What's up with Bangers?

Recommended Posts

I went there yesterday having no idea anything was going on. I put half the cost down on an AR556 at the end of September and I wanted to pay it off and pick it up. Saw no cars in the lot, which was odd, then saw the sign on the door. Went back today, cars in lot and lights on, but doors still locked with sign still up. Hope they sort things out fast, I just wish someone would let me know what is going on and when I might be able to get my rifle. The outdoor range looked open, I'm guessing the indoor archery range is closed as well.

On their facebook today:

 

"To all of our loyal customers and Banger's family, we would like to apologize for the inconveniences and disappointment being incurred during this period of time. We are in the process of fighting very difficult legal matters with our current landlords. We have been working feverishly to devise a plan to get people's belongings and firearms back to their rightful owners. We ask for everyone's patience as this is a difficult matter to resolve with little cooperation from the other parties involved. We assure you we are doing everything we can to resolve this issue and address all items with deposits/payments, in for repair, and transfer items to see everything is delivered to the proper parties."

Seems very nice and reasonable.

John Aducat passed away suddenly in July 2016

Wow, Sad Sad news all around for the Berwicks. Great people, Great store. Jake was always helpful and friendly to me and my wife whenever we where there. I hope they pull out of whatever situation they are in.

 

Bangers and SJSC are about the only thing I miss from NJ. The outdoor ranges down here in Texas don't even come close to how nice that range is.

Lets do whatever we can to support them. Its been a horribly trying last few months for Chuck and well Jake. Now even more for Chuck. So hold fast and give him any support and encouragement you can. Here are two brothers that had a vision and went with it. There is a great family (related or not) that have the passsion for hunting and the second amendment. Knowing big John he was very proud of what has become of the range. And im sure he wants it to continue.

Wow, very sad. Jake was great anytime I was there, him and the dog Kimber made it inviting always..Thank you Jake for your service to customers and your country.

Anyone know how he passed?

Condolences to his family & close friends and good luck with everything.

As for cause of death I haven't heard. For him to pass suddenly at 27 years old...I've got my opinions but I'll keep that to myself until I hear otherwise. Hope I'm wrong.

You and me both.

 

I've speculated to a couple of close shooting buddies who are also involved in activities (matches & youth program) with me at SJSC, but we'll have to see (if the truth ever does emerge)

Wow, did not know Jake passed, he helped me so often when I was first getting into firearms. My condolences - I how we or someone can get something together in his memory.

I have put a few purchases on hold because Bangers has been good to me, I'd rather spend my money with them. It pained me to grab ammo, mags and my hunting license somewhere else. 

SJSC is still open but just a note, Sunday shooting has been temporarily pushed back to 10am due to a new home owner int he area filing complaints against the range...

    • Perhaps multiple people. I'd think Baldwin (shooter and Producer), AD, armorer, and the unknown person who put live rounds in the gun could be charged.
    • A common statement I see in defense of Baldwin is "actors are not responsible, that's what a prop master, armorer and/or AD are for". Also, "it's the way Hollywood does it, they've always done it that way". That reminds me of the defenses of the casting couch behavior as well, but that's not what this thread is about.  Ian Hudson was an actor on Rust and on the same set. Here is what he was quoted as saying:  <Hudson says the other, more experienced actors checked their weapons 2 or 3 times after they received them from the armorer, and it didn't matter whether they were told the gun was "cold" or "hot." Baldwin did not check the weapon, but rather relied on the assistant director who assured him the gun was "cold.">  So, that contradicts the common defense that actor's do not check the condition of a firearm. I think  when he said "other, more experienced actors" he means compared to himself, not the killer, but I could be wrong. Link: https://www.tmz.com/2021/10/26/rust-actor-shooting-camera-protection-alec-baldwin/ Then I came across this video of actor Jeffrey Wright. In this video he states he has never not had someone show him a gun was clear before taking possession of it. I can easily see this video being used as evidence, or Jeffrey Wright and Ian Hudson being called to the stand to refute the whole "the actor is not responsible" BS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkeCK13G1NM  I've also seen (didn't copy the link, but it shouldn't be too hard to find) the liability insurance policy was for "only" 6 million. And if there was a clause in the policy regarding negligence, the insurer could refuse to pay out anyway. Some media outlets are making it sound like the New Mexico DA is leaning towards bringing criminal charges against someone. Who is the big question.   
    • Good evening, I am able to sign in, but as soon as I switch to another forum I have to sign in again. I also have trouble sending pms or posting replies, I have to keep going back to sign in. Sometimes I am able to post replies or send pms after multiple attempts. Never happened before, happening now on my tablet and desktop pc. Sometimes after trying to post I get a notice saying my previous content has been restored. I click the x and it sends the post. Help!
