    The Book Report Students at a local school were assigned to read two books, 'Titanic' & 'My Life' by Bill Clinton. One student turned in the following book report, with the proposition that they were nearly identical stories! His cool professor gave him an A+ for this report. Titanic: cost - $29.99 Clinton: cost - $29.99 Titanic: Over 3 hours to read Clinton: Over 3 hours to read Titanic: The story of Jack and Rose, their forbidden love, and subsequent catastrophe. Clinton: The story of Bill and Monica, their forbidden love, and subsequent catastrophe. Titanic: Jack is a starving artist. Clinton: Bill is a bullshit artist. Titanic: In one scene, Jack enjoys a good cigar. Clinton: Ditto for Bill. Titanic: During the ordeal, Rose's dress gets ruined. Clinton: Ditto for Monica. Titanic: Jack teaches Rose to spit. Clinton: Let's not go there. Titanic: Rose gets to keep her jewelry Clinton: Monica is forced to return her gifts. Titanic: Rose remembers Jack for the rest of her life. Clinton: Clinton remembers Monica for the rest of his life. Titanic: Rose goes down on a vessel full of seamen. Clinton: Monica...ooh, let's not go there, either. Titanic: Jack surrenders to an icy death. Clinton: Bill goes home to Hilary - basically the same thing.

    I’m an outlaw. This is my confession. I will willfully break NJ Law, and I am unrepentant! Specifically, I will violate the upcoming ban on single-use plastic bags. Like all dog owners, I recycle grocery store plastic bags exactly once. The upcoming ban on bags was going to pose a problem. My preferred solution of letting my dog poop on Murphy’s lawn a couple of times a day is impractical, due to distance. Instead, I ordered a year’s supply of grocery-store plastic bags from out-of-state. I wanted to get them in ahead of the May 4 ban, since our AG’s office has already demonstrated they have nothing better to do than send threatening letters to out-of-state vendors demanding they stop selling otherwise legal products to NJ residents. Fortunately, my contraband slipped past the postal inspectors and made it to my house. Apparently, the Post Office is not yet employing polyethylene-sniffing dogs. The State Police have not yet descended on my home to make an example of me. After May 4, I can grab a handful of bags to take with me whenever I go to the store, then bring them home and relegate them to dog doodie. I like to think that when future history books write of significant acts of civil disobedience, mine will be included. Perhaps in a new Top 5 list! · The Sons of Liberty boarding ships and throwing chests of tea into Boston Harbor · Mohandas Gandhi’s Salt March · Rosa Parks’ refusal to move to the back of the bus · Student protester blocking a tank column at Tiananmen Square · 10X’s purchase of plastic bags for dog waste ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ!

    MY GREAT WEEKEND! A balding, white haired man from Sherman Oaks in California , walked into a jewelry store in a local mall this past Friday evening with a beautiful much younger gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.' At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. 'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000' the jeweler said. The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.' The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, 'by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick up the ring Monday afternoon.' On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said 'There was only $25 in your account.' 'I know, said the old man, 'But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!'

    I received the following picture and text in an email this week. I thought it made some interesting points. However I also removed the trailing political commentary. My interest is in the rifle. A hundred and fourteen years ago, in 1907...our great grandparents were first able to buy the rifle pictured. The semi-auto Winchester Model 1907. This is a gun they could buy from a Sears catalogue and have delivered via US Post. It was/ is a semi-automatic, high powered centerfire rifle, with detachable, high capacity magazine. About 400,000 semi-automatic rifles were produced before WW2. Civilians had hundreds of thousands of these for 40 years, while US soldiers were still being issued old fashioned bolt action rifles. The 1907 fired just as fast as an AR15 or AK47 and the bullet (.351 Winchester) was actually larger than those fired by the more modern looking weapons. The ONLY functional difference between the 1907 and a controversial and much feared AR15 is the modern black plastic stock. The semi-auto so-called "assault rifle" is 114 years old. It isn't new in any way. The semi auto rifle was not a weapon of war. The government MADE IT a weapon of war 40 years after civilians had them. The semi-auto can be safely owned by civilians. The proof is that literally 3 generations of adults owned and used them responsibly and no one ever even noticed.

