  1. Hi all.
    I am new with shotguns, never planned buying one, not a hunter either. But I recently tried trap shooting and I really liked it! And I found myself looking for a budget solution to get a 24"+ 12-gauge shotgun suitable for trap shooting. I came across the Turkish shotgun Omega S12S, which have an option for longer 28" barrel. I was told that it was a Benelli M2 clone.
    Do you think it is worth trying? The price was attractive about $230-250 plus shipping.

    Natchez had CCI 9mm for 33.7c/round shipped (including tax)...  but that sold out fast.

     

    Just went through 17 pages of 9mm ammo at their web page and there was no single item in stock. :cray:


  3. I usually buy my ammo locally, but with the inflated prices I just tried to look online. Unfortunately, I currently see no online retailer offering 9mm ammo. Any advise where to purchase the ammo these days?
    When I went to a shooting range in PA, they offered the only 9mm 50-round boxes for $45. It is almost a $ per round!!! Well, these were hollow points, but still crazy. :(

    During time NICS are open this site will tell you how many in queue and what day they're working on. 

    https://www.njportal.com/NJSP/NicsVerification

    I checked about an hour ago and it was 1083 in queue and working on Saturday as of 8:04am or something. 

    I see, you have to have an account there. Anyway, thanks for the info!
     

    Actually my gun arrives only tomorrow, I just came to start the paperwork earlier to speed things up. But it seems they have to process the package first, as, they have to have the gun in hands to start NICS, right? So if they start it on Thursday, it should be done by Saturday or Monday. Well, I was told: "most likely Tuesday" :(


  5. Thanks everyone for your input. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find anyone with current membership. The 5-round limit makes a little sense to me. Anyway, I will try to join, as it is so conveniently located. Honestly I was interested in using the indoor pistol range only. Let's see what happens.


  6. I received my FID and P2P today. Here is the timeline for the record:

    1. Application type: initial FID + P2P

    2. Police Department where you applied: Plainsboro PD

    3. Name of the person you dealt with at the PD: Leigh Ann Roberts

    4. Time taken to issue FID and/or permit: 50 days

    • June 2nd - Inital online application filled, FP scheduled
    • References completed within 24 hours
    • June 16th - Fingerprints done
    • June 19th - Criminal History Check completed
    • June 25th - Asked to add another P2P
    • June 26th - mailed the payment and SP66
    • July 20th - Application approved
    • July 22nd - FID and P2P picked up from PD

    5. Documents required by the PD (aside from the standard application and the mental health release form): SP66 form

    6. Notes - anything pertaining to the application process:

    • I originally applied for a single P2P, and I contacted later my PD via email and asked to add another P2P. They told me, no problem, just send us SP66 and the check for $9. Finally I received a single P2P, but was promised to get the other one a week later, because the Chief is away this week. Will update on that.

    Do you think the guys that work there work for free?  Rent and utilities free? Become a member and all that expensive stuff goes away,  and they have more perks for members than any one else.  Free gun rentals! Free transfers!  Free ammo!  Free gun cleaning! Go directly to the front of the line!  Lots more too! Read about membership.  It has it's privileges.  Plus you will become a member of the greatest range ever!

    I just think it could be more friendly to the newcomers (non-members).

    I got me fingerprints Scheduled pretty quick. I went back into the portal to see if I can reschedule and the dates they were offering were like 2 weeks later so I just kept my original date and after that I got my fid card in 2 weeks that will differ though. 

    My FP appointment was two weeks after the online application date. The lady doing FPs told me that I should get FID in three weeks from "today" (the day of FP). The week after I realized that I want an extra P2P, so I emailed the PD and they added another P2P request, no prob. But I was also told, that regardless the fact I was NJ resident for >10 years, I have to submit a hard copy of SP-66 to them together with a payment.

    I was also told that "normal processing times have slowed due to the pandemic" and "all applications are processed in the order in which they are received". So only the original application date matters, not the FP date.

    Sounds like your initial application was not done on the FARS system electronically. When i submitted my app, that was a check box for the sp-066. Your signing off for them to be able to do a mental health record search. The part you mentioned about  a doctor's signature. that would only be if they found something during their search. Or like me, i was honest as one should be and said I went to a shrink one time. in this day and age that should be a plus one is able to be intelligent enough to talk to someone after a major life event. I was having a heard time after my mother passed away. In any case, that is all that form is. If they do not find anything there is no need for those other signatures. 

    I did it on the FARS electronically. When I called them to add another P2P permit to the application, they told me that I don't have the SP66 in file and asked me to submit it together with the payment. So I did. Didn't give my PD a single visit as of today.

    My question is with form s p. 066 .It states on nj states police site you only have to complete that form if you were not living on nj  past 10 years.

    Where did you find this info? I looked all over njsp.org


  11. They asked me to send the SP-066 form, even I live in NJ (same county) for 20 years (8 years at the current address). So I filled the part One, made my wife to sign as a witness, and mailed it out. Does it have to go through all the steps? Looks like Part Two requires the signatures from County Adjusted and a Doctor.
    First of all why did they want it?

    I live between you and the river in Hopewell.  I've gone there a few times.  The owner is a friend of a former coworker of mine.  The worst part for me is driving through Trenton to get there.  Ha, ha, ha!

    Well you always can take Rt.95 to avoid it, but in this case it will be a detour.
