  1. Check www.palmettoarms.com . . . Some of the Sigs go under $100 regularly.  I tried to go cheap, off of Amazon, for a while but didn't find anything that was worth $20.  The dots aren't bright enough and they don't hold zero very well.

  2. My father had one from Liberty.  Delivery will be $300-550 or so depending on where in the house you want the safe.  Stairs cost more.  They charge about the same to move it to my sister's after my dad passed away.  \

    This past weekend, I bought a great safe from BJ's, on sale, for less than $500.  Right next door to BJ's, I rented a 15' truck and appliance dolly from U-Haul.  Two guys from BJ's helped to get it in the truck and my girlfriend and I got it off and into the garage.  It would have been tough for us to get it into the basement but we could have done it.  I have more space in my garage and a smaller safe in the bedroom so I'm not worried about access for home security.  

    DM me if you want to know more.  The same may end today but you can check with them about buying and pickup in a few days.

    Who makes the rules about debates? The Board of Elections?

    No.  The candidates negotiate the dates, times and rules for debates unless somebody like the DAR or another organization sets it up and invites candidate.  But, that is usually for primaries.  

    Yes, candidates with a lead in the polls want the debate as late as possible because if you are already ahead, the debate can only hurt or be neutral for you.  In the current crop, the Democrats are pushing for the latest possible data because they don't want their stances on some issues to be exposed to daylight until AFTER their base has cast their ballots.  I've been hoping that at some point, voters will realie this and begin voting later and/or limiting early voting.

    f I go to another shop I can just pick up a gun and handle at my discretion (or when it's handed to me if behind a case)...

    Well . . . It's pretty easy to say, go to another shop.  But, again, having been behind the counter, I can see the reasons.  Thefts are high and people aren't stealing $5000 Stacatto 2011 . . . They are stealing Glocks and others that are easy to move on the street.

    You're complaining a shop here.  Go talk to THEM and see why the rules are in place.  Or, go somewhere else. 

  5. By the way . . . This was the DC Appeals Court, and I just barely give a shit how they rule.  Almost every one of these cases is going to have to go to SCOTUS for the time being.  That MAY change in the future but, for now, it just one more reason to work toward turning the votes of your friends and families.

    "I support the second amendment, but ..."

    That's not what I said . . . I specifically said, "I abhor any new restrictions . . . '

    My point with the bump stocks is that they are so ineffective that it's hard to give a crap.

    Wouldn't they be in the driver's seat on this until the legislators write a new law with different direction?

    As I said, they are the ones who are ISSUING the permits.  That's just great, right?  Well, it is until you are forced to use your gun.  Then the lawyers get involved.  If you trust the lawyers, then that SP issued permit will be perfect.

  8. The instructor that I know says that he hasn't seen anything from the AG to indicate that this is the case so he still includes the make, model and serial number from the weapon that you use to qualify.

    He also points out that he has talked to several lawyers who have suggested that you should qualify with each gun that you expect to carry.  This way, if involved in a shooting you won't have to listen to some local prosecutor argue that you were not qualified with the gun that you used.  

    Remember, the PD are the ones approving the permits but the attorneys are the ones who will be looking at the shootings.

    Just throwin' it out there . . .

  9. Last week, I was at a gun club talking to an experienced NRA instructor.  We were discussing carry guns and he pointed out that NJ doesn't actually have "concealed" carry licenses.  We just have "carry" licenses.  In terms of the discussion we were talking about imprinting or having a holster show when you bend over to tie your shoes.  

    Did I miss something in the discussion?  Because he was talking like you can, with the license, carry open on your hip.

  10. Damn it!

    Over the 4th weekend, I lost my wallet.  Long story, don't want to go into it but my FID was in there.

    Yesterday, I filled out the stinking application to replace my card and included a few P2P requests.

    One of my references hasn't gotten his email and the other has.  I may have made a mistake with his email address.  Is there a way that I can correct the mistake or shorten the extra time that this is now going to take?

    I hate making simple mistakes . . .
