NJ Outdoor Ranges To Open

Starting this Friday, outdoor ranges in NJ will be open once again. Too bad I'm a member of an indoor range and who knows when those will be able to open.

Spare me the ongoing 2 hr televised press reports and announce “effective tomorrow blah,blah,blah businesses can reopen. But then, Murphy et al wont get their ongoing little power driven love fest.

Yep, Murphy refused to do it, even after after he announced opening the beaches this coming Friday. He changed his mind after the NJ NRA Affiliate filed an emergency injunction. The Judge told both sides to "work it out" before the actual hearing. Meaning WTH are you kidding Murphy? Beaches but not ranges!

Looking forward to shooting. I go to a members only outdoor range, have a lot of shooting to make up. Place is going to be crowded with a lot of people off from work, so I figured I'd wait a week after Friday to go. Can't wait.

I don’t see a good reason to wait until Friday for any activities or businesses. At this point, I think people get it. Covid19 isn’t gone and may recur to some degree.

Ive been able to shoot at my club whenever i want, but still think the indoor ranges should be allowed to get started too.

I feel for you too.
Our range is 10mi outside of town members only, outdoors, no covered firing line. It has been closed by cold snowy, windy weather, but not by order.

Have you seen all the restrictions on the NJ ranges? My son lives in NJ and BEFORE all this he always went to PA. to shoot because the range fees in NJ were just crazy and ammo prices, you had to buy theirs were high.

Couple of things...and I'm not here to defend anything NJ per se, except the sleepy little shore town i live in ;-)...And it is a Trump-Town to the core!

Have your son buy ammo on-line, no reason to waste time and money locally. I haven't bought ammo in a retail outlet since about 2012. If a range is forcing him to buy their ammo, find another range, most don't require such a thing.

Yes, I did see the NJ restrictions, the ranges are in the same restriction bucket as a bunch of other outdoor facilities. I'm waiting for my range to post their interpretation, because much of it is subject to interpretation.

My Outdoor range just posted their interpretation of the guidelins..Some highlights:

Wives and kids OK, but not "guests".
Social distancing mandatory.
No Club-Matches
The linear ranges where benches are aligned in a row, every other bench will be left open.
Benches and chairs must be covered with blankets. Washed at home for reuse.

I mostly shoot in the pistol pits which is a mini range to yourself and you can move in 2 dimension. So not much for me to do differently, other than cover the the shooting table. How is this for an idea, I just ordered 5 cheapo Shower Curtain liners from Amazon?...I'll just toss them in the garbage after my range session.

Really looking forward to it, really amazing how much it is missed after a while, it is sort of a mechanism to get centered in many ways...I'm mostly 45, but given a 3 month layoff, I'll do my first shoot with my 38sers and my one 9mm plastic fantastic with the new Q5-Match upper on it.

Effectively, they’re still closed. Murphy is trying to micro (mis) manage everything. Just declare them open for business and let the owners and the public figure it out. I think everybody ‘gets it’ now, they need to exercise some caution and discretion but dont need to be getting arrested, citationed for merely returning to normalcy. If you take away all the deaths from Murphy’s and Cuomos Executive Orders from rehab facilities, the numbers go significantly down. (Something they dont want to talk about). Indoor ranges have active exhaust systems which is similar to the negative pressure ICU rooms in a hospital. I can’t see a valid reason they cant re open with the outdoor ranges.
