  1. Driving across a bridge where someone jumps is nowhere near the same as the guy standing next to me pointing his gun anywhere other than down range. C'mon get real. Dumb comparisons.
  2. When I first saw this thread I thought it was some latecomer comment to the earlier suicide. It's difficult to believe this has happened twice This is shocking and tragic for everyone involved. I was just thinking that now that my business has slowed down for the holidays I would take a day to go to RTSP, which is the only range I go to. But admittedly this is disconcerting and you wonder if those similarly inclined begin to identify RTSP as the suicide range. As much as I like the facility and people who work there it gives you pause
  3. The Ruger sr22 was my first gun and a great entry level gun imo. I always recommend renting the ones you think you'd like to buy. Try before you buy. I've changed my mind more than once. RTSP has a pretty good selection. Good luck.
  4. Read today that the last gun store in San Francisco is closing it's doors. It had opened in 1952 and been the only gun store in the city since 1999. New requirements would have; 1) had them videotape every individual sale and 2) report all ammo purchases to the police. Just the straw that broke the camel's back
  5. As someone who has been to RTSP (and expects to go again) I have no problem with the new rules. I think they strike the right balance.
  6. Renting guns, I would guess, is an important source of revenue for ranges like RTSP and I doubt it will change. An 18 min. video; chat with a range officer, you're good to go (figuratively speaking).
  7. Is possessing a FID (or someone in the group possessing a FID) before you rent common sense. Or is that "crazy talk".
  8. I should clarify. My fear is that this individual may decide to take someone with him. That's not going to be the case with hangings or od's. Or his first shot goes awry and hits the poor schlub standing next to him. You want to kill yourself you'll find a way. Just don't involve me because I decided to visit the range the same day you did.
  9. I really hate these stories. I understand the desire of the range owners to act as diplomats of the sport and rent guns to the general public. But it does serve as a magnet of sorts to someone who's mentally unbalanced and couldn't otherwise obtain a gun or just wants to go out in a very public way. There's got to be a better way. (I know I'm assuming they were a renter but I believe that has been the case in other range suicides)
  10. I've rented handguns there by myself
  11. There was an article in the Hunterdon County Democrat back in February http://www.nj.com/hunterdon-county-democrat/index.ssf/2015/02/indoor_gun_range_coming_to_raritan_township.html If this is for real the website needs work. I like tongue-in-cheek but this is ridiculous. From a design standpoint the website sucks...it's really bad!
  12. 1.Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee. 2.Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible place in the universe. 3.Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act. 4.Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal; someone always answers. 5.Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now. 6.Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone will ring. 7.Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know INCREASES dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with. 8.Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, IT WILL!!! 9.Law of Biomechanics - The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach. 10.Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena - At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk. 11.The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold. 12.Murphy's Law of Lockers - If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers. 13.Law of Physical Surfaces - The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug. 14.Law of Logical Argument - Anything is possible IF you don't know what you are talking about. 15.

But don't make an appointment and you'll stay sick.
  13. Hey when I was in high school (late 60's) there was a gun club. They sometimes actually brought their guns to school and left them in their lockers until the meeting after school
  14. It's been over 4 years since this project started. I know from some of the posts that results have been provided to NJ2AS, although how recently I don't know. I can't find anything on their website. Can anyone provide a link where the results of this survey have been posted. Apologies if it's already somewhere in this thread. I didn't review all 30+ pages of posts
