  1. Firstly, I found the US Carburetor website confusing but from what I could discern, the USG kit involves removing and modifying the gen's carburetor. In contrast the Hutch kit seems to be a much cleaner install that requires very minimal changes to the genny. If you watch their video I linked above, you will see that it is very easy to switch back and forth between propane and gasoline. Lastly, and a big consideration for me, is that on the gen itself, the Hutch kit provides a quick disconnect port and the propane regulator attaches to the propane tank. I.e. I don't have to mount the propane regulator to the outside housing of my genny. It would get knocked into all the time in my garage (likely by my knees, lol). My understanding (if correct) is that the USG kit would require the regulator assembly to be mounted to the generator housing. So overall struct me as a much cleaner design that would also enable me to switch seemlessly between propane and gasoline as the situation might call for.
  2. Brand of what??? Per my post above, the generator is a Honda EU3000is. The propane kit is from Hutch Mountain. www.hutchmountain.com
  3. Just received the propane conversion kit yesterday. Took about three weeks to arrive, so patience is required. I will post an update once I install it. Am pleased with the design and looks like a relatively easy installation. The propane enters the engine via an adapter plate that mounts between the air filter housing and carburetor.
  4. Collier-Mills, and I believe also Clinton, now allow up to .30 caliber. I shot my RPR (556) and Troy A4 Other(556) at Clinton several months ago. Had no issues. The game warden/LEO came by twice to check for hunting licenses. I am sure he observed what firearms I had been shooting but did not say anything regarding them.
  5. OP, I recommend you visit Weshoot (formerly Garden State Shooting Center) in Lakewood. They have a good selection of new firearms as well as firearm rentals. It is a public range and a welcoming experience. I was formerly a member and have purchased most of my firearms there. If you plan to go to rent a firearm, recommend you call first as they may require you to go with a friend or bring your own firearm with you.
  6. Several days ago I ordered a Hutch Mountain propane conversion kit for my EU3000is. I like the fact that the propane pressure regulators are at the tank side and do not have to be mounted on the generator. Looking forward to receiving and installing it. Will post an update when I do. The video below shows it in use.
  7. Congrats on your purchase. I have shot one and really liked it. Recommend you check out the Sig Sauer Romeo 5.
  8. Midwayusa has Federal American Eagle 556x45 XM193 ammo in stock. 5 boxes of 100(500 total) for $234.99 (.47 per round). I received the notification this morning. Still showing available as of this time. Won't last long. Product #: 861045 Manufacturer #: XM193BL UPC #: 50029465062496
  9. Congrats Bob, am genuinely excited for you.
  10. I am not a lawyer. But I do not believe driving is a prerequisite to obtaining an NJFID and/or permit to purchase a handgun. So I assume your official State of NJ ID would suffice. With that said, please elaborate on your need. An aspiring new gun owner?
  11. I heard about this on 101.5 this morning. I find it very concerning. Also don’t forget that much of what you have on your phone may also be syncing up to the cloud depending how you have set your phone to backup and/or sync to the cloud (Apple, Google, Verizon, etc.). So even wiping your phone may or may not remove what is held in the cloud.
  12. Was in Costco in Hazlet on the weekend and they have Foodsavers on sale. This is not the exact model I purchased earlier this year but I assume it functions the same. Plus it is on sale as are the refill boxes.
  13. I just sat down and donated to NRA, SAF, ANJRPC, and CNJFO. (Already had recently donated to NJ2AS.). The total of the donations was significant enough to cause financial discomfort, and I would not want it any other way.
  14. I am in Middletown. Lost power at 11:30am yesterday. Came back at about 1:30pm. However was not stable for the first 30 minutes. By that point, had just prepped my generator and had it at the ready. At about 8:00pm suddenly lost power again. Wtf? Put the generator into action by 9:00pm and ran essentials off of that over night. Woke up at 6:00am and power was back and stable. Generator (a Honda EU3000)was still running in Eco mode but gas tank by that time was almost empty. Total runtime on a full tank in Eco mode and a modest load is approx 9-10 hours. p.s. Every 2 months since buying the gen eight years ago, I take It out and run it for 30 minutes with a small load on it. Gives me confidence it will work when I really need to rely on it.
  15. I only use brass in all my firearms. Just not worth it to me to risk impacting the reliability of my firearms to save a few dollars. Or worse, damaging them in some way.
