  1. Yeah, too dark was most common reason I saw photos that were rejected. Some that people showed me looked like they were taken in a room lit with one dim bulb. If the white background could be called anything darker than extremely light grey, take it again. Ideally (for a passport), background should be 100% washed out white. It sounds like the photos for a carry permit have a little more loose standards, but evenly lit is still important. If going somewhere to take em - make sure to specify the photos are 1.5"x1.5" - this is NOT US passport sized (2x2"). Usually we used software that superimposed a guide over the photo to get correct US passport photo head dimensions, but the RPO photos I have done were a bit of a guessing game.
  2. Much more fun to create your own new laws and pass them off as facts from an expert. "If YoU pErcHaSe eVeN a SinGLe .22 HaLloW PoiNT yOuR gOiNg tOo JaiL!" (Misspellings added because these legal experts often seem to have problems with basic words)
  3. Posted this years ago when carrying a long gun in a car came up. Again, *not* talking about a *loaded* long gun. Incident itself happened in 2015 Can't say this would be the outcome for everyone, but I can assure you this is actually what happened and not "...my cousin's friend's father's barber said..." "I used to carry an (unloaded) shotgun in my trunk at (almost) all times. When I was in an accident (some kid ran a red light at 10PM a few days before Labor Day, nowhere near a range for that matter), the cop asked me something about the rifle case once. He then proceeded to call it "THE ITEM" the entire rest of my interactions with him. No asking for FID. No asking to see it. No asking anything at all about it, honestly. He was more concerned with it being secured than anything else. Him constantly talking about THE ITEM was one of the only funny things about that night..."
  4. I was contemplating how I could steal all the leftover chili without getting shot, not gonna lie.
  5. Some post offices used to do them. Dunno how common it was/is. I know AAA offices have done them too, not sure if that is still offered. Some camera shops may, one I worked at years ago did before closing down. If taking photos yourself, you typically want a clean, bare white background, and both the background and your face should be free of heavy shadows with clean, even lighting. This usually involves multiple lights when done professionally, and you should be at least 2-3 feet away from the background. If you can crop/edit the photo to a correct size and have access to a paper cutter, a glossy 4x6 printed almost anywhere will be cheap. If you can't do basic photo editing/cropping, you are better off going where someone does this all the time. I have seen the photos taken at some places or by individuals and I would be surprised if they passed. A few I know were rejected (for passports).
  6. I still think about your chili By far best I've ever had
  7. Some people have legally carried *unloaded* long guns in their cars for years. With loaded mags nearby.
  8. On the subject of belts, for the past few years, I have been wearing a Hanks 21oz steel core belt every day. It is a *thick* belt (0.37"), thick enough some old hard mag holsters will not fit on it. The belt itself is sturdy as hell. Just be sure to read sizing instructions. I have been CCing a G23 IWB in a cheap Amberide holster at home for at least a year and usually don't even notice it on me. Prior to that, I wore 5.11 belts with a permastiff insert, and they were pretty good, multiple ones lasted 5+ years while carrying a decent amount of stuff on the belt and in my pockets every day. My personal thoughts on carry are based on what I own and current qualification requirements. My first thoughts are my Glock 23 Gen4 or Ruger LC9S pro. I have a Sig Pro 2022 I might consider too. I told myself I wouldn't get another handgun while in Jersey, but a Sig 365 (XL?) may eventually become a go-to. If we get standard cap mags back, perhaps I'd go something bigger/higher capacity, but a Glock23 is a good size for me and I don't think I'd wanna go much larger without a good reason. How does one usually carry spare mags for CC? Around the house, I have a 2nd mag OWB on my weak side in a hard-sided holster, but there has to be a better way for CCing in public.
  9. Unless you are over 70 and a NJ resident, you need a license. LICENSE EXCEPTIONS Anglers Under 16 - No fishing license is required of persons under 16 years old. NJ Residents Age 70 and Over - State residents 70 and older are exempt from fishing license and Trout Stamp requirements. A driver license or other acceptable proof of age containing date of birth and physical description will function as the actual fishing license/trout stamp for New Jersey residents 70 and over.
  10. ...we will do everything in our power to protect *criminals* - while restricting the "rights" of second-class citizens, sorry, I meant second-amendment supporters. Signed Above-my-paygrade Murphy Obviously can't believe this went our way, and it will be interesting to see how NJ truly plays out. After having been told, "don't even bother" when asking for a carry permit application years ago, it will be interesting to actually be able to go through this process. Eventually.
  11. I've had a cheap fly rod for probably 25+ years, but first fish I ever caught on it was only in the last 2 or 3. Granted, I basically stopped fishing for 18 or so years in the middle, and when I was young, there were few places I could get to that were really appropriate for fly fishing, so I hardly used it. I tied my own flies for a while when I was young, and lately have taken up making my own spinners. There is significantly more satisfaction catching fish on a lure you made yourself, and hearing stories from friends catching fish on your lures too. Knots, I mostly use what I believe is called the improved (or) enhanced clinch knot. Really simple and holds very well. I used to use the Rapala knot for everything, but it is more complicated and just creates a loop. I do gotta do better leader<->line knot for the fly rod next time I put new leader on. Good luck
  12. Dunno, but perhaps they are using 15% ethanol while other places may still be 10%? You know, to "save us money" while ruining older cars and small engines (coincidentally, replacing/repairing an old car or power equipment costs a lot more than that 5% ethanol "saves" us on gas prices at the pump.) Multipe manuals specify to never run over 10% ethanol. I dunno if they are trying to prevent E85 use, or saying 5+% more ethanol could/will damage something. But I was pissed at yet another fuckup by this administration, which was barely news when announced, that will affect the poorest people who cannot afford a newer car, or those who love their old car, and could damage lots of small engines, all "coincidentally" during a push to electrify everything. How we do that to a generator is beyond me, but clearly they are smarter than all of us and know best.
