    I couldn't find an answer to this question by searching the forum -- although the issue may well have come up. Has anyone actually submitted a registration form for a gun they built using a self-made receiver (i.e. an 80% receiver you finished yourself)? I have a couple I need to register...
  2. The AR-15
    Why modify your Ar-15 ? Why not just register it ? Those with handgun permits have to register their pistols and revolvers anyway. Most people who obtained a firearm in the last 20 years was subject to the Brady Law. That being said there is a record of your purchase anyway in a FBI database. If...

    Connecticut residents waited in long lines on Thursday to register their firearms and high-capacity magazines before the state's new gun laws go into effect on Jan. 1, 2014. WFSB-TV reports that a "long-line of people" stood outside the Public Safety Building in Middletown, Conn., all day to...

    Once my wife gets a pistol permit, we'll want our pistols registered on both of our permits. How do we do that? The Westchester county amendment form ( 1 Amendment Form.pdf) lists the following possible transactions: Acquired Disposed Moved...

    If I may ask please, I want to make sure about something. I was told that all New York residents have to register their guns by April 15 of 2014. I own three Saiga rifles, and calibers 223, 7.62, and 308. I also own a shotgun that has been modified with a foldable stock, and a light, and a...

    Here is some information that you may not know. Those few people who register their "assault rifles" will be watched by NYS. The more of these rifles that a person registers, the higher they are on the watch list. The higher they are on the watch list, the more NYS watches those people and...

    Well, after searching around here and reading the NYS FAQ, I am still lost. I have some homemade lowers/rifles (made from 80%ers) from a few years back and don't know whether I need to register them under the SAFE act. From what I understand, homemade rifles must comply with the laws at time of...

    Do not bring your weapons to be registered.....wait it out and see how the cards fall. This is Coumo's little plan to take them away. The State Police, whom I do respect as they have a tough job, made tougher as most do not agree with this law, have been directed to keep them for inspection and...
