Default Training

Looking for training in New Jersey or surrounding area. I live in Southern NJ; I am about 35 minutes from Philadelphia. I have found 2 already within a couple of hours. One being TRICON and the other MDTS. They both seem pretty reasonable price wise. Was wondering if anyone has any experience with either of these two places or know of anywhere else that might fit my criteria. I am new to CCW and am looking for the best training available for the buck. Thanks

In New Jersey, the police are known to ask motorists if there are " any weapons in the car ". The correct answer, IMHO, is " no ". I say you should never tell a police officer who stops your car that you are armed and never have the gun where a diligent officer could see it by shining his flashlight all around. I realize you are carrying legally but "out of sight-out of mind ".

Do you live in New Jersey? If not how do you know what the police ask motorists? That's a pretty bold statement telling someone to lie to a LEO in a state where just about all CCW applications get denied. Illegal posession of a firearm in a car is a felony, having a cop stumble upon it after being told none exists can get you killed. Unless you are coming from the range or hunting, can prove it and your firearm is unloaded and out of reach you better know a real good lawyer.

I like learning from Soldier of Fortune Magazine articles.
Then I hone my skills and tactics on Call of Duty.

Sorry but your original questions seems to have gotten lost. What type of training are you looking for, basic handgun safety, CCW qualification? Reason I ask is that NJ is a "may issue" state and a NJ resident CCW is virtually impossible to get unless you are retired LEO, politically connected or a Private Detective.

Most area ranges offer NRA approved training. Hague's in Thorofare, Bobs Little Sports Shop in Glassboro or Targetmaster in Chadds Ford Pa all offer basic, intermediate and advanced training. Many vendors also offer 1 day training for FL or AZ non-resident CCW. Again, it is useless in NJ but would allow you to legally carry in 29 other states I believe.

If you are South of Philly there is also a rather large facility in Atlantic County that offers a fairly broad range of training.

Welcome to Hague's Indoor Range

Targetmaster - firearm and self defense training, Delaware concealed cary permit training.

Ammunitions - Glassboro, New Jersey - Bob's Little Sport Shop & Indoor Pistol Range

Firearms Training Facility - Atlantic County Government

Jpyle, I am a NJ resident and have a Florida and Virginia CCW. I know I cannot carry in NJ and wouldn't dare to even try. This is a Gestapo State or as I like to say the Peoples Republic of New Jersey. Just biden my time before I move back to PA. I do spend a lot of time in PA hunting, camping and fishing. As far as training I am looking for CCW training awareness, situational. Something like this: http://www.mdtstraining.com/CPS_SERIES.pdf I am going to join a place called Pistol People in Bensalem, PA

And Jpyle remember: "Let's go Flyers and let's go Don Earle"

Gentlemen :
I was temporarily banned for supposedly advising people to lie to a police officer, but if there is no gun in your car, it would not be " lying " to answer " No ".

To clarify, I hereby advise everyone to always tell the truth to the police.

Nice comeback.

I do believe in the trunk under the spare tire is still "in the vehicle". Was not even regarding you own state laws, forget about any other state laws.

We take legal ownership and handling of firearms very seriously here. That includes transportation and possession. Not sure what you ment by "supposedly."
