  2. Handguns
    Got my permit yesterday!! Now looking to buy. Originally was thinking a .22lr to shoot a lot and get a .40 for carry pistol. I have shot 9mm before. I am not afraid to shoot bigger. My question is with the ammo shortage should i just skip the .22 and get a .40. Funds will limit me to one...
  3. Pistol Permits
    12+ years ago, a disorderly conduct misdemeanor charge was given to John Doe for being part of a street fight outside a bar during college days (John didn't participate, he was just there with the people who were fighting - everyone got in trouble). John plead guilty, paid a very small fine...
  4. Pistol Permits
    So here's my situation. I'm in the market for my first pistol and deciding when to buy seems harder then what to buy. I currently live in VA where I can walk into a gun shop and walk out with a pistol after a quick background check. Wish it was that easy in NY. My wife and I plan on moving...
  5. Pistol Permits
    Can anyone please give me some guidance? After 14 months I was just denied for my pistol permit in Dutchess County. The reason was because I forgot to list an arrest 24 years ago. A DEC officer (the infamous Terrance Revella) saw a police T-baton (that I was getting trained on using in martial...

    I am looking to load some target rounds to shoot out of my carry gun a Sig Sauer 4.2 inch barrel Model C3. It has an aluminum frame so I do not want to slam it to hard. I am using a Federal Low Recoil 185 grain bullets for SD .They are hydra-shoc JHP. The 185 grain Berry bullet shoots the same...

    I'm looking for advise on carrying my full size 1911. I typically carry in a IWB type holster. With the 1911 should I consider a different holster with thumb break? Any recommendation or advise?

  10. Handguns
    I have been looking at the GSG (ATI) 1911-.22 LR. for my next purchase. Does anyone own one of these? If so how do you like it ? I have also looked at the Chiappa 1911-.22. Any advise would be appreciated. I have found a great deal at Bud's Gun Shop. They have the GSG for $316.00 with no tax and...
  11. Ammunition and Reloading
    Is Star-Line brass as good as other brand names? Is the Nickle Plated any better? I have been having crimp problems and the one guy at Dillon told me to set the die to .469 inches. I knew it was too tight. I only loaded 10 of them and three of them cracked. The others that I am crimping at...

I don't want a revolver or a target pistol but want something that can protect my family and fun to shot at...
  13. Handguns
    So, I just recently learned that the Glock LE purchase program is now open for all first responders (Firefighters, EMT's, etc). So a new Glock is in my future. I am, however, having trouble deciding. I am in the market for a baby glock, either a 26 or 27. I have a few question that I hope...
  14. Handguns
    It may be a simple question but honestly i know very little. Basically all I know is you buy it, take the paperwork to have the pistol added to your permit and then go back to pick it up. Are you allowed to buy ammo without having the pistol on your permit? How do they update the permit(how...
