I'm about to pick up my Kimber and it does not have a spent cartridge to send to NY State Police. Is it still required? I thought i might have seen in another post that they no longer require it??? Not sure. Thanks for any help

It's called CoBIS and I believe it is dead.

The law for cobis is dead. As long as your dealer recieved it after the law was done away with then the caseing is not required.

On new firearms too? Any idea who told them that?

He was told by the state police division of Cobis to keep the shell casings of new pistols.
That's what I recall too.

Makes no sense to me but if it's what they said...

Doesn't that mean he keeps them (i.e. one doesn't need to be submitted into the CoBIS system)?

Yea I think its one of those we dont know whats going on so keep them things even though there is no law or state police rule requiring FFL's to keep any casing at all for firearms received by the dealer after the expiration of Cobis.

What are they going to do with all those cartridges they collected? they will be at state auction and reloaders show up like flies?
That a joke that law was.

I hope the FFLs just start a Jar, and throw all the brass in there disorganized. What a half ass attempt by the State Police to push the burden on the FFLs with no real solid guidance, and no legal right. COBIS was not only unfunded, the law was REPEALED. That should mean no more spent casings required, period. If I was an FFL, I'd probably refuse unless the SP could point out where in the the law it that requires me to hold the casings. And I'd hope they'd have a process for the FFLs to follow because from what I saw in Bob's post if you just "retained" them by throwing them all in one big jar, you've followed the "guidance" of the state police.
