  1. Some of the places that install / service residential and commercial overhead doors also do gates.
  2. A gun is like a machine. Gotta clean it for preventative maintenance purposes. If the burnt powder residue is allowed to build up, it can make the moving parts stop moving like they should and depending on the type of ammo it can cause corrosion to the internal parts of the firearm.
  3. The range/sportsmen club where I have a membership sends out the monthly e-newsletter from the NJ State Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs. There is a section in there that details some of the enforcement work done by conservation officers during the previous month to enforce hunting and fishing regulations, commercial fishing laws, dumping laws and other public land use violations all over the state. Its amazing sometimes the surveillance and investigation efforts they put in to enforcing these rules. While I'm sure we've all seen and heard of all sorts of hunting and fishing violations and it goes without saying that they can't be everywhere all the time, they don't get nearly enough credit for what they do accomplish.
  4. I just ordered some Accurate 2460. It had a limit of 2. Some powders have a small note next to the drop down where you select quantity while others don't have the note.
  5. Ammo.com and bulkammo.com both currently (on the day of this posting) have a variety of rifle and handgun ammo calibers in stock in both bulk cases (100's or 1,000's) and individual boxes of 20 or 50. I have purchased from them in the past, though Target Sports is my #1 choice. Both these sites have the option to over-box your ammo shipment so its just a plain brown box. Beware: These two sites have prices that reflect the current demand. Depending on what you are looking for, you may see what you want at a price you are going to walk away from. I'm not recommending them based on current price, I'm listing them because of variety of ammo, ammo availability, shipping reliability and satisfaction with past purchases. www.ammo.com www.bulkammo.com
  6. Whether you are a fan of the McRib or not, here is an interesting video on the history of who developed it, why and how McDonalds chose to market it the way they do, why they seem to randomly make it available in different places at different times, and probably an answer to one of the more controversial questions, what is it made of. I personally don't like the sandwich but as a business decision, it is a nice move.
  7. Some agencies have a dedicated officer(s) who handle these so if you know who it is for your department, you can ask to talk to them and maybe they can tell you something. Make sure your references check their junk or spam mail for the email. I heard sometimes the emails get sent to junk mail but you should have heard if a reference never responded. Most likely they will say its due to overwhelming number of applicants to process. While the law says they are to get yours processed within 30 days, be polite when pointing out the delay. I've waited 5 months before. They told me it was because I marked down that I had lived in another state within the last 10 years so they had to reach out to them for police and mental health records which slowed the process. Then they said it was because I live in a rural area covered by State Police and all rural application from around the state are all processed at NJSP headquarters in Trenton, not local NJSP barracks, so there is a backlog there. At that point I contacted my Assemblymen who represent my area and pointed out the 30 day law. It seemed that helped to get things rolling again.
  8. Transportation is covered in 2C:39-6 and that (as well as the PDF) says firearms, meaning it would apply to both handguns and long guns. If you say the laws are different for transporting long guns and handguns could you show me where? I'm not trying to be an ass, I'd like to know because the way these laws are written can be like trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle wearing a blind fold.
  9. I read through this discussion the other day since the title grabbed my attention and I had some questions about the specific laws and what they did or did not say that would allow one to carry a "truck gun" since I had been under the impression that this was not legal to do. I took some time to try to look up the laws before posting questions/comments. Here is what I found. N.J.S. 2C:39-5 subsection C says: Rifles and Shotguns. (1) Any person who knowingly has in his possession any rifle of shotgun without having first obtained a firearms purchaser identification card in accordance with NJS 2C:58-3 is guilty of crime of third degree. To avoid being guilty, you get the FID before you are in possession of the rifle or shotgun. Simple enough there. 2C:39-6 paragraph G explains what you said about how the firearm is to be stored; unloaded, in a box, etc... But NJS 2C:39-6 subsection f, paragraphs 3 (sub-paragraphs a, b and c) specifically lists where you can legal travel with the firearms, and each sub-paragraph says "directly to or from" the places listed which are places like shooting range, hunting, gunsmith, gun store, gun show etc... I also found a letter from the Attorney General's Office (see attached PDF) addressed to all Prosecutors, Sheriff's, Police Chiefs and LEO Chief Executives about this very set of laws. It details how these very paragraphs are to be enforced and what information a LEO is to try to obtain when he/she finds a firearm in a vehicle during a vehicle stop. That letter says the person transporting the firearm is to be going directly to/from one of the specified places listed, with only reasonably necessary stops or deviations in route. It also describes the reason these paragraphs were written the way they were. It says in part that it is designed to prevent us from using 2C:39-6 paragraph G as a de facto carry permit for our vehicles. Having looked into it, I don't think have any questions now so my comment would be, I don't think it is legal to have a truck gun in NJ based on the states current infringements to the 2nd amendment.

  10. The request status on the left is your request to have a mail-in ballot sent to you. This year the state initiated this request for everyone because Murphy said so. The right side is their status in processing it. That's the side that should change to a confirmation that your vote was counted.
  11. The States need to get "aligned" under the constitution. It addresses the extend to which each state can exercise its own right as a state and where that authority ends. Besides the "shall not be infringed" statement in the 2nd amendment, section 1 of the 14th amendment says: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. One could make a very valid argument that every law that has anything to do with firearms in NJ is unconstitutional.
  12. He said it was a 6 year old female. I don't know for sure, but my experience leads me to believe this is a female that has been bred multiple times and is being "retired" to be replaced with a younger dog.
  13. I've seen evidence of this down here in rural Salem County. Salem City is a small economically depressed town full of closed factories and section 8 housing. Camden has been trying to revitalize. In 2012, a relative of mine who worked at the housing authority for Salem City told me that Camden was paying Salem to provide 468 Section 8 housing units for Camden residents. This allowed Camden to start deporting low income people to Salem. Salem naturally began seeing a huge increase in crimes related to drugs and gang activity as rival factions arrived and began fighting over the new territory. There has been at least 1 murder in Salem every month this year and the population is less than 5,000. I grew up there when the factories were open and people who lived there were from there and for 18 years, I don't remember there being a shooting.
  14. I have a Mossberg Maverick 88 with a rifled barrel. It did not have holes drilled in the top of the receiver so I got a TacStar Side Saddle with Picatinny rail. From there, you'll have a lot of options for optics.
