  1. They have issued permits to carry a handgun, not many, but some. Those people have done quals. The process is established, but because everybody gets told "don't even bother, you won't get it" most PDs have never had to find out what process is acceptable

    What do you wear normally? The gun you can conceal will vary depending on that. If you're a buff gym-rat who wears slim fit shirts, you may want something slim and small that you can carry AIWB (P365 or Hellcat). If you're more like me and carry a bit of a gut, IWB at 3-4 o'clock might be a better choice. If you're carrying a lot of weight, a full size handgun OWB under a baggy shirt may be the ticket. If you sit in a vehicle all day, you may want to look at a shoulder rig under a jacket. The answer to these questions will help you decide what physical size the gun should be. Have you handled an XD? The grip safety is similar in theory, but not the same in practice. The XD trigger is also a million miles from a 1911 trigger. I would not get too attached to a grip safety, especially on a striker fired gun. All the other striker fired polymer guns are perfectly safe without one. Hell, even the other all steel, single action guns are perfectly safe without one. Also, pick a gun you can shoot well. Some guns are just not a good fit for some people. I shoot Glocks pretty well and that's what I carry. However, I don't shoot the large frame Glocks well at all as they are just that bit too big and blocky for my hand, so would never carry a G20, G21, G30, G40, G41, etc.
  3. I'm pretty sure the rules for changing the Administrative Code take a little longer than that. Any changes have to be published in the NJ Register for public review and comment, right?
  4. Speaking for myself - applying now, even if I am denied again, is going to have no detrimental effect on me (except maybe make me a bit more pissed). I already have a denial on my record. Another one won't make any difference. I don't even have to go to much effort. I plan to use the same $50 postal order that I used the first time around (hopefully they don't expire) so I can skip the trip to the post office. BIG TIP: NJSP don't take person checks for this. It has to be a PO. If I get ahead of the rush - great! I don't see me having my day in court for at least a couple of months anyway. The BG checks aren't going to complete overnight. If everyone else wants to wait a see what happens to me, I'm good with that. I won't be stuck in a massive queue. Why the requirement to not look at your holster? That is contrary to every bit of training I have received.
  5. I like you HE and respect all the good advice and experience you have shared over the years here. However, I have to take exception here. What NJ has been telling Police Chiefs to do (deny on grounds of lack of JN), telling Superior Court Judges to do (deny on grounds of lack of JN), telling Appeal court Judges to do (deny on grounds of lack of JN), and telling the NJ Supreme Court to do (deny on grounds of lack of JN) has just been shown to be unconstitutional from the day it was written - the 2nd Amendment was never changed in all that time so it's meaning has not changed in all that time. There have been countless attempts to explain the plain language of the 2nd Amendment to all these people for decades, but they have persisted in pushing their illegal scheme. Now I am really struggling to understand why the people of New Jersey should patiently wait for the same people who have been enforcing their illegal scheme to come up with a new scheme, when the simplest and most expedient solution is for them to: Just. Stop. Doing. It.
  6. As Dan Schmutter said on your show. A superior court judge who gets one of these applications across his desk will be in a bind. I am perfectly happy to make them squirm after denying us our rights for decades. In my view they have to have been deliberately ignorant to fail to understand the plain language in the 2nd Amendment to keep denying people over and over again, no matter how many times it was explained in legal briefs. I'd be just fine if they were thrown in jail for breaking their oath to uphold the Constitution. The 2nd Amendment didn't change today. It was just made undeniably clear that JN has been illegal all along. Any further denying of our rights is inexcusable.
  7. Since I was already denied in 2018, for me it is just checking yes instead of no for 1 question and filling in 4 more boxes. No big deal. I'm going to submit ASAP as the background check is likely to be stretched out to the maximum 60 days, or more anyway. Maybe in 2 months TPTB will have figured out they don't have any wriggle room left.
  8. The application is not online - you still need to submit the paper form in triplicate. When I applied through NJSP back in 2017 they sent me to Morphotrack again for the fingerprints. I was told at that time that that would initiate the national background check too. I got my quals done with Robert Bajor who is listed on the NJSP web site. He gave me a completed RPO form which I do not know will be accepted for non RPO applications. He did say that if I needed it in a different format, he would be happy to sign that too.
  9. I have bought a few different holsters over the years. Some for competition and some for carry. The most comfortable IWB style I find is the leather/kydex hybrid holsters. I have a couple of Comp-tac MTAC holsters which are great but do not accommodate a light. I recently got a Cross Breed LD2.0 for my Glock 19 with TLR-1HL which carries very nicely too, but they don't list one for a VP9. I am less in favor of the Bravo Concealment holsters as the sweat guard is very narrow and I find the rear sight digs into me too much.
  10. NJ law is clearly unconstitutional. I have no issue seeing a Superior Court Judge squirm as they try to figure out if they should uphold JN and break their oath of office, or allow a permit and piss off the powers that be in NJ. ETA: There is typically one 'gun judge' in each county that handles all the permit applications. I have no sympathy for someone who has repeatedly shat on people's rights for years.
  11. They can pass whatever they like. Whether it stands up to judicial scrutiny is another matter. Their so-called laws will be in force until a judge throws them out. Sadly, there is no consequence for politicians to do this, even though they swear to uphold the Constitution when they take office.
  12. I did my quals 10 days ago. I'll submit my app next week, once I have collected 3 signatures and made a decision on how snarky I'm going to be in my "letter of need"
  13. It is right at the end of option 2 1. Completion of a firearms training course substantially equivalent to the firearms training approved by the Police Training Commission as described by N.J.S.A. 2C:39-6j; 2. Submission of an applicant's most recent handgun qualification scores utilizing the handgun(s) he or she intends to carry as evidenced by test firings administered by a certified firearms instructor of a police academy, a certified firearms instructor of the National Rifle Association, or any other recognized certified firearms instructor; or 3. Passage of any test in this State's laws governing the use of force administered by a certified instructor of a police academy, a certified instructor of the National Rifle Association, or any other recognized certified instructor.
  14. I'm not assuming anything, but I do know they can't just change them on a whim. The NJAC has a process which must be followed to make any changes - and that includes drafting the change, publishing it in the NJ Register, waiting a required period for public comment followed by a review. That all takes time and I'm planning to get my application in next week.
  15. Can't you just take the win? Some sage advice - "Don't go borrowing trouble"
  16. A good indication of being qualified would be to shoot the NJ Police HQC1 or HQC2 course of fire. Details are here: https://www.state.nj.us/lps/dcj/agguide/firearms2001.pdf
  17. JFCOAB! Will some of you please just stop spouting conjecture and look up what you need to do? Read this and read it again if you don't get it the first time. Pay particular attention to part b) - you have to satisfy ONE of the THREE requirements. Number 2 is a shooting qualification. You don't need to do a class at all - assuming you can shoot already. If you can't pass the shooting qualification today, walking onto the range cold with no warm-up, I strongly recommend getting basic firearms and marksmanship training before even thinking of carrying in public. Having your gun on you does jack shit if you don't know how to use it without hitting things other than your target.
  18. I know it's hard to believe, but NJ was not chomping at the bit to update their forms and procedures.
  19. The statutes and Admin Code tell you what you need. I will be scrutinizing them and getting my app in ASAP. Making assumptions based on what other States require is folly.
  20. I'm working on it. I have a contact that does RPO quals, but he uses a form specific to RPO - I passed BTW. I am working on getting a more generalized form signed by him.
  21. It is a paper form and you need to submit supporting documentation, such as your shooting qualification.
  22. If CR is not amenable to such a meet-up, we could fire up another clay day at one of the WMAs. There are lots of us that have hunting licenses.
