    Bob Viden is a long time friend of Senator Sweeney! Even though he represented us in the NRA, Viden always maintained his stance against concealed carry in NJ! He has repeatedly stated that NJ is too densely populated to allow CCW and that we would quickly become the wild west if CCW were allowed! Ever since I learned this fact, I have never given Bob a single Penney ever again. I never will!

    Late night 2020 style ballot dumps is how they did it. Murphy went from losing by 2 points all night to winning by 3 points days later. They kept finding votes for Murphy until he was safely past the margin where Jack could have requested a recount.

    With Democrats firmly in control of Trenton, I have no doubt that they will ram whatever anti-2A legislation they want down our throats (as we say in polite company). We can kick and scream, and tell them all how unfair it is, but the reality is that they will do what they want and we are powerless to stop them. I know people will argue that we need to stay here and fight, but the only viable solution I see is to flee this hellhole of a state.

    The SCOTUS ruling won't make any difference on whether they pass all this nonsense. Remember, the Bill of Rights is above Murphy's pay grade. They will pass most of this, maybe skip 1 or 2 so ANJRPC can claim a 'victory' while we lose more ground. A favorable SCOTUS ruling in Bruin may mean a easier time getting the new statutes overturned in court by paying our own money to lawyers while the government uses our tax money to fight us. In case there is any misunderstanding, I'm mighty pissed at this continued bullcrap.

    One of the first firearms I bought in NJ was at Bobs. When I heard him rail against CCW in NJ, I never went back.

