  1. About the same for my Utah renewal, except I apparently snuck in not long before the video requirement.
  2. Agreed that we need to set priorities. I wasn't trying to say otherwise.
  3. Exactly. Conflating one's enthusiasm for one's own use of a particular firearm, or firearms feature, with the degree of one's opposition to an unconstitutional ban on it, is dangerous and self-defeating, and not just for the person holding that view. There was a guy in my qualification session yesterday who told me thathe thought that constitutional carry, and the ease of obtaining a carry permit for New Hampshire (as I described to him), is "nuts". In my opinion, that particular guy is an elitist. I have very little patience for the stance of supporting a constitutional right only as, and to the extent, that the supporter is prepared to enjoy it. I also regard the guy as a potential "enemy within" (that would depend on whether he could be reasoned out of his opinions, which I did not have the opportunity to do).
  4. I hope this trooper's reply is 100% trustworthy. He was suspended for 45 days in the last half of 2020 for entering false information into some state system: OAG State of New Jersey Major Discipline Reporting June 15, 2020 to December 31, 2020 pg 91 Trooper Mark Campagna Terminated: No Demoted: No Suspended: Yes # of Days Suspended: 45 Description: Member admitted to acting in an official capacity to the discredit of the Division while onduty by knowingly entering inaccurate and false information into the eDaily system I was unable to find a description of the "eDaily system" so cannot comment on how serious the infraction was, or whether there is any potential crossover to the answer under discussion. Maybe being assigned to Firearms Investigation Unit was his post-suspension punishment, and he is taking pains to be scrupulously accurate as a result. Let's hope so.
  5. I think a good question is how many Superior court justices will outright reject applications that they don't want to honor, and how many will exhaust every possible excuse to delay and stonewall, citing "lack of guidance" (like some PDs are doing) and/or playing application tennis with prosecutors' offices, and other such subterfuge. Outright rejection has a straightfoward remedy (appeal). Dealing with delaying tactics and obfuscation would be somewhat more nebulous.
  6. Is that 3 weeks from your original submission, or 3 weeks from submitting a new qualification after your existing certificate (for a handgun safety class iirc) was deemed inadequate. Just curious.
  7. You can call my number for that if you'd like. I won't answer a number that isn't in my contacts, and if I can't match the number for a missed call by web search to something legit that interests me, the next stop is my block list and my provider's spam registry :)
  8. Thanks. I did intend to do that, too early and insufficient caffeine. OTOH I'm not overly worried.That mobile number gets included in just about everything I buy or sign up for on-line. I have a very extensive block list on the phone and I am a heavy contributor to identifying spammers. I also regularly do web searches for it, and always come up empty. No doubt someone with a lot of InfoSec skills and sufficient motivation could find more of my personal information from just the number, but that is true of almost everything done on-line. NTM that there is no such thing as "unposting" information.Once you have uploaded something to the web (or elsewhere) it persists in some form, somewhere, and can be accessed by people whose identity you will never know. Thank you for the heads-up, though.
  9. Someone asked me if the qualification process at Shooters included NJ use of force training, and whether the certificate granted acknowledged that. The answers are "yes" and "yes". I have attached my (redacted) certificate as an example. REDACTED Shooters Firearms Training Record for NJ carry permit.pdf
  10. I was able to telephone them and make the change. I had to navigate a s**load of menus and sit on hold for a few minutes, but when I did get to talk to a live person, she was extremely competent and helpful. That was a pleasant surprise. I expected poor Customer Service, what I got was about as good as exists today. BTW, she told me that they are already well into September in scheduling firearms fingerpriting appointments at the NJ locations that do those (not all locations perform all services) and said there had been a rush on those recently. I informed her of the Bruen-induced changes in the NJ carry permit process, and told her I had seen estimates of 200,000 applications as a result. She hadn't been aware of any of that. She told me that she might need to increase her morning caffeine intake
  11. I scheduled an IdenTOGO appointment for 9:20 AM Monday, August 15, in Ardmore. The sign-up was "interesting". I had previously scheduled an appointment with a Contributor Case Number of "SMITH080122" (not my actual surname on the presumption of passing my FMJ qual on 7/30, which appointment I subsequently cancelled. Apparently IdenTOGO's system stored some of the infomation I had entered, because, after navigating to the link furnished by NJSP Woodbine https://unenroll.identogo.com/workflows/2F164B I scheduled an IdenTOGO appointment for 9:20 AM Monday, August 15, in Ardmore. The sign-up was "interesting". I had previously scheduled an appointment with a Contributor Case Number of "SMITH080122" (not my actual surname on the presumption of passing my FMJ qual on 7/30, which appointment I subsequently cancelled. Apparently IdenTOGO's system stored some of the infomation I had entered, because, after navigating to the link furnished by NJSP Woodbine it came up with the originating agency # for Woodbine NJSP, as previously entered, and it did not prompt me for Contributor Case Number. I assume it picked up the CCN that I previously entered. I will contact IdenTOGO today to see if it can be changed. If not, I'm not terribly worried. I had asked the Woodbine NJSP staff how the would handle the conflict if two applicants named "SMITH" submitted on the same day. They told me that it shouldn't be a problem, and that if there was any difficulty with the CCN, they would call me at the phone number listed on my application to resolve it. I guess if some PD is looking for any excuse to reject or delay, a CCN error like that might provide the excuse, but my read on the two guys I spoke to is that they just want these documents off their desk(s) and on to the next processing step as quickly as possible.
  12. I was a little leery of using my bank. I know that some nationwide banks have taken an anti-2A position. I bank with a regional outfit, which AFAIK hasn't taken such a position. Nevertheless, considering the funds I have in their hands, I'd just as soon keep any quasi-controversial activities I might have low profile. OTOH, I got ripped a bit at Postnet, which I used yesterday as a one-stop shop for both notarization and photos because it is 10 minutes from my home. They dinged me $30 for the three notarizations, and another $15 for each set of 2 photos. Oh, well, convenience does have it's price. I moved this to the "Experience" thread - my bad, sorry!!!

  14. Funny he didn't mention that in our 9AM class. Maybe nobody had a second gun. The form did have 4 spaces for firearms identification.
