Yo, from the Shore

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've made a few post, but figure I should do a proper introduction. I grew up in the midwest, but left there when I joined the Marines. After doing my 4 years active, I ended up settling in Southern California and lived there until 2012. My wife grew up in North Philly and Bucks County, PA, so we ended up relocating out here on the east coast back in 2012 to be near family. We tried the Philly burbs bit for awhile, but missed living near the ocean, so I voluntarily forfeited my 2A rights to live in Ocean County near the shore. I'll pause for the laughter... Hey a happy wife is a happy life as they say!

I do enjoy the water, kayaking, etc... but for the past four years since I relocated to NJ I pretty much put my shooting past time on hold. And oh, have I missed it dearly. I've been incredibly busy with work and family and just getting settled in to the area, but if I'm being honest part of me was reluctant to succumb to the states requirements for an FID. Seeing as I can't even purchase ammo without one, well... that finally ended!

From the shooting perspective I like it all, but my main interest is in defensive training. I'm looking into what training is available locally, as well as what's available within reasonable travel distances that I might be able to make it to in the next year. I've done a few IDPA shoots in the past and would love to get more into the competitive side if even just for the fun. I'd also like to get involved in fixing some of the draconian laws in this state, especially the ridiculous conceal carry restrictions. Moving out of PA and giving that up was not an easy pill to swallow! Not to mention all the firearms restrictions, but I know I'm preaching to the choir. I look forward to getting to know people here and hopefully meeting up for some events and shoots in the future!

    • We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind! Lets see if I got this right…   � If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.   � Somehow it’s Un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.   � Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegal Mexicans voting in our elections are good.   � It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it's an impeachable offense if the President inquires about it.   � Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.   � People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.   This after 250,000 white union soldiers died to free the slaves and the subsequent freed slaves had already been given 40 acres and a mule to stimulate their life of freedom.   � Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing conservative people in restaurants is virtuous.   � People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for useless degrees.   � Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you'd better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.   � Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate Central-American gang-banger who jumps the southern fence is welcome.   � $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for 'free' health care is not.   � If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.   � People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.   � We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, and it seems like a great plan to us.   � Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.   � Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.   � And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists"?!   These are available:
    • You guys were a ton of fun. And I think I dropped more mags then anyone. Stupid fat hands and G34 extended release, ripped that out! Looking forward to carbine 1.
    • What? Sorry I just ignored this thread because of how whiny it is to call for the recall of a governor because you lost the popular vote and didn't get what you want.  https://abcnews.go.com/US/hairstylists-covid-19-exposed-140-people-salon/story?id=70859389&cid=social_fb_abcn&fbclid=IwAR2DeEh_sHtjGxjBcr2UB9lJl8p9xOkGbO4ctQ6a-KLv168W8HpE_nMUccU
