Looks like a pretty good deal for a decent steel target with stand. Can always replace the target once you shoot it up. 3/8 inch. Regular price $80, on sale for $49.99 and free Prime shipping. Shipped and sold by Amazon so if it is crappy quality I am fairly sure they will stand behind it.
I have my Aimpoint red dot zeroed in perfectly at 25 yards. I finally got the chance to shoot my second rifle outside at 50 yards. Red dot easily seen, but EVERY hole was a few inches above where the red dot was at. I know there must be a technical explanation on this and if I set my red dot below where I want the bullet to go it will go into the bulls eye. Is there a good site I can read on the technical aspects on how all that works? I didn't think a difference of 25 yards would be so great, and I certainly do not nor expect everyone zeroes their red dot all the time if they change distances. Just looking to learn and understand better.
I've always just hacked something together to shoot at when I felt like shooting. A scrap piece of plywood leaning on a couple of cinder blocks, a paper target stapled to a 2x4 post driven into the dirt, or a target taped to an old 5 gallon bucket worked fine.
I bought a decent target .22 handgun for my 14 year old daughter to shoot several months ago and finally built a real target to shoot at.
I'm interested in new ideas to improve my little back yard range and wondered what others here have built for themselves.
Here's mine. The plywood slides into the frame from the top and can be replaced once it's shot-out. I'm using 1/4" luan but it will take up to 3/4" ply. The gongs are 8", 6", and 4". The spinner is an old one I built years ago that I could stomp into the ground re-purposed.
The chief can give a 90 day extension, no? So doesn’t seem sensible. I thought the extension was at their discretion, so I’d think they could give you 90 days extension, permits are valid to the statutory length, and it’s effectively the same as denying an extension.
So what am I missing? Don’t think the hold and deny concept holds water.
Totally ridiculous that they have such a backlog. I thought the law said 30 days? To admit they’re back in September admits that they’re in violation. Sounds ripe for an NJ2AS stakeout...
I'm in Newark, longtime FID, just trying to get 3 pistol permits.
10-8-19 Submitted my online registration online
10-9-19 references check
10-11-19 criminal history check completed
12-17-19 called to check with Newark PD, was told they haven't even gotten to September applications yet.
1-22-20 still no word. What can I do? I think Newark has the permits and they're just withholding them from me until the 90 days are up so they can tell me they're no longer valid and I'll have to redo them.
I'm looking to buy a new scope for long range shooting but don't want to spend more than a few hundred dollars. I don't really know much about optics but I just want something that I can shoot up to about 1000 yards with
