  1. Kagan's nomination is like Bush's nominatiom of Harriet Miers. Both have no track record and little experience. However, little experience is just about everyone in the current adminstration including Obama. I would not expect an Obama nomination to be anything but a radical socailist.
  2. I've bought several guns from Jim. Great guy, no BS. He's 90 miles away but as far as I'm concerned he's worth the drive.
  3. 5 cops. yes, 5 cops. One at each end sitting in cruiser. One where the hoe was digging, two nearby, watching. That's what the company wanted and was willing to pay for. Don't blame the cops for this.
  4. Glocks are pretty wide and can get uncomfortable when you carry 24/7. I've carried daily for over 40 years. Many people (LEOs included) want to carry the smallest gun they can get away with. We carried G19s (but you could also carry a 17) where I worked and eventually strted to get G26s mainly because the brass complained about the 19 being "too big" (best all around Glock 0mm but that's another story). There is really not that much difference between a Bersa and a Glock 26/27. With that said, I carried a PPK in 380 until they weren't authorized. If you're comfortable (power wise) with the Bersa go ahead. Just don't get all wrapped up in 1/2" here, an inch there, when it comes to sizes in carry guns. I never had an issue carrying full size semi autos or a 4" K frame concealed. But that's just me.
  5. Children of illegal aliens born in the US can stay as they are citizens and someone legally here is willing to be their guardian. Usually they go back with their parents but can later be readmitted as citizens. "My kids are citizens" is not much of a petition but is has worked.
  6. This is not a bad idea. The state would save money just doing emissions testing (which I think is required for Fed highway money I believe). The vast majority of people are somewhat diligent in maintaining their vehicles. I don't think this is going to create a "safety" problem. I've lived in states that only had emissions testing and didn't think the roads were less safe.
  7. B. a semi-automatic pistol that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least 2 of the following: an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip; a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer; a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the nontrigger hand without being burned; manufactured weight of 50 ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded; and a semi-automatic version of an automatic firearm; and, The mag location and weight (56 oz) makes the Charger an assault weapon according to the AG's guidelines.

    Safe Direction?

    If you want to have a 5 gallon bucket of sand in your house that's your call. Safe Direction is relative to where you are. At the range it is usually downrange unless someone is down there changing targets or something. You should pick a safe direction based on: 1. No chance of injury to anyone 2. Minimal damage if the gun discharges. Toilets are out as they will stop most handgun bullets but they are also hard and bullets can ricochet. And a modern weapon is ultimately only as safe as the operator. This is true. The only true AD I ever had was from a 22 auto that slamfired. Headspace was too tight. A mechanical malfunction. I was in a first floor apartment built on a concrete slab. The bullet went into the subfloor and that's where it stayed. A little glue fixed the hole. I have a half basement with a crawl space under the other half. Pointed at the floor there is nothing but dirt once the bullet goes through the floor. It has 3" of memory foam on top so it should stop a bullet. I seriously doubt it. More than one person has put a bullet hole thru many a mattress.
  9. NJ Gun Laws are unique. In most states the law tells youn what you can't do. Anything that's not prohibited is legal. NJ Gun Laws basically make anything to do with firearms illegal except what the law says you can do. A carry permit in NJ is a "permit to carry a handgun". Doesn't say open or concealed but if you have one and you're not uniformed security of some type it better be concealed.
  10. i am wondering if i can carry a pistol to back up my bear mace. thanks in advance for your replys. Adam No carrying a pistol and no to carrying bear spray. The size of bear spray makes it illegal for a regular person to carry. I think the max size container legal to carry in NJ is one container of not more than 3/4 oz (NJS 2C:39-6i.). The only way you can carry a firearm legally as I see it is to prove you use it to fish with?????????
  11. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. Does the Obama Administration think no one is going to take this to the SCOTUS? He can't "bypass" the Constitution.
  12. From the linked article: The indictment accuses Blackwater officials of enticing the local sheriff's office to pose as the purchaser of the weapons, something prosecutors called a straw purchase. The office provided blank letterhead to the company, which then used the stationery to prepare letters ordering weapons. It seems like someone from the Camden County Sheriff's Office should be going somewhere soon.
  13. The Ruger is a very good gun, very reliable also. But the SIG is on another level. This is not apples to oranges here... this is a Ford f150 stripper to Ford F250 King Ranch comparison. Good comparision. You also need to consider how much you want or have to spend. 1) Can you please advise me on which is the most reliable. In other words which would you bet your life on? I carried a P90 as a duty gun for about 5 years so I guess that answers your question. However, I would carry either gun. Choosing between the two, reliability is not an issue. At the time I looked at the 220 as I wanted a DA 45 auto for duty use. The Ruger was $290 and the SIG $500. The SIG is a bit more refined but not worth the extra $200 IMO. As far as a carry gun there is no difference between the two.
  14. If this is true then NJ has established another first! The only state in the country where you can't have CMP ship to your door! Closer and closer to being officially called a people's republic!
  15. Was this posted on the CMP forum? It seems to be down now.
  16. BOLO for stolen bath tubs?

