  1. Thanks Mr. Stu With all the restrictions here, you never know what will be trouble
  2. Learning about ARs within NJ guidelines: Does NJ allow a vertical front grip? What about a front bipod? Thanks!
  3. I found this: https://gunprime.com/products/smith-wesson-mp15-sport-ii-optics-ready-556-nato-16-30rd-black/ I would like to buy local and of course that version aint Joizee legal. Know of a local dealer that can come to that kind of deal? Thanks!
  4. Muslim countries have been funding groups and placing radicalized professors in preparation for years. We are seeing the start of their efforts metastasize.
  5. @Mr.Stu @Krdshrk - I missed the original link. Thank you both!
  6. @Krdshrk Interesting - thanks. Do you know of any official state documentation that backs up your quote?
  7. I'm a relatively new owner, been to the range w/my 9mm and FMJ ammo. I've read articles that call it practice ammo and talk about self-defense ammo being better. Everything self-defense seems to be hollow point and/or fluted. I know hollows are effectively illegal in Jersey except certain conditions that don't apply to me/my 9mm. So, is there a "self-defense" type of round that is legal here or is it merely FMJs and those Texas kinds of guys just laugh at us? Thank you, guys!
  8. Wow - great responses - thanks guys! I should have mentioned that the intent is SD, but I've learned that I need to and think I will have interest in visiting a range at least quarterly (maybe more!!!) because the full frame guns felt good in my hands. I have ZERO people I can bring with me to a range for a rental. I wanted to do that, but saw that every place required two or more renters. Not sure how that stops a suicide, but whatever. @Krdshrk That's real interesting. I'm only about 35 minutes away, so I probably will attend. What do I need to bring? @dajonga - Interesting feedback. LEHT is a trip, but for good reason, I can still afford gas.
  9. I have my permit and went to my 1st gun store to see some guns I had watched videos about. Most I asked about were small semi-automatic pistols which were called out as good for concealed carry. Since that's not possible in NJ, it was never a factor - they just seemed like good options. When I went to the store and held some, they didn't feel right to me. I don't have big hands, but the grip didn't feel comfortable being short. I tried some full frame pistols and they felt right. One was all steel and I expected it to feel heavy, but it wasn't and with no clip, felt really balanced. So I think I want a full framed semi-automatic 9mm. Not sure about all steel or not. As a new shooter, I think I prefer multiple safeties like a manual safety and a trigger safety. I'm trying to stay under $500, but can go a little higher. I would really prefer American made. Can you guys give me some suggestions? Also, I'm leery of a used gun that might need more maintenance, but might consider it. Any thoughts on a 1st time owner buying used? Thank you!
  10. Thank you all! I found my email and downloaded my card. Now... which gun to buy? I'll create another post.
  11. So default 90 days, but 180 if I ask for an extension?
  12. Hi, I received my NJ FID and have been a little slow purchasing my first handgun. I thought I have 90 days, but was also told 180 days. What is correct? Also, does that apply to long guns or is there no time limit for purchasing long guns? Thank you.
  13. Thanks again everyone for great advice! Yeah - primarily for self defense. I own a house, will take a course, won't be hunting, probably will go to a range for practice and refreshers. Maybe it will become a hobby - we'll see? My wife cannot handle even seeing guns in movies (childhood event) so she will NEVER be involved or see them. She knows I'm getting them, but I didn't tell her I applied last night. So they will have to be in a safe in the basement which is an issue for rapid response emergencies, but my hand are tied - it's my only option. Even hidden furniture or wall safe's I've seen will not fly here. The few guns I've read about are like $1,200 - $1,500. I'll have to look into suggestions here. I read the Glock story, but plastic body guns seem strange to me and the light weight having more recoil feels like a concern, but I know nothing. I sold my grandfather's 100 year old vest pocket .25's to a store in N Jersey about 4 years ago. They have an indoor range too. I like the idea of renting and trying, so maybe that place will work.
  14. Congratulations! You have successfully submitted the Application for Firearms Purchaser Identification Card and/or Handgun Purchase Permit. FINALLY!!! GUYS - THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!! Everyone here has been very patient and helpful. I really appreciate it. All new to me. My wife has been so uncomfortable with guns in the house, but given the circumstances and threats to our rights, she has come around to accepting it - but still uncomfortable. I followed your advice and applied for two permits w/the FID. I can't afford more than two, maybe not even two guns. Not so cheap. The Identigo thing was such a hassle. I got a slot in 10 days. Next... what gun to buy. I saw a couple of interesting guns, but they are out of my price range.
