  1. I have to admit, that's one of the coolest things that I've ever seen . . . But, I always replaced that gasket when changing oil on my own cars . . .
  2. What you CAN do depends on what you WANT to do . . . I wouldn't tolerate the treatment for a P2P. You've already been vetted and you will be vetted again with your NICS check once you get the permit. The chief is just sitting on your permit. There's no reason. Contact the mayor . . . A friendly member of council anyone else that you like. If we keep putting up with this crap we will continue to get more of it.

    +P+ 9mm

    As noted, it's a standard engineering issue of "how much, how often" . . . I had a BMW 530 that would ping with anything less than 93 octane gas. If one of my kids put a tank of regular in it, the pistons didn't burn right through. I'd start topping the tank off with some premium until the pinging stopped. There was never any damage done. At the same time, I just don't see any reason for +P much less +P+ . . . My father gave me a bucket of .38SP a year ago and I unloaded all of the +P rounds but I was putting them through an old Colt revolver.
  4. I hadn't heard this about Bob . . . It's not the most convenient shops or ranges for me and I've only been there once. I guess I won't be back.
  5. I once read that the average police involved shootout took place at less than 10 feet, 30 rounds were fired and no one was injured. That was when one side was an LEO! In Blackwood, NJ, police of all levels (city and state) fired 130 rounds into a bank where a suspect was hold up. They hit him once in the ass. It's really hard to shoot under pressure but this shows that if you can bear down and concentrate for just a few seconds, you can come out on top in the battle.
  6. True but even that was October 19 so we are looking at three weeks and CHPD could have sat on the permits after I made the payment.
  7. Well . . . I filled out the online app the middle of October. Then my father went into the hospital and passed away. I didn't go to the police station and drop off my $6 check until Monday, November 1. At 6AM on November 4, I received an email that my permits were approved. This was in Democrat controlled Cherry Hill, NJ . . .
  8. Once again, he tosses out the "85% of seized guns come from out of state" which simply proves that his laws are not working because criminals don't care about them. But, what of the other 15%? How many are purchased legally here? How many are the result of straw purchases? How many are stolen? How do ten round magazine limits make me safer? How does not having an adjustable stock on an AR (or other gun) make me safer? Why is a welded compensator safer than one that is simply screwed on with some LockTite? These are the questions that need to be asked of our governor and our legislature.

    At under $700! When stock is available, this will be on my short list.

    Thanks gang . . . I hadn't looked at ammo yet (Can't tell you why!) but you have slacked my interest some . . .

    OK . . . How about opinions from people who HAVEN"T tried them . . . It's not like this forum to not have an opinion!
  12. I'll need to check on my e-permits and see if they are still open . . . But, I'm interested! I'll let you know.
  13. I carry a back back when I travel . . . My "modern" life usually requires a laptop or tablet, phone charger, headphones and other things that would get me strange looks if I stuffed them in my pockets.

    Is anybody shooting any of the 5.7x28 handguns? Should I want one? Or, is it just that it's new and unusual that makes want it?
  15. It is . . . But, the ATF isn't really interested in PA, NJ, NY or CT laws and the states can get away with more than the federal government can. But, this is really a show piece. They aren't going to accomplish anything except getting some press.
  16. Just a note . . . In both of the cases here, I believe that the gun must have been legally purchased even if out of state or prior to NJ's gun law growth. How you would prove, or the government disprove, that after 50 years is another story.

  18. I just did this a little over a year ago, Mount Laurel to Cherry Hill. Yes, you have to go online and fill out the same form. There a box that you check indicating that it's an address change and you will include the number from you current card. You don't actually go through the whole process. Even during Covid, mine took about a week.
  19. Yes! Also make sure to let them know once you sign the online form. I've had references get their email within an hour and respond just as quickly. If they know when it's coming, it will not get buried in their inbox.
  20. So, that limits the type of gun safe you want to look for. I would keep a personal protection weapon in a safe in a closet. You likely want something with a biometric lock (there one for sale here on the forums!) so that you can access it quickly. You're also going to want several extra magazines. Personally, I keep THAT weapon in my nightstand drawer (there are no kids in the house) with two magazines of hollow points that STAY in the drawer. I don't take those magazines to the range. There are also usually a couple of magazines with range ammo in there. So . . . I guess I'm saying that you should buy several 10 round magazines. Of course, if the administration in Trenton changes and I win my assembly seat, you may be able to buy larger capacity mags . . . We'll see . . .
  21. I didn't see anyone else ask, so I will pose two questions: First, is your intended purchase a handgun, shotgun or rifle? Second, what is the purpose of the purchase? These two questions will have an impact on what else you need. Particularly, gun storage.
  22. As I understand it, Ciattarelli would be happy to have "shall issue" in NJ. His talk about permits for "certain professions" is something that he will try to push through a Democrat controlled legislature as a "foot-in-the-door" along with repeal of the magazine limits. He has said, very clearly, many times, that a Republican legislature puts everything on the table.
