After 2 decades of living in the People's Republic of New Jersey, I finally decided to try for a FPID.
My delay in doing so was due to some bogus info I had been told regarding a criminal record (Disorderly Conduct) from 25 years ago that occurred out of state (NY).
Obviously that did not ultimately prevent me from obtaining my NJ license (it certainly didn't prevent me from being issued an M16 in the Corps!), but according to the LEO who I dealt with, it did slow down my approval (5 months!). Seriously!!!!
(Ok, fair enough; at least I was actually able to obtain one. That was a huge relief!)
Anyway, the other delay in applying was based on my lack of knowing where I could go to fire a rifle in this area. It's been a really long time since I've fired a weapon, and I thought that it would be truly torturous to possess a rifle, but then not be able to fire it and get to know it. (kinda like ordering a delicious meal off of the menu.... and then only being allowed to look at it)
There was a time when I participated on various Marine Corps forums, and I was always so frustrated by how many of my fellow jarheads in other states could enjoy such a carefree relationship with their firearms - while I felt that I was being denied even my most basic 2nd Amendment rights, simply because of where I was located.
I'm here to acclimate myself into the NJ gun culture, and hopefully it doesn't leave me feeling too hungry.
At this point I'm looking to (finally) purchase, and to learn what is necessary to navigate in this very restricted AO that I reside in.
And that's the Intro.
Just recently got my PID and starting to get into personal target shooting, as opposed to renting at a range
I've always had great times with my family going to gun ranges (favorite being Sunset Hill in PA) so figured next step would be to start shooting at indoor ranges closer to home more often
Glad to be in a NJ forum for a newbie like me, forgive me for the stupid questions for a while and spamming the search function
I stumbled in here looking for new open dates for Luciano's....
Lived here in WP for 54 years...
I've been into guns all my adult life.
Haven't done much shooting lately due to time and money, but when I discovered Luciano's was opening, I was like a little kid all over again.
One of my passions is weapons among motorcycles and such and I love my collection like kids love their Tonka Trucks...
I'm hoping that the new Luciano's will renew my love of shooting and how can you beat that right in your own town to boot!
They may need a permanent chair and coffee pot for me there, because there is nothing I like to do more is to BS about guns.
Currently have about a dozen weapons... My favs being my H&K USP's and my constantly evolving Bushmaster M4...
Most of my collection are handguns.. only 2 rifles and 1 shotgun.
Let's see if I can remember all my babies..
Colt Python 6" .357
Colt Mark IV Series 70 Govt 45acp
Browning 9mm Hi Power
H&K USP Compact 45...
H&K USP 40S&W
Beretta 92S 9mm
Mossberg 590 12 gauge shotgun with Marine Coat
Remington 700 .308 Police Sniper package
Bushmaster M4 .223
I'm probably forgetting some, but that's it for now.
Happy to find this place. Hopefully it will help me stay in touch more with NJ happenings as well as good conversation.
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!
