  1. Shipping rifles and shotguns to yourself is not hard. You can mail them no problem. Just buy a rifle case from Amazon, it will arrive in a cardboard box. Open the cardboard box, take the rifle case out, put your rifles/shotguns in, put the case back in the box, re-seal it, mail it to yourself. Shipping handguns is difficult to say the least. They are not mailable items. Private couriers such as Fedex and UPS are legally able to ship handguns from yourself/to yourself, but in actuality they refuse to ship handguns anywhere but to a FFL. Theoretically you could act like a criminal and not declare the package as having a firearm. That invites yourself being treated as a criminal if something happens to the package. As an honest person, you don't need that kind of stress. You could ship the handguns via Fedex or UPS to a federal firearms dealer in Florida and have him hold it for you there, and you would just get a Florida drivers license and then do the NICS check down there to claim them. No permits to wait for down there. The only issue is bringing handguns to Fedex or UPS in New Jersey to ship them. Are you violating NJ law on possessing a handgun outside of an exemption when you are bringing them to the Fedex or UPS retail location? Will you be arrested if a police officer walks by? Will the employees recoil in horror? You don't need that kind of stress. Better option is to bring your handguns to a NJ FFL and have that FFL ship them to a Florida FFL, where you can then pay the NICS fee, fill out a ATF form 4473, pass the check, pay the dealer his fee, and claim them. In actuality, driving down to Florida with them unloaded and locked in a case is really the best option by far because they will never leave your possession and control. Whenever you have a situation where you are checking baggage, or shipping packages, or going through a dealer, there are numerous potential problems that can arise. Involving other potentially squeamish, error-prone, potentially ill-advised people who don't know the law, with your guns, is best avoided. Driving to Florida is pretty well covered legally. You are covered in NJ because you are moving. Once you get past the NJ border, you are fine everywhere else under 18 USC 926A. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/926A Ditch your hollow point rounds. They aren't covered by the moving exemption in NJ, as Brian Aitken found out in his trial. Bring them to a range in NJ and shoot them all off. Buy new ones in Florida. Enjoy your Florida permit and play the Miami Vice theme song when you get there.
  2. Who the hell has time to do something they don't want to do? If you enjoy the process of reloading, do it because you enjoy it. Don't do it to save a few bucks. That sounds like work.
  3. They did it during and after Katrina. https://www.amazon.com/Great-New-Orleans-Gun-Grab/dp/0970981333 https://www.nraila.org/articles/20081010/new-orleans-mayor-finally-admits-illega
  4. Probably just telling the planning board what they want to hear. Gotta get the business license first!
  5. Bear in mind that a year from now, if Murphy is elected Governor, which seems to be a foregone conclusion at this point, all of these rules are out the window once he enacts whatever the legislature hands him, and we are under, best case scenario, NY SAFE ACT type regime, if not something worse. So if you like your AR a lot the way it is set up now, you might want to just leave your AR with a friend in WV and get something cheap in NJ that you don't feel bad removing features from. Google "featureless AR" for what people in California are having to do to their guns to make them legal in California.
  6. 50 years using WD40 to clean guns, no problem: https://www.theboxotruth.com/educational-zone-46-cleaning-and-lubricating-a-revolver/ WD40 pooled on the primers of loaded ammo for 6 straight weeks, no problem: https://www.theboxotruth.com/the-box-o-truth-39-oil-vs-primers/ Sure, you hose down a gun with WD40 and never wipe any of it off, let it accumulate in the action and on the moving parts, and do that repeatedly for years and years, letting it build up and never cleaning anything off, as some fudds have done in the past with their deer rifles and and the revolver they keep in their drawer, it will accumulate and gum up everything - as will just about any other product if you slather it on like that. I myself for years recoiled in horror at the idea of using WD40 on my guns, because of what I read over and over again on the internet. WD40 on my guns? Perish the thought - they will be ruined! Ruined!!! Fear not! The stuff works great!!
