That is the town, Gun For Hire just opened a new range there. Might still be well North of you though, it's just South of Paterson.

Not yet..I am about 2.5 hours away from there but people that have been there have loved it. The owner, Anthony Colandro, is one of the most outspoken 2A activists in the state and one hell of a nice guy and this range is the realization of his life's work.

Here's what I recommend.

Since the rifle's modular, double your

budget, spend it more gradually, get

better components one at a time, be

patient, and, once it's finished, you'll

have the rest of your

life to enjoy, rather than regret,

your new AR...
