  1. Does anyone know if you can ship the mags to a family member's second residence out of state where the mags are legal? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. I, for one, am counting down the days until this new location finally opens. I live 5 minutes away and have been making the trek up to the Randolph location for a few years now (I have a locker there). This will be a welcome addition to this area. I plan on spending quite a bit of time and money there which I cannot do at Randolph because of the distance. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. Take the parkway to exit 138 (Kenilworth), head west on the Boulevard and make a right onto 14th street to avoid 22. It'll drop you right next to it. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. Same thing here when I first applied for my FID. My company contracts that service out to workday and the local PD wouldn't pay for it (nor would I expect them to). I called HR to ask for a letter to be faxed to the PD and they refused after I told them what it was for. Finally I got HR to agree to write a letter to my which I said was for employment verification purposes for an unspecified application which I then faxed over to PD. I will use this approach going forward as long as the PD is OK with it. When I applied for my second FID after my move the new town said they don't even check with the employer so it never became an issue. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. I think you're onto something.Why not use some of their tactics against them? If we got a large enough organized, unarmed (I think armed would play into their hands), diverse (to counter the race message), peaceful protest at the state house that could block government functions for a period of time then maybe we could get some traction in Trenton or at the very least get a seat at the table.

  6. I hear ya but I've only been a part of the 2A community for the past few years since I purchased my first pistol. In 85 I was learning to tie my shoes lol. I'm still thinking long term that if we can get enough people in this state involved in the 2A over time we could make gun control a poison pill or political 3rd rail for any politician. Admittedly it's a long term strategy and not a tactical solution to the immediate problem of this bill. Using the military analogy I offered up earlier what are some of the immediate tactics we can employ to counter the opposing force we face now? Counter the message with an aggressive pro 2A for EVERYBODY marketing campaign (the NRA has this but doesn't seem to be winning)? Lawsuits? Protests? Again, I'm open to ideas.

  7. One tactic I've tried to employ given my limited resources and reach is a bit of unconventional warfare by trying to get more people involved in shooting sports by taking them to the range and sharing some education on the sport and community. The analogy that comes to mind for me is the NJ 2A community is a series of small, loosely organized pockets of resistance facing a very large and powerful force coming at us with a full frontal assault while at the same time waging a psychological campaign of making gun owners out to be crazed fanatics.

  8. TBH, in a way that's kind of how I feel. Based on what I've read on this forum and the rhetoric from Murphy and the legislature I feel that we're essentially facing a legislative firing squad. If this goes through as is they're pulling the trigger (no pun intended). Aside from the courts I'm wondering if the better course of action is to keep this thing from getting to his desk until we have a more favorable 2A group in Trenton. That will only happen if Murphy sends this state into financial death spiral. By that point many 2A folks will eventually left for a free state or one more affordable. We have the courts but I haven't seen much progress there in overturning NJs already unconstitutional gun laws. What options do you see to 1) keep this from becoming law and 2) loosening some of the already crazy restrictions? I'm not being confrontational all, just genuinely curious of the options. Since joining the 2A community it's been one of the most welcoming communities I've ever been a part of. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Honestly, at this point I'd consider maintaining a status quo a win with regard to both the 2A and taxes. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. What would be the impact on all shooting ranges and FFLs in the state if this gets through? RTSP is running ads pushing sales of ARs, even lowering prices. If there's no grandfather clause then I assume anyone who doesn't comply can no longer go to NJ to train. Those ranges would lose a vast amount of money on sales, rentals and port fees. I know RTSP is planning on opening a second location in Union but I'm concerned this new legislation could put a stop to it if the can't find a way to make it profitable. Can these businesses continue to profit with such a severe reduction in their product line? I've only been in the shooting community just over 3 years and love the sporting aspect of it. I've invested quite a bit (though not nearly as much as some) in this activity. I'm trying to get as up to speed as I can but there's so much to learn, I still feel like a newb Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. You just made my year! I'm a member there and the drive to Randolph to shoot is an all day affair. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. I would love someone to open one in or near Union County. In fact there is an empty Pathmark/Foodtown grocery store in Garwood on South Ave. Every time I drive by I think it would be a perfect spot for a new range. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you all for the warm welcome! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. I've never heard of SCFGPA. I just looked it up and had no idea it was that close. I'm just starting to learn about these type of members only ranges throughout NJ. I grew up by Cherry Ridge but never had the chance to shoot there. I really want to get to an outdoor range with my rifle since RTSP only goes up to 25yds Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  15. That's my normal time too. I like to go during member only hours to avoid the wait. Lately though I've been able to get up during the week on days off. It's great because there's never a wait or a rush. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
