  1. Best of luck with it. Suggestion: Invest in a spare firing pin, rear firing pin, and firing pin spring (the little doodad thing that aligns the front pin with the rear.)
  2. Reduction in taxes? Perish the thought. Things still have to be paid for. Busing is still going on in my wife's school district since some drivers are delivering meals to students daily. 500,000 students in this state qualify for the reduced or free meal programs. Sometimes lunch, sometimes breakfast and lunch. When school is out for summer recess, how do they get fed? In certain districts there are "food delivery stations" where they can go to pick up their meals. And it doesn't stop at the meals program. iPad insurance is waived for some, field trips are free for some. Too many people know how to take advantage of the system today. It started out years ago with a handful of people that were truly needy, but has grown exponentially for obvious reasons.
  3. I believe some carry states (America) certify CCW folks every year in NICS.
  4. NICS data: https://www.fbi.gov/file-repository/nics_firearm_checks_-_month_year_by_state.pdf/view
  5. Modified will work, but IC or Cyl. may work better. Shooting a variety of slugs for accuracy with these different chokes is the only way to confirm what provides the best accuracy.
  6. Unless you can get a count of active FID's from public records, getting an accurate number here is like pinning a grain of sand. March 2020 NJ NICS was the largest number of firearms I've seen transacted in a while. Another factor you need to account for is the scores of thousands who leave this state every year. Many folks leaving are >50 years of age. How many of those folks owned firearms? Are their numbers being replaced by new residents who purchase the same amount firearms? We'll never know.
  7. I think you need to find someone that makes a +2 extension. I see MOA Precision offers +3 thru +7 extensions, but no +2's. I would try contacting Midwest Gun Works. They may be able to point you in the right direction.
  8. Good price for a 12# keg. Hercules used to market 15 lb. kegs of smokeless powder. When my dad heard I was reloading back in the 90's, he gave me two used kegs of Red Dot and Green Dot he had no use for. They were each about half full. They lasted me about ten years reloading 12 ga. & 20 ga. skeet & upland loads. He had bought them in the early 60's, when a 15# keg sold for $30.
  9. Absolutely! Pivotal disasters throughout history make or break many politicians. It's a politician's dream if it fares well for them. 9/11 was Giuliani's moment, and he tried to capitalize on it years later with a run for President. Hurricane Katrina was but one calamity that the media hung Pres. Bush with. Hurricane Sandy brought Christie into the national limelight, and his second term in office he tried to capitalize on that by campaigning for President.
  10. Gov. Murphy has been busy the last few weeks crafting executive orders in response to this pandemic: 107 Governor Murphy directs all residents to stay at home until further notice 2020/03/21 108 Governor Murphy invalidates any county or municipal restriction that in any way will or might conflict with any of the provisions of Executive Order No. 107 2020/03/21 109 Governor Murphy Suspends All Elective Surgeries, Invasive Procedures to Preserve Essential Equipment and Hospital Capacity 2020/03/23 110 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Requiring Child Care Centers Close on April 1 Unless Serving Children of Essential Workers 2020/03/25 111 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Directing Health Care Facilities to Report Data, Including PPE Inventory and Bed Capacity, On a Daily Basis 2020/03/28 112 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order to Remove Barriers to Health Care Professionals Joining New Jersey's COVID-19 Response and Provide Protections for Front Line Health Care Responders 2020/04/01 113 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Authorizing Commandeering of Property Such as Medical Supplies 2020/04/02 114 Governor Murphy Directs U.S. and New Jersey Flags to Fly at Half-Staff Indefinitely in Honor of Those Who Have Lost Their Lives or Have Been Affected by COVID-19 2020/04/03 115 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order to Strengthen COVID-19 Response Efforts by Allowing Certain Retirees to Return to Public Employment 2020/04/04 116 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Extending Statutory Deadlines for School Districts Whose Elections Were Moved from April to May 2020/04/07 117 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Waiving Student Assessment Requirements for 2019-2020 School Year 2020/04/07 118 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Closing State and County Parks to Further Social Distancing 2020/04/07 119 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Extending Public Health Emergency in New Jersey 2020/04/07 120 Governor Murphy Announces Postponement of June 2nd Primary Elections until July 7th 2020/04/08 121 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Allowing Greater Weight Limit for Vehicles Carrying COVID-19 Relief Supplies 2020/04/08 122 Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order to Cease All Non-Essential Construction Projects and Imposes Additional Mitigation Requirements on Essential Retail Businesses and Industries to Limit the Spread of COVID-19 2020/04/08
  11. Got an email yesterday that Weatherby is selling once-fired brass for their proprietary cartridges for $1/each. Anyone who reloads for a Weatherby cartridge up to the .300 Weatherby Mag. may be interested. That's roughly half the price of what factory new brass goes for, and Weatherby brass is sometimes hard to find.
  12. I hope you told him you were scouting for turkeys since the season opens soon and they are known to social distance from humans right when hunting season starts.
  13. In NY you show them your NJ FID for a long gun (rifle/shotgun,) and you're processed in minutes. No fees except for the price of the firearm + tax. If you flunk the Federal NICS check you pay a penalty charge. Most don't know what the COE is either.
  14. "They" have been adjusting and tweaking that new normal since 1966.
  15. I'm disappointed Bullseye wasn't one of the powders. It's been around and in continuous production since 1898.
