I found a really nice small gunshop called Aress Arms in Howell today. The owner's name is Ritchie Schwartz, and he juggles the shop with being a firefighter. Nice guy to just talk guns to, and is competitively priced. He also does transfers for $20 plus NICS. The phone number for the shop is 732-886-2010. If you live in Howell you can save a bit of time (and money) by doing transfers through him. His FFL name is Aress Inc, and his business name is American Armory. I had a really enjoyable time hanging out there for a bit today.
Just wanted to make mention of my recent experience with Caso's Gun-A-Rama...
Last friday I emailed them to see if they had what I was looking for in stock, they promptly replied that same morning and I was able to confirm that they did in fact have exactly what I wanted. I went there a couple days later and 20 minutes later walked out with my first handgun, a gen4 G19.
I couldn't be more pleased with Caso's. The two women were extremely helpful, laminated my FID, didn't question my brand selection, and made sure I was happy...which as a first time buyer I was extremely hesitant to even step foot in a gun shop around here, having heard all the internet horror stories about condescending and elitist shop employees. I see a lot of people praising Jim Flynn on this forum, and had considered him despite the fact that Caso's is only five minutes from my house. Glad I took a chance and reached out to them. I will definitely be going there again for future purchases.
Not the most exciting story, I know. Glock 19...blah blah blah...Just happy to be here and wanted to give Caso's the support they deserve.
Some of you may already, but Howell Gun Works is a great shop. Omri and Tom break all the stereo types of the typical gun shop personnel. They are nice guys with vast amounts of knowledge and skill...They also have a nice selection and can pretty much get whatever you want...Definitly worth going there first...
By the time you buy a vise, upper vise block, torque wrench, barrel nut wrench, anti galling compound and find a place to bolt down the vise, you could have been to and back from a gunsmith or armorer three times. If you try to rig something up, it's going to take even longer and there's a chance you will be making another trip to the LGS to buy a new upper receiver.
Go support your local smith and save yourself a lot of hassle doing it.
How about laying 2 short 2x6s on top each other like a step, lay a towel over them, lay your upper assembly with the hand tight barrel nut on top, and cover it with the towel. Now drive your car up on the lower. Tighten away.
USA Carry believes NH does not recognize a Utah non-resident license.
Handgunlaw.us states NH recognizes Utah, but does not specify resident vs. non-resident like USA Carry does.
I could not locate relevant information on the NH website.
