  1. I've sent guns to the manufacturer and they sent them back to me. Packed in my own box and dropped off at the nearest drop off location. I did ship second day air (I think) because it provided better tracking. I think all UPS packages provide tracking now. I didn't tell anyone what was in the box and nobody asked. It arrived back at my door shipped UPS..
  2. Google the rules for inheriting firearms in NJ before you fill out the Form of Voluntary Registration. If the firearm wasn't listed in the will, it's not as simple as it should be. I don't want you to get the answers wrong and end up with problems.
  3. Mistakes happen. Sounds like they made it right and he went back to the store and got his 3 mags. I'd be annoyed that I had to drive back to the gun shop a second time but worse things have happened.
  4. The instructor training mostly focuses on how to teach. The NRA course material that the instructors use to teach the student classes covers the mechanics. During the instructor courses, you take the Basic Instructor Training first. This is a 2 day course that's 100% how to teach. Once you have that out of the way, you can take any of the disciplines: pistol, rifle, shotgun, etc. In the individual instructor discipline courses, you go through the course material for that course. You will teach a portion of it in front of the rest of the group. This is also a how-to-teach course but it focuses on how to teach that course's material - so you are exposed to the material but that's not the purpose of the instructor training. If you want to really refine your shooting, teach shooting. In everything I've done, shooting or otherwise, I always learned more as an instructor/trainer than I did as a student.
  5. Dry firing while keeping the sights on target and pulling the trigger slowly and deliberately. Instead of wasting range time going click, click, click she can do this at home after your session is done. The more time spent, the better. I did exactly this to loose my flinch. The other is pulling the trigger slowly enough that she doesn't know when the gun is going to fire while focusing on keeping the sights on target. This not only helps with a flinch or anticipation, it helps to overcome the issue of all of your hand muscles moving when you pull the trigger with just one finger. Make a fist, now move your trigger finger several times. Hard to keep your whole hand from moving isn't it? I don't know how big or strong she is. I took a group of teens shooting a couple of weekends ago. One of the girls was just not able to handle a 9mm without it hurting her hand. She loved shooting .22 though and was doing it well. You'll never get rid of a flinch if it hurts every time she pulls the trigger. If that's the case, she has too good a reason to flinch.
  6. NJAG's office will intervene. There will be no charges for making a false police report.
  7. Sounds like we now have the right to be denied in person instead of by mail. All of the constitutional violations are still in place. I can't even picture a strategy that makes this a step toward anything useful. I'd like to be wrong. If we ever get any relief in NJ, it will come from SCOTUS, not from inside this state. And, unfortunately, SCOTUS hasn't been interested in the second amendment in a long, long time.
  8. For a one-time job, Harbor Freight has beam type torque wrenches pretty cheap. I've never used one so I can't tell you if they're any good or not.
  9. I disagree. I have a business in NJ. Is it my job to make sure that residents of Alabama are following their state laws when they buy something from me? I don't think so. And even if it was, not if ownership of that thing is guaranteed in the Bill of Rights?
  10. I've got one. It was my first shotgun. I bought it used when I first got my hunting license in the early 80's. I broke the forearm and it took me several years of searching before I found a replacement. Solid gun. I don't think mine has ever had a real repair and it's still going strong and probably 70 years old.
  11. If the malware was on the payment processing server, it could sniff traffic between the terminal and the bank. It may have collected transaction data in real time, not stored.
  12. Here's what I have for backup water. We're pretty rural. We've lost electric for a week before and have had roads blocked by fallen trees after a derecho that kept us from getting more than a couple of miles from home -far from the nearest store. It took only 3 days that time to get out with neighbors helping each other to clear roads with their own trucks and chainsaws. We keep about a dozen gallon jugs of water in the house. We use bottled water so the "stock" is rotated regularly each time we go to the store for groceries. I have re-wired our well pump (no city water here) so that it is plug-connected instead of hard wired. I can use an extension cord to plug the well pump into our portable generator. Our generator can barely start our 1/2hp well pump so, when we're pumping water I can't use electric for much else. But that's not a big problem in an emergency. I don't need to watch TV when I'm in the shower anyway. I also re-wired our oil-fired furnace so it can be plugged into the generator too - sucks to loose heat in the winter. If we use up or 12 gallons of water and the generator quits on me or runs out of fuel, I have three 55 gallon plastic drums behind the shop with drinking water. They freeze every winter and the drums have never been damaged by freezing.
  13. You may not need to sue the prosecutor to get what you want. Sometimes, once the other side knows you have a lawyer, they start following the law. Just having a lawyer make the phone call can get something done - may cost you a few hundred dollars. Jeff Henninger is a pro gun lawyer in NJ who could at least explain your options. Good Luck
  14. With Dicks it wasn't a business decision, it was a political decision. The CEO had his business take a strong stand against my rights just before he announced his bid to run for president as a Democrat. He put the company's interests second and cost the company a lot of money for his own political gain. If I owned stock in Dicks, I'd be ticked.
