  1. I think the focus is all in the wrong place, trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist. There are other things that kill many more people and that's where effort should be focused. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm Heart disease: 614,348 Cancer: 591,699 Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 147,101 Accidents (unintentional injuries): 136,053 Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 133,103 Alzheimer's disease: 93,541 Diabetes: 76,488 Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,227 Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 48,146 Intentional self-harm (suicide): 42,773 Firearms isn't even in the top 10. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/injury.htm All firearm deaths Number of deaths: 33,599 Deaths per 100,000 population: 10.5 Almost 20 times as many deaths occur from heart disease. The flu and pneumonia kill more people. As we know that 34k number includes suicides and good guys shooting bad guys. We've seen the breakdown of the numbers ... 25% of all gun crime happens in just 4 cities, etc. ... and we didn't even touch on the harm that tobacco and alcohol inflict. America will never understand that gun control is a myth until they begin to understand these numbers, and it's too much of an emotional issue. The Pro 2A movement I think would be better served by focusing on publicizing and educating on the real scale of the "gun control problem".
  2. Right after college, I became good friends with my best friend's great uncle, we called him "Uncle Matty". He worked as the treasurer for the stage hands union at the meadowlands (IATSE), and he always needed computer help from me. As a side benefit, whenever they needed extra help I got to go and work the concerts. We unloaded the trucks and setup the stage, hung out wherever we wanted to during the show (including back stage), then tore it all down and loaded the trucks after the show. So over the years I have worked: ZZ Top Van Halen (I setup Eddie's amp rig, and Sammy was hanging out with us very laid back) Bruce (what a paranoid douche) Billy Joel Paul McCartney Elton John Gloria Estefan
  3. Did you ever see those cans of powdered Country Time lemonade? Not a drop of real lemon anywhere to be found ...
  4. What Old Bridge questions do you have?
  5. My parents in Clinton Twp regularly have one in their back yard. Bears have also been spotted in the last couple of years here in Lawrence.
  6. Why not join Old Bridge? Probably closer for you then Cherry Ridge, and there are no "guest passes".
  7. I personally know Rick Agin of Agin Signs in South Brunswick, he's done great work. http://www.aginsigns.com/ Also know Lew Pinnella Signs in Somerset.
  8. So the question and interpretive statement were worded in such a way as to conceal the true nature of the measure? Made it sound like a good thing: "yeah we can deny bail to someone really dangerous!" when in reality it meant "well in all but the most severe cases we're just going to let everyone walk free".
  9. I am just getting into this myself and shot my first 3-gun match in Old Bridge on April 23. There are a few ways you can go here: Do you already have one? If you do it's probably best to just start with that. If you don't, you may want to consider something relatively inexpensive. Of course you can spend more now and get several competition level upgrades but then a year or more later decide that you wished you had something else. At first, until you get some good experience, your equipment won't be what's holding you back.
  10. FWIW, SA has released a new video on their Facebook page related to this issue, it may matter to some folks ...
  11. Over the last year I have purchased a few times at Cheyenne and have been happy with the service.
  12. Old Bridge allows you to use your own steel.
  13. If you have a FID can't you leave an unloaded long gun in your car? Does the range rent lockers? TTC does.
  14. I don't believe any of that applies to the OP.
  15. 1. What documentation does FL require for a person-to-person transfer? 2. Did Golani ever have a Florida DL (residence)? If the documentation was filed on a date within a range that he had a Florida DL, then he acquired the firearms while he was a FL resident, before coming to NJ. If there is no documentation and he had a Florida DL, then ... hopefully you get the idea. If he never had Florida residence/DL, well then SOL ... Makes sense?
