  1. Pistol Permits
    Just looking for some advice here on who has the best/fair deals for purchasing a new pistol. I've been to Precision Armory and find that their gear runs pretty high above MSRP posted online. Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

  4. The AR-15
    Can you still buy everything to piece together an AR? My friend has a Stag Arms 2T which had it's mag release welded by a company and sold as a NY COMPLIANT rifle. Because it does not have a detachable mag, it is not considered an assault rifle. The restrictive device to make it legal must not...

    Say my friend wants to sell me some ammo. Do we need to do it in front of an FFL and do a background check? I know this is bull$it...
  9. The AR-15
    I want your opinions on if you would buy this straight pull upper receiver if it was available. It would be upper receiver only with machined bolt carrier and extended pull, or complete upper with blocked gas port. Would not be cheap. $450-600 for just receiver/BC and a grand plus for a...
  10. Handguns
    I contacted a gunsmith about the problems I've been having with the 1911, and he said to try a new slide stop and plunger tube assembly before sending the gun in to him. Where is the best place to find these, and instructions on replacing these parts?

    So I went to go pick up a stripped lower, and saw this, just had to add her to the collection. Took about 6 hours to get most of the cosmo off. This thing was gross!
  13. Off-Topic
    So the past few months my wireless router has been driving me nuts. My wireless cycles on and off, my devices drop the router then need to reaquire it, watching things on NetFlix is impossible. So, I have called time Warner and they reinitialized my services, resent signal, multiple times a day...

  15. Ammunition and Reloading
    Thought we should start a thread on good places to buy ammo in pa near the ny border now that we are kind of f'd here. Feel free to tell me if this idea sucks.
  16. Pistol Permits
    Is this standard practice or was my spidey sense right when it said the clerk at Walmart was scrutinizing my permit just a little too closely (like he was trying to memorize my address ??). The little teenage punk told me they have to check. There was just something about the way he was...

    I heard a rumor that when the State Police get the background checks for ammunition purchases going there will be a $20 surcharge for ach box of ammunition. While I tend to disbelieve things like this, we are in New York State, and I put nothing past Cuomo. Does anyone here know the truth about...

  19. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I was in PA today to visit some friends. I brought up the idea to go to a LGS to see if I could pick up a lower. When we got to the store (it was glorious, ARs, M1 Carbines, and a C93) I asked if they had a lower, which they did. Knowing all about the BS NY has, I asked if they would be...

    I got an email from AIM surplus that had stripped AR lowers...and they won't ship to NY! Nothing at all illegal about a stripped lower. This paranoia is getting out of control.
