  1. Interesting thread. For short outages, has anyone looked at battery storage units like the Goal Zero Yeti or Ego Power station? Where I live, we're usually just out for hours, not days. I'd just want to run the fridge, internet and some lights. My sump and garage door openers have battery backups.
  2. If someone forcibly breaks into your home, you're on pretty firm ground.If your drunk neighbor comes home late from bar hopping and walks through your unlocked front door and you take him out...things could go either way. I think the McClosky couple in St. Louis is an interesting one. I think they were entirely within their rights to "brandish" firearms as a violent mob swirled around their property. (The wife needs some gun safety training, I'll point out.) If the mob starts destroying their property, I think they're within their right to pick off a few. But already the lib prosecutor is threatening to prosecute them for just showing weapons. Know this - if some lib prosecutor wants to get in the papers, you'll be put through the gauntlet regardless of what the law actually says.
  3. In this case, it's the only orange notice the dipshitz in the Dept. of Health had in their desks to try to scare people. It's supposed to be used to hold goods or livestock that may be altered, counterfeit or dangerous before they move further in the supply chain. It's bogus in this case. Funny how the gym's sewage line got blocked. Don't suppose any of the storm troopers had to use the restroom and flushed some Quickset down there? "You've got a nice gym here. Be a shame if anything happened to it." I remember when the government fought the mob. Now it is the mob. And how about the Big Brother camera they put up to photograph all the supporters and get their license plates?
  4. Dipshit Murphy orders masks for the public in grocery stores. 99.8% of NJ's problem is north of 195. Most southern counties have single digit deaths. I'll wear a mask and proudly write "FU Murphy!" on it.
  5. I never had much luck with the chambered cartridge-type laser sights. Could never get consistent results. I switched to a muzzle-end bore sight (see below) and have had good results. I generally use that to sight-in, following the instructions closely, and then go to the 100 yard range directly. The only problem I've had with the SiteLite is that it isn't ideal for short barreled pistols or rifles with long muzzle devices. https://www.amazon.com/SiteLite-SL-100-Mag-Laser-Boresighter/dp/B001NZLJA6/ref=sr_1_6?crid=1YNWJYXUG3X1X&dchild=1&keywords=laser+bore+sight&qid=1585134682&s=sporting-goods&sprefix=laser+bore+%2Csporting%2C158&sr=1-6
  6. I'm beginning to think South Jersey needs to separate from North Jersey. Newark, Paterson, Teaneck, Jersey City, Hoboken are hot beds. Stay safe out there!
  7. True enough. And what a difference a year makes: Wife in 2019: "Why do you have so much ammo?" Wife in 2020: "Do we have enough ammo?"
  8. In all of those cases were, there were other, serious AF charges precipitating the arrest (drug crime, stolen car, aggravated assault, carrying on plane). The assault weapon charges were added on. I doubt there's any case where some average Joe was charged with a AWB crime just minding his own business at the range. I've yet to see anyone anywhere checking that your stock is pinned, your mags are blocked and that your MD is pinned. I certainly wouldn't violate the law - too much risk. I will point out that the MA1 is a NJ-compliant rifle with a flash hider (which is allowed because the rifle doesn't have a pistol grip). I have interest in the OP's question for a similar reason - I need a new muzzle device and wanted to try out a few before pinning and welding one on permanently. The only way I can think to do that is (1) go out of state or (2) remove an evil feature. I can't permanently affix the magazine, so I'm thinking if I use a non-pistol grip stock, the unpinned device would be OK. Was thinking about this Hera CQR stock (assuming the grip is not considered a pistol grip).
  9. Interesting. With that stock can you have an unpinned Muzzle device in NJ? i.e. swap one evil feature for another?
  10. Anyone know if Winters does compliance work? I left a few messages, but no reply. I have an AR that needs a muzzle brake pinned and welded. Last time I had a FFL do it, it came lose so I want to try a real smith this time.
  11. The original modern polycarbonate top hand guard is on the top right. The mil-spec ventilated hand guard is on the top left. The rifle currently has an aluminum M14.ca SHG-M picatinny rail on it so that the scout scope can be mounted.
