  1. Not really. It's a light polymer gun just like the Glock. After the break in you could try some ammo with a lower muzzle velocity, that would ease the recoil a bit. You'd probably do better with a heaver full metal gun if recoil is an issue.
  2. "Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc said on Tuesday it would stop selling hunting rifles and ammunition at 125 stores and forecast 2019 profit below analysts’ expectations, sending its shares down 10 percent." https://www.reuters.com/article/us-dicks-sporting-results-idUSKBN1QT22G?fbclid=IwAR2kEnirpR0A7PugQBBcT2ZOyWuvokWW-_akCOW1Xos80-Slev40hwor5C0 So first you stop selling any guns other than hunting rifles. Then when sales go in the tank because, well, gun owners all hate you and foot traffic in the store drops. You decide to drop hunting rifles and ammo too. I guess? I'd like to know what Reebok did to get the boot though.
  3. I bought one last year, it's a great gun IMHO. The trigger out of the box is around a 3-4 pound pull with an unbelievably short reset. The single issue that I had was it's really manufactured as a NATO gun with a heavy slide spring that required full power ammo to cycle properly. I emailed their support, got a response the next day and they sent out a softer spring. No charge. I have several thousand rounds through it now and use it for steel matches, it runs flawlessly.
  4. They wanted me to upload a copy of my FID they didn't ask for a DL though.
  5. I've used target sports for my last few orders. Shipping is free if you order a case, it arrived via Fedex in about 2 days. It came in an unmarked box, so anyone walking by wouldn't know what was in the box. If you shoot federal ammo there is a rebate available now too.
  6. There is an actual, legal, paper recall drive that's getting organized. There was an article in the APP about it awhile ago: https://www.app.com/story/news/politics/new-jersey/2019/01/14/recall-phil-murphy-petition/2568699002/ It's being organized by three woman on Facebook, they're looking for volunteers to get signatures and for notaries. The FB page for one of the woman organizing this is here https://www.facebook.com/talkingterry This has more discussion and lists some events: https://www.facebook.com/events/369048720555804/?active_tab=discussion A march on Trenton is being organized for 3/26 here: https://www.wethepeopleofnj.com I can't argue it's not a long shot, but with all the bitchin we all do here about comrade Murphy, and since this seems like a legitimate effort these people are making, anyone who can give offer some support really should. IMHO.
  7. Done. Alexander Roubian at, NJ2AS raffles off rifles periodically. He just had one last month. Maybe it'd be worth contacting him to see what the issues are with the state.He can process purchases through his website but he might have some other helpful information. https://www.nj2as.org/giveaway_announced
  8. Thanks for pointing this out. I'd assumed amazon would scrub any 2A org from their charities list. I buy a fair bit of junk from amazon so it was great to be able to do this. In case anyone else wants to use CNJFO for amazonsmile you have to spell out the entire name, the search won't find CNJFO.
  9. I thought that I'd update this since I'd decided to order from TS. I ordered a case of 9mm from them on Monday that was about $.02 per round cheaper than what FM was showing on their web site + the free shipping (FM showed all 9mm out of stock on their website when I checked). FedEx is delivering the ammo today (Thursday). Hard to beat that kind of service especially since FM would've taken about 2 weeks plus the cost of delivery.
  10. I too had been using freedom but I've been looking at www.targetsportsusa.com for my next order. The prices seem OK and the ship bulk orders free. Anyone have any experience with them?
  11. I've been toying with selling my CZ 75D PCR, mostly because It's killing me to have to pin the 5 14rd mags that I have for it. It's in excellent condition. If you're interested I'll post a couple of pictures.
  12. Apparently you have 180 (now 179 I guess) days to address your over 10 round magazines but you're at risk bringing them to the range in the mean time. I found this on the NJ firearms Facebook page: "Evan Nappen was speaking at a US LawShield seminar near me this evening, I wanted to get clarification on a couple of items regarding the magazine ban. Two questions for him were: 1) Does he see any issue with us keeping 15 round magazines in our home defense firearms during the 180 day compliance period 2) During the compliance period, are we ok to continue taking our 15 round magazines to the range and use them? His answer to #1, during the compliance period, he doesn't see an issue continuing to have 15 round magazine in our home defense firearm. His answer to #2, however, there is no provision in the law that permits us to continue taking the magazines to the range. The law actually prohibits the transfer of 15 round magazines, and that prohibition is not covered by the compliance period. He actually sees it as a conflict in the law. He came right out and advised the room to NOT transport magazines with more than 10 round capacity unless you are taking them to a gunsmith for modification." The statement accompanying the law states... “The bill’s provisions are effective immediately, but allow for a 180-day grace period to transfer, render inoperable, or voluntarily surrender a semi-automatic rifle or magazine that will be unlawful under the bill.” There is no provision to allow for the use, just the transfer, etc
  13. This model Canik has a 5.2 inch barrel which is longer than the 4.9 inch barrel on my Beretta M9A1. so I'm not thinking it's a mid sized gun at all. I own a CZ 75D PCR which is a great gun and more accurate than I am. I've been thinking about picking up something new to use for the steel matches that I'm currently using the Beretta for. Not that the Beretta doesn't perform very well. I wanted something that would perform reasonably well out of the box that I could tweak later if I chose to.. One of the other options I've been considering is the Glock 34 gen 5 (barrel length 5.31). You'll see these on gun broker for a 'buy now' price starting around $725. Personally I didn't care for the stock trigger on these so I felt I would need to replace that to start with. The Canik has a very nice 3 to 4 lbs pull with a reset that I thought was better then the Glock, with a price point at $480. Both guns are marketed as competition with match grade barrels. Both shot accurately for me when I tried them at different times. So given $725 + a new trigger for the Glock and $480 for the Canik with most everything else seeming similar I thought the Canik was worth some consideration. So I thought I'd see if anyone here had a bit more experience with a Canik that could let me know about any downsides I missed by only putting a few rounds though it.
  14. OK, anything more specific?
  15. A buddy that I shoot with brought his new Canik TP9sfx to the range the other day. I don't own any striker fired pistols and never really thought about picking one up until I played with the Canik a little. My friend loves it, although he's only put a couple hundred rounds thorough it. The reviews and YouTube videos are mostly positive, plus these things are only going for somewhere around $480 to $500 on gun broker for what looks a lot like a Walther PPQ clone. Anyone have any history with one of these guns they'd like to share with the class?
