  1. And nothing locked (unless it is in the trunk). A ziplock bag should meet the "closed and securely fastened" language.
  2. Hope Murphy doesn't find out about this one.
  3. It was a joke. The law seems to say that you must be moving to transport between residences. You cannot go from one residence to another if you do not move (in the Newtonian sense).
  4. Agreed, as I said "Second mistake is to STFU (or maybe that was the first)."
  5. Yeah, first mistake he made was to believe the police and comply with their request to turn around and drive back to Cherry Hill. Second mistake is to STFU (or maybe that was the first). Third mistake is consent to search. Agree the mag charge was overturned on technicality; but I believe there is a very good chance the possession charge would have been acquitted if the jury had been allowed to decide the moving/transport question rather than the judge telling them it did not apply. It is a good lesson of the NJ citizen owning guns at one's own peril. If you own guns in NJ, make sure you understand the law and stay well within.
  6. However, it was the only charge that was upheld in the Aitken case. Yes, the probability is very low, but the consequences are quite high, so it is not something to take lightly. And I also find it interesting that the law is written so that everything else can be transported, and a casual reading of the law would incline one to believe HPs transport was within the law (I know I thought that way prior to Aitken). I would like to think that a reasonable person could follow the law without consulting an attorney or prior cases. And I know people have issues with the Aitken case and he allegedly had illegal magazines (although the prosecution was somehow to stupid to prove the ability to continuously feed part of the law); so I reckon it was an add-on, but in the end that add-on is the only charge that was upheld. Sure it is statically improbable, but that does not help when you are the outlier.
  7. How do you get from one residence to another without moving? ;-) And make sure you do not transport hollow points between residences.
  8. And that's the problem. You might ultimately win in court (ask Brian Aitken how that went) but it'll cost a lot and in Aitken's case included jail time even though he was ultimately acquitted on all but one count. Better to stay far from the edge in this case
  9. And just to be clear: I recommend transporting in the trunk, or (if on bicycle or on foot) securely stowed in a package or case (or two or three, out of site. And if stopped, do not say anything about transporting, or that you are going to a gun range or volunteer any unecessary info
  10. I have done this on bicycle many times. No need to lock anything (2C:39-6 et seq) g. Shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel, shall include only such deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances. The only mention of locking there is if it is in the trunk (which obviates the need for a closed and fastened case so you could throw them in loose), otherwise you could carry transport your Glock in its original case in plain view on the passenger seat next to you. I would argue that a gun in a ziplock bag would fulfill this requirement. I would not recommend that for obvious reasons, but it seems to satisfy as a closed and fastened case (doesn't say it has to be an opaque and rigid case). Surely a transparent Glock case would work too. Now, the NJSP website will add that "The firearm should not be directly accessible from the passenger compartment of the vehicle. If the vehicle does not have a compartment separate from the passenger compartment, the firearm and ammunition must be in a locked container other than the vehicle's glove compartment or console." and they refer you to statute 2C:39-6g (https://www.njsp.org/firearms/transport-firearm.shtml). However, I have been unable to locate such language in the actual statue. Which is sad, because the SP probably believes the website guidelines are based on law, and guess what happens if you are stopped, legally transporting, but the LEO thinks you are in violation? In my experience at traffic stops, I have never heard an officer say "Oh yes, I was wrong on that point of the law, thank you for correcting me." In practice, I have only done this with handguns, in their original cases, inside a plastic bag and placed inside saddlebags. Magazines loaded, but not placed in the firearm. No locks. Not sure how I'd do a long gun, probably use a longtail like you would use for a surfboard and just load the gun cases on that.
  11. When I first saw the post title I was thinking Titusville, NJ. How do you think that would have turned out for the good guy?
  12. And I always had the impression that going much being 20 characters does not as value due to limitations of SHA256
  13. I use Keepass, seems to work pretty well and it's free
  14. Yeah, I always check the actual url on a PC. Don't know how to do that on phone, often you can tell by the grammar in the email though. Or just type in the URL rather than follow links if you're not sure. Over one year ago, concerned about my banking and investment accounts, I moved them all to Keepass. And all financial or sensitive docs on my computer moved to a Vera crypt volume. And those (very long) passwords are handwritten in paper. With backups in safe and safe deposit box. It is a little more difficult for me to access stuff, but infinitely more difficult for bad guys. And better peace of mind over ID theft.
  15. How much? Will it effect the spring tension/force and spring useful life? Can it be un-pinned in a free state?
