  3. I agree with the other posters who say that “long range” and “hand held” are generally not found together. Hand held radios are generally line-of-sight and their range will depend on terrain, height, antenna and power - but will go from say .5 mile to 5, 10 miles or more in the right circumstances. Most are advertised at 5W, some go up to 10W. But terrain, antenna and height will make a bigger difference than an extra 5W advertised power in my opinion. The Baofeng UV-5r is a popular choice and is inexpensive. You can get two of them for $34 on Amazon at the time I am writing this. Some other, newer model radios have come on the market now that are a little more expensive but might be better because they receive more - like air bands and HF ham bands (with easy software changes), and are easier to program. I am thinking of the Quansheng UV-K5 (8) and the TidRadio TD H-3. These are in the $30 range. If you want to spend a little more, you can get a more recognized brand like a Yaesu FT-4XR ($80) ,a Yaesu FT-65 ($110), or an Alinco DJ-VX50 ($95). All of the above require a Ham Radio license to operate legally, though. But if you’re serious about using radio, you should really consider getting this. The license will cost $35 to register with the FCC (this is the amount you would have to pay for a GMRS license (good for your whole family), plus $15 for the test. There are many many apps and YouTube videos to help you study for free. About 10-20 hours of serious study will get most people a pass. To learn more about this kind of radio communication a couple of YouTube channels I recommend are “Not a Rubicon” and “Ham Radio Crash Course” (he also has classes for the test). There are many other really good ones - just search around. If you’re not interested in getting a ham license, GMRS is probably your best bet. I know Baofeng and Quansheng, and I think TidRadio, have GMRS radios. You can change antennas on these and can go up to 50W on base and mobile units. You are supposed to get a license for GMRS and it is just a $35 fee - no test. And it’s good for your entire household. Hope this helps.

  5. I originally found the site while doing a web search on NJ gun laws as I went through the process of getting my FID. Lurked for a couple of months before I registered, then waited even longer to post. Wanted to register so I could participate more, get to know a few people and maybe actually help someone else if the chance comes up.
  6. Hi all. Just wanted to say hello after a couple months of lurking. Not sure why it took so long to post. I am new to gun ownership (shot a little here and there before, though) and looking for a range. I am planning on joining Delran Junior Marksman. It is only a few miles from my house and my son participated in an air-rifle program through them a few years ago that was really good. Any thoughts? Went to the Allentown show yesterday and picked up a Mosin - 1934 Tula. Can't wait to shoot it but it needs a good cleaning first (and I need a range). I also want to thank all of you for the great information I have gotten from you already. You all seem very helpful and tolerant of novices. I will try to add what I can when I can, but I think think I will probably be a "taker" more that a "giver" at least for a while. Happy to be here. -Doug
