Someone named maksim summoned me from another forum :D

 

I signed up about 10 min after I got the message about this forum.

that is actually what interests me even more. So far this month we had over 1400 individuals visit the website, yet only 240 registered. =P

Does that count unique IP's?

 

Say a guest visits from home, then work, then somewhere else.. do each get counted as a unique visit?

Very good question Chad. I visit the site from Work, my cell phone and home.

 

I signed up as soon as I found this place. I love reading gun related websites but I always felt left out because I knew that half the stuff people talk about online are not applicable in NJ. For example I really wanted a 9mm XDM only to find out they do not make a NJ legal magazine.

 

After finding this forum, I don't still think that is true. However the person who sold me my glock 19 told me that. That is why I got the 19.

Anonymous invitation from another forum.

About 20 minutes.

The obvious vast knowledge, tolerance for noobs, local flavor and good fellowship. :D

It counts unique IPs, so one computer one ip. Office buildings are a different story, as all people on one network will have one ip. the 3 computers I have in the home, since connected to one router all have same ip.

 

just looking at the stats.... we had the highest number of visits this past weekend, since launching the forum. apx 500 yesterday alone.

 

take 240 members, even if say every person here has 2 locations they login in, home and work (dont you people work? would hate to be your boss....) 8-) that is 500. by a margin of 3 to 1... lots more lurkers.

 

and the numbers dont include google, yahoo, msn bots or anything looking for our site.

I am glad my boss doesn't know how much time I spend on here, it would be a very bad thing for me if he did.

 

Stop lurking in the background people.. join in on the conversations, share your experiences, meet some really cool people and maybe learn something in the process :D

Joined right away.

 

Wanted to ask questions and respond to posts.

 

It's been good being here and meeting, both online and in person, lots of good people with a passion for our hobby and fighting for our 2nd Amendment rights.

Was browsing through another firearms website (firearmstalk.com), and happened to come across a post there that led me here. I couldn't say who the poster was as it escapes me.

Spent probably around an hour browsing through the content at the time. Ultimately I found that having a focus-fire forum for NJ gun owners like myself would be FAR more beneficial then some random forums. Having people that know first hand the laws, places to purchase, ranges, etc in NJ is priceless.

Google searched for some info on NJ Firearms Laws and this eventually came up

 

Lurked for no more than an hour, and that same day i registered

 

I like the local feel of the forum, it wasn't like one of those massive forums, where you feel like your NJ questions aren't understood by all

I saw a post about njgf in a different forum.

 

.0003 seconds

 

I thought it was great that we have a forum dedicated to *our* state. And all of us share the same frustrations by the laws here. Local people talking about local things, for me it doesn't get much better then that.

 

This is a great place, LOTS to learn, lurkers should def. join!

I saw the link on Paul's Arms-n-Ammo site. Visited and joined the same day.

 

As has been mentioned earlier I liked the tone and attitude of the posters and the fact that there was so much NJ specific info available that is so hard to find anywhere else.

    • Yes, this was around 2010 or so.  Between this and the Cx4, Beretta had the space-gun market cornered.  A number of retailers still list it but all show it out-of-stock or discontinued.  I recall there will different barrel lengths too, particularly 4" and 6". https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1004210822/beretta-u22-neos-carbine-kit-22-long-rifle-1-in-16-twist-16-1-4-blue
    • I apologize if my posts were taken the wrong way. But yours were also much more adversarial than they needed to be.  I suggest we drop it since further posts like that on either side don’t help anything.    As for Reloaderz. I hope they do well. NJ needs more ranges, of any and all types. Anything to expand the positive visibility and push back against the perceived stigma firearms have in this state. 
    •  that writer should be that writer should be embarrassed, you don't pick 3 handguns with a life of less than three years and claim that they are part of the best ever. I'm absolutely going to agree with the Glock just in terms of shears numbers in use reliability and other variables but the Sig the Smith & Wesson and the Heckler LOL  did you read the did you read the article? They gave the reasoning why and hard to argue against it actually.
    • Wow, vaguley remember it... was it when the gun first came out? Generally though, I think the Neos, as cool as it is, was too "atypical" in a crowded marketplace dominated by the Buckmark, Ruger and to lower extent the S&W Victory/22a models. Once you go into higher end, like SW 41 and dedicated 22lr competition guns, no contest there. 




    • Oh Rosey!! You're my fav!
      I had to clarify because my phone was blowing up with notifications because I missed one word: "field" before strip.
      The banter won't scare me off, I'm a little more thick skinned than that! In response to spending more quality time together, I'll only agree if it means busting clays!

      And a happiest of thanksgivings to your beautiful wife and family and of course that fluffy kitten of yours!

      Love,
      Rhi
