  1. I'm aware of what needs to be compliant in this state- NEW JERSEY. The only way I was able to get a Bravo Company AR was to go through a private FFL ( mas stores wouldn't go near it ) since BCM won't even ship anything to NJ at all. Somehow the FFL dealer I dealt with got it just right. What I meant about the Delaware thing was I would be able to purchase a non-complaint NJ rifle and then have the professional work done to make it compliant. I've seen some really crappy jobs when a company tries to pin a stock when they really don't know how. Anyway that WWSD does look interesting. I wonder how over time the metal and polymer rubbing together would wear? Unlike a hand gun, the metal slide usually sits on metal rails or something. I would have loved them to touch the display they had sitting on the table but it was probably a cardboard cut out! Did he say 6lbs! Wow, I could shoot that all day and wouldn't even feel it. I really want to see someone pull that charging handle and hear it. I assume it's gas that throws the bolt back into the polymer. Wowzers, can't wait to see that piece. I don't like the old school stock, but the tradition is there.
  2. Why this always happens this time of year, have no idea. I currently have everything in my signature and I'm still looking for something revolutionary in an AR-15 being NJ compliant. To me, the AR-15 is almost a perfect weapon, with quick take downs, cleanings, strong steel where it needs to be and it just works if it is made properly. I do want to end up with 3 total. I guess 2 of them isn't good enough for my small brain. I want one FULL MADE. Do not have the time or eyesight to build one myself. Those days are over. I can be your grandparent if the divide is big enough. I love anything that comes from BCM. I've had, sold, bought and had more. In the end I settled keeping the beautiful Bronze Reece 556 NATO. And also settled on a Rebel Arms MOD3. They may have been sold off or went out of business but their AR I beat the crap out of and that stays true to god. I will never let these two go, so will be looking for an AR-15 with DE. compliance or New Jersey. My dad lives in DE. I live in NJ. Is he allowed to gift me a DE. complaint rifle or that's not happening when Murphy slips in some law while we are looking at the COVID news. SLICK. So the bottom line, preferably a great quality LITE AR-15, minimilistic besides a small scope and maybe some legs on it. Nothing heavy. Older I get, the lighter I want. I will check every recommendation on the responses, so if you are sending me into the Devils pit please let me know. Something new, cool, and that works! Thanks fellas. Old man Mike here.
  3. Damn, I thought at least it would have went to family instead of another company doing everything over. Their 'new' website doesn't even offer information about lanes, shooting times, the details.
  4. Anyone know what happened to Garden State shooting center? I go to their website and this WESHOOT site comes up. Do they have a range anymore? Sales? Any news would be great.
  5. Anyone ever use Google Earth and come across places that look like a range but no range is advertised to be there? Usually a very private one. My father who lived in North Jersey found one way up in the hills of Newton township. I'm sure some people with big money and have lots of land can make their own ranges.
  6. The club sounds very interesting. My current membership will run out this winter and that's why I'm possibly looking to check out another place with more resources. My current club is 29.6 miles away and takes 40 minutes to get there. Central Jersey is 23.9 miles away and looks like it will take me 30 minutes away. So that's pretty cool, it's actually closer. Are potential members allowed to visit the site and walk around to check it out or have to be with another member? If have to be with another member, does that take away something from that member? Like points or a guest pass? And Mr. Winter is coming, do they close the outdoor ranges or keep them open all year? I'll re-read that PDF file. Downloaded it the other day. If you were to take me into the area, would we be able to roam around or do you have to go right to a certain range? Thanks for the info guys.
  7. Been reading all the replies and someone suggested a 22LR, which might be a good choice. Still in love with that Wilson Combat EDC but can't see myself putting out $2895 and then waiting for it to be built. Now, possibly on the hunt for a really nice 22LR.
  8. I was all over their website. Most of it talks about the financials and less about the range itself. The initial $700-$800 fee then you have the annual $350 fee on top of that. Literally over $1000 for the first sign up I believe. BUT they offer a lot of land, a lot of different range sizes and indoor as well. Have you ever went there on a weekend and it was really crowded that you had to wait for a lane? Do they close the outdoor ranges in the winter? Anyway, thanks for replying and maybe we can figure something out for me to take a look first without dumping all that cash out. Thanks!
  9. I always use Garden State as my indoor range. Really nice guys there, have a good selection for their size and they have a lower shelf in your lane! Some lanes at other places just have a single shelf. I need more room for my targets, other hardware, ammo, etc. Anyway I have been looking at NJRGC and yea the damn huge fee is a real put off but they have keyfob 24/7 access, outdoor and indoor. Lots of space. Are there any NJRGC members here? Do they really allow you to use the range 24/7? Or just the indoor? I assume they allow AR-15 rifles, and do they limit those to ONLY the longest rages or you can shoot them at the 50 yard ones? Just trying to get a low down on specifics. Getting tired of shooting my AR's on short lanes all the time. Do they have metal targets setup for you so you don't need to walk out and setup your targets? Paying over $800 to join I'd figure they have whatever you want but after you join is when you start finding the limitations. What do you think?
  10. Is that X9 really worth the price? I was checking out the 365. Since I don't have a small one. I like the fact it has 10 rounds and the size. Plus the price is good.
  11. It's that time of year I treat myself. I usually get a handgun or rifle type firearm. My signature shows all that I have now. I've looked all around at all the new stuff and just can't find anything that peaks my interest. I would love to get a 9mm Wilson Combat but for $4000 I can't justify that on any measure. I'm sure there are guns out there just as good and reliable that cost $400 to $1000. Anyway, maybe someone can give me some recommendations for something that I can take to the range, shoot and just be happy with it. I've shot hundreds and hundreds of rounds through all my guns and I love shooting them all, except for the 1911. Not saying I don't like it, just a little bulky and heavy. I'm also a left handed person and would love to get something that has the capability for ambi. I think I went to Buds online and just went page after page just looking to see if anything visually would pop out. Help me spend my money!
  12. If you change your mind and want an regular AR, then I would always go for Bravo Company ( BCM ). I used the very good people JT Customs, Jack to get my Bravo rifle. Can't buy them at dealers since they do not ship to NJ at all. Jack was able to obtain a NJ legal version which I have been very happy with and will rely on that weapon with my life if I ever had to. It just always works and every part on that rifle is made to last.
  13. Yes, that is the bag I have. Right now it seems to be a perfect bag. Where can you find a bag with 20 magazine holders, room for 2 full size pistols, room for ammo, some tools, ear protection, eye protection, etc. Even though I feel it is the perfect bag, I still chase the dragon for a better one. It is an obsession.
  14. I have a small obsession with range bags. I have a few but all of them are not perfect. One is almost. It is the Osage River range bag. The larger of the two they make. That bag comes close to a perfect range bag. When I visit the range I carry my bullets in snap cap containers. Tops can't fall off. They are see thru kitchen type containers. They are very light and come in different sizes. Been doing it that way for a long time. Since all my ammunition at home is in all 50 CAL cans I just grab and fill my containers and stick them in my range bag. Seems to be very efficient. I can get setup and ready to shoot at the range in a couple of minutes. I also have one of those 556 autoloaders. Where you put all the bullets in a bin at the top, secure a magazine to it and pump away. Magazine fills up in a matter of seconds. I see lots of people looking at me and most come up and ask what the hell is that? I just tell them I don't want to spend time filling up magazines while in the range. Well worth it.
