  1. Accessories and Gear
    I've been looking around for a good bore cleaner that will get copper and all the other junk out of the barrels. I was contemplating trying Hoppe's Copper Terminator when I stumbled on someone mentioning 'Wipe Out,' a foaming bore cleaner. Several reviews I've seen seem to give rave reviews...
  2. Preparedness
    Hey all! Woke up at 7:20 Saturday AM to find out we had no power. My lady, in her sleepy stupor, mentioned she noticed around 4:30, but somehow it didn't register to her that this might be a problem. My first thought was, "the Sump Pump!!!". So I sat up, reached in the night stand...
  3. Training
    Hey I'm in Middletown and would like to know of any business in the area that offer classes to train up on pistol. I'm mostly experienced with rifles and want to become surgical with my new Beretta Px4 Storm (.40 cal). So far I'm hitting dead center but a little low at the range (10 yards). No...
  4. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    So I went to my LGS today to ask about selling a pistol to another permit holder in my county and was told he only charges a cool $50! Am I missing something here? I recall NY's website clearly says that store can only charge $10 to do so. "A: No, dealers in New York are not required to...

    So I went to Walmart ammo counter...and asked for some .45 they had there. The guy asked for my pistol permit...so I said...but I'm using it in a rifle...a Thompson...he said he has to see my permit....store policy. So then I said...ok then can I see that box of .410 slugs. He said OK...you...
  6. Carry/Conceal
    Been seeing these advertised ALOT lately and figured I would give it a try. I held off as I thought it was a bit spendy at $40 but finally gave in. With the seven rd limit I frequently have another mag floating around in my support side pocket but realized it might be difficult to get out...

    So I was working in White Plains today, we went into Harrison to grab some lunch. pulling up to the deli there's a Harrison cop sitting outside parked kinda in the road, but pulled up to a motorcycle. We hopped out start to walk to the door, the cop was now outside his cruiser with his ticket...
  8. Carry/Conceal
    So I wanted to purchase a handgun in NY. In NY state you are not allowed to touch a handgun let alone purchase or own with a conceal pistol license ( pistol permit). The issue is NY does not usually issue a conceal carry permit, but a restricted permit. Not noly that but they require you to...

    I don't even know where to begin. I went to trade in my Prius in order to lease a Corolla. We agreed on 8500 on my trade in and 20300 on the corolla. 1. They refused to give me back my equity in cash. They tried to force me to put it into the lease. 2. I never leased before and asked for full...

    This is unrelated to the other thread about his proposals, so please don't "double post" flame me... Just wanted to get it out there quick that I was in Buffalo putting in an application or two and I got to experience the effects of his trip. First, I loooooved being caught in gridlock traffic...
  12. Rifles
    I have decide to go more high end on my rifle scope. Currently I am using a 4×12×40mm Leupold Vx-r. It is an excellent scope but I will definitely need more magnification since I want to start shooting way more than 100 yards... I have been reading about scopes for the past week or so and I see...
  13. Off-Topic
    The new wolf cubs in my son's troop decided they wanted to go to a camp-out at Staten Island Yankees Stadium. The whole family was invited, so I decided to drive back from PA so we could go. It was a pain to get there, then there's no parking where we were told to park. We get to the game...
  14. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    From the constant negative press coverage one would think that gun ownership laws were being restricted nationwide. This is certainly the case in New York thanks to our idiotic and/or cowardly politicians. However, there has been a positive trend nationwide. The story linked below has a...
  15. Shotguns
    I took this bad boy (the 12 gauge) out to the range for the first time the other day. I shot a couple rounds of 00 buck, then several target loads (#8). The way some folks talk about this, I was expecting it to kick like a mule. I actually feel like my .30-30 has a sharper kick than the shotgun...
  16. Handguns
    Does anyone have experience with GunVault products? I am looking for a small pistol vault that will fit in my night stand and offers quick access. It must be locked up to be child safe. Unfortunately, my drawer size restricts me to the MicroVault MV 500 key combination entry for $160 or the...

  19. Rimfire Handguns and Rifles
    OK, I original put a similar tread out for advice on the Buckmark, unfortunately I cant find a Buckmark Pro Target anywhere and when I did it wasnt anywhere near my budget so now I have picked out a High Standard Supermatic (1974) at a fair price. Decided I'd put it out there for discussion to...
