How did you hear about NJGF?

Recommended Posts

So, how'd you hear about us? Found you guys on a google search for .308 rifles

How long did you lurk here before registering? About a month

What prompted you to register? Out of all the gun forums I found the posting here was most inline with what I wanted. I am not trying to be a sniper or hijack threads because I cant read directions! This site is run rite

So, how'd you hear about us?

Google search for handgun dealers in NJ, this site was about the 3rd one down.

 

How long did you lurk here before registering?

A few hours, was home sick and fell asleep before I could sign up after actually being here less than 30 minutes. Wonderful thing after a few hours, it was still here and not a dream.

 

What prompted you to register?

It's easier to look inside than from outside, seems like a good group of like minded people

So, how'd you hear about us? Did a Google search for handgun info and discussion.

How long did you lurk here before registering? Only about a day.

What prompted you to register? I wanted to get in on the conversations. (I'm a pretty sociable guy!)

I was Googling about how to deal with guns I had inhereited and came across the link to this forum since there had been discussions on this topic here.

 

Pretty much registered right away. I had a lot of questions I needed answers to and felt I'd get more assistance/respect if I was registered.

 

Inherited some guns and needed to get legal.

Take a look at the OBRPC being you are in Colonia, it's probably the closest range with an outdoor facility, that and the indoor range is 24 hours access so it fits any schedule.

 

If you want to know more there are plenty of people including myself that can answer any questions you have.

 

Where abouts in Colonia? I graduated from Colonia a few years (decades) ago.

While in the market for my first handgun I google searched some NJ laws and restrictions and the site came up, I signed up pretty much instantly. I would say that the low amount of subscribers to visitors ratio could also be effected by people stumbling across this site via google search or link from other forums but that they arent from NJ so they dont register.

Stumbled onto the forum when looking for info on local ranges. Signed up 20 min later, and posted to ask if any member of SCFGPA might let me tag along with them to see the facility. GlennP and Px4storm showed me the range!

Being a longtime member of the airsoft community, and having interest in getting my FID, and stuff, I asked some questions about oobtaining the FID, and other questions pertaining to "Real Steel" on Airsoft NJ/ NJ airsoft league. Some questions were answered, but overall, discussion about getting real firearms isn't looked well upon since they try to distance themselves from the image that our sport is dangerous. Of course, that being said, most of the airsoft community has their own firearms, or plan to own in the future. And someone referred me to NJGF to learn more. I browsed for a while, but I didn't join until I got my FID. Actually, thinking about it, I believe it was the founder of the new airsoft boards who referred me here. Regardless, I was glad to find this community.

So, how'd you hear about us?

I came across NJGF when I was googling process times for FID in NJ and came across the "NJ FID application data collection effort" tread (great idea by the way)

 

How long did you lurk here before registering?

Around two weeks.

 

What prompted you to register?

I really wanted to contribute to the FID data collection that brought me to this forum. Freehold Twp where I live and applied turn it around in 29 days, and I wanted to give the rest of my fellow Freeholders thinking of applying some good news. Also, being really new to firearms, I was very interested in what fellow NJ gun owners had to say.

Heard about the forum from a buddy of mine at Atlantic County Pistol Range, He said there was a great deal of knowledge passed around on this forum about New Jersey specific topics. I looked over the site and joined about 5 minutes later. I haven't posted much yet but I would like to in the future. Im a bit computer illiterate so i'm still figuring out how to navigate the forum. I was prompted to join the site when I saw so many local firearm dealers were affiliated with the site. I saw that as a good way to speak with different shops in NJ about finding a certain rifle for me that i'm unable to locate.

Hello,

 

I searched for either shooting ranges or nra step classes on google, and clicked on one the threads, and so glad i found it!!

I think I registered pretty much immediately, because the content on the thread was really good and was afraid i'll forget the name of the blog

 

I visited many other blogs... but here i feel like at home :)

I was looking for information on transport of firearms in NJ and to/from PA and came across the site here. I lurked as a visitor for a couple of days before actually singing up....wanted to when I first found it but didn't have any idea for a user name...lol.

 

Great site though! I found out about Jim Flynn's Truck Repair here - and he's only 15 minutes down the road from me. :)

    • I have a Springfield 1903 that I inherited long ago.  It was my grandfather's, my father's and finally mine but I know little about it! I also have the original bayonet that it came with.  It's made by Springfield and the serial # is 249839.  I have been told it's unsafe to shoot at that #. I have found that this 1903 was actually made in 1903 and has a casehardened receiver. I know that myself and my descendants have never fired it. The rifling looks brand new for a 119 year old rifle! I know nothing about it's value, how to judge it's condition, etc.  I put a few quick pics below and would appreciate any guidance you could give me.  
    • That paragraph describes the method of securing a firearm when being transported under a number of clauses in that section. You have to read the whole thing. It begins with: So look back to see what 2C:39-5 says about handguns and rifles/shotguns: Note the 2 underlined parts. If you have a permit to carry a handgun, possession of a handgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. However, almost nobody ever gets a permit to carry a handgun so almost all of us have to work under the exemptions for handguns. If you have an FPIC, possession of a rifle or shotgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. Notice that there is no mention of a loaded handgun, therefore all handguns are treated the same, loaded or not which is how carry permit holders can carry loaded handguns - it is not until you are forced to transport under the exemptions that being unloaded is required for handguns. However, possession of loaded rifles or shotguns is specifically called out as an offence. The thing you may realize from this is that if you have an FPIC, you do not have to adhere to 2C:39-6.g and can have the unloaded rifle or shotgun uncased. That is not to say you wouldn't potentially get jammed up under another charge, such as causing a public alarm or disturbance if you were walking down Main St with it on a sling, but you're not committing a firearms offence per se. Now go back and read what HE and I have said before - do not take my word for any of this. I am not a lawyer and this advice is worth no more than what you paid me for it. Read the whole of 2C:39 and 2C:58 and the relevant parts of the Admin Code, and then decide for yourself whether you believe me or need to ask someone who is actually qualified to explain this.
    • The statutes for transporting firearms do not specify handguns, but seem to apply to all firearms?   2C:39-6 g.   Any weapon being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
    • Passed my online exam, but no field sessions available yet. And can I bring a 12-gauge shotgun only, or do I have to use a muzzleloader too?   When do they resume? 
    • I have that same S&W 686 6 shot in a 2.5 barrel, and I keep it at arm's reach at night from my bed loaded with 38 +P HP ammo. 357 ammo has too much recoil in a 2.5 barrel for home defense.
