  2. Suffolk County [Ranges]
    Planning to try out my new Henry 22 lever on of these Saturdays and have a few new guy questions. Is an Islip recreation card needed for residents? What else do I need to bring with me? I've made a list below based on other threads, etc: Rifle and ammo Cover / moving blanket for table top...

  4. Open Firearm Discussions
    So I've been checking out some milsurp rifles on Gunbroker that have no reserves and do not seem to get any bids, which are then re-listed. They do have a buy it now price which is the same as the listing price. What are the chances of making a low ball bid and successfully winning the auction...

    As a newb shooter, I'm wondering if it would better to learn the art of shooting with irons or a scope?
  6. Nassau County [Ranges]
    I know I can search the forum and probably find the answers but this section has been quiet for a while so time to perhaps stir up some new activity. How's the midday midweek scene at Mitchell Field? At what point does it start to fill in? I'm guessing before the 5p hour it's pretty quiet. AR...
  7. Nassau County (licensing/laws)
    Hey there everyone! Long time observer, first time poster here. First I'll start off by sharing that I was pleasantly surprised at how relatively painless the process was of getting licensed was for me. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. If I remember correctly, I handed in the initial...
  8. Bow Hunting
    Well I am in a bit of a dilemma here. I bought a complete set up from c&b and they were great. Supper happy with everything. Now I live about 2 miles from Suffolk archers and would eventually like to become a member and shoot there. Normally I have been shooting at c&b which is awesome but I...
  9. Hunting - Open Discussions
    Last year, for my first season hunting, I wore my military issue gore-tex camos, they were stiff, noisy, and god knows what they smelled like to a deer. This year I need to buy real hunting clothes. I plan to go out for bow hunting season as well as rifle(and maybe even let bow or shotgun)...
  10. Optics
    Sorry guys, I tried to search these before asking but was unsuccessful. I have a couple of newb questions. First, when using a holosight on a rifle that has a fixed front sight, are you supposed to align the reticle with it or use it totally independently? I am aware of co-witnessing, but I...
  11. AR - [Rifles]
    Hey guys, I have a Rock River Arms LAR-15 with the tactical mount. I recently purchased a Sightmark Ultra Shot QD reflex sight. The sight mounts fine on the rail on the mount but is too high for a co witness with either one of the iron sights which have been zeroed. Without going to the range...

  13. The Welcome Mat
    Figured this would be a great place to join since ya'll are local to me. Bought my first Rem 870 from Glen Cove Sports Shop. Sadly, they have closed. Would have liked to continue support since I try to favour mom and pop vs big box. Anyway, thinking of buying a Rem 700 or equivalent and...
