  1. Shocker I was the old guy.,.,,,least with all the youngsters I felt old. : )Was glad to see all the young officers keeping up their skills. Good job by you was a great day how did you like the mud.....,regards John
  2. Took advantage of their Jan. special they ran over New Years as I try to take a few courses every year. Last weeks Block 1 was Well worth the money. Good sound fundamentals and instructions. Nice combination of precision shot placement sessions coupled with various drills, Steel shooting at distance etc. Excellent value and well worth the cost. Good to be able to train close to home without the associated costs for long distance travel for training. Instructors where top notch. Highly recommend them.
  3. You Will love shooting it. Plus one for the sig mags as I have a ton. Broke down and ordered more Glock mags which got here right after I got back from shooting. Love the takedown feature and cleaning is a breeze. Tried for years to get a marlin camp carbine but everyone wanted crazy money for them. Good luck.
  4. Got one two days ago.... previously had the cx4 which was a great shooter but the look of it and coupled with the need for berretta mags I ended up selling it for more then I paid for it. Shot the ruger today and ran 200 asst rounds including HPs and reloads it ran flawlessly not one issue. Set it up for the controls minus the safety to run from the left side. Accuracy was really good even out to 100 yds on Q targets with the iron ghost ring sight. Ran Glock mags even though I do not own a Glock. Hopefully someone (ruger) will make additional adapters. As previously mention given this states laws and what might be coming this is a great gun and I will by another. Cost was 529 and NICS.
  5. Some of the above relating to qualification requirements might be erroneous. NJ State Police standards call for minimum of 80 percent for both HQ1 or HQ2 in addition to required night course of fire which is now required with the use of hand held or gun mounted lights for RPO semi annual qualifications. This course goes from retention out to 25 yds. (or as the state lists it 25 yd course of fire down to retention phase of fire).Recommend you do the exact course of fire so they cannot run you around the block on other types of courses of fire. If you need assistance with this send me a message.I am also in south jersey and depending on how far down you are may be able to help you out. I have had people want to submit the NRA defensive pistol quals and the basic pistol quals and they had to come back and they then submitted the NJSP course of fire which was accepted just not sure how far they got in the process. Good luck.
  6. As an FYI sig has announced a recall related to a hammer issue see attached for related info to verify if you have rifle afffected by this recall. Hello NLEFIA members, Sig Sauer has issued a safety warning and recall notice on select Sig rifles. Click on the link for more information... https://www.sigsauer.com/press-releases/sig-sauer-safety-warning-recall-notice/ Fortunately I checked the one I have and it was not involved in this issue
  7. As others have indicated you are good for those listed as good to go. Mint is a big no go.
  8. My Two cents...... The movie is ok ,however two things kind of bug me. First the movie starts out setting the stage for the events of the withdrawal and repeatedly on the screen they refer to the Nazis as the Enemy not Germany or Nazi forces just the enemy.... Second there is no mention of the rear guard action that saw the loss of thousands of soldiers killed or captured. Many died in captivity many spent five years as POW's. It is a great movie that reflects the will to survive, but lost in the translation is much of the true story on the ground and in the air that allowed it to happen. JMOP
  9. Sadly this is a frequent occurrence with some people. 45-50 years ago these same people were nowhere to be found. For every guy who was really in country there are 13 claiming to have been there with most claiming wildly extensive combat records. Now that the country embraces our military these clowns come out of the woodwork. If you really did see the things that they proclaim you spend most of your life trying to forget it rather then brag about it. Screw him and move on it's his lie to live with.
  10. A bigger question is who has a Non restrictive CCW as the ones issued to armed security types are highly restrictive and are no where close to being what most would call a CC 24/7 permit. I do allot of quals for RPO,LEOSA and armed security and have yet to run across a non restricted non Rpo /leosa CCW issued in NJ. Most are during work or business activity that allowed/permitted issue and no acception for to/from said activity. State should not even be calling these CCW permits as most would not consider that a carry permit in jurisdictions with shall issue statues. Just a thought.
  11. Mark , I got mine via email. I learned that they are going to recode the gate key fobs to restrict entry until 8:45 am until the word gets out. Wanted to save some people from getting there early as some mornings there are a bunch of regulars that show up. Regards and take care.
  12. Before this get further off track no one did anything wrong. The shooting hours for the last 15 years have been sun up to sun down except Sunday. Only after the compliant did the township check the ordinances covering the range was it learned that apparently the time was always as it is now set. The range immediately complied and notified all members. Also this is a pretty out of the way place adjacent company never had issues .The complaint came out of the blue with NO ONE doing anything wrong ,just crossed signals that went unnoticed for many years........
  13. Apparently a neighbor called the township and complained about the shooting in the morning after sun up and the ordinance requiring a start time of 9am M-Sat. and 10am Sunday will be enforced. Cease fire is still sun down. Sucks for us early birds.
  14. Jah, depentant on the caliber of the weapon in question sig normally does set up the sights as follows. 9mm & .357 SIG: #8 front / #8 rear .40 S&W & .45 ACP: #6 front / #8 rear. This is a rule of thumb for the p series guns. I checked a bunch of mine both p series and 1911's /938,s and they all fell within this formula. Possibly a mix up from the factory if this is a new out of box gun. Hope this helps and good luck.
