    on a good note, no water in the gun safe. all the boxes of ammo that got wet are almost dry now, there's going to be a redux of how I store ammo, I'm taking the opportunity to do a layout re-org in the basement, and we're going to change the flooring from carpet to some kind of tile. I'm thinking one of those snap together floating floor systems with an integrated pad.

    Funny. (I saw the pun when I was typing it too.)
    No, just not going to get one that actually sticks to the floor.

    nope. but a bunch of us are calling this Mossberg Friday, and buying their firearms in support of them circumcising Dick's. :D

    I told my dealer to order me up a Mossberg 590 Shockwave in 20ga, to go with the 12ga I already have.

    eta: you can also do Mossberg Monday if you want. doesn't matter.

    in the last 2 weeks i have picked up 6 rifles. including a mossberg. I honestly dont blame the gun makers for leaving dicks. now if the ammo makers leave too it would be great.

    side note what is the process for buying a gun in jersey?

    Hand guns require a Permit to Purchase.
    Long guns require your FID card.

    Buying a long gun in NJ isn't really any different than in PA... present ID, get a NICS (or in your case PICS) check, if you pass pay up sucker and walk out with your blaster.
    For a hand gun as long as you already have a P2P in hand it's the same thing.

    Now the process of getting your FID and/or P2Ps can take a while, and varies by locale. My friend applied for his initial FID and his first P2Ps back in December, and had them back in January, about 40 days total IIRC. For NJ that's pretty much as fast as it can happen.

    P2Ps are good for 90 days, with a possible 90 day extension (the state police are now just automatically signing them so no more taking them back to them. I haven't heard of any towns doing that yet, but I suspect they will as it's one less bit of bovine feces the chiefs have to deal with.)

    CCW is may issue, and is effectively no-issue unless you know the right people.
    that being said, plenty of people carry here, just not legally.

    I don't know if it's a coincidence, but my American Hunter newsletter had this as a feature item yesterday:

    http://www.galleryofguns.com/genie/default.aspx?item=51482

    I already have it (28" and 24" barrels, too), but that 18.5" barrel is on my list for home defense. I'm also trying to find out if I can get the pistol grip separately. (And how hard it is to swap it out for the shoulder stock.)

    I bought Model 54169 as my first shotgun... same basic package with wood instead of plastic furniture. :D

    and if you're thinking of home defense for a shotgun, go look at the 590 Shockwave's. I seriously believe that home defense is the perfect role for that firearm, even if I am pretty darn good at taking down clays with it. :D

    On the 500 it's ridiculously easy.

    What he said. We bought our 500 with a pistol grip and my husband bought a shoulder stock for it - and swaps them when he takes it to the range, then swaps them back.

    I can say, that the bird head grip on the shockwave, is loads easier and better feeling to shoot than the pistol grip on a regular 500

    Bird's head sounds good to me. When I was searching a couple hours ago it seemed to be the choice among others.

    yea going full power in a shockwave is a bad idea, on your first time out. it takes a little getting used to, but after you do you can even shoot it one handed if you're brave. :D
