    So I'm heading to a wedding in Jamestown this weekend (from Rochester). I've been advised it's cool to bring my pistol, as there might be some dope ass shooting fun going on.

    I am a machinist/toolmaker by trade and want to make my own pistol from scratch. After a conversation with Mr. Sullivan at the Oneida County Pistol Office, I am to believe that I can not do so without going through a FFL dealer and or "manufacturer". He stated that all those who have presented a...

    I don't think this has been covered on the ammo bgc, if it has I haven't read enough. My question is the amish community, under the ammo bgc would be prohibited from buying ammo. I don't think they use photo ID's. I wonder if this would fall under an equel protection argument under the law. My...

    Hundreds rally in opposition of SAFE Act after one year in effect "Don't believe what you read in the papers. It was a split decision. If it wasn't a split decision, the governor and New York state would not have filed an appeal two hours after we did," King said. King, who said the...

    NY SAFE Act - Private Sale of ammo Legal - COMFIRMED - YouTube Now does this mean I can buy from a private individual over the internet and have it shipped as well? Surely the state can't tell me I can't buy from other people or have my family send me ammo? I'm allowed to own it. Sorry if...

    I keep seeing about this mr2, bullet button,spur grip, and this varmint hunters grip. Besides this ugly ass FRS stock and that other one that puts the stock below the buffer tube.

    An interesting legal question that occured to me a while ago. Suppose someone living in a city that has banned "assault weapons", say Albany, was required by the SAFE act to register such a weapon with the state police. Since by registering a weapon that person would be informing the police that...
