  1. I have a friend who is a new gun owner / shooter and he has just discovered that he is right-handed but left eye dominant. Which leads me to ask these questions. I know that theoretically, with iron sights on a handgun, you are supposed to sight with both eyes open (I've never been able to do that - but let's assume that he can). If both eyes are open, does it matter which eye is dominant regardless of which hand is dominant. With an optic, long gun or handgun, does it matter if you are sighting with your dominant eye if the optic was sighted in using your non-dominant eye. IOW - right handed bolt-action rifle with a scope that was sighted using the non-dominant eye (right in this case). Never had to deal with these issues as I'm right/right. When I shot IPSC in the 80's, the club president was right handed, left eye dominant and was a double A shooter. Thanks for any input from those in the know. Adios, Pizza Bob
  2. What is this "printing" that is referred to? These are e-permits, there is no printing until one is executed at an FFL, at which point they print out the transaction for your records. There is no paper back-up at the local PD that I know of. Once you pay for the permits at your local PD they become executable. I would imagine that it is little more than a keystroke to indicate to the NJSP that permits have been paid for. I can see your point if your local PD tends to "drag their feet" on all things firearm related, but mine does not, so I return to my original premise. Adios, Pizza Bob PS: Have since applied for four more permits and a Multiple Purchase Exemption - it'll be interesting to see if the inclusion of the MPE mucks up the works as badly as it did when they were all hard copy.
  3. There are some good things that happened in 2020 - this purchase being one of them. My S&W Revolver collection is all post war, but this is the oldest S&W revolver I own... It is a 1949 S&W .38/44 Outdoorsman. The .38 refers to the caliber - .38 S&W Special - and the 44 to the frame size. These were the precursors to the .357 Magnum although they kept these in the line long after the .357 came out (ca 1936). It is a hot-loaded .38 Special very much akin to today's .38 +P. This one has some special touches. It is equipped with King Gun Sight Company front and rear sights and the hammer has been reconfigured. The stocks are Keith Brown target stocks checkered in the Roper pattern. Not sure that they'll stay on this gun, but maybe. Keith Brown is not even taking orders any more and the only way to buy his stocks is through a broker. There are about three iconic grip makers still alive and Keith Brown is at the top of that list. The other two are the Culinas and Craig Spegel - I just talked to Craig yesterday and got on his wait list - he is currently back-logged for three years. Glad for the year to go out on a high note.

  4. I know where there is a fine one at a good price. Interested? PM me. Adios, Pizza Bob
  5. I saw that - just slightly out of reach financially. I'm afraid that this is about as close as I'll come to owning one of Elmer's guns... Model 29-3 Elmer Keith Commemorative Deluxe Edition (one of the first 100). Beyond the standard model this has further gold embellishments and real ivory stocks. But thanks for thinking of me. Adios, Pizza Bob
  6. The point is that if it is legal to possess in the home (it is), it is legal to use it for defensive purposes in the home.
  7. Last time I was there they were just limiting the number of people in the store at any one time.
  8. Unfortunately, this is happening in CA. ANJRPC and or CNJFO need to institute a similar suit in NJ or, at the least, file an amicus curiae in the CA case. Adios, Pizza Bob
  9. No disrespect to the Cobalt, but it isn't even close to the SS. Thanks to Stu, I'll write this off to Hanlon's Razor. LOL.
  10. I e-mailed the NJSP / FIU about this "glitch". It'll be interesting to see if they respond and what they say.
  11. How about a Weaver Fixed Power T-series scope? That's a T36 with a fine crosshair with a dot on my Cooper .17 HMR. Adios, Pizza Bob
  12. Granted, the situation I'm about to describe is not the norm for most handgun purchasers, but it could be. Last time I applied for some purchase permits I noted that on the on-line FARS application it asked if you wanted to apply for a Multiple Purchase Exemption (MPE). I was really happy to see this, in the hope that it would speed up the process of receiving a MPE approval. My most recent (hardcopy application) took almost three months. I am in need for another MPE for six guns. I am two permits short also, so I decided to apply today for some more permits and a new MPE. Started the FARS process and got to the MPE question - to which I answered "yes". Initially there are only enough fields to enter two guns, but a button to click to add more fields. Make my first two entries, click the button and it opens one more set of fields. Enter the third gun and click again. Another set of fields appears and I enter the fourth gun. I click again and it tells me that I can only make four entries. The old hard copy applications had many, many lines to enter your multiple purchases. What gives? Seems like a little backdoor gun control. Are they trying to further limit what we can buy? I am a collector with the need to purchase collectible guns when I find them. Sometimes there can be months between finds, sometimes, like now, it is an embarrassment of riches. I know, definitely a "First World Problem" and probably something that most will never have to concern themselves with - but it does concern me, and probably should you too. Adios, Pizza Bob
