    So I made a first time Purchase from Thompson Cigar Company and bought 5 singles for my dad for Christmas. I bought 5 to qualify for this deal to get a free lighter and TCC perfect cigar cutter. Here is link Single Cigars - Buy Single Cigars Online - Thompson Cigar Here is link to cigar cutter...

    So since I turned part of the basement into a BB gun/Air Soft range I thought I would make and print my own targets. While the usual circles and numbers are great I wanted something a bit better. Then I remembered this logo I drew up a while back. Add a little Photoshop magic and presto...
  3. Shotguns
    Dummy rounds are expensive so I took some spent rio royals and cut them just about at where the crimp is. I filled them with some small wood screws to give them weight and topped them off with epoxy. When it was dry I hit them with an orbital sander and tapered the edges. Then used a red sharpie...

    I recieved my pistol permit back in jan, and since then I've tried shooting each weekend I spend up at my cabin where I built a 100yard range. For example saturday I ran through 250 rounds of 45 and by the end of that I could feel quite fatigued and while me and my buddy were having fun just...

    Does anyone know the closest State land(Binghamton area) that I can target practice. My plan was to go to Oakley Corners this weekend, but I found that it's target shooting is prohibited. My apologies if this was already covered. Thanks

    Hello, I am new here and fairly new to NY. I moved from NJ where we had state land that had "open" ranges to practice at. I am getting back into hunting and need a place to do some practicing. Anyone know of any area near Rochester that I can target practice? I am open to joining a club, but...

    So I have a Kel-Tec Sub2000 and it takes Beretta 96 mags. I have like 8 mags. I also have 5 of the 22LR Beretta Practice mags. The issue is that I'm waiting for the 22LR kits to come back in stock. From Beretta...if I'm fast enough, I can get them for $400 shipped. The Beretta 96 itself, in...

    Hey guys/gals, My girlfriend has gotten this recent interest in firearms and I want to take her out to shoot and teach her the functions and safety of firearms.. I don't want to join a gun club because I honestly don't have a lot of money to blow away. I was wondering if there is a place where...

    I live near Clifton Park, NY and have been looking for a club to join in the capital region for a while now with no luck. It seems like the only clubs that are accepting new members are at least a 45 min -1 hour drive. Anyone with a lot of land looking for an occasional shooting partner? I...

    You want to be ready to protect yourself, your family or perhaps someone else? How do you go about becoming ready to do this? Do you just take a class? Does it take a lifetime of martial arts or do you simply read the latest gun magazine or buy a DVD? A lot of people want to learn how to protect...
  15. Shooting Ranges
    Hey everybody. I live on Long Island and was wondering if anyone on here knows of ranges in New York where you can shoot over two hundred yards. I'd even travel to PA if it was necessary, but I've got to find something where I can put my longer reach guns (and myself even) to to test. What's the...
  16. Training
    I'm finally finding the time to get some (fun!) range time in at GCL, and I've noticed a couple of trends that I wouldn't have expected: 1) I was expecting that my patterns would be best when I start out (with my first few magazines) since I'm "fresh", and then the patterns would get a little...

    There is a range about 40 minutes from where I live, and I ALWAYS see border patrol agents there. I usually go up every two weeks, and I have even gone up on different days, and I keep bumping into them. I'll say this, those guys sure love to shoot. :)
  18. Training
    Just wondering how you folks dry fire practice. What specifically do you work on and how do you do it? I just received my permit and besides joining a range, would like to practice at home to become more proficient.

    Long story short, last week I went to a local music shop in Rochester to get my Fender Mustang fixed up. I left it overnight for the guitar tech to look at, and the next day the manager said it was about $175 worth of work that needed to be done. Being that I'm fairly broke I was pretty...
