  1. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    A lot of pro 2nd ammendment news/legislation has been coming out of Florida lately. "And if they want to shoot a fully automatic weapon, and have a class 3 license, technically they would not be in violation of anything," Sheriff Ramsay said. In 2011, backed by the National Rifle Association...

  3. The AR-15
    Does anyone know of an FFL within 30-45 minutes of Corning that will do stripped lower transfers? My usual LGS states that they won't do it, along with a couple others that I've talked to. I have 5 items that need to be transferred from out of state and would like to find a place that is...

    Hello Gentleman, New member and new to the AR platform here. I apologize in advance if this question has been covered in the past BUT I did search and I didn't find the type of results I was looking for. I am looking to join a club in the Rochester area and I was curious if there are any AR...

  6. Shooting Ranges
    Went out to Niagra Gun Range in the Buffalo area today and was disappointed with how I was treated. Was excited when I got there because I hadn't been in a gun shop since I left working at Cabela's a couple months ago. Walked in and there were a few people in line to use the range so I went...
  7. The AR-15
    Trying to get a lower receiver transferred but my normal FFL is on vacation. Been calling around with no luck, they all keep telling me it's against the law to transfer a lower. Seems they don't know the law because the lower was paid for back in December, way before the safe act was passed...

    Like anything else it can be intimidating walking into a gun store for the first time looking for advice and information on you first handgun purchase. I've been shopping for a couple of weeks and I've got lots of questions on the process. Along the way I have been to some shops that have been...

    A few of my buddies and I have been talking on going on kind of a ".22 camping trip" sometime this summer. Basically we want to just go on a wilderness camping trip that would be far away from most people that plinking with .22's wouldn't stir up any trouble. The Adirondack region sounded great...

    A certain acquaintance of mine works for a certain shipping company unloading cargo planes at the airport. A few weeks back a box fell out of a container, broke and spilled .223 rounds all over the tarmac. They were loosely packed and undeclared. This is just a friendly warning that shipping...

  12. General Firearms
    So I have seen this phenomenon on other websites like Reddit.com, where avid gun owners have invited and taken some people who are otherwise not gun friendly people out to the range, in hopes to at the very least educate them about guns. Has anyone here done this before? If so what were the...

  16. The AR-15
    Hey guys, I ordered an upper from Healy Arms this week, nothing but good things to say about them so far. Mark Healy (the owner I assume) took the time to actually learn the NY state laws and was very prompt in replying to my questions. Then even called me to verify a shipping date. He said...

    BEGIN RANT Went to Pioneer Bank the other day to have a bill of sale for a legal transfer noterized (long story). The gun was an ak47 and I needed the bos for the local police dept. The guy at the bank wanted to pass it by their legal dept. After 20 minutes he came back and said that due to all...
  18. Pistol Permits
    I came across this excerpt from a 7th Circuit case while doing some research today. A guy hands his out-of-state CCW license to an IL State Trooper . . . and is surprised when he is detained and searched: This account, as described by Lee, does not even hint at police misconduct. As soon as...

  20. General Firearms
    Fellow members, So here is the deal. The saiga 12 is a beautiful piece of machinery. The problem is that we have to choose between grip or 10 round magazines. The non-sense law is clear that if we keep the pistol grip we cannot go over 5 rounds in a detachable magazine. What I am doing is I am...
