Although it's not a NJ establishment I believe West Side Rifle and Pistol Range is the last indoor gun range that exists in NYC of all places. I happen to know the guys and they are a great bunch of guys. I found out that they are also hurting like all other self owned businesses and someone mentioned they have a gofundme page currently. The fact that they are a 2A establishment and also the only one left in the NYC I figured i can let our forum members know about their page. They did not come to me about this but if I can help out a business/friend and spread the word I will do so and for a good bunch of guys. I understand that for some of us it's hard to donate but if you can that would be great. If you can also spread the word and post on your social media sites that would be great. I would do so but I don't have any accounts on FB, IG or other sites. If you do donate drop them a message that it was you heard about them via NJGF!
I have a membership at GSSC in Lakewood. The guys there are awesome and I love shooting there. But there are limits to an indoor range. I'm planning on joining Central Jersey Rifle & Pistol Club this month.
What's been your experience with the club and is it worth the $$?
I just wanted to take a moment and wish a very warm welcome, once again, to Shore Shot Pistol Range! @shore_shot
A very cool fairly recently remodeled range and a nice big store with plenty of firearms for you to try! One of the oldest in NJ with plenty for both new and more experienced shooters. I recall coming here after Rays closed up.
Also, please visit the vendor page here
As a gun owner in New Jersey I understand the mess of laws in the state. Now that I own milsurps I'm curious is it lawful to own bayonets not carry just own (of course). If it's legal what about taking them to the range for a photoshoot. Lastly I have a question about carrying a knife mostly as a tool of course I have a Swiss knife and I used that is my tool normally and for my understanding it's under the lawful purpose clause or whatever. I was thinking about getting 3.25 in pocket knife foldable blade not assisted in any way I assume lawful I don't know if anyone's had trouble with carrying knives New Jersey other than the few court cases that's still left the wall kind of vague like New Jersey likes it. I'll probably keep carrying the Swiss pocket knife but I find that the blade may be weak for some things but I do like it's simplistic size mostly everything I would probably need for my basic lifestyle. I'm sure carrying a knife has been debated a lot in this forum before but I haven't seen anything so if you have any links or just want to give me the simple rundown I'm fine with that.
Make sure to search Craigslist and e-Bay for "local" people selling their stuff. Saw these today:
A harsh and unfair assessment of your fellow gun owners. I primarily go to ranges in PA, VA for a number of reasons, non of which are because I am a "complainer", a provocateur, or a "schmuck" as you put it. The main reasons I prefer out of state ranges are the following:
1. Based on my personal experiences visiting different NJ ranges, I feel that many NJ ranges (owners) cater to LEO's and have little or no respect for people other than the "anointed". Owners/employees of the ranges that I go to are always cordial with me, and seem genuinely happy to see me. Again, this is my personal experience and may not reflect the experience of others here.
2. Ranges in NJ require upwards of 200 dollars and a class before one can exercise the right to draw from a holster. I need no instruction from NJ or it's instructors. What I learned carrying on the streets of PA, FL, VA, combined with my training is more than sufficient. Ranges in PA, FL, VA etc, allow drawing from the holster without a mandatory overpriced class. Carry in VA for awhile, you will learn real quick!
3. Many ranges out of state allow me to use the range for more than the allotted hour without issue or complaint.
Your comments here show disdain and contempt for your fellow gun owners who you feel are not doing the heavy lifting. You don't know every gun owner in this state and what actions they have taken to improve the 2A in this state. Everyone helps in their own way, and I don't presume to know the actions or inactions of other gun owners. Heavy lifting or not, we have less gun rights now than we did just a few years ago. No chance or hope of conceal carry/open carry in NJ, and no cases before the supreme court. There have been no gains in terms of 2A rights in this state, nada, zilch! Mrs. Peel makes a valid point, but I argue whether supporting these NJ ranges, and their sometimes (nebbish) owners, will somehow translate into a restoration of our rights. What we need is either massive civil disobedience, or a major shift in NJ government. Please stop with the belittling comments as they serve no useful purpose, let's try to uplift our fellow gun owners.
