  1. Off-Topic
    Curious how much the price was in local stores(LGS, Walmart, Dicks, Gander, etc) and the best deals online were? Best gunshow prices were? Per box or Per 500 or Per 1000 Whatever it was that you remember or purchased. What was the I have to have it right now price, and the normal price...

    Over the summer my wife's family held their annual family reunion at Sprague Brook park (in rural Erie County). As on many country roads, the road out there was dotted with SCOPE Repeal signs. I smiled every time we passed one. The reunion was fun. I chatted with my wife's uncle about his...
  3. Off-Topic
    I dont think it has anything to do with empathy. Probably more to do with Actors and Actresses opening their mouths about politics and turning off the people that actually want to go see movies for entertainment. I really don't care what a person who pretends for a living has to say about...

    Nojay, King launch new voter-registration effort - Politics on the Hudson I have a friend who is directly involved in this, the NRA are really supporting this financially, they have some really big name artists they are trying to finalize for this concert. I hope to see you guys there.
  5. Firearms in the News
    Here we go again. The second set of wild shootings in just one weekend in NYC. As I suggested in my last thread, they should BAN 90 degree days immediately. BloomTURD should form "Mayors Against Summer" and address this right away. Cops are fired upon and three people are shot in East Flatbush...
  6. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I've attended the Albany and Syracuse protests and spoken to many pro-gun folks and many have said that these protests could be organized a little differently..... We need to find a large farm in the middle of the state. Invite Ted Nugent and any other pro-gun musicians to jam. Get the NRA...

  8. Handguns
    I'm thinking about the fast approaching summer. I need a pistol to carry with shorts, you know, summer wear. I looked at the Bersa Thunder 380 and the Walther PPK/S. Both are a good fit with the pinky extension. Anyone have any pro's / con's on the pistols? Any info will be helpful. Bersa...
  9. Training
    After reading Pathfinders comments on the Magpul Dynamics thread, it got me thinking. Are there any pistol/shotgun/rifle classes this summer? Would any of the trainers on this forum ever offer a training class/classes for NYF members--like a group rate or something? I have never been to one...

  11. Handguns
    So at the end of July I took a little trip out west and took a start to finish Gun Engraving Class. It was a blast. I have been engraving for a while now, but needed that extra push to get going on a gun. This is the fruits of my labor. Not the Best gun in the world, but it was nice for a first...

    So, I spent the last week down at US Training Center (formerly Blackwater) with some friends of mine doing some real cool, go fast, fun as you can get, training. This was our second trip there and it was even better than the first! Hot weather (100-ish) and lots of full day training. Great...

    What's everyone reading this summer? I just finished Balance of Power by James Huston. A multi-national incident pits the Speaker of the House against the President. A conflict with a timely connection to our current events. A unique interpretation of the constitution, and a heavy navy...
  15. Carry/Conceal
    Hey Guys, This is coming up because I have started to carry a lot more lately as I am finally comfortable with carrying one in the chamber and drawing from concealment. In the winter months its not a big deal because I simply throw on any iwb holster, or even owb and a sweatshirt or jacket...
