  1. 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+.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I am old enough and confident enough in my manhood to shoot a .410.
  5. Wow. Starting at $915! If it was 1/3 the price, I'd take one in .410.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I used to call it Disney Land. You could drive through the barns filled with steel, find somebody to pull and cut what you needed. Their scrap yard had old prison guard towers, giant tanks, and anything made of steel you could think of. The roads were paved with steel plate - really. Need some 3" diameter threaded rod? That was in the old bolt and nut building.
  11. By the way, Fazzio's has a big plasma cutter and can cut AR400 or AR500 to any shape you want. I have them plasma cut items for me once in a while (not targets...yet). They used to have a full sized deer AR500 target in their hardware store just to show off what they can do. If you can draw it in any cad program an send them the file as a .dxf, they will send you a quote back. You're not limited to round or silhouette targets anymore.
  12. NJSA 2C:39-6 (g) "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.”
  13. The problem with your example is the transportation. You can only transport long guns if you are going specific places (range, gun shop, etc.) An FID card lets you transport long guns when you aren't going to these specific places (unloaded and cased). But an FID card isn't required to own guns. A receipt isn't required to own guns.
  14. Find a u-pull-it junk yard near you and see what they charge for a door if you pull it yourself.
  15. Assuming that these are really two separate zones, it is easy to have one thermostat do both AC and heat. By "really separate", I mean AC #1 cools the same rooms that heater #1 heats. If there is some strange overlap between zones, you can still do it but strange things might happen in the overlapping areas. The heaters wires go the the heating terminals on the new thermostat and the AC's wires go to the AC terminals on the thermostat. A heating/cooling thermostat is really just two thermostats in one box.
