  1. More likely wouldn't be charged. Much better odds than craps. Someone using someone else's gun to save their's or someone else's life is not a case a prosecutor would want to take to trial.
  2. If the owner of the business keeps a firearm there and an employee uses it to legitimately defend themselves they might be charged with a crime. I dont think they would be charged. Exigent circumstances are a defense to breaking the law.
  3. Keep in mind we are more self sufficient now when it comes to oil.
  4. Dri-Slide is black as it's molybdenum disulfide which is black. If you're shooting moly coated bullets you're putting more moly in the gun with each round. That's why it looks gunky and your hands get dirty. You can get the same effect if you kept putting lube down your bore. The melting point of molydendum disulfide is about 2400 degrees fahrenheit. Your gun doesnt get hot enough to burn it off like many other lubes. The military never accepted it because if you lubed a gun with it, it would turn your finger black. I never had any serious problem with carbon buildup and Dri-Slide. There is no problem with Dri-Slide picking up fine grit. Lube a part with just about any other lube and drop it in the sand and see how much sticks to it. Do the same with Dri-Slide, let the carrier evaporate and see what sticks to the Dri-Slide. Little if anything sticks. There was plenty of crap from the environment that could stick to it in Vietnam. I was introduced to Dri-Slide in Vietnam. I wasn't a special operator, sniper or anything like that but there were occasions I had some very high round counts and it worked as a lube on the internals better than LSA which was what the Army provided. The stakes were quite a bit higher than losing a match. Yeah, it was combat tested by me and it works if you apply it properly. It has no protectorant or solvent properties. It just lubes. It's also good for motorcycle chains.
  5. Keep in mind you need a solvent that will dissolve carbon, lead, and copper. I don't think alcohol will do that. The best all around IMO is Hoppes. The only thing I use grease on is Garand/M14 actions as that's what they were designed to run on. They'll run on any grease. Marines used to be told to use Brylcreem if that had nothing else. I use Mobil 1 synthetic grease as the red color let's me know it's grease and not gunk. Buy a tube for a grease gun for maybe $10 and it will last a long time. CLPs work well but if you're asking something to do 3 things it's not going to excel at any of them. Breakfree, G96, and Ballistol all work well. I like to use Ballistol on long guns, like lever actions, where the possibility of it getting on the wood is likely. The vegetable oil base won't hurt the wood as petroleum based and likely synthetic based oils will. Petroleum base oils will evaporate and leave brown gunk on the gun. I've bought older guns that lived in closets and sock dtawers. I saw what I thought was rust but turned our to be dried oil. The best lube for internals is Dri-Slide. It thoroughly coats the parts and doesn't let gunk stick to them. It's the best for AR internals and combat tested. I've only been using it for over 50 years. I could be wrong. I've used gas and diesel to clean M16s, M60s, M2s, and other military weapons when that's what we had available. Both will soak into wood and rot it. Plastics are questionable depending on the plastic and solvent. Glock advised using Gunscrubber. About 25 years ago I knew someone using Gunscrubber to clean AUG magazines. The magazines melted into goo almost instantly from the Gunscrubber. FWIW CRC BrakeKleen in the red can is the same stuff as Gunscrubber but half the price. However, as someone else said, dedicated gun lubes are not that expensive. @jasonx you can get alcohol much cheaper at the dollar store.
  6. The problem using diesel is it will leave a film which might effect whatever you use for lube. Probably won't cause any issue with a petroleum base lube but not sure.
  7. @JackDaWack you got several informed answers. Any one of them most likely more knowledgeable than me as far as your question. I really know nothing about MM.
  8. Only been reloading a bit over 45 years. I'm more interested in producing quality ammo rather than pull the handle 50 times and produce a box of ammo. I still use a single stage press...one of them for the 45 years. I've easily loaded a few hundred thousand rounds. The most serious mishap I can think of is twice I set off a primer while handpriming. Toral damage? A loud noise. Once I've set up and after the rounds passed final inspection the total mishaps I've had were...zero. I've used CCI primers 99% of the time. More dead primers with factory rounds. I've had exactly one squib which was a factory round. More problems with Remington factory ammo than any other. For example I have some Remington Vipers that the bullet is too big and won't chamber in some revolvers and semiautos. Reloading many would consider me slow but good. Hope that answers your question @Zeke.
  9. How often do you expect to change the barrel? The barrel is not the serial numbered receiver. The barrel screws into the receiver. No permit needed for a barrel change. Probably not DIY job. Send it to Ruger. One can adapt to the grip angle of any handgun, if they want to. The only advantage/disadvantage (depending on what you're looking for) is weight. My 22/45 has enough weight to mitigate the recoil of a 22 IMO. A Model 41 is a nice gun but most do quite well with something less expensive.
