    Quick question, mostly for the members in the WNY area. How many shop often at Gander in Tonanwanda. Firearms area that is.
  2. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    recently took a trip out this way and was disappointed to find "No Hunting" signs every where? I don't understand, the DEC website states this is hunting land, but every corner of this land (both of em) have either no hunting signs or no waterfowl hunting signs. what frustrates me even more is...

  5. Firearms in the News
    On all the news channels here in the 716. Appears some guy set his house on fire and they heard gunfire. Police told all residents within 1/4 mile of the incident to shelter in place and hide in their basements. Hide in their basements? Really? Let that sink in for a minute. Hide in your...

    Hello all, Been thinking of joining a sporting club local to Lockport, Niagara county. I've been thinking either the Tonawanda Sportsman Club, or North Forest Rod and Gun. Anyone have any experience with either of these? Thanks for any and all information. Charles H.

  8. Firearms in the News
    Whoops. Felony reckless endangerment charges pending against this guy, who used to work for the the Erie County Sheriff's Office. I've shot different common household structural materials using regular target (ball) ammo and hollow points. Hollow points don't penetrate wall studs nearly as well...
  9. Ammunition and Reloading
    Winchester 20 rounds-12.27 a little pricey for wal-mart but they have a bunch for anyone who needs it.
  10. General Firearms
    They have Winchester 556 55 grain for $12.27 in stock now. 100 boxes just put on shelf. Limit is 3 per-person. I'll be heading up there for another 3 @ midnight. Better than paying .90 a round.

    Hello. Forgot to to this, new to NYFirearms, new to CCW. I have now had my pistol for 1 full week, and still have not shot it. I am the only one in my family (Extended included) that is interested in firearms, and so I know nobody that I can go shooting with. Looking forward to learning.
  13. Pistol Permits
    Well I am really considering getting a permit, and using it for work.

I have lived there for 13 years, and I don't know 4...

  15. Shooting Ranges
    I live about 5 minutes away from their club area, so I was wondering if there were any members of Tonawanda Sportsmen's (on Killian near Bear Ridge in Pendleton) that could vouch for it or provide info on whether or not they allow non-members to pay hourly rental range fees. I'd like to try...
