  1. I was a member there before I left NJ. Yes the weekends can be busy with competitions but otherwise on "off hours" it's pretty much empty and I found it to be a great place to shoot.

    New to NJ

    Welcome! ... and my condolences ...
  3. Thanks for the suggestions so far, yeah I'm in Charleston (moved here from NJ last summer).
  4. While pulling into my garage one night I got a little too close to the side and scuffed the body over the wheel well against the garage door exterior frame. Seems to have just transferred some white paint to the black body, the surface doesn't appear damaged. Is there some product I can get at Pep Boys or Auto Zone that will help remove that paint transfer? How do I handle this? I'm not a "car guy".
  5. We have a similar discussion with our kid’s friends but use tips as the example. Funny how none of them want to share their tips with coworkers that don’t work the same amount...
  6. Yep it’s the brain washing that’s been going on under our noses for decades in the education system.
  7. Don't you need "Bernie" and "Coexist" stickers for those?
  8. PSE&G never gives an ETA, regardless of how urgent or critical the situation is ...
  9. Yup, made the escape last summer.
  10. Wonder how well 10 round mags would have worked in this situation ... https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2019/01/john-boch/houston-defender-in-home-invasion-shootout-kills-three-of-five-attackers/
  11. I had issues getting MySQL and then phpmyadmin running. Apparently it installs with --initialize-insecure so there is no root password, which I need to assign. Nothing I try to set the password works. https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/data-directory-initialization-mysqld.html "2018-12-14T15:26:43.227565Z 1 [Warning] root@localhost is created with an empty password ! Please consider switching off the --initialize-insecure option." I gave up trying to deal with the root user and just created a new user that had full privileges. I could not find one straight-forward piece of documentation I could follow step by step on how to just install and be up and running right out of the box.
  12. I'm looking for a new job and being predominantly a Microsoft/.NET guy I setup an Ubuntu 18.10 vm few weeks ago so I could familiarize myself with the LAMP world. What a pain in the ass to get everything working correctly "out of the box".
  13. Excellent video. I just made my wife and daughters watch this. I tell them all the time they need to be more aware of what's going on around them and this really opened their eyes!

    AR sling

    I have the Blue Force Gear Vickers sling. Works well for me during 3-gun/multi-gun matches. This is the VCAS sling.
  15. I know what you mean. Been in SC now 5 months and it still seems surreal. Since we live downtown, next year I would like to try to find some rural acreage to be the family "farm", some space for shooting, hunting, fishing, whatever.
  16. Yup, PSA all over the TV ads here. Not sure if it's also in the northeast/NJ, but on Comcast here we have the Outdoor Channel and the Sportsman Channel with lots of firearms related content that included ads for all kinds of firearms.
  17. FWIW I would rather have the guy in the tower being a dick and watching everyone like a hawk, rather than not really paying attention and perhaps missing something dangerous ... but yes they can be a bit annoying.
  18. A 17 round magazine is a standard capacity magazine for a Glock 17 and a S&W M&P 9 mm. A semi-auto AR-15 is in no way more of a dangerous "assault rifle" as my M1A or any bolt action or lever action rifle with a magazine.
  19. I strongly believe the 2A community does itself a great disservice by continuing to use the terms "large capacity" and "assault rifle". This only reinforces these words with the ignorant public and plays into the hands of the opposition.
  20. We have an antique chair that needs to be re-caned and before we moved my wife had gotten some estimates ... yeah it's going to be in the $200 range per chair. Seems to be a hard to find/forgotten skill. Let me see if I can find who we got estimates from.
  21. It's a "permit to purchase", not to posses. Once you purchased (or allowed to expire), it's of no value.
  22. No. A Firearms Purchaser ID is not required for possession. https://www.njsp.org/firearms/pdf/062408_title13ch54.pdf

    Six weeks

    It took 6 weeks for my SC CWP as well. Been carrying my Glock 26 in an Alien Gear Cloak Tuck 3 IWB holster and it has been working out really well. Very comfortable. Wore it on a 5 hour drive too. I also have an M&P 9mm but haven't carried that yet.