    This is an article I wrote a while ago for CNJFO. I thought it would be apropos to this thread. TL:DR - train and practice before you need the skills Thoughts on learning to defend yourself with a firearm. Following a recent post on Facebook (which the powers that be decided to shut down) I was asked if the reply I posted to that post could be used in a CNJFO article. I offered to expand on what I posted and here it is. The post raised the question of whether the discussion of the fine detail of when/where/what deadly force could be used in self defense was worth the time being spent on it. It is fair to assume many of the newer members of the firearm owning community (and many of the more established members, most likely) have not taken the time to develop the skills to effectively deliver the deadly force being discussed making the discussion largely moot. Firing the legally perfect shot and missing does nobody any good at all. A key aspect is that you are completely familiar with your chosen tool (whatever firearm you deem to be appropriate to your situation) so that you will carry out any manipulations without having to think about it. If you're experiencing a break in you have a boat load of things to process through your OODA loop. If you must delay the completion of that thought process to figure out how to operate your gun, you are at a huge disadvantage. You are already in a reactive mode, not proactive so you are starting on the back foot. You have the opportunity to remove one of the obstacles to a successful outcome by taking the time to train and practice with your firearm in advance. Let’s break that paragraph down a little. What is an OODA loop? An Air Force Colonel named John Boyd came up with the concept to describe the mental work you must do to react in a tactical situation. OODA is an acronym – Observe, Orient, Decide, Act. 1. Observe: You must first observe the thing you need to react to – obvious right? You cannot react to something that you do not know about. 2. Orient: This perhaps less obvious. You must orient the observed object or action in your understanding of the world around you. Seeing a man with a large knife in a Hibachi restaurant is perhaps no big deal. The picture changes somewhat if you are in the launderette. 3. Decide: Having digested the information from the previous two steps you need to decide what, if anything, you are going to do. Yes, deciding to do nothing is still a decision. No decision can be catastrophic. 4. Act: Carry out the thing you have decided to do. In a dynamic environment you must constantly re-evaluate the changing situation, so you are running through your OODA loop over and over again. Col. Boyd said that to win your fight you need to complete your OODA loop before the enemy can complete theirs. You can interrupt your opponent’s OODA loop by taking some action, the more unpredictable the better. Similarly, they can disrupt your loop too and make you start over. The human brain can only consciously think one thought at a time. With enough familiarity we can learn to carry out tasks subconsciously. We gain that familiarity through practice. Subconscious activity is always quicker than conscious activity. You instinctively act much faster than you can consciously act. Completion of the OODA loop is the action. If it takes a long time to complete the action, there is a good chance your opponent will complete their action (and their whole OODA loop with it) before you and you just lost that step in the fight. Now you must start over again and you opponent still has the initiative. For this discussion, let’s assume the decision was that you need to fire a shot at your opponent. You need to become so familiar with your firearm that operating it does not significantly delay completing the last step in your loop and delivering that shot where it needs to be. There are four stages of competence that you can progress through when gaining a practical skill and these have a huge impact on the outcome. These are: 1. Unconscious Incompetence: This is where every new shooter starts. They have no idea what they need to do and have no ability to do it. Most people move to the next stage very quickly. 2. Conscious Incompetence: You have gained some knowledge and you have a reasonable idea of what you need to do, but you have yet to develop the skills to achieve the desired result. The good news is that if you give yourself enough time to observe yourself while shooting, you can gain the skills you need by correcting your actions as you go through the repetitions of practice. (i.e. Don’t rush your shots in practice. Only go as fast as you can think). You know the fundamentals of how to place your shots, you are just not very good at doing them consistently. 3. Conscious Competence: You have practiced enough to be able to carry out all the actions needed to place a shot where you need it to be when you concentrate on what you are doing. You have to think about one or more of the fundamentals to be able to pull off consistent hits, but you are making your hits. 4. Unconscious Competence: This is the goal. You can now place a shot where you need it to be without having to think about how to do it. The firearm is now an extension of yourself and placing the shot just happens after you have made your decision. Getting to unconscious competence is how you optimize the last step in your OODA loop. You cannot do it during the fight. You must prepare before the fight begins – that is now. Progressing from stage 1 to 2, and 2 to 3 is usually most quickly achieved by engaging a competent instructor. They can instill the knowledge you need to understand what you are trying to do and spot mistakes that you are making. A good instructor will train you on the areas you need to work on. However, only you can put in the work to gain the skills. That means investing time on the static range to practice. It needs to be productive practice, however. There is little to be gained and much to be lost by repeating the actions when you are fatigued. You will make more mistakes and your subconscious mind will learn those mistakes. Try to limit practice sessions to no more than an hour at a time. If your range session is just not coming together on a particular day pack it up. Do not practice poor performance. Note the difference between training and practice. Training from a good instructor is expensive (plus the cost of ammo). Practice is where you repeat the things taught by the instructor (it still costs ammo, but you are not paying the instructor for his time). Only by practicing will you make the firearm manipulations subconscious, making them much faster and freeing your conscious mind to process the change to the threat in front of you. There are also dryfire practice exercises which your instructor can teach you which will build skills without any cost apart from your time. When you have reached conscious competence in simple marksmanship (you can hit a static target while standing still) it is time to add in some dynamic aspects. The simple truth is that an aggressor is not going to stand still while you shoot at them, and if you have any survival instincts, you will not stand still either. Moving and shooting is going to be necessary and will disrupt your ability to use the skills you have built so far. This would be a good time to seek out a good instructor who can help you learn what you need to do in a dynamic situation. Again, there is a difference between instruction and practice. You still need to invest time to build the skills. Also consider that guns are mechanical devices and sometimes fail to operate as intended. Clearing malfunctions and getting back in the fight is also a set of skills that can be learned to the point of unconscious competence. Inexpensive practice for dynamic shooting can be had by going to an IDPA, USPSA, ICORE and/or 3-gun match. You will get to move, shoot, use your holster and have to reload under pressure which most ranges do not allow during regular shooting. The dynamic nature of these competitions will also increase the likelihood of encountering unexpected malfunctions which you will need to clear while still “on the clock.” Achieving unconscious competence while moving and shooting at a moving target frees the conscious mind to work on the OOD part of OODA giving you a tactical advantage. The best news in all of this is that practicing these skills is enormous fun! (and it might just save your life) Final thought: No matter where you are in your skill development, if your life is on the line you must try anything in your power to survive the event. Don’t be reckless, but don’t think for a moment I am saying that until you have become superbly skilled you must give up. Learning these skills improves your chance of being victorious – nothing guarantees it. May luck be on your side.

    Sat on the patio this morning and rubbed down the receiver with oil and steel wool, and removed the surface rust. All while watching a big 8 point buck sniff around some does. It’s clean enough for my purposes, I won’t bother with rattle canning it, I’ll leave it as is. I’ll get to work on the stock later.

