As did I.
We have had discussions in the past on other forums regarding having a local Long Island Forum to discuss (and vent  :)) about our New York State gun laws and in particular handgun issues. New forums start out small and slowly build as word spreads and hopefully that will be the case here.

There is certainly no shortage of gun owners on Long Island.

Wow now I feel unloved...I didn't find out about it there. Hell I'm more into bow hunting but I'm a STRONG proponent of the 2nd amendment and I'm secretary of a large gun club so I figured we could all benefit from a site like this.

Got a PM at TFL. I divide my time between Brooklyn (where I shoot at Metropolitan Rod and Gun Club) and a home in PA where I do my hunting and rifle shooting. I'm a member at the North Mt. Sportsman's Club.
Reloading and learning about cartridges and how they perform is a consuming hobby for me.  I spend a lot of time with black powder firearms.

Welcome Mas! A pleasure to have a celebrity here.... :)
We are hoping that over time the site becomes well known enough, and draws enough Long Island gun owners that we can ban together in a group and be able to exert some influence over our very restrictive gun laws here on Long Island as well as be informative and educational to attract new local gun owners to the great sport we all enjoy.

Thank you for stopping by!
