  1. Yup, a cheap holster that you weapon falls out of is pretty useless! Most holsters work great when calmly moving around but when you may need to draw, that situation may be far from calm!
  2. Thanks! I dont see the Sec9 on their site but I will reach out.
  3. Hi All, I hope everyone is well in these crazy times! Im looking for a decent OWB holster for my Ruger Sec9. Leather preferred for comfort but I know plastic/kydex may offer a more secure fit. Looking for suggested brands/retailers/good experiences. A source of a good shoulder holster would also be appreciated! Thanks! -Twism
  4. Thanks for the replies!
  5. So I guess by the previous responses I can also shoot buckshot through my shotgun with a modified choke?
  6. Not to hijack the topic but how do people like their PCs? I’ve shot 9mm carbines before and enjoyed them so thinking of adding one to the collection. I have a Sec9 and since it takes the same mags I figure this one is a good choice.

    Who Shoots a SKS

    My buddy has a bunch of land overrun with deer (like the rest of NJ) so I might tag along with him one year and try and get one. My biggest draw back to hunting was always the task of dragging the deer out of the woods, cleaning it and butchering it. If I hunt with him he will take care of that for me in exchange for getting rid of extra deer.

    Who Shoots a SKS

    I most likely will. Im an avid fisherman and supporter of all outdoor activities so a throwing a few extra bucks at NJF&W is always good. I have nothing against hunting either, just never appealed to me. I also let all my fish go...

    Who Shoots a SKS

    That would be a close local option however I dont hunt and the sign says you must have a hunting license to use the range.

    Who Shoots a SKS

    Hi all, Getting back into shooting so that means cleaning off my SKS. Do any of the indoor ranges that I may go to, TTC or RTSP, allow shooting 7.62 indoors? Also, as far as ive checked the bayonet is still legal in NJ. I have no modifications, still an internal mag, etc. Who else has one and shoots it on the regular? I dont think mine has went bang in 10+ years. http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m265/twism86/photo2-2.jpg
  11. A Beretta I was looking at came with 3 as well.
  12. There are plenty of good bass lakes in NJ but the issue is access. Few have good shoreline access so if you dont have a boat you are very limited. I do most of my bass fishing in the Poconos
  13. Im good for 1 or 2 a year..... Its all my right foots fault. When driving with a firearm, small child, good craft beer, etc I tone it way down.
  14. Thank you for the reply! I am a fisherman so I always have my fishing license on me. I am not a hunter though. I belong the the NRA and will likely support other organizations in the future as well. I wouldnt say I am advertising my intentions as much as asking about whether an action is possible. Either way, that action was asked by "Twism86" which is not synonymous with my real identity, SS#, address, etc..... I beleive along the lines of "its better to ask for forgiveness than permission" but in this state in regard to firearms laws, thats a losing battle I dont want to have to fight.
  15. My mother made the world's best meat loaf anyway.... Also, Taylor Ham is the correct term, good on you!
  16. I will look into that as well! Not selling ammo or renting guns isnt a problem for me.
  17. Hi Everyone, New member but already made my first post in the NJ Laws forum trying to clear up for transport questions. New handgun owner but not new to shooting. Grew up shooting with my family and in Boy Scouts. Currently have a Ruger Sec9, Norinco SKS and a Mossberg 500. I probably enjoy trap shooting the most, even though I have a cheap shotgun... Actually all my firearms are kind of cheap, buy hey, they work! I dont have a "home" range but im pretty much equidistant from both RTSP ranges and TTC. I wouldnt call shooting a big hobby of mine right now as I dont get out as much as I would like but thats only because I find shooting pieces of paper in a concrete building rather boring and good trap ranges are hard to find. Has anyone been to the Chester Game Association trap range? Its only 35 mins from me so once it warms up im hoping to give that a shot. Im envious of people who live outside of NJ or have enough property to be able to shoot outside at more "fun" targets. Im a big fisherman and love trout and bass fishing. Trout in NJ and bass at my place in the Poconos. I actually run a small forum myself for trout fishing in NJ. Tom
  18. Im SOL in regard to being legally able to drive to work with my handgun locked in a car and locked in a case, go to the range after work and then go home. Going back home after work and then to the range will eat up a lot of time but in the Socialist Republic of NJ thats what I have to do..... Its a bummer because I dont see myself going to the range on weekends much so weekdays are the best option for me.
  19. Do you need to have a valid hunting license to shoot there? I thought I read something about that. I would love to be able to dust of my SKS and shoot a few over there. Also, are there target holders available? Edit: I see its bold on the sign that someone posted. Bummer.......
  20. Thanks. My pistol is the primary reason for this question so I guess im SOL.
  21. Hi Everyone, New to the forum and a new pistol owner. Grew up shooting with my father. I finally got my FID now that I live in town that didnt make it too much of a hassle. I drive a hatchback and dont have a "proper" trunk. I have a single pistol locking case that I leave in the trunk and put my ammo in a box on the floor of the back seat. So far everyone has told me this is perfectly fine as the gun is locked, unloaded and I cant reach it. Do I have to lock the ammo box as well? For my rifle and shotgun, the case is too long to allow my to keep it in the trunk, it has to go in my backseat or I need to fold a seat down. What is the best way to stay legal with this? Especially because if I do get pulled over this case will be visible to the officer unlike the pistol that he wont even know is there (and I assume I dont have to declare unless asked). I do have a trigger lock and a cable lock I can use on either the rifle or shotgun. My next question is in reference to this document: https://www.state.nj.us/oag/dcj/agguide/transporting-firearms_guide.pdf So far everyone has told me that when transporting firearms I must go directly to and from my home to the range, and from the range to my home. No stops. This document says there are some reasonable stops allow that are on route, such as, gas, food, passengers, etc. Am I allowed to pick up a friend and transport them and and their firearm to the range as well? Also, this bit "A person may transport a firearm from.... between his dwelling and his place of business" does this mean I can transport the firearm from home, to work, to the range and then to home? My best option for a range is considerably closer to work and going home after work, then back tracking to the range makes it a PITA. I will do what keeps me legal but I am wondering if these exceptions apply. Ok, final question. I have a friend with 30+ acres and he shoots on his land for hunting, sighting in, etc. The law allows you to carry on your own private property. I watch his house and property every so often while is on vacation and that also means tending to his land while he is away. If given expressed written permission to use firearms on his property while it is in my care am I allowed to use my firearms for target shooting and carry my pistol while on his (bear laden) property. He does have neighbors that would know when he away and if they heard shots may be concerned. Should a LEO show up and question me, I would need to know I am in the right. Thanks in advance for the help!! Glad to join to forum. T
