Up here you basically make the purchase and then wait for a permit to transport from the chief firearms officer. Now you have to have a restricted license and the transport permit if only good from the store to home. But then home to a certified range and then home. And that's it. By most direct route of course. It can take a day to get authorization sometimes but if you call in while waiting it can be under a couple hours just dont call at lunch time.

There is no carry here of any kind

Finally was able to send in the paperwork for my "Gear Up" rebate. Tried to do it online, what a PITFA for me. Tried for 2 days, everytime i got to the upload a pic of receipt part, it wouldn't let me do that. Tried on my phone as well. Ended up calling Springfield. First time, the lady was pretty snippy. Second time, i got a nice woman who walked me through the process of downloading & printing a copy, making copies with my printer. She was awesome. Mailed it all out today. Certified, return receipt. :rockon:

Yea twin there is a lot of bullshit
There is a farmer who was charged with second degree murder for defending his home and shooting one of the assailants. Call 911 and maybe they will be there in an hour. It's big news in court right now. The kid shot was Indian and the media has been extremely one sided. It's gone from some make believe story where the kids were out swimming in a river heading home got a flat and pulled into a farmers yard for help only to be struck with a shower of bullets. And now the truth has come more and more out where these kids were nowhere near swimming and had in fact robbed one or two other farms had a broken rifle they had tried to break into a truck with and when they came to this farmers place they tried to run over his son and attacked his wife. He fired warning shots and then shot one of them.
This is how the news spins it
http://cjme.com/article/1218247/prelimi ... m-shooting

http://cjme.com/article/1218762/prelimi ... oting-case

It's pretty bad. I stand with that farmer. In my mind he did what he had to. And so far it's all one sided because they are afraid of racisim and repercussion Bla Bla Bla. You come onto my property and I don't care what colour you are and threaten my family then I too would be in this farmers place. What else can you do

Technically California had a Castle doctrine. Not sure how much help that actually does.

"Just Holster It" ----- https://justholsterit.com/shop/

What an awesome holster they make & an awesome LOCAL company to deal with. So, I went looking for holsters today for the new XD. Really liked this one: https://justholsterit.com/product/hybri ... -holsters/ So, i ordered it, it was about 1:30pm. The owner drove my order to my gun shop, who called me at 5:30pm. I drove in & picked it up. This is an Inside the waistband (with the metal clips on), an Outside the waistband (with clips removed), and your belt can be worn behind the gun through the slots, or also around the gun (for even more security if desired). The leather is really thick. And, for another $21.00, I also ordered a shell for my Beretta 92FS. I can use the same holster for both guns (just remove the 4 screws & replace with the Beretta shell). I am gonna take a drive there sometime soon & purchase a belt as well. I have not seen that kind of customer service in a LONG time. Just thought they deserved a shout-out. There is 1 bad review online, but based on all the people I talked to today, that one guy was probably an ass. They said the owner is such a nice guy & his dad also, that it helped them make the decision to carry their product, & the fact that their products work well.

Nope, not yet, got lots going on, with higher priorities. Death in the wife's family. Corolla is making a couple of different horrible clunking sounds---I diagnosed it as a combo problem. Worn out, & cracked sway bar bushings and worn out & cracked lower control arm bushings. I could watch them move when she put it in gear, let it roll about 3" & hit the brakes hard, both in forward and revers. Parts are ordered & on their way. Gotta love RockAuto.com ! I am gonna attempt to do this myself---AFTER she retires on Friday. Then I can take my time & go at my own pace, with no time restraints.

Wife told me she wanted to look at a Toyota 4Runner after the funeral today. So, we went, we got a brochure, we test drove one. She LOVED it. More than the Subi Outback. She said she liked the fact that you sit up higher & it still has body on frame design. I priced the parts for the Corolla while i was there !!! :jawdrop: $13 each for the sway bar bushings only ! I got both sway bar bushings, the metal housings & 4 new bolts for $9.98, from RA.com. Also got 2 complete lower control arms for $36.98 each from RA.com, dealer wanted $156.00 each ! :jawdrop: So $350+ from the dealer, & 700+ for parts & labor, or $107.00+ shipped to my door & I/we do the work. :rockon:

He looked up the TRD Pro for us, it seemed dismal. He said only 12 between NY, NJ & PA. All had deposits on them except for 3. No choice on color, no choice on options, no dicker on price. If we order one, current times are 12 months for delivery & cement color only. So, maybe a reg TRD w/rear locker in our future ? Maybe a lift after it is paid off ?
