    3 basic reasons why it’s dumb: The first rule of getting into a gunfight while seated in your car is don’t. Cars are bullet magnets and offer almost no protective cover from incoming rounds. So, if you’re in a car and you need to pull your gun, hit the gas and drive away instead. If you can’t drive away, your best course of action is to bail out of the car and make space between you and your aggressor/bad guy. I bet you’ll wish the gun was already on your person then. Think about this - If you are carjacked, would you rather have the gun on you as you are forced out of the car? Or still in the holster between your legs that you can’t get to without telegraphing your intent to fight? Or is it better to leave it in the car as a gift to the bad guy? Fighting while trapped in a car is the last resort. If that’s the case and you have to fight from inside your car, carrying off body is dumb because: You spend hours and hours of training time and ammo drawing from your body. Do you really think you are going to remember, under the stress of a physical altercation where you need your gun, that today, for the 15 minutes you are in your car, that you put the gun over here? In this spot? Not on your body where you are used to it? News flash - you aren’t. Ultimately, no one rises to the occasion. Everyone falls back on their highest level of training. In other words - under stress - your 20 reps from the off-body car rig will not override your 10000 reps of drawing from the holster on your belt. Keep the gun on your body and attend a training class that will teach you the proper way to fight from a seated position. It’s not hard to do once someone shows you the way. ETA: I thought of a third reason - the first time you walk into a Stop & Rob and realize your holster is empty because the gun is in the car - because you forgot to transfer it over to your hip when you got out of the car to get a Twinkie and a coffee - you’ll never off-body carry again. So - to sum up: 1) If you choose to get in a gunfight while seated in your car - That’s dumb. 2) If you have to bail out of the car and you leave your gun behind - That’s dumb. 3) If you react to a deadly threat and unconsciously reach for your gun at your hip/appendix (where you normally carry it) and you find an empty holster - (either due to forgetting you moved it to a new location or forgetting it altogether in the car) - That’s dumb.

    Permit in-hand! I had my hearing this morning in Gloucester County. I received an email a couple weeks ago from the judge’s secretary telling me to appear. There were about a hundred people there for the morning session. There is another in the afternoon. They called in groups, township by township… biggest groups first. Washington Twp was the biggest with 31 people. I’m from Woolwich Twp, and was the third group. The judge said he already reviewed the applications, background checks and qualifications so this would go pretty quickly. He also said that if anyone wanted to add an additional gun later, they should send an original qualification to his secretary and he will issue an amended court order. There is no need to come back. He called each person up individually, in no obvious order. He swore us in and asked three questions: Are you (name)? When you filled out the application, we’re you truthful? Have any of the answers changed since then? I answered yes, yes, no. He asked the prosecutor if there was any objection, to which she answered no every time. He then said he’s approving the application for the guns I qualified with. He read out the make, model, caliber and serial number of each. The secretary came over to get me to sign the permit, and took it back to make a copy. Then I sat back down to wait. After a bunch of people went, the judge took a break. The secretary called off names and handed out permits and the court orders limiting us to the listed guns. The permit has See Court Order marked. I was there 9-11:30. It was 98 days. I submitted my application 8/10. No references were ever contacted. Permit number is in the mid 300’s.

    Your username is kinda ironic, because this is why I hate NJ. Is there any particular reason the rules don't apply to you? Do you have special driving skills? Is there something about your vehicle that would make it clear to someone waiting to pull out into traffic or change lanes that you're going to arrive much sooner than expected? My guess is probably not. Having people in a position where the rules don't apply to them is bad enough, but to then crow about it as if it is funny instead of disgustingly corrupt is demonstrative of why this is such a shitty State.

    As an FYI, 2023 will be a very important year in State-wide elections when all 120 seats in the legislature are up for grab. Get registered if you're not, get informed on the candidate's 2A voting or position, support their campaigns and vote these anti-gun officials out of office.

    We do not have to inform Law Enforcement that we're carrying. Keep it concealed, keep your lips zipped. If it's loaded but locked, you're still fine if you have a NJ PTC (for now). If you're crossing the border into PA - that needs to be unloaded unless you have a PA CCW (Follow FOPA).

