  1. Downstate
    Hi. I am new here. I just submitted my app for the NYC residential permit. I already have a Florida CCW. Can I purchase a firearm in Fl and bring it back to NYC?

    I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere. It's not that I really care I don't mind taking day trips to find ammo in other states. Can you buy ammo online and ship to FFL?

    In about eight days I will be heading cross country enroute to AZ where I will be spending the winter. Should I come across a long gun that I like I thought perhaps I would purchase it. Actually I would like to purchase a hand gun as well but that is a whole different discussion. I see all...

    Hey guys, I have a driving trip planned to Knoxville, TN for work that I plan to extend into a vacation by continuing down to Texas to visit relatives and friends. On the way back up I want to make a detour over to Camp Perry to buy my first M1 Garand. I am a US citizen born and raised, have a...

    My buddy just asked me if there's anywhere he could shoot a handgun before getting his license. I know it's illegal in NY for a shop to let him shoot one. Anywhere in CT or PA maybe? He's interested in something I don't own unfortunately. Thanks for any info you have!
  7. Handguns
    I just received my letter to come pick up my permit after just under a 4 month wait (not too shabby) and I'm looking to get my first pistol this coming week. I live in steuben county where all permits are unrestricted, therefore I plan on carrying. On a bit of a budget and would like to come...

    There is a local story about a Cohoes School Principal purchasing some .22 ammo in the parking lot of the high school and some of the text notes that it is not against the law YET. Here is the text: Heslin said that, at first, his department believed Rajczak may have violated the SAFE Act, New...

    While browsing Armslist tonight, It Looks like Andy and the NYSP are really trolling to nail someone on purchasing an AW Several listings that are too great of a deal. 1st one was a Bushmaster ACR (flash hider, adj stock, 30rnd Magpul P mag) for $1470 2nd one was a FN Herstal Scar 17S...

    I completed an 80% lower back in July held off on buying parts as the prices were only going up. As I already have the "firearm" part of the ar15 before the ban, can I order the parts online? I basically need everything except a stripped lower (buffer, stock, lower parts kit, upper receiver...
  11. The AR-15
    What are the laws on purchasing a stripped lower from private sale, from out of NY State. Is it possible for a relative/friend to order a lower in another state and private sale to me, being done in person with no shipping. Or if they sell me their old lower or rifle, and just build a new...
  12. Rifles
    Greetings everyone, I have come again with a couple quick questions regarding the SKS rifle for ownership in NY... If I understand correctly, for the gun to be NY legal, it has to be all 100% original unmodified parts. This is so that it is considered a relic and not some kind of modernized...
  13. General Firearms
    I am one of the unfortunate ones who never really had the money in order in time to purchase an AR before all this went down:(. As of right now, I only own a couple of handguns - but with everything that is going on, and all it indicates, I am looking to get a couple of long guns while I still...
  14. Pistol Permits
    If I have a NYC premise permit and purchase authorization, can I have my online purchase sent to a FFL in Nassau County and bring it to 1PP? And will I have any issues at 1PP because the transfer took place outside the 5 boroughs? I ask because I had my purchase sent to a FFL in Queens and he...
  15. Pistol Permits
    Is this possible? If so, how do I do it legally? Thanks :)
  16. Pistol Permits
    Good evening everyone, It has been a very eventful week, and unfortunately a lot bad news. I have probably read every thread on here in regards to NYSAFE, and other threads similar to my question, but I thought I would state it out there just in case someone else had the same question. I...
  17. Rifles
    Hey guys, I'm thinking about purchasing a Mosin and I would definitely like to put a scope on it. Problem is, I know it's got some kick and I need a scope that can take a beating. Any recommendations?
  18. Handguns
    I have had a bersa ucp 45 for a couple years now, and last month while shooting it part of the rail broke off back by the hammer. Long story short bersa is replacing it with a brand new one. Since that has happened i have done some researching on the glock 30 4th gen and it has some amazing...

  20. The AR-15
    Hoping to find a rifle at the York, PA show this weekend, or Cabelas later next week. I've settled on the M&P 15, the price point being a major draw for me. The problems I see however, are its non compliance. Do I drop it with a smith to replace the flash suppressor with a pinned compensator and...