  16. In March we purchased one from Costco. I think it is a FoodSaver. It has worked very well. In addition to preserving food (eg frozen meats) longer, we find that it makes more efficient use of the space in our freezer.
  17. Congrats, I have four of them(43,26,19,34). Great first choice. As was mentioned above, reliable, lots of support, mags plentiful and reasonably priced, etc. Don’t forget to purchase extra mags. There may come a day in the far away future where you may regret not having purchased extras. Now with your new gun purchased, learn all you can about it, safety, maintenance, and so on. Youtube is a great resource. Absolutely take a formal training class. Now you can start saving up for the other fine firearms recommended above. You WILL eventually own a variety of them. E.g. I also own a Ruger GP100 38/357 revolver. Last but not least, join the 2A organizations that are fighting for your rights. NRA, SAF, ANJRPC, CNJFO,NJ2AS to name a few key ones. There are powerful forces out there that are working to strip you of your right to own that Glock you just purchased.
  18. Dam! 410Guy is correct. According to the Division of Fish and Game website, they have closed the ranges for at least July due to Covid furloughs. So the ranges were closed due to covid, then finally open a few months ago, now reclose due to covid furloughs. Wonderful, what a bunch of bullshit.
  19. A few addl thoughts: -recommend you and your wife rent a firearm before you make a purchase decision. In particular, recoil from a 12 guage is very significant. My wife could never shoot one(well maybe once, lol). An AR-15 platform, may be superior and more controllable depending in the use case. Also aiming proficiency is just as important with a shotgun. Remember, there is a lawyer attached to every bullet/pellet you shoot. -I do not recommend the closet and trigger lock idea. There are a number of safes available for long guns that would provide more secure storage with the ability to access it reasonably quickly. And yes, welcome!!!
  20. I want to also emphasize what Bob has stated. To my knowledge there are no non-resident carry permits that are recognized by PA. A few years back they did recognize a few such as Texas Non-resident which I had obtained while in Texas on a business trip. I then conceal carried in PA for exactly ONE glorious day before they stopped recognizing them. My taste of freedom was wonderful but short lived.
  21. You may wish to consider Easton Fish and Game in Easton, Pa. Yearly membership is only $50. They have a 100 yard rifle range and several handgun ranges. All outdoor. I have been a member there for about 6 years.
  22. Welcome from Middletown. I second the recommendation to first rent and try out a handgun before purchasing. It is helpful to see how the gun feels in your hand under recoil while shooting. Regarding the S&W 15-22, I have had mine for 5 years and it has been a great fun gun to shoot at the range. Have shot approx 3,500 rounds through mine with rarely any issues. I almost exclusively shoot CCI AR Tactical and Mini-Mags thru it. Garden State Shooting Center (now known as WeShoot) in Lakewood has a good selection of rental firearms. I also have purchased most of my firearms there. As mentioned above, Howell Gun Works is a good place. Also, Legend Firearms (Ira) which is located inside the Union Hill Gun Club (in Monroe) where I am also a member. Also recommend you look into acquiring a NJ Hunting license. That will enable you to shoot your long guns at the wildlife management areas. (Shooting the 15-22 outdoors is the most fun.) Fyi, Podcasts I listen to include: 1) Gun for Hire (NJ specific), Gun Talk, and American Armed Radio. My favorite Youtube channels include: hickok45, sootch00, IraqiVeteren8888, Paul Harrell, and gunblue490, among many others.
  23. I recommend you check out Garden State Shooting Center, now known as WeShoot, located about a mile away from SS. I used to be a member there and always regarded them highly.
  24. I read the filing. I appreciate the NRA/ANJRPC’s involvement and support. Am planning my next set of donations to them. The continued closer of indoor ranges (just like the closure of gun stores and outdoor ranges) clearly shows the hate, disgust, and vindictiveness the Gov and AG have for us. I know I am singing to the choir. It is just so profoundly disrespectful to someone like myself who has lived here my whole life. Last week I posted on Facebook that he would keep them closed until most/many are financially crippled to the point they will never be able to reopen. Given the filing, I anticipate he will allow them to reopen just prior to the date they are required to respond to the lawsuit. Hopefully, they can continue the suit for monetary damages, etc and set a permenant legal precedent. Gotta run...can’t be late for my massage appointment.
