  1. Nice work Virginia! They accomplished something we have been incapable of here in NJ: Stopping an out of control Democratic majority hell bent on stripping 2A rights.
  2. Welcome to our clubhouse! There's a lot you can learn on this forum about all aspects of shooting, including how to navigate the tangled mass of NJ gun laws so you can stay out of jail. There is a huge amount of useful archived info that you can easily find using the search function. Some of you could take a thread off track even if it was on rails!
  3. I was going to ask if anyone had experience comparing them, because if they are close, the Taurus is about half the price of the Glock.
  4. Loved it! It was much easier for my old eyes to pick it up, and I just put it where I wanted my rounds to go, and using Federal Flite Control 00 Buckshot, most of the holes in the target were touching. I haven't tried it for clays yet. Not sure how well that would work out.
  5. I took Gun For Hire's Urban Shotgun 1 last night. I have done that class many times, as had most of the others in attendance, and I always enjoy it, because it's a great review of fundamentals, it's always to good to practice basic skills, and let's face it, it's hard to not enjoy blasting away for four hours with shotguns! I ran my new Mossberg 930 Thunder Ranch model with a Sig Romeo red dot sight (my first shotgun with an optic), and also my trusty old 590 A1 that I carry around in the back of my Jeep. The instructors, Bob and Tony, are great, providing encouragement, but also introducing stress at times to challenge us, and providing gentle correction as needed. All that, and the class was only 15 minutes from my home!
  6. Mrs. Old Glock guy and I got down there around 5:30 on Tuesday evening. We had no trouble getting through and finding parking about three quarters of a mile away. We strolled over to the convention center, and were on the admission line by around 5:40. The line was moving, and people were still getting in even that late. We weren't really all that close when they shut the doors, so we hung out, chatted with some nice people, and watched the speech on the giant monitor. The President was energized, as always, and it was great to see Van Drew up there with him. The crowd was surprisingly mellow. There were some cheers and polite clapping, but no one was raucous. I did not see any protests or other agitators. We were glad we went. Afterward,we stopped at Mud Hen brew pub nearby, where we were joined by lots of people in Trump attire who were coming from the rally. By the time we had a quick dinner, traffic had dissipated, and we were able to cruise out of there up to our shore place in Seaside Park.
  7. Getting ready to head down there in a little while. No hope of getting in (and no way I would have either the patience or stamina for that), but looking to hang out with like-minded people, and take in the whole experience. I'll be sure to report back in a day or so.
  8. I've said this before, so I'll say it again: No Republican will ever again win a state-wide election in New Jersey.
  9. Downtownv, thanks for posting that. I did not receive it. So serious question, even though I don't see it specifically listed, I guess we're supposed to leave our blades home (or in the car)?
  10. We're probably going. No way we can get down there early enough to have any shot at getting in, but we want to hang out and see what the whole experience is like. Thinking it could be fun, if the weather is OK, which is what it looks like in the forecast.
  11. Good to always keep a handgun in a holster, especially when there is a round chambered. But then I'm preaching to the choir here.
  12. I have our tickets. Anyone know if they get you in, or just give you permission to stand in line?
  13. I was going to say the same thing! Makes our attendance at Trenton rallies look pathetic. Then again, they still have a strong gun culture in VA, while ours has largely been killed off by years of anti-gun incrementalism.
