  1. When the best place around is Costco you know the local stuff is the dregs. I miss good NJ pizza...
  2. When I went there I would park in the northern remote lot as close to the exit as I could. Leave the lot and get right onto the Parkway north. A bit of a walk to get to the concert from the lot but made it easy to get out.
  3. I use one of the larger ones as a range box. I fit 4 handguns, mags, eyes & ears into the case. Only downside I found is the foam is a bit cheap. Eventually I'll need to find some replacement that holds up better. I also have a smaller one I bought when I was traveling a lot for work when I thought I might take one with me, but I never tried it with TSA. No reason it wouldn't work that I can see though. No experience with how weather tight it is.
  4. Hi everybody, Does anyone have any experience with Canik handguns? I'm looking for any opinions on them. The LGS I use in NH has one he'll sell below cost. It's the Canik TP9 Elite Combat in FDE (http://www.canikusa.com/tp9-elite-combat/). The complete package is pretty interesting and the $600 price he's offered it to me for seems reasonable, but the last thing I need is another striker-fired pistol if it's just going to be a safe queen. It's not so cheap that I can flip it if I don't like it, but then again the cost won't break me either. Dry-firing it in the store, it feels like a fantastic trigger - clean,crisp pull, short and distinct reset - about the nicest striker trigger I've felt. Comes with an 18-round and a 15-round mag, 4 different RDS mounting plates, a paddle holster, tools, additional extended mag release buttons, etc. It seems like a factory-prep competition gun. I know nothing about them. Anyone have one and willing to share their opinion?
  5. Well, you could consider using the next chapter after she's pulled over to describe her ordeal navigating the legal system and trying to stay out of jail. If you try to represent it as it would likely happen your readers would probably stop reading due to the nonsense she goes through being completely absurd.
  6. On the original topic, if you really want to insulate yourself from her driving she needs her own car (in her name alone), her own insurance policy and maybe even her own address - her own address because your insurance policy may require you to list every licensed driver in the house. Some do, some don't. Realistically it may not be practical. For you, as other said, get an umbrella policy and be sure all your vehicles are listed on it. Get a tracking app and use it - show her you're watching and there are consequences to her actions.
  7. Ok, I have an odd one here. Got a Colt thuer 3rd Model derringer, single shot caliber .41 rimfire, s/n 116xx. It came with a display case that I believe is newer, but it was designed around the gun. There is also a single round displayed with it. Is there a collector market for these things? Based on what I see on Gunbroker there were quite a few of these made from 1875 to 1912, and based on the serial number this one was fairly early. Silver/Nickel frame with blued barrel. All frame screws show bright blue, half the trigger retains the blue. Hammer appears case hardened. Frame retains 85-90% of the Nickel and the barrel retains approx. 70% of the bluing. The "- COLT -" rollmark is crisp. The only other visible mark is the caliber designation on the frame that is stamped ".41 CAL". The serial number is under the grips, markings on the grips show they are serialized to the gun. Anyone here collect these? Opinions on what they are worth as described and shown in pics? It's really not what I typically collect but it looked too nice to leave it at the FFL. Thanks.
  8. And what happens if Murphy gets recalled? Doesn't that leave NJ with Sheila Oliver as gov? Better to let Murphy remain as a reminder to liberal incompetence and force him to run against whatever Republican gets the nod. That's about the only chance to grrt a rep gov again.
  9. .45acp. Will update listing. Thanks Nothing at the moment. Thanks.
  10. Never thought I'd say it but I have too many 1911's, so some have to go. First up is a Remington 1911 R1 Enhanced Commander in .45acp. Like new, in original box with 2 mags, lock, tool and manual. Never shot, heck it's probably never even been loaded. I bought this cheap so I'll sell it cheap. $575 shipped to your FFL - transfer fees at your end are on you. https://www.remington.com/handguns/model-1911-r1-enhanced/1911-r1-enhanced-commander
  11. Ok, I found this pretty funny, though I'm easily amused. A bit of a story... Most of you know I moved to New Hampshire. I made the escape last year and have commented a bit on just how different the gun culture is in NH from NJ. I worked my way into a local LGS that now I get a call from him whenever something gets traded in that he thinks I'll like, and his prices are great - I've posted some of my finds. NH is a low-population state. The entire state has about the same population as a combined Essex and Hudson county. Most folks that I've met have guns. They are nothing special up here except for maybe some of the MA transplants since I live close to the MA border. Anyway, the NICS check in NH is interesting - call it NhICS. Basically, the store makes a phone call to the state, someone physically answers, takes the information and does the check. The store gets a call back, usually in about 5 minutes, with the approval. Last time when I bought I got a "pending". That's when I learned I'm forever cursed with a link to NJ. Seems like NhICS makes a phone call to your state of birth. Damn. Anyway, to the original question in the thread. I was in today and bought another "find". He called in NhICS and as soon as he gave the woman my name, her first question was "Him again? What's he buying this time?". I damn near spit my drink on the counter. So, You know you're buying too many guns when the woman doing the NhICS check over the phone knows you by name. My score today was a Kimber Eclipse Target II. For $650. I love this state

    P365 Update

    Google-fu shows retail to be $599, available only through that distributor. Doesn't sound like a bad deal since it includes the 12-rounder.

    P365 Update

    Just picked up my P365 today as my new EDC. I compared it to the G43 and the Taurus G2C (because they were all next to each other in the gun case). Side by side, the biggest difference between the G43 and the Sig was the sights. Haven't shot it yet but those Sign X-ray sights just work well with my old eyes. I'll admit I'm not a Glock fan. Had a G43 in NJ and sold it since it wasn't practical there. The Sig just seems "right" and the sights made the difference for me. As for the Taurus? While I was a bit surprised at the price I just couldn't get past the potential reliability issues. I've been carrying a Kimber micro9 that will be replaced by the Sig P365.
