  1. I’ve been thinking about these lately. Not sure if anyone has used them but they aren’t hollow points and are made as a defensive round. I need to do some research on them though… https://www.underwoodammo.com/9mm-luger-90gr-xtreme-defender-solid-monolithic-self-defense-ammo-815-1.html
  2. You’ll like it. I have a Henry golden boy and it is a lot of fun. Sometimes I take it out just to look at it it’s so cool
  3. Nj outdoor show was moved to August
  4. It was mandatory to do one of three things, convert them, get them out of the state or turn them in. From what I have read they had 0 people turn them in so I guess everyone did one of the other two options or there was a huge boating accident. Let's have a moment of silence for all those magazines lost at sea
  5. X-Five is super sweet. My last purchase came down to that or a Walther PPQ 5 inch. I ended up getting the PPQ which is probably the most natural pointing pistol I have ever tried. It is amazing so I don’t ever regret buying it but I still think about the X-five. I would also suggest you check out a CZ 75 of some sort. I often have a toss up between the PPQ and my CZ75 sp01 as to which is my best. They are both very well made and accurate shooters. I usually give the nod the the Walther because it is pretty much perfect for me out of the box. I bought tritium sights for it but haven’t gotten around to putting them on yet because I just shoot that gun so well with the stock sights that I’m afraid to screw with it. -Jim
  6. Unfortunately I just heard that the UK’s top shooter Amber Hill is not going to be able to compete as she tested positive for COVID. It’s a shame, strong competition always brings out the best during the Olympics… -Jim
  7. Meh, take out suicides and drug/gang related shootings and as a country we have less gun related issues than the EU, that is the reality. Fix the issues with the gangs and drugs and figure out how to help people who want to kill themselves and we get rid of 95% of the issue but that doesn’t push the narrative so we can’t do that.
  8. I can actually tell you where this came from, point 13 on this page on the state police website https://www.nj.gov/njsp/firearms/firearms-faqs.shtml Previously they mentioned that those types listed were legal for home defense but they don’t say that now, just that the ones listed aren’t hollow points by the State police standards. Doesn’t mean the Judiciary won’t though... as we see with the security guard recently charged for having critical duty in his work gun. -Jim
  9. I’ve been doing laser training more lately too. I can probably stretch my ammo supplies/budget with more with laser/dryfire training and more focused live fire training to use less ammo for training while still keeping/working on skills. At least that’s my plan -Jim
  10. I don’t need anything really but I was checking prices this morning. 38 special is averaging $2 a round FMJ, 357 mag is all over the place from $2 - $8 per round 9mm and 45acp prices (when you can find them) are just crazy. $1.50 and up a round for 9mm and $2 and up a round for 45 acp. Even the off calibers like 41 mag and 32 acp are starting to get some wacky pricing. Anyone just getting into it now is in for a shock... -Jim
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
