  1. They have similar set-ups in Oz - on all sorts of vehicles - they call them "Roo Bars." Do a Google image search for "Roo Bars" Adios, Pizza Bob
  2. Yes, the 10-round limit does apply to .22's. If the rifle you ordered said that it was NJ compliant, then it will come with 10-round magazines. Adios, Pizza Bob
  3. Kane, the criminal former AG of PA rescinded almost all reciprocity agreements before she was adjudicated, A lot of those have been reinstated, but using language that disqualifies non-residents (of the issuing state). Here is the relevant paragraph from the PA/UT reciprocity agreement... The Commomvealth of Pennsylvania shall recognize all vaLid UT Licenses issued to legal residents of the State of Utah who are 21 years of age or older; the rights and privileges of UT License holders recognized under this Reciprocity Agreement shall be the same as, and not greater than, those rights and privileges granted to PA License holders under Pennsylvania law. I'm not sure that there are any non-resident licenses that could be issued to residents of NJ that are valid in PA. IANAL Adios, Pizza Bob
  4. I have no idea, but if you are looking for a match this weekend, there is a USPSA match at Shongum near Hackettstown. There are still 9 open slots. Adios, Pizza Bob
  5. Like a Remington 760? Opinions differ, but I've seen it suggested that it is advisable to use "small-base" dies for both auto-loaders and pumps. Adios, Pizza Bob
  6. You can obtain a separate "guest" membership when you get your membership, that entitles you to bring a guest. IIRC it is the same as a regular membership - so $100 for you and any guest you choose. Adios, Pizza Bob
  7. The sales tax I was talking about was on the service fee for the transfer + NICS. Not the item being transferred.
  8. Thank you. Ken makes beautiful grips, but he does it as a hobby and does not produce to order. He makes what he wants, when he wants, so you have to be in the right place at the right time. He advertises in the classifieds on the Smith & Wesson forum (the one with the hyphen, not the ampersand) and also on Gun Broker. His "handle" on each is bigmtnman. Very reasonably priced compared to others. And while I'm no fan of the wooden OE Magna grips, Ken's stag grips are comfortable to hold and feel much better. Adios, Pizza Bob
  9. There wouldn't be from the selling dealer. The receiving dealer, here in NJ, that will be transferring the gun to you, is responsible for your NICS check. Some dealers break it out from the transfer fee, some include it. NICS is usually $15 - so if the transfer fee is $25 you will owe $40+$2.65 Tax. Adios, Pizza Bob
  10. Does that include NICS or is NICS in addition to that? What rifle are you looking for? Adios, Pizza Bob
  11. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. The Ruger #1 and Ruger #3 used the same falling-block receiver. The #3 was like a Chevrolet to the #1's Cadillac. In the 70's the #3 sold new for appx $165 and the #1 for $265. That action is one of the strongest rifle actions out there and can chamber anything from the .22 Hornet to the .458 Magnum (I've shot a #1 in .458 - not fun). Someone must have found this gorgeous take-off wood (from a #1B) - I can't imagine what went back on the #1 it came from - and installed it on this #3 receiver. The giveaways that this is really a #3 are the under-lever shape (that actuates the falling-block) and the barrel configuration at 22". The original configuration of the #3 was a straight wrist, plain walnut stock (no pistol grip) with a steel butt-plate. They also had a barrel band at the end of the forearm - which a lot of folks removed as it was deemed detrimental to accuracy. This may actually call for a recreational trip to the range, as I now have two rifles to sight in. This #3 and a CZ 527 Royal in .223. Thanks for playing. Adios, Pizza Bob
  12. First, the back story. I went to my local enablers shop on Tuesday to pick-up a S&W 617-5 that was clear of OGAM jail (Thanks, Bluesky Bob). While there I spotted a rifle that was on a display rack. What drew me to it was first the red butt-pad, but when I got closer, it became evident that the wood was absolutely spectacular. I gave it a cursory once over, but the wood pretty much blinded me to anything else about the gun. Went home and just couldn't stop thinking about it. Did a passel of research on it and realized that it was something special. I went back the next day and bought it. It was on consignment. I will bet that the previous owner decided to get rid of it because they couldn't get it to shoot worth a hoot. "Why is that", you may ask. While examining it, pre-purchase, I noticed that the front scope ring (This gun had a very nice Colorado Redfield Widefield 4X scope on it) was angled forward - which means that, A) The front ring was not really supporting the scope across the whole width of the ring; and, B) There may not have been enough elevation adjustment to compensate for the downward angle of the mount. I assumed that it had the wrong mount or somebody had installed the mount backwards. Since it was mounted where the barrel tapers, it caused it to be angled forward. Today I disassembled it. I found the mounts were the correct ones. Examining the one in question, really didn't reveal anything - it looked perfectly symmetrical. But, I decided to rotate it 180 degrees and when I remounted it, everything leveled out just fine. Since I had it apart anyway, I took the opportunity to change out the scope to a nice Leupold 2X-7X variable that I had collecting dust. Seemed better suited to the gun. OK, you have waded through all of the above, you deserve to see what I'm talking about... I purposely have not told you what this gun is, because I want you to guess - not as easy as it seems. There are two clues to the true identity of this gun. I will tell you that it is chambered in .22 Hornet, but that is really no help. Also, this gun is 45 years old - it's from 1975 and they stopped making it in 1986, Good luck. This may go quick. Adios, Pizza Bob
  13. James McGinty (owner) is a professional shooter on Team Ruger. PB
  14. Howdy neighbor. There are two pay-to-play ranges in PA, not far from the border: Ready, Aim, Fire in Bristol, PA Classic Pistol in Southampton, PA Classic has rental guns - not sure about RAF. Adios, Pizza Bob
