  1. My favorite sight on I-95 was "Welcome to Virginia". Maryland isn't exactly too welcoming to gun owners.
  2. The paddle release is actually quite nice. I can use my trigger finger just fine, but I find that using my support hand to do the job is the best. My support hand is going that way anyway, so why not just hit the mag release and grab the empty magazine in one motion? With that said, there is something to be said for consistency. I have no plans to buy a Glock because they point differently than every other pistol I own, so it wouldn't be a bad thing if each of my pistols had the same magazine release. I have no intention of ever selling my VP9 with the paddle, but if a good deal came along for one, I'd be tempted to buy the push button model.
  3. I'll pass on both. I'd rather be hungry than feel sick with a stomach full of grease. When I happen to have a craving for fried chicken, Publix is actually quite good, and they're everywhere in SC.
  4. Basically just carrying my M&P Shield 2.0 in 9mm. I might try to carry my P320 compact in the cooler weather, but those constant M&P 2.0 Compact deals on Brownells are mighty tempting... Glock 19 size but with a similar grip angle to every other gun I own!
  5. That would be my guess. I'll add that having your SBI number won't necessarily make the process of getting either your employee of a dealer card or your FID any quicker, but it pretty much guarantees that you'll be approved. I had my employee of firearms dealer card prior to getting my FID and it still took forever to get my FID. My residence and job were in the same town and I applied for the FID only a month or two after getting the dealer card.
  6. I hope that you and your friend are only doing this for exploratory purposes and not modifying all of your magazines at this point in time. It hasn't even been determined yet if an injunction will be issued...
  7. From my perspective, he’s simply being super conservative. It’s almost like he wants to keep people from needing his services.
  8. The beauty of a pump action shotgun is that it's legal almost everywhere. I could keep an AR with a bunch of mags in my trunk no problem these days, but I'd still consider a shotgun just in case I have to make an unexpected drive into enemy territory.
  9. By the way, who wouldn't want a shotgun in their trunk? I never got around to it when I was still in NJ, but I seriously considered keeping an 18-20" Mossberg 590A1 in my trunk. In fact, I might still do that at some point...just need to work out the best way to secure it.
  10. Not knocking Magpul (I have more gen 3 PMags than anything else) or Lancer, but USGI mags with Magpul anti-tilt followers are easily the best bang for the buck. They're pretty much unbeatable for SHTF/prepping purposes. I think I picked up a pack of 10 for $70 or $80 from PSA. Full disclosure, I have no idea if you can get NJ legal variants, so PMags would be my pick.
  11. I have US Law Shield. It isn't perfect, but I don't think any of them are. USLS is good because there's no caps on legal defense (criminal and civil) and since the lawyers are already on retainer, you don't have to go out and find a lawyer. Two issues though. 1 - If you get sued in civil court and lose, it isn't an insurance policy, so you're on your own. 2 - You don't really get to pick what lawyer you get, so you're hoping they have great ones on retainer (Nappen's firm is the NJ affiliate). I went with USLS because the price is right (and locked in for life), I have coverage in all 50 states, and I live in a state that limits the rights of shitbags or surviving family members of shitbags to sue me if my shooting is deemed legal. With that said, I may take out an actual insurance policy at some point just in case.
  12. A bunch of people should box a few up and anonymously send them to their senator's or representative's office (if they voted for the law). Track the package, and as soon as it's been delivered, anonymously call the cops and report that they are in illegal possession.
  13. Even cheaper for anyone who sent in their P320 and still has the discount code Sig sent with their returned gun. I used my code to snag a sweet new pair of Zulu binoculars they had on closeout as well as some mags (yes, it stacked). There's no way I could find a nicer pair of brand new binoculars for what I paid.
  14. It looks interesting and I appreciate the engineering that went into it, but would I buy one? Probably not. It's yet another manual of arms to learn and become effective with. For situations that require fast reactions, it would not be the optimal choice. With that said, it carries a boatload of rounds and looks nothing like a gun when it's folded up and carried in a pocket, so it might be ideal for certain scenarios. Of course, most of the scenarios that I can think of are either highly dangerous or possibly illegal, so nothing that I would like to get involved with.
  15. I have IWB holsters for all of my handguns so far, but the SC state police is still processing my permit (only sent in the application a few weeks ago and they have 90 days by law), so I haven't made good use of them yet. Once approved, my main carry will be my new M&P Shield 2.0 in 9mm with an extra mag. That thing virtually disappears under a t-shirt. I will likely carry my VP9 or P320 once in a while during the cooler months, or in my backpack while hiking as a backup. Of course, I should probably pick up something with a bit more punch as my hiking backup. A 4" .357 sounds like a winner, but I could get a conversion kit for the P320 in .357 Sig or .40 S&W. Decisions, decisions. Edit: Oh what am I thinking? I can buy a handgun at will now and my last NICS took less than 5 minutes (and won't need to do a NICS once I have my CWP). Screw the conversion kit!
