    I'm getting conflicting info and hope you guys can clear things up. Does a Civil War pistol in working order need an FFL transfer? Can it be sent directly to a New York State residence? And lastly, does it need to go to Yaphank? Thanks for your help in advance. I don't want Cuomo knocking on...

    I've worked on AR's and AK's and was just wondering Is it possible to forge your own 9mm pistol? How would I get the parts and go about it? I found this https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1093532540763/metro-arms-complete-1911-government-parts-kit Would it work if i constructed it?

    I had a great time at Freeport Saturday, and want to bring my 1911 next time. Is my S&W 1911PC single stack, or limited ten? It is factory stock except for the magwell, but it comes stock with lightening milling on the slide. I'm confused by the rules. Paul
