  1. Handguns
    I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the Aim Surplus LEO Trade-In Glocks. They seem to come at a decent price and I would like to acquire a quality handgun for home defense/concealed carry without paying the price tag for a new one. I'm primarily looking at the Gen 4 G22's or G23's...

    I just wanted to end the year of 2013 by thanking all of you for your efforts to enforce the laws of our state, and honor your oaths while doing so. We all know its a thankless job, and many times you are lumped together with the bad examples that make their way onto youtube, but I truly...

    I'm inclined to use Colonie's Chief, but since the permit process started in Colonie and then went to Albany, I am unsure.

    Look at this. An arrest for having ten rounds in a magazine during a normal traffic stop. Thanks Gestapo law enforcement. Thanks for standing with the citizens. To those that continue to say law enforcement supports us, just stop already. They are OUR ENEMY! The only other violation of law...

    Traveling back to NY from visiting my gf's sister and Im at the end of a line of traffic when an officer get behind me, follows me for a bit and then turns his lights on. He claims I was doing 75 in a 55 and writes me a ticket. Im not really so much ticked off by the ticked even though I know...

    I want to apply for my C&R and am trying to figure out who my local Chief law enforcement officer would be. Is it the Monroe county sheriff?

    Funny story from Saturday. My wife was driving my Jeep this past Saturday and unfortunately witnessed a younger kid get hit by a car. He was fine, just a couple bumps and bruises. Anyways, my wife is waiting there to give the sheriff a statement and as soon as he made it to the door he said...

    I'm not posting this b/c I disagree; in fact, I think it's good idea. I just find it interesting that this was quietly passed and signed into law by some of the same people who said Wayne LaPierre was a nut for suggesting increasing security in schools by hiring retired military and LEO. Here's...

    first off, I know, I know. For those of you that have read many of my prior posts, I'm not a fan of LEO...or retired for that matter. However, I'm down for the weekend in the free state of Virginia (where I may be moving to soon). Went into the local gun store with my cousin to look at some...

    Something I have been wondering about lately and I wonder if anyone here can share an informed opinion on. In NYS members of local Fire Departments that have gone through the training as a "Fire Police" and are a member of the Departments Fire Police unit are sworn in by the County Sheriff as...

    I got pulled over earlier today about a mile from my house. I wasn't speeding I hadn't even gotten up to the speed limit when the cop passed me. I saw that he hit his brakes and I just kept going thinking maybe he was just slowing down, see him come back towards my direction so I pull off to...

    They were off duty (4 of them). Not once did they ask me how many rounds were in my gun. Not once did they ask my daughter or me if her AR was registered. What they did do was let us check out there MP5, Let my daughter shoot there AR 10, and ask me if I'd be interested in being a...

    PREFACE: I understand that there is a metric ****-ton of LEO's that are on our side and I suspect that doing the training is innocuous for many and they could be going with the flow because it's not affecting anyone "right now". I also acknowledge that there are some that will enforce this...

    I am tired of hearing some of the misconceptions of the SAFE act in regards to active law enforcement (LEO's) 1. Active LEO's are still exempt from hi-cap magazines (PL 265.03) under PL 265.20 in they were made after 1994 (post-ban). Pre ban hi-cap Magazines (made before 1994) are illegal...

    From McLaughlin's facbook page yesterday; Some provisions of the unSAFE Act go into effect today. Among them: Pg. 21 of the bill, amends penal law by adding a new section 265.01 which indicates that as of today, no person (and that includes law enforcement) can enter school buildings or grounds...
