  1. Old Glock guy

    Ruger Mini-14

    I have one. It's a good alternative to an AR, similar ballistics (perhaps not quite as accurate), but doesn't look tactical. I call it my FU gun, because there's a good chance they could remain legal under an "assault weapons" ban. There are lots of You Tube videos about them. Watch a few, then get one.
  2. I'm going to create some further confusion for you. An AR-15 is perfect for you on points one and two. They are great for HD and fun to shoot at the range. On point three, from what I understand, they are currently scarce and expensive, as is the ammo for them. Many people like to build theirs from parts kits, and I guess it's great to customize one to your liking, but for me, it was a lot easier to grab one off the shelf (Stag Arms, model 2), and several years later, I have no regrets. A Ruger 10/22 or an S&W 15-22 are not ideal for HD, but they are a lot better than nothing. They are also fun to shoot, and I believe that those guns and .22 LR ammo are more readily available. A third possibility is to get a shotgun. They are great for HD, and they are still fairly easy to obtain. Also, 12 gauge ammo is still plentiful. OTOH, most people don't find them to be a lot of fun at the range. (I am a notable exception, as I love to shoot mine every chance I get.) Good luck to you with whatever you choose. Please report back on how it's working out for you.
  3. That would be my ultimate nightmare! As it is, I have password anxiety.
  4. I vote for OC spray as your best bet. I really don't think you want to be shooting anyone over business disputes.
  5. I'm not much of a speculator, so most of my holding are municipal bonds and precious metals to help offset the risk of inflation to bonds. But I recently put some money into shares of Mc Donald's when it was getting hammered. While I rarely eat there, I admire their business model of giving people the kind of food they want at a price they are wiling to pay, with systems in place that allow them to take people off the street and have them consistently produce their products. The shares have come back nicely, and I'm sure will do even better after the restrictions on dining are eventually lifted. Plus, I believe it pays a decent dividend. Also, I dumped a few bucks into an ETF that holds cryptocurrencies a few months ago, and my timing was fortuitous, as it has nearly tripled in that time. Wish I had put a lot more into it, but isn't that always the way?
  6. Good stuff! It's all I drink these days. Even though it's a bit pricey, I have completely gotten away from DD and Starbucks, so I'm actually saving a lot of money.
  7. Here's a piece from American Thinker that I think you might find relevant to this discussion: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/01/i_blockchain_therefore_i_am.html
  8. I think the concept of Bitcoin and other cryptos is gaining acceptance. Not sure I really have a complete understanding of it, but I made a small speculative investment in an ETF that holds cryptos, and it doubled in a little over a month.
  9. i don't know how many of you remember the old EF Hutton commercials, but when Smokin .50 (Rosie) talks, people listen.
  10. Nappen and others have described those options as legal, but not advisable.
  11. As was said earlier in this thread (years ago) you are OK transporting in NJ with a soft case, or no case, for that matter. I believe that FOPA laws require a hard, locked case for interstate travel through prohibited states.
  12. Thanks of that good info. I thought that there are some states that only recognize Florida resident permits. (Off the top of my head, I believe SC was one.) Has that changed? Are more states now available with a Florida CCP? To the OP, Gun for Hire will do all the work for you, including fingerprinting for a fee. Last I checked, it was under $100.
  13. Welcome aboard! If you're looking to sell firearms, you've come to the right place. There are many of us dying to see what you have. Inheritance? Do you plan on keeping one or two for yourself?
  14. Welcome aboard from up here in north Jersey! There's much to be learned here, not the least of which is how to navigate NJ's web of firearms laws, which are designed to make you a felon.
  15. Good video! (I own two of the three.) Thanks for posting it Underdog.
