    Telco....now a member.

    Every year, I say I'm going to check out Telco, but I never seem to get around to it. I currently belong to Pine Belt and SJSC and occasionally shoot at Quinton and Cedar Creek. I'm purely a recreational shooter, so when the clubs are having big competitions, I like to have options to go somewhere else.

    I'll go out on a limb and guess: more rain than usual? I only say this because 2018 was the wettest year in NJ in over a hundred years and January was high on top of that. My back lawn has been underwater most of the fall and winter too.

    Yeah, I went back last Tuesday. For better or worse, the water had frozen from the previous cold snap, but that day was in the 50's, so each range had basically a floating glacier. Set up a steel spinner at 100 and first shot sent it sliding into the backstop. I've been a member for years, but don't recall it being this bad before either. With enough money, I"m sure it would be a solvable problem. Aside from increased dues, though, I'd be concerned about the county/state poking their noses into some construction of anything at the range. Who knows, they'd day there was lead in the catchment water and declare it an environmental hazard. Then we'd all be screwed. Maybe we just chalk it up to a wet winter and let nature take its course.
  4. I think FFL to FFL deals are fairly straightforward or having your FFL who is also a dealer get you the gun and make it compliant. There are some out-of-state dealers who simply won't ship a non-compliant gun to a restricted state. For example, Bud's policy: We will not ship firearms to a third party to be modified or changed in any way from manufactured specifications. The firearm you purchase must be compliant AS IS from the manufacturer before we will ship.

    Ha ha - yeah, I know - that Trijicon is a pig, for sure. The DDm4 with iron (polymer) sights was blissfully light when I got it. All that went out the window with the Trijicon. That being said, the AR is a range-toy, so I don't worry about the added weight. I do love the 1-8x optic, though. I have a Burris 536 fixed at 5x on my other and I was surprised how much another 3x helped at 100 yds and out.

    Brownells: Win a Barrel of Hornady 5.56

    I'm in and thankfully it's not green-tip. A barrel of 5.56 is definitely a party!

    I was there recently and every range was flooded from in front of the houses all the way to the targets, though the pads of the houses were mostly dry. With the wet winter, each range is like a bowl collecting water. If you wear some waterproof boots, you can persevere by walking along the berm. Where the target are, though, I was standing in 6-8" of freezing standing water. Not fun. With the 7/10/15 range closed, you can shoot pistols in the 25. They have some target stands set up for shorter distances.
  8. Well, something is certainly broken and it's likely a due to a multitude of factors, compounded by the hype in the media and the instant (and constant) news cycle. The problem is finding people to analyze the problem who don't otherwise have an axe to grind.
  9. When I purchased my first gun, a handgun, there was no internet. You went to a gun store and saw what they had in stock or you looked through a magazine and maybe wrote a letter asking for a catalogue. I got my hands on a Wilson Combat catalogue and drooled over their 1911's. All I could afford then was a Colt, but I did manage to outfit it with a few Wilson parts. I still have that catalogue. Fast forward 30 years (and as many guns), and I finally did get my Wilson. This one in 9mm instead of .45 ACP. It's a great gun. Slick, smooth and accurate. Honestly, as an aspirational gun out of my reach, it was more special than a gun I could finally approve years later. My gun was used by Wilson in their promotional literature/website for the new X-Tac.

    I'm a little late to the AR party. DDM4v7 in Mil-spec+ with the Trijicon 1-8x. Pretty much stock except for the Wilson Combat TTU-3G trigger and Raptor charging handle.

    Seriously, that thing is sick. I'd give it "Best in Show" for sure. Well done.
  12. I am thinning my collection and have decided to part with this beautiful Sako 85 Bavarian Carbine, chambered in .243 Win. Beautiful oil finished walnut with rosewood schnabel. 20" barrel, 1:10 twist. MPN JRSBC15. Iron sights, but will easily accept a scope into its dovetail mounts. Less than a year old with only 232 rounds down the pipe. 5-round aluminum magazine. Bolt is smooth as glass. Single stage trigger pull is adjustable from 2-4 lb and can also be "set" after the bolt is thrown, by pushing forward on the trigger. The hammer is then dropped with a very crisp 8 oz pull. I'm no marksman, but easily (and consistently) shot sub-MOA groups at 100 yards with a scope on the rifle. It's a tack-driver. It's as close to new as you can get and comes complete with all paperwork and box. I purchased it last year for $2,248, but it's a better rifle than I am a shooter and deserves a better home. Selling for $1799. Please contact me here if you have questions. Thanks! Dave Sako-85-Bavarian-Carbine-Specs.pdf

    Spotting Scope for my AR-15

    I have a pretty cheap Celestron 25-75x70 that does the job. I don't need Leica quality glass -- just enough to see the target. At full zoom (75x), the slightest movement makes the target dance as you're counting holes. It works better when the tripod is on the concrete floor rather than my range's wooden tabletops. Sells for about $89. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/546159-REG/Celestron_52238_C70_Mini_Mak_2_7_70mm.html
  14. I just purchased a new Daniel Defense DDM4v7 from Jack as a first time customer and have to share what a great buying experience it was. Jack was super-responsive to my request and got me the rifle at the best price around. The turnaround time was fast - about a week from the time I confirmed my order to delivery, and that included the compliance work. Jack went over the gun completely when I picked it up and took the time to answer any questions I had. I'd have to say he's more of a gun concierge than a dealer. Really first class service from start to finish. I will definitely be a repeat customer! Dave
