Unless it's a ruger Mk 1 2 or 3, it's hard to screw up.

    Being nervous about your first cleaning is absolutely normal, and maybe not a bad thing. I must have watched different YouTube videos a zillion times (ok, maybe a million) before my first time. Just go slow with a basic field strip and you'll be fine. If you get stuck don't panic, just let us know. Helped my son with his S&W 2.0 and it was a piece of cake, relax you'll do fine.

    Lead traveling at around 1200 feet per second down the barrel is an effective cleaner.

    Youtube taught me how to clean all my guns, some very in-depth videos and some basic videos. I knew how to field strip and clean my first hand gun even before I picked it up. Dont sweat it, it will become easy, and possibly enjoyable.

    The gun is new and unfired so all thats needed is remove the slide and run some cleaning patches through the barrel followed by some oiled patches and lightly lube the slide areas/barrel contact points. You can wipe down the slide and barrel with oil if not going to the range soon. As mentioned watch some youtube vids first, M&P's are very easy to break down for cleaning.

    That is a good tip! Where did you get it? A lot of shops will walk you through first time disassembly if you are unsure. And, as stated above, YouTube can be helpful as well.

    What is this "too many rifles" nonsense.

    Newer ones with thicker barrel are supposed to be more accurate. I purchased a pre-owned one dated to late 70s. It shoots fine for me. One of my brother inlaws family has one at a farm they own. He says the Mini-14 has taken more deer on the property than any other rifle. Here's a good article about their "problem". If you buy one made after 2006 you should be fine. https://www.offthegridnews.com/self-defense/the-ruger-mini-14s-biggest-problem-and-how-to-fix-it/