    How bad is the leading? After 50 rds,100,200? Common causes of leading are: 1. Loads too hot for the hardness of the bullet. 2. Bullet undersize 3. Loads not hot enough (usually with HBWCs) I've always found Hoppes #9 to work for cleaning after lead bullets.
  18. they are not okay simply because the federal law is silent What I said is they are a non-issue with LEOSA. I didn't say they were okay I said they may or may not be in NJ as LEOSA says: Notwithstanding any other provision of the law of any State or any political subdivision thereof, an individual who is a qualified retired law enforcement officer,,,, Notwithstanding means In spite of, even if, without regard to or impediment by other things. Does this mean hi cap mags and hollowpoints are legal. It may or not mean that. LEOSA goes on to say:
  19. Now that being said....308 and 30-06 bullets are the same. Yes and no. You can shoot them in one another but bullets designed for 308 have the cannelure closer to the nose of the bullet as they are seated deeper. If you buy bulk bullets designed to be loaded in 7.62 NATO and load them to OAL of M2 Ball for a Garand the cannelure will be above the case mouth. Seating them deeper may degrade accuracy and increase throat erosion. Pressure will go down as the bullet will start to move earlier unencumbered by the resistance of the rifling. The 10FP is in 308 so what I said really shouldn't apply but if you want the best answer call Sierra: http://www.sierrabullets.com/index.cfm?section=techservice&page=ballistictech
  20. Apparently the issue with NJ is M1 carbines sold to NJ residents at the North or South store here's the latest link: http://www.thecmp.org/forums/showthread ... post104807
  21. I didn't realize they'd added that last line I haven't got a rifle from CMP for about a year. I've been buying from CMP for sometime. I always sent them my military id and NJ FID card when I updated my credentials as those two documents cover everything. They always used to ask for FIDs and I sent the FID without looking at the requirements the past few years. Orest is right about only having to worry about federal law as CMP's charter is unique. If they took out the FID requirement I never noticed but it's there now.
  22. Re: Problem with CMP shipping to NJ? Quote: I sent the CMP a copy of my NJ FID. They needed it to process my order. That's a new one too. In the past Orest said explicitly that it wasn't required. When did Orest say that? This is from their list of requirements. You can just go to the last line. If you buy from a FFL out of state they need to see your FID (most will copy it). Be Legally Eligible to Purchase a Firearm: The information you supply on your application will be submitted by the CMP to the FBI National Instant Criminal Check System (NICS) to verify you are not prohibited by Federal, State or Local law from acquiring or possessing a rifle. Your signature on the Purchaser Certification portion of the purchase application authorizes the CMP to initiate the NICS check and authorizes the FBI to inform CMP of the result.IMPORTANT: If your State or locality requires you to first obtain a license, permit, or Firearms Owner ID card in order to possess or receive a rifle, you must enclose a photocopy of your license, permit, or card with the application for purchase
  23. Don't know if anyone is still following this, but Orest stated he has a meeting with NJ Attorney General today over the issue. Sounds like meeting will determine if CMP can still mail rifles directly to your home or if it would have to go through FFL. I can't see what NJ's issue is with CMP. A NJ resident can go buy a rifle from an out of state FFL in most states. You really can't expand your state law past your borders but NJ apparently thinks it might be able to.
  24. The law only protects the firearm--high capacity magazines or hollow point ammunition are still off limits for off duty officers carrying in other states. That depends on who is interpreting it and as the law is relatively new there have only been a few test cases. If there is no law regarding hollowpoints or magazine capacity in that state, say Pennsylvania, off duty and retired officers can carry any kind of ammo they want in any capacity magazine. If there is a law regarding magazine capacity or hollowpoints, like NJ, that off duty officer may or may not be in violation depending on how a judge interprets LEOSA. Some will contend that LEOSA only covers "the carrying of the firearm" but if you read the entire law it covers a lot of other things. The law says: SEC. 3. EXEMPTION OF QUALIFIED RETIRED LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS FROM STATE LAWS PROHIBITING THE CARRYING OF CONCEALED FIREARMS. (a) IN GENERAL.