  12. I was seriously thinking about selling this one. It's such a tank - like the weight of 3 ARs, but once I got it out, I couldn't go through with it. Will try to get to the range with it again this week.
  13. Was there last week and the range fields were mostly dry. Just a little muddy at the entrances. It’s trap season now so I’m not likely to go back for a while. Glad conditions have improved.
  14. And what if an already gun owner just happens to get laid off? Following your logic, they should red-flag every person recently laid-off and confiscate their guns? Is that you Governor Murphy?
  15. It's tough when you have no history. Took me a while to get going there. Selling a commodity gun like a Glock or newer Browning seems easier than rarer or more unusual guns. Took me months to sell my Sako and I ended up practically giving it away. Is it auction or a fixed price? Hopefully you set a reserve to protect yourself. I'd also recommend allowing buyers to make an offer so you can gauge the market for your gun. If it's super collectable, you might want to try one of the auction houses that specialize in that sort of thing.
  16. Interesting that you can order them for NJ without the binary trigger. Any NJ FFLs willing to accept one? Here's the FAQ on these. Interesting that factory ammo can maintain the degree of accuracy reported if they yaw and tumble just 15 feet past the muzzle. http://www.reformationfirearms.com/FAQ.html
  17. That's pretty cool. So...the next question will be - can it be suppressed without a tax stamp? I believe the Maxim 50 muzzleloader is suppressed and reportedly legal in all 50 states without a stamp because, technically, it's not a firearm.
  18. Generally, if it's priced right anything will sell. I've had my best luck with GunBroker auctions and found that older, out-of-production stuff does much better than current production. For example, I just sold a 25 year old S&W 22 for more than twice what I bought it for new and on the other hand, sold a like-new Sako rifle for half what I paid for it last year.
  19. Swizz - does the spring-loaded release move freely and completely out of the locking notch on the buffer tube or is it restricted? I have one where the stock isn't pinned, but the release is so that it cannot be moved.
  20. Assuming this was sold as a NJ-compliant model (from the factory and not done by a gunsmith/ffl) can you tell us who the manufacturer is? Someone probably has been down that road and could help. I only have one rifle that was sold with a NJ-compliant SKU from the factory from S&W and it was pinned in the fully extended position between the stock and the adjustment "rail" on the buffer tube. One easy-to-remove pin, on just one side (which I never touched, I swear). Aftermarket pinning could be anywhere. I have one that has the release latch pinned. There should be a special place in hell for anyone who epoxies a stock in place.
  21. I see your point, but the libs know a mag capacity restriction does nothing to save lives. They might actually prefer this gets national/SCOTUS attention coming into the 2020 election. And who knows what SCOTUS would do with wobbly kneed Roberts on the bench. It could be win-win for the Dems. If the CA ban is upheld, the libs could push for a nationwide ban. If the ban is tossed, they have another red-meat issue for their rabid base.
  22. That is sick. Nice job! I don't think it’s legal for those of us stuck in NJ to even look at something like that. (Deleting browser history...)
  23. Blame the Greenies on the left, who get to control you because they know better than you... “EPA regulations incentivize the use of [stop/start] technology because it has on-road fuel economy and greenhouse-gas benefits not fully captured on EPA’s fuel-economy tests,” a Ford spokesman said in an email. “In order to qualify for the incentives, [it] must be the predominant operating mode for the vehicle, such that the driver cannot permanently disable it.” That has not stopped some people from turning to the internet for ways to shut it off for good. In one example on YouTube, a young man plugs a trailer-light tester into the hitch receiver of a 2018 Ford F-150 to show viewers how to permanently latch an otherwise nonlatching stop/start system. In that case, the system won’t engage because the truck thinks it’s pulling a load. Incidentally, there are other scenarios in which the engine will not shut off, even when stop/start is engaged, such as if the steering wheel is being turned, the battery voltage is too low, or the air conditioning needs to keep running to maintain a comfortable cabin because of hot outside temperatures. Stop/start systems are otherwise accompanied by beefier batteries and starter motors to support the greater demands of the engine frequently cycling on and off.
