I had to show this wagon because one of my friend's father had one, although not in the condition below. I remember he asked to take us for a ride on RT 287 in NJ in the mid '70s. At that time going up towards Bedminster was still pretty light in traffic, especially after working hours. Well 3 or 4 of us were trying to find a polite way of declining because what teenager wanted to tool around in a station wagon. They weren't cool. Well we learned a thing or two about engines, especially when he opened it up on the Interstate! I couldn't believe a stodgy, heavy wagon could move like that!
1969 Chevrolet Kingswood 427
Station wagons are not usually thought of as muscle-cars, but the Kingswood deserves the label as it is a proper pavement punisher. In 1969, if you were picky with the options packages, you could order the big family truckster with the 427 cubic-inch Turbo-Jet V8, pushing 390-horsepower through a four-speed manual transmission.
With all the kids strapped in, and despite weighing more than all the moons of Jupiter, the Kingswood could achieve a 0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 15.6 seconds. That’s not bad for a wagon the size of Texas designed for family hauling.
"And some like two guns. But one's all you need if you can use it..." - Shane
I have to repeat something. We're talking a station wagon off the line, not one of these one-offs that were made for racing by the car companies.
"0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 15.6 seconds."
Remember in 1969 the Kawasaki Mach III 500 had these numbers. It packed 50 odd HP and 12 second quarter mile times into a $999 package!
Buyer's Club Info$69.34
Not a horrible price considering most ammo is 3-4x the price. This is about 1.5-2x the price for .22LR. It's supposed to ship before the end of the month. I ordered 1k rounds for myself and another 1k for a buddy.
Well it seems that they just got a case to go to District Court with carry. The NRA is taking some certified instructor that wanted a CCR but was turned down. I don't know why we just don't go straight to SCOTUS, because we know the district and circuit courts will turn the case down. I would love NJ to one of the 1st new shall states with our new SCOTUS majority. :)
He's either wrong or you misunderstood what he said.
I think it's the latter based on your last paragraph. You can't use hollow points or FULL METAL JACKET for SD in NJ???
You can use either at home. Full metal jacket is not a good idea as it overpenetrates but you certainly can use it. If it's what you got use it. It works okay. We fought all our wars with FMJ and it seemed to work.
You need to become more familiar with the laws that govern the permissible use of lethal force in NJ.
I've only been a firearms instructor for about 45 years. What could I know?