  7. WD40 to clean, Rem Oil to lubricate. Mobil 1 for when thicker oil is needed. No smells. Nothing cleans a barrel better than WD40 if you are not concerned with copper. Just spray it in there to soak a bit. Pay no attention to the WD40 haters! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. It is a misdemeanor level offense to lie to the police in NJ. It is in the NJ Code. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. BTW the location that I was talking about in my earlier post is the Middletown NY one up Route 17.
  10. I went there on Saturday this past weekend, guns and ammunition were not discounted at all. Everything else was 10-15% off. Not worth the trip - 10-15% off on ordinary inventory is about what such stuff costs online anyhow. The guy behind the gun counter said they are not discounting guns or ammunition "at this time". He wouldn't answer whether they would discount it in the future. As per usual, spent an hour waiting for my number to come up to deal with a salesman behind the gun counter, because the place is hardly staffed at all. Probably as time goes on they will discount more, but at least as of Saturday last weekend it wasn't worth the trip.
  11. Bringing a NJ illegal gun to a NJ dealer is just a bad idea - he logs it in within the borders of NJ under your name, ID and address? It's like signing a statement you committed a crime. Just a bad idea all around. If you want to be rid of it, take it to Pennsylvania and sell it to a dealer there. AF Boyer Hardware (google it) is a PA FFL and will give you a good cash price right on the spot.
  12. To me it is better to keep a car you have owned a long time and maintained correctly. Buying a car that might have been abused is not the better option in my opinion. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  13. You could go for a woodworking vise like this: https://www.amazon.com/Irwin-Tools-226361-IRWIN-Woodworkers/dp/B0001LQY4E/ I have one similar. You add wood to the jaws, and that way you have wood instead of steel gripping on whatever you are clamping.
  14. You are expected to leave them at home..... The answer is find a range at your flight destination and print the info for that range and if asked at the airport say you are going to that range. And actually go and shoot there for compliance purposes when you are there. I was stopped at newark 9 years ago and i said i was going to a convention and target shooting, both true statements. Second Amendment Foundation GRPC. The police called me on the PA system after i declared and checked it and was going to the gate. I went to the TSA since my name was called and the police got me and held me and asked questions. Convention and target practice was what I said. They made me give them the key to the case and held me while another cop went to baggage and searched my suitcase amd looked at my handgun and ran my ID. I showed them my florida permit but they didnt care about that. They sure tried to make me feel uncomfortable through the whole process. They let me proceed and I think the reason was I said target practice and the range info was in my suitcase. That meant they had no case. Have your NJ exemption ready to go. And I did in fact go to the range and shoot while I was there and brought a target and receipt back with me to cover the return trip. After dealing with that up front I had no choice. How do I know if they will follow up when I returned? In fact I had no problem when I returned since they have no way of knowing what is in arriving baggage. I never did that again. An unpleasant experience. The police do not want you to do it. Declaring and checking on the return trip was easy because that airport was not in NJ. I don't even bother carrying in PA anymore. I did it enough to understand what an ordinary thing it is if the police leave you alone. The problem is in NJ they will not leave you alone during the trip to and from the border if they get you in their hands. It is very unsettling to be a law abiding citizen and being essentially treated like a potential collar by peace officers. I am not a piece of meat. My life and career are fragile enough that they could steamroll me flat and there is no recourse. Be safe and make no assumptions about the law. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  15. Definitely get that threaded brass pin kit from Brownells, and use epoxy. Do multiple pins, so the thing doesn't break again. You might need longer pins than the Brownell's kit - basically you are buying brass threaded rod. Brass is used because it's easier to file flush with the wood after. Next time if it starts cracking, fix that crack before it breaks all the way. Much easier to pin it when it is still in one piece. Drill, inject epoxy to fill the crack from the outside in, then chuck up a pin and drill that in there, cut almost flush with the wood surface and file the brass down flat with the wood surface. Repeat 2 or even 3 times depending on how strong it has to be.
