  1. @67gtonut (Troy): Thanks again for orchestrating this get-together. I, along with all the others here really do appreciate your efforts to make this fun idea a reality. BTW - If the weather permits, will you be driving your GTO to RTSP that afternoon so those car buffs amongst us can see it up close to admire it....? AVB-AMG
  2. Troy: Depending on the date and our travel plans, I would enjoy participating as well.... Thanks for making the effort to do this for everyone... AVB-AMG
  3. @Krdshrk: FYI - As per your suggestion, I have tried out purchasing some cigars from an online retailer: Small Batch Cigar (www.smallbatchcigar.com) My latest purchase is a Pack of 5 of Liga Privada No. 9 Toro Tubo Which, with my occasional consumption and enjoyment should last me the rest of the summer.... Thanks again for steering me to that venue since it really does help save money on the higher end cigars. AVB-AMG
  4. @Zeke: That really does look nice with all of the intricate detailing.... I just bet Mrs. Zeke would love to have one just like that for her upcoming birthday present... Yes, it may be an expensive year for you..... AVB-AMG
  5. Sounds like you all had a really good time out at LVSC’s yesterday. You picked a rather toasty day to go clay shooting, but I am glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. If you want some additional company for your next time you plan you go over there please let me know. All the best....! AVB-AMG Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. @Smokin .50: Unfortunately, my wife and I will be down at our beach house at the Outer Banks of NC, that entire week in July, so I will not be able to join you all. FYI - As a member at LVSC, I try to drive over there to shoot clays about 2-3 times a month for about 8 months of the year. For those who are into clay shooting, as well as those who are interested in trying it out and learning...I highly recommend attending this worthwhile CNJFO outing at one of the better sporting clay courses in the NJ/NY/PA region. It is a wonderful visually interesting and creatively designed course that is laid out with three progressively more challenging stations (green/blue/orange), that are positioned partially around the man-made pond of the former quarried pit. The other stations are sort of surgically threaded around and through the property of the ruins of the concrete exterior structural walls of the former quarry buildings and compound. For those of you who do not have a shotgun, you may rent one there, along with purchasing the necessary shotgun shells. If you want, you may also rent a 3-wheel push cart for your shot guns, ammo, and stuff, or for those who prefer, you can rent a golf cart for the same purpose. Their "Pro Shop" also sells a wide variety of shooting vests, hats and accessories. I wish you all the best and hope you have wonderful weather on July 25th.... AVB-AMG
  7. @gfl216: Just one more, FYI.... Saturday's are the major rental home switch days in the OBX and can be rather hectic during the high season, (now). Renters who are leaving that day from their OBX rental homes must be out of the house by between 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. in order to allow for the cleaning service access to do their thing. The next week's renters are usually allowed access to the house by 4:00 p.m. that day. Therefore, traffic is the heaviest in both directions on Saturday, with the worse traffic on Rt. 12 going north from, which is a two lane highway, starting when you turn left to head north off of Rt.l 158 (N. Croatan Hwy.). But unfortunately, in the high season, from about noon onward, you can expect heavy traffic volume, congestion and backups starting on the mainland just before reaching the Wright Memorial Bridge that crosses the Currituck Sound. If you can plan your trip to arrrive at that point prior to 12:00 noon, then you should be in much better shape and make plans to visit some interesting sites before you allowable house entry time. I hope you and your family and friends have nice weather this coming week and enjoy the beach....! AVB-AMG
  8. I Know.... No we wouldn't..... I know.... there is a special place in hell for those of you who..... ah, never mind.... I will try to be nice too https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/that-special-place-in-hell-is-getting-crowded/2017/12/12/9ac489a6-df89-11e7-8679-a9728984779c_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.700d5f2980e8 AVB-AMG
  9. The Proton Guns are exactly what I first thought of when I read the title of this thread..... AVB-AMG
