  1. Squabblers: simmer down now! Steve & Jack: thanks for giving Ira a nudge. OP: glad you got your gun back. Enjoy it!
  2. I think some of you folks have really hijacked this thread and taken it down the path of a personal squabble. If you want to debate the Gov's actions, there's another place for that. I actually don't like just throwing threads into the 1A lounge, because it is not fair to the original poster (because it's viewed less there). That said, @Sniper, @JackDaWack, and @Greenday - if you want to debate essential vs. non-essential, the current closures, etc., open up a PM, or move your personal debate over to the chat feature... and then knock yourselves out! Thank you!
  3. I'm quoting this because this thread had jetted off into another direction, but if you're commenting on the ORIGINAL topic, I think this comment above really summed it up. This was NOT an NRA/ANJRPC "lawsuit". They filed an amicus brief only - an entirely different, often narrowly focused, and very low-cost proposition (I mention cost because it's not something that sucks up a lot of member donations). And as Siderman pointed out, they do this for OTHER groups, too, around the country - most often non-LEO groups. Whatever you think of the NRA - good, bad, or indifferent - facts matter... and a lawsuit is wholly different than an amicus brief and doesn't necessarily reflect the totality of the filer's position.
  4. For anyone starting (or replenishing) a well-stocked home pantry, the Shop-Rite Can-Can sale is on right now and continues through this Saturday, Jan 9th. As per usual,, they have some decent prices on pantry staples like canned tomatoes, tuna, soups & broths, etc. The can-can sale is a good option price-wise for filling any gaps in your pantry, particularly if you're not a member of Costco or another discount club. Start here to find your local Shop-Rite store - https://shop.shoprite.com/globaldata/banner-pages/store-locator - from there you can view that store's weekly flyer with sale details. Happy prepping!
  5. If you are a hunter, I hope you're aware of Hunters Helping the Hungry (HHH). It's a NJ-based 501c3 non-profit that facilitates the donation by NJ hunters of venison to NJ food banks (Norwescap in NW NJ and others) by utilizing a network of participating butchers. HHH does great work! Last year alone, they contributed 25,307 pounds of venison (that's 101,228 servings)! This year, they got grant money enabling them to waive the hunters' processing fees for some larger deer. So, in this incredibly tough year, where so many people have lost business or employment income due to COVID-19 closures and restrictions, this grant money provides a little extra incentive for hunters to participate in this worthy program. Here's an article with details: http://www.eregulations.com/newjersey/hunting/hunters-helping-hungry-needs-help/ And here's the link to Hunters for the Hungry (btw, they also take Paypal donations directly through their website which is used to defray the costs for participating hunters): http://www.huntershelpingthehungry.org/ And if you're a hunter residing in another state, I urge you to do your own research - apparently, these hunter donation programs are pretty common throughout the U.S.
  6. Thanks for resurrecting this thread! It's perfect timing. Personally, whether you contribute money, food or volunteer hours, I think donations to the Community Food Bank of NJ are always a good idea! I've know about the organization for a number of years... and have been impressed with how they manage quite a gargantuan logistics challenge while making it look rather seamless. But this year, in particular, with the hardships people are experiencing due to OOVID-19 business closures & reductions/lost jobs, etc. - it's a particularly great time to help out! Due to this reminder, I noodled around the Internet a little - and I found out that Hunters Helping the Hungry (a NJ non-profit) have a special grant this year making it even easier for hunters to donate venison. So, I'll go make that post now over in the hunting forum, and then come back and add the link here! Edit: and here's a link to the other thread I started:
  7. I kept thinking: who among them would dare be brash enou... Never mind.
  8. Why don't you all just simmer down? It's Friday night... the weekend is stretched out in front of us. If the thread is getting your blood pressure up... back away from the keyboard... go fix the beverage of your choice... and take a little breather, folks! [now, imagine the above said in soothing, therapeutic tones... like a Mother Hen clucking around her chicks, ] Seriously, relax!
  9. I'll take it - assuming you don't mind an exchange sometime after Christmas?
  10. Damn, Krdshrk! You're fast on the draw! And welcome, Mercedes167!
  11. I think my area (northern Hunterdon County) is likely going to get the foot+ of snowfall that was predicted. There's already about 6-7 that has fallen... it's been going at a fast clip since it started at 3, so it's dropping roughly an inch per hour... and this storm is supposed to truck on until about 6 a.m. It's definitely Snowmaggedon here!
  12. And I just phoned the neighbor kid to make sure he's available for snow shoveling tomorrow. He purred like a kitten. We all have our own tried and true approaches apparently!
