When I got there, there was 2 people shooting. Me and the another guy had it to ourselves afterwards. Then couple hours later another came. Can't believe it was that empty.

 

Day was perfect and calm winds made a great day to sight in.

I'm planning to be up at Cherry Ridge this Wednesday, 3/9 by around 12:30-1:00.  It's supposed to be a beautiful day. 

Anyone else going to be there?

can we pick a specific day for a meet?  last one Ive been to was @ Range14 & it was a hell of a good time.....big turnout!

Over the past year, I have attended two “shotgun shoot outs” with other NJGF members and have enjoyed meeting and chatting with a number of members, putting faces to screen names, and realizing that in the flesh, we all are more compatible and agreeable than we are when we are just typing our thoughts online.  Is there any interest in possibly seeing who might want to meet at one of the various indoor or outdoor ranges where those who are interested could meet each other, try shooting our various handguns, rifles and/or shotguns?  I appreciate the sane fun and camaraderie that these types of get-togethers' foster.  Cherry Ridge is one obvious option and I am sure there are others around NJ that would also be a possibility.  Just curious…  If anyone is interested, maybe one of our moderators, @Mrs. Peel, could start a new thread about it…..

Actually, I'm going to defer to @Krdshrk - because he has more experience/history with this stuff than me. I think it's a GREAT idea... but I have a vague recollection of hearing it's been somewhat difficult to accomplish at private ranges like Cherry Ridge - because non-members had to be guested in - and that all gets rather complicated...? I could be wrong. Again, I'll let him weigh in.. he call tell us more.

I personally (for purely self-indulgent reasons, LOL) would love to see a NJGF Rifle Shootout (either light or high-powered). :D

I could even see some "roving shootouts" - moving to different ranges in NJ to give different faces an opportunity to attend. I'm spoiled by being a mere 10 min from Clinton WMA, where the Shotgun Shootouts have traditionally been held. But I realize it isn't so nice and close for everyone.

I always enjoy interacting with NJGF member in real life.  I've been to a number of  shooting events, social events, and legislative rallies.  Cherry Ridge would be really easy for me, but I would be open to anywhere else as well.

The main issue is that most ranges are private ranges, and have their own guest policies.  We could potentially approach some ranges to ask them to allow an event, but that can take a while.

That's why the Shotgun shoots work so well - the WMAs are open to the public all the time as long as someone has a hunting license.

Public Ranges get tied up with walk-ons.  Planned events generally cost a lot of money.

Semi-Private ranges (Range 14) will have tons of other people coming in to shoot at the same time and the groups will get mixed up and confused.

Range-14 is probably the best bet, but it's a haul for many people.  I live in Monmouth, by the shore, and it's almost an hour ride for me.

In spite of that, R-14 is very doable.  We have several members here, including myself.  All we need to do is get there early and claim two or three tables.  If we are first on line, then we can get tables next to each other but we cant just walk from table to table with uncased firearms.  It's not as relaxed as the WMA's are.

Each member is allowed three guests, for a total of four on a lane at one time.  Let's say I get a lane for four hours.  Each +1 can tag in and out, just as long as there are never more than four at a table.  Newly arrived shooters may tag in at any time if there are less than four on the lane..

R-14 has just this year implemented a day pass.  So, instead of signing up as a full member, just one person has to get the pass.  It costs $20 for the pass, and $4/hr per shooter.  So, if a party of four want to shoot for two hours, it's 20/4 + 4*2.  So that'd be $13 for each person in the group.

We can absolutely do a R-14 day, but it will require a bit more planning, firm commitment by attendees and more discipline on the firing line.

Cherry Ridge is out for me. That's nearly a 3 hour drive.

Jackson - Well, I don't own a Glock so shooting might be tough, but it is Jackson, it's Father's Day weekend, and my dad lives in Jackson so I will be in the area.

Range 14 is pretty much the same distance for me. I've been to the ranges there for work but haven't been there for shooting.

Shooters is closer. Never shot there but I know they don't require membership. I understand it's a popular place so I imagine it might be tough for a large group.

Full Metal Jacket has two indoor gun ranges, 25 yards, 10 lanes per range. Never seen both filled at the same time. Wouldn't be surprised if we could score an entire range to ourselves. Probably a good hike for North Jerseyians.

Hopefully I'll have my FID soon since I did my fingerprinting this past weekend and my references sent in their paperwork about two weeks ago.

    • Yes, this was around 2010 or so.  Between this and the Cx4, Beretta had the space-gun market cornered.  A number of retailers still list it but all show it out-of-stock or discontinued.  I recall there will different barrel lengths too, particularly 4" and 6". https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1004210822/beretta-u22-neos-carbine-kit-22-long-rifle-1-in-16-twist-16-1-4-blue
    • I apologize if my posts were taken the wrong way. But yours were also much more adversarial than they needed to be.  I suggest we drop it since further posts like that on either side don’t help anything.    As for Reloaderz. I hope they do well. NJ needs more ranges, of any and all types. Anything to expand the positive visibility and push back against the perceived stigma firearms have in this state. 
    •  that writer should be that writer should be embarrassed, you don't pick 3 handguns with a life of less than three years and claim that they are part of the best ever. I'm absolutely going to agree with the Glock just in terms of shears numbers in use reliability and other variables but the Sig the Smith & Wesson and the Heckler LOL  did you read the did you read the article? They gave the reasoning why and hard to argue against it actually.
    • Wow, vaguley remember it... was it when the gun first came out? Generally though, I think the Neos, as cool as it is, was too "atypical" in a crowded marketplace dominated by the Buckmark, Ruger and to lower extent the S&W Victory/22a models. Once you go into higher end, like SW 41 and dedicated 22lr competition guns, no contest there. 




    • Oh Rosey!! You're my fav!
      I had to clarify because my phone was blowing up with notifications because I missed one word: "field" before strip.
      The banter won't scare me off, I'm a little more thick skinned than that! In response to spending more quality time together, I'll only agree if it means busting clays!

      And a happiest of thanksgivings to your beautiful wife and family and of course that fluffy kitten of yours!

      Love,
      Rhi
