  1. I’m sure there are great ones. I just don’t know who’s who/specialty/preferred range. TBH I probably would want to do a pistol and rifle course, and maybe even rimfire vs pistol and rifle caliber if that’s worth it. But that’s why I posted here, to get recommendations. I don’t need intro/basics, other than that it’s good to have the standard reminders. I also don’t need situational or tactical/tacticool type training. I’ll probably take some separate defense classes at some point. For now it’s just technique and critique to be as good a marksman as is possible. The skill side of it. thanks!
  2. We did that last year. It was great! But it would be good to have more focused time on technique, aiming, trigger pull, etc. A laser game may be a better option. Don’t really want my child dry firing with a Mantis, even supervised. I think something with more immediate feedback would be good.
  3. These do look interesting. Bummer there are none in NJ, but there are quite a few in PA and VA. Does anyone do a recommended marksmanship class in NJ? Particularly one oriented to kids? Too many other activities to dedicate time to a league, but would like to work on skills at our own speed. Thanks!
  4. I am interested in taking a marksmanship course, perhaps with one of my kids. I know the CMP does marksmanship 101, but it’s not very available. I see one in NC and one in AL. I think last year they had one in Fairfax VA. So what’s a good equivalent that isn’t far away and really helps with marksmanship? Don’t really need “basics”, nor am I looking for a lot of tactical stuff. Just solid marksmanship. Not opposed to paying for a private trainer at someplace in NJ or say Boston to Richmond to Pittsburgh drive range. Recommendations?
  5. I’m all over the state as I have family and other business throughout. Have some older vehicles that I need either paint work or panel replacement (with paint). None are looking for perfection. Any recommendations for shops that do decent work at reasonable prices? Guys who do it as a side hussle are ok too. Just looking for quality work reasonable. What I’ve found are either refinishing shops that want to do rear apart restorations for big $$, collision shops who don’t want to do restoration work, or else maaco, who I hear sprays decently, but can have other issues. Thanks!
  6. Hooked up is a great seafood place on the way in. Not sure what they’re looking for - take out, eat in? The group of restaurants right when you come into the island, to the left and right, near and far are all good. So is two Mike landing on the little road to Cape May, the Lobster house, etc. or head up to Avalon and go to Sylvester’s.
  7. So what’s the best thing for folks to do? Flood Sweeney’s inbox with comments not favoring this stuff?
  8. Ok thanks! The law talks about parts and kits, wanted to be sure that these other things couldn’t be construed as the making of a kit or some other wacko theory.
  9. Just to be definite, buying a replacement slide or barrel is NOT an issue with current regulations, even if it has a S/N, right?
  10. This topic is interesting also, relative to certain other components. Say you have a Sig that has caliber exchange kits, or want to swap a Glock 17/19/45, 43/48/43x, 20/21, etc slide on a (legally owned) part. Is this grounds for the authorities to, at minimum, hassle you as to intent? Rationale being, the law as I read it, says, “ As used in this subsection, 1[“untraceable firearm” means an unlawfully manufactured firearm for which the sale or distribution chain from a licensed retailer to the point of its first retail sale cannot be traced by law enforcement officials] “firearm frame or firearm receiver” means the part of a firearm that provides housing for the firearm’s internal components, such as the hammer, bolt or breechblock, action, and firing mechanism1.” problem being, while it says receiver or frame, it also indicates firing mechanism. Couldn’t an overzealous investigation say that parts of a striker fired mechanism in a slide count? Maybe it’s a stretch, but you can’t be too sure with these poorly written laws. After all, a replacement or different slide in a striker fired handgun (the serialized portion of which you already own) could be construed as parts or a kit for a “ghost gun” they will try to make the claim you had “intent” to make, might fall within the law as: Purchasing firearm parts to manufacture 1[untraceable] a1 firearm 1without a serial number1. In addition to any other 1[penalty imposed] criminal penalties provided1 under1[current]1 law, a person who 1, with the purpose to manufacture a firearm and without being registered or licensed do so as provided in chapter 58 of Title 2C of the New Jersey Statutes,1purchases 1or otherwise obtains1 separately or as 1part of1 a kit 1a firearm frame or firearm receiver which is not imprinted with a serial number registered with a federally licensed manufacturer or1 any combination of parts from which a firearm 1without a serial number1may be readily 1[assembled with the purpose to manufacture an untraceable firearm]manufactured, but which does not have the capacity to function as a firearm unless manufactured1 is guilty of a crime of the third degree.
  11. The scary part of this to me is understanding what might get an honest person flagged. I own diesel vehicles that take large fuel filters. I’ve built PCV catch cans for engines. Apparently if one shops for these and buys them, they could get flagged in a baseless manner, for what? Because the item has a thread pitch? Ive never looked into this stuff enough to know what is advertised and how it’s advertised. I did see the diesel mechanic’s issues with ATF, shown on YouTube, a few months back. You just never know how rabid some may be to find a clue... or “smoke” and then pursue it. And while NJ isn’t necessarily trustworthy with folks’ 2A rights, this seems to be tied with the Feds too... so it’s hard for people to really know what is going on. Not relative to sneaky worded, hint hint type ads, but regular people doing regular things.
  12. Thank you. I was going to (I think) the same site but it never had a message up.
  13. Is there a specific site where one can go to see how far behind/how many in the queue?
  14. I’m not seeing one now. Is there a link, or does it only show up on a certain browser? this might be handy in the future.
  15. Time for a plague mask filled with aromatic herbs
