  1. An update on my Agile 52. I have had it now for about 5 months and continue to be very happy with it. I am not suggesting this is the best option for everyone. But was the best for me. I would describe it as a very high quality RSC, as opposed to a hardened safe. Will definitely keep my grandkids, visitors, etc from accessing my firearms. Would also slow down a burglar. However, I do also have other layers of security(central station alarm, surveillance cameras, etc.). I needed to secure my firearms on the 2nd floor of my home. So buying a 1000+ lbs behemoth was out of the question. Nor did I want to worry about having to move a heavy safe if we change residences. The Agile 52, with it's cradle Grid system, while costly, is extremely customizable and lets you take advantage of every nook and cranny to store your firearms and accessories. I purchased the "Plus" version which included 6 bins and three metal storage trays. Am using them all except for one of the storage trays. I also purchased the optional large shelf. This enables you to store four of your rifles up off the floor; providing you space underneath for ammo, etc. It is mandatory to bolt it down so it is stable and not easily carried away. In my case, I reinforced the bottom by purchasing some flat iron stock from Lowes/Home Depot and laying two strips of it across the bottom. The floor bolts go through those and then through four e-drilled holes in the bottom. I also put a lag bolt through the back panel into the wall. I used pieces of the wooden slats from it's packing materials as a shim between it's rear panel and the wall. (There was a gap due to the baseboard moulding.) It will hold six long guns with inline access, as well as six handguns (with one or two using the pegs for inline access, the remainder can be stored on the aforementioned storage trays which sit against the back panel behind your long guns. Lastly, the Zanotti or SecureIT's other line of safes might be worthwhile considering for those who may want a more hardened option without the worry of the weight of the safe imploding your house.
  2. I was formerly a member of GSSC and continue to attend our monthly meetups there. I had purchased numerous firearms from them and the service I received was always excellent. I have the highest regard for the integrity of Tony, Jeff, and their staff, and any future firearms purchases will also be from GSSC. For me, I also found their facility (parking area, inside lounge,etcj to be a more welcoming environment.
  3. Hi David, welcome. Great meeting you on Tuesday evening. regards, Art
  4. Thanks for the link. I just made a donation of one seat($35). Btw, this topic is getting a lot of coverage by Mark Walters on his Armed American Radio podcast. His Dec 12th show was mostly devoted to it.
  5. Fort Knox Pistol Box I have three hidden and bolted down in different areas of the house. Approx $200 each. Very strong.
  6. This was a front page article in Friday's(11/22) edition of the Asbury Park Press. In the APP article, it also states that "Maggs (the attorney) said he was worried; he had seen posts from Conti's Facebook page that included references to guns." I assume it was his Facebook page that revealed to the attorney that he was a firearms owner.
  7. Recommend you consider a Ruger Mark IV Hunter and/or the GP100 in 22LR. I have them both and they are high quality firearms, imho. (On a side note, after always regretting not purchasing a 7” fluted barrel back in the 1970s for my High Standard Sharpshooter, I finally scratched that itch 45 years later by buying the Hunter.)
  8. Fwiw, the article is from a few days ago but the incident being described (finding the gun) was in 2012.
  9. Yes, impeccable timing indeed. Two weeks before the Supreme Court hears it’s first 2A case in a decade.
  10. I recently purchased an Agile 52 safe from SecureIT. Am very pleased with it. Recommend you check out their product line to see if any of their products fit your particular needs. I have mine installed in an upstairs bedroom. Will writeup a full review when I have time.
  11. Excellent post OP. I voted by mail about three weeks ago. I really like voting by mail.
  12. To quote one of the comments below the Ammoland (actually NJ2AS) article, the NJSP will action on this right after they finish finding Bigfoot in the Pine Barrens. This is disgusting and yet another example of the contempt and oppression we law abiding NJ gun owners live under in this state. This MDA puppet knowingly breaks the law and will no doubt get a pass from the Governor and AG. While they would not hesitate to destroy our lifes over the slightest misstep.
  13. Am thinking of going to Stafford WMA tomorrow. Will be my first time there. Mainly plan to shoot clays at the shotgun(clay) range. Curious how busy it gets there on Saturdays. Appreciate any info and tips anyone may have. May also do some shooting at the muzzleloader(rifle) range as well.(Unfortunately was unable to go to the meetup last weekend).
  14. Glad to hear it went well. On a humorous note, I had very much looked forward to my class for several months. Hoped to go to the class well rested after a good night’s sleep. Not! Had to travel to Ohio the preceding week. Unable to fly home until Friday evening. Plane delays resulted in me arriving home at midnight after traveling for 9 hours door to door. Asleep at 1:00 am, up at 5:30 am for the 2 hour drive to Pa. Then the class in the scorching sun all day. It was also very obvious that I (66yo) was by far the oldest of the group. The next oldest was a very physically fit LEO who was about 15 years my junior. Average age of the class was 30 something. Nevertheless did ok with the various drills and came home with my certificate which I am quite proud of despite the aforementioned challenges.
