  3. Pistol Permits
    I just picked up my Sig P938 from the gun shop and the employee told me with the SAFE Act the law had been amended and now you can be arrested and lose ALL firearms if you're caught carrying outside your restrictions. I looked up the laws and was able to find that you do, indeed, lose all...

    All - I see many people write HIPPA because of the way it is pronounced. It is actually HIPAA. Health Insurance Portability and Accountablility Act. It does us no favors when we comment on things and incorrectly write/type the wrong acronym. Makes us look foolish and hard to take seriously. Ill...

    I am having a debate with my brother in law about what the rules are. I believe that folding stocks on a ruger 10/22 would make it illegal. I also believe that a collapsible stock that is no pinned down to one size is also illegal. He is saying that both of these items do not make illegal...

    Would you guys read please read this for me, I am not seeing the part exempts the tubular magazines of shotguns from not being included. I see that it spells out .22 cal, but nothing else. I have read it enough to cause confusion, I hope I am missing it or miss understanding it. * 23...

    Can someone more knowledgeable enlighten me on what organization will be actually doing the "Assault Weapon" registrations? I thought Mr Cuomo said it will be performed by the NYS Police. I heard a nasty rumor that it is being pushed off onto our already WAY overworked County Clerks, with no...

  14. The AR-15
    Hi all, Sorry for asking what I'm sure has been asked time and time again, but I just want to make sure I'm 5x5 here. Just put together an A1 clone from a post ban lower and a late 603 upper I found at work. I'm having my vintage 3 prong pinned and welded on, the only thing I have left is to...
  15. The AR-15
    So, not so muck up the F/S thread about the "pre ban" upper, but I'm confused about the post (and this isn't meant to hate on the seller, I'm just looking for clarification from a legal stand point). I thought that the defining piece of a pre ban AR was the lower -- Once you had a...

    My buddy is a firefighter, he can get the Glock discount. On another forum there was a discussion about LEO/EMT/FIRE hooking up friends with the discount was a straw purchase. They claimed that if the person bought the pistol and then "sold" it to you, that was a straw purchase. My argument...

    I'm planning on buying a new Sabre Defense upper for my AR15 and want to make sure it will be NY compliant. It's my understanding that Flash hiders on post ban uppers are illegal but that Muzzle breaks or compensators are legal. Am I correct in my assumption My second question, is it legal in...
