  1. Out Of State Licensing
    So I've traveled a few times with my firearm. Usually PAPD shows up at JetBlue within a few minutes. However for some reason a few days ago when leaving for FL... they took about 30-45 minutes to show up. Guys were real cool, very simple process, but man, 30-45 mintues... I should have grabbed...
  2. Jokes and more Jokes!
    A ship engine failed and no one could fix it. Then they brought in a chap with 40 yrs. on the job. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom. After looking things over, the guy reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine...
  3. Gun Stores & Gunsmiths
    Went to pick up a 10/22. Was greeted immediately at the door and asked if I needed any help in a polite but not pushy way. Fingered some 9mm uppers and another member of the staff came over to tell me the caliber of each upper ... resisted the urge to buy now. LOL While waiting for my turn to...
  4. FFLs Listings & Reviews
    I've been thinking if I still need to share this bad experience of mine of one of the gun store in Long Island. I understand and should be a must to check someone else Pistol License before showing one (as I did). But to ask a costumer "Where are you going to use this gun (pistol)?" in very...
  5. Nassau County Store Owners get Arrested
    I walked into a gun shop and the guy at the counter immediately looked up and said, "Hi, can I help you with anything?"
  6. AR - [Rifles]
    http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/Spartan_Side_Charge_Non_Reciprocating_Billet_Upper_p/jb-non-recip-upper.htm I have a Robinson XCR that has been 100% for about 4 years and I don't really like the charging handle location and feel on an AR, so I'm wondering about changing over some of my ARs...

  8. Suffolk County [Ranges]
    . I just got my Nassau County pistol license about 2 months ago ( after waiting for an ungodly 16 or so months) and haven't had much time to even start to shop around for what I might want as my first pistol.since work schedule takes up a great deal of my time, 3 or 4 double shifts a week is...
  9. Chit-Chat
    So I work at a bank currently, and something we need to do is verify official/bank checks. To do this we need to call customer service and have them verify that the person present has enough in their account to cover the check (e.g. if the check is made out for 500, and the person only had/has...

    Having an above ground pool installed, was supposed to be today. Young kid from them came and right off the bat, knew he didn't want to work today. Gave me a few excuses about a moist area (haha) and said their not doing the job. After wanting to knock him out for his attitude, they left. Spoke...
  11. Revolvers [Handguns]
    I'm starting to expand my collection of one and came across some used police .38 specials. SW 4" Barrel. Does anyone have any experience with buying them used? Are they typically in OK shape? or is it a buyer beware situation?
  12. Long Island Crimes
    I received two of the most bogus parking tickets imaginable for parking my cars on the street outside my house while my driveway was resealed. I think I can get them both dismissed -- on a couple of grounds -- first, is they charge a violation of a section of the town code that doesn't exist...
  13. AR - [Rifles]
    I want to build a dislike Cuomo compliant AR. I was thinking of 5.45 after seeing pics from another member. Does anyone have one? Thoughts? Pros & cons? suggestions?
  14. Gun Stores & Gunsmiths
    I was thinking about stopping by this place in the next week or two to check out ammo prices and firearm selection. Is it worth it? Being a NYC FFL I'm sure they're overpriced, but how overpriced are they?
  15. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    I'm interested in possibly getting a Steyr Scout rifle and interested in what people think of it who have one.
  16. Semi-Auto [Handguns]
    Anyone have any experience with a CZ 50. Thinking of getting one to go with my .32 Berettas and, as I don't want to spring for a real Walther PP, this is the poor man's version. (At least in terms of looks.) Gun seems to be in okay shape, it's C&R so no FFL here in WA state; and I just got...
  17. Chit-Chat
    So the wife and I decide to go out to the diner tonight for a quick bite to eat. As we're walking to the table, I get this huge wiff of BO. Some freaking stinks BAD. Smells like a foreign cab driver convention. We sit down and I can still smell it. The waitress comes over and I have my shirt...
  18. Semi-Auto [Handguns]
    Does anyone have any experience returning a pistol to Colt for warranty work? I just received my new Submarine Force edition 1911. It's a limited run engraved edition. The problem is that the rear sight looks like it was drifted in by a six year old! It is in cocked to the point that you can see...
  19. Car / Truck talk
    Reluctantly, I have to get rid of my Mustang (2008) convertible in favor of a vehicle that will handle well on snow. I've been considering the Outback... but other than the information I get on the 'net, the only opinions I get are from salesmen. Does anyone have any experience with the...
