Back by popular demand, the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners proudly announces we're once again holding our summer Sporting Clays Tournament on Wednesday July 25th at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays in Coplay, PA. This year special emphasis is being placed on getting as many youth and women to attend in hopes the "infection" of the use of firearms will spread! To this end we're accepting sponsorship's & donations to get those that wouldn't normally be able, to attend. 100 birds presented at 16 stations along a course that surrounds an abandoned quarry.

Based upon my somewhat biased opinion, my suggestions are:
1. A .22 target pistol. My first purchase was a S&W Model 41, which has had so many rounds down the barrel, it currently needs a new barrel and slide. M-41's are great pistols, but I would recommend a Ruger Mark IV - much less expensive than a M-41, just about as accurate and not as ammo-fussy (I have a MK III), and the biggest problem with the Rugers (the take-down & re-assembly) was finally fixed with the Mark IV.
2. A .38 or (better) ,357 revolver. Any of the major brands (S&W, Colt, or Ruger) will do. You want a medium size with a 4 or 6 inch barrel; not a little 2-inch snubbie, and you will be more-or-less set for whatever you want to shoot. The revolver will teach you trigger discipline, you can shoot anything from full-power to light target loads, and reloading the .38 is about as easy as it gets. I have reloaded thousands upon thousands of .38 and .357 rounds for mine.
3. Here is where I am torn. Once upon a time, I would have said a good quality 1911 in .45...but 9mm is SO cheap to shoot its hardly worth the reloading. I have a 1911 in 9mm and its great fun, but I know little about other pistols in 9mm, so I defer.
