  1. So the state that still uses IBM System 36 mini computers went to online FIDs. Great. Any bets for how long it will take to hack these so criminals can purchase guns in your name? Do FFLs verify the validity of a DL by number for example? Or just look at the name, address and photo? Electronic is not always better.
  2. Yeah, I have to talk to the FFL but more than likely I’ll pay in full if they want me to..then apply for the permit either when they know the pistols are en route..or once they have them. I don’t think they’ll charge storage or anything. I just don’t want the permits to expire before the guns show up.
  3. I am about to order a couple of new handguns. I’m not sure how long it will take for these to actually show up at the shop but guessing more than a month......maybe more than several months. On permits, my town seems to be running at about 60 days last I heard. Slow for my town but not ridiculous. How are you guys dealing with orders of handguns that take this long? Are you placing the order and paying in full or close to it? Then applying for the P2P’s once its at the FFL? I don’t know of a better way to do it. thnx
  4. In a normal world, true. But we are waist deep in bizarro world. Hey...but I’d sure like to go to the Kabul Gun Show this fall. The selection will be awesome. Who couldn’t use a slightly used M4 with a nice acog and a 4x magnifier? IR laser and some IR goggles would be nice to have also. Plus a decent suppressor.
  5. Will the White House agree to be held responsible when the bills it supports and pass into law do harm to people?
  6. My concern about Kavanaugh is his rationality regarding AR-15’s and the assault weapons ban. Since AR-15s are in common use, they should not be banned. That rationale is flawed. What if AR-15s were not as commonly used? .410 shotguns are probably not in common use. Neither are FN Five-Sevens. So those can be banned? I get that common use can be part of an argument that claims to confirm a particular firearm should not be banned. But that is not the criteria we should be using. It should more like determining if the weapon is appropriate to its purpose and capable of being safely managed by its user. Thats it. I do think 5 justices will shoot down the NY law and help our situation. But given how things have been going lately, its hard to be absolutely certain of that.
  7. We know the four liberal justices will vote against the petitioners. Breyer, Sotomayor, Kagan and Roberts. The question is..how will Kavanaugh and Barrett vote. Of those two, I think Kavanaugh is the most questionable. My other concern is that states like NY, NJ will just ignore the ruling and change nothing. They learned that the Bill of Rights can be ignored. How would they do this? Declare “gun violence” a public health emergency and issue executive orders. So while I’m ordering a PPS... I am not counting on being able to legally carry it here in NJ. I also hope I’m wrong. I just noticed this thread. Although this emergency declaration makes no provisions like I described, I see nothing to stop governors from expanding the control.
  8. I’m not very familiar with lever action rifles.....but F&S says these are the best ever made. Possibly a bit subjective, but they probably don’t suck. https://www.fieldandstream.com/greatest-lever-guns-ever/ Henry does top the list.
  9. I first thought this Ad posted here was a joke. I was reading a thread related to Scotus.....and well... they look like dudes in black robes....... but then I realized these are probably current photos of the members of Kansas. Maybe the eye patch threw me off....
  10. I thought that was the other way around.... everything here is illegal.....unless there is decreed making an exception allowing it.
  11. I’m hearing the Taliban is putting everything but the Rick Astely CDs on E-Bay. Since there are no AR-15s, E-Bay shouldn’t have an issue with the auctions. Get ready to bid! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwj62NHPrcvyAhWRKVkFHZzsAqMQwqsBegQIBxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DdQw4w9WgXcQ&usg=AOvVaw0aHtehaphMhOCAkCydRLZU
  12. Bad news, RIP Mr. Hill I still have my vinyl copy of Fandango from when that album was originally released.
  13. I’ve been standing on this corner waiting for that crash... I think its been 3 years or more... Seems like the crash didn’t get the memo. In the mean time... everyone probably ought to make some money. Those that have their cash buried in the yard are losing money.
  14. Its coming for sure. Towns have been cutting services. Now with these values going up 15% ..20%...where ever its at now... they are looking at ways to turn that into tax revenue. I vaguely recall though....that reassessments may only be done so many years after the last one. We had one 2 years ago I think. Ever notice they ain’t so quick to reassess when things tank? And that RV plan has been discussed here. Not realistic for us right now...but for those who can do it..it makes a lot of sense. Not only would it be a big cash intake.... it would be a blast. I’d dump the 31 foot C though and buy a used Tiffin 40 foot diesel. Good question. But ain’t nuthin stopping the dems from making a new law. Fiat is what they do best.
  15. Wait a minute.... I think my friend rented that place and a bunch of us partied there every weekend. The Rolling Rock was flowing constantly. This place was a dump...but it worked for us. Probably would sell for $300 now if it wasn’t demo’ed.