  13. Go for the easy target first. "No one needs 'assault rifles!'" "No one really needs handguns! They serve no purpose." ( <- Canada is here) "There is no valid reason for anyone to have a semi-automatic gun. You suck at hunting if you need 10 rounds to kill a deer." "No one wants to see sniper (hunting) rifles in the hands of civilians. In fact, lets just call it all rifles except .22 rimfires." "We promise we'll let you keep your single shot .22. ...Wait, we will? What do you mean I skipped a line and read the wrong....oh. Oh! Sorry! Ahem. Shotguns are only useful for killing multiple people with one pull of the trigger and will be banned." "We promise we'll let you keep your single shot .22, unless something bad happens with a .22." "So, it turns out someone did something bad with a .22 guys, so, yeah, turn those in. You can totally keep your muzzleloaders though!" "Yeah, fuckit, what are you gonna do, we want your muzzleloaders too. Give us your BB guns and airsoft and paintball, too. And we will arrest your kids for holding gun shaped sticks or poptarts, too."
  14. You are thinking rationally. You are invested. You have an interest in this game. "They" do not. Their entire agenda - depending on how far left they are - would be to limit you to any or all of the following: One gun (not a handgun, not a semi-auto, not more than 3 rounds, no evil features allowed (black, has a barrel, has a stock, has a trigger, has a scope, has sights, etc)) A single shot shotgun (for hunting, cause thats only reason 2A exists) A single shot .22 (because .22s aren't lethal, ever) Muzzleloaders only (cause thats obviously only thing 2A applies to) No guns for anyone but police and military (the dream) No guns exist on earth (the betterer dream) Nothing you can say or do will be enough for them, short of those goals. "You want to keep a handgun!?!?! You want to murder children, you monster!" "You want an AR???? You want to kill 500 people a second with your fully semi automatic assault rifle with the shoulder thing that goes up!" "You want a shotgun? You just want to murder innocent Bambis, you monster. You probably murder cats for fun, too." I fully support opening NICS to everyone, as someone mentioned before, a verified and time-stamped printout or real-time website based option (with no recording of data) (except between buyer and seller). In past shootings, the government (surprise!) fucked up and failed to add prohibited people to lists of prohibited people. Start there. I dunno if involuntary commitments are a national disqualifier or if that is a Jersey thing, but I might be ok with that, until minor infractions suddenly become a mental health crisis and it becomes abused. Red flag laws seem like a good idea if you believe the talking points. In reality, I would guess for every legitimate red flagged person, there are similar amounts of people who have annoyed their neighbors, pissed off an ex or vindictive significant other, or were otherwise not an actual threat to anyone. Presumed guilty with no due process (and no penalty some places for false or misleading reports), but you'll get your day in court "within 10 days" and maybe you'll even get your guns back! Basically, they want to take your guns and you have to let them, or you are no better than a child killing mass murderer psychopath. Want to make a difference? Stop making the psychos who do this shit famous and stop putting them in the news 24/7 with their names and faces plastered everywhere. They want the fame and notariety. They want - I hate to say it - a "high score." That'll never happen cause news makes too much money off these rare events, and they can't push their agenda without a scared public screaming "We HaVe tO Do sOmEtHiNg!" But I'd bet it would have more of an effect than any bullshit law proposal that comes out. I mean, Murphy still has a hard-on for .50s, cause we hear of so many $10k guns used in crimes daily in NJ.
  15. My experience with Winchester rimfire ammo is to avoid it at all costs. Even my bolt guns and lever action won't reliably fire that stuff. Multiple guns, action types, even different calibers, I have never had so many problems consistently as with Winchester rimfire ammos. Perhaps I just have had the shittiest of luck among many different types and lots of ammo from them, but I have experienced multiple failure to fires per mag (requiring 2-3 restrikes) (.22lr and .17hmr) and split case necks (.17hmr only) constantly. I would run the dreaded Thunderbolts over any Winchester rimfire any day. My S&W 22A actually loves Golden Bullets. I'd say buy what ammo you can find, if this gun doesn't like it, buy more guns until you find one that does. Aguila, been happy with their ammos, but avoid their Stinger -equivalent (1700ish fps) rounds, might cause issues, believe they too are longer cases than standard. May beat up the gun a bit, too. Federal is usually good to very good for their true gold medal target/match ammos. Automatch is usually available and reliable and is a go-to for me. Remington makes some really cheap dirty ammo, but my guns tend to run em just fine anyway, so give em a try. Never tried browning ammo. CCI is almost always a good bet, except maybe Stingers. enjoy the new toy!