    Slight Chance To Affect Monday's Vote Guys, some inside information direct from a New Jersey assemblyman that strongly opposes A4769. The upcoming vote on Monday Nov 21 was a last minute surprise. Due to the short notice, attendance by assembly people is expected to be smaller than usual. They need 41 votes to pass the bill. I am told that if only 41 or 42 people actually show up to vote, the bill may not pass because some people don't want their vote to be the one that is responsible for the bill passing. Additionally, there are four specified democrats that we are possibly able to sway. Two of them are in mixed red/blue districts, meaning not hardcore dem district and the threat to their seats during the next election could be enough to persuade them to vote no. Two others are known to be reasonable minded people and logical persuasion might work. • Assemblyman Paul D. Moriarty • Assemblywoman Gabriela M. Mosquera • Assemblyman Wayne P. DeAngelo • Assemblyman Roy Freiman The assemblyman tells us that non-stop calls coming into the office (rather than emails) is paid attention to. If you keep their phones ringing off the hook we have the ability to influence their vote. Just be polite when doing so. He also tells us that, while we cannot testify, we can register our opposition and attend the vote on Monday. He says a show of force can also influence the vote of those that are on the fence. What can you do today? Keep calling these 4 assembly people, even if they don't represent your district. Let them know you oppose A4769! Just remember, its hard to convince someone to change their mind through harsh words and attacks. Make your opposition known like a pro! Today is the last business day before the vote. If you are going to call these offices, it needs to be today! Assemblyman Paul D. Moriarty - 856-232-6700 and 856-401-3073 Assemblywoman Gabriela M. Mosquera - 856-232-6700 and 856-401-3073 Assemblyman Wayne P. DeAngelo - 609-631-7501 Assemblyman Roy Freiman - 908-829-4191

    Done! And thanks, @g17owner, for posting this important announcement! As a sidenote, I find it DEEPLY offensive that our legislators schedule these hearings with such apparent randomness and lack of proper notice --- cutting short people's ability to register their opposition. Infuriating!

    WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation. We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—-That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..

    This is why, whether I have a firearm with me or not, if coming to a stop I always leave enough room between me and the vehicle in front of me to pull out.

    Saying " I have actually walked around outdoors with a gun unlike most of you" will not make you any friends around here. Alot of us are hunters...since 1974. Maybe you would like to rephrase that line?

    I don’t see the problem with adding 10, or 50 guns to your carry permit. Who gives a shit? If you are legal to carry and meet the requirements, you should be able to carry any damn thing you want. That’s REALLY the point that should be addressed.

    The giant unconstitutional turd known as A4769 is back in committee this coming monday at 10AM. As gun owners, its our right and responsibility to register our opposition to this flaming pile of crap. If you'd like to do so (or if you'd like to testify), please register your opposition before 3pm. *The form title is misleading. You can use this form to register opposition and/or testify. You do not have to testify in order to register your opposition. https://www.njleg.state.nj.us/live-proceedings/2022-11-14-10:00:00/AJU/Meeting/register-to-testify?fbclid=IwAR1bMVww15xxBi0qvQSR1ZZXDfTF3yhrlMeh0Olz9l2uOOTGZUhA8skYjuE

    I handle shipping guns at our shop. Here is how it works... You bring the gun to me. I give you a repair receipt, I log it into my repair book, someone pays for shipping and I send it out. The repair facility fixes the gun, someone pays for shipping and the gun ships back to me. I call you & you come pick up the gun and it is logged out of my repair book. End of story. No transfer fees and no NICS.

    Don't feed the troll. You gave him exactly what he wanted, attention. Typical mindset of a wannabe LEO. Guarantee you he's a dispatcher that walks around with an owb phone, military boots, and the cop cut to match. Might have even flunked the academy. Anyhow, really hoping we see an uptick in approved applications this week.. as we approach the holidays I can only imagine the vacations amongst court personnel is going to greatly delay what is already a snail-paced process. And to think - I scoffed at the records clerk back in July when he said "you MIGHT get it by December, maybe even later".

    You can’t make an appointment to have an emergency. It’s not something you can schedule - and you don’t get a vote as to where or when you are going to be a victim. That decision is up to predators. About all you can do is to make some choices that lower your chances of being a target, but realistically, all you can do is be prepared. If you are doing a threat analysis of neighborhoods, areas, regions, etc… that is fine. But that should be a pure go/no-go analysis. Not a go armed/no-go. I mean, seriously - If you wouldn’t go there without a gun because it’s too dangerous, then don’t go there with a gun. Just stay away.

    true. i was more paying mind to the level of childishness going on in our statehouse. these people were acting like teenagers that were just trying to make excuses to their parents. just based on the attitudes i heard in this video, i feel none of them should be allowed in any position of governance over anyone.

    In my opinion, "they" don't trust themselves because they know how F'd up they are, and are projecting anxieties about themselves on everyone else. Basically they are saying they are scum bags so everyone else must be too.

    It is the result of conflating the rules for RPO permits with the rules for civilian carry permits. RPO have to qualify every 6 months with the actual gun they carry. You know, these highly trained professionals who would put a civilian shooter to shame. /sarc The NJ elite just don't want peons being able to carry. God forbid they get the idea that they might just be able to pull off self sufficiency and no longer be dependent on the government to provide for their every need.

    You should be able to carry whatever handgun you own period. On my NY permit depending on time of year and where I'm going I carry a full sized 1911 down to a North American Arms mini revolver (better than a pointy stick) and any thing I own in between.

    Do you really think they don't have your name already? Even if you're not on the lists you're thinking of, you're certainly on the list of people who don't appear on any other list.

    Carry the court order, carry the guns qualified with. That's it. I will carry a digital copy of the order and a backup photocopy in the glovebox or console just in case of a low phone battery.
