Best of luck, I transferred my licenses to my property in Maine, there is a lot less bullshit to deal with up there. The application process with the ATF is much faster than the application process through the NJSP. Another reason why it made moving everything to Maine worthwhile, local governent doesn't interfere with federal guidelines
Use ball valves for everything else, even fixture stops. For hose hydrants, anti-freeze or even regular, use multi-turn.
Gate valves are a different animal, they work fine unless you need to get to a different job or it's 4pm on Friday.
now that I'm a Maine resident I'm supposed to get an out of state FID card but I'm not going to. I spend equal amount of time between the 2 states but my driver's license is for Maine. If I'm gonna buy a new gun I'm doing it up there where I don't need to buy something that's been neutered. Only disadvantage I think I while I'm in NJ is being able to buy handgun ammo in person, I can just drive 30 minutes to Easton and do that. I also know I can't bring any NFA items to NJ that aren't class 1's.