    Let's put this MYTH to rest, FOREVER & RIGHT NOW! You may or may not be aware, so for those that AREN'T here goes: I transport weapons registered to a man that's been DEAD since 1982! Upon my father's passing, my mother laid his entire modest collection out on display on the dinning room table for her three offspring to divvy-up. NO PAPERWORK! Cause that's how it was done back then! Am I supposed to go dig them both up (Mom died in '95) and ask them where's the P2P's? I've been "behind the trigger" for nearly half a century. The totality of what I've done and what I know could make a good book. And OPEN LOTS OF EYES to the self-inflicted harassments we continually endure from those that THINK they "know" things...the big one being applying FOPA interstate transport regulations to intrA-state (within NJ) transportation. The fact is the current law doesn't even say that your Yellow Card has to be IN YOUR POSSESSION, it merely states you have to be granted one to be in compliance of the exception / exemption you're transporting under.... ~R

    Just wondering. Are there folks out there that would like to go to a reloading class. Just the basics. Like set up powder charges. How to set up your dies. So when the next plandemic happens you’re not paying triple what you should be. Ive been blessed over the years to know people that have this knowledge. And i have acquired this knowledge from them. Just curious. How many of yall would be interested. Free of charge for the first class. If you are really in shooting and know its a sustainable multi year thing you’ll do. Would you be interested in our multitude years of experience that we can transfer to the next generation? Let me know.

    There is no NJ statute that defines a knife by size. If you carry a knife every day you just need an explainable lawful purpose. There is no limit to what lawful purpose you use, so long is it is not self defense. My knife is used to open boxes frequently and there is tape residue on it which could be proof if it is ever challenged. Your knife has a seat belt cutting blade at the back of the handle - perfectly lawful in case of emergency.

    Courtesy of my email. I was at the mall yesterday and walked into the book store. I asked if they had Trump's new book on how to deport illegal aliens. The clerk said "Get the fuck out of here and don't come back!". And I replied "Yes, that's the one. Do you have it in paperback?".

    After 17 years moved to sunny Florida - goodbye forever to: pinned muzzle brakes, pinned stocks, 10 round magazines, NJFIC, once a month handgun purchase and handgun purchase permits, prohibited AW list, prohibited SBR, Mr. Murphy, Mr. Grewal and anybody like them.... I can't believe how I put up with all that cr*p for so long. I am going to miss Cherry Ridge. My empathy to NJ gun owners - keep up the fight. Roger and out.

    My grandfather, who I was named after, was born in Paris, Arkansas. I’m honestly not sure what year. I never paid much attention to that sort of thing. It was somewhere around 1920. He moved to St. Louis and met my grandmother, a second-generation Italian. They conceived my father in 1941 and my grandfather shipped off in the Army before he was born. Although his military records were lost in a fire, we know a little bit. He was a radio operator in the infantry. He was in North Africa, Sicily and Italy which means that he may have served under General Patton. We don’t know. When the war in Europe ended, he was marching through northern Italy toward Berlin with the intention of finishing the job. After Hitler committed suicide in his bunker, my grandfather turned toward the French coast with orders to get on a ship and head to the South Pacific to help finish off the Japanese. Before he boarded the ship, Truman authorized the dropping of two atomic bombs on major Japanese cities and the Japanese surrendered soon thereafter. My grandfather still climbed on board the ship but this time it was to bring him to the United States. Ships and trains brought him back to his wife and child in St. Louis. My father was now three years old and remembers meeting his father for the first time. Seeing him walk down an alley, still in uniform, carrying his duffle bag. Sixty plus years later, my son (also named after my grandfather) and I stood at the same spot, in the same alley in St. Louis talking to my father on the phone. The third and the fourth talking to Junior where he first met Senior. After the war, my grandfather worked for RCA in St. Louis. He used to talk about having built a projection TV in the late 1940’s. They used to test it at night by projecting images on the GE building across the street. He also said that it probably produced so many X-Rays that it wasn’t safe to be in the room with it. RCA took him and his family from St. Louis, to Jackson, Mississippi, to Albuquerque, New Mexico installing radio towers. They had two more kids a long the way. My Aunt Betty and my Uncle Fred. Their last move took them to Somerdale, New Jersey in 1954. He worked at RCA’s broadcast division in Camden until he retired in the mid-1980’s. Their fourth child, my Uncle Dave was born in 1960. Just 10 months before I was born myself. My grandfather went to work every day. Took his family on long vacations around the country and filled the family room in his house with books about World War II. He also had a penchant for Southern Comfort and obscene limericks at family gatherings. Usually after the young ones went to sleep. He never talked about the war with anybody in the family. Maybe with some of his contemporaries but we don’t know. One of my great regrets is that I never sat down and made him tell me about the war. What he saw there and what he did there. He passed away in 1994. I was 33 years old and should have known better. I’m sure that some in my family could correct things in this story but this is the way that I remember it so this is the way that I tell it. I always cry when I tell this story and this time isn’t any different. We all have great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and other family members who have served. We all have our stories and our memories. I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and, most of all, thoughtful, Memorial Day weekend. Remember it isn’t all burgers, dogs and parades. It’s much more.

    Therefore, we should shut down the rail lines so people don't throw themselves in front of NJ Transit trains. We should also stop selling rope at hardware / home improvement stores so that people don't hang themselves. We should stop selling vehicles that spew CO2 into the air so that people don't run their car in their closed garage to end it all. Let's stop selling pills as well. It's not the instrument, it's the intent. Please go back into hiding and stay there. I'd use stronger language, but having already been scolded for mocking you cost me with the mods.

