  1. I have one of those and I must chime in that mine is also solid. Once it is locked in the open, unfolded position, it is as if it were one solid piece. You wouldn't even know that it comes apart, so tightly does it lock.
  2. I don't know, the person I'm talking about tried doing the same thing with the Glock magazines, but couldn't get it down far enough to accept an 11th round no matter how hard he pushed. But it was no problem with the Magpul...
  3. I know someone who loaded up a 10-round Magpul 9mm Glock 19-compatible magazine, then later decided he wasn't going to shoot it after all, so he unloaded the rounds. When he was done, he realized there were 11 rounds in his hand, not 10. He then reloaded the rounds into the 10-round magazine and noticed that all 11 fit in there. And the one on the top was not any less firmly in there than the 10th one when there were 10. I was wondering if anyone else knows anyone who has noticed this. Are 10-round Magpul magazines really 11-round magazines? I am not saying this happened in NJ. It could have been in another state....
  4. But at least the shipping went well without a hitch. That is great. That means that the advice I was given, "just send it and don't tell them what's in it," is workable. Don't ask don't tell. Technically they don't allow guns to ship from individuals, but if they don't know what's in the box then they can't do anything. I suppose there's always the danger that an eagle-eyed employee might notice it's going to a place called Ruger, and that Ruger is a gun maker, and so it must be a gun.... That statement of "they don't tell us what it is" is indeed very strange. It suggests that maybe the driver knew there was something in there, and he was just going to keep his eyes and mouth shut ... ???
  5. If you don't mind, please keep us updated and let us know how that all works out. Thanks
  6. And are you planning on having UPS come to your place and pick it up directly from you, or are you planning to go to an FFL and have them ship it for you?
  7. The UPS policy just went into effect this last August, and the FedEx one went into effect some time last year. https://thefirearmfirm.com/shipping-firearms-not-on-ups-your-not/ https://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2022/01/shipping-guns-via-fedex-now-limited-to-ffls-govt-agencies/#:~:text=IMPORTANT%3A FedEx policies now prohibit,into effect in Q3 2021.
  8. These are apparently brand new rules that UPS and FedEx just implemented (see the links above). No firearms shipped by individuals any more. I don't think it would matter who creates the label.
  9. The "dealer locator" on the Smith & Wesson website used to list dealers which have S&W certified armorers on site. I'm pretty sure I remember that until recently they listed Bullet Hole in Belleville and G3 Unlimited as having S&W armorers. Those two places are not listed as having gunsmiths now, but under Mike's Gun Shop it does say "Gunsmith on Site".
  10. Thanks for that. So do you take care of the boxing and packing of the gun too? All I would have to do is bring you the naked gun?
  11. No, they did not send me a label. I'm talking about just sending my gun to, say, a specialist gunsmith in another state. So I would have to create the label and pay for the shipping.
  12. From what I understand, new policies at FedEx and UPS prohibit an individual, non-FFL from shipping a firearm. So if I need to ship a gun to a company for repair, how can I do it? Will a gun store or a range where I'm a member ship the item for me? Has anyone shipped their gun in this way? Do they charge for this service? Gun store websites usually list all the services they provide, but I've never seen one that says "You can drop your gun off here for shipment." Also, would they allow the gun to be shipped back to them and let me pick it up there, like if I am not secure about the package receiving situation at home? https://www.ups.com/us/en/support/shipping-support/shipping-special-care-regulated-items/prohibited-items/firearms.page https://www.fedex.com/en-us/shipping/how-to-ship-firearms.html
  13. It would make sense to exempt anyone with a permit to purchase a handgun from NICS checks, since the permit to purchase background check is way more rigorous than NICS, and very recent if the permit is still valid.
  14. But then that is followed by 4(g) which states: g.All weapons being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only such deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances. In other words, whether you are transporting under (1) - member of a club - or (3) - regular person going to the range - you are subject to the same rules regarding "reasonable deviations" and how to package your firearm for transportation. Then, the attorney general's letter clarifies what "reasonable deviation" means, and it covers both types of people transporting, members of clubs and non-members. There is nothing in there about how you get to deviate more if you're the member of a pistol club (https://www.state.nj.us/oag/dcj/agguide/transporting-firearms_guide.pdf). So in practical terms, unless I'm missing something, I'm not seeing how transporting under f(1) gives you more privileges than under f(3).
  15. Question: I understand that if you don't use a permit to purchase a handgun within 90 days of issuance, you are automatically granted an extension for another 90 days. So you don't have to ask or request it or anything? Is it just automatically granted to anyone who hasn't used all their permits? And secondly, when the permits are extended, do you get an email from the FARS/NJ Portal system saying that they have been extended?
