The First Time It Hit Me I Was Now Living In PA

Recommended Posts

Have shot a good amount of full auto and tax stamp at industry events and Shot Show Media Days... but here I was at a friends house 15 mins away from me in PA, getting together with a group of his neighbors to just go shoot.

No one had the urge to go knock over a 7-11 or in any way be unsafe. No state police showed up and all of the neighbors were just fine with guns.

Invited a couple of new shooters who had an amazing time.... although I am afraid their gun experience is ruined as they were shooting suppressed 1911s, 22s, a full auto Uzi and AKs for days.

My two Veprs in the picture above... 223 and a 7.62x39.  My SVT-40 however had a few issues... have to tear it down and see if gas or whatnot.  The fun toys were NOT mine. 

God Bless America.... (and Israeli, Russian and German gun designers too...)

The other fun one to shoot was an AR with a binary trigger.  Are those legal in NJ?  Haven't seen much...     Is more fun than a bumpfire stock.

I highly doubt the PRNJ allows binary triggers. I just tried to order one from brownell's and it let me go through the ordering process. I did not complete the order of course!

There is nothing there yet that prevents it AFAIK... at least not regulated out yet.   They are a far better solution than bump stocks, much more useable too.  Would easily pick up a few to have... until eventually they are regulated...

My mind still hasn't wrapped itself that we finally made it out of NJ. Only here in TN about 45 days. Been busy still unpacking and such. Got my CCW just after getting my new DL. Kind of goes hand in hand here. You get qualified, (in my case by a former FBI agent), then it arrives in the mail after you dump your application at DMV. Funny, when in class, chatting and mentioning NJ, are we bound by any dumb laws? He said, "you won't have any probs here with anything. Welcome to TN and free America"....
Haven't scoped out what range to get to yet. But it's not uncommon to hear gun owners here either just plinking or hunting in the back Green Space.... Still getting use to carrying.
Hardest part of being here is I had to put my dog to sleep... Been really bummed. :ed:

Green Space from my back deck....about 40 acres....

Binary triggers are illegal in NJ because of a wording difference from the ATF definition of a machine gun. 

NJ definition of machine gun:

"Machine gun" means any firearm, mechanism or instrument not requiring that the trigger be pressed for each shot and having a reservoir, belt or other means of storing and carrying ammunition which can be loaded into the firearm, mechanism or instrument and fired therefrom.

 

ATF definition:

Any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger

 

Trigger does not have to be pressed in order to fire a bullet with a binary trigger.  Making it illegal in NJ.

Thanks for that awesome explanation.

That's awesome. Looks like a good time.

Not to rain on the freedom parade but it may only last so long. Dem's are pushing gun control bills so quickly nowadays that PA may be right behind NJ. And it'll spread from there..err it's been spreading actually. Tx, AZ, PA guys always said "it wont happen here" but it's only a matter of time unfortunately.

Sadly, same for Florida as well.  They won't stop until this entire country has turned "socialist..."  :facepalm:

Yes, which is a shame for you youngsters. We old farts can still move, carry and shoot at will and then die before the socialist movement.

Yup.... I'm probably more on your side of the age pendulum that you think, but I hope I still have a few years left, and I hope that I still can enjoy my avocation, as well as plan for the appropriate disposition of my "inventory" after I'm gone.

I know what you mean.  Been in SC now 5 months and it still seems surreal.  Since we live downtown, next year I would like to try to find some rural acreage to be the family "farm", some space for shooting, hunting, fishing, whatever.
