Thing is, Nassau is notorirous for their lack of competence in handling long guns - they've been sued (and they lost) several times over people's long guns...

 

Don't do anything stupid to get yourself and your vehicle searched on your trip and you'll be fine.....   Remember the phrase "No, I do not consent to any search"   

Actual conversation during traffic stop:

 

"Anything in here I need to know about?"

"Nope"

"Mind if I look?"

"I do not content to any searches"

"You sound like you know something about the law. Well, so do I- This is almost a gravity knife"

"and you're almost a cop. Anything else?"

[Hands back knife, license registration and insurance card, walks back to Sector car and leaves]

 

I do not recommend anyone else do what is listed above

Guys-

 

On the Remington 870 Express, does that have to be NY Compliant?

 

Grips, length, etc.?

The Remington 870 is a pump action not a semi-automatic, so you don't have to worry about any of the features like the grip or adjustable stock.  You do need to ensure the overall length is at least 26in and the barrel is at least 18in.  The 870 Express meets those requirements out of the box.

thanks for all the input and "support." I'll be in NY for at least a year.  there is a good chance that I will need to move again next year, so I'm hopeful if I do it will be to a state that respects the constitution and doesn't have leadership with their heads so far up you know where.

 

In the meantime, I look forward to learning more on this board and getting to know some of shooting community on LI

 

For right now, I think I'm going to sell my handguns and keep my long guns and work on that aspect of my collection for the year

Post your pistols here. If some one here likes them, It's just a matter of shipping them from a FFL in Md. to a FFL here in NY.
Just a thought.

Correct. You can just bring the long guns. But if you feel like shipping them, you can ship them to yourself. No FFL is required.

FFL only comes into play if shipping between two different parties (not the manufacturer either).

From what I've heard, Nassau wait times have improved a lot in the past couple of years. But the advice given at the counter is still horrible.

It's not rocket science

agreed, but getting a correct answer from the people in the police department seemed to be challenging, which is why I asked here.

I know- Definitely not knocking you, just aggravated that those who are tasked with enforcing those parts of the law are so used to making things up as they go along that you have to ask here. Always happy to help
