well idiots here who moved next to high school are trying to get the pa announcer at sports games and band to be quieter

Are they going to ask the crowd not to yell or cheer too loud as well? When I was a kid the people who lived around our football field used to sit out on the roofs of their houses on Friday nights and watch the game.

klownpuncher,

Thank you for posting this letter. I was just made aware of this yesterday. Could you tell me where you took the picture? Was it posted on Banger's Door?

My buddy took the pic. He said it was on the door that goes into the range sign in room.

You know, back in the day the solution was to offer the home owner free tickets. I'm pretty sure all those people that live across the street from Pocono Raceway make bank on race day, what with all the parking signs I've seen.

Guess i'm just a lemons from lemonade person.

Your right but, That isn't the case unfortunately. I can name many local weekend racetracks in many states that have gone away due to the power and dollars of A builder, or homeowners with an Attorney.  I'm not just talking in NJ either, As I spent many years on A lot of those tracks in many States and now they are gone.     Nothing even your own property is immune due to the reason I stated or Imminent domain laws

It WAS a nice shop, attached to a really nice range facility

(I've been a member at SJSC since 2005)

 

Before Bangers opened, I questioned (in my own mind) how it could be a money making operation, given that the members of SJSC had gotten used to bringing everything they would need for a day at the range.

If someone forgot their staple gun or ran out of targets, for example, another shooter would always be willing to help out.

 

But with the revelation that the owner of the shop, Chuck Berwick owed his landlord (and benefactor, the late John Aducat) $400K and was not repaying him, that goes a long way to explain how the shop stayed open as long as it did and was as nice as it was. You've got to sell a LOT of inventory to make $400K net.

 

I hope all those with money tied up in the bankruptcy don't have to take too bad a haircut.

I expect that those with guns on consignment in the now-closed shop will get their guns back eventually, but then, anything is possible.

    • I don't know that the death penalty would even work. It seems there's a weird psychology to these mass killers in that they follow a similar pattern to people who commit suicide. In other words, they often PLAN to die as part of the attack... they're killing themselves, but also trying to take a bunch of others with them (in some twisted attempt at going out in a blaze of glory, I guess?). What can you do with sickness like that? I don't think a death penalty would phase most of these people in the slightest. Harden schools, train staff repeatedly to follow the security policies, and have MUCH better, faster intervention when these guys are poppng up on the radar screen at school, at home, etc. - and of course, for those that go on to kill, deprive them of their fame (infamy really) with greatly altered/subdued reporting therefore cutting down on copycats - I think those are the most sensible approaches.  That said, some tiny percentage of psychopathic murderous individuals will ALWAYS be a part of society (always have been and always will be). You can't will it or wish it away entirely. And if you remove one tool from them, they'll move to another. To this day, the worst U.S. mass school killing remains the Bath School Massacre - look it up - been almost a hundred years old now and no guns were used. Determined madmen will find a way. Likewise, Australia has had plenty of mass murders since their gun ban - they just used arson and burned people to death. That's still HORRIFYING! (I don't even kill ladybugs, so this is something I can't even wrap my brain around). But, there's always going to be a few sick outliers like this. Some people propose raising the age at which young people can buy guns. I don't know about that. You have to ask yourself, are kids today so much less mature than in the 1950's? So much less responsible? And if so, why? And should we be allowed to draft them in that case? Or, let them get abortions? Or, let them take hormone blockers, etc? It opens up a whole can of worms that no one seems to want to deal with seriously.
    • i'd venture to agree with what noir said on this....if they knew it was a death sentence.......
    • SA TG, P only stock has been sanded in previous life. trades accepted. nice 590a1. shockwave 12 wood. SA M1 has 43 barrel gauging new. Receivers on these 2 are nice park with deep heel stamps and no pitting. all coming out now are heavily pitted.stock locks tight. will be a nice shooter. HRA above is almost correct. I have about 15 garands. i have a few others will cut loose. I am leaning to the early ones.
    • I disagree slightly. No anti-gun law will ever prevent people killing others, 100% agree. But if we had laws to prevent these asshats from getting publicity and a mandated death sentence. I think that would help a little.
    • Ah !  Ok then.....................