  10. What does that have to do with you pursuing this? I understand you can't get a lien against where he lives but that doesn't prevent you from pursuing this.
  11. Again, no semantics. Sometimes the chief may sign them late on a Friday and the records clerk doesn't get them back until Monday or Tuesday to notify me. My permits might be issued 4 or 5 days before I get notified to pick them up. I don't wait 6 weeks to do so. I understand they forgot to put in the date. You should have caught that when you picked them up. Mistakes are made by everyone.
  12. The date they are issued is what counts and the clock starts ticking. The PD will probably enter the issue date on the permits. The fact that it took you time to pick them up is on you not them. I've never had an issue getting permits extended. IIRC it is up to the chief if he or she wants to extend the permit or not. I've never heard of someone not having their permit extended but I'm sure it's happened.
  13. This stuff goes back to the 80s. IIRC the missing guns were stolen by an employee. Sarco didn't have problems with ATF, they had problems with the State of NJ.
  14. Welcome to the ranks of the forum who think that if you don't agree with them you're wrong and I'm right.
  15. Good parts of the amendment to GCA 68 passed in 86: 1. Mail order of ammo and reloading components. From 68 to 86 that had to go through FFL. 2. FOPA, back in the 70s and 80s I remember NYPD guys who were arrested in NJ for transportation of their guns. OK LEOSA really solved that issue. 3. Buying a long gun in any state. Prior to 86 you could only buy a long gun in a contiguous state. If you lived in NJ that meant PA, NY, and DE only. 4. Opening up importation of milsurps. 68 to 86 no Mausers, Mosins, Enfields, etc. Just food for thought.
  16. I think you are making a mistake. Do not dismiss socialists as stupid and having half a brain. They are definitely cunning and crafty. Otherwise they never would have made the "progress" they have in the past 30 years. Most of America is conservative. The problem is you have to prove to people that conservatism works. The last POTUS to do this was Reagan. That's why he took 49 states in 1984. Do not dismiss politics. Realistically politics is not getting everything you want. Politics is comprimise. Many will shout "no comprimise" and wind up with nothing. The idea is to.make the other side think they've won but they really got nothing. For example, support legislation that says every FFL has to provide a gun lock with every firearm sold. Yes, that does put a burden on FFLS and manufacturers that cost a few dollars which will be passed to the consumer. Many would see this as an attack on the RKBA. It would have little impact on that. But the left would proclaim a resounding victory.
  17. Progressivism in this country started over 100 years ago not 30. Woodrow Wilson was probably the first "progressive" POTUS. The ideas hung around and we're revived by FDR, our first Progressive Socialist POTUS. FDR wanted to make Americans so dependent on the government the Democratic Party would control the country for the next 50 years. The zenith of FDR's Socialist tendencies was after being warned by Churchill to "watch out for Stalin" he catered to Stalin. This resulted in the division of Europe and 50 years of Cold War. Truman and JFK were more like your traditional, old time Conservative Democrats. If they were to run for POTUS today they'd have to run as Republicans. The Democrats wouldn't have them. FDR didn't save the country from the Depression and really wasn't a,great wartime leader IMO. That's a discussion for another time. Progressive Socialism grew under Johnson and was continued by Clinton and Obama.
  18. States cannot override the Constitution or Federal law. They can make state law more restrictive but not contrary to Federal law. The 10th Amendment let's NJ writ their own carry permit law.
  19. I'm out of the state for the time being.
  20. Never owned a G2. Bought my first Taurus in 1988 and own a few. AFAIC their fit and finish is 90-95% of a S&W. Sometimes better. @Pizza Bob Yes...it is. The trigger on my 85 is better than any J frame S&W out of the box and still is. The only polymer frame Taurus I have is a 709 Slim. Their version of a Shield. The trigger is DA and kind of clunky but if you know how to shoot it will work. 100% reliable. I have no reservations about carrying it for serious social purposes. The few times I've used their lifetime warranty (once their fault, the others minor wear and tear) the turnaround time was about 2 weeks. I'd have no reservations about buying a Taurus if they had something I needed...or wanted.
  21. You should buy it Zeke. Everyone needs at least one PP/PPK/PPKS.
  22. Don't deal with them. Order online and have it shipped to your friend's address.
  23. Sorry @Zeke the peach breaks my general food rule of no sweet stuff with meat. I did like your meat loaf though.
