  1. I'm not a lawyer, so take this with a grain of salt. If the en banc review is successful (from the 2A perspective), and if the SCOTUS doesn't hear the case it would absolutely apply to 9th district, however, precedent being what it is, there will likely be standing (although no guarantees) in all other districts to bring similar cases where applicable. These districts would be district 2,3 and 4: California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and the District of Columbia all have 10 round magazine capacity restrictions. Practically speaking, this most certainly would be taken up by SCOTUS if the 3rd circuit case that the ANJRPC is bringing is ruled unfavorable to ANJRPC. The SCOTUS traditionally would take up cases where there is conflict between districts. So it seems likely that if this makes it through en banc, one way or another this is headed to SCOTUS.
  2. If you have a large group to cook for and want to splurge a bit, try smoking a whole strip loin. They are about 9 to 12 lbs and holy crap they taste good. I use a hickory / oak / apple blend for the smoke, get it up to about 114 degrees and then sear it on all sides on the grill or if your smoker has a sear burner, even better. For a rub I use a Roman pepper style blend (Basil, rosemary, black pepper, plenty of salt, little bit of red pepper) Make some horseradish cream for the side (horseradish + salt + mayo) Have been told was the best steak people ever had, and they’ve had some great steak.
  3. Yes I agree. JT is super responsive. Also would endorse Heritage Guild.

  5. Procedurally, from my understanding of the law, the way for this to apply in NJ would be for California to appeal, it goes to SCOTUS and they either Decline to hear it (meaning lower court stands and is Law of Land) or take the case and sides against California.
  6. Similar experience. Had an AR pinned etc and it wasn’t cheap. At the time though they were the only game in town. Tried getting in touch with Tier 1 Defense a bunch of times but he never responded. Seems like more smiths are available now vs peak COVID (April) when I had this work done
  7. Thanks. I found a company online that makes 20 rounders and sells them for about the same price as 10 round mags. https://stores.csspecs.com/savage-mk-ii-20rd/ I don’t think any other gun can take those mags. But might not be worth the trouble.
  8. Curious if anyone knows the answer to this. I have a Savage Mark II. As far as I can tell there is no semi-auto version of this, and the magazine for this gun only fits this series. Reading through several interpretations of the magazine limit laws in NJ, would imply that a 20rd magazine (which Savage makes) would be legal. is this just wishful thinking? Would love to get more capacity for my son who is learning to target shoot with this gun. thank you
  9. I agree that this is a big issue for us here in this state and to deal with all this taxes - local, county, state are inevitably going to go up (it’s our state pastime) and it’s going to be a mess for a while. Might quicken the pace of folks that are thinking about leaving, to go ahead and leave the state. We send so much more to feds and get very little in return there are so many great places to be especially if you are not able to keep up with the Joneses here. Overall I think work itself is restructuring and in some ways - and perhaps might balance out the above - NJ can benefit with high paid telecommuting jobs for people who will not want to be living in the major cities to the east and west of us. In our area and also where we have property upstate, real estate demand is huge right now. Homes and land are selling in no time at asking.
  10. 100% - there is so much pent up demand. Businesses that can spend money and hire (eg have demand) are still hiring. It’s painful but we’ll get back to productivity once we build up some consistency and especially once vaccines and rapid, accurate testing become available.
  11. Yes that is exactly the intent of the law, regardless of how hard it would be to prove in the case of 3D printing a screw vs buying one already manufactured. It’s pretty clear - if you use a 3D printer to make any component of a firearm, you break the law in NJ. Lets hope this is as far as they go. In NY there is legislation pending that would ban the act of assembly itself (3D printer or not) unless you are a licensed gunsmith
  12. At the range itself, not really. The picnic tables were still closed off as of last week. If they don’t want to shoot with you, there are some great trails nearby outside of the range lands. Check out this trail on AllTrails. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/new-jersey/cherry-ridge-extended-loop Note that cell phones don’t work well at all at the range, in my experience at least.
  13. Welcome! I just bought an M17 as well, it’s at the FFL now waiting for NICS.
  14. Awesome I rented one of those green bags to help sight my AR. One thing I did notice that even with "COVID distance" between tables, it was loud. There was a dude with a pretty nice Remington 700 .308 and it went boom quite a bit. My ear muffs are tough on the cheek weld so a few times they weren't on so good and even with backup soft plugs, it was loud. Anyone use any specific brand of plugs or muffs that don't sacrifice cheek weld?
