  1. I visited my enabler this evening to pick-up the S&W 296 Ti that I previously wrote about. In the normal course of events I asked him what was new. Seems that they got some very nice guns from an estate of a local veterinarian - one of which I bought, but that's fodder for another thread. He pointed me to three rifles on the rack. These still had the hang tags on them and had never been fired. All three were Browning / Winchester / Miroku recreations. They are (stock photos): A Model 95 in .30-06 A Model 1886 in .45-70 A Model 71 in .348 Winchester They are all priced fairly - but not for the feint of heart. If there is any sincere interest in any of these, PM me and I'll give you the contact info for my FFL. Just a disclaimer - I have no vested interest in these guns or this dealer - this is just a PSA. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Looking for a dual 30mm scope ring

    If you are dispensing with the irons, why do you need a QD mount? And, if you want it as low as possible, why not just use rings, of the desired height, mounted directly to the rail on your receiver? That would give you the greatest mount position flexibility. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Time for a lever action, need some input

    My PC lever-action carbine is a .44 so I can't comment on actual performance, but I can on your barrel length question. Especially if you are using factory ammo, the shorter the barrel, the better. Don't forget that this ammo was designed for use in handguns with typical barrel lengths of 4" - 6". You may find that you actually lose velocity with the longer tubes and pistol ammo, due to "barrel drag". If you are a handloader, you can use slow burning powders to help mitigate this, but you still only have so much powder capacity. I vote for the short tube. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Pistol Pemit Changes

    OTOH, I wrote a similar letter to the township attorney in the municipality where I live, pointing out where they were in violation of the issuance statutes. I got a reply that he had reviewed the contentious areas and made the determination that they were acting within the law. Two years later ANJRPC sent out their letters, at which point my local PD stopped the illegal activities that I had pointed out previously. So, in that instance, a letter from a lay person, even though correct, carried less weight than one from an attorney. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Pistol Pemit Changes

    Golf Battery was advising a friend in an adjacent township about applying for an FPID and found several additions to the process. I wrote a letter to the chief of police and the mayor. They not only responded but dropped all the illegal additions immediately upon receiving my letter. Just ignorance of the law. When I politely pointed out the discrepancies and the statutes that forbade them, they were very appreciative and cooperative. So no, it doesn't always take legal intervention. Adios, Pizza Bob

    I've attached the findings of Jeremy Perez - vs - Patterson, NJ that address a situation similar to the OP's. IANAL and don't know if this is precedence setting - but it should be. Adios, Pizza Bob Jeremy-Perez-vs-Patterson-NJ-for-a-Firearms-Purchaser-Identification-Card.pdf

    With regard to added conditions: Many of these requirements are in direct contravention of 2C:58-3,f which states, in part: There shall be no conditions or requirements added to the form or content of the application, or required by the licensing authority for the issuance of a permit or identification card, other than those that are specifically set forth in this chapter.

    See Matthew Lutz's response, but I want to add that this is the most time consuming check and the only legitimate reason for the extended issuance time some people report. It is my understanding that this is a manual records search - not automated, no comprehensive database - and is done for each county in which you have lived for the past ten years - hence the requirement for prior addresses on the SP 066. The more places you have lived within the last ten years, the longer the search process lasts. Adios, Pizza Bob

    These are some of the most blatant abuses of the system and this PD needs to be reported to the ANJRPC. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Ugly Duckling

    The frame may be Scandium (in S&W parlance). Scandium is a rare metal and those guns that have "scandium" frames are actually an alloy of aluminum and scandium. Just the barest hint of scandium is all that is used in the alloy. It makes the metal harder/stronger. In reading various reviews on this model, just as with the weight, it has been referred to as scandium in some and aluminum alloy in others. The laser engraved atomic orbital diagram on the side plate is used on Scandium guns as is the tag line "Airlite". I thought I'd just play it safe and say aluminum alloy, which covers all bases.

    Ugly Duckling

    Happy New Year forumites - and what better way to start the new year than by buying a new (to me) Smith & Wesson? As the title says, this one is a real ugly duckling. It's a model that I didn't know existed until I ran across one in a gun shop in New England in 2007. I should have bought it then, because they have about doubled in price since then. Water under the bridge. I was poking around the Internet, not looking for anything specific, when I ran across this one at a relatively good price. I made an offer and it was accepted. It will be several weeks until I get my hands on it - payment/shipping/transfer - OGAM. This is the big brother to the Centennial series of J-frame revolvers. It is built on an alloy L-frame with a 5-shot titanium cylinder. It is DAO with an internal hammer. It has a 2.5" barrel and is chambered in .44 Special. Only made for a couple years - introduced in 1999 discontinued in 2001 (probably because it was so ugly) - which means it has no internal lock. Depending on whose review you read, I've seen the weight stated at everything from 18 ounces to 27 ounces. I think it probably is in the 20 - 21 ounce range as my 325 PD is 25 ounces (bigger frame but bigger holes and one more of them). So here it is... A S&W 296 Ti I hope that your new year starts off as well as mine. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Stock Question

    Yes, adjustable - not collapsible or telescopic. Stocks like the Magpul PRS with a screw adjustable length-of-pull are perfectly legal. The LOP adjustment on the PRS is only 1.4" (current specs). Remember that information gained on the Internet is only worth what you paid for it. Adios, Pizza Bob<---IANAL

    Daily humor thread

    Just wanted to thank CMJeepster for his contribution to this thread. When I saw the picture with his meme I thought, "That's not historically accurate". Living where I do (within walking distance of where this occurred) I have seen the re-enactment numerous times, supposedly in the boats of the type used. The picture caused me to do some research and I found the painting used in the meme and the story behind it. Seems we have been misled all these years ("lied to" is such a strong condemnation) and the painting in the meme is likely the more historically accurate depiction. For anybody else that's interested, here's a link... https://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/12/23/a-famous-painting-meets-its-more-factual-match/ Not sure that I'll ever view the re-enactment the same - LOL. Merry Christmas to all. Adios, Pizza Bob

    Jim Flynns Truck Repair

    Jim is good people. A number of years ago, I was briefly a District Sales Manager for a major arms manufacturer and Jim was one of my accounts. My other accounts in the area all hated Jim because he always undersold them. That coupled with what a great guy he is makes patronizing his store a slam dunk. Do yourself a favor and visit Jim ASAP. Adios, Pizza Bob