    Greetings to all of the Debbie Downers & Doubting Thomas's here on the Board! And greetings to the Lurkers and everyone else that reads and doesn't post for fear of finger pointing by armchair experts & commandos living in their mom's basement. Did I piss-off EVERYBODY yet? No? Then please keep reading, lol! This Bill is designed to start a conversation among Legislators, NOT give us Constitutional Carry. For that reason, it might make it to the Law & Public Safety Committee of the Senate. While there it can be altered & amended as needed to conform to Bruen if we get a positive outcome at SCOTUS. The Bill is far from perfect in its current form. Your Second Amendment Advocates KNOW this! Our rights will be won back incrementally, just as they were taken away. I'm on the Senator's Advisory Panel with Anthony Colandro, Theresa Inacker, and Mark Cheeseman. What's missing from this thread is the "Call To Action" that's needed to get the Bill co-sponsored. So instead of doing the usual bitchin' about face-value imperfections and plain-text readings, how about calling or sending a letter to your district Legislators asking them to co-sign the Bill, eh? Or is it too hard to quit bitchin' and actually DO SOMETHING TO HELP? https://www.njleg.state.nj.us/districts Rosey

    As an Xmas present to myself, I picked up a Garand from Dave (15636215), the purchase was great, Dave is a pleasure to sit and chat with. Picked up a spam can of Greek surplus 30-06 Garand ammo and the gun and ammo sat for 2 1/2 months, hate when life gets in the way, but today we all went to the range, by the third shot I was on target. I have shot 30-30 deer hunting, 5.56 in my AR, semiauto 12 gauge, but this was my first 30-06, my grin was from ear to ear for 20 minutes while shooting. A couple things that I wasn’t expecting were, the rifle is lighter than I had imagined, the sights are a pleasure to use, the kick is no where near what I was expecting, and man is it loud, not that sharp clap from an AR, more like a throaty ST Bernard bark. If you have been lusting for some nostalgia and have said, I would like a Garand, buy one, you will not regret it. Thanks Dave

    As I mentioned in another thread, we bought a condo in Florida a couple of years ago, and have started spending some time down here. We have not become residents yet, but still are able to enjoy a taste of life in a free state with Covid sanity and everyday concealed carry. Yesterday I purchased the Zastava Arms ZPAP M70 for which I have been lusting. Bought it online from Atlantic Firearms and had it shipped to a local dealer. When I went over to pick it up, he asked me for my DL and Florida CCW permit (if I had one). I filled out a 4473 and a few minutes later, he said, "You're all set." Holy crap! No waiting days for an "instant" background check requiring a return trip to the dealer. In just minutes I was able to walk out with my new beauty. While I was there, a fellow walked in and asked to look at a handgun. He checked it out for a few minutes, then said, "OK, I'll take it." Same deal for him: DL, Florida CCW, 4473, and out the door in a few minutes with the gun. I should note that with the ready availability of guns in Florida, contrary to the hysterical fears of legislators in states like New Jersey, not only do legal gun owners not run around shooting each other, one rarely (like, never) even sees a gun. All that aside, the weather here has been great, the people warm and welcoming. On days when it's a little cooler, with temperatures in the mid-60's, when we can't sit by the pool or go to the beach, the weather is perfect for golf, pickle ball, running and working out, or just hanging out. Unfortunately, we have to leave "The Matrix" next week to return to Jersey for six weeks in the middle of winter, for some weddings and other family events. But we get to look forward to returning in mid-March for another 6-8 weeks. If any of you are down this way, be sure to say hi!

    I’ve posted this before, but it is a good reminder: GUN STORE EMPLOYEES ARE NOT PAID OR TRAINED TO GIVE YOU LEGAL ADVICE!! I repeat - GUN STORE EMPLOYEES ARE NOT PAID OR TRAINED TO GIVE YOU LEGAL ADVICE!! Do not rely on gun store employees to keep you out of jail, or to interpret laws for you. They are there to take your money and walk you through some paperwork. Heed their advice at your own risk. They are paid to sell guns and keep the shop out of trouble - NOT YOU. They are not required to have any training or certification in NJ or Federal laws past what is required to take your money, get you through NICS, and get you out the door. There are some good ones that are knowledgeable. It is up to you to vet them, and decide if they are trustworthy. Take legal advice from competent and reputable lawyers*. Preferably one well versed in NJ gun laws. * Yes, that includes taking advice from well meaning members on online Gun Forums as well. Yes, that includes what I wrote above. I am not a lawyer. Accept what I said above at your own risk. If you don’t know, research what you learned and vet what you hear/read here and elsewhere (which sounds exactly like what you are doing. Kudos!) That being said, Krdshark is correct. You are right. They are wrong. (Except for any restrictions on firearms on certain properties - for example a military base)

