    Talking with my mother and out of nowhere she says that she wants to get her pistol license. My parents live Upstate in Delaware County so she won't have to deal with any of our Long Island BS and should have her license in hand pretty quickly, but she was asking me what she should look at in...

    I'm looking at a Naval Arms 1866 Yellowboy .38 cal. from the seventies. It has been a safe queen all its life and and the brass has a fine patina to it. What would you do? Would you clean the brass or leave it as is?
  3. Pump [Shotguns]
    Been browsing pump guns tonight, and it seems like many people think Remington's QC has gone down while Mossberg's has remained decent. So forgetting placement of safety, slide release, etc.. From a pure Reliability/Toughness/Build-Quality standpoint, which is the better weapon: A 590A1 from...

    I avoid auctions because I hate them, but I'm getting desperate looking for a couple of magazines for my Mossberg 44 US. So, what are the best auction sites for older stuff? Gunbroker? GunsAmerica? Gunauction? Others? (Yes, I have checked Numrich, Havlin, and all the big name retailers as...
  5. NY Specific Discussions
    Can anyone explain the following Pg 19 line 54 (VI) in the Safe Bill ? Does this mean that any rifle over 50 years old is exempt from this law or only parts of this law ? Or whatever. Thanks, New member moving back to NY

    Don't know how it happened but I have missed placed (lost) the gas ring to my 1187. Does anyone have an extra that they are will to sale or know of a local shop in Nassua that has them. I need them on the quick side, hopefully by Saturday. Thanks Dave

    So am I getting crankier with age, or is society just circling the drain? Had to head out to Ikea in Hicksville today to pick up a particular piece of cheap Swedish furniture for the man cave. So I get on the Northern Pkwy.... A big SUV Cadillac thing cuts me off dangerously at about 90+mph...

    So, I have a 13 year old Kimber CDP and a newer 2012 Super Pro Carry. As I compare the 2, the older gun seems like a far more serious piece of kit than the newer one does. The checkering on the front and back strap are much nicer. The mainspring housing is metal, as opposed to plastic. Even the...
  12. Semi-Auto [Rifles]
    Recently picked up an older (2001) Mini-14 magazine. It is like new and not damaged but just does not quite fit in a brand new Mini -14. With a little effort I can get it to lock in but then the bolt drags over the tabs on the top a bit. Is there a compability issue from older model Mini-14's...

    Great website with brochures of a lot of older cars. Mine was a used '51 Buick I paid $300.00 for. http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/buick/51bui/51bui.html

    When the Columbine shooting happened I was only in 5th grade. So it's safe to say the "gun control debate" was something i didn't know or care about. Upon reflection, I didn't feel unsafe when I went to school or at all, to me it was just another tragedy in a world of 6 billion people. I heard...

    Now that I'm older here's what I've discovered: 1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it. 2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran. 3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart. 4. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded. 5. Funny, I...

    Hi all, I recently experienced a slamfire with my pre-WWII Walther PPK. It discharged 7 rounds in fully-automatic mode...luckily no one was hurt and property damage was minimal (and is already repaired). I would like to have the firearm professionally disassembled, checked out and repaired...
