I must say it's refreshing to not be a felon-not-yet-caught on a daily basis. In NJ it was always a possibility that a trip to the range would end up as a trip to prison. It happened to me once and it took two years to sort out (in my favor, but at the cost of some $20K in legal bills: NJ said that assembling an AR-15 from a receiver legally bought at a NJ FFL was "manufacturing a firearm" under NJ law... so... into jail I went). Lesson learned is to have a video camera in the rear view mirror of your car, to know your 4th amendment rights COLD, to not be afraid to assert them, and to always video-record interactions with "law enforcement", which in NJ is an entire protected class of criminals. But I digress. Let's just say that the NJSP are not unrelated to the Gestapo and that I do not now and never will again trust or respect "law enforcement" officers to the day I die. They taught me that lesson fair and square. If you're a LEO reading this, mark my words: You can train someone like me to regard you with utter contempt and disgust for the rest of that persons life, and your worst enemy if you are a constitution-respecting good guy LEO is your "brother officers" who cause guys like me to need to paint you all with the same brush for our own self protection, OK, I'm done ranting now.... Can you tell I REALLY hate NJ? In Illinois, as soon as the CCW is sorted out, it'll be a pretty fair place to own guns. If you want full auto, get a storage locker and a trust east of you a piece and go enjoy. If I had to do it all over again in NJ, I would have done that decades ago with a trust and storage in PA. Heck, when the NJ assault rifle ban came out I moved my collection to PA and paid a LGS to keep my safe in the back room there and never worried about it.
