Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am new here. wanted to introduce my self. I am from Mercer County area. I purchased my first pistol last year and now i have few. love going to the range. I have been to Recoil in monroe and RTSP in Union. I am trying to improve my target shooting so i can someday participate in beginner level comp's. :) 

Is there any outdoor range for pistols? which are open for non-members? if any one knows, please do let me know.

 

Thanks

Range-14 at Ft Dix.  They do non member day passes now.

Really? When did that start? Not that the annual membership is expensive or anything...

Welcome.  Honestly - if you've got the equipment for it - dive right into competition.  If you tell the people there that you're new to it, they will help teach you safely, and give you tips as well.  You'll learn by doing and you'll learn a lot.

Thank you for that... will get in to rifles too in coming months... 

does buying rifles/shotgun also require permit like Handguns require?

It requires a FID card, which is a "one-time" application - you get the card once, then you can buy as many rifles/shotguns/"long guns" as you want.

If you've been buying handgun ammunition in NJ then I'm guessing you already have an FID card.

Fake news.

Lol, there is a lot of that going around lately. 
 

Welcome aboard.

What was your first hand gun purchase? Mine was a Beretta, from there it’s been all a blur.

    • We get heritage pork here, it’s a bit darker and more marbled than the pork we used to buy in NJ.    The loins came out perfect, nice and moist, aMd very flavorful!  I think I like that rub I showed a few posts back better than anything else I’ve made or bought. Just the right amount of spice.  Like brisket, I let the loins rest, wrapped in foil and a towel, sitting in an empty cooler. They sat for about 2 hours. This is key for retaining moisture.    Brisket is at 170°, sitting at the stall. I’m not going to Texas crutch this one, I’m going to let it work through it all on its own. 
    • Has anyone any news on buying ammunition since the new package of laws were signed by Murphy? I use a lot from online purchases that used to require just the FID sent with an order. Are local dealers changing the routine yet?
    • Shooters Sporting Center Facebook posting: STARTING TUESDAY MORNING YOU CAN CALL THE STORE TO BOOK A CLASS. THIS 1 HOUR COURSE IS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! YOU MUST BE AN EXPERIENCED SHOOTER TO REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS! This is not a training course! $90 Plus Tax Non-Refundable Fee! You will not be refunded if you do not pass! Please come prepared with the following: •Firearm/s you wish to carry (Must be .380 or Larger) Semi-autos preferred- Revolvers will require a speed loader •100 Rounds of ammunition •At least 2 magazines •Drivers License and Firearm’s ID card EYES & EARS required as well, just me adding a reminder.
    • Just found this on GFH: This is not a beginner course! You will be required to demonstrate safety, familiarity, and accuracy. It is pass or fail. – No holster needed – All shooting from the ready position – 50 rounds per firearm – FBI Q target – 24 rounds at 7 yards – 14 rounds at 10 yards – 6 rounds at 15 yards – 6 rounds at 25 yards For a total of 50 rounds. Must hit at least 40 rounds out of 50 (80%)... Only 6 rounds at 25 yards makes this pretty easy for folks who have been shooting for many years...But as noted by another poster, there doesn't seem to be common standards across all ranges. Still, I will practice this (routine) with my 9MM PPQ. I have a 1/2 body type target from Wilson with a 7" circle etched on the body. Later I'll qual with my 45. My question I need help with, beside the actual shooting qual, are we also (required) to take some classroom training course? You know, the type that might discuss the use of deadly force under the law? I don't need to take this because I know the laws, just wondering if I (have) to take this and submit a certificate with the application?
    • There’s one in Airport Plaza on 36 in Hazlet. I think there’s one in Keansburg/Union Beach as well, on the Northbound (Westbound) side of 36, just past Laurel Ave.
