Hi all. My name is Dave, I live in northwest Bergen County. I'm retired (injury related), and spend my time reading, surfing the web, making music (I play trombone/baritone) and raising my family of 4, aged 13 to 25. I used to shoot informally (anyone remember Ottens Shooting Range? I think it was in West Milford), but we decided not to have guns in the house with young kids. I wish I knew then what I know now! Anyway, my oldest daughter wants to be a cop, she has her B.S. in Criminal Justice from Seton Hall, so I decided to start shooting again with her. I had my ID card still, so that was no problem. Right now I have 2 handgun permits pending (and taking forever!) and want to start looking at long guns soon. Right now, I am gunless. I guess the reason I found NJGF was with all the crap about changes in gun laws, possible confiscation, etc. I started looking around the web to see how much NJ gun laws had changed, and happened upon this forum. A lot of what I read scared the beejeebus out of me, and I found I needed a source of info close to home, so here I am. Thanks for letting me join, now I will sit back and try to absorb as much as I can about situation today, as opposed to 30 years ago.
