    I live in Orange County and have a NYS ccw unrestricted license. There are 2 pistols I own located in my families home in NJ that I inherited many, many years ago (there is no paperwork for either). Can I amend my NYS license and then just bring them to NY? What is the proper way(s) to do this...

    If you look at today's miserable decison in the federal NYSPRA case, on page 6, the judge states that pistols are only assault weapons if they have 2 prohibited features. NYSP FAQ says one feature. My googling has given me versions of the penal law that say one and versions that say two. Does...
  6. Pistol Permits
    I have searched but have not found a clear answer. Hypothetically, if I move back to NY with pistols in my possession that I legally purchased in another state, and I do not yet have an NY pistol permit, can I sell them to a NY dealer? I am not even allowed to posses my own guns in NY, what...

    I recently got into bullseye shooting and am getting ready to buy a .22 target pistol. For those of you not familiar with bullseye, most of the best pistols have magazines mounted in front of the trigger. I know the un-safe act states that a pistol with magazine mounted outside of the pistol...

    "Somethings belong together. Paired pistol caliber carbines and matching pistols are one of them. I have long believed that a lot of the things that pistol caliber carbineare truly worth knowing were originated in the American West. This runs from animal husbandry to other homesteading skills...

    Last night was a fun evening. I went to pick up my 22LR Walther "Colt" 1911 at my FFL. I'd always intended that pistol to be used as a place holder in the FFL's safe while my Westchester permit application meandered its way through a tortuous 9 months. It was also intended to be used as a...

    Okay Guys, I am still new here. I have been a bit thread happy considering my short stay, so, sorry again; here comes another. I have effectively narrowed the choice of my first pistol down to the following three .45 caliber pistols. The Beretta PX4, the Sig Sauer P227 Nitron and the Heckler...

    Always liked the Mares Leg, wanted one in .357, curious are they legal in NYS? With the SAFE act there's a clause on pistols and weight, not sure if the Mares Leg would be an issue. Thanks in advance :)

    What if you welded or pinned a mag in place on an AR pistol or AK pistol.. Would be NYS legal right? cant take a detachable mag... So features including being over 50oz don't matter correct?

    I have a "preban" (pre 2013) 80% lower I have been working and I after reading the law I have determined I would like to finish it as a pistol lower. Does anyone know how one would do the paperwork to register it as a pistol? I know I need to put on a serial number and manufacturer info on it...

    I know this post is going to get blown up by the Glock fanboys an I'm not saying that Glock's arent excellent guns. That being said the lack of other safeties are what made my decision on getting a Springfield XD Lodi Police Officer Shot When Child Pulled Trigger On His Gun At Reading Event...

    I am a pistol permit holder in livingston county. My father who lives in Ohio would like to give me two pistols back which I left with him when I moved to NY state a few years ago. May I simply take possession of the pistols and add them to my permit at the clerks office?

    Hey guys this is my first post here. Sorry if this seems like a crazy/dumb question. I don't live in NY but my wife's grandma does. She's looking at purchasing a pistol and told me that she hasn't been in a shop to look yet because she doesn't have her pistol permit and they (FFL) won't let her...
