  1. The AR-15
    Hello everyone! It has been a long while since I have posted here, I miss you guys. I was so happy when I received my NYC pistol permit within three short months of filing... I just started shooting... and shooting... and sort of forgot about good ol' New York Firearms. I have been playing with...

    For over 20 years now, my wife and I have spent our summer vacation car camping at Roger's Rock on Lake George. It has been one of our favorite places in the world to relax. The problem is,my vacation falls on the week of July 4, and the past few years, Roger's Rock has become overrun with very...

  4. DIY Projects and Builds
    Ok so I have an Ishapore Enfield, nice piece, all matching numbers right down to the mag. For the last couple of weeks I've been fiddling with the magazine because it always seemed to have issue when feeding a round out of the right side (the side of the follower that DOES NOT have the bullet...
  5. Rifles
    I had my heart set on a black/stainless model, but I found a black synthetic/matte blue model at a price so low I couldn't pass it up. Now I'm starting to research my scope options. Little background, first: I currently only have (1) scoped rifle, a Marlin 60. I own a pre-ban Mini which I...
  6. Handguns
    I'm looking to purchase the Springfield XDM in 9mm, but it only comes with 19 round mags. Anyone know of an FFL that will let you permanently modify the mags at their place so you can take the gun home? There are mag blocks out there and I have no problem epoxying or plastic welding the block...
  7. Handguns
    So I would like a revolver... I thought a .40 .. longer barrel since it will not be for carrying, and would like double action. I did ALMOST buy a Ruger Blackhawk (which comes with 2 cylinders- 9mm and .357) but it's single action. I am really not interested in something that will kick so much...
  8. Rifles
    Any suggestions on a rifle for home defense. Something mobile. ideally cost efficient. Is a home defense rifle a better option than a home defense shotgun? Thank you to everyone that contributes.
  9. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    I am new to bow hunting this year, and thinking about buying a laser range finder. Got a very nice bow from a member on here and haven't put it down since March. I have been practicing judging distances by eye every trip to the range by using the size of a target in my sight to make an educated...
  10. Shotguns
    So I bought a mossberg 500 off a friend cheap last summer. Put on a new buttstock with pistol grip, a short barrel and a mesa tactical shell holder. The mesa tactical rail has a channel so you can use the front sight, but it sits to high to use the little bead sight. I used to put the long...
  11. Rifles
    Ruger mini 14 ranch stainless steel. This is the first rifle I've ever owned and not knowing much about scopes I'd thought I would get some advice. Looking to shoot between 50 - 200 yards.
  12. General Firearms
    So I keep seeing a lot of people having discussions about first aid/trauma kits. I agree 100% that it makes sense to have these kits not only in our range bags, but our homes & vehicles. You never know when an accident/situation is going to happen. The problem is that I have absolutely no...
  13. Off-Topic
    With the ever increasing rise of gestapo-like police actions, I've been considering purchasing a small video camera to have available at a given notice, such as a traffic stop. The ability to document incidents of abuse seems to be a prudent course of action short of resistance armed or not...
  14. Handguns
    My wife and I will be purchasing our first pistol. I believe a 9mm may best serve our purpose of self defense. We considered a 45, but I am not sure if the recoil will be ok for my wife. I was keyboard researching this and I realize that I would want to actually fire one of these before...
  15. General Firearms
    Hi All: I'll be heading up to the Inlet/Moose River Plains area next month for a vacation. I'd like to bring along the .22 for some plinking on the state lands up there. Any suggestions for specific places to go? ( Old sand pits, etc. ) Preferably away from the established camping...
  16. The AR-15
    Hi all, I'm going to be flying to Colorado soon to visit family. I wanted to bring a rifle with me and thought it would be easy enough to put it in a locked case and take it on the plane with me. Then I thought of mailing it. As I understand it, I can send it via USPS and address it to...

    I have 150cc go-kart, a 2006 Twister Hammerhead to be exact. I got it out of storage for the summer and it won't stay running. It starts up fine and for the first five seconds, it seems like it's running fine, but then it just cuts out. No matter how many times I start it, it is the same result...
  18. Handguns
    Hey all I am looking for a .44 mag, any suggestions ? I looked thru previous threads and couldn't find a .44 mag one. I have a ruger super redhawk and I like it for hunting but it weighs as much as a rifle. I am looking for something I can shoot .44 special puppy...
  19. Off-Topic
    My son will be making his first pinewood derby for scouts, and we could use some tips. Anyone out there done this recently? Unlike some of the other parents in our group, I want him to make it, so any additional suggestions for a young kid would be great (he's 6).
  20. Shotguns
    Hey all, First off, this gun is used primarily for home defense. I just ordered a new front sight as the old one fell off in the woods... and am giving serious thought to ordering the Surefire 618LM weapon light. SureFire 618LM LED WeaponLight for Remington 870 Shotgun Does anybody have...
