  1. Yes I hunt, since 1968, grew up on a farm started (hunting solo) when I was 14, with my dad before that, and a little competition shooting years ago . Also have relatives that are L.E.O. Now I've done the same things that you said in the above post, but things change, and Murphy changed a lot of things we took for granted back then. Used to be all you needed was a hunting licence to transport, not any more. A coworker, older then me was pulled over in the late 1990's during hunting season, no FID in his possession, guns taken, issued a summons (in Hightstown,NJ) now that's 25 years ago. I still have friends that think all you need is a hunting licence. The LEO may not care or look the other way, but the law is what it is. Used to be game wardens were friendly, now their want a be state troopers looking to issue a many tickets as they can. NJ is NOT hunting or gun friendly anymore. "directly to or from" means just that. I don't like any more then you do, I can remember being able to mail order guns (pre 1967) and local hardware stores selling them, no papers needed. Not any more
  2. "directly to or from" the places listed which are places like shooting range, hunting, gunsmith, gun store, gun show etc... this is NJ law as I understand it, if you have a firearm you cannot stop for gas, coffee or pick up a buddy to hunt with as the law is written, and FID required to transport. Welcome to New Jersey. So the idea of a truck gun just don't fly in NJ. Oh we all may have gone to the 7-11 for a sandwich on a hunting day, but you run the risk of prosecution and loss of property. What you thought the constitution applied? No, not here, remember the law says you cannot defend yourself in nj if the means of escape is available. you don't want to know what the cost in legal fees would be be you did
  3. still own and use a 260 on the job, and have a back up 260 at home. Analog just better for some things, like hi voltage probes . The radar in F-4Js the the marines flew had 17,000 Vdc on the tubes, yep 17Kv USMC 1973-1977
  4. I Know somebody with 1930, 40's & 50's rimfire ammo in collectable box's. No guarantee it will fire as well as new, or at all.
  5. Gen 2 glocks are common as f-150's. shoot it, enjoy doing it.most glocks look new after thousands of rounds if maintained and not carried
  6. NJ legal long guns can be purchased at an out of state shop. Online sales need to be shipped to a FFL. All handguns go through an NJ FFL.
  7. July 2020, stripped lower, 13 day wait for "instant" background check.
  8. Remington ran a batch of 30-40 last year, first time in about 10 years. Target Sport has it in stock. Grafs has new Privi made brass, bought a 100, looks good but I have not loaded any of it yet as I have enough loaded ammo.
  9. Don't do it, run, run away as fast as you can. Airguns are an addiction. Once you start there's no going back. You may think you can quit but many before you have failed. Oh you say you just want back yard plinker and pest rifle. Suddenly your back yard will taken over by tin cans and spinner targets. Then you need several air pistols, one won't do because shooting with a buddy is better. What ever you buy first, you'll end up wanting something better as you learn more about airguns. Special tools, spring compressors, tune kits, 200 bar air compressors, bullet molds, there's no end to it. Slowly you'll turn to the dark side, PCP yes PCP as seductive as the drug. Once you shoot one you never want to pump a crappy crosman again. Carbon fiber air tanks will be coveted like Gollum and his presious. The quest for power will take hold. You will seek larger calibers, .25, .308, .458 and .50 cal. Your friends will shake their heads in disbelief and point to their temple as tell them about lunching 400gr slugs with air, not gun powder. No one will believe what you paid for them. You will get the " you could have bought real guns" line and you won't care. You'll seek larger quarry, make hunting trips to states that allow air gun to be used for deer and hogs. Anybody can shoot a deer with a shotgun, boring. You may get drawn to competitve airgun shooting or collecting antiques from the past, airguns have been around since the 1600's. Your powder burners will be evicted from the safe because the airguns are more valuable. You'll be penny less because there's always a shiny new or old and crusty one to buy. It never ends. : )
  10. The problem with steel ammo is that it's inaccurate junk. Not a problem in an SKS. Never had a problem with 9mm blazer, but I do prefer brass.
