  1. Keep in mind the frame or receiver, the serialized part, is the firearm. If you have your guns completely disassembled it makes no difference if they aren't being properly transported. NJ gestapo? Have the police hurt your feelings in the past? Try dealing with police in your favorite socialist country.
  2. A lot of people think a Python is the best DA revolver made. I am not one of them. I've seen Pythons since the 70s. I remember when they were $200. A S&W Model 27 was $190. I saw several Pythons that has problems new from the factory. When you consider the numbers the Python problem rate was higher than S&W Model 10s (the most manufactured revolver). If you have a 3 1/2" Model.27 S&W I can be suckered into a ridiculous price!!!!!
  3. To or from a FFL for sale or purchase is legal in NJ.
  4. FWIW studies showed that only about 20% of infantrymen in WW2 fired their rifles in combat. The mental aspects of combat are the toughest. That's why training for SEALs, SF, Rangers, Pararescue, Delta and other Special Operators focus more on the mental than physical aspects. Yes, you have to be in great physical condition to complete this training but many who are in top notch physical shape drop out or get washed out. Then LTC Charles Beckwith started Delta he adopted about the same selection course the SAS use. The SAS Regimental commander came to Ft Bragg to help Bechwith. Beckwith asked him why this selection course of complex land navigation problems and long force marches weeded out the right soldiers for the SAS. His response? "I don't know why but it's been working for almost 50 years". Shooting ability is a very small part of fighting.
  5. Many shooters don't realize gunfighting is much different than gun games or the range. Jeff Cooper said gunfighting is 95% mental and only 5% shooting skill. I agree. I spent a lot of time at Rodman's Neck with NYPD. They have the best stats for gunfights. Years ago they realized how well someone shoots on the range has nothing to do how well they do in a gunfight. Mental preparation for combat shooting is possible. Not easy. Jim Cirillo is the best example I know of this. I've experience in both LE and the military. How one has to conduct themselves in fighting is very different. It took about 100,000 rds to kill one enemy soldier in WW2, 50,000 in Vietnam, and I've seen 60,000 in Iraq. 30% is not a bad average for LE gunfights.
  6. Okay, by the numbers, 1. Medicaid would be paying for "my kid is sick". A lot of Medicaid people go to the ER. That's $500-600 dollars a whack. Your tax dollars. 2. Reduce taking advantage of medical care? Get vaccinated. 3. Imported diseases? That's an immigration issue. At one point, if you had a communicable disease you were not allowed entry into the US. 4. How do they they stand a better chance of catching the disease? That's what the vaccine prevents. Smallpox has been eradicated in the US. Benefits? You claim you have employed people. You'd be okay with people banging in sick? I guess you're all for bringing back smallpox and diphtheria as common diseases 5. .01%? I'm okay if that eradicates a disease. You'd like to see more disease? Financial burden? What of the financial burden of getting sick. 6. Turn in your AR15? If you're so bothered by government control why are you living in NJ? Move to Somalia where there's no government control.
  7. Not permitted under NJ law. Not an exemption for a handgun.
  8. . The weight would kill it in NJ as a pistol. However if it could squeeze in like a Shockwave. Not sure if it can squeeze in under NJ law. They'd need to.submit specs to NJSP for approval. FWIW I used a MP5 while I was on the job. It was my go to for years until we got M4s. I used to keep my M4 stock at the first notch out. If you do an AR this way you only have 2 inches of barrel to make you legal (I think but you'd have to check on that). A 223/556 is much more efficient.
  9. You're asking for a refund of school taxes because of a personal choice not to get their kids vaccinated.
  10. Should everyone with no kids in school not pay that portion of their property tax then?
  11. As long as it doesn't "continuously feed" more than 10 rds it's legal.
  12. Your friend needs to do their own research. He or she is the one who's going to have to answer for their actions. When you read a statute you also have to read the other statutes that provide exemptions. Different rules in NJ for out of state LEOs when they're on duty or off duty. My understanding is an off duty, out of state LEO is limited to 10 Rd magazines and is not permitted to carry hollowpoints under NJ State law. LEOSA has no provision regarding magazine capacity. LEOSA does permit hollowpoints but NJ does not for an off duty LEO. Your friend also needs to check their agency's regulations. Many do not allow carry of an agency owned firearm out of state. If your friend is a Federal LEO different rules apply.
  13. @Pizza Bob it was a B. There is also an Austin Healey in my past. I like to think of British sports cars as an educational experience. You have to learn to work on them as you couldn't afford to own one otherwise. If I were in the market for a less expensive 2 seater now I'd buy an older Miata. They're Japanese and don't break down as much. The older Miatas stole their styling from the Lotus Elan...like Emma Peel drove!!! @Mrs. Peel
  14. People aren't calling @Zeke a troll. Face reality.
  15. Great red dot!!! Have one on my go to AR.
  16. Search leather repair on Amazon. There are a bunch of kits available for about $20. I used one of these on my MG (vinyl) a few years ago and it worked pretty good. If it doesn't you're only out $20.
  17. @JackDaWack I'm pretty sure I'm the one who said "properly collected and stored". I never said run off from roof was okay. Apparently @Sniper has a reading comprehension issue and inability to understand the concept I stated. Maybe I should type slower for him?
  18. Maybe @Sniper will quote Pelosi or AOC when they say some snippet supporting his overly blanket statement.
  19. Yes, I read the article. It mentions, "Some cisterns, which are common in certain areas, can provide safe drinking water". You bolded "properly collected and stored". That's what I said. Reading comprehension? So what's your issue?
  20. Says the man who usually places so much trust in the government. The link to the CDC uses a lot of "may" and "might". I agree with may and might. However, at least hundreds of millions of people have been collecting and living off properly collected and stored rainwater for thousands of years.
  21. This thread has gone from short term survival to living off the grid