    Always apply for six permits, anything less is a waste of time. You can on paper buy six handguns every six months, with one handgun every 30 days. But with NICS taking more than a day, realistically you aren’t getting six. Always apply for six and when you are a month or two before the 180 day expiration date, go apply for six handguns. It’s all B.S but that’s how it is unfortunately.

    For better or worse, it really is up to the PD and their overall volume of requests. I feel like I got lucky in my time frame. I agree it feels silly to get your FARS background check back-to-back with a NICS check which basically covers the same thing. Best to always apply for five or six permits at once so you're not at a loss. They cost like $2 but the time lost with this process is much worse if you do end up wanting something.

    It is a blatant violation of the 14th A, period. Politicians can get their permit, as well as those politically connected. I retired cop is under no greater threat than anyone else in this state but is given special favors. Gays got their marriage bill in all states because it was already in 26 and that would have been a 14th A violation for all others. Same issues applies although gun owner organizations don't seem to get it. Maybe NJ gun rights leaders just want to change the definition of need being that you are shot at in 5 separate incidents rather than 6. What they have done thus far has been worthless.

    Turkish 8mm ammo is only good in a p.o.s. bolt action rifle. It is extremely hot ammo and very unreliable. If you use it in a Semi auto rifle expect this to happen eventually. If they would have used Yugo or Romanian surplus ammo it would have probably had no issues.

    Have things been getting better for gun owners in NJ? The answer is no. Do we have any more risk than before? Maybe, but Sweeny wasn't our friend. He would sell every one of us down the river for something he wanted.

    Here's an interesting discussion of this from The Federalist this morning: https://thefederalist.com/2021/11/08/6-things-we-just-learned-about-the-supreme-courts-gun-rights-case/ I particularly liked the part where NYS was trying to make the case that it was safer to have people carrying firearms in less populated areas than in denser areas, to which Justice Roberts quipped, "How many people get mugged in the woods?"

    The A2 flash hider has to go. Then you need to deal with the muzzle threads: Either get rid of them or cover them with a non-flash-hiding muzzle attachment or thread protector, either of which needs to be permanently attached so that the threads are no longer accessible by the prosecuting attorney and his monkeys. In addition, the entire bayonet lug (not just the ears) has to go. Then it will be NJ compliant (for the moment).

    It was a practical session in the psychology class. The professor showed a large cage with a male rat in it. The rat was in the middle of the cage. Then, the professor kept a piece of cake on one side and kept a female rat on the other side. The male rat ran towards the cake and ate it. Then, the professor changed the cake and replaced it with some bread. The male rat ran towards the bread. This experiment went on with the professor changing the food every time. And, every time, the male rat ran towards the food item and never towards the female rat. Professor asked the students : This experiment shows that food is the greatest strength and attraction, do you agree? Then, one of the students from the back rows said: "Sir, why don't you change the female rat? This one might be his wife!" The professor stood straight up his finger pointing towards the student and said "You got an A." ************************************************************************************************************************************** Political spin How the Government spins their bullshit !! Judy Wallman Biden, a professional genealogy researcher in South Dakota, was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that President Joe Biden’s great, great uncle, Remus Biden, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Texas in 1889. Both Judy and President Biden share this common ancestor. The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows in Galveston, Texas. On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: "Remus Biden horse thief, sent to Galveston State Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Galveston & Southern Flyer six times. Caught by Texas Rangers detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889." So Judy recently e-mailed the President for information about their great, great uncle, Remus and a few days ago President Biden's staff sent this response back: Remus Biden was a famous cowboy in Texas in the 1880s. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Galveston & Southern railroad. Beginning in 1885, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Texas Rangers. In 1889, Remus passed away suddenly during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed. Now THAT, Kids, is how it's done in politics! Oh c'mon..... you knew this would be funny half way through

    When the gay rights issue was decided, all the legal analysts cited the parallel to 2nd Amend and carry rights. The cop up my street retired and had his carry license right away, basically a rubber stamp, which remains a 14th Amendment violation.