  16. Belated Congrats. Keep us up on the goings on in Real America.
  17. We call that..... A Party....
  18. We get the representation we deserve. If we allow the R to be weak and do nothing but slow the spread of marxism.....that’s all we’ll ever get. And while it sickens me to see someone like Murphy win, it occurs to me that letting a weak candidate go down in flames may be the only way to cause the R party in this state to come to grips with reality. I’ll probably end up voting for the guy. But that reluctance is going to translate to lost votes that he desperately needs..... and its HIS fault. Not the voters. I give him no chance of winning based on bringing out support. His only chance is apathy for Murphy among dems.
  19. Ed, I don’t see this as believable. You don’t put your “positions” on issues on your website for a scenario where you don’t have the legislature. You say what you believe in and what you will argue for and fight for as Governor. Most of what I’ve read so far, in particular the 2A issues, are weak at best. He is arguing for Dem Light positions. Yes. This discussion seems to be about whether or not Jack C deserves our vote.
  20. From his website: Reform any law that violates an individual’s constitutional right to due process Grandfather in any firearm that was legally purchased, but that is deemed illegal in subsequent legislation Standardize the process by which firearms ID cards and gun carry permits are processed and approved, and oppose all increases in related fees Speed up gun permit application processes with “fast track” status for applicants who face imminent danger (e.g., victims of domestic violence) Advocate for “concealed carry” for certain dangerous professions Promote and fund additional resources to address the underlying, serious mental health crisis in our country that too often manifests itself in gun violence “Reform” any law that violates dues process. So he supports Red Flag laws. Just need a tweak.... “Grandfather in any firearm”..uh..how about oppose any law that make a firearm or accessory illegal? ”Standardize..”. ...uh... there is already “standardized state law..... how about criminalize slow walking of FPIDs. Or better yet. NICS is all thats needed. “Advocate for CC for “certain” dangerous professions.... Advocate???? Wth does that even mean? Someone tell him that law already exists. The problem is unaccountable leftist county judges imposing their ideology and not the law. Or better yet... How about “Advocating”... for Shall Issue.... Jack is very weak on 2A. I had hoped any R would be better than this. But this tells me he is a RINO and not a conservative. If he can’t be solid on these issues, I seriously doubt he will be solid on any conservative issue. He is trying to appease some right of center “moderates”. News Flash. These are liberals. Not right of center people. Very disappointing.
  21. Pretty much .... based on what I’ve read so far, which hasn’t been very much. My concern with some of these people is the best they will do is slow the slide to the left. They won’t boldly advance a conservative agenda. They’ll just compromise with the left and claim they won when all they did was allow them to get at least some of what the left wants and nothing of what we want. I’ll probably end up voting for they guy but part of me thinks letting it burn to the ground is the only way to ever get this state back.
  22. The problem is, I doubt that change will happen with this guy. From what I’ve seen, he’s a go along..get along RINO. Which is one reason he won the primary. A lot of RINO voters in this state. I think the only way he wins is if Murphy loses. Meaning... its apathy or hostility toward Murphy by Dem voters. That...and if Dems can’t cheat... because they will. Expect record turnout in Essex, Hudson, Middlesex and Bergen counties. I think this state is better off burning to ashes under radical Dems. Or rather... the country will be better off. Jersey needs to sink into the Atlantic. Its a lost cause.
  23. Its definitely nice down there. With the pair in the cart...I was clueless but my friend was laughing his ass off because I thought they wanted directions... the two women were laughing as they drove off. They could have just been effing with me. But the birthday girl was a train wreck we were a little concerned about. Other than those two situations, it was pretty calm. Nice wait staff where we were eating. The beer place was pretty good. My friends are on Arruda Terrace I think thats near Sumter Landing. I know the big food store was a quick ride over a bridge. It think thats near Sumter. Their other place was in a bit lower priced area on Escobar. I only remember that bec ...Pablo.... We were clearing out that house for them so they could list it for sale. It a nice lifestyle for sure. Great social scene. A lot of nice people. I’m not quite ready for it though. Still have a lot of welding to do!
  24. I’m not sure what it was called but I think it was the original one with the elevated pavillion in the middle for the band. Has what looks like a Spanish theme going on. There’s a newer one that has a lot more retail store fronts. That one is near a body of water. The one I was at has a radio station of some kind there. Saw the sign for it next to the open area. There were these two lovely drunk ladies who were probably about 60 or 65...so not all that old for the Villages.... they wanted to know if I wanted to take a ride through the trails in their golf cart. Claimed they weren’t sure where the trails were and could use a guide.... uh huh... Prior to that me and my friend were joined at our table by a woman who apparently was celebrating her birthday. And celebrating hard at that. Eventually her not so drunk friends found her and led her away. She seemed taken with my buddy. Friendly bunch of people that night. And this was all before 9:00. The band was 80’/90s pop and disco. So not my favorite but they actually did some Prince really well. As you wrote, its a neat place. It took a couple of days for me to get my bearings but its big like you said. And pretty much whatever kind of retail place you can think of....is there somewhere. And its clean as hell. I suppose there are some homes that aren’t kept up but I didn’t see any. It looked pretty much like a 200 square mile resort.
