We have lots of state land around here. A call to the local Forest Ranger station proved very helpful. They gave me directions to a bunch of state land areas close by that I can legally shoot in. And what ones I couldn't.

I just looked up state land that you can shoot on in NJ and there are a bunch of places but they all say, "NO HANDGUNS OF ANY TYPE PERMITTED".

I'm guessing I'd be allowed to buy a range permit for PA living in NJ? I'd be totally be down with that. Sorry if this seems like a really stupid question.

Does anyone have any experience with ordering from Rockwell Arms?

They have a Sig SP2022 for $200 cheaper than my local FFL. I'm considering ordering it through Rockwell and having it sent to my FFL. But, since I've never done anything like this before I'd like to know if it's a painless thing and pretty easy to do?

The biggest issue with that IOF, would be how to transport the handgun thru communist NJ to the relative freedom of the PA border. Make sure you find out the laws - not just hearsay either - KNOW them. You have to.

This is the part MA loves - they've made our gun laws so convoluted and confusing, it takes a TEAM of lawyers MONTHS to decipher just ONE SECTION!!! :mad:

And The Constitution fit on ONE PAGE ..... :roll:

As it's been explained to me I can transport my firearms and ball ammo from my home to the range and back. My firearm can go from my home to the range and the gun store and back. Hollow point ammo is still weird to me. I can transport it from the store to my home and from my home to the range. But unlike ball amm I can not bring it from the range back to my home. The gun has to be in a locked case away from the ammo while transporting it and the ammo also needs to be in a locked case away from the ammo. Glove box or center console is not an acceptable container.

As far as transportation into other states. From how it was explained I can do it but have to follow the laws in each state as I pass through them.

Again this is how the FFL explained it to me but I've been trying to gather as much information before I do anything. I have copies of both the NJ State firearms law and the NJ State gun restrictions.

I still haven't gone to the range. Few more weeks before I can join.

That's a pretty cool looking gun. I remember watching a show on one of the outdoor channels about the Henry. It breaks down and everything is stored in the stock if I remember correctly.

I have my 1911 and ammo sitting with Dessicant packs. In fact I think I need to change the one that's in with the gun.

Just came back from the store too. The wife decided to come with me too. We walk in the door and she handsnme $200 and says, 'Happy Father's Day.'

It wasn't enough to buy anything and even if it was I still couldn't as I have a fee more weeks before I can purchase another handgun. But it was enough to order one.

Looked at another group of guns and a few that I had already looked at. Went back and forth on the Beretta 92FS and Sig SP2022. Needless to say the 92FS is the one I ended up ordering. Just seems like a much better gun.

Forgot that gun existed. I've wanted one since I first heard about it a few years back. That thing is sweet! Excellent survival tool right there. 8-)

I have 2 Henry lever action rifles and never saw so smoot action. My 30-30 Marlin has a much more rude action compare to the Henry butter like action. Nice and affordable American made rifles. :idea:
The AR-7 caliber is standard .22LR. A nice semi-auto, and the Henry's catalogs are very nice to look at.
