Got my mags today! I can now fire off 51 rounds at a time w/o having to stop and reload a single mag. It's crazy...these mags are the same exact size, yet they hold 3 more rounds and they load like butter.

yup got my FID and Permit to Purchase a Handgun today...didnt take me long. i'd been looking online for deals on Glock 19s and thats what i was after. Went shooting at a range with a friend and they didnt have a G19 so i picked the XD9. XD9 is very similar. the XD line was developed to be better Glocks. I was like 80% sure of getting the G19 until i shot the XD9. it's so similar it's scary. almost exact same length, similar width, polyurethane grip and much of the lower, and safety trigger. Also it was cheaper than the G19. ive seen the G19 online for $530 but all online/shipped gun purchases from places outside NJ have to be shipped to a NJ licensed gun dealership and the places usually charge $50-100 b/c of all the paperwork they have to fill out.

The range we went to was fucking sweet. it's a pricey $350/year membership, but that gets you unlimited free lane rentals for you and all friends, free handgun rentals, 10% off all gun purchases and 20% off ammo and targets and shit. So while i didnt buy a membership, buying the gun saved me $85 in lane fees and discounted ammo plus a free 30 day full range membership.
basically they rape walk-in customers but members shoot cheap as fuck. i only have to use their ammo if i use their equipment and with the 20% discount the prices arent terrible if i wanna drool over the 20-something 1911's on display.

don't have any ammo yet and still need a cleaning kit and ear protection. gonna want a bigger mag as well. came with 2 10 rds...ewe.

gun was $550 but i'd already had $150 racked up in lane fees, ammo, ear and eye protection b/w 2 of us and buying the gun saved me half of that so really it cost me about $475 and get to go back for free whenever i want until september. i dont think it was a bad deal.

buying a gun online to have it shipped to them woulda be an extra $100 and i've heard most places charge 50-100, so basically i can add $50-100 to every potential online gun price...fucking awesome.

so now...what's the best ammo to buy for self defense and whats the best for range shooting?

NICE!

1st things first, get these mags:
http://www.mec-gar.com/product.html

2nd-lee since you asked about ammo, you should get Winchester 9mm for range shooting. It comes in a white box...don't know if you remember it from when we shot the other day. They have it at WalMart for dirt cheap.

Image

Now if you want defense ammo, you want to load +P ammo, but you don't want to shoot it regularly at all, since it causes extra strain on the gun. Remington is a good choice.

word.

was looking up transport laws in this communist state:
even someone with valid FID/legal handgun owner can't transport their handgun AT ALL unless it's to/from your own residences and/or businesses/offices, or when moving residencies, or when traveling to/from hunting or target practice/range. period. you can;t drive with a gun in your car unless it's transporting it to or between your home/work, when moving, or when traveling to a place specifically to use the gun. plus, in order to transport, the gun has to be a locked trunk, unloaded, and all ammo has to be in another part of the car without easy access to the gun.

however, someone even worse than this is that there's no specific provisions for non-residents. I think this means you can't bring your gun up here at all. In fact i'm pretty sure you'd need a NJ FID card to go to a range or possess a gun in the state even if you're not a resident. it also means you cant drive THROUGH NJ unless your destination is your house/place of work or a range or you're going hunting. I'm pretty sure you having your gun in this state would be illegal even if you were driving to my place. i could be wrong, but i didnt see anything in the legislation to exempt non-residents here for vacation.

this state fucking sucks. it took just under 6 months to get this license. i applied feb 11 and got it today. NJ law declares the entire process to take no longer than 30 days. ROFL

Daaaaamn. That's schexy!

I'm more attracted to something like this, though: http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/62574-1.html

I really like the Kimber 1911's, but CheaperThanDIrt doesn't have any.
