  1. Thanks for the info, I did post on the NJ2AS facebook page, but I really want these permits to come fast becasue I've got my eye on something I want. My FID took about 6-7 months and don't want to wait for P2P that long either. I don't agree with the added requirements, and hope that the P2Ps come fast. but I'm going to drop it off tomorrow.
  2. I recently went to my local police department to apply for more P2Ps. they gave me this checklist. Are parts of section A new? I dont remember having to give a proof of residence as a utility bill, and my social security card. And if I have an FID from them that they recently approved me for ( about a year and a half ago ) and they already have all my info on file, why would I need to give them more copies? They also copied my DL and FID when I went to pick up the application. Just curious, any info would be much appreciated. thanks.
  3. thanks, its an old stone my friend gave me that was at his grand parents'. I used water and im not sure what they happened to use before i used it. i was thinking it may be a mold or mildew of some kind from the wooden box its kept in as it might not have been completely dry when i put it away.
  4. What is the white substance crystallizing on my whetstone, and how do I remove it? the stone lives in a wooden box and started developing these crystals on the corners and sides and is growing up to the flat side where the sharpening is done.
  5. damn, i didnt realize you posted this. i too got this response and posted in NJ gun laws section as i was unsure where to put it.
  6. I removed my last name.. Dear Mr. ______: Thank you for contacting me regarding gun-related violence . I appreciate knowing your views, and I apologize for the delay in my response. During 2012, horrific acts of gun-related violence were perpetrated in Colorado, Wisconsin, Texas , New Jersey , and especially tragically, the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut . While I join all Americans in sending my thoughts and prayers to the victim of gun crimes across the country , it's simply not enough for us to express our condolences. We must take action to make it harder for these tragedies to strike our communities. We should remember that each day on average more than 80 Americans are killed by gunfire, unnecessary tragedies. All of these deaths, whether from homicide or suicide or accident, are tragic, and we must act to prevent as many as possible. Arguments that gun safety legislation won't help the situation seem to me illogical or blindly ideological. I strongly support the effort Senators Lautenberg and Menendez are engaged in to require face-to-face ammunition purchasing requirements, and I am a co-sponsor of Rep. Carolyn McCarthy's companion bill (H. R. 142) in the House. I am also a co-sponsor of bills to strengthen background checks (H. R. 137 ), to close the gun show loophole that allows sales without the background check s (H. R. 141 ), and to prohibit the sale or possession of large capacity magazines, clips or drums (H. R. 13 8). I successf ully amended the House passed Fiscal Year 11 budget to ensure that the Department of Justice fully funded the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 . NICS is a national database system that keeps track of individuals disqualified under current law from purchas ing and possessing firearms. I a m also a co-sponsor of Rep. McCarthy's "Fix Gun Checks Act" (H.R. 137 ), which would, among other things, extend the Brady Act background check procedures to unlicensed transferors and transferees of firearms. I was pleased that Vice President Biden's Gun Violence Task Force recommendations embraced so many of these same concepts that I have long supported. Law enforcement organizations such as the International Association of Chiefs of Police understand that common-sense controls on the ownership and possession of firearms is important if we are to keep our streets safe. New Jersey's gun laws are strong, sensible, and help to keep us safe. Police, hobbyists, hunters, and other citizens live very comfortably under New Jersey's laws but our safety is undercut by lax laws in other states. I have opposed NRA giveaways like the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act that would trump state law and let anyone licensed in any state carry a concealed weapon in New Jersey. I will oppose strongly any efforts to undermine New Jersey's own effective gun control laws . A t the start of the 113 th Congress in January 2013 , I introduced the Handgun Licensing and Registration Act (H. R. 117) , which is modeled on the New Jersey law , and would extend the law uniformly across the country . It has worked in our state to help prevent "straw purchases" and other illegal efforts to obtain guns, and I believe such an approach can work nationally. Communities across this country have suffered because the House Tea Party majority has also tried to cut back funding for local police departments and even proposed eliminating the highly successful Community O riented Policing Services COPS program. Cities and towns across our state have seen federal funding for programs like COPS slashed several years in a row, and predictably, the loss of police officers on the beat has been matched by an increase in violent crime in our state and around the nation. During the 112 th Congress, I helped lead a bipartisan group succe ssfully doubling funding for the COPS program in the Fiscal Year 2013 Justice Department appropriations bill, which resulted in an additional $94 million for the COPS program. Additionally, I also offered an amendment to close a loophole in the Sportsman's Heritage Act, H. R. 4089, that would have allowed hunting in all units of the National Parks System . Under the bill, hunting would be permitted in Great Falls National Historic Park in the heart of Paterson, the third-largest city in New Jersey. Unfortunately, the amendment ultimately was not successful. During the 113 th Congress, I will be pressing for full funding for the COPS program to help bring down violent crime in New Jersey and across the nation. It's actions like these—improved regulation of firearms and who can obtain them, along with proper funding of our police forces and mental health services —that are the key ingredients in making tragedies li ke the ones in Colorado , Wisconsin , New York, New Jersey and Connecticut less like ly to happen. But we need all concerned American s to raise their voice in support of sensible gun control changes being considered in Congress. In its 2008 decision in the Heller vs. District of Columbia case, the Supreme Court affirmed that "The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home" and that "Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited." I am pleased that the Supreme Court has recognized the legitimacy of efforts by states and localities to regulate the sale of handguns and to place limits on where those guns can be taken and used outside of a person's ho me, as well as on the apparent validity of licensing requirements and whether convicted felons can own firearms. I will continue to support common-sense legislation that helps to protect our communities from gun violence. Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me.

