    Yesterday me and my two sons took the RPD Basic Defensive Handgun Course at Rochester Brooks gun range. This is the second course I have taken with RPD, they are awesome. The instructors are VERY serious about what they are teaching, but unlike some folks in the gun teaching business don't take...
  6. Pistol Permits
    I realize the 62 separate NY countys may / and do have different requirements as to what instruction is required. In a county that requires the NRA Basic Pistol course as a pre-requisite to licensing, can the county pistol permit office specify 'who' specifically, is allowed to teach the...
  7. Pistol Permits
    I'm considering going through the process of getting a permit in Ulster, where I have now lived for about 10 years. I have already taken the free basic pistol safety class held by the FSCUC, which is apparently required by the judges. I have a clean record so I have that much going for me...

    Anyone have any links for NRA Basic Pistol course either on Long Island or up in the Saratoga, Lake George area. Took a basic safety class when I got my NYS CC Permit, but it does not satisfy other state requirements for this training. Thanks
  9. Pistol Permits
    Hey guys, I noticed my gun club is hosting an NRA Basic Pistol Instructor course this month, I live in Saratoga County, which as many of you know, does not let many people carry unrestricted. The only reason for me taking the course would be to have my premit restrictions lifted. Teaching...

    I noted that comments indicating that a NRA Basic Pistol Course is all that is required for a Florida Permit. Someone else posted this , I agreed, now both deleted. It is correct, that a Basic Handgun course and a set of prints you can get at any PD is all that is needed for Florida, and...
  12. Shotguns
    With the price of ammo being what it is, I am trying too find a way to cut down the cost of shooting my slug gun. I mentioned in another thread about sighintg in using premium ammo. this got very expensive. Has anyone grouped well using foster type slugs from their rifled barrell slug...
  13. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I recently got a pistol (S&W M&P 45 Compact). I was just wondering if this community could enlighten me on basic handgun laws, as most of the things I find online refer to long guns. Anything I find about handguns in NY seem to contradictory. I think I know some basics, but just want to double...

    It appears as if the only NRA training in CNY is for pistols. Where can one go to learn about field stripping, modifying, and mechanics of firearms? Thank you. NRAInstructors.org - Portal for NRA certified Instructors, NRA Education and Training

    My mom called me this morning to let me know that my grandparents on her side of the family are moving to Florida for good. Because of this, they are giving all their pistols to family members who have licenses (she has an unrestricted). There is one catch, because it's been so long since my...
