  1. Yeah, like everyone has said, prices are high but you can get equipment, it’s consumables that are really hard to find and stupidly expensive right now. Pistol primers in particular are super unavailable and when they come up in the market they are just insane on the pricing. I see some rifle primers come up more often but still pretty rare in the last 6 months... -Jim
  2. Not holding my breath on this happening. A better question is- How soon until the rest of the US is feeling NJ’s pain? If the Republicans lose in GA, one of the first things Dems are going to do is pass all the anti-gun crap Bloomberg paid for. It’s easier for them to go after us than fix all the problems that take real thought and effort. We’ve seen that here in NJ for decades. Literally fiddling while Rome burns. NJ will never be able to dig itself out of it’s fiscal hole and the Federal government is just as bad. All this stuff is just distraction from the fact that they are all unable to fix any real issues. JMHO -Jim
  3. Look at the laws in those places, less guns means less need for reloading. They also are not in the middle of mass rioting and a contentious election. As to why they can’t ship to the US, thank the UN arms treaty that all these countries signed onto and I am sure Biden will try and get the US into if he can. -Jim
  4. One more for you. Sections e and f cover transport https://law.justia.com/codes/new-jersey/2019/title-2c/section-2c-39-6/
  5. Here you go Self Defense https://law.justia.com/codes/new-jersey/2019/title-2c/section-2c-3-4/ Defense of other https://law.justia.com/codes/new-jersey/2019/title-2c/section-2c-3-5/ Defense of property note in NJ defense of property never justifies deadly force and use of a gun in NJ is defined as deadly force. https://law.justia.com/codes/new-jersey/2019/title-2c/section-2c-3-6/ Here’s the statute on hollow points as well. Note it just has locations you can possess hollow points not actions you can perform https://law.justia.com/codes/new-jersey/2019/title-2c/section-2c-39-3/
  6. Ask your instructor to find a statute that says it is legal to use Hornady critical defense...Here's a hint, there isn't one. No law in NJ says anything about what you can use for Self Defense in your home, only where you can possess hollow points and "in your home" is definitely stipulated. If you must fire a gun in SD in NJ you will most likely be charged with something regardless of what type of ammo you are using. However possession of hollow points in an unlawful manner should not be on that list of charges since you were in your home. Where guns are concerned in NJ, you are assumed to be guilty until you are proven innocent, that is the fact. All the discussion of what type of ammo is just window dressing. I am not a lawyer though and I suspect your trainer is not either so if you want to, you can ask a lawyer but the answer is going to most likely be "maybe" because NJ's laws are too arbitrary. Added... I found this discussion on what the State Police had to say about it in 2011 so not sure how valid it is or if it is still good in 2020. https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/new-jersey-law-on-ammo-definitive.628312/ "-It is legal to own and store hollow point ammunition in your home -It is legal to purchase hollow point ammunition in a store -It is legal to transport hollow point ammunition to range for sporting use (and for that matter in most hunting situations) -It is legal to purchase, own and use Corbon Powerball, Hornady Critical Defense and Federal EFMJ (including Federal LE EFMJ +P loads) at range and in personal defense situations in home pursuant to NJ state law on use of force in home defense situation -NJSP ballistics unit does not consider the rounds mentioned above as hollow point or dum dum bullets and will testify as such if required -It *may* be illegal to *use* hollow point bullets in a home defense situation, however, this is a gray area. NJSP will not make an arrest higher than 4th degree in this circumstance and if not associated with another unlawlful act will likely not make an arrest at all. However, should criminal or civil charges be pursued by gunshot victim at later date, you may be liable and charged with use." So that is probably where your instructor got the Hornady Critical Defense from. Hopefully none of us ever get a chance to test this out... -Jim
  7. Yep, same as when people remove the firing pin block on a 1911 series 80.
  8. Didn't one of the GI Joe characters carry a gun that looks like that? Yeah, found it. GI Joe Ambush rifle 1990 https://www.ebay.com/itm/GI-Joe-1990-AMBUSH-Rifle-Gun/400081172969
  9. A couple of people I know have them. I think they look like the guns from Planet of the Apes but they seem to work so if you need one then "ya dance with who ya brung" I guess. Good luck finding one right now though. Inexpensive PCC is a really hot commodity in the current world... -Jim
  10. I agree but to get 60 - 70% of the functionality you want to try out for free while deciding what you do want to spend money on isn't bad... -Jim
  11. Well, free is good if you have an iPhone or android https://apps.apple.com/us/app/shot-trainer/id1419858879 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.csl1911a1.livefiretrainer&hl=en&gl=US
  12. Generally you can get really expensive match stuff like Laupa pistol match stuff but $14+ a box of 50 is crazy money. .15 - .20 a round for 22lr right now is a decent price. I don’t think we are going to see .05 a round again anytime soon I’m pretty loaded up on 22lr right now but I try to put up deals when I find them to help out everyone else. -Jim
  13. ... and they are gone. Hope someone was able to grab some...
  14. https://www.sgammo.com/product/22-lr-ammo/325-round-brick-22-lr-federal-automatch-bulk-pack-40-grain-lead-1200-fps-ammo-am2 Not a bad price in the current market and it’s tough to find even 22lr in bulk lately. Get them while they are still available... -Jim