    This is a Israeli Police HP that I got in for myself, and wanted to refurb it - before, after's and trigger work. Didn't like the spur hammer and changed it to the ring hammer. Polished the trigger bar contact area on the frame, shortened and re-profiled the trigger bar tip and polish engagement area. Cleaned up the sear engagement area and polished. Polished the sear spring contact point in the spring and the sear. Polished the trigger bar contact locations for sear, frame sides and trigger bar contact point Added a stronger trigger return spring... You can see the take-up, till the trigger bar sits perfectly against the sear lever, a clean break with no overtravel and then a smooth audible and felt reset. No hammer push off and no hammer follow.

    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!

    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!

    We’re just over two weeks away from the torch lighting ceremony, so it’s time to introduce the US Team least likely to turn their back on the flag or kneel during the national anthem. Our 2020/2021 Olympians are: Men’s Air Rifle: Lucas Kozeniesky, William Shaner Women’s Air Rifle: Mary Tucker, Ali Weisz Men’s Smallbore Rifle: Patrick Sunderman, Nick Mowrer Women’s Smallbore Rifle: Mary Tucker, Sagen Maddalena Men’s Air Pistol: Nick Mowrer, James Hall Women’s Sport Pistol: Alexis Lagan, Sandra Uptagrafft Rapid Fire Pistol: Henry Leverett, Jackson Leverett Men’s Skeet: Vincent Hancock, Phillip Jungman Women’s Skeet: Austen Smith, Amber English Men’s Trap: Derrick Mein, Brian Burrows Women’s Trap: Kayle Browning, Madelynn Bernau US Olympic Shooting Team I’m struck by how long it’s been since I was on the team (and then not in an Olympic year). I don’t know any of these people… Unfortunately, none of our medalists from the 2016 Rio games are back on the roster. The most experienced competitor on the team is Vincent Hancock, in his 4th Olympics, having won the gold twice before. Kim Rhode missed the cut to compete in an unprecedented 7th Olympiad (having medaled in the previous 6 Olympics). She has stated she’ll be back for the 2024 trials, and may continue on to the tryouts for the 2028 games in Los Angeles. Nick Mowrer is notable for being the first US shooter to qualify in two different disciplines (rifle and pistol) in the same Olympics since 1924. Also of note are brothers Henry and Jackson Leverett, both competing in Rapid Fire Pistol. I sure hope they are on good terms with one another. 280 shooters from other nations will join Team USA to compete in 15 events, though all without spectators due to a Covid resurgence in the Tokyo area: 10m Air Pistol - Men 10m Air Pistol - Women 10m Air Pistol - Mixed Team 25m Pistol - Women 25m Rapid Fire Pistol - Men 10m Air Rifle - Women 10m Air Rifle - Men 10m Air Rifle - Mixed Team 50m Rifle 3 Positions - Women 50m Rifle 3 Positions – Men Shotgun Skeet - Women Shotgun Skeet - Men Shotgun Trap - Women Shotgun Trap - Men Shotgun Trap - Mixed Team The mixed team events are new this year. Men and women competed together in all events until 1988, when separate events for men and women were created. Now, the separate events remain, but a mixed-gender team event has been added. Conspicuously absent from the event list is 50m Free Pistol. THAT makes me mad. Free Pistol had not only been a medal event since the inception of the modern Olympics, it had been the FIRST medal event, as way back in 1896, Baron Pierre de Coubertin (father of the modern games) declared Free Pistol to be the most difficult of the Olympic events, and so reserved it that place of honor. I really hate to see it go. That was MY event, dammit! Well, that and Air Pistol, but I was better at Free Pistol. Tokyo Olympics Shooting Preview The shooting events start with Air Rifle and Air Pistol on Saturday July 24, and continue through Monday August 2 when Rapid Fire Pistol and 3 Position Smallbore Rifle wrap up. You won't see much of these in the TV coverage, but you can find them in the online video feeds. I'll also pop in here periodically to post results.

    It's been fun---but---its time to go--hello Fl and Palm Beach County. We have had enough of NJ's insane and ever increasing property taxes, municipal assessments, income tax, sales tax, internet market facilitator tax, business taxes, etc--with really no end in sight. I have also had enough of NJ's constant passage of anti-gun laws which makes a difficult situation even more difficult. I expect even further restrictions in NJ in the future. I do see right to carry relief from the Supremes in 22-23 but even then it will be years before it is fully implemented here--because NJ will simply enact expansive laws applying the sensitive place doctrine where carry will be prohibited I do wish all of you the best and do intend to check in from time to time to see what's happening. Steve
