  1. You said he got "third degree probation". Did you mean probation for a third degree offense? Because if so, he's a convicted felon and his gun owning days are over. Even if he's on probation for an disorderly persons offense (or even PTI), he doesn't lose his 2A rights, but he he can't have guns at home while serving the probationary term.
  2. I go through Edison as well. My permits usually take 4-5 months, but that's because Passaic Co (where I used to live) is stupid slow in providing records. Otherwise, it's as painless as can be expected in this ridiculous state. I usually get both an email and phone call when my permission slips are ready. The lady who handles permits (the one in the video) is always courteous and helpful. She doesn't come off as anti-gun, either.
  3. So true. Country music shows are bastions of civilized behavior... http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2014/08/07/violence-tragedy-mass-arrests-what-is-going-on-with-country-music-concerts-this-summer http://www.gloucestercitynews.net/clearysnotebook/2015/06/cnbnews-tips-and-snippetsmt-ephraim-residents-injured-by-camden-concert-mob-sat-opening-of-city-post.html http://www.examiner.com/article/shooting-at-jason-aldean-concert
  4. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/08/robert-farago/taurus-recalls-nearly-1m-pistols-pt-111-millennium-pt-132-millennium-pt-138-millennium-pt-140-millennium-pt-145-millennium-pt-745-millennium-pt-609-pt-640-and-pt-247/ “Firearms manufacturer Taurus has agreed to a voluntary recall of nearly 1 million pistols as part of the settlement of a lawsuit that alleges nine handgun models had defects, including one that caused some to inadvertently fire when dropped,” al.com reports. “The settlement affects customers who bought the following models sold between 1997 and 2013 in the U.S., Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam: PT-111 Millennium; PT-132 Millennium; PT-138-Millennium; PT-140 Millennium; PT-145 Millennium; PT-745 Millennium; PT-609; PT-640; and PT-24/7. In a statement released Friday night, Taurus denied that there are any design defects in the models . . . “The Taurus Companies stand by the Class Pistols and vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing and liability,” a notice that will be sent to customers states. Yes, well the models are not drop-safe (a Taurus executive testified in an earlier case that the models had not been tested for drop-safe performance prior to their release to the general public). On Thursday, a Miami federal judge approved the settlement, subject to a final judgement in January of next year. Under the terms of preliminary agreement Taurus must . . . – Provide an enhanced warranty to allow any owner – even if it isn’t the original owner and for the life of the pistol – to submit the handgun for inspection and repair, if possible. If the defects can’t be repaired Taurus will offer to replace the pistol with a similar new one. Normal inspection and shipping fees and labor costs will be waived. – Produce on-line safety training videos for those customers who bought the pistols to show them how to handle and carry the pistols to avoid dropping them and how to ship them for warranty repairs. – Allow customers who bought the pistols to send their pistols back for cash payments. The payments will vary up to $200, depending on how many pistols are returned. The variation is due to the cap agreed by both sides of the lawsuit. It limits Taurus’ customer liability to $30m, not including an estimated $9m payment to the lawyers who brought the suit. Customers who bought the models listed above are advised: Taurus customer service is already a bit, uh, challenging. With the possibility of tens of thousands of guns heading back to the company, we doubt the situation will get any better in the days and months to come. You have been warned.
  5. Sometimes, even James Yeager gives good advice (summary- if they're fleeing, let them)
  6. I always field strip every new gun and give it the once over. Except my MK III, because of the stories of how difficult they are to put back together. First time at the range: FTEs and FTFs* all day. At least 1 or 2 per mag, with three different types of ammo. After getting it home and doing my normal routine, no issues. #YMMV *feed, not fire.
  7. This is what I wrote right after the decision came out (no pun intended): Kennedy additionally addressed the possibility of preserving the system by which marriages recognized in one state are denied in another, saying that "[l]eaving the current state of affairs in place would maintain and promote instability and uncertainty." And President Obama: This decision will end the patchwork system we currently have. It will end the uncertainty hundreds of thousands of same-sex couples face from not knowing whether they’re marriage, legitimate in the eyes of one state, will remain if they decide to move or even visit another. So I guess I can start carrying. Because being legally allowed to exercise a fundamental, foundational, enumerated, constitutional right in 30+ states, but not my own home state, definitely creates instability and uncertainty. And worse, it creates the very real prospect of incarceration and permanent loss of that right if I happen to visit the wrong state. Even by mistake. Apparently all rights are equal, but some are more equal than others...
  8. Howard, I've seen this happen to a few guns on various forums. No definitive answers usually as to the cause, but a number of people did point out that high pressure rounds can be the culprit. Just something to consider.
  9. Effin GLOCK. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2015/04/robert-farago/glock-demanding-customer-info-from-gun-dealers/ Trop Gun Shop regrets to inform our customers that we will no longer be participating in the Glock Blue Label program. Effective immediately, Glock terminated us from the program for refusing to furnish access to our customers’ private information for the purposes of auditing by Glock employees. While it is regrettable that we will no longer be able to offer the benefits of the Blue Label program here at Trop, we absolutely refuse to compromise the sensitive information of our customers by furnishing it to anyone without proper authority through standard legal practices. To participate in the Glock Blue Label program a dealer must allow Glock access to audit “qualifying credentials” of its Blue Label customers. Typically these credentials are a form of identification verifying the individual is a member of one of the groups listed in the Blue Label program. Recently a representative of Glock entered our establishment and demanded access to view our records related to all Blue Label sales, specifically our ATF Form 4473s, which contain very detailed, personal and identifying information of our customers. We refused the Glock representative access to this information. During repeated correspondence Glock continued to demand access to the 4473s or we would be terminated from the Blue Label program. We attempted to reconcile the situation while maintaining our customers’ privacy and made every effort to comply with reasonable requests to audit the Blue Label sales to maintain the integrity of the program. However, Glock insisted that access to the 4473s and only access to the 4473s would be a sufficient level of compliance. Our position was, and continues to be, that we will not surrender to Glock our Form 4473s and our customers’ identifying information under any circumstance. It is an untenable breach of our customers’ privacy and Trop Gun Shop will not submit to this unreasonable demand. As a result of our position, Glock immediately terminated our status as an authorized participant of the Blue Label program. Furthermore, Glock advised us that if we ever applied in the future, that request would be denied. While we are displeased that we can no longer support our qualifying customers through the Blue Label program, Trop Gun Shop remains committed to the security and privacy of all of our customers, and continues to offer its Law Enforcement / Military discount to those who qualify. Regards, Trop Gun Shop
