  1. I agree but I'd take someone who's really good for 40 years over someone who's perfect for 20 years.
  2. Too old. We need someone who will be around for a long, long time. I don't want any nominee older than 40. I'd be pleased with someone 30.
  3. Shop around, you can do better than 500 bucks. A 10 might be too small. A 20 yd has sides low enough that you can throw stuff over - that's convenient. A 30 yd will get everything in with room to spare. You will need to use the gate on the end though since the walls are too high. Load from the far end first so you aren't stepping over stuff. Tell them whether you want the door loaded to the rear of the truck or to the front. I pay a weekly rental fee that is the same for any size dumpster. That fee is pretty cheap, they don't make much money on the rentals. I pay a transport fee to get the dumpster to me and to have it picked up. That is the same for all dumpster sizes. Finally, I pay a "tipping fee". The tipping fee is the charge from the landfill and depends on how heavy the dumpster is. This is where a 30 yd dumpster costs more than a 10 yd dumpster.
  4. 2C:39-6 e. Nothing in subsections b., c. and d. of N.J.S.2C:39-5 shall be construed to prevent a person keeping or carrying about his place of business, residence, premises or other land owned or possessed by him, any firearm, or from carrying the same, in the manner specified in subsection g. of this section, from any place of purchase to his residence or place of business, between his dwelling and his place of business, between one place of business or residence and another when moving, or between his dwelling or place of business and place where such firearms are repaired, for the purpose of repair. For the purposes of this section, a place of business shall be deemed to be a fixed location. The info above tells where you can carry and when you can transport. The manner in which you must transport is: "All weapons being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only such deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.” Notice that you can carry between places of business or residences only when moving. You can carry at your rental property but I don't think you can get your gun there because you aren't moving there. However, transportation is legal for long guns only if you have an FID card.
  5. I believe the NJSP is improperly combining NJ's transport law with federal FOPA, which does not apply if you're traveling within NJ. I am sure they are doing this intentionally to mislead people about NJ's laws to keep people from transporting within the passenger compartment. The real problem is that county and local LEOS rely on the guidance from NJSP and will likely arrest you for transporting legally. In the old days (when the transport laws were the same as they are today), gun shops would wrap handguns in butchers paper tied with string for the ride home. it met the "securely tied package" standard. I've transported more than one handgun home from the gun shop on the floor of my truck wrapped like a rump roast.
  6. It's not about solving problems. It's primarily about getting votes. If they can convince the voters in their district that "ghost guns" are a scary thing, it might get some votes. It's also about simple, raw, hatred for gun owners. Logic and facts can not stand up against illogical fear.
  7. When VanDrew was a NJ Senator from, largely rural, south jersey he was pro gun. He even sponsored a concealed carry bill in NJ for several years in a row and always voted against any new gun control laws. A lot of republicans in our area who hunt or own guns have voted for him in the past - including me. But he's running for US Congress now. He needs a larger swath of democrat voters so now he's suddenly anti gun. Senate President Steve Sweeney delayed the vote on NJ's latest round of gun laws so that VanDrew wouldn't have to reveal the new VanDrew until after the primary. As soon as the primary was over, VanDrew voted yes of 5 of the 7 anti-gun bills. I can't believe the NRA is still giving him a B+.
  8. Joseph Fazzio's (Tommy R's post above). Call them. I have the shear or plasma cut stuff once in a while. Shearing is cheap but I don't know if they can shear AR500, they may have to plasma cut it. And, you may have to settle for AR400. Call them and they'll get you a quote.
  9. I would just put up the fence, especially if it was in my back yard. Be aware that when you call to have a markout done, the markout company informs your local code official that you're doing some sort of construction.
  10. I am old enough and confident enough in my manhood to shoot a .410.
  11. Wow. Starting at $915! If it was 1/3 the price, I'd take one in .410.
  12. I've bought a couple of guns that did come home in butchers paper and string. The guy at the gun shop wrapped it that way for me. That was a long time ago though.
  13. Mrs. Peel nailed it! I have believed exactly this for a long, long time. Those who value independence, personal responsibility, liberty, and freedom are independent thinkers. We're so independent that we can't even work together. Those who fear independence, personal responsibility, liberty, and freedom are looking for someone to tell them what to think, what to do, and how to feel. It's easy to organize and lead those on the left. It's impossible to organize and lead those on the right.
  14. I grew up on a farm and we had bees. They are docile and mostly harmless. I got stung a few times when I was walking right through the hives but most of the time, you can walk right up to the hive and they will just buzz around you. Bee hives mean more bees in your yard but if you're yard isn't flowers, they won't have any interest in sticking around. They go out foraging where the flowers are. If your yard has a lot of clover, the kids will occasionally step on a bee. If your yard is clover free - no worries.
  15. I'm pretty sure that meth lab explosions are just from propane, solvents, etc. coming into contact with a flame. These explosions aren't as powerful as the photos. This looks like a detonating explosive - something not so easy to find. If it really is a car, I'm leaning toward intentional explosive by someone with some knowledge of how to do this and access to stuff you and I can't get. If it turns out to be a van or truck, I'm leaning toward a leaking acetylene tank.