  10. @gleninjersey: I read that book, GUN GUYS: A ROAD TRIP, (actually listened to it via Audible audio books), about two years ago, during my regular work commute. I found it to be very interesting, especially since he decided to try CCW and expressed his concerns and feelings about it through his various travels. AVB-AMG
  11. @Scorpio64: Thank you for posting this very interesting and important article. I think many shooters just assume that their eye protection is adequate for the purpose of shooting. The article you posted makes clear that you get what you pay for and not all eye glasses / eye protection can be counted upon to do its intended task. It is incumbent upon each of us to do the necessary research to determine what eye protection will do what we want it to and invest in it before we go to the range. FYI, awhile ago I did the extensive research and ultimately purchased two different shooting eye protection products, one to be used at an indoor range for handguns and rifles and a second different system with removable and interchangeable different colored lenses for outdoor sporting clay shooting. Both meet or exceed the important ballistic impact standards They are noted below.... AVB-AMG 1. Indoor Range Use: Wiley X – Talon Advanced Clear Lens w/ Matte Black Frame Product Number: CHTLN!1 MSRP: $95.00 http://www.wileyx.com/Tactical/ProductDetail/chtln1_talon-advanced-greyclearmatte-black-frame Characteristics: Shatterproof Selenite™ Polycarbonate Lenses that Meet the MIL-PRF-32432(GL) Ballistic Standards.

Outdoor Use – Sporting Clays: Randolph Engineering – Ranger XLW MSRP: $170.00 (Additional colored lenses available for additional cost) https://www.randolphusa.com/re-ranger/frames/build-ranger-xlw/#select-frame-options Background: The first RE Ranger products were crafted and engineered in the early 1990s by our late president Richard Waszkiewicz, the son of Randolph Engineering co-founder Jan Waszkiewicz. Richard partnered with the shooting industry’s leading optical experts to design and execute many of the original styles that form the base for our current line. Our proprietary NexPC™ lenses can withstand a 12-gauge shotgun blast from 10 yards away. All Ranger eyewear has been designed to flex, in order to absorb the force of projectiles before they reach your eye. RE Ranger is backed by the technology and the company culture that made Randolph Engineering an elite eyewear brand —and a dedicated partner to the U.S. military and Department of Defense for nearly four decades. Today, RE Ranger continues to strive to deliver the best possible products to our customers. We partner with Olympic and other elite shooters and coaches and spend endless hours field testing in order to create innovative, high quality, and exceptionally high-performance shooting eyewear. This is serious style for serious shooters. Designed from the ground up by our team of experienced optical engineers, the XLW is the industry’s first 8-base wrap frame specifically made for sport shooting. While some wrap eyewear may distort your vision, XLW lenses are always 100% distortion free. The Randolph Aviator has been standard-issue to U.S. military pilots since the 1980s, built to precise military specifications—MIL-S-25948, which are some of the most rigid set of manufacturing specs around. In 2999, Randolph won its first contract for the Frame of Choice (FOC) spectacle program, which provides the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and NASA with an alternative to standard-issue military spectacles. In 2017, Randolph continues to produce the HGU-4/P for the U.S. Army and Navy and air forces worldwide, and maintains the Frame of Choice contract, now in its fourth five-year term.
  12. I have two pet peeves when it comes to driving and started a dedicated thread here on NJGF awhile back. For those of you who are interested, click on the link below to see it, along with the many responses from others that it invoked... (BTW, Ignore the thread title... I screwed it up....) AVB-AMG
  13. On my street, almost all of my neighbors have installed various levels of dramatic exterior house illumination, a current fashion trend that I do not understand, nor subscribe to. So who really gives a f—k what your house looks like at night in the dark! BTW, an ugly house during the daytime is still ugly when illuminated at night. Some folks have spent a ton of money on their lights and like you and others have already noted, it is a real unfortunate distraction at night when we all are trying to sleep. Also, what homeowners are looking at their own house at night when they are inside it....? It makes no sense to me other than some people think that theatrical lighting may improve their property values or are jumping on a faddish trend, (Spoiler alert: it won’t...) AVB-AMG
