Excellent Wife

Army Mom New to NJGF

Recommended Posts

Glad to have found the NJGF!  A little about me:

I've owned guns and have been shooting for about 5 years. My husband and I have three children: one in college, one active duty Army, and one Army National Guard. We are all politically active and fight for our 2A rights among other important liberties that certain groups try to take from us.  

I hope to visit from time to time and get to know folks and keep up with NJ gun info.

Welcome. We always welcome Excellent Wives. I know, because I have one.

And thank you and your family for their service to our country.

Keeping up with NJ gun info is a challenge. We all strive to meet it. And ultimately 'drive down the curve', to put it in current parlance.

Welcome and thank you to you and your family for their service.

After the world returns to normal ya' all should come out to one of the "Shotgun Shoot Outs" (clay shoots at Wildlife Management Areas).  LOTS of fun.  You don't need a shotgun.  Just bring clays and shells.  Plenty of people will share.

Taylor ham, of course (I'm raised in north Jersey!). 

Will have to figure out the meatloaf thing at some point. 

Can I reply directly under someone's post - or only here at the bottom?

 

Only here at the bottom - but you can click on the "Quote" button to quote them.... or the + button to multi quote if you want to reply to more than one.

A very learned person, I see.

Do not under circumstances try the meatloaf. Legend says the corona virus is mother nature teaching us a lesson for mixing fruit and meat in the same dish.

    • Every ones pretty jammed with work.... My usual turn around is a day or so.. we are about 3 days give or take now.  May i ask what kinda brake your having installed?  Was there something that needed extra attention?   When was the last time you spoke to him?
    • Thanks again.  I think the 3.5 hours may turn into 6 or 7 for me but it seems doable.
    • I've had a full frame apx for about a year now. I got it pre covid for 350 and it was a solid buy. Trigger stock is pretty fantastic for a cheap plastic framed gun. I put a reduced power striker spring in and it felt really nice pre and post install. The mag release is very positive and easy to hit. Slide hold open is hard to use like a standard Glock one. I wouldn't mind an aftermarket extended one like Glocks have. Especially hard when used as a lefty slide release. Fit and finish is solid. The modularity is inferior to that of the sig. It requires a lot more operations and the spring and pin fiddling can be a pain the first few times. Not really a big deal unless u like swapping frames around like a mad man, but I do have one with finger grooves and one with out and I've swapped back and forth at least 2 or 3 times. And it's easier to do each time. However, actual field stripping is simpler than even the Glock. However, the pin can be rather stiff to rotate initially. The dingus for the firing pin black is weird but I don't foresee it causing any issues. Not particularly sure why it needed to exist but w/e. Sights are good. Nothing to write home about but are easier to pick up on when drawing the pistol. The slide design is meh. Tim from MAC is right. It's not as easy to grip as traditional slide cuts are, but it does the job. I have not put it through a mud test to see how slippery it may get, but I can assume MACs results are quite representative of the nature of the beast. Mags are steel which is cool. Solidly built.  And weren't stupid expensive when I started getting myself a uspsa setup.  Overall for 350 bucks it was a steal when I got it on GunBroker pre covid pricing. I know they are gone up since. I'd say even at a price comparable to a Glock 19, a Glock needs a trigger to feel like the apx does in terms of shootability, so I'd say it's still an ok alternative to another Glock should you have one. But if you want really good 3rd party support, glock would be the clear winner. As that's what hurts the apx most.
    • Oh hey!! Welcome! I also live in Morris County (I'm from Morris Township) and recently bought my first home! I'm not so new to shooting/ guns as I've been shooting for almost 20 years and a gun owner for almost 15. Local public ranges have turned me off with such long wait times lately so I joined a private one (Cherry Ridge in Vernon. It's a drive, but scenic and worth it to me) Locally, I'm about 10-15 minutes from the shotgun practice range at the Chester WMA, Black River. And I head there for some quick clay busting when the mood strikes.  Feel free to reach out to me if you wanna chat about local spots!  Rhi
