NRA shooting clubs in NJ

Recommended Posts

I am looking for NRA shooting clubs. I am interested in the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification courses of fire and starting to enter some competitions. I searched the NRA web site for clubs near me and tried to contact them but have not heard back from any yet.

Does anyone belong to or know anything about these clubs?

Hawthorne Gun Club

Mountain Competition Pistol Club

Timberline Outdoorsman Club

Hillsdale Targeteers

Or any others?

Thanks

I know you are far away but South Jersey Shooting Club is going to have these qualification shoots for the NRA.

To be honest the NRA doesn't really have a lot to do with competition anymore. Bullseye is pretty much their last stand. You can shoot bullseye at almost every club, Old bridge, Central Jersey, etc. I do recommend that you also look at the many many other disciplines out there. I have nothing against good old NRA, its just that they spend a lot more effort on politics then they spend on shooting, and that's great, but their involvement with competition shooting is now minimal.

I thought Hillsdale Targeteers closed down after the Lead-O-Phobes closed the ranges around here due to toxic lead concerns and/or restricted their use to adults over the age of 18.

 

Did you check and see if the Ridgewood Rifle Club is still in existence? They are still listed as an NRA & USA shooting club, but private. I got my 4-position Rifle qualification in Smallbore (.22) there through their NRA Marksmanship Qualification program, but that was more than three decades ago.

I heard Hillsdale Targeteers will be using the range in Woodland Park (Gun for Hire). That’s great news.

    • I have a Springfield 1903 that I inherited long ago.  It was my grandfather's, my father's and finally mine but I know little about it! I also have the original bayonet that it came with.  It's made by Springfield and the serial # is 249839.  I have been told it's unsafe to shoot at that #. I have found that this 1903 was actually made in 1903 and has a casehardened receiver. I know that myself and my descendants have never fired it. The rifling looks brand new for a 119 year old rifle! I know nothing about it's value, how to judge it's condition, etc.  I put a few quick pics below and would appreciate any guidance you could give me.  
    • That paragraph describes the method of securing a firearm when being transported under a number of clauses in that section. You have to read the whole thing. It begins with: So look back to see what 2C:39-5 says about handguns and rifles/shotguns: Note the 2 underlined parts. If you have a permit to carry a handgun, possession of a handgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. However, almost nobody ever gets a permit to carry a handgun so almost all of us have to work under the exemptions for handguns. If you have an FPIC, possession of a rifle or shotgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. Notice that there is no mention of a loaded handgun, therefore all handguns are treated the same, loaded or not which is how carry permit holders can carry loaded handguns - it is not until you are forced to transport under the exemptions that being unloaded is required for handguns. However, possession of loaded rifles or shotguns is specifically called out as an offence. The thing you may realize from this is that if you have an FPIC, you do not have to adhere to 2C:39-6.g and can have the unloaded rifle or shotgun uncased. That is not to say you wouldn't potentially get jammed up under another charge, such as causing a public alarm or disturbance if you were walking down Main St with it on a sling, but you're not committing a firearms offence per se. Now go back and read what HE and I have said before - do not take my word for any of this. I am not a lawyer and this advice is worth no more than what you paid me for it. Read the whole of 2C:39 and 2C:58 and the relevant parts of the Admin Code, and then decide for yourself whether you believe me or need to ask someone who is actually qualified to explain this.
    • The statutes for transporting firearms do not specify handguns, but seem to apply to all firearms?   2C:39-6 g.   Any weapon being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
    • Passed my online exam, but no field sessions available yet. And can I bring a 12-gauge shotgun only, or do I have to use a muzzleloader too?   When do they resume? 
    • I have that same S&W 686 6 shot in a 2.5 barrel, and I keep it at arm's reach at night from my bed loaded with 38 +P HP ammo. 357 ammo has too much recoil in a 2.5 barrel for home defense.