Sincerely, RUSH HOLT Member of Congress P.S. Just a reminder: I always want to hear from you, but please don't reply to this e-mail. Instead, please email me through my website at http://holt.house.gov/contact or call me at 1-87-RUSH-HOLT (1-877-874-4658) to let me know what's on your mind.
  7. A friend of mine had a problem like this after he built a lower, his hammer spring was backwards he turned it the right way and fixed it.
  8. Famous Daves, Pineapple Habanero wings are freakin awesome. Just sayin'
  9. I used to dye some Delrin parts on my paintball markers when I was playing on a team to match the color scheme of my markers. It actually worked well, but the delrin parts were normally a bright white color. I dont know how well it would work on polymer that already has a color in it, but seems like a cool idea. Please post the results.

    FN Hi Power

    I have a friend that is looking to buy a Fabrique Nationale D'Armes De Guerre Herstal Belgique Hi Power 9mm. The marking on the firearm are Belgium, we know that but the only number on it for a serial number is A160 and we can't find to much on the internet about it. If anyone has any info please let me know. Looking mostly for date and who may have used it. I'm thinking that the A160 is a variation number but not to sure. If it is, where is the serial number? Let me know if any of you guys know. Thanks.

  12. I'm not saying that I expect them to "wave a magic wand". Are they're "perks" worthwhile as well, The insurance they offer and I think i heard they offer legal or lawyer services if I heard correctly. Thank you for your 1,000,000,000th reply even though you have 30 posts,
  13. I got a letter from the NRA that this is my final notice to receive a gift (range bag) for joining. I'd like to join but I don't see any real benefit being that I live in NJ, and I am on the fence as to whether or not I should join. I never really hear about them doing anything with NJ so the idea of becoming a member with them seems a bit redundant. Anyone else a member that lives in NJ can you please tell me, is it worth becoming a member in NJ? Thanks in advance!
  14. i live in plainfield aswell. i applied for my initial FPID and 3 permits in november last year and didnt get it until may. the lady at the desk, Phyllis i believe her name is, is very nice but the officers i dealt with were pretty rude and gave me the run around. i lived in scotch plains and N plainfield years previously and did not have to or was told they need my records from those towns. and when i got it they had misspelled my last name on the FPID card and miss spelled some information on my permits. i want to apply for more permits but i dont want it to take long again. lol
